Changes to da joint

Just a brief note to let all 10 of my readers know of a few tweaks to RcktMan’s Launching Pad that have taken place in recent months and days…

1. Unmoderated Comments As of today, comments on RcktMan’s Launching Pad are finally UNMODERATED! Which means once you hit the “send” button, your comment should appear IMMEDIATELY. πŸ™‚

I had them moderated because I was getting absolutely BLASTED with spam. Like more than 70 spam comments A DAY. A big warm gooey THANK YOU to Scott-O-Rama for helping me out and installing a great plugin to help combat this nasty monster. (The plugin, should you be interested, is called Spam Karma and is available by clicking on the words Spam Karma as they appear in this sentence.)

So if you were inhibited from commenting because of the moderation, worry no more. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your patience.

2. Launching Pad Supporters You may have seen the little ad for the Launching Pad along the sidebar for some time now, and before that seen some ads for other blogs. If you have any interest in BlogAds, I invite you to check it out, and place one with RcktMan’s Launching Pad. It could generate both of us a little revenue as well as build interest in your blog!

3. Gravatars Scott-O-Rama also helped me to finally get the Gravatars plugin working on comments– so if you have a Gravatar, you will see your smiling (or pouting in my case) face alongside your comment.

4. “More” after this In yesterday’s post you may have noticed a “More” button at the end of the second paragraph. If you didn’t click that little button, you probably missed something. πŸ™‚ Occasionally I will now be posting split-style– mainly to conserve space on longer posts and keep more posts on the main page.

5. Stay tuned for more changes and surprises to keep you coming back.

I promise you’ll like them. πŸ˜‰
