Welcome to the new Planet Manu!

Saturday, November 17th, 2007

Well, it’s been a couple of years since I was last updating this site. I’m not sure if anyone missed it but, regardless, Planet Manu is back in active mode. This time around things will be a little different. I’ll probably still be posting links to interesting articles when I see them, but what really motivated me to upgrade the blog and bring it back to life is the coming onslaught of upgrades and BETA features at Literotica.com.

Those of you that have been around Lit for a few years know that we have been working hard on about a million upgrades to the site. Well, some of those changes are starting to see the light of day. As the new features are put into BETA mode, I want to have a place to post about them and, very importantly, get feedback from all of you about what you think is going wrong or right.

For example, when we changed the front page of Literotica.com from an old HTML table layout to a modern CSS tableless design, there were (as expected) some problems with a few of the less-used browsers. Lit members were nice enough to email me with their problems and we were able to overcome most (hopefully all) of them. However, if there had been a central depository for complaints/reports, I think bug fixes could have happened quicker. Right now, the communication is only between myself and each user via email. With this blog, and the comments on each blog post, we can do better by including user-user communication in the equation. When more than one user is having the same problem, together we can try to figure out quickly what those users have in common (browser, OS, ISP, etc.) and quickly resolve the problem.

So, the overall idea behind bringing Planet Manu back (other than posting links to random celebrity sex scandals around the world) is to create a place where I can share information on the ongoing Literotica upgrades and you can share your opinions of the upgrades and let me know about any problems you encounter. That’s the idea, at least. We’ll see what happens!

Thanks for reading and, once again, Welcome Back!
