      Still have a bunch to do, but it’s progressing nicely. Later I’ll have a custom video on the front page.

    Coming soon, Earn Ningis to get badges. What do badges do? Nobody knows.

      Forums are 3rd on the To Do list as per getting all this nonsense functioning. I added badges to profiles tonight, just a few to get started. They are rewards for site activities. Everyone also has a balance of Ningis. I’ll explain that more as I get the accompanying stuff in place, but they are also reward points. The structure for badges and Ningi is experimental at this point, and may change.

    …I am adding features quicker than I can understand them, lol. Lots to sort, lots to do.

    The functionality appears to improved quite a bit, great job syncing the intertubes of it all, understandably it is a work in progress. I was able to update profile and cover photo seamlessly, just not sure how many Ningis I now have accrued, and where to spend them :-p
    I recall if memory serves a service called Ning from many years ago — is that part of what you have installed, hence Ningi?

      I’ll have some more coming on how we’ll be using the Ningis. Mostly they can be used to buy Pu, but because of inflation in this star system I am afraid the exchange rate will be 1000% higher than the Galactic standard.

        …The Ningi, you might recall, is a galactic unit of currency, valued at one eighth of a Triganic Pu. It is a triangular rubber coin six thousand eight hundred miles along each side. Galactibanks refuse to deal in Ningis, declaring them “fiddling small change.”

          …In all seriousness though, the Ningis will eventually be used to buy things and stuff from the GH store that does not yet exist. I would like to implement membership cards and member packages among other things. The Ningis will allow a way to earn the package and just pay for shipping. Members will of course be able to just buy the membership cards and packages outright via paypal, but knowing that not everyone can or will want to shell out I figured it would be fun to have a way to earn it. As I am sure you’ve noticed they are rewarded for site activity. The system is experimental at this point, and the values may change. I’ll be setting up a new menu for the whole shabang in the near future, but eventually members will be able to exchange Ningis between each other, and a banking system that will allow for compound interest on them. There will also be a leaderboard and way to check your balance. It’s a crypto currency so cryptic that it will have absolutely no value in terms of Terran funding.

    LOL, this made me smile, and I did not recall at the time, as brain memory is still fluctuating under new diabetic meds. But all sounds rather hoopy, and looking forward to writing again on here.

    It is probably due to your working on it, but I tried going into WordPress Admin area where I would work on posts and am not able to as it redirects to the site now, all I can see are stats. How do I work on updating the Thumbtoast page, such as the sub-page I created for last year and this years album? Plus post articles, do I write one on my profile and it will appear on the main page?

    I figured it out, and replied to you via facebook. Thanks for upgrade, not going to mess with anything at all bro, you know that, but saw the admin area and posts. When I can get to it, soon I hope, I can update the THumb Toast page, and place it within the main Toast page as a link, rather than the drop down menu on old site. I also saw the “Write” button on top right and click it, which brings me to creating a post, which I will field test soon 🙂

      I have some menu restructuring ahead, but it wont affect you updating the page at all. You didn’t have the write on the right button? I’ve had that, thought all authors for the site did lol

    I probably did, and it appears on my own wordpress pages, but not awake enough and looking at the site closer than I have in prior days it escaped me–so may not be a technical error on site end, but my own. Apologies for crap eyeballs this morning, and you doing things you didnt plan, but still having some issues health wise.

    Concerning posts, I was not only considering finishing up the Toast album soon, but a test post on this new site of actual Field Research– wild foraging and hiking I have done of late

    That’d be cool. I have a bit coming soon called “The Tribe of the Sunburned Beer Belly” about beach life. The beach is like my religion you savvy

    WOW!!! Can I become a member of the Tribe of the Sunburned Beer Belly? LOL 🙂 The woods are my own religion, and I do savvy, probably as the beach is to you. I posted pics of our local beach in my facebook album yesterday. I microdosed fungi, and went woodswalking looking for edible fungi. I ended up sitting on the beach toward the end of my jaunt writing about a dozen pages in my notebook yesterday. I later transcribed the notes into a document and may post it as an article on our site or elsewhere– a bit concerning how getting out into Nature can be healing.
