This is just a quick heads up that some “behind the scenes” maintenance on the site began and today and will be ongoing for the next two weeks or so. Nothing that will directly impact the site for most visitors, but just some general clean up.
The number one thing that is being done is a complete clean up and revamping of our categories and tags, both of which have been a complete mess for far too long. I’m getting that under control, but there are a lot of posts that need to be reclassified and the main thing is digging through all the tags and keeping only what needs to be kept. There’s a lot of content duplication that needs to be cleaned up.
Secondary to that, a lot of the older posts are generally screwed up due to formatting issues and more notably missing images. Normally I’d say old posts don’t matter much, but the missing images can make other parts of the site look bad when those posts show up under the “related” section of a more current post. All of that will be cleared up as well, but of course there’s a lot of posts that need to be checked and corrected.
In the meantime, things such as the menu can be occasionally broken and categories and tags could disappear, be replaced, and so on.
Once all of that is completed, I’ll begin the process of updating our review indexes, which haven’t been updated in quite some time… particularly the movie reviews.
When it’s all said and done, in a couple of weeks at least, the site will be much more focused and more neatly organized.
