改版碎碎念第二彈

網站又...又改版了(今年再重改版就剁手指)
九月改了兩次 十月改了一次 十一月又改了這一次
邊改版邊到處物色架站平台和網頁模版,改了又失敗失敗了又改,好不容易才把我陳舊的架站概念一步步更新到比較符合現況。直到今年九月之前我對網頁排版的概念大概都還停留在七八年前吧...那個噗浪、臉書和推特等社群網站、漸漸取代傳統個人靜態網頁的時代。

最初我是租空間買網域、自己用Frontpage架網頁、使用國內平台的免費部落格、再到後來是付費安裝Wordpress部落格。
後來經營重點幾乎移轉到WP部落格,那時畢竟不太會挖教學文、也沒啥設計天份,用Frontpage架個站太耗時但成果不佳;接著又出現像是weebly這樣的架站平台,輕鬆使用拖拉方式就能直覺架好個站,從頭到尾免費,懶得極端點可在一晚之間就把個站架出來;現今一些常見的lightbox圖片瀏覽、nav bar的drop down動畫、靠自己安裝很麻煩、還得要懂一點css和java,但大部份的架站平台都已經自帶這些元件了。於是乎我留著部落格,個站則搬到了weebly上頭。

從2009年辦了噗浪帳號開始,直至2011年(精確時間點我也記不起來)我停留在噗浪、湯不熱等社群網站的時間已經遠遠超過經營自己個站和個人部落格的時間,雖有個weebly個站但始終沒花多少心思在上頭,各種網頁排版的概念也一直沒更新。正所謂科技越方便就越依賴,過十年就成了個笨蛋的顯明例子。

之前說過,這幾年感覺自己的作息模式和社群網站合不來,但個站擺爛中也少了願意回頭的動力,在網路上少了可以當家的地方,對一個成天盯電腦螢幕的阿宅來說總覺得哪裡怪怪的。即使這次改了版、也還是有諸多地方不滿意啦,但對之後的改版、多少抓出一點方向了。

改版&排版碎碎念

本家網站+tumblr+blogger都改版了。
管理人叭子平日太過神出鬼沒所以應該是沒什麼人注意到。

A. 本家改版

本家新版面的訴求大致如下:

  • 讓中英文雙語並列,懂中文懂英文的人都能逛我的網站。
  • 該有的說明都給它寫上去。
  • 重整分頁的分類法,才不會找說明的時候不知道去哪一頁找。
  • 除了歷史更新記錄以外,重要的更新(或消息)讓它一直置頂。
  • 重整連絡方式,把訪客留言匯到同一個留言系統裡,這樣我每天只需要開一個留言系統+信箱來回覆訪客留言,不然要兼顧每個分站(噗浪、湯不熱、微博...etc)實在很崩潰。

因為中英文夾雜,想得到一個清爽版面變得比較困難,原本在九月初做了一個以淺灰色為基調的網站,但成果看起來是要乾淨不夠乾淨、要特色沒特色、要醒目又不夠醒目,結果一怒下又改了一次!暫時沒有特別合適的底圖就把畫一半的塗鴉拿來墊檔了。
塗鴉全圖可以在這裡看到:

話說新版面非常不適合用手機觀看,或是用寬度解析低於1600px的電腦螢幕來看,現在做個網站要兼顧多平台和多解析瀏覽真的太痛扣orz
weebly大部份架站主題都自帶responsive功能(會隨著顯示視窗的大小來調整版面顯示效果),看似方便但這功能其實會讓版面變得更亂...

其實架到一半真的很有一種「乾脆付費租個wordpress部落格當主站用」的打算,結果WP仍然和我的恐龍瀏覽器打架,每次進到後台就掛點。orzorz
而這幾年用weebly架站的感想是...不管版面怎麼排,都可以一眼就看出是用weebly架的。
就是很單調啦。怎麼排都醜醜的,很哀傷。而且我的作品和清爽風真的很不搭。
唯一的解決之道是加裝一些第三方插件、手動修改HTML和CSS、或自己做一些小素材來點綴,一時間內還做不出比較能看的素材,之後應該會再朝這方面繼續改良吧,想把底圖換成收斂點的自製素材。

這年頭還有人在這樣浪費時間搞個站的嗎?

Tutorial of ordering my fanbook outside Taiwan (PayPal)

This tutorial is for customers who can only pay through PayPal. If you have a credit card, please check another tutorial: Tutorial of ordering my fanbook outside Taiwan (credit card)

It is highly recommended using credit card as prior payment method if you're having trouble reading Chinese. Since Lazyyy for now is more of a English-friendly website. And you don't need to afford the fee charged by PayPal. However if PayPal is your only paying choice, then Seemoon will be the better shop for you.

Please notice that those artists create and publish merchandise by themselves. These shops are only consigned for helping artists selling merchandise. They are not responsible for merchandise publishing, quality and content.

Seemoon homepage 
Seemoon shopping platform 
Seemoon's official Q&A 
Contact Seemoon, if you're having any trouble shopping in their store 

If you're only interested in buying my merchandise, you can check this link:
OFF RECORD on Seemoon shopping platform
You can check the details of all my merchandise in my homepage:
OFF RECORD - BOOK
OFF RECORD - ACCESSORY

If the merchandise is not shown in those two pages, it means it won't be replenished in shops again.

I've been told by the staff of Seemoon that they had already shipped my fanbooks to other countries. If my merchandise you're interested buying are not shown in Seemoon's shopping platform, you can leave your request in the comment section under this post. If the merchandise are still in stock, they will be replenished for selling as soon as possible (about 1-2 weeks).

Tutorial of ordering my fanbook outside Taiwan

Even if you're not living in Taiwan, now you can still order my fanbooks & accessories online! In LAZYYY store!

Actually my books are already available for worldwide shipping through online stores such as LAZYYY and Seemoon, but these stores are founded in Taiwan and most pages are written in Traditional Chinese. I have been asked "how can I buy your books if I don't live in Asia?" for years, and mostly my answer is to write a request letter to service staff of the stores I consigned. Recently the staff of LAZYYY told me they're welcoming overseas orders. Now they accepted credit card as payment method. And most Q&A are written in Chinese/ English / Japanese now. LAZYYY store now seems almost English-friendly.

LAZYYY is a doujin shop and also an online shopping platform, same as most of my consigned shops listed in this page: Doujin shop & print store- shipping info. If you're familiar with some famous Japanese doujin shops, like K-books or Toranoana(とらのあな), they are also the same kind of shops, mostly dedicating on selling fanbooks(doujinshi).

Please notice that those artists create and publish merchandise by themselves. These shops are only consigned for helping artists selling merchandise. They are not responsible for merchandise publishing, quality and content.

I made a small testing, pretending I'm incapable of reading Chinese and try to place an order. There are still some Chinese only pages which may confuse many customers. Overall, the process is easy and convenient. If you have a credit card, just apply for a LAZYYY membership account and you're ready to go.

If the merchandise shows red texts "缺貨", it means the merchandise is sold out. It could be available again once it's been replenished.
You can check the details of all my merchandise in my homepage:
OFF RECORD - BOOK
OFF RECORD - ACCESSORY

If the merchandise is not shown in those two pages, it means it won't be replenished in shops again.

If you can only pay through Paypal, Seemoon is the recommended platform. Please check another tutorial here: Tutorial of purchase my fanbooks outside Taiwan (PayPal)

INSIDE最後段劇情腦洞整理

7/11 edit: 經過噗友指正!修改了頭盔男和雲梯車那一段的看法。


遊戲在STEAM上架第一天就迫不急待打開來玩,神作!
非常喜歡,我的第一輪全程短短四個小時,後勁卻非常強烈。但是!
劇情太撲朔迷離了。
因為太困擾只好上網到處爬別人的解釋,但怎麼看都覺得和自己觀察到的一些細節兜不起來。
雖然我理解力不怎樣又加上草包一個,還是想說就來整理一下我看到的矛盾之處吧,目前只先整理針對遊戲最後一段的感想,還沒玩過INSIDE的朋友千萬!不要!破壞親自體驗遊戲的樂趣!
INSIDE的後半段太震撼了請一定要自己體會一遍XD

以下內容建議已經知道劇情的人再點開來看!
