I removed my Donate button.
First of all, it was ugly, and annoyed the crap out of me having to look at it.
Second, I only added one because people kept asking me how they could support me, and I figured that putting it there would get people to stop asking, as well as giving them a way to support me without needing to have game development skills of their own to lend.
And third, no one used it, not even the people who were interested in supporting me.
The RSS Feed button is staying, though. Ever since I stuck it there, my weekly traffic has practically tripled, and my page views have stayed around 200 consistently, so I can only imagine that people have been using it and enjoying that it's been there.
I still really hate my background. It's really ugly and I hate having to look at that damn... whatever the hell it is off to the right, there. That claw thing...
This. Whatever the hell this is, I hate it being there. It's so stupid-looking.
And whatever the hell is on the left side, it looks like sewage... or mud, or something. Whatever it is, it's really unattractive.
Like I said before, the background images that Weebly has by default are pretty trash. This one is the only one that wouldn't have been so wildly off topic that it caused confusion.
And I can't just do a collage of classic games like other people do, because I'm a dev.
I don't want to give the false impression that I worked on any of the classic titles by putting them in the background. It's too dishonest.
I may have an opportunity to change it, though. The return to my current project gives me an excuse to do environment pixel art. So I should have something to replace it with soon enough.
I was actually just about to say "I'll let you know when I change it." but come to think of it, I'm pretty sure it's an instant update, and that kind of change would be pretty self-evident. It would be a waste of my time to alert you on the same blog...
