Well, here you are at the capacious new premises of Club Troppo (formerly Troppo Armadillo).
Just about all the grunt, grind and skill involved in creating this shiny revamped WordPress blog has been contributed by the amazing (and amazingly patient) Stephen Bounds. We are deeply grateful.
Stephen has imported all the old Troppo Armadillo posts, and fixed most of the glitches that occurred during that process. If you notice any really irritating problems, please feel free to draw them to our attention in the comment box to this post. I can’t guarantee that I’ll fix them instantaneously, because I’m still learning the ropes of the WordPress interface and functionality. But I’m hoping all the bugs will be ironed out by New Year.
We are yet to enable the authoring access of any Troppo Armadillo contributors besides Nicholas and myself. I intend working through that process later today and will notify you by email about your access details. Please contact me if you haven’t heard by the end of today (Wednesday).
Finally, aspiring commenters should note that one of the anti-spam features we have installed here at Club Troppo is a gizmo whereby your initial comment will be placed on moderation i.e. it won’t actually appear on the blog until either Nicholas or I have approved it. However, the approval process is “once-only” and all subsequent comments should appear instantaneously. As with Armadillo, comments are welcome. We look forward to continuing robust but civil debate. Welcome to ze Club!
PS Many thanks also to the great Scott Wickstein (a true pioneer and mentor of the Australian blogosphere if ever there was one) for creating the old Troppo Armadillo site and hosting it gratis for the last two years.
