wmtc redesign is complete: goodbye L-girl

For anyone interested, the wmtc redesign is complete. All the tabs (static pages) along the top are now written.

Tonight at midnight, "L-girl" will be retired and "laura k" will take her place.

I've used the name L-girl since I first got online in the late 1990s, as part of a bisexual women's community. I feel a bit sad saying goodbye to that name. But it's time.

Congrats Laura! Keep up the good work, and good writing! Always a pleasure.

Laura K, Laura K, Laura K--I WILL remember. School just gave me a new 7 number login and an 8 letter password (just random letters from the grabbag of 26) and I already have both of those memorized in my 65 year-old mind, so Laura K ought to be a cinch.

I'm pretty conservative and if you had asked me a month ago if you should re-design, I'd have said, "It ain't broke, why fix it?" But this really does look very spiffy and sharp. You made a believer out of me!

John, you - and anyone else - are still welcome to call me L-girl or L. I would enjoy it! It would help me keep the spirit of L-girl alive.

I'm only changing the name for writing and posting purposes. Please do continue to call me whatever you like.

Within reason. :)

And thank you! I'm glad you like the new look.

I don't get the impression, whatever your moniker is, that the spirit of l-girl is in any danger of diminishment.

Aw, you'll always be LG to me. Happy new year, wmtc!

Hey Wrye! Happy New Year, old friend.

I just found this comment on the wrong thread. It was meant to be a reply to JohnGF above...

Hey, that's nice to hear. I purposely chose something with "girl". Meeting younger women who weren't afraid of the word girl, who didn't think it was necessarily an insult - hanging out online with women of all different ages - I felt younger, more playful (emotionally, mentally), and I wanted to celebrate that. Then as I got older, the name was like retaining a piece of that more youthful mindset.
