Welcome to the WinkyFace about page. On this page you will see who we are, what the site is all about, some basic pointers on how to navigate around the site and some overall information about WinkyFace.com If you have any more questions or want more information about the site, what you can do to help, or just want to send me hate email my “Email Aaron” link in the “Who we are:” section is the best contact. Thanks for visiting WinkyFace.com
Who we are (and by we, I mean me and my dad):
I’m Aaron and this is my site. As a self-proclaimed douche, and a damn proud one, I write what and when I want to write it. Everything is fair game and no one is safe! I dedicate this blog to all the morons, shit-heads, douche bags, cunty liberals and republicans, to the people who don’t know how to use a computer and/or the interwebs, the “we have no idea why you are famous” celebrities, Facebook users, tweeters, other bloggers, gamers, gear heads, meat heads, whores, angels, tough-guys, intellectuals, friends and family. I love you all and you all make what I do easy (because you are all so fucked up it gives me a shit ton to write about) and yet for some reason you all support me 100%! I enjoy what I do, I do this for my own pleasure and fun but get a ton of enjoyment from the feedback. Some people don’t get it, others do. To the ones that can see through my sarcasm and humor and actually get it I appreciate you coming back and taking it on the chin. For those you who don’t get it, well you’re a moron anyway and please send hate email. I will gladly use it as a post one day. Email Aaron If you want to follow WinkyFace.com on twitter it’s @winkieface and to follow me it’s @sn0wcrash (that’s a zero, not an oh: SN”zero”WCRASH). I want to make sure that no one thinks I hide my identity or make who I am a secret.
This is “Book”Mark. He is my dad and every Monday he does the book reviews. Yeah I know right, short and sweet, but what the fuck, he knows how to write. Why am I writing this for him anyway. I’m sure he wants to put something here that’s more “about” him but do you really care? Did you even read mine? Or are you just skimming over this whole thing? Anyway, if you want to suggest a book to review, thank him or just bust his balls use this link: Email Mark Also feel free to comment on his posts.
Basic “about” Information
First I’m going to assume you are a new reader and wondering “what the fuck have I stumbled across??” This guy is an asshole. Well you are kind of right. I am a huge dick. I show no respect for my readers, often call them names, belittle friends and family, use private conversations and interactions for posts and you are probably wondering if this place is even worth hanging out in. If you are wondering that then NO it isn’t. If you understand life is one fucking absurd joke and EVERYONE (myself included) is a moron and a douche and if you have a thick skin and not much is off-limits then you will enjoy this site and posts. Also if you can overlook shit like fucked up spelling, horrible sentence structure, punctuation, the use of quotes and brackets WAY too much and ADHD rambling that sometimes after a 1000 word post has no point then again you will probably enjoy yourself.
A little warning for you new people. This is an important rule/warning: It’s my site! I know some of you are going to want to have a battle of wits, challenge my opinions, a little pissing contest, comment on how you know something I don’t or whatever little thought comes across in your little feeble mind. Here is the thing. You are going to lose. I may not have a huge following but I do have a following and with that comes a flow to the site. The flow is that we share the same views, thoughts, and get enjoyment out of ripping apart morons. So if you feel lucky go ahead. I will never ban or block someone for trying. Though if you are a troll and just flaming you will be dropped quicker than Lorena Bobbit drops a penis. Though they don’t post much, I have seen it before, loyal readers come up to the plate when needed. And one more time (come on say it with me…) Its my site. If you are so full of energy and things to say, start your own blog.
Basic site navigation
this is the navigation bar:
for example morons, you are here:
Pretty simple right. Home, Page names, drop down names , etc. This is a good way to get around the site if you are looking for something specific. Sometimes these headings will change and sometimes you will find stories that fit more than one category. I know no one really uses this shit but hey it looks professional.
on the web:
This is pretty simple. Quick links to the Facebook fan page, the WinkyFace twitter account and the RSS feed. If you don’t know what the RSS feed is then you probably don’t need to be clicking on that.
WTF is this?!?!:
No, I’m serious, I really have no fucking clue with this does. I know it’s NOT our mailing list! (that is coming soon). This is some plug-in that came with some other plugin for my site. I think it sends an email when a new post has been posted?? Even I am a subscriber but I haven’t got a single email it yet. Who knows. I don’t even know if I trust it. It’s probably safer to not even bother putting your email address in there. Who the fuck knows where it goes. Right now let’s just use it as a place holder for once I set up the newsletter. Maybe if one of you figure out what the hell is going on you can let me know.
i know it looks funny, but this is sharing and tags:
At the bottom of every post you will see this. This is two things. First the little icons pop-up when you put your mouse over them. This is where you can “share” the post to Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon Reddit and through your email.
Below that you see Tags: these serve two purposes. One for shit you don’t need to know and has to do with search engines, but for you they are clickable. Take the example above. If you were to click on “video” it would bring you to a page that lists ALL the posts that have that tag in it. So if you read something about Hugh Jackman being a douche and think “wow I would love to see what else Aaron has said about good ol’ Hugh” well you would click on his name. Also anything in red like that is a link (purple if you have visited it already).
looking for something??:
Pretty simple here. This is where you search for something. If you want to see posts that have the word Facebook in them or something like that. You type Facebook and hit enter. Really easy. But since you are all morons I figured I’d point that out for you anyway.
post a comments:
You will see this at the end of every post. This is where you leave a comment, feedback, or whatever the fuck you feel like. This is your chance to speak and shine or fall flat on your face. Feel free to use it. I enjoy comments. Good or bad. Again as above don’t expect to get off clean, friend or foe, everyone is fair game.
This is what it’s going to look like when you check out the site from your iPhone. (not sure how it looks on other phones/devices). Some basic information about what you see. First is the site name, a little down arrow (more on that later) a search option (more of that later as well) the and a list of posts. That little red circle with the 6 on it in the picture above is how many comments that post has. You can also see what category the story falls under and the tags related to the post. Nothing much more I can say about that. Basically this is the sites “home page” via iPhone. The little arrow to the right of the title will give you a little more “preview” of the story. Kind of like how the non mobile site gives you a little snip-it on the home page before you jump in to the story.
the drop down arrow:
That drop down arrow brings this up thing up. Home (brings you home) RSS feed brings you to the RSS feed page (again if you don’t know what the fuck an RSS feed is then don’t worry about it) E-Mail, well that emails me. And of course you can see Tags and Categories. That will give you a list of those with a number in ( ) telling you how many posts are listed in that tag or category. Again pretty simple stuff.
Like the search information talked about above for the non mobile site this is the same thing. You basically use this to search the site (wow am I really explaining this?!?!)
Ok from left to right I’ll let you know what these icons do. Email, Twitter, Facebook and social-bookmark. Email is not like the other email this one doesn’t email me. This is where you would email the story link to someone. Twitter is where you would tweet the link, Facebook is where you would share the story to your wall and the social-bookmark is where you would post the story up to places like Digg and sites like that. (which if you happen to be users of those sites I would appreciate the posting and rating on some of those sites)
turn it off!
If you don’t like the mobile site and want to shut it off, this is where you would do that. It’s at the bottom of the pages. Don’t worry it never goes away. If you find that you hate the full blown site on your device and want to go back to mobile just turn it back on. Like I said this option is ALWAYS there, mobile version or not.
bookmark it!! make an app for that..
This is more of an iPhone lesson and can be used for any site but fuck those sites, my icon is WAY better. If you want to bookmark the site for easy access, this is what the icon looks like on your iPhone! (of course you can rename it to whatever you want). This is done via Mobile Safari and not any options on my mobile site. On the bottom bar of Safari is the back, fwd, box with arrow, bookmarks and tabs (you can see it on the pictures above this, and no not the picture directly above moron). If you click the box with the arrow you get the options to add bookmark, mail, tweet, print, etc. One of those options is “Add to Home Screen” That’s the option you want. When you do that it creates this little icon right on your home screen. And poof “there is an app for that”!! What that does is brings you directly to the site. No clicking on Safari, or typing in WinkyFace.com or any more of that bullshit.
Too be continued/updated…..
