The Real Fake News in T&T

10 August, 2009

The Return of TriniFakeNews

Filed under: Site Update — trinifakenews @ 12:53 am
After an absence of one year and five months, we are reopening our printing presses. Many of you have been visiting the site daily. I assume it’s new people discovering the site. Otherwise you really need to get a life. Your silent cries for a worthy news source have not fallen on deaf ears. We will begin publishing once again. The original team is back with the exception of the Chinese labourers/printing-press-operators. We are sure you will come to love our brand new Filipino press-operators.
Our relaunch comes with many changes. We are now hosting the site at Tumblr. An unfortunate result of this is the loss of comments from older posts. We will attempt to import the comments but for now we have to live with this sad,sad loss. But, now we have this cool disqus comment system. The glass is half full people.
We have a new logo. It is reminiscent of the original version of the Trinidad Guardian logo. They may have decided to go all Web 1.5 on us with their new website but their original logo is still the best so we blatantly copied it.
We’re on Twitter! Yes now you can talk to us in near real-time. Again we follow Guardian except we do it better. Come on. A twitter bird in your background. How long did it take you to design that masterpiece?
What about Facebook you ask? Yes we are there also. We have a fan page setup and ready to go. You can become a fan here.
Those are the technology changes we’ve made. The only other change is that we have hopefully gotten better at what we do.
A lot has happened in this country since we stopped operations, but we will not dwell on those things. Great things are happening and we take our duty of bringing you the happy news very seriously. So let the happy times begin.
