What is paly.win?
This is a streamlined version of the bloated Paly website. It loads much faster and only includes links which are used on a daily basis.
Why is paly.win necessary?
paly.net is (1) slow to load, (2) not mobile-friendly, and (3) difficult to navigate. paly.win fixes all of these problems. It's not intended to be a replacement for paly.net, but simply the site that you use regularly.
Why the name paly.win?
It's short, easy to remember, and hopefully evokes positive emotions.
Where did you get the descriptions for the Paly publications?
From their website. If you're part of a publication and would like to change the description to something reasonable, contact me.
Why do you use system fonts? Why not custom fonts?
Sadly, custom fonts slow down sites considerably. In the effort to make paly.win as fast as possible, I decided against custom fonts and instead employed system fonts (my deepest apologies if you continue to use Internet Explorer). Fun fact - thanks to CSSTricks, this site utilizes the same font stack as Github.
I'm good at coding. Can I contribute?
How do I contact you?
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some good reasons to contact me:
- Complaints: "How dare you put Paly video productions at the bottom of the publications page?!"
- Incorrect information: "Flex is actually mandatory and year round and 24/7."
- Suggestions: "You should add a link to Fox News so you can maintain a semblance of media impartiality."
- If anyone has the time/experience to utilize the Google Calendar API to pull events from the Paly Calendar, please contact me.
