WP Tavern’s partically miscarried advance into modernity

Compare imagesCompare images

WordPress Tavern is a site focused on all things WordPress. Most likely it is the most well-perceived and respected source on all things WP, Gutenberg, BuddyPress, bbPress, and any project under the Automattic umbrella. Up to only recently, I was convinced this was Justin Tadlock’s personal weblog. Tadlock is also the author of the Members plugin.

A tavern is a place of business where people gather to drink alcoholic beverages and be served food, and in most cases, where travelers receive lodging. WP Tavern is a warm and inviting community where those interested in the software can hang out with fellow WordPressers to engage in enlightening discussions. Alas, the tavern no longer appears in its accustomed to setting with the wooden background with the content placed on a white sheet. The fitting, beer mug logo with its English style Serif Logotype has disappeared altogether.

While the majority of commenters welcome the modern structure of a no longer unique design, others miss the edition they are accustomed with.

Meanwhile the logo (above left) has been reintegrated but misses the charme of the logo/logotype combined (above right).

Logo Vergleich

I never noticed that the original beer mug logo slightly slanted to the left (above center) was made up of the mirrored letters ‘WP’ topped with beer froth. I only made the connection now that the new unslanted, de-mirrored, logo (above far left) was introduced.

Even with the its incorrectly inverted ‘WP’-letter logic, the beer mug logo we are perfectly comfortable with is a more elegant solution (above center). The new straightened Logo with the correct ‘WP’ lettering more closely looks like a hybrid of industry chimneys and user icons.

Responsiveness toward both parties would help demonstrate the inner makings of a responsive operating system for the web:

“Il Futuro”. Your Sunday song.

The Wirtschaftswunder (sometimes simply called Wirtschaftswunder) was a German band consisting of musicians Angelo Galizia (vocals, Italy), Tom Dokoupil (guitar, Czechoslovakia), Mark Pfurtschneller (keyboards, Canada) and Jürgen Beuth (drums, Germany). They were part of the so-called Neue Deutsche Welle that emerged as part of the English new wave/post-punk movement in the early 1980s and included bands such as D.A.F, Malaria!, or ZK (predecessor of Die Toten Hosen).

They entered the national arena with their single Der Kommissar (based on the theme music of the German criminal TV series Der Kommissar from the 1960s) and released their first album (Salmobray) in 1981. Their most characteristic feature was Angelo Galizia’s singing with a heavy Italian accent. After signing with label Deutsche Grammophon, they released their 2nd album (The Wirtschaftswunder), which was not as experimental as the first. After their 4th album Pop Adenauer in the same year and their final single in 1984 they dissolved.

Sure enough, that is Maisie Williams singing ‘Let it go‛ from Disney’s ‘Frozen’. And it’s not so much that she has grown (in size) as it is that the audience has grown older.
