The number of us here who care about the sw&d aesthetic of "I would like to look dope as heck but not ridiculous" is pretty small compared to the majority of people on styleforum who are mostly these weird hyper-conservative cavemen who want other people to think they're into "the finer things in life" while grunting nonstop in the "POST TITTY PICS" thread

This. I've found that perceptions of Styleforum, from non-members (bloggers, tumblrs, brands, etc...) vary considerably depending on their particular focus. I don't think that it's a particularly bad thing, but I can see from where the annoyance comes.

This thought just jumped into my mind:

Fok, are there any aspects about the SF community that you just don't like? Like, do the members piss you off in a consistent and particular way? There is the perception that SF is too "snobby," or "elitist," and often times not welcoming enough (or actively unwelcoming) to noobs. Are these issues in your eyes? SF generates a shit-ton of views, and it hosts a lot of affiliates—so maybe those are just pesky little problems if they are even problems to begin with. But yeah—members: do they pose problems for you?

This forum would be much better off without the members, IMHO

Some members want there to be walled off sections, in MC, particularly, where the riff raff can't get in, which is anathema to my vision of this place, which is a hangout place where the only prerequisites for entry are that you are at least a bit interested in clothes, willing to share, and not too much of a dick. A lot of that is a reaction to the natural growth of the site, and to new members who come in thinking that they are the shit, and not taking time to ease into the community. When we were not so big, it was easier to welcome and acclimatize new members. At this point, there are aver 1 million unique viewers/month (some people have literally lurked for years) thousands of posts a day, and upwards of 100 new members, across many subforums, so the scale is dramatically different.

We have something called the "Dubiously honored" program, running on a trial basis in MC right now, which allows specific members who are both 1) knowledgeable, and 2) Evenhanded and chill that can moderate their own threads to keep them more or less on topic. This means that we can retain good members, keep some high quality threads clean, while not stifling people's natural inclination to just shoot the shit. People want to learn about new stuff, but this is supposed to be a fun bar, not a lecture hall. Only 2 members of SW&D (Rach and aeglus) are "Dubiously honored" right now, and there doesn't seem to be a need for that program here, where people tend to be a little more chill and accepting, even when they strongly disagree. In the future, maybe we'll need it.

We have also made (and continue to expand) sections like the SF101 thing, which gives newcomers a place to start, since so much of our traffic comes from people asking things like "How should I buy my new suit?" I'm not sure that an analogous section could be written for SW&D, because, though nothing truly "timeless", the speed at which designer and contemporary clothes cycle through trends is astounding. Just a few years about, it was all about the denim. Now, denim posts are fewer and fewer, and a question like "how should I match my jeans and my shoes" is not only subjective, but tied to the zeitgeist of a particular moment. For example, without a consensus on silhouette (should slim pants be matched with slim shoes, or are chunky boots and shoes a good contrast to slim pants) the type of easy answer many new members are looking for just cannot be written. It would be nice if people could point newbies to the Q&A threads, or even the SF101, rather than just blowing them off or trolling them.

Someone tell me what's going on with Gilt's Calvin Klein Collection sale. All the blazers seem uncharacteristically cheap and lack the label's tell-tale details. As if they're from another line entirely.

So wait, what makes someone talented in the "marital arts?" The ability to stave off divorce for, say, ten years or so? A low counseling bill?
