Constructive ideas on improving the forum - Page 35

I'd love to see a WTB sub-forum. As someone who doesn't frequent the site often, it's hard to shop unless I'm looking for something very specific.

Just had an idea. How about including in the stats section a ranking of post number/thumbs ups (average thumbs ups per post) - i.e. a crude indicator of who posts the most quality posts, rather than just who posts the most posts.

I was wondering how many posts I need before I'm considered an "active member"? I've been trying to add a signature, but most of my profile is locked up until I become an active member at least that's what it says. Some help?

Did the feedback page that shows your open classified get updated!!!!???? I THINK SO icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif It actually shoes all 15 open items now which is awesome

There's been a discussion going on in the "Vass pr0n" thread about people constantly asking the same questions: prices, how to order etc etc.  Being a thread of hundreds of pages, people tend to ask rather than wade through the whole thing looking, which can be irritating, but understandable.

 

 

What might be helpful would be a "sticky" thread of shoe references that's always at the top of the CM list, containing links to brochures, price lists, last shape comparisons, etc.  No pics or commentaries, no posts just maybe an admin edit: a list of attached files for each maker in alphabetical order. 

 

I've seen the same questions and irritation in a number of threads - Carmina, Meermin etc.  So how about it?  A "lesser-known makers reference page"?  My suggested entry for Vass (just posted in that thread would be:

yes, when do you exactly do you become an active member.  one can't really participate in discussion when posts take 9+ hours to be approved.

I don't understand this rule either.
I mean it makes complete sense for the classifieds area.
But for general discussions? What is the approval process there to stop?

Bot spamming? Surely one post approval would be enough?

Remove the moderation on new users earlier. I have posted eight, and have been waiting 12 hrs for approval on two or three others. This makes it impossible to participate in a debate in 2013. A troll will be scared off after even awaiting approval for one post, the fun goes away and so does the troll. I suggest removing the approval after one post.

Regardless, having to wait 8+ hours for a post to be approved in a fast-moving thread almost guarantees no one will read your post.

Not that anyone reads this thread but...

Please remove the field to put the link to the item when leaving feedback. Nobody wants to have to go look up the link and it just makes lazy people like me not leave feedback.

I find the category of "CLASSIC MENSWEAR" to be highly restrictive to those who wish to explore variations on a "Modern Tailored" look. People visiting Styleforum for the first time have only two choices- streetwear and a fairly specific set of rules and looks under Classic Menswear. That leaves a huge gap, IMO.

There are plenty of people who enjoy a combination of denim, chinos, unconstructed jackets, leather coats, collared shirts that go beyond blue, accessories, etc.....

It is a look that is found in the creative community (arts, advertising, tech, design, etc) that is comfortable, suitable for most business settings, follows fashion to a degree and fairly international. It has no interest in the head-to-toe look of Trad or preppy because it is progressive and can be found in most major cities of Europe and the US.

OK Styleforum, it is time to move ahead and add more options to mens style....

Really, I feel the opposite: the "Classic Menswear" section already has people wearing blazers with jeans and cargo pants, and even sneakers.  Surely that is covered by the definition "streetwear"?

 

By all means have another section, or a crossover thread, or whatever, but what's wrong with letting "Classic" mean just that?

I agree. Let Classic be classic style and "rules". Let it be the place for traditional suit, tie and dress shoe combinations.

But so many industries and professions don't dress like that any more. Lets have an area that isn't streetwear but isn't bound by the rules, formality or costume of a bygone era. Lets have an area that is more progressive, stylish and cool.

And you would call such area?
