1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    An emphatic NO on my part.

    I have never looked in the streetwear sub-forum, and I have no desire to have to wade through posts about trainers to read the threads about Lobb.

    If we are to have a footwear sub-forum, lets have separate ones for the Clothing and Streetwear gangs.

    I really do not want to have to move to AAAC, or even worse, the bloody Londonlounge.

    Imagine an Alden Indy boot stamping on a human face, forever.

    Way too confusing. There are, imho, too many forums as is (General and Current Events seem to cover a lot of stuff, for example).

    I agree that we do not need a seperate shoe forum and I like the fact that everyone checks out this one place so whoever might have an opinion will chime in.

    However, I think keeping General and Current Events seperate is a good idea because General often has intelligent and interesting conversations - while 90% of what appears on Current Events is shite.

    Is this a reference to the Trinity?

    I think it would make it harder to browse Style Forum since everyone who's interested in nice leather shoes is generally interested in suits, shirts, ties, etc. anyway. If you make a subforum, then you have to browse an extra forum for the same information.

    You can just sticky one thread which links to the best of shoe porn, or appoint a moderator to add photos to a locked shoe porn thread. It must open with the Corben, of course.

    I respect all opinions here, but I have made an interesting observation in that the majority don't want to see a shoe sub-forum solely based on the fact that they'd have yet another sub-forum to navigate. Might I ask the question that has been burning on my brain from the reading through everony'es reply in this thread: how lazy have we become that we vote no simply based on the fact that we can't take a second to click a different link? When this occurs, you must surely ask yourself whether or not the forum is actually worth your time if you can't take the extra few seconds to click a link and scan the posts for ones you are interested in. Sub-fora exist for a purpose; they help organize the discussions, and since when did organization hurt anything?

    Why create unnecessary hurdles to access the discussions? The issue isn't whether people are too lazy to go to another forum, but rather whether or not the currrent level of organization is adequate. It seems to me that it is. It doesn't matter anyway. It's j's playhouse. He decides at his own personal whim.

    Actually, forget that: j, I demand a thrift forum! [​IMG]

    I don't see them as hurdles. Again, this shows laziness. It is the issue, as the majority of posts in this thread allude to the fact that they don't want to click into a sub-forum. To me that espouses laziness. But I regress.

    Or it could simply be overly complicated rather than simply elegant.

    Should we have separate fora for shoe threads referencing bluchers and another for bals? Perhaps separate fora for suits, one for sportcoats (with a sub-fora on blazers) and another for shirts (sub-divided into dress and casual). Otherwise it's just lazy. [​IMG]

    Perhaps a Flip-Flop Forum... if for no reason other than the alliteration. [​IMG]

    Is this a reference to the Trinity?

    'You asked me once,' said O'Brien, 'what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.'

    'The worst thing in the world,' said O'Brien, 'varies from individual to individual. It may be burial alive, or death by fire, or by drowning, or by impalement, or fifty other deaths. There are cases where it is some quite trivial thing, not even fatal.'

    Would that be a politician only forum?

    One of the best things that happened in SF was the creation of the streetwear sub-forum to separate the riff raff from the clothing forum and I am not looking forward to the prospect of combining the 2 groups in the new sub-forum for shoe. It's definitely a drab for me to comb thru all the sneaker posts to find EG, JL or Vass posts. [​IMG]

    I have no idea what [​IMG] means, since everybody is doing it I may as well join the bandwagon. [​IMG]

    I just created a poll for this subject. Again [​IMG]

    Perhaps subfora for only slippery slope and red herring arguments?
