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,

    Am I the only one who feels that this is a total shit show? I don't mean to be insulting but holy crap, this rollout is almost as bad as the obamacare website roll out - I suppose the different being the money spent into it & time. But either way, its not good.

    Wow, sorry to hear that Razl, it was a great feature and you really enhanced Styleforum with your extremely well curated posts!

    This rollout is a "new Coke" style clusterfuck; when are people going to learn that if it ain't broke don't fix it?

    I agree wholeheartedly! If it doesn't get better I'm not going to waste my time with it.

    lol. The other option was to let the forum just go away. The platform we were on will no longer be available in a couple of months, period.

    Hi Razl,

    If you can start a PM conversation with me, I'd like to explore with you alternative ways of doing things. I really do like this feature.

    Sorry about that. Have you filled out all of the fields? That seems to have been the main issue. If all fields have an entry, that seems to solve most of the issues we've seen.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    being a developer at certain point of my life, I sympathize the situation these guys are in, it's not like we pay to this website for them to have some professional in house development team..., I imagine everything is out the box and try to squeeze to their requirements

    And as a buyer (usually not a seller, not enough liquidity) I have to say the new format does look better. Not as smooth as Grailed (and to be fair the whole purpose of that website was to be just B&S as suppose to SF which is jack of all trade), but way better than the old ones.
