1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    All who sign up Monday April 01, 2013 are allowed no emergency fund.
    There will be no late sign-ups accepted after Monday April 01.
    You have plenty of time to prepare and-or spend to your hearts content beforehand.

    No Coupons. No spending on any clothing-related item(s) for yourself for this period of time.

    This is the first official NPC club for 2013​

    Can you do it?

    Once again, I would like to invite the weak, the helpless and hopeless to gain strength from joining this club. Also, I would like to encourage all non SF members to take a minute and join our beloved forum and participate.

    I for one, am IN. Who else dares to take the challenge??
    ARRRRGGGGHHHHhhh.....

    What if I am buying clothing for others? I have a small number of people who are trying to find employment and I locate job and interview appropriate clothing that I donate to their efforts.

    Sounds alot of fun. No chance of qualifying: I've new shirts under-construction, suits and pants under reconstruction, shoes under repair and more shirts subject to major alterations. Four different tailors/ cobblers can't suddenly 'down-tools'.

    However, I really need to learn how a needle and thread works, fascinating technology.

    Due to an upcoming, and undoubtedly expensive, move to another continent, I may have no choice but to participate. I'm in!

    Perfect time for me to do this, I'm in. If I'm not careful, I am on my way to becoming Buzz Bissinger minus the riches, leather fetish, obsession with Gucci, and sex with other men. God, that was a disturbing article the robot posted.

    I am in. I put a deposit on some MTO boots today and have a few MTM shirts in the works, but they should not be ready until May.
