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,

    I am back like cooked crack baby! After going on a bender updating my spring-wardrobe with new dress shirts, shoes, trousers, sweaters, raincoats, sportcoats, and t-shirts - I am ready to check into rehab again. :D

    Fuck, I'm weak. Couldn't pass up a pair of Marcoliani cashmere socks on eBay for $13.50.

    You should be okay - you outbid me on those socks at 8:01PM PDT. So it was still 3/31, assuming you're in a US time zone. [​IMG]

    But, if you're feeling guilty, we can call it a proxy purchase for me and that definitely shouldn't count against you... [​IMG]

    Well what have we here... A vendor, who's every signature'd post is an advertisement for his business, coming into my beloved NO Purchase Club,
    crapping and blaming a handful of people who want to give their wallets a break, as being somehow responsible for a bad economy.

    That's like having a liquor store representitive come to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting telling the group that rehab is for quitters.

    Well thank you very much for your concern. May I be in charge of my thread now?

    LOCKDOWN.....................
    Allllright ladies, welcome to Boot Camp,
    and here are the rules...​

    1) No Spending on clothes or any clothing-related items for yourselves for a month.
    You may window shop and surf the net, you may salivate, but you will not spend.
    2) Those of you who signed up before deadline can allow yourselves $100 for emergencies only.Spend it as you see fit and we don't need to hear about it.
    3) You will perform maintenance as needed during the month, be it polishing shoes or whatever.
    'Before and After' photos are welcomed and encouraged.
    4) Anyone who falls or fails must report the spending amount and article purchased.
    5) Even if you fall, you must complete the month, so that means try harder.
    6) Anyone who fails will submit to a punishment of my choosing and you WILL do it.

    As you are all here of your own free will, I commend your strength to come this far.
    I encourage each and every one of you to try to save some money during this month.
    The first step to inner strength is to stop putting temptation in front of your eyes,
    so may I further encourage you all to get to work cleaning and putting away winter things,
    getting out the spring items and prepare your wardrobe rotations.

    By the time this is over, you people will be born again wealthier and ready to dress for warmer weather.
    I will motivate you. You, in turn will motivate one another.

    Here is the list of our platoon members:
    • Man Of Lint
    • Digmenow
    • Claghorn
    • Da GOAT
    • flirtkakat
    • Hacking jacket
    • Gwarg
    • Caustic Man
    • bearsfan172
    • ChetBakerSings

    • david3558
    • matty long legs
    • PMac
    • Mr Martini
    • elite123
    • domenickb
    • FidelCashflow

    I wish each of you success. That is all for now and best of luck.
    Non-members playing the home game, good luck as well.
    We'll take late sign-ups until midnight tonight but the late ones get no emergency fund.

    I have some pre-written punishments here. Choose a number from 1 to 6.

    I actually won the auction yesterday, but paid today. Beyond that, I'm officially out. I need a new blazer for some upcoming work conferences in early May and June. The only navy blazer I have now is a wool/cashmere blend and that won't work in San Francisco and Atlanta. I thought I could put off the purchase until the first of May, but that won't give me enough time to get it tailored.

    Good luck to everyone.

    Damn that was quick. To be fair however I myself am always tempted to go buy more shoes, something that surely won't go away during April "just because."

    Alright, if you say so. But you will be on the Wall Of Shame this month. Better luck next time.
    Since you are in need of tailoring, may I recommend our affiliate vendor David Reeves. Tell him I sent you.

    Hey MoL I am in!

    Haven't spent a penny on clothes in April. May need an emergency fund but expect to be successful in NPL for April.

    Welcome aboard Ianiceman. Once the rules are set, they can't be broken. I don't want to be the bad guy here so tell you what..
    get 3 other NPC members to 'Thumbs Up' your post and I'll allow you the emergency fund.
