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,

    It's not mine, Serg'nt. Just a photo I found somewhere else on SF so I have no qualitative intel to offer. Looks warm, though.

    Thank you Footsome.

    Alright....heads up.....this is the home stretch. Tuesday April 30 at 23:59:59 (1 second before midnight) is our deadline.
    On Wednesday May 01, everyone needs to report in for one last call and update.

    Those of you who f**k up over this weekend will still be required to submit to punishment, for one week beyond the challenge period.
    Anyone who does not report in with their final update, will be deemed lost and presumed dead.
    A day or two after this ends, I will post a final results list; something I failed to do on past clubs. Once this list is posted we'll consider the matter closed. I wish each of you strength over the weekend. Carry on. Good luck to each of ya.

    I think we got someone wavering down the home stretch.

    Also, Dig, check out the new rules for the May NPC.

    Failed! Got paid, bought some pieces. Sold a guitar so at least I'm even money now. Will join NPC next month, once May over then I'm looking to get a suit or 2.

    We're running an experiment in May; you'll actually be encouraged to make the purchase at the end of May provided you've demonstrated forethought towards the purchase throughout the month as well as restraint.

    Not to worry. I won't be able to bring home the bacon on those loafers. Spoo always seems to get top dollar.

    Unfortunately, I have too much cleaning and alterations to be done this month to be able to re-up for May.

    I want each and every one of you to sound off. What happened over the weekend and for all those playing possum, I want to know how have you gotten through this month.
    Anyone who does not report in by Wednesday night, will remain maggots.
    If anyone has spent money and not reported it, please do so a.s.a.p.


    I have breezed through this month effortlessly. Have not spent one dime.
    I lotioned and/or polished all footwear ordnance and provided leather care to all my partners gear as well.
    Now I need everyone to update here so I can administer any last punishment and also tabulate a list of all outcomes.

    For those of you who are not SF members but are playing the home game, There will be a special punishment for those of you who messed up.
    This will be perfomed honourably over the next week and will be disclosed on Wednesday.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Had to use the emergency fund, but not all of it. I actually sewed buttons on 3 shirts too. I feel so accomplished! lol

    Still holding up here. Penance for my slip-up earlier in the month has been paid.

    This is a dodgy statement...
    'Had to use Emergency fund' is not the same as 'I had an emergency'.

    Drop and give me a dozen Eye-Brow Lifts.
    Clarify if the spending was in fact an emergency or not.
    If it was not....'fess up, and you know what's coming

    Fair point! I used it to make some alterations to a blazer. I'm in the process of an international move and it's the only blazer I have with me, and it didn't fit! That's an emergency to me. What's the verdict?

    This gets a pass. You're fine. Thank you for clarifying and I hope your move goes well.

    Oh man, I don't know if I can do next month. I will be back in the U.S. and have access to a Brooks Brothers again. I'm thinking more than a few purchases will come from it.

    All good here. Some temptation, it's fine though.

    Might take advantage of the brief hiatus before rejoining for the May NPC. Nothing I really need or crave.
