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'm bored, alone in my hotel room, and wasting time on Style Forum.


    I thought I would propose a contest.

    The rules:

    Forum members with at least 1500 post counts pm me a photo of them that is at least 20 years old.

    When I get at least 10 entrants, I post the photos, along with a list of forum names of the people who submitted photos.

    People then get to match names and photos.

    The person with the most matches will be declared the winner of the contest and will receive the admiration and adulation of the forum.

    (edit) Maybe the 20 year old photo rule doesn't work, particularly for some of the younger folks. Just send an old photo of you when you were young, and let me know approximately how old the photo is. I will post the age of the photo along with the photo. This will provide a clue as to who is who.
