1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Florian, What part of PQ are you in? I lived up there for a couple of years back in the late nineties. I would attempt to rap with you guys in Quebcois but my abilities in the French language are long gone.

    I'm illiterate in 4 languages.

    Southern English is my native language, Italian I was fluent but now rusty. Can read and follow convo's in French and Spanish. At one time, my survival french was pretty good, but 20 years later, not so much.

    To be fair, that is 1/3 of the national languages on the continent. Not sure many Europeans could say the same.

    Buyer wants to return a suit (size didn't fit, even though I gave all measurements) because it didn't look like the pictures in my ad. The jacket was pinned, which he says is the main reason he wants to return...he basically thought it was going to be slimmer around the waist.

    What would you do? It was a sale done on craigslist, he wired the money to me via bank...

    (Practically every big seller seems to pin the jackets on Ebay, didn't know it was a reason for return?)

    Every seller of clothing except street vendors pin clothing.

    You should tell him about tailoring.

    Well, In my ad I stated that I would not take any returns, unless the item was damaged or not as described.

    I then gave him detailed measurements, which he said looked good. Also informed him that one usually has to get some work done, before the fit is good.

    Now two weeks later I get a mail stating that it didn't fit AND that it didn't look like pictured, and pointed out that it had to have been pinned on the pictures. So he's using the later as a reason for return, even though it's obvious it's because it didn't fit like he wanted it to. For all I know he's used it for some event, and figured he could just return it afterwards.
