    Contest time. It’s been a while since we did these regularly, officially, and I thought that it’s a good time to start.

    We are going to be making some radical changes to the blog format in the future, having the blog be fully integrated with the forum. The purpose will be to house our editorial content and highlight the best of the forum at the same time, and allow readers to interact with the system in the way they feel most comfortable.

    The first step will be to find, on a consistent basis, the best posts on the forum.

    Every week, I’m going to start a new “nominations” thread, and you can add up more nominations during the week. A “thread or post of the day” will be chosen and featured on the Front Page, every day, or perhaps more or less frequently, depending on the excellence or terribleness of the nominations. J and I will be the final judges, but we may bring in guest judges occasionally, and sometimes, even do things democratically (but not often).

    Everything on the site except for Buying and Selling ads, NSFW, Dumb Threads, and Current Events threads and posts, are fair game. Ideally, all the posts will be no more than a week old, but I'll consider things up to a month old if they are really, really, good. There will be a nominations thread in the MC and SW&D forum, but they will not be considered separately. The MC thread is here.

    Every month, we’ll put up the posts of the day for a post of the month poal, and we’ll put up a prize for both the winner and the person who nominated the winner, so nominate away. Of course, if you consistently nominate moronic stuff, you may, and will be, subject to the natural consequences, like having your account put in the trust of Connemara for 24 hours.
    At the end of the year, we’ll do a post of the year, and there will be a grand prize to determine which member is the big winner. I haven’t figured out what will be the grand prize, yet, but it will be cool. Maybe a pair of MTO shoes, or 3 belts (i.e. the number I usually buy per season), or maybe an all tweed outfit, or, if the winner is a Streetwear and Denim person, an entire J.Crew wardrobe (for jet), or maybe an outfit that makes you look like the littlest goth hobo.

    Let’s start. Who wants to go first? These will be posts for next week. Nominate away.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Am I the only one reading this thread? I think part of the problem here is that 90% of SWD only read subscribed threads at this point...

    I subscribe to several threads, but I wander around quite a bit too. I guess that I just don't have the same sense of civic duty that would motivate me to recommend "top posts." Also, it feels like if there is any particularly good post in SW&D worth a recommendation, it's either one of the insanely good fits that pops up every now and then, or it happens to be the much rarer, much more discursive posts such as Synth's latest in the Contentedness Thread.

    Yes, I almost never leave the subscriptions page :(

    And there have been some gems, lately, too!

    this probably won't get selected just because the post is so old, but this is probably one of my favorite posts i've read on here re: leather jackets

    I feel like Sipang is underrated. Consistently good threads and pictures, pretty much kept SW&D from devolving into one big Jcrew thread in the post-softy era
