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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I will admit that his dreams were at times far fetched but you have to admit, he did try to keep us thinking of the possibilities. We all want to be somebody, to emulate a hero, replicate a look, assimilate with a crowd or just be that someone for a moment.
    I know that the purpose of the forum is to be able to pursue ideas, express opinions and find reasons to stay here. There were some uncharitable things directed his way and it would nice to see us welcome him back.
    For as I said before, If you don't have dreams, you'll only have nightmares!

    Then we can be sure that you will meet up with him and show him the sites that he has dreamed about. Make sure Annette, Frankie and the gang join you as well.

    He really reminded me of a kind of a California Dreamin' Vaclav.

    Some thought he was a troll, but I think his posts were in Ernest. I mean, earnest.

    I think he has been in the Middle East, negotiating the cease fire. You know, give peace a chance and all that.

    He was either a very idealistic 13-yr-old or a troll. If the former, I hope he learned something and will return. If the latter, not so much.

    Maybe he gave his house to stop the violence?

    Stop me if you heard this one:

    How many Trads does it take to change a light bulb?

    None, because they use candles!

    I think if your looking for the first billing, most would say, you better come up with a better one than that.

    Nah...I was just screwing around. Plus, it's really not funny, what's funny about it is how not funny it is.

    What's funny, is that you knew it wasn't funny but you posted it anyway.

    Dude, it's a purposely a retarded joke, but the funny part of it is in both the inside joke (really, how many people do you meet that know what Trad is and the whole back story?) and the fact that the Trads are pretty dumb, just like the joke. Think of the Aristocrats, but not.

    Get it?
