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.

    PS -- if anyone from whom I pasted content, especially AHarris, objects to it being posted on a wiki, feel free to remove it. If I weren't just posting content as an example, I'd make more of an effort to credit the original authors.

    Let's sticky this. If it really takes off we can even add a button to the navigation menu.

    Judging by the number of edits by people other than me (zero), the whole collaborative concept of wikis is not well understood here. I think it's best used as an extensive FAQ or reference, but it's only as people make it.

    A Kabbaz' shirt making and care articles might be appropriate, but I don't know how much leeway he gives for re posting.

    I've added section headings to the shoe page to make it easier to read.

    Is it possible to create sub-pages, e.g. Shoes/Styles?

    Please be sure to post credits to the author of any info you take from the forum (very important) and preferably a link to any forum discussion on the subject (would be nice).

    Also, text shouldn't be copied from the forum without explicit permission from the original author.

    Thanks. The stuff I pasted over there needs to be cleaned up.

    Yes, the "New Page" button will allow you to create a new page. Check out the following page for some tips on editing wikis:

    Kent, could you edit your OP to include the URL and current edit password?

    I'm pretty familiar with editing wikis, but I haven't used this particular software before. I tried to create a sub page with a / character but didn't really seem to succeed [​IMG]

    Anyway, I copied and wiki-reformatted von Rothbart's list of shoe makers and put it on a temporary page here: http://styleforum.pbwiki.com/ShoeMakers I've also sent a PM to von Rothbart asking for permission to put it there.
