    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.

    Rule changes:

    - All LS purchases allowed (Spoo, I got a PM from a supporter of yours with only this link included: )
    - Bonus for extra items dropped from two votes to one for the sake of parity

    Also, thoughts on:

    - running this an extra week (since this is still the tail end of the holidays and we might not get as many fits as the SF Family deserves)
    - allowing an extra submission from people should they choose to do so

    It's a big boost for those of us capable of putting together fits with 5-6 and even 7 items, but really puts at a disadvantage those who've got 2 or 3. In the end, the contest should be won mostly through excellent fits and not through koppage.

    Jury is still out on the socks. And the underwear.

    Thoughts on extending the contest and allowing multiple entries?

    I hear that, but I want 2 each.

    The socks better damn count.

    Yes to extending.

    Not loving the multiple entry option.

    Too late, but I would have required that pants, SC or suit have to be from an AV as item #1 and item #2 or more can be anything else.

    Also, how would multiple entries work?

    People can submit 2 entires and each entry has a slot in the ballot, or each poster may post 1 or 2 fits and gets one slot and voters vote on the totality of their fits? Either way I don't see that as an improvement over 1 fit per entrant.

    Socks (not saying they count ^_^), shoes, pants, belt, jacket, tie, pocket square, hat, scarf, and overcoat. I could do 7, but I'm not sure it would look good.
