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.

    I would love to as well, but I'm wearing seersucker this weekend. Nothing subtle about that. Don't be afraid to let it go for another couple days to get more people, though.

    You have my vote if you integrate a David Lynch reference into an outfit.

    I was not thinking of entering this time, but looking back over the last two weeks I found this outfit that I posted on WAYWRN and which is perhaps oddish. I am combining two paisley patterns, hopefully in a subtle way - the John Comfort tie has a neat, small pattern and the Etro square a very much bolder one. I offer them here with some different / edited pics:

    Although I liked Clags' outfit most, Bienluienapris' doily hank was really the only subtly odd note for me.

    1...2...3 NOT IT!

    SYCSYC, ball is in your court. Though I think it might be nice to have a bit of a break until fall weather begins to appear.

    Post a new thread. You worry about the poll later (*Edit Thread*---> *Add Poll*). Now just start a new thread with the specifics of the challenge: theme, rules, and examples.
