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'll keep it simple:

    >Wear checks (SC or Suit). However, the more checks the more you will catch attention and tastefully win, or be bashed in good SF manner!
    >Submissions must be entered by Sunday midnight
    >Polls will be open on Monday until midnight

    Last summer's check-challenge-winner followed by some other examples:

    Since it seems I'm an exemple (first time for me, thanks you), I'm in.

    Looks like it was a cold day this summer, or a hot winter day on Monday since I was wearing the same jacket.

    And I'll also try to be in

    Well done Cleav! I had to pass on using that jacket today. I normally use mine with charcoal trousers and a blue or grey cashmere tie. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Did you say check mate?

    Kamakura
    Attolini cashmere tie

    Impressive entrances.

    @Tom Miler my sketch was a joke, but it seems you succeeded in making it real. Amazing

    Well, I was wearing a PoW SC today, I guess it qualify?

    Thrilled and honoured to be chosen as one of the exemplars for this comp. I will certainly enter if I can get a decent photo of what I'm wearing. (A summery gunclub check.)

    Note that there is a "bonus check" not fully visible, since the ps has a large checked pattern.
