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.

    My entry, as of now. Reserve the right to edit this post and substitute tomorrow's fit should it qualify. Go big or go home; I regret nothing. EDIT: OFFICIAL ENTRY BELOW

    Surprised to see so few light grey SCs so far, I would have expected the majority to go that route. This contest looks like it could be a good inspiration source for future fits......

    Blue Shirt, despite the picture making it look purple. Tie is in fact Purple. I may keep this as my entry, we'll see. Here's todays:

    Knowing what we know about SF groupthink, it should have been expected that gray SCs are being left behind.

    :foo:

    :p

    Funny. That's what my top half was supposed to be, but I'd left it at the office, so it wasn't available to me while dressing/doing pics.

    Ah, come on we all have that light grey SC in the back of our closets that we pretend we don't own.....

    Here's my shot at it. Although I don't want the burdens that come with "winning" this competition, I don't think there's much risk of that. Crappy cell phone pictures below...

    :laugh:

    i sold mine off, but i do have a gray SC with brown windowpane.

    question, as its freezing cold here, the likelihood of my wife going outside for a photo shoot is slim to none. if i redo a fit from earlier, may i submit the old pics?

    Sure, it's on your scout's honour that you actually wear the same outfit tomorrow.


    Otherwise you can probably come up with a way to make it up to you wife...and keep her warm at he same time. You're a grown up, you can probably figure something out..... :smarmy:
