1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Click on Edit Thread at the top and add a poll. Don't forget to make it multiple choice (if that's what you want) and put the right end date in as well.

    On the contrary, I'm feeling kind of vindicated.

    Self congratulatory is the term I would have used.

    Well now you're just bein' mean.

    Let me try again to make my point without tripping over my own snark, and keeping in mind that English is not my first language: I think this shows that there's a causative link between the core concept and specific requirements for a challenge and the quantity and quality of the resulting entry pool.

    Also, lest we all start throwing stones, I mean...

    True, it was a bit mean. It wasn't unjustified in my opinion, however. Whatever the case I appreciate your clarification.

    No harm no foul. You aren't wrong. I can take the lumps when I deserve 'em, which is most of the time.

    Any chance the poll finishes earlier? We could get back on track with weekly FCs :)

    People need to get over using the term "train wreck". There has never been anything posted in any of the various online Men's Clothing groups that looks even remotely like a train wreck.

    A train wreck looks something like this:

    Full disclosure....although I was working for a railroad at the time this happened, I was not working for either of the railroads involved (the Burlington and the Rock Island) in this train wreck when it happened.
