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.

    Pattern Frenzy Friday!
    The core challenge is to be able to incorporate those patterns into a whole outfit that pleases the eye, without tipping over into a Hieronymus Bosch-esque level of fantastical insanity.


    Wear whatever you like, but no solids allowed (shoes and other leather accessories are excepted). Your shirt, suit, tie, square, socks and so on must all have a pattern with at least two colours. They can be as muted/small or as loud/flashy as you like but they must all have a multi-coloured pattern. Texture/weave doesn't count, there need to be some different colours within fabric. So a black/white herringbone jacket counts as pattern even though it seems solid grey from a distance... but a plain grey herringbone would be a solid and therefore not allowed. A solid donegal doesn't count, but a multi-coloured donegal that appeared solid from a distance would be permitted. You get the idea.

    The aim is, of course, to create the best looking outfit within those parameters. [​IMG]

    Mmmm, That's a more difficult question than first appears. Patterns by definition repeat in a predictable manner. However, I feel it's used more loosely sometimes. I would consider a birds-eye a pattern, even though from a distance it may look solid. However, I would consider a pick & pick (Sharkskin) a solid even though it does look on closer inspection it looks like it has a repeating pattern. Good question and I'm not sure I've answered it.

    I was about to say, there is not absolute parity in the selected shots, since some selections are collages which contain closeups, and other individual shots are in fact closeups. In order to make an apples to apples comparison, the selected photos should be similar in nature. MBreinin's initial entry is a case in point. Bleachboy, Spoo, and even PG's submission are other examples where the patterns/textures are not as up front as they could be for apt assessment. Nyr I would exclude in this case, since his shots were requoted enough to burn an indelible impression in one's brain [​IMG] (He was one of my picks, btw...)

    Spoo, why did you go back to T-Ball rules, where you pick more than one winner?

    "Best" One that surpasses all others.

    A possible (perhaps partial) solution would be to quote a picture in stead of just put the picture in the challenge thread. Then you could click the icon [​IMG] in the quote title to see the entire post in the WAYWRN thread.

    Like this:

    (Not the best example, because this one already consists of two pictures, but I hope it's still understandable.)

    ...Bleachboy, Spoo, and even PG's submission are other examples where the patterns/textures are not as up front as they could be for apt assessment.

    A lot of us posted closeups in multiple images, but Spoo just uses the "full body" shot for purposes of brevity...

    Ah. I thought it was understood that entries are open from 12am - 11:59pm EST... Sorry man!

    This is true - I try to pick the best picture out of however many that person poasted for the entry, to kind of "sum up" their fit. Only reason is because I dont want the OP to run miles long. For instance, if I requoted Robs whole post, that was 16 pics or so deep. But if you guys want, I can add a few more shots for each going forward.

    Spoo, why did you go back to T-Ball rules, where you pick more than one winner?

    "Best" One that surpasses all others.


    I heard so much "this was great but..." I did multiple voting. Sometimes theres more than one person you want to vote for.. But in the end the highest number of votes wins, so thats it right there.

    A lot of us posted closeups in multiple images, but Spoo just uses the "full body" shot for purposes of brevity...

    Like I said up there - just to keep the OP clean - but if you guys want more shots, Ill do it.

    Don't worry. We've hired protection and told them to charge it to your account. Interestingly, they knew exactly who "voxsartoria" was.
