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.

    An interesting theory, #1. My theory is that your jacket doesn't fit.

    Wait, what do you mean?

    No - I'm only jealous of you of course. Who isn't?

    Expertly drôle...it was a good decision to avoid the exclamation point.

    The changes are mostly impossible so it is, by definition, a joke.

    Who is this?

    A man with an ill-fitting jacket, which has been digitally rectified by the thread god.

    It's true, you may not be able to make many of the changes. But this process is intended to be instructive with respect to the general matter of fit, and future purchases. Maybe next time, you and others will know to avoid a jacket that requires impossible modifications.

    Still, you probably could fix it a bit, if it's really worth the time and money to you. I bet a good alterations tailor could let out the chest some, let out the hem to make the jacket a tad longer, and move the pockets. As far as the pockets go, it would be ideal if you could move them down and in, but the pattern-matching will be all off. I disagree with Manton that moving them inward should be the priority--downward is more crucial, particularly if you have the hem let out.

    Perhaps I'll do this. Or maybe not. I kind of like how it fits.

    Thank you - your approval matters to me. I left the exclamation mark out as I did not want to confuse your right ventromedial prefrontal cortex.

    Now let's get back to the thread topic - what awesome things has Vox done today?

    Is no one here brave enough to be Foofed? Do I have to start looking for involuntary volunteers?
