    We are applying for a $250K small business grant to increase the visibility of Styleforum.

    We will be throwing more parties all over the world, (which will need hosts, ahem... guys?) and otherwise engaging the community and the larger fashion community that sustains us. And ultimately, if we really make it, we will build out a big Styleforum pad, and then another, and then another... Not even kidding. We want to have a global reach, both online and off, and all of our members will benefit. We haven't forgotten our members from 2002, and we certainly won't forget our 2012 cohort.

    We need 250 votes by June 30 to become eligible. Please go to www.missionsmallbusiness.com, search for "Styleforum", and vote for us.

    Thanks all.

    Fok.

    More than that, for something really good. Anyway, you will be seeing version 1 in the near future. It will allow most of the important forum features, and is really focused on usability.

    Only 76 votes so far. That's paltry. Get on this, people!

    Also, no need to fear the Facebook login. Votes look pretty anonymous.

    I voted. And yeah the facebook requirements for that app is way low, good call. I hate it when they want access to all my information, never use them.

    The Facebook log in is probably the easiest way for them to prevent spam and multiple voting. Many people have multiple email addresses but few have multiple Facebook accounts.

    Thanks for all the votes so far, guys. It's been one evening and most of this morning, and we are up to 103 already. Let's see if we can't make it up to 250 by the end of the weekend, and keep going from there. Let the money people know that we like our community.

    Incidentally, we've already brought Leathersoul over the 250 mark, and there are other community members going out for this thing. Let's bring everyone to that next level of competition.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
