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.

    Just an FYI. On case anyone was still wondering:

    I emailed George over at OSB regarding the official affiliate thread, and here is his reply:

    quote:

    "A big part of the reason why we became officiates was so that we could both support the forum, but most importantly, be able to directly answer questions and speak directly with folks who are interested in/fans of Oak Street Bootmakers. Over the past couple of years however, you surely noticed that we had only posted a handful of times. As a small shop, we quite simply don’t have the bandwidth/personnel to keep up with the thread. When we stopped being an affiliate last month, SF kept the thread active for around 30 days, but per their policy, they deleted it."

    "You’ll notice that even before our ‘official affiliate thread’ there was an Oak Street thread - that thread is still up and will continue to be a place to post about Oak Street Bootmakers. Just as other footwear brands have threads (Alden, Red Wing, Rancourt, etc) - none are affiliates, but all have a thread on SF."

    Must be a canned response. I actually emailed, too and received the same thing. I don't think George sent mine, though.

    If you're interested in the OSB Trench Boot for quality, look elsewhere. OSB is a brand that tries to maximize the amount of the leather they can use, rather than optimizing for quality. This leads to tons of loose-grain creasing and other issues. See here: http://imgur.com/a/ovKrt

    By the way, didn't PW Minor just announce that they were closing up shop. Who's making the Trench Boots? Did OSB buy out the factory? Is PW Minor still making boots for other companies, just closing up their own line?
