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.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    I think the hardest part will be thinking up ridiculous and confusing phrases brits use. Many times when I read british news stories, I don't have a clue what they're talking about.

    I, a French citizen, have often "translated" British English for my American friends. [​IMG]

    They also have a tendency to say "right?" after each point in a sentence. I'm not sure if they're ending the thought by saying that or if they're looking for actual affirmation.
