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

    your mother's name is ee-vet-ah. please don't say 'uh'. and ya-vet-uh is not less correct, it's completely incorrect.
    Yes, -ah is how it's pronounced, but since it's not the stressed syllable, -uh was close enough in type for me to get the meaning across. Sorry, I didn't use the correct pronunciation key. I was pointing out the long e sound as the issue. You're the best.

    And actually if I pronounce my mother's name incorrectly, I'm not concerned. Maybe it's a sign of my contempt for her (but, alas that's a thread that belongs elsewhere).

    Gavin, Ian, Colin, and all those other "OH HAI BROZ MY DADZ THE SOCCER COACH" names. Fuck you.

    Oh, and I despise those English names that are of indeterminate gender.

    Not to mention ridiculous spelling variants, the provenance of which I presume are illiterate parents.
