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 that you're right because I set a pretty low bar.

    Whodini's post on coffee, nominated by 1969: http://www.styleforum.net/t/306244/...central-america-with-photos/0_50#post_5561516

    Technically, from SW&D, but just shows that good non-clothing related threads are fair game as well. This was perfect for the mix.

    I'd love to see posts from MC, actually. There is a ton of stuff here, from the factory tours to pictorials of the bespoke process, (tailoring and footwear) that would be great material. Not sure why people have not nominated any of those.

    Is it OK to nominate threads from AAAC?

    I think I don't get how this works. People nominate posts/threads (thanks, SVB), and then what?

    You get e-props, and one post a week will be selected to be linked from the home page.

    But does it involve a poll or something? Sorry if I missed things.

    There will be a poll every month or so for a small prize, and then, a the end of the year, for post of the year, and then we'll send that person on some magical goose chase to get a pair of MTO shoes or dinner with Manton and Itsstillmatt or something.

    Conne threads are funny, but really, only funny for people who have been reading this forum forever. There's really nothing more to be said about Pink Attolini ties, though I'm sure you guys will make hay of this for at least 5 more years.

    I've giving you until this afternoon to think of something more... apropos. Actually, if Spoo can get, say, 100 (non stupid) posts on his affiliate thread in the next few hours, that I could even highlight that, sort of to boost Spoo, sort of to say "If you do good things for the community, the community will be good to you."
