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

    afaik, the fee is the standard 4% pp fee. i think the only way they know if you made the transaction elsewhere is if you clicked "purchase" there but didn't pay on grailed via pp. they strong encourage paying through grailed page with pp. i wouldnt be surprised if theyre reading PMs tho.

    The email says that the system flagged me, I have no idea how. I have the email but probably better not to put the site on full blast -- seems like its getting its fair share of criticism already.

    But that sale summary is actually helpful.

    SF B&S is really easy to use. I don't get it... it's way easier to sort than it ever was before. It's not that complicated.

    Size filter doesn't really work for SW&D.

    Sure it does. Grailed is mostly SW&D and the size filter works wonders.

    I just wish there were a way to hide certain listings that I have no interest in ever looking at. There are some that have been getting bumped for coming up on 2 years, and it's not even close to my size. It doesn't serve anyone to have that in front of my eyes.

    Sizing in SW&D is more widely varied than it is in CM... do you wear the same size in every brand you wear? I wear 3 different sizes in Schneider tops alone...

    SuFu's marketplace is wayyyy less user friendly. It gets cross shopped sort of like the way SZ does: because they offer more of things that aren't as common here. SuFu has way more obscure runway shit and archived designer stuff. SZ has its artisanal/drapey whatevers.

    Arguing content and or prices is a different issue. I tried to get into Grailed and saw people selling used Chuck Taylors and thought "wtf this site is called 'grailed' and there's people selling things worth maybe $10."

    well, having the ability to filter your range of size is better than nothing. I set xs-s, 29-31, 9.5-10.5 as my filter on grailed for example.

    Would require people to bother to correctly enter sizing into ad creation. Much like category type and tags... reminds me of my job where hardly anyone uses the damned database properly. Not sure if forum structure can easily handle all that, but I'm down. Styleforum's B&S used to be a clusterfuck of ad titles that didn't match their content and 234234234234 mismatched items in one post (See: SuFu). You'd also get tons of phantom ads where the items were sold. It's already a lot more user friendly. Some "powersellers" may argue that it's more work for them, but if you're a powerseller, it makes sense to spend a few moments creating useful ads. A lot of CM powersellers haven't had any issues, YMMV. Some forums I frequent require sold prices to be left in the ad to set a market price - not sure how people here would feel about that.

    The only thing I would suggest is a measuring guide for sellers. I've had something turn out 2" wider p2p because the seller either didn't lay it flat or just didn't know how to read numbers.

    you can hide in Grailed, right under the pic
    I just sent them an email and asked them and they said they don't have any fees. They make their money off the Direct selling page.


    banning them seems a bit drastic, unless they're still DMing members. They have some solid stuff on there and usually when I sell, items get as much attention on there as SF.

    I should have been clearer: I meant in SF B/S/T, but thanks.

    Grailed has been good. Some douche stole photos of my item that I sold a while back, I PM him and ask him to take them down, he replies back with snarky bullshit, I ask grailed to take his ad down, and after some back and forth they oblige and take the ad down. Good stuff. Who knows if the seller was even in possession of the item, or if he just straight up stole the photos from me to make a quick buck.

    Just the fact that you can scroll through photos on grailed makes it better than here. That's the huge difference IMO. Here it takes 10 minutes to look at the same amount of items that would take one minute on ebay or grailed, etc. because you have to click on every thread here to see the photos.

    There's no real feedback on grailed. Auto +1 when you buy or sell. There's a scammer on there and his feedback is still high and he has items listed.

    Yup. If StyFo's classifieds switched to a 'gallery' format, forced sellers to plug basic item info into a database, and allowed us to browse by categories like designer, size, or even color, I'd have much less of a reason to use Grailed. But at the moment, as much as I hate to say it, Grailed's user experience blows StyFo's out of the water
