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.

    This sort of high-cut waistcoat is completely unacceptable with a tuxedo. People wear them all the time at proms and the like, but it is a most egregious error. The only type of waistcoat that should be worn with a tuxedo is a proper low-cut tuxedo waistcoat, e.g.:

    You're in high school, don't think too much aboutyour attire. It's OK.

    People only wear this sort of thing to prom because they're too young to know any better. I wore some awful stuff when I was that age, but I wish I'd had a resource like this forum to teach me the error of my ways back then. Why bother asking for opinions if you're just going to ignore them?

    Also, when did people in England start calling it 'prom'?

    You're attending some sort of secondary school function, and yet haven't grasped the use of punctuation? Namely, the period.
