    The current winter isn't even over, it was below zero C the other day here.

    Now that his designs have skewed more conservative as of late, I've come to think of it as a high-end Uniqlo :stirpot:

    Ervell has always been conservative. His "core" has basically been the same few things his whole career (button ups, 5-pockets, pocket sweaters) with different prints and fabrics. He has 1-2 different things each season but for the most part his line is just basic staples. I have no problem with that though, Ervell is one of my favourite designers but I can't remember him being anything other than conservative, or "classic" if you prefer that term.

    For some reason I have memories of him doing more adventurous things in the past. Those oxide prints just left an impression, you know?

    Yeah, I mean he still does do different things but it's almost always fabric/print oriented. Like the watercolour prints this year and the ocean print last year. It's still on a standard button up or cotton T though.

    Just re-read the thumbs discussion from last night. Had an idea for a UI tweak:

    Have the thumb comment box appear on mouseover rather than mouse click. That way, you can still add a comment-less thumb with one click, but you can also add some text if you want to. Boom. Compromise.

    They seem to bother a lot of people, including guys like Brad. The ccommunity is not just people who agree with you. In 2015, an extra click is a lot. It's really a UX issue, and I've brought this up with development, but comments will remain off until it's fixed. Not ideal, but we do.what we can.

    vitatimh's idea of two buttons 1 for pure thumbs, 1 for thumb comments seemed like it might have potential. I hope you guys explore that one :)

    Absolutely agreed. But development takes time and resources. I suggested something similar already. There really is not muchore discussion.

    Is there a good reason for no down thumbs? Do we think that we're not mature enough to use those to quickly express disagreement in the same way we use up thumbs?

    There's value in bringing more balance and symmetry to the discussion - and sometimes "discussion" means a quick yea or nay, not a full dissertation punctuated by "IMHO" and "YMMV". Other times, discussion entails detailed arguments - but not always. I think we'd all benefit from a less asymmetrical approach to quick feedback.

    The absence of thumbs on a post speaks to me as negative thumbs would in many cases, not that it gives much of an indication of intensity of disagreement. (and I'm all for thumb comments if one-click thumbs can happen too)

    I've seen communities both benefit and suffer from negrep. It's nice to be able to downvote patently unhelpful or poisonous comments, but neg rep also sparks a bandwagoning effect where perfectly reasonable posts get shafted just because the first few reps were negative (obviously positive rep causes a bandwagoning effect too, but I'd argue it doesn't skew discussions as much as negrep does).

    Plus, I'm less interested in who disagrees with a post than why.
