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 post less, clothingwise, because I feel I've learned a great deal of what I wanted to know. Should I even go on some big bespoke adventure, I am now feeling well informed.

    Personally, I haven't bought a piece of clothing in months. I have soooooooo much clothing now I have no need for anything else at the moment.

    I still feel like I have a lot to learn. Plus there are a few things that simply interest me (see the blazer post).

    There are certainly fewer Jantzen posts these days, but things will pick up now that Ricky's taking orders again. Also, the Grenson bomb is about to go off.

    some newbies go out of their way to be confrontational or controversial in order to make a "name" for themselves a la Matt Bevalaqua. (Can you tell what I have been doing for the last several weeks? [​IMG])

    When I arrived in Brussels I ended up plowing through the DVD set for seasons 1-4. That was 52 solid hours in less than three weeks!! I couldn't look at the TV for the next month.

    I also thought post-crash posts just seemed more vituperative in general, and especially so in the general fora, but I still learn so much that I'm loathe to just "bag it," particularly with respect to Jantzen, but also with bespoke (though God knows when I'd ever be able to afford it).

    Horse: what do you mean by the "Grenson bomb?" Is Bennies expecting a kind of final Masterpiece shipment?

    And this time I plan to be right at the point of impact (and then, naturally, obliterate my wallet) [​IMG]
    It does seem like the forum is moving a little slowly but I am not concerned. People still post, it will just take a while for things to settle down I think.
    Anyway, goodbye Gorgekko, while we may not have necessarily agreed with everything you stated you will be missed [​IMG]

    Jeremy told me that the particular member was going straight into banishment…but I guess he never did. RJMan has been after him a bit, but the member won’t let up. I guess V is for Valueless. Jon.
    Between E's (temporary) return, S's unpleasantness and V's daft ramblings, I think we are covered as far as forum "characters" are concerned. I have found that the ignore function works well, and saves me from fuming. I think the fact that I missed this place so much has now made me less tolerant of consistantly inane chaff and suchlike. Edit: I got the initial wrong: should be S not A! Now fixed. Thanks!

    Post-crash there seems to be less clothing content. Streetwear is pretty dead.

    Yeah... we're working on that. I may need to make some new lists over the weekend, hopefully sparking some discussions.

    I too am sorry to see you go gorgekko. I could always count on you to add some content to a very noisy discussion.

    Actually, the ones that did (or at least didn't hate me( are over here already. Except for one dude I know personally. Maybe he didn't get the memo or something... PRoblem is that some of the best, most knowledgeable posters just lurk...

    Arg! Do you have to keep bringing it up? With all the hype, all the shoes in my size (that being, uh, 9.5) will sell out before I even see the post announcing their arrival. [​IMG]

    To paraphrase a famous movie about gay shepherds, "I wish I knew how to quit you Style Forum." My exile barely lasted two and a half weeks.

    Sigh, perhaps I'll give it another chance. Next time if I go, no stupid announcements.

    Welcome back, Gorgekko. But I have to say, I took a liking to your brother.
