1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    Has SF been hacked?
    What's up with all the spam posts?
    The mods happily delete our posts, but this is fine?

    I hope they just haven't gotten around to it yet. I have to admit it's becoming a nuisance to locate the actual threads amongst all the spam. Plus it's totally insane, who here would give a hoot about black magic?

    We need more Asian mods, on the same time-zones as the spammers.

    Think all the mods are in the US, and are in bed. Clear up the mess when they wake up... hopefully.

    I've reported the spammers over the last few days, and included in my report the simple advice to moderate x number of posts for new users e.g. the first 10, before new users are allowed to post unmoderated.

    Just for fun, everyone should start PMing him like crazy so it interrupts his work. How has he gotten 65 posts in there?!

    I hadn't considered that, but I suppose it's possible.

    Yeah. Someone needs to explain the rules to him. He should really keep all these posts in his official Affiliate Vendor thread.


    Small timer.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to hire a robocall company.
