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 regret asking for mine. I only asked because I was certain it would not be granted. [​IMG]

    I found yours especially confusing. I thought we had an impostor at first. Maybe it's worth a $5 donation to get it changed back.

    Hmm, this might be a better fundraising scheme. Change people's names to embarassing ones and then charge to change them back.

    I know the feeling. Have you considered changing it to MANton?

    All I know is I've been begging for a name change forever but it never happened. And now that I think about it, the name I had picked may not have been as cool and witty as I had thought, which makes it all a blessing in disguise. In other news, I am stuck in the office until real late, and oh so happy I have SF to read at least, because now I keep wanting people to post in that thread about buggering chickens.

    You are totally missing your marketing opportunity. People are awful and many of us are passive-aggressive. You need to charge people money to change enemy posters names to embarrassing ones and then hold an auction between the changer and the changee to determine what the final name will be.

    If you need an agent, PM me.

    Sorry for the downtime. It shouldn't have taken anywhere near that long. I figured while the site kept going nuts with load, I might as well just take it down for a little bit and optimize the dbase. (pasted from other thread) I was having the server people optimize the database again hoping it would speed things up a bit, the first guy did it wrong ([​IMG]) and then after/while the next guy got it working right, we got DoS'ed. (Attacked) Anyone know any of these fine folks?

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] script is still running, and the site seems to be doing okay now. Hopefully that will handle it for tonight, because I'd like to leave my house. P.s. this is why you run antivirus and firewall and don't open every damn attachment that every idiot sends you in your email. Your computer becomes a zombie and then attacks us.
