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,

    How do people get those secondary titles? (not the 'site monitors/dubiously honored', but the 'opposite santa' ones)

    Can we make up our own titles? I'd pay a half sawbuck to make up my own title.

    Has shock wave flash been crashing consistently on SF (for the last day or so) for anybody else?

    No, but they are occasionally given, for example, because someone says something funny about you, which is where the Opposite Santa came from. You can also get them if say, you win one of the first ever Dubious Honor Awards (see Classic Menswear and Streetwear and Denim forums, or today's newsletter).

    Shockwave flash is still crashing on SF all the bloody time, as in every couple of minutes, making the site rather cumbersome to navigate.

    Also, I got an email from SF noting me of a new private message and my PC warned me that it was a 'suspected phishing message'. No such warnings from my normal subscription update mails or from from other SF notification mails.

    The days of the internet and satellites are numbered. The wise are learning how to dress game and how to make fire.

    You know, that's a good idea. How come SF doesn't have an official "How To Dress" game?

    I'm picturing a version of those "Worst Case Scenario" card games. Or, more ambitiously, "Cards Against Humanity."

    And then there's the SW&D expansion pack.

    Shockwave still churning up memory, so navigation freezes, and then crashes. It's so routine if I'm in another browser tab or in my Excel or something, and the machine slows down, I just automatically close the SF tab and it frees up the machine every time. This happens on all my machines and across a couple of different browsers.

    any system that determines "why is a pillar of the community" is fundamentally flawed and must be scrapped.

    Styleinshade is actually showing up before styleforum (or is the next 3 options right after) on some of my google searches

    Yes, same here. It's quite frustrating.

    Is that what's going on? I have had a similar problem which seems to be caused by SF. It doesn't happen always so I assume it is something in one of the ads that is loading. I'm assuming that's where the ransomware attack of a couple of days ago came from too.

    This issue is extremely annoying. I'm possibly going to stop looking at this site until it's resolved. @LA Guy - Fok do you have any updates about this and whether it's being addressed?
