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,

Sound of shoes... :)

    Does anyone here like shoes which make audible klick-klock sounds when their heels strike the floor? I find the sound very nice to listen to, and it signals my arrival to my friends, but it makes startling them from behind a thing of the past, since they would probably hear me a mile away. That pair of shoes which makes the loudest actually make an even louder sound when they are snapped together at the side of the heels, like the way some armies want their soldiers to snap to attention (the nazi German army? The Chinese army?). I remember doing that once when I tried it in a shoe store and startled everyone. [​IMG] Just a question, since there are so many experts here: What sort of sole can make that sort of klick-klock sound when they strike the floor? Rubber soled shoes are pretty soft when it comes to making 'noise', if I am not wrong. And... what sort of heels would make that crazy 'kluck.' sound when snapped together? WJTW

    Believe it or not, Bass Weegins make a very satisfying sound when clicked together. (But might not be ideal as part a Hallowe'en World War II uniform. . . .)
