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

    Am I the only one who feels that this is a total shit show? I don't mean to be insulting but holy crap, this rollout is almost as bad as the obamacare website roll out - I suppose the different being the money spent into it & time. But either way, its not good.

    Wow, sorry to hear that Razl, it was a great feature and you really enhanced Styleforum with your extremely well curated posts!

    This rollout is a "new Coke" style clusterfuck; when are people going to learn that if it ain't broke don't fix it?

    I agree wholeheartedly! If it doesn't get better I'm not going to waste my time with it.

    lol. The other option was to let the forum just go away. The platform we were on will no longer be available in a couple of months, period.

    Hi Razl,

    If you can start a PM conversation with me, I'd like to explore with you alternative ways of doing things. I really do like this feature.

    Sorry about that. Have you filled out all of the fields? That seems to have been the main issue. If all fields have an entry, that seems to solve most of the issues we've seen.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    being a developer at certain point of my life, I sympathize the situation these guys are in, it's not like we pay to this website for them to have some professional in house development team..., I imagine everything is out the box and try to squeeze to their requirements

    And as a buyer (usually not a seller, not enough liquidity) I have to say the new format does look better. Not as smooth as Grailed (and to be fair the whole purpose of that website was to be just B&S as suppose to SF which is jack of all trade), but way better than the old ones.

    Did you have something in the tags field? not greater than 10 seems to be the secret number

    So, it was working, but is no longer working?

    I'll have to take a look tomorrow. It's 9:30 here, and I've been doing this pretty much all day. Will see what is going on tomorrow. If anything changes on your end, please do tell me.

    Cheers,

    Fok.
