1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    He's one of the most knowledgeable posters here, but also, I hear, an incredible tailor. So I think he deserves his own thread.

    Sadly, other than my admiration and desire, I have nothing else to share. So please post pics of your Despos-es. Quotes of your favorite posts from big D are also welcome.

    He's not as old as he looks in photographs.

    Thanks for the call out Slew. I am the proud wearer of 20, give or take a few, Despos creations with several more being made up.

    I have given up posting photos of my clothing (and shoes) as the line between honest, well-informed critique and rancorous bile has been forever blurred on SF. I do, however, think the world of Chris and consider him a friend who also happens to be my tailor.

    I am indeed lucky on both accounts.

    That is indeed a crying shame as some of us relative newcomers look and learn from the likes of your goodself !! [​IMG]
