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.

    It's November, which means the holidays are fast approaching. In the annual tradition of styleforum, we'll be buying ourselves massive quantities of clothing and footwear on sale. What better way to spread some holiday cheer than to enable baller (or even mediocre) international purchases?

    So, I thought I'd combine this tradition with our penchant for pinching pennies when spending thousands on shit we don't need. Thus, I bring you:

    http://www.styleforum.net/content/type/61/id/553676/width/500/height/1000[/IMG[/CENTER]

    [B]The rules are simple- [/B]
    1. No proxy fees are allowed*
    2. Only actual shipping costs are charged**
    3. Offer to proxy while asking for one. For instance:

    [B]OFFER:[/B] Pickled herring and fermented shark from Iceland to ten people anywhere in the world
    [B]NEED:[/B] Common Projects Achilles Mids in 43 (or should I size up three to 7.25??) from cheapfakeCPs.com

    4. PM the person who needs what you offer or offers what you need and set up the deal.
    5. When either your offer or need is fulfilled, just do a [S]strikethrough[/S] rather than deleting.

    I feel like it's a good time to bump this thread. Feel free to offer even if you don't need anything. If you need something but don't have much to offer, post as well.

    Yes, it's crazy. Kinder even started making plastic eggs where the chocolate was in one sealed half, and the toy was in another sealed half, and that still wasn't good enough for the FDA. I assure you, my ten year-old daughter knows not to try to eat small toys...
