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.

    If they don't pay then block them from buying from you again

    When I click on the "last post" link to this thread, it obviously takes me straight to the bottom of the page and I scroll up to where I left off. Scrolling up, is it that crazy that I see a few photos and can say "I'll bet this is DarkMatter's post"?

    Yo, Frenchy (if it is indeed you): What catside said. The fewer bombs you lob, the longer they'll let you hang around this time.

    Oh, you have a worthy nemesis in darkmatter. I look forward to the "finds duels." It's on!

    I can't take it anymore. Darkmatter, I'm coming to visit you in the next few weeks and going to campout at these stores. I should find enough stuff to at least pay for the trip. I've always wanted to see California anyway.

    I did the same thing. Was halfway through the pics and realized it had to be DarkMatter. I think it was the second Isaia that did it.

    I didn't go anywhere today. My best spot is having a 50% off/get rid of stock day Friday and Saturday, so not only would it have been packed, but I know what was there yesterday so there was no point (the turn-around isn't that quick). But I'm definitely looking forward to next week.

    Off-topic: Does anyone do their own alterations? I hem pants and skirts (good to pick things up for the wife), shorten/lengthen sleeves and stuff like that. Saves money on alterations and is surprisingly quick and easy.

    Of course I was wrong.

    And Im telling you a second time now, quit trolling. My 2 year old daughter listens after two times, I hope you do too.


    I could make a head joke here, but Ill just say no. :)
