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.

    Glad this is up and running.

    1. Everyone should post photos of the TSB contents coming in and out.
    2. You can take max 2 ties, and put minimum 2 ties in. Do not use the TSB as your dumping ground. Do not put ties in that have snags, have significant alterations (shortening), wider than 3.6", or shorter than 56" / longer than 60"
    3. Do not hold the box for more than 3 days without shipping it back out. If you are away/going to be away/ busy, etc, let us know so that we may regulate the flow of the TSB (post in the thread here for transparency).
    4. Once the box is shipped out, post the tracking # here in the thread so all TSB participants know where the box is and can track it's progress.
    5. If you have any questions - post here / ask.

    This box, and the success of the box relies on honesty and integrity.

    Stitch will be in charge of regulating anyone who steps out of line.

    I think that being that the squares suck they shouldn't included in the total (IE you can swap 2 ties + a square or two)

    id be glad for someone to take all the squares. but if you take it, it means you like it. in which case, reciprocate accordingly.

    +1. do not take more than one square without adding a square of your own.

    there is a nice raw silk shantung moss green square in there. that one is worth an addition.

    have fun, but make the box better - do not look to take as much as possible from the box. stitch and I believe that the box can be good if we all follow this path.

    there are many new with tags, new without tags, and gently used ties in there. keep it in that vein. the second someone puts a less than amazing item in the box, it will all go downhill.

    I didnt mean that I will just turn the box into a crap shoot, I just figured I would point it out since the squares for teh most part leave much to be desired, that we wont be so strict on the squares (and that you can take 2 ties +squares)

    lets put it this way, dont do to the box what you would not someone else to do to it.

    remember, worst case scenario, i malign the offending party all over the forum, day and night. :D
