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,

    Based on what I've been able to gather from interior design tastes around here, I suspect that these rooms do not look uncomfortable enough to be considered appealing.

    i'd be uncomfortable if any of those were mine.



    remove all of the litter from picture #1, and we could be on to something.

    Almost all American houses these days have a TV hanging right above the fire place or high level, which makes viewing very uncomfortable.

    Given the same treatment, #4 has potential, too.

    gasoline and a match?

    Dragon, I have both of my tv's hung at 40" from center to floor. I always found looking up at the TV to be very uncomfortable.

    This is a satire thread, right?

    Actually, a more classical look is much more to my taste than some of the more modern stuff that gets the love around here (i.e. in Foo's other thread), but this is not where I would start.

    Agreed. They all could do with a cleaning out of the small decorative pieces. And I'm not saying I'd choose all the furniture from the pics. I just appreciate that most of the seating isn't angular and concrete.

    Looking up is supposed to put a strain on your eyes and neck. Monitors, screens are much easier to view if you look slightly down.
