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,

    But why pretend that people aren't influenced by who the poster is, though? Parker and Synthese could post the most basic, boring fit, but they'll still get at least 14 thumbs up simply because people like them. I know I've been prompted to give a thumb up to a fit I'm not necessarily crazy over a few times just because of who the poster is. Or sometimes I get caught up with everyone else if a post has a large number of thumbs and is close to reaching a certain number. Like, if they're at 99, I'll add one to make it 100.

    Not sure whether the black pants work with the color of the jacket. Jacket is a little darker than outdoor picture (a little overexposed) shows.

    Just to clarify, recognizing that people may actually enjoy fits like casey's is not the same as "pretending people aren't influenced by who the poster is"

    I support the views of jipz and Hr. Huh on this. I have see here average and even pretty shitty fits (posted by old timers/popular posters) that got lots of thumbs and good to outstanding fits that hardly got any thumbs. I personally dislike this kind of approach but at the same time perfectly understand that this phenomenon is inevitable. Good that some posters, like Chairs, are at least honest and admit that they sometimes give a thumb to a fit only because it belongs to a certain poster. I, personally, am never biased when giving my thumb. I often give thumbs to people I don't particularly like (or by whom I'm not particularly liked) only because I like the particular fit.

    On the topic of radical style evolution, I had a pretty big one as well. I recently went back to my post history for fun and stumbled upon this gem hahaha:

    And more recently:


    Thank god for Styleforum. Even though what I'm doing now isn't anything majorly special, it's much much better than what I had going on then.

    This will be my last post on this subject, but just so we're clear, you realize you're saying "I don't like it, therefore anyone who presses the thumbs button must be doing it solely because of the poster behind it," right?

    waywt thumbs for me serve a few purposes.

    1. acknowledging a good fit
    2. acknowledging progress in fit, perhaps with a few encouraging words
    3. really fucking awesome photoshop

    #3 is the most important

    Huge improvement Lokesh! Gloves are cool, but I think the fit would be better without them.

    This is a discussion thread and Casey has listened to peoples advice on how to improve on his fits and I think it's shown I'm sure a large majority of those thumbs were from people that been around.

    you know we coulda just pointed out what was cool about the casey fit:

    (a sf-biased list)
    well-fitting garments
    successful integration of high/low elements
    louche
    monochrome

    it's clearly a high-risk fit because of the tux jacket but I think Casey pulled it off. if the pose/scene had been a lil better I'm not sure we'd be having this discussion. it coulda been a contender in the incongruity challenge.

    brad, is that the fur that came w/ the toj? if so, they was right, elevates the fit

    errr I don't mean to be cruel but that outfit looks like he spent a great deal of time and money to look like a salesperson at an Express in Columbia, Maryland.

    i have had a pretty dramatic improvement since SF, but its all on the MC side. sorry, guys.

    i just want to be sure, does anyone actually get upset when a post they dont want to thumb gets thumbs from other people? is that a real thing?

    i mean, i could get being upset if you think you had a great a fit and no one gave you props, hell, i just did that. but why the eff does it matter if and why someone else is getting thumbs?
