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.

    Seriously, over already? I posted in the other thread twice that I'd be in for Tie Box 2 and only saw this thread now....I can't get in? Gotta wait for the trilogy to come out?

    To be fair, I did see Unbelregazzo's post over in the original thread. Just forgot to add him to the list...

    I am in DC, and to make it easier/faster, I could just collect in person from the other DC member provided he works or lives in the city somewhat close to a metro stop. But if it's too much hassle, it's no big deal, I'll just wait for the next one.

    It would be great if we can plot this out to make a giant tie on the map. How :slayer: would that be??

    Quick question: I know this is going to work on the honor system, but How are ties rated for the give VS. take? Yes I know I obviously cant take a Kiton and put in a van heusen tie, but does Zegna=Kiton/Marinelli? Where does, say, Brooks Brothers stand?
