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,

    He had a few chances to get profound or funny, but he blew it.

    What happened to the shoe pictorial index sticky? Before the first server move it was slow but still worked. After the first move, it's fast and worked smoothly but after the latest move, it doesn't work anymore. [​IMG]

    I don't know what's up with that. I'm trying to figure it out. At the moment, you can at least view the cached version on google.

    http://72.14.253.104/search?q=cache:...lnk&cd=1&gl=us

    And the archive version still works, so at least we haven't lost the info. If we need to paste it into a new thread, we can do that.

    what is this 'tags' box i am suddenly seeing on top of some threads J? Why is it on some and not the others? Where will the tags be searchable? edit - sorry there it is http://styleforum.net/announcement.php?f=&a=6
    I can add tags to old threads, and I'm going through and doing that when I have spare time. The idea of the tags is to create another way to browse through the forum that can help with topics that are hard to search for.

    For example (not relevant to our forum, but an example given on another forum) one forum is for doctors and has topics tagged with 'hand' when it's about hand issues or surgery. This is beneficial because if you search for "hand" it brings up many irrelevant threads.

    Plus it's cool once a lot of threads have been tagged to go to the tag 'cloud' page here:

    http://styleforum.net/tags/

    and the ones that are more frequently used get bigger, like the tagging in Flickr and some other sites that use a similar system.

    J, do you know what happened to the shoe pictorial index? It's been inaccessable for at least 2 days. Is it fixable? Or is it available to paid subscribers only?

    J, somehow the links on the Google cache verson don't work with imageshack, while the links on the archive version are not clickable. I have index backed up, do you want me to repost it as a new post on the original thread (new members or lurkers may not know where to look) or to start a new thread. You can always remove the new thread/post once the original thread is fixed. I don't want to mess up with the server with the new thread or post.

    I think it's possible that the first post just got too big. If you want to start a new thread and split it across multiple posts, that might be the best thing.

    BTW, I may have a photo gallery hack coming soon, so this might be able to be all thumbnailed and searchable, etc. But for now, a new post might be the best idea.

    Ok, I'll start a new index thread but split it into 5 posts: EG, JL, C&J, Vass & others. What's that thumbnailed, searchable gallery you're brewing?

    Why was the thread about decent shoes in Target stores obliterated?

    The "Tony Snow - Best Dressed Man in Washington" thread has gone bye-bye as it had gone from any sort of discussion about Snow, his clothing or his cancer, to ad hominem attacks on the administration and various SF members.

    Sorry about that guys - I think that was sort of single-handedly my fault...was going to check on it when I got back but I guess it's better left buried...

    Sorry once again.

    Pray tell J -- what did he finally do that warranted his time out? [​IMG]

    Mostly just more drunken posting. This stretch is a while longer so he can reflect on whether he feels he can shape up.

    Without getting all father figure here... he should probably look into some help. College student or not, the level of drinking he boasts about here is far from healthy, plus the codiene usage to take the pain away... sounds like trouble. Two words: STEEZ INVERVENTION!!!11!

    (maybe just a ban from the CEPM, and Social Life forums until his act cleans up?)

    BTW, shouldn't he be studying for finals? DAMMIT! Am I the only one here fucking busting my ass for this shit? Get to work boy, and stop fucking around.

    I have banned Patrick Bateman permanently, in a completely capricious decision on my part. I'm sure my sycophantic colleagues will back me up, having urged me to do so for many months.

    I am now truly master of my Internet domain.

    Here's the thing: if you are a guest in someone's house, don't go to neighbor's place and piss across the driveway.

    Fok.

    No hostility, just curious.
