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,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    If there's any concern about the size of the forum, it might make sense to delete buying and selling threads that are more than a year old

    Yeah, I have pruned the B&S before but that's not what makes things slow. MySQL is very efficient so all that stuff is really just taking up storage space, which is basically unlimited. Additionally, that stuff adds to our search engine traffic and brings new members and buyers for sweaters, scarves, ties, links, etc.... [​IMG]

    As a seller, old sales threads are good for market research.

    Yeah, if you have something very specific Google will pick it up and rank it very highly, especially if you have links to your B&S posts in your sig. For example, my Inis Meain sweater posts were #1 on google for "inis meain" and "inis meain sweaters" for a long time.

    It's handy just in general, particularly with things like measurements and other common Q&A.

    True dat. I always wish that sellers wouldn't edit away the whole sales post to say Sold", but rather just add "sold" to the top, so that all the work he did measuring and photographing can be there as a resource.

    The "Socal is really pissing me off" thread is pissing me off. Can we have it locked? Or at least move it to the CEes pool. It's pure troll feeding, it has nothing to do with tailored clothings. It's one thing a troll started an inane thread, it's another to see it consistently stay on top of the page. It sets a bad tone for the forum. And I am getting tired of EG's antics.

    Eh, he's harmless (although it's the beginning of the end when you come with "Socal is really pissing me off" as a thread title...).

    Tell ya one thing, though, he's far less entertaining than the reactions he manages to get out of people.

    Kennyghetzoff or whatever is in the can for 2 weeks for either being homophobic or for making a very ill-advised joke. In either case, he made me have to interrupt my Friday evening watching The Wire, so he is taking a break.

    Someone spaminated you on accident. I have made changes that hopefully will prevent that from happening in the future. I undeleted all your threads and tried to put them back in the forums I figured they came from. If you notice any that are in the wrong place, let me know.

    But how will i know what jeans fit similar to RRDS? [​IMG] On a different note. See, i wasn't crazy a few weeks ago when i said i was able to edit thread titles in the thread listing page. [​IMG] Maybe it's only before someone responds to it. I just clicked next to the title and the thread title became a white box that i could edit.
