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.

    the more the murikans try and squeeze a win out here, only makes the loss that much more obvious. :(

    my apologies. i did not put an end time in the poll. i edited it in. i would have closed it out earlier because this just needs to end, but it seems that midnight tonight is the earliest i am allowed to let it end.

    team furriner, want to decide who your leader/representative will be?

    This was a bit closer than the voting suggests, but I still agree with the majority in voting Furriner.

    In terms of top-notch outfits it went 4:3 for the Furriners, with the Don, timo, Pingson & EFV vs Roycru, Seajen & AAS. There was also more consistency for the Furriners in terms of the number of "nearly great" outfits.

    Really nice contest. I like these team events as it gives lots of flexibility to entrants. Maybe there should be more of them, though the future criteria are admittedly hard to come up with.

    It's nice to see the surge of peak lapels and three piece suits. Some excellent look from both sides.

    I like the idea of more group challenges. Maybe even breaking things down further: East Coast vs. West Coast, Europe vs. Asia. Something like that. Or even by clothing category: Suits vs. Sport Coats, Dress vs. Casual. Wasn't there once a Classic Menswear vs. Streetwear & Denim?

    Alright, that makes it easy, Pingson should be the well-deserved victor of this challenge.
