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,

    Say more Stitch? I don't frequent the WAYWRN thread much anymore, relying on this digest...examples you want to post in the GNAT or Lounge thread for discussion?

    Yep, it looks like order has been restored after the initial "thumb" frenzy.....I'm glad. Looks like I'll squeak in on the next batch.

    It's high summer in the southern hemisphere, and the holidays/4Q/YE close everywhere. My guess is it's just an ebb.

    Then again I've always contended that thumbs are only an indirect and imprecise gauge, and influenced by myriad non-fit related factors.

    In some ways I would prefer more thumbing on WAYWRN rather than less. It would lend more statistical significance to the numbers.

    Like Stitchy, I've also noticed a drop-off in thumbing this week. Pretty sure that would be due to a drop-off in readership, itself attributable to the fact that most peoples' lives tend to get really busy in the week leading up to the festive season.

    I predict that thumbing rates will remain low until mid January, by which time most of us will have returned to work.

    I think its due to readership as well, though only Fok could attests to that. I know that Im hella busy at work and wont be power browsing again until after Jan 1.

    Tweedy, sorry, but I barely had time to compile, let alone comment in detail. Ill try and get on that later if I can. :)

    I'm of two minds. On one hand, more thumbs add statistical significance. On the other hand, some fits--some of mine included, though neither in this batch--were squeaking in that really shouldn't have.

    Yup, it was down to SB and Don for "best country", but Don just does the country colour/texture stuff so well.

    True that. I think DonC's talent for colour and texture matching is, well... unmatched.
