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.

    its how you carry yourself. it's being natural and cool, all while only being yourself. it's an attitude, you either have it or don't. swagger is not related to wearing nice clothes, you don't need nice clothes to have swagger.

    swagger? T.I.'s got swagger. LeBron's got swagger. not a bunch of suburban kids wearing button downs, tight jeans, and desert boots... unless you use the terms 'kop' and 'jawnz'. then you can have some internet swaaaaag

    Confidence is different than swagger


    LOL

    On here? "Swagger" is a rhetorical device.

    After all, who could possibly not be in favor of it?

    It's a bit like how GW Bush used to use "freedom".

    If you ask this you have no swagger. Swagger is a vibe, it can not be measured.

    Is it a cigarette in your hand? Is it how well the picture was taken? Good physique?



    How do you obtain swagger? Is there such thing as automatic swagger ie put this this and this on and if it fits, you have swagger?

    I'm not looking so much an answer to every single question, but a discussion and I'm hoping the questions will help direct that.


    u dont has it.

    New catagory: D) 'wtf?' D) 10 +1 Extra point for also looking like you're selling tupperware when I look through the peephole of my door. Points for using SF as a reference tool against itself:
    For extra credit, can anyone distinguish swagger v. steeze v. style? We seem to use the words interchangably: wut is steeze http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=118939 wut is style http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=92368 are yoo stylish, is I stylish? http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=118028

    Swagger to me has always had connotations of doucheyness, if someone told me I had swagger I'd have to self diagnose how much of a tool I'd become.

    Post a recent picture here, and the board will decide.
