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.

Do find it fucking irritating to have the homepage change every 3 months or so?

    I couldn't agree more. Everything just gets more f*cked up and slows down.

    SO it's not me! This is reassuring. I thought I had somehow hit a wrong key and changed everything! I've spent the last day trying to get things back to normal :mad:

    I'm a huge fan of these changes. I like the ads. I like the little survey pop-ups. I like seeing some random dude in a suit holding a teacup. These complaints are unfounded as far as I'm concerned.

    This.

    And before you could type in the URL for the page that would give you new posts for your subscriptions but now it doesn't load anymore? (http://www.styleforum.net/forum/newposts/filter/feed)

    I concur. I really miss the B&S thread column too. Got a staple Polo suit there for like $400 a couple months ago thanks to that thing. Wouldn't have seen it had it not been for the B&S presence on the front page. I'm sure it would have been gone in an hour.

    And now the B&S column is gone. :( I hardly knew ye.

    I don’t mind change, its necessary, but I don’t understand the purpose behind some of the changes being made to the homepage. Just about every 3 months, the homepage changes with no apparent "value-add." Past layout changes include: forum threads rearranged, some added while others removed, B&S view comes and goes, various carousel items featuring articles/blogs are added and then removed, and the most recent change also includes the addition of the photo carousel. Photos of ties and pants added by other members are displayed on my homepage. Really? Why?

    The SF user experience improved after the Huddler transformation. It took a couple of weeks to adjust but once you became familiar with it, the improvement from the previous site was overwhelmingly apparent. However since then, the SF homepage has changed 3-4 times with no apparent benefit. These changes force you to once again adjust but without any benefit to the SF experience.

    Why are you doing this and why is it happening so frequently?

    I also enjoy both the "Featured Sponsors" section which include links to a dozen clothing boutiques and the "Styleforum Affiliate Links" section that includes 40 individual links. Big fan of the assorted photos of different coloured ties btw.
