    Default Forum Changes

    A few changes I would like to discuss with the members. I know we've talked about it for a while, but I finally made a separate subforum for affiliates. I think it will be beneficial to the stores, because they now have more visibility and to the members, because we now don't have so many sticky threads in shopping and personal style.

    Also, I am ready to retire the "history of fashion" subforum, since it does get updated much. Let me know if feel I should keep it and why.

    these are welcome changes faust. please don't hesitate to retire that history subforum. i feel that a sense of history is intrinsic to so many other discussions that the subforum is moot. maybe you can replace it with "where2kop"? j/k :)

    I am happy for these changes, and good to see we the affiliates have their own space now.

    however I dont know if we should retire the history of fashion...........

    with the breadth and scope of knowledge I have, I should've contributed more, but have failed to do so.........

    agreed with merz - that's the same line of thought i've been having. if people are not interested in something, can't force it on them.

    It looks so much cleaner, Faust.

    And I'm sure affiliates will appreciate having their own "mall" .Great idea!

    Good new changes, definitely keeps it cleaner and also easier for members to find the affiliates - being one click away from the front page makes a big difference.

    im liking the new changes as well.

    with regards to wanting to maintain a sense of history, perhaps we can start a "History of Fashion" thread with links to selected discussions, in the same fashion as the "Best of SZ" thread.

    I appreciate the opportunity to be here, as a member, and to have a thread advertising (some of) my services, as long as you can find me when you need me, I dont care where the thread is located............

    The new subforum is very handy and it looks well organized.
    I like Nikov's idea of creating a History of fashion thread instead. I never really dared to post there but I liked the possibility of discussing fashion history, even though I was never sure along which lines, but a thread may be less intimidating.

    Edit : ok I read it wrong, but an index thread would still be good.

    Funny, because I asked for this in order to force junk out of PM boxes (and conserve space). I did not meant for it to produce the opposite effect.

    this change was too hasty, i didn't even bother to check on how many peeps would be affected

    i've increased the limit to 5000 again

    faust, if you still want to lower this limit, pick a date and give everyone fair warning...
