Thought I'd crowdsource any improvements you guys think are needed, and possibly get some help from people on where and what to look into.

I know for sure we need a Favicon image and a slightly improved logo. DYSong Photography Chris JetBlast you guys might know what to do there.

We were thinking about removing the forum landing page for something like this in its place:
https://www.ravelry.com/account/login

Same type of landing page with a login and password, and maybe a revolving set of nice menswear images. Then you'd get into the forum from there.

And most importantly, WE NEED MORE CLOTHING CONTENT AND POSTERS.

Suggestions on the last one are most definitely welcome.

Some people have been asking about a classified section. We're looking at modding the default forum resource manager to make it a classified. The default looks like this:

CapturFiles.png

Now, we can edit the tab names, and add in a variety of categories. For instance: shirts, shoes, outerwear, etc. Each "listing" looks like this:
CapturFiles_1.png

CapturFiles_2.png

And this is what the directory would look like:

CapturFiles_3.png

The problem with this is threefold:

One - this is basically made to be an uploader of files (videos, pdf's, etc) so it would take a lot of editing.
Two - the tabs at the top aren't customizable at the moment (latest, new, most, etc.)
Three - we have no idea how well it would work.

If there would be a classified section, it would be nice if you can do a very specific search or at least that if you can search by your size. In SF it's really really boring just browsing by Blazers and Suits, cause you waste a lot of time opening threads that are not your size.

MORE CLOTHING CONTENT YOU FUCKERS!!!! (Rambo, you've heard this from me ad nauseum, so it's not directed at you)

Seriously. We need to spend some time in this thread thinking about how to encourage more discussion (note I don't say more information--we have SF for that).

You'll notice up in the top left of the navbar a new tab for the Classifieds section. This is modeled after a resource manager (something where you'd upload files or materials and other people could download it) but it has excellent categorization and in depth options. At this point, since the software is relatively new, there's only so much we can do with it. But, we need your help in testing and changing the features that are there. So, for the time being, try it out and post things for sale. Let us know what we need to add, change, fix, etc. and we'll see if we can get it done. As always, we thank you for your help and support in getting the site up and running.

I would like to be a moderator. I will incite, confuse, disrupt and generally make things worse. We will all have a good laugh.

As much as I like chaos, mayhem and anarchy I would have to be an administrator if you end up as a mod Hoss. Somebody has to diffuse the nukes you would leave all over the place. LOL!
Yeah, well, I don't know who the fuck you are so I don't give a shit about your opinions. <<<<<That's how you moderate! Nailed it.

I got lost on my way to Missing Members. But I would love it if Albert Hal posted here.

Even if you don't have something to sell, create a listing. Just ask me to delete it later. We need all the feedback we can get.

This black theme is easy to ready while being on a PC... via mobile, it's really hard, my eyes hurt yesterday reding on the iPad.

If any of you are having problems getting started, click the classifieds button. If you get the dropdown box, just click it again. On the next page there should be an Add Classified button on the top-mid right.

We need a good paragraph on the forum for our invite email, and 300 characters on the forum for our Facebook invite. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not feeling the creative juices at the moment.

We're trying to create a Facebook account. I was thinking about listing us as a business. Suggestions on which category to choose?

https://www.facebook.com/pages/create/

Listed us as an organization. But that doesn't seem right. There were no heading under business for "internet" or "online business". I need to plug something into the description box. Suggestions? I was thinking something along the lines of: "The internet's new home for discussion on all things clothing and life related. Free from ads, bullshit, salesmen, and snark. Where you can have people tell you that you look like crap, without a riot rising up and threatening you with expulsion from the gang. Where you can discuss politics without wanting to stab a knife through your monitor. Where you can sneak a peak of naked women while at work, all under the guise of looking for suiting advice. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?"

Chorn has some write-in suggestions:
WDWV: Come for the style, stay for the transvestites
WDWV: The bullshit free home of style, current events, and transvestites.
WDWV: Transvestites

HAHAHA! :LOLguy-88:

What I like here is that it's still a growing community and there are no guys whinning about how many post you made a day or if you already have passed the post count of certain guy. Also the naked woman part... that might attract lesbian, which is probably nice, but a bunch of real women can make the forum better.

Although they might not be around a lot cause we might be all over them. :dumb-91:

We're thinking about adding a Shoutbox style chat system. Would you guys have any interest in that? It allows IRC/Chat room style chats to run on the forum itself. Here's how it would look:



It can also function as an alert window, showing thread replies and posts:


The ability to view who's in the chat could be listed in the upcoming sidebar as well.

The main access would be from a tab at the top of the nav bar.

I like. Would you be able to join the chatroom via IRC? That would be grand, so I could at least idle most of the day over there.
Unfortunately, it would be based solely on the forum, so no.

I think I'm going to bow out of this forum on Monday. There's just not enough meat on the bone. And I'm getting bored.

Totally, I'm in no position to be dramatic at all. Just not sure it's for me anymore, no harm in that, right? Mmmmm, if you want to take things personally when there is zero animosity on my side let me know.

My post you reacted to was not worded well at all, I fuck up sometimes. Oops.

I loves you Hoss. You're welcome back any time. I'll be damned if we're going anywhere. If you want to stick around during the lean times, we'd love to have you. If you want to wait to hop on the bandwagon, well, then that's ok too. Your happiness is all that matters.

That's a low fucking blow. Whether you're familiar with the term or not,you're talking about 'rat lines', not on my ship. I don't touch rat lines, this men's fashion forum ship will sail!

A bandwagon!? Like a yellow-bellied, land roaming, city loving queen?
Nahhh...

Only 3 more months until I start wearing real clothes (and am more inclined to post about them). Fall can't come soon enough.

I use public transportation and walk a lot. Seoul is too hot for any kind of suit. I had no problem with suits in summer in Texas, which is hotter, but there I had a car. I went from an air conditioned car to an air conditioned building...the only real heat I had to deal with was that of the parking lot.
