User profiles where fukers can voluntarily add more info about themselves if they wish and contained in the user profile a section where a fuker can see their last posts. More managabe PM mailbox.

And a box on the main site that tells everyone when it's my birthday… (4th may)

I second that. Also larger images on front page? New logo.
What Marian was saying about appealing to all - I've always felt the blue was very 'guy', but I like the red.

Would be quite funny to have a twitter / facebook update style thing for each member. Would be a bit like the old anon posting or "last joined user".

P.S. When is this actually going to happen? I need to ensure I've busy that day.

Make the left hand menus scroll with you or better menus at the bottom of each page, annoying having to scroll back to the top to get out of a thread. (Don't like the drop down 'jump to' menu at the bottom, 3 clicks to get out =FAIL)

Seems like lots of fashion sites are going for a "clean, white, minimalistic look". It's a bit characterless IMO

I think we miss the chaos of the anonymous posting, everything feels so restricted and organised now. Fascist!

It was fun how we'd be talking about that Adee guy on The Salon and the next thing the page was filled with spam about rifts and attempts at winding people up.

It was a simpler time, a lot more about having a laugh too.


And although it would end up looking like a superfuture imitation, I think a white/minimalistic look is the way forward.

If there was a way to encourage more pictures from people, maybe to allow hosting or automatically telling anyone who uploaded a pic that they were gorgeous, it would be great too.

the front page should deff be pared down so you can direct people to what you really want them to see first ie, new articles etc.
a slim line site with the text heavy stuff maybe 'hidden' in a further link, so you only get the first paragraph and can click for more text if you want to read on.

also the blue…that should go…its tragic.

Any word on this?

Getting rid of all the bottom banner ads for shops selling fakes would be a good start Laughing out loud

I don't really post enough to give much input, but of the main things I do is post pictures and it does get a bit tedious doing the thing, so I'm sure there must be a more techy way of making the site allow you to just paste in an image location…

…I have a very strong gut feeling that I may now find out that I am in fact the only person who does everytime, and have been missing out on a very simple method Oops

The pictures are hardly the most tiresome thing ever, I much prefer it to forums where you have to input a picture through their system.
And I'm not talking about the google links, I'm talking about the big banners by shops selling fake monclers, fake laboutins etc (been mentioned before by others)

Most people with half a brain use PHOTOBUCKET. A simples copy/paste of the img url means you don't have to type anything.

Yeah (and I like that) but if you're ripping a pic from google image or something like that…
