superstreams of superstuff authored by super global shopping experts. welcome world citizens to supertalk 6 –the bvlgari of public message boards. over 3000000 posts since 2003. ok... sure a few were bumps... but it's still of lot. over 13 continuous years and we are still clicking.
this should easily be the most technically advanced and stable version of supertalk yet. it's certainly the most functional and finally responsive – which should make the ux super smooth. we are working within the confines of a totally re-engineered software framework so have kept customization to a minimum while attempting to create the cleanest design possible. that said, every upgrade so far has still managed to cause a riot so who knows. no doubt the new font will once again be 'burning the retina' of numerous sufu members eyeballs.
the bigger question is if old school public message boards like supertalk can maintain traction in generation #pinstasnapfacedit.the big advantage is that they revolve around shared interests as opposed to shared everything - so should continue to be the best spaces for topic focussed group discussions. they also have accumulated and searchable history providing encyclopedic amounts of data. it then comes down to relevance and usability – and obviously the continued support of members and sponsors!
anyway here's some screenshots to remind everyone what the previous clunky retro-tech versions that got us to this point looked like.

There may be a few reasons why people do this. I was thinking the most common one would be that people want to shrink their jeans a little bit after they've stretched out... I know that some peeps enjoy the crisp/stiff feeling of a fresh pair of jeans, and you can achieve that by soaking them and letting them dry in the sun. They may also feel like they're not dirty enough to toss them in the wash, especially if they're afraid of losing indigo, which can affect higher contrast fadez (this may be because some brands say "don't wash your jeans in the first six months or they're ruined forever"). He'll, I put my unsanforized jeans into a hot machine wash before their first wear.
I've always just thrown my jeans into the washing machine with detergent if I feel like they're filthy. I don't think soaking without detergent will do anything in terms of cleanliness.
Good riddle lol
