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.

Yes, I suppose you're right @shifty
I live in Vancouver where, according to the CBC, 90% of the population owns an Arcteryx jacket of some kind.
My local Arcteryx store has a (small) wall dedicated to Veilance garments. I can see how many a dad that just likes Arcteryx would buy their pants from that wall
Edit: who cares about that dad, doesn't change the pieces.
Veilance is the kind of brand that isn't daunting in a fashion sense and can appeal to the average person as just nice minimal design, but people who are in the know can appreciate it for everything else that the brand has to offer as far as aesthetics and detailing. I've seen more veilance on uncool dads wearing square toed loafers than I've seen elsewhere, and while thats not the same audience that veilance has really found a niche with (like people here), I don't feel like it takes away anything from it.
I don't think that everyone who wears Veilance is on this forum. I have been wearing Veilance for three years and came across it from via actual word of mouth. I only stumbled across this forum a couple of months ago, more so through an interest in Acronym.
