  1. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    to be fair - the software is the best we've ever had - design isn't their speciality - and IMHO i think this is the only forum software good enough to be able to keep pace with facebook google apple etc. as they entirely vacuum up what's left of the internetz. intriguingly, the one thing those companies have never been able to successfully do is reproduce forum software. anyway... rambling a bit off topic. might move these to a new thread re: supertalk update once it's all done.
  2. Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    FYI the updated rep is part of the new software update from the forum software we've used since 2011... the previous update we did earlier in the year was a bigger one - from 3.4 --> 4.0. this current one just installed is 4.2.5 [thats 25 incremental updates but this latest one has quite a lot of changes]. we have no say what goes in the new software so the best we can do is tweak to make it not look as crappy as the default. most of the time it's improvement to functionality and security stuff. ----- re the harry potter rep wizardry... seems it's definitely part of a move by the software devs towards more nuanced 'reactions' beyond just + /- [as well as a general move towards UI micro animations] so..this is the default... vomit... so i did a very quick 30 minute redesign of the icons... i think adding an extra degree of nuance to pos and neg is actually a good new option. if i could i'd be adding extra rep power to icons - but that ain't possible. ie. superep = 10 trash - 10. anyway maybe we can make the blue rep neutral ? [its currently +] - sort of like an acknowledgement that you have read a post - maybe icon should be a dog pissing on a tree. as for the new default replacement user tiles - for users without pics - i tried to update these but turns out they are all .png images so i can't even change the font. and they certainly aren't great design.. but still somehow prefer to default eggs and faceless heads. anyway if members just uploaded profile pic we'd not need them.. ?? we also have UTF8 ios icons in this update [coming]... which some people will like and others hate. we've also tried to clean up css a bit. got rid of borders etc. so it's hopefully looking a bit cleaner... [still a bit to fix] but forums are insanely fiddly to customize at the best of times.. and every time there is an update we have to redo much of it all over again. yup //

    01 | superfuture started in 1999. how old were you then? [drg] 23 and still living in London. [evoque] 21 and in an undisclosed location. 02 | how did you first discover sufu? [drg] I have a feeling Elle sent me there when I was on the search for proper denim, some time around 2005. By this point we were living in Lexington, KY, which at that time was quite the dead zone when it came to things like selvedge, tier 0, or anything else that might get the nerd or otaku a-twitching. [evoque] It was so long ago that I can't accurately remember. 03 | there are plenty of shopping experts on supertalk. what's your specialty? are you a pro? [drg] I've been around a while at this point, and you pick some stuff up. Some time early on in the retail trenches with Diesel in the mid-90s taught me a lot about denim. (Protip: wash your jeans, it adds patina and no one likes the smelly kid!) I used to rock a lot of Stüssy, Futura Labs and Maharishi, although for the past few years its been a near-constant diet of Veilance and Acronym. [evoque] By necessity, I've had to be a specialist in women's techwear and sneakers, but I also have a fondness for designer handbags and shoes, as well as for architecturally interesting womenswear by designers like Sharon Wauchob, Maria Pinto, and of course Rei Kawakubo and Junya Watanabe. 04 | reputation is everything in an online community. how's yours going? do you ever get neg repped? [drg] Not sure; too old to care these days. [evoque] Can't let the haters get you down, right? 05 | online forums are all about the members, threads and posts. who and what keeps you addicted? [drg] The Acronym and Veilance threads, mostly. [evoque] WAYWT, the bag thread, and the Acronym and Veilance threads, naturally. 06 | supertalkers are based all over the planet. have you met any IRL? [drg] A couple here and there. [evoque] Reader, I married him. 07 | are you fast and furious / slow chilled and controlled / or bitter and twisted? [drg] Depends on the time of day. [evoque] I contain multitudes. 08 | the internet is full of crap. with over 3.2 million posts since 2003 has supertalk been a credible contributor or a major culprit? [drg] On the one hand there's plenty of knowledge out there now as a result. On the other, kids use words like "jawns" which I don't even understand. So perhaps, as someone once said with regards to the US experiment with democracy, "it's too soon to tell." [evoque] As a time capsule into its particular intersection of fashion and culture, supertalk's definitely going to be a treasure trove for future Internet historians. 09 | if supertalk got accidentally deleted would you be devastated or relieved? [drg] I'd be upset. [evoque] Though there are more outlets focused on women's techwear and sneakers nowadays, I'd still be devastated to lose a familiar hangout. 10 | if you could nominate another superstar who would it be?
