Re: Quiet?

Maybe it's time we start a Facebook group. The younger crowd tends to congregate there. The reason Facebook is so significant is that interests ("likes" in the argot of Facebook) are shared with all friends and family also on Facebook. Thus interests can become viral far more easily, and garner a l...

Skirts that look like sarongs.

Hey guys ... I'm hoping for some product recommendations from the esteemed members here :D I'm looking for a regular (woman's) skirt, that looks like a reasonably masculine sarong. What I mean is that, whilst I have had no problem finding a sarong that, due to its pattern and finishing, is not 'too ...

Re: Proposal for an FAQ -- Round 1

B.1. How does SkirtCafe differ from Kilt-specific sites such as "X Marks The Scot" or kiltmen.com? Those sites cater to men who do not wish to consider non-kilted unbifurcated garments, and you may be happy with them if you are only interested in kilts. This is not entirely accurate. Kiltmen.com is...

Re: Do Humans Still Join Discussion Forums

I come online here up to 3 times a day just to see what's going on, but hardly post as you can only talk (post) so much about a kilt/skirt. I go out in my kilt these days and nobody takes any notice, I don't think I have been excepted, but more to the point people don't care anymore what your weari...

Re: Do Humans Still Join Discussion Forums

I've noticed this myself. Where ARE all the skirt wearers on the Internet? There used to be several active skirt forums, each with a large and active memberships. Lot's of meet ups, photos, new members, experience reports. The major forums were SkirtCafe (Tom's Cafe), IMFF and The Atrium. IMFF went ...

Re: Sending signals via forum moderation.

I’d like to thank Bob and Carl for their hard work. We should not forget that SkirtCafe is essentially the last man standing in terms of (English language) skirt forums for men, save for the kilt-only xmarks. Many other forums have fallen by the wayside, or have negligible volume. So clearly Bob, Ca...

Sending signals via forum moderation.

Just to be clear, before I start, this is not a complaint, but simply an observation. I noticed two acts of moderating here today. First, a thread discussing how kilt rental companies handle the situation of renters wanting to wear their hire kilts regimental (no underwear) was closed. Second, a thr...

Cessna152towser

Hi folks, For those of you who don't visit XMarks, you might like to know the Cessna152Towser was robbed in Spain. He was not hurt, but was left without funds. A few XMarkers organised an emergency international funds transfer for him. http://www.xmarksthescot.com/forum/kilt_plundered-t44769/index.h...

Re: Is SkirtCafe Going "Femme"?

Bob and Carl have mentioned a lot about the desire to discuss the total aesthetics of an outfit. I agree, in principle. In practice we struggle to do that at SkirtCafe. The problem, as I see it, might be summed up with the classic freedom of speech quote "The right to be heard does not automatically...

Re: Is SkirtCafe Going "Femme"?

I think: The problem lies not with the forum but with your friends who cannot read what is written and are apparently very biased. Hello Peter, I apologise but I cannot entirely understand what you are trying to say in most of your post, but will respond on this part (above) as it seems you might h...

Re: Is SkirtCafe Going "Femme"?

I haven't decided how to vote yet, but offer some opinions. I have thought, from my personal perspective, as to what is 'too femme' for me. Would I ask friends/family to visit SkirtCafe? : When asked about my kilt wearing, I have pointed friends/family towards XMarksTheScot, but I'd not point them t...

My impression is that the traffic at all the various freestyle sites has been declining over the last 4 years or so. I mean SkirtCafe, Tom's Cafe (before it), Atrium, IMFF. Kiltmen (the kilt and MUG orientated site) has also declined. Geraden's tights blog started during this period, and so it exper...

Thank you Nigel

I'm very grateful for the contribution that Nigel made by running IMFF. It was a site I used to read daily, along with Tom's Cafe and the Atrium. Thank you Nigel.

Well said Skip. Three cheers for Bob and Carl (am I missing any other moderators?).
