    The input is obviously not going anywhere now, but when the directory is being updated, this was designed to save the admins some time.
    Oh, I've never actually used that form.

    Judith actually advised to not use it anymore as it's never actually checked during the past year. She said it's better to just put our requests straight into the thread as it's easier to see.

    LOL! Wow. Not having been around here for a while, I guess I missed that one. That's sad. I dumped a good bunch of excellent data into that thing - apparently to no end.

    Wellllllll, what the heck. It's not like I broke a bottle of something discontinued!

    But wait! It looks like two fragrances I put in there went in. Hmmmmmmm. But I also notified about them in the "missing" thread. Whatever! I appreciate them getting added.

    Anything put in the contribute.php page will be added eventually, there's a slight backlog but I'm working on it. The approval process gives preference to new launches and fragrances from the more popular houses.

    As someone who remembers the Huddler days all too well, I am going to have to steel myself for this one….

    That said, I am on the Badger&Blade Forum daily, and am quite used to the format, so I think it should be a smoother transition this time. One thing that forum has (that I am not sure is their choice, or a “feature” of the format) is posts can only be edited for about an hour after posting before becoming permanent. That is *extremely* annoying, and I hope if it is an option, that BN does not choose to implement it here. Good luck with the transition, Grant!
    Current Top Ten:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Jasmin Antique (Rogue Perfumery)

    3) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie
    3) Giorgio V.I.P. Special Reserve (Giorgio Beverly Hills) - tie

    5) Dia pour Homme vintage edt (Amouage)

    6) Nombre Noir (Shiseido)
    7) Lucifer (Renaissance Fragrances)
    8) Polo vintage (Ralph Lauren)
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy)
    10)Javanese Patchouli (Zegna)

    That's a choice on their part.

    I second (or is it third) the customised reactions.

    Great use of the reactions feature without it descending into lol, wtf and the like.

    That's great Grant, thank you!

    That is a fair concern.. I guess a bit of real life testing will tell!

    Grant,

    Any chance you'll be adding the ability to sort your wardrobe by most-to-least/least-to-most worn?
