Hi all. I don't know if I'd say I'm "ex-MFA," but it is where I came from, and I'm glad to see that there's such an active community here with people I haven't seen in quite a while. It took me long enough to get here, jesus.

For what it's worth, I'm 26/m/PA.

Hey guys, I'm Patrick, 17, from everywhere but live in Texas now. I'll be in Austin in a year for school and after that who knows.
I made an account when I first heard about care-tags, but never went much further than that. Hopefully I'll be able to post more on here as this a very friendly community.
I'm dog_shelter on reddit by the way.

Hey everyone-

M/27/nyc here. From what I've browsed so far I really like it compared to other forums I've seen. Looking forward to it.

Any tips or pointers on rules, posting etiquette, how the forum works, or anything in general would be appreciated. FAQ thread seemed like mostly technical stuff. Cheers!

rep content you like, neg content you don't, there are no hard and strong rules for what makes rep comments good but generally if it is going to contribute to the discussion or should be seen by everyone it deserves it's own post

original content is the best content

How do you respond to people's rep comments because I'm awkward and have just been repping random comments of theirs to respond but sooner or later I'm going to run out of comments to rep

We usually just take a screenshot of the rep bubble, upload to imgur and make a post replying to that. Or just tag their username and directly respond as a new post without quoting the rep comment.

Hey all, I meant to post here when I first joined but better late than never. 23 y/o, I've lurked/posted on mfa for 2+ years and joined pretty much during the same time a bunch of others did around March, and started frequenting sf/c-t instead of mfa just because I wanted a change I guess. I like the positive vibes here and I think the rep/voting system is really well done

High school junior/m/fake canada. I'm a refugee from mfa and styleforum. I was getting pretty sick of them and felt that mfa especially has been going downhill for the last year or so. I've been lurking here for a few months and I just really like how nice everyone is. I can't remember how I first heard about caretags, but its a pretty rad place so I'm glad I checked it out. See ya around.

Hi, I have had an activation email from here sitting in my inbox for like a month. Eventually I, too, was dragged here by dwindles.

I am a graduate student in literature, occasional FFAer, and all around stand-up citizen.

Hi Guys! This place looked super positive looks super positive so I thought I would make an account! (smiling) Hmmm about myself… I’m 18 years old, just graduated from high school, and I’m starting my apprenticeship for heating and cooling on monday! I live in a small city in central Canada. I really enjoy rock climbing, and I am just starting to get into yoga. To say something fashion related my all time favourite collection is Dries Van Notens F/W 2013 collection, closely followed by the Prada collection from that same season (if I could only wear one collection right now this would be it). Looking forward to posting here!

Liam :D

Sup kids. I'm a 20 year old dude from the shitty northeast corner of california that nobody knows is populated. As far as clothing goes, I've settled into a simple uniform of loose-fitting white tees, tapered jeans, and simple sneakers. Currently going to school to get my degree in econ so I can retire early and spend way too much money on basic clothes when I'm older. Also I run a lot so I've got the heroin chic thing going on for me. Looking forward to shooting the shit here with all of my fashunz friends (smiling)

Hey I'm Ed.

M / 19 / Surrey, UK

I'm currently working before going to read Econ @ University. I just got back from travelling halfway around the world; I love travelling. I'm also interested in fashion, music, tech and staying up late at night pretending I'm doing important things when really I'm on page 20 of r/mfa and loosing the will to live after seeing yet another "can you id these xxxx for me please" post.

I just figured out that the rep things also have messages attached (sorry, I do not go here), and I wanted to point out that two people made the same joke about my calling myself a "stand-up citizen":
