    To all members:

    For the upcoming season, there will be a S/S 2007 campaign thread which will be used for general discussion of and speculation about the campaigns only. In this thread, the first post will contain a list of the unofficial castings for the campaigns. However, when the images for the campaigns start coming in, threads for these different campaigns should be started. When posting images which belong to older campaigns which don't have their own threads, the images should be sorted into the archive threads (see below).

    When starting a new thread on a campaign, please follow these rules for the thread title:

    1. The name of the brand goes first, e.g. "Hugo Boss". If there are sub-brands of a particular brand such as "Hugo Boss Black" and "Hugo Boss Orange" these all go into the same "Hugo Boss" thread.

    2. The season of the campaign goes second.

    ex. S/S 2007

    3. The final name for seasonal campaign threads should always be of the form "The Dior S/S 2007 campaign". The resort campaigns should be on the form "The Chanel Resort 2007 campaign".

    4. For posting images, requests or opinions about past campaigns which don't have their separate threads, the brand archive thread should be used.

    ex. "Chanel - the campaign archive"

    5. The photographer's name should be mentioned in the initial post of the thread and whenever possible, the main createurs behind the campaign (Art Director, stylists etc) should be mentioned.

    6. Always properly credit images. Other tFS threads can not be used as image sources. If you get an image from another thread, make sure you note where the image is credited, and use that credit when reposting.

    Thank you for adhering to these rules. By doing so, finding a campaign through the search function will become much easier. Any titles that do not match the above will be changed by the moderators.

    I have a question: what about smaller campaigns? There will be hundreds of threads if the will one for every campaign, or am I overlooking something.

    I think those should just be discussed in the S/S 2007 thread. The separate campaign threads are mostly meant for the bigger campaigns or campaigns which lead to a lot of discussion. The main reason for doing this new take on the S/S campaigns is to promote diversified and in-depth discussions. The F/W 2006 thread is so long and moves so fast the there is not so much discussion about the actual content of the campaigns.

    tFSers - the ads mods have put together the vintage ads archive threads, please post all the ads from the 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s in these threads :flower:

    Since we are aiming to have this as a searchable archive, it is important to follow a certain simple posting format which is described in the first post of any of the vintage threads:

    The 1920s - ALL ads

    The 1930s - ALL ads

    The 1940s - ALL ads

    The 1950s - Fragrance and Beauty

    The 1950s - Fashion and Accessories

    The 1960s - Fragrance and Beauty

    The 1960s - Fashion and Accessories

    The 1970s - Fragrance and Beauty

    The 1970s - Fashion and Accessories

    The 1980s - Fragrance and Beauty

    The 1980s - Fashion and Accessories

    If you do not know the year/decade and you're curious about it - you can ask other tFSers in What year was this ad published? thread. :flower:

    In order to improve the quality of the threads in this forum and focus further on the fashion and art aspects of the advertisements/magazines, the moderator team will start enforcing empty post removal.

    While the model/celeb taking part in the images are important, it must not be the main focus in these threads.

    Examples of what is going to be removed:

    1. Sigrid
    2. Sigrid suits this campaign so well.
    3. Sigrid's hair looks beautiful in this campaign.

    Examples of what is not going to be removed:

    4. Her hair looks gorgeous - I wonder what hair stylist they used?
    5. Sigrid's hair looks gorgeous - what hair stylist did they use?

    Please keep in mind that the focus of the ad/mag forums is the fashion, art, photography and business of the work presented there.
