That any major dot.com would roll out this fiasco. I'm sure the QA people must have told them it was about 3 years away from prime time. My patience is growing thin.

    There should be no try..Only do!

    Latest fiasco is attempting to DL a file from downloadable files (this weeks newsletter freebie), two attempts unsuccesful and now an expired link. Very unproffesional..

    I got logged off of the forums while trying to reply to this topic.

    I am surprised that you ask this question at all? This is the most pityful launch of any website I have ever witnessed. It is unfinished and it looks unfinished. Another question: What does work? I can list at least a page of what is not working but nothing comes to mind that is working. It is either completely broken or has intermittend problems.

    For me it is a pain to post anything. When in the forums I am loged in. I type my message and hit Submit. I am asked to log in again. This log in panel looks different from the ususal og in. It looks very much like a test panel that was left behind by mistake.The log in of course doesn't work since I am already loged in. In the process my message gets deleted and the circle starts again.
    Now I found out that Preview Message makes it possible to avoid the log in again problem.

    Do you know how annoying this can be?

    I am still another person. I still get this persons wishlist.
    I can't sort my Order History.
    I can't do any searches for anything.
    I don't dare to purchase anything because DAZ will store my CC info against my will.
    It is difficult to trust a Website in such disarray.
    It is very difficult to get inspired by an Art Contend Provider with a website for the color blind. Where is the Art?
    I was a PC Member for 6 years and I was very loyal. I only bought from DAZ. Well, this has changed drastically.

    Now Previe Post + Submit doesn't work either. There was the stupid panel again telling me I must be loged in to post. I am loged in for crying out loud.

    Is there any truth to the rumor that other 3D content website technicians have been helping re-launch the DAZwebsite? :ohh:

    I want to be a fly on the wall at DAZ staff meetings. :vampire:

    Magento is not a 3d provider but rather the provider of the software. They are the ones who are helping. That sounds like a rumor someone made up out of sheer snarkyness.

    I heard a rumor that cats will sleep with any cat of the opposite sex. That is why I need to get my kittens fixed before they become sexually mature.

    All they did was switch the "e" and the "n" in Magneto to hide their true identities...

    We had 2 females pregnant at the same time, mother and daughter. And the male--the $%^& tomcat from the street behind us. He was the father of the daughter.

    Yes, get Melody fixed ASAP.

    Yup, of the ones they looked at it was the closest to what they needed. Which I am pretty sure they will admit was no where near close to what they really wanted.

    Why do they call that getting them "fixed" anyway?


    You aren't fixing anything.


    You're breaking it!

    No one who has ever had to deal with the smell of cat spray or a female in heat believes that it isn't fixing a known issue.

    Considering the licenses start at $14,420 per server per year, I would have expected some more...

    We had a female cat that would spay everything of mine. Wouldn't go near my wife's stuff. Just mine.

    I have.


    But you're still breaking the animal - not fixing it. They don't call it fixing the cat spray or a female in heat issue, they call it fixing your pet.


    It's grammatically incorrect and must not be tolerated! :coolgrin:

    Are you sure it is Magento? I saw at one point a reference to Expression Engine.

    Our parent company was evaluating Magento at one point, but it was a horrible user experience for CMS for those who need to update it regularly. It does have an ecommerce solution which is supposed to be very strong.

    Sigh, I'm bored. Its 6 am, been up since 3:30 and its the most time I've spent on this disastrous new forum in 6 weeks. Shudder.

    Wha?! DAZ3D not listed on the customer references page yet? Perhaps we could submit a community-led case study ;-)

    I am pretty sure yea. It has been mentioned on the boards a number of times. It is misty because I looked so long ago but I seem to recall different stores that used magento. MTV and something else I recognized but can't recall right now. There just isn't an overall perfect "3d brokerage store solution" out there that they could select. And even had it been the perfect store set up I am willing to bet there would be glitches. I've had very little trouble with the DAZ site myself. Not so true for KOBO, Barns and Noble (where I had most of the problems people have complained about here except the caching issues) and a good double hand full of sites I have visited recently just to get prices on stuff. None of them even have the excuse of a new site.

    Yes, the system is Magento and the forums are ExpressionEngine, which is apparently what Magneto came with.

    Sheezh!!! I'm pretty sure our company could have built them their own system and provided hosting service for about two years of that rate. After that, it would only be hosting and updates. What a total rip off. And this forum? What are they using for storage? Flat text files? Anybody ever heard of ORDER BY reply_date DESC? Apparently every forum I've ever visited besides this one. I can't fathom the incompetence of the installer! And as the topics and post increase, the mess just grows. I would demand my old site and all of my money back. This whole thing is a disaster. Bugs, yes, I would expect bugs on a release of this magnitude. Every bug should be fixed within hours of being reported. If it can't be, the software is bloatware. Poor Daz seems to have been sold a bill of goods that is obviously a bill of bads.

    We're working through the new section 508 accessibility needs for websites at the moment. Wow, what is poor Daz to do? Much of this fiasco isn't even accessible to the non-impaired!

    As for fixing or breaking cats.... well, why do we park in our driveways and drive on the parkways? And around 6 or 7 months for fixing (AKA breaking) a female. I would try for more like 5 to 6 for males if you vet will do it then.

    I agree. It's as if they did it on purpose. I mean they changed the ordering of the new posts okay, why not order by the reply date instead? It boggles the mind.
