At least Daz finds time to play around with eye candy instead fixing all that annoying bugs and missing features first..

My thoughts exactly.

Yes, but it’s a visual medium.  I know I’m relatively new here, but isn’t this why DAZ accepts products for testing based on their promos?  People will complain about bugs but spend money at a site that looks great where they’ll take functionality for granted and spend nothing at a site that looks meh (same as they will with products).

What do you think?

Since you asked… I think the ladies outfits look a bit- breezy. I prefer less NSFW art to advertise a store.

I don’t really care about theoretical SFW content really, since I never understand that argument with this hobby anyway. BUT in this case I actually agree due to the content being sold. Stonemason should not need the ladies to sell the environments and I was actually going to make that statement earlier today. Not a Sci-fi person but I got some stone mason foresty stuff that I really dig. Do actually have one of the older urban sets too. I purchased based on the quality of the environments and the reputation of Stonemason. Also the forums talk nothing but good of this vendor.

But then I thought for a minute. Showing off a nice rear or two does sell more to people in general. A lot of people don’t come to the store SOLD on stonemason. Even those who are may be more likely to spend $$ if the advertising gets them in a spending mood.  If they did an A/B test, Group A who is shown no ladies would spend less than the B group who was shown the ladies. That is how things works. So can’t fault them for it really.

Even though for me it wouldn’t work in this scenario. I may like a nice booty, but i don’t buy cars based on what I see in the lowrider magazines.

You both understand that coding a web page is handled by different people than the ones who are Coding for the store and all the bells whistles and such. Much different work with much different code.

I don’t mind it - but it does break from the aesthetic of the rest of the store. Are there plans to do this with all store pages, all PAs, just some, or just Stonemason?

Even if true, this means what?  To me it means… Making the store look pretty takes precedence over making the store fully functional.

Not necessarily. They are different skill sets. The folks that make things pretty aren’t usually skilled in engineering. You always need a few art types working to keep banners and emails coming out. They also tend to handle landing pages like the one we are discussing here.

Very well articulated.

For me, the only reason I go to stonemason’s store to buy his fantastic buildings….He is truly gifted at making them

Doesn’t seem to render correctly in WebKit (Crome/Safari), otherwise, great idea.

Well Kevin since DAZ3D is all about Art I would say it is prefect (for me) I find it a nice balance and apart from the halved sized images dotted through IE9 has no problem displaying the page/s. Yeah I like it. Hope to see more in the future.

The div containing the “4” images has a width locked to 960px, if you make it 1000px will show all four images on the same row.
I think IE ignores the width and makes it wider to fit elements (which is not how the standard is written).

Hard refresh helped, but on several items the pictures show much smaller than they should…

hi guys,I’m working on fixing the smaller images.they came about when the new store called on the main image instead of the original thumbnails,and the main image in several of my sets was in landscape format ,which didn’t translate well.


also working on a new bio as that one is around 6 years old and not up to date.

thanks
Stefan
PS:not too keen on the skimpy dressed ladies either,I tend to cloth my figures in head to toe outfits smile..but i do love the black

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

All working in Opera now.

Only issues I see are a couple of squished promos, which Stefan says he’s working on, and only two items at 30% off when I read the email as applying to Stonemason’s entire store.
