How can you be fired for having a hobby?  Unless that hobby were child porn or something, I don’t understand how that can be allowed.  What you do on your own time is your own business.

No it isn’t a security risk. You can’t do anything while logged in as that person. You can’t access their account, cart, wishlist, nothing without it making you log in. We have been reassured by daz a few times that all our information is 100% safe.

Except for the information that isn’t safe:  our real names (next to a wishlist count, too).  Not everybody can afford to be outed — if my bosses found out this was one of my hobbies I would get fired as soon as they could manufacture a legitimate-sounding excuse.  I never authorized DAZ to reveal that I’m one of their customers — bad enough that this happened at all, worse that it’s still going on over a week later!  angry

How?  With the aforementioned “legitimate-sounding excuse”.  Why?  “...or something…” — the perception that Poser and DAZStudio are used almost exclusively for making porn is fading, but is still wide-spread enough to be potentially dangerous.


Very dangerous?  Maybe not, but that’s not supposed to be DAZ’s call, is it?  As an unavoidable accident this is barely tolerable, but over a week later we’re well past that.

To “out” you someone would need to know a bit more than your wish list. Something that was actually pertinent like where your located (so they would know which person with that name it was) and who you work for. Nor would your bosses be sure it was in fact the real you unless they asked you point blank or you have a one of a kind name. Odds are that there are actually dozens of “you” out there on the Internet. There are dozens and dozens of women with my name on Facebook alone for example.  And that is only the tip of the me’s out there on the Internet much less in the world. There are several withing 60 miles of me here in Georgia. My last name is not all that common and Lauren is fairly far down the list as far as commonness goes.

For you to be “outed” then who ever has your wishlist and name would need to also know your SN and have read your posts to know you didn’t want your employers to know you had an art hobby, your employers name to contact them, and a willingness to take the time to let them know in a way that they would address. The only other ways for you to be “outed” as an artist would be for the employer to have a DAZ account and see the name and be sure it was you, or they would have to be doing nearly constant searches for your name on the Internet in order to end up on the account page with your name on it and be able to prove that the account was yours somehow. So unless you work for the NSA or something I doubt that your bosses are making the effort keep track of you that well. And if you do work for the NSA they already know.

Your join date on the old forums shows as the same as your join date on this one.

There’s a better chance of being “outed” by Google Images than by DAZ’s site.

Hmmm…maybe I am crazy then lol. I could have swore it was ‘03. I did have another account at one time though that was merged with this one a few years ago. I suppose it’s possible that’s what I am thinking of. Thanks!

[Another issue is the hardware—Oracle is significantly more resource intensive than SQL-Server.  You’d be surprised with how many organizations “cheap out” on the hardware, or simply aren’t aware of the true needs.

...so that leads me to the next question, how “up to the task” is Daz’s hardware with regards to the more “robust” (compared to PHPBB) Magento?


Studio4 will run on my old duo core 32 bit notebook with an integrated graphics chipset that doesn’t support the optimal OGL requirement…


...barely.


It’s as slow as molasses in a Siberian winter and really doesn’t like dealing with scenes more complex than a toon character in simple setting.  Yes it “works”, but there’s a reason I still have (and work with) both 3Advanced and ver. 2.3 on that machine.

I recon the people at Smith Micro/Poser must be rolling on the floor in hysterical laughter.


Ummm.  Not quite.  SM has problems of their own, and I doubt seriously that they are even paying attention to DAZ’s problems.  I had posted info about it a little bit back, but it was removed to keep from blowing the forums up.

Yer your right. I guess I over dramatized it a bit too much but I am getting really exasperated with the store issues. And I posted in the wrong forum. Blinded by rage and didn’t check the forum header properly first. oopsies

The Forum is working adequately for me at present, but I really wish someone would get ‘sort by last post’ in there soon.  The more threads there are in the forums, the harder it becomes to grub through all the pages looking for new postings.

I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, and you might not unless you’re familiar with web forum software, but since the start of the new site, if you pay attention to the newest members section at the bottom of the forums, it looks as though the site is suffering from some sort of a registration bot attack, which in the long run could do more harm than good.

This doesn’t really affect us as end users right now, but it might just be one more thing piled on their ‘to-do’ list.

My answer to this, thus far, has been to hit the ‘View New Posts’ link, open everything I want to read in new tabs, then go directly back to the forum home and hit ‘Mark All Posts Read’. That way there’s minimal missing stuff and maximal not having to pick through stuff. It’s not good, but it is a workaround, until they get it fixed.
