Here is the original petition thread:
and within is a quote from DAZ_KEVIN
In addition to offering the ability to mirror commercial posts to Latest News and Announcements for DAZ PA’s, we want to offer another option to help DAZ PA Commercial threads stand out.
We are going to allow DAZ PA’s to Post commercial threads in the Carrara or Bryce Forums if the product is Bryce or Carrara specific. You are not required to, you can still post your commercial thread in the Commons instead, but some have noted that Byce and Carrara users have had trouble finding new Bryce or Carrara product announcements in the Commons.
We are trying this change until the end of this year. At that time we will evaluate how it seems to be going….
I have no idea if DAZ_Kevin is still working here, or if ANYONE still works here. We are holding our breath every month that someone will post another temporary serial number for the beta we’ve been ready to PAY for for a year and a half… SO AWESOME that rules can be followed swiftly by forum mods but there is no one really behind the wheel at DAZ right now… I mean seriously!
It seems Fenric (who is obviously a DAZ PA) was trying to comply by putting a “real” thread in the commercial forum, and a ghost thread here in the Carrara forum.
Since rules are applied arbitrarily here and information is deleted willy-nilly without reason or cause and we have no official Carrara representative at DAZ as far as we can tell since OCTOBER, do we REALLY CARE about your stupid commercial forum rules when they only seem to be here to drain our community of valid information?
This is either a CONSPIRACY OF DUNCES or deliberate SABOTAGE.
