All threads in public areas of the old forums should still be accessible, though it takes a fiddle with urls to see images.

Richard,
Please direct your attention to the forumarchive web site.
Try to load a few pages.
Count how many seconds it takes to load each and every page.
You will find that it takes about 23 seconds.

DAZ did something a couple of weeks ago that broke the archive site worse than it was already.
Ever since then, every forumarchive page waits 23 seconds before it begins to load. Clearly the server is waiting for something to time-out before it sends each page.

Even though the archive has other problems, it didn’t have this “delay” problem untill recently.

I keep posting this information every time I see the forumarchive subject come up, but no one with any authority ever acknowledges it.
I think the DAZ web programmers are oblivious to this problem.

Website is a massive step backwards.  I can’t understand why they nuked so many old and helpful threads :(


Assuming you mean the old forum -well if you guys would support the Carrara dedicated website you would see there is a “working” link there to the old Daz forums

http://carraracafe.com/

check it out and adopt the cafe as your first Carrara stop - it will only get better with your support !!

Come on…you can’t be serious…you actually think people are going to take the time and hassle to check out multiple websites for a single piece of software? Ain’t gonna happen. For many reasons. Yeah, a few might, but for the vast majority it’s far too much hassle. Not sure if it’s a DAZ site, but having two websites for one piece of software is a really bad idea.

Yes it is a daz website and I agree two are not good - so why not favour the Cafe !! has a great gallery for showcasing images (something I see people often trying to make a thread about on here)

Yes in many ways would be better if everyone spent more time on that site as would give DAZ an indication of interest in Carrara. And the gallery is really pretty cool to check out. Kudos to all who are there.

I actually like having two sites. The cafe seems a lot more relaxed. People say what they want to say. I haven’t seen any brawls break out over there and my bloody posts don’t get snatched down.


The traffic just isn’t heavy enough yet. I thought the new Daz forums would drive more of us over there, but it doesn’t seem to have worked that way.


I’ll keep visiting the cafe.
