Ok, The forums are like a ghost town. I'm guessing a lot of people are in other forums, question is.. where

    Oh no, we're here. The Commons is where we fester and spread like parasitic demons as we plot our devious deeds for complete global domination. >:)

    It's nice to see someone's paying attention.

    Daz's old forum was one of my favorite sites on the net. If they've managed to turn me off, I'd imagine the lurkers are long gone by now.

    I still check in to see what's going on in the shop though.

    Thanks for all the replies, I figured there was a spot at Rendo but wasn't sure where ;)

    No avatar pics yet, no inline-pic posting yet, no auto-resizing for posted pics yet yet -- I can see why those might not be considered critical features in general, but these are the forums for an art-supply store! And still no sort-topics-by-last-post-time, which makes it difficult to keep up. This isn't a very user-friendly place for 3D enthusiasts to hang out these days. Hope everybody comes back once everything's fixed!

    It's quiet in the forums.

    It's so quiet I can hear the crickets rioting outside DAZ' office in Utah.

    Is every regular poster gone on vacation? :down:

    I'm glad I'm not the only one wondering. WOW... I know DAZ is trying to dig themselves out of the code hole they fell into when all this went live but geez... the forums are DEAD. I even see a couple of vendors putting their stuff up at other stores. Not good. I guess there's not much to do but wait. Complaining doesn't do a lick of good... On a positive note I got most of my Genesis stuff installed and organized. I got more work done on Bruno and a few other things. So not all bad! *chuckles* :P

    Still here *waves*, pretty busy in places, but until the forum thread sort is sorted, its a real problem finding stuff, the new posts and active topics help but its not like the old days ;)

    I know of many users that just do not like the new forums. One contest I loved moved because of the way this has been handled.

    I understand this is a Store. I understand the Store must Work. I do not understand the Forums will not get very much better untill the Store is 100% fixed. If the old site was anything to go by that will never happen. So by that logic we will not get updates to the Forums. It's just sad.

    I'm not here... just a figment of your imagination.
    Really, though it's no fun anymore. The site is more of a PITA (Pain In The..., not a pita bread) to use... I can't find posts I've made and I keep getting notices about posts I don't care about... I've lost my banner, nobody has any avatars and even though there is a workaround to avoid having my corneas burned out by the new alien abduction theme/look I find that an annoying compromise... I ditched my PC club membership because the whole thing is frelled, I hate looking through the store for stuff now. I will admit there are a handful of new things that show promise and one new feature that I actually like ( "search the forum"... actually works if you remember the thread's title).
    Other than that, it is very disappointing to visit here and I know this will go on for quite some time, months probably... I have been spending my spare time making some new freebies (actually, mostly finishing old ones) and checking up on whats going on at Renderosity... I don't post there much though...
    It really is quite a bit of a bummer when I stop by here and still see nothing but more complaints/problems and nothing really changed.

    It feels like someone burned down the old clubhouse and built a dysfunctional Apple store in its place.

    Actually image resizing does now seem to be working, at least for width.


    While the forums are quieter, I think the drop in activity is not as much as to make them dead. There are certainly plenty of threads getting posted to for the forum team to review.

    Its just not the same anymore. First off due to the numerous issues with pc memberships, store searches, store glitches (pricing, no accessories link), itemized order history, pc changes, just to name a few, people just are not happy so they are not even bothering as much anymore. I know im not. Its just not the "Happy Place" it once was.

    I think a friendly USEFULL Forum would really be a BOON for DAZ at this time. Sure People would still grumble about the issues with the store and the Plat Club, but If the Forums were 100% at least we could Post Artwork and FLAG it properly, and use the Forums the way we all really enjoyed using them in the days gone bye.

    Just My two cents.

    Agreed, esp on the site colors. I do have a plugin installed but there are aspects of the color switching that changes other aspects that make it not so good. Like this input box, it's a really light gray on a off white background. I can barely see what I'm typing! :blank:

    Yeah, the whole site "upgrade" is a great practice of bad design. I dislike it more than Lion.

    I know what you mean - Color That Site and I definitely have a different view on how to do things LOL. I just discovered an extension for Firefox called You Tube Light Switch. It's so cool! You don't have to do a thing, the page is dark, the print is light, and it's so easy on the eyes! WHY can't we have something like that?

    Daz has always said it's a community driven enterprise....unfortunately, it seems that most of the community has driven elsewhere O.o....*time to throw myself off the couch, drum my little heels, and have a hamster hissy fit, it's been about an hour since my last one*.... :)

    I didn't mean for this to become another bash forum, I just was looking for community. After all, that is what holds together any group. We all have become used to DAZ being the center of a community we cherish so we suffer when the community here suffers. I know it is hard on the PA's, on the DAZ employees who are working hard to try to sort this out, on the community here... In the end, it is about community or it is nothing. I send out warm wishes to everyone, we will get through this together hopefully, one way or another. From one artist to a community of others, let us try to use this to create.

    Was trying to post link to song by our very own Miss Kay, but couldn't post the link to play the specific song, just the page the song was on...

    "Welcome in my World." I'm not sure of all the words but it sounds nice ;)

    I'm sort of avoiding the Commons until it gets properly reordered. Well...actually I do frequently visit the restarted Black Is Beautiful thread but I find that by searching for the word "Africa" as opposed to going to the Commons itself. I have entered some contests here and there.

    My things is that while I can more than understand the problems with the store and I sympathize, I don't get how the forum managed to break so badly. You'd think there would be a few generic/standard options that could easily be swapped in and out without hassle. Worst case scenario, splitting the forum and store software into separate parts. Oh well, guess I'll keep rendering in the meantime.
