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