OK. So my membership is suspended and I want to know why.

In the store system you have your membership. To make sure your subscription is not suspended, since you are a PC member, go to My Account > Subscriptions (from the left list) > Edit > Extend > Submit.

This will take care of the problem.

We have seen several issues with this. But this action will take care of the problem for you.

 

Er no all that happens is that the system tries to treat me as a new member and charge me 30 Dollars plus one months subscription..and I don’t see why I should have to do that..as I’m a monthly member already.


And that’s why I did it by phone besides a ticket. Problem solved in a matter of minutes.

Funny thing is. I never had any problems but the normal bugs everyone was getting with the new change over. Until now.

THe newsletter cancellation is something that happens when PC mebership accounts are sorted out. We don’t know why it happens but it does. Just go to your account and reset the newsletter subscription.

As to downloads, sometimes chaning the browser you are using can help.  So if you are using IE, try using Firefox or Chrome to download.

Can we use DL managers now. I’m not going to install stuff i don’t want,  just to get my DL. I’m better off just not buying anything from here till things get fixed.

The best way right now to DL without headaches is to use the free 3D Content Downloader.  (It is not my program btw).

That’s been my solution… I’ve cut WAY back on my purchases since the change over.  You would think they would have hired an extra web master to get this place whipped into shape so they can make sales and keep the natives from getting angry and restless but it seems, while there is progress, it’s slow coming and still pissing folks off.

Sorry your going through all this my friend!  :-(

Is there some progress? It seems to me that it’s getting worse the past couple of weeks instead of better. I have stayed away from here for the most part these last couple of months/ change. But I never had all these problems till now. It was the same things everyone was having. So I just let it go to SNAFU. But today. That’s another story.

I got all my DL’s except one. I tried 2 different browsers, a DL manager that did get all my other DL’s.  The one file just won’t download completely. I have wasted all 5 DL’s for nothing. I will have to see if it can be reset or it’s another call tomorrow.

I got the news letter fixed and I can’t read half of the one I just got.

My day was so much better when I was not here. It use to be the other way around before the big change. I use to say that coming here brightened my day more so than not. I guess those days are gone.

Good to hear from you RAMWolf.

Ok. so I see the smilies are not working either. LOL.


I also see that you have to triple space to get a paragraph. If it worked this time. (rolls eyes).

Hmm,, they work for me fine.  I use Firefox 12 so not sure if that makes a difference.  No, the store is better than it was, if you can believe that!  LOL

As the wise folks say… BREATH!  smile

I did a reset and finally got that last file DL’ed.


Think I will not buy anything again from here for some time. It’s not like there is anything new that we have not seen in some form and don’t already have it in 3 or 4 versions in our runtimes. It is getting stale around here for idea. Same old rehash.


Scrapping up the cash for that Modo upgrade that Luxology surprised us with seems to be the best thing I did this year. That and upgrading my View infinity to 10. LOL


So It’s going to take something special. Really special, to get me to even think about going through what I did today. Let alone buy.


One good thing about all this is I am getting my post count up. Who’s stupid idea was it to use that silly members post count name. I can see it now. Someone asks a question on how to do something and gets two answers.  They decide to take the advise of the yappy forum rat that is “Ultra Member” instead of the New Member that has been around since the beginning of these forums, years ago and can’t figure out why the tinfoil hat, cat pictures and cookies didn’t work.


Catch you all on the flipside.

Yea, making us all start from scratch was kinda lame.  I’m sure there was a way to set the users original post counts but guess they didn’t see it till it was too late or this forum software is either LAME-O or they just haven’t scratched the surface of what it can as of yet.  They mentioned that the store was first priority then the forums… woohoo… eh hem…. rolleyes

I understand your frustrations, but whatever you do, don’t say that most of the clothing content is a rehash of Gen3/Gen4 - you will get your posts deleted and a very nasty note from the forum moderators berating you for your “unreasoned criticism and general negativity”. 

 

At least that is what they sent me after I stated that I was seeing too many reruns of V4 clothing.

 

You are going to have to give the content creators a little time.  DS4 doesn’t have any formal documentation and the vendors appear to be in the learning mode at the moment.  They have to figure out how to make what they have made in the past with DS4 before they can go and create “new, never seen before in the DAZ store” items. 

I am sure that by the time DAZ gets the store and the forums straightened out the content creators will be getting the hang of how to create in DS4.

I’m not sure if this helps anyone, but I’d like to offer this information to maybe help someone smile

I sent a ticket about my PC Membership that had the Information “cancelled” behind it allthough I never cancelled it. It wasn’t urgent, because it runs till August 2013 (if I remember right), so I told them to take their time with it… Like usual DAZ Support got to it as fast as possible though (yeah I had to say that, I think they deserve the positive infos here too).

When they got to it, they added a new Membership for 0$ which is ‘suspended’ as the Order they had to place for it is still stated as ‘processing auth’ (I guess that means they’re working on getting it into my account properly). I also can’t go to the members only forum for now, which is - I guess - part of correcting the issue I informed DAZ about. And I’m quite sure that I’ll be able to go to the members forum soon enough again.

So - in conclusion - it seems (to me) that having a ‘suspended Membership’ has something to do with DAZ sorting out the PC Membership Problems that are floating around because of the new system.

I hope this information helps with staying calm and wearing a bowtie… ^^

Check back to this post.

Yep wink

It wasn’t a problem and not a complaint, I just tried to offer that point of view to calm a bit of the steam some people might feel pressuring in their heads because of the suspended status of their orders ... by pointing out that it actually means that their problems are being solved and not that new problems are arising.
As I am not a native english speaker this might not have been understandable, sorry smile

Anyhow… thank you for your continued patience and help here.

“Glad” to see I’m not the only one with “PC membership suspended” problems… rolleyes

And no, Britney’s solution didn’t fix the problems I have: trying to activate my membership only gives me the option to purchase an additional month. Which I’ve already done last time I’ve had problems with the membership, and that added an additional subscription listed as “active” and starting on 6/21, which doesn’t work either. So no, I’m not doing that again, thanks.

And yes, I’ve opened a ticket about it last week. I know support has a huge backlog of requests to handle, and I will give them the time to work on the subject, but frankly I’m starting to get really, really tired about things not working :(
