Hi there,

DAZ has opened new forums. OK.

But it seams that all the old forums and all the old discussions are just gone!

Today I tried to find some DAZ related information via Google. One of the best sources where the DAZ forums and so it seamed this time also since I got plenty of hits in DAZ forums. But they where all in the old forums discussions—so what I got at Google where just shadows of the past. When I clicked I got just some cryptic shit that DAZ displays there instead!


So, I am not current what was discussed in behalf of that—but   “ARE YOU KIDDING???”

If the threads are not restored, than the whole community has lost plenty, plenty of information that helped me many times and also others I think.

When I also see, how <Irony on>good<Irony off> the DAZ documentation is, than I can also say, that if these old threads are not restored somehow wonderously soon, the whole DAZ software looses much of its value, since it will be impossible to use it!

I am really pissed!

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING DAZ???—- SHOOTING AND LOOTING THE SHOP SYSTEM (WHICH IS STILL FAR OF BEING USABLE, TODAY I LOST MUCH TIME BECAUSE OF THE CORRUPTED SHOPPING CART!) AND IN THE SAME TIME ALSO THE FORUMS!!

ARE YOU REALLY WANTING TO MAKE SUICIDE? How can anybody in one stroke kill off such once good thing???

(Sorry about the upper case—- I am just so pissed!)

if you find something that links from Google search…just change the beginning to what it says above “/forumarchive.daz3d.com/”

Thanks!

That helps. But I still can’t imagine, how anybody could do some thing like that. To have the old threads on an archive system is a remedy, but why not forward the old links to the new system instead of displaying shit like that:

{lang:welcome}
{lang
:memberlist} 

No, this is would be no rocket-science. I know many websites that managed such changes and installing such forwarding mechanics just without troubles. It is plain standard web-technology—- Ok, you must be a professional to do it, though.

LoL, there is http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewannounce/82_4/ called “FAQ for the new DAZ 3D Forums:”

I guess called “FAQ for the new and old DAZ 3D Forums:” may help

How can they encourage people to read it? Maybe that will solve some of the problem with people yelling.  Or maybe they can do some kind of modification that prevents people from yelling in the forums?

Maybe by just putting all forums into the archive—read only.


Or (just a guess) stopping to shoot them self and their customers into the foot.

There is nothing ‘typical’ about Daz’s site update.  If anything, at least you can give them that.

It’s been pretty much a rollercoaster ride through jagged cliffs.

Lock the forums until the member READS the announcements.  Maybe make everyone take a quiz before unlocking the forums.  Until the base questions can be answered correctly, no access.  (It wouldn’t bother me.  I’ve actually read the TOS and Announcements.)  People won’t do what they are supposed to until forced.  Until then they’ll skimp on the effort and get someone else to do it for them.  Basic internetter bahaviour.

Wow that comes across as arrogant and self righteous, how would these forums survive without you.

You might be surprised to find you are not the only one who reads things.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all.  And they’d survive just fine, thank you.

You mean there’s two of us who read things?  Pleased to meet you!
(Okay, I DO do quite a bit of reading, but the Fora TOS?  Skim for changes.  Oh, no “nudity” taggability now.  Huh.)
