I closed my eyes and when I opened them again, the world had become totally white..
Where am I now? Where are the familiar avatars? Images? YouTube videos? How longs has it been like this? Feel like being in a hospital.. clean clean.. all desinfected and white..
Is it supposed to be like this from now on..?
It is so un-Carrara-ish that it can be..
Hi there 3dage, you have totally 4 posts - wow - you are ahead of me!!!
I guess I missed the announcement explaining all of this!
Where are all the tutorial threads, tips and tricks and the hundreds of posts that people took many hours preparing examples and demonstrating techniques.
Is all of that lost, just tossed away?
If so - that sux! I can’t see any reason why the previous posts were not converted into the new system.
Am I the only one PO’d?
Not being mean or nasty - just very disappointed if all that is lost.
They’re free forums provided by a company, and the company decided to change them to update them (not all features are available yet) and to make them easier to manage, although they really didn’t need a reason, since they own them?
The old forum, indeed the whole site, was falling apart, and the web guys were spending mega hours holding it all together with string and duct tape.
Is that a good reason ?
Hi, this is not what I mean. A new forums is perfectly understandable. What is hard for me to capish is why the new forum is so different from all other forums out there, especially multimedia forums, like this one is. Where are the avatars, the ability to link in / post images, YouTube videos? This only means plain HTML, embedded in the message, and does not put any strain on your forum machine, whatsoever. Because embedded HTML is is a communication between the site linked in and the client - only.
As it is now, it is stripped down do a bare bone minimum which makes it sterile.
Well, maybe the features I wish for are in the works..
Well, I am glad that I popped in here before ranting and raving about how retarded DAZ was for wiping out the old forum….. Afterall, it is the closest thing to a manual we have for now. At least it is archived, but I didn’t find out before going through my bookmark folder for carrara forums and deleting all the ones that didn’t work :(
I probably could have saved them by going through and appending the new forum address. Oh well.
It doesn’t appear to be for graphics. In fact, it looks like something out of the 1980s Compuserve days.
I’ve kind of lost interest anyway, this forum format may just push me a bit faster towards the exit.
Oh yeah, I keep getting logged out everytime I leave.
prob not always going to relog in so miss new posts.
and new posts not comprehensive, replys to my handfull of posts were not included, I had to take the time to find those and see what replies given
so asking for help on something likely to result in an answer being missed.
it might at least stop me from posting too many other topics so I can search my posts tovia my profile to find answers to queries more easily
sofar Carrara discussion one page so not hard but will get harder, no hope of finding replies in other forum threads!
