The state of the forums

So any clue on when things will be working as they should?

Yes I could have posted to the 'rant' thread or any number of threads but since the forum still sorts on original thread creation date not last post I can't be bothered to find it.

I love Bryce but not enough to put up with the incredibly low quality of forum software that was supposedly tested and still delivered in this state.

    The forums will be worked on once the store is running smoothly.

    Fair enough.

    So then I guess the question for now is:

    What is the prognosis to get the store running as it used to?

    Since it is whatever it turns out to be. I take this to mean that no one has a clue.

    So then the logical follow up how much longer must we endure this POS before we can get the old software back?

    I miss forums that work. I am grumpy about the current state of things. That month after month rolls by and no one is forth coming with anything approaching actual info is rather telling I think.

    But the forums are essential for the Daz Store success... example the newsletter for the Wicked sale points you here to read up on the details of the offer.. I come here and get a quick headache from the forums and out of the shopping mood. Its been 2 months so its way past time to fix the forums... spend some money and bring in a contractor team

    I have an idea. Since this whole mess is the fault of that other software company, and not Daz, why not sue that other software company for 100 million dollars in damages, then use this money to re-create a properly functioning website and upgrade Bryce to a state-of-the-art 3D app that will dazzle the world?

    A piece of string is 62.12 Bryce Units long.

    Hell I'll settle for just the Bryce Upgrade....so what that I can't have an avatar and I got to hit return twice to make a blank line between paragraphs. :roll:

    Is that Daz string or regular string?

    Well if it's Daz string then whatever you think it will be...double it minimum. :)

    Is it conforming string?
    Got to get me some of that.

    BTW; the mathematical way to work it out, is that a piece of string is exactly twice as a long as half a piece of string.

    That's normal string, Daz string often defies the laws of nature and reality. :)

    Definition of DAZ String:

    The distance from the center to one end is exactly twice the distance from the center to the other end.

    This brings a whole new meaning to ‘String Theory’: a theory that may unite all the fundamental forces in the Universe. When some Strings relate to a respective sub-atomic particle, for example, the Boson particle, you then have the ‘Bosonic String’ theory.


    Given this, and the problems we’re all experiencing with DAZ, the ‘DAZonic String’ theory has arrived :) Unfortunately, however, while the particle String theories are all trying to unite, it appears the DAZonic String theory is doing the opposite ;)

    The length of a piece of string will be settled after the store is running smoothly.

    And don't forget after they get avatars working again in the forum. I'm just a bit more concerned with that then the nature of string :)

    Ah but debating the nature of string does serve to keep people amused while we wait for them to start working on the forums.

    Well now if you really want amusing then we need to discuss the nature of that laser thingie that makes the red dot. :)

    good point. but I don't have a laser pointer, do have a lot of string, and my cats are quite happy chasing string, while we debate it's propertites

    or cat will come up and claw your arm up until you grab the laser pointer. I guess she's letting us know its time to play.

    - What is the meaning of life?

    - Is there really such a thing as Infinity?

    - Are moderators human?

    - Can women really drive?

    - Is it wise to pick your nose using chopsticks?

    - How long is a piece of string?


    These are questions that have puzzled mankind for, well, at lest a few weeks now, and some things may never be answered. But thanks to sheer brain capacity, it is the British that have found the answer to the question ...

    Alan Davis hosts Horizon? Is this a spoof? I remember Horizon from the 70's - when I had a TV - and it used to cover serious scientific topics. This is madness, it's no wonder today's generation of scrotes and wasters, don't learn anything while they are pretending to be sick.

    Are you suggesting the nature of string is not a serious scientific subject? :)

    Scientists are serious about all their work, but not all the work is as serious as the scientists who work on it.

    In cosmology, the existence of Strings is now doubted.

    After disparaging it, turns out the Horizon was moderately entertaining and did in fact come up with a definitive answer at the end.

    Edit: If the numbers are not clear, it reads 319.442 mm - so that's settled.
