All the mod’s need to know is that BBS’s is still a NEW User in his own eye’s. So When he post’s a question it is a new user question. It is not his fault all us people are here waiting to jump on the first question he asks. Okay, we get bored waiting on the next question and just go off into left field. That’s not his fault eather. At least he asks all his questions in one thread, most of the time.

I’m a little PO’ed the dude does not show up as much as he did before. I got used to the new forums pretty darn fast, Just look at my post count.

EDIT: I need to break 250 (260?) pretty darn fast so I can get my second green bar. tongue laugh

This thread is probably more suited to the Commons so Richard made the right decision, but Pam probably reinstated it to the newbie area because she knows this was my home, and I appreciate that, I would certainly not have paid it much attention if it stayed in Commons.  Thanks to both of you, I understand both reasonings, please don’t fight!


I would like the thread deleted to be honest, it seems I’m just whining in it and I’m not sure it’s necessary any more, my point is made, people know my thoughts.  If I don’t like the forums, I should just either get used to them or leave them altogether.


@Jeff:  Part of the reason I lived in the newbie area is so that I could keep up with answers.  Commons moved too quick for me to keep up with and often turned into arguments.  BUT the main reason I prefer to use the new area is because the questions I ask can help the genuinely new people, and help them better if they are answered mostly by either experts that post in the new area (many thanks to those people) and other new people that say “Well in my experience…” because that can spark a whole new look to the question.  I’m not a new user, I’ve been using DS, Poser and Carrara for the best part of a year now and I can find my way around quite a lot of it, but with something this complex we are all always learning. 


I am rethinking my strategy when it comes to 3D, and I think I would like to start a new thread with a more positive outlook and see how it goes.  I would appreciate it if people would just leave this particular thread alone to fade into the nethers if it can’t be deleted, but mods, if you can and will delete this thread, I would be in your debt.

Well it started with BBS but I think a thread like this in the New User section gives it that bit of personal touch as well as a place for new folks to ask random questions that would not really warrant a thread all on it’s own.

As for Barry not posting, I guess people lose interest and might find something else to get hooked on for a while (like WoW!). They may or may not return eventually but there’s plenty of other people who needs a helping hand and we’re all friends here so you won’t be lonely Jeff. cheese

To make things fair though I think we should perhaps try to discuss some DS related stuff inbetween so that we fit more into this section of the forum. After all, it started off as a “How to” thread so let’s keep it on that track as we go along. Or try at least. LOL

Well it doesn’t have to be DS related, it could be Bryce related, or even Poser related,................  and we would even accept Hex and cowrrara at a pinch cool smirk

And I suppose then some wag will suggest I try to teach you how to use boolean operations in Bryce, to make things like this. rolleyes

I think maybe an explanation of Boolean tecniques really needs a simpler thing than that to start with, that particular one is quite involved.

Maybe I will show you how I built one of my houses, they are a bit easier, only made from primitives.

THe bridge has terrains in it, and I drew the map for the terrains in PS. just to make it more complimacated.

Totally misread this.  I thought you said “to make rhinos like this”—-looked at image and thought that is one strange rhino.  Looks like I would make a rhino.  Then I realized I need to learn how to read words.

I’ve heard of boolean searches.  Is boolean operations where you cut out the area for the arches?

That’s because we’re hard to control, Harry.  Some days Chohole must feel like she’s babysitting a barrel of monkeys.  But..in the morning, in the evening, ain’t we got fun!
