If you ask me, the worst thing is not what has happened to DAZ and how they’ve handled it, but the negative way many people have reacted to it. If you can’t deal with a thing like this in a constructive way, I wonder how you can handle real life…

 

Totally Zen.  This.  Too true.  100% agree.

So much angst, anger, and negativity for what is, for most folks, a hobby.

Hmmm
People are upset because the site that used to be easy to use and the forums that were easy and fun to use are now both steaming piles of rubbish.
Let’s see, what’s the best way to get them to believe everything is fine? I know, let’s insult them.
That’ll do it.

Speaking in general (Nothing personally intended) ... I totally agree with that statement! Seriously, it’s not that big a deal. Things change. While some changes are less desirable than others, we all just move on. Such as life. smile

I don’t find the forums or the store hard to use now that they’ve been worked on, and I’d hardly call them steaming piles of rubbish.

That statement didn’t come from DAZ staff, it came from a fellow member who has every right to disagree with you. Most people are not finding things *that* bad around here.

Life is loaded with annoyances, just keep on truckin’. Useability was nil at first. There’s working email notifications & links, now. Full forum sorting. I haven’t been logged out (except the store) for months. Ok, the user search still breaks on “multiple replies found - search this thread”, maybe some stuff I haven’t used, I dunno. But it ain’t too shabby, now.

[This paragraph is broad strokes, two years of threads on everything-Daz, no particulars, no personalities] I’m a curmudgeon, in real life. But I come off sounding like a cheerleader, because I don’t see the grief, every time Daz twitches in its sleep. I don’t want to sound like a cheerleader, that’s a misrepresentation. To me, some of this drama (no offense, curmudgeon speaking), even about things I didn’t even notice (and I’m a curmudgeon, did I mention?), seems a little over the top. I react similarly to angst movies, I’m hollering at the TV… uh… things which would be undiplomatic in print, heh. I’m a pragmatic curmudgeon. I’ve read a lot of stuff (in 2 years) that makes me go “So??”. To me, the Daz experience (probably TM somewhere, forgotton, in an old-timey file cabinet) amounts to “That’s cool.” “That sucks.”. Does it have to be campaign season every year? I hang here to get away from that. (I should just ignore these threads, it’s not good for my ticker… officially).


Just need a little frontier spirit.

And for a meaningless, go-take-my-nap free-association… “What?! That wasn’t it?”

The new forum is like a camping trip, where the cushy grounds were closed, and you had to set up after dark by nearly-hopeless lantern light. But the rocks are out from under the tents, they’re anchored right, so they wouldn’t blow over *sigh* again. The unpatchably-leaking air mattresses are replaced, the mosquito net tent is patched, and the bear-proof locker is chained to the ground, now, so you don’t have to hoist everything into the trees (but you know that stupid dog is going to get himself killed if a bear does come around). So just partake of refreshment, kick back, tune out the roar of the interstate down the hill, chat idlely, and wait for the train’s horn to echo in the coolest way, at 2:03.

I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree Sultan.
I used to be able to navigate the store and find nearly everything. Now, I can’t find anything.
The Itemized order history is nearly worthless.
The forums don’t bump threads to the top, so that makes them hard to use.


Glad it all works for you, though.

I didn’t say they shouldn’t disagree with me. I was simply stating that insulting people wasn’t going to get them to say the site is a marvel of useability.


I guess all the old timers saying “goodbye” isn’t a big enough clue that things really ARE that bad.

If the threads don’t move to the top when new posts are applied, that makes it VERY difficult to follow what’s going on.
I used to go to a forum and look at the top threads and know EXACTLY what was going on.
Can’t do that anymore.


I don’t have all day to sift through tons of pages.

I think what Cho meant is that has been fixed for a while…probably close to a month.

No offense, tsarist, but perhaps if you could take another gander.

I popped a champagne cork when order sort was restored. I know, because I had to pay for a new bottle, and I didn’t finish the first, and now it’s flat. smirk

Holy crap.
I had been so used to it being screwed up, I stopped even looking at it.

 

I’m only in here at most a couple days a week since the new site launched.

lol…I can understand, my forum viewing habits have changed and I use view new posts mostly. I wouldn’t have noticed except someone started a thread to celebrate IIRC.
