daz3d.com/free was a sub domain of the old site, and as yet hasn’t been archived alongside the forums.


We can only hope that it will reappear at some time.

Used to be this link…
http://free.daz3d.com/free_weekly/archive_list.php

Included the likes of a briefcase of money, a fan, some water craft, bryce textures/objects etc. as I recall. As a ‘New Member’ (according to DAZ - another bug?) since 2003 I’ve seen some interesting and useful items appear in the original free section. Would be good to have it back!

“New Member” means that you are new to posting on this new forum. Once you have posted more than 25 times, ie on your 26th post, you will become a “Member”. Once you have accumulated more than 250 posts you become an “Active Member”.  So no it is not a bug, rather a quirky feature of this new forum software.

In the MO forum there is even a long running thread all about, or designed to help, people collect the little green boxes that appear under your user name as the status changes.  http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/342/. It has turend into just a general chat thread..

They did mention [previous forum] that said archive would be closed.

Yes and as we have said before, we are hoping that we can persuade them to bring it back, because all the PA 24 days of Christmas giveways are held on the sub domain as well.

That would be nice. The PAs gave us some very nice gifts.

What the hell happened to the free.daz3d.com website?  That was a great resource for free older content, and it’s now gone.  Does any have a mirror for that site or has it been moved?

Add me to the list of people who want free.daz3d.com to return.  I wish there had been some notification that it was going to disappear.  Plus, that whole repository couldn’t be more than a few gigabytes in size.  Surely it could have been migrated to the new website.

Moved to the Commons because it is a query and not an offer of a freebie.

It was stated in the old forum that the freebie archive would disappear, and they weren’t certain if it would be brought back on this new site.

We are hoping that it will be, but you were also advised to download anything you felt you may need from the site, just in case.

I wasn’t advised of anything about this.  No notice of it was placed in the newsletters/emails I received from DAZ.

Many if not most customers don’t read these forums or do so very infrequently.
