Thanks for the heads up Scott! Looks to be a goth/halloween sale to start with… hmm….  I better go buy my GC today with what little money I do have.  Might go to town tomorrow so maybe I can get another prepaid card for the month too.

GRRRRRRRRRRRR.  Almost every time I try to post, it just goes to a blank “Post Reply” page.  I have to do it about 5 times before it works

In addition to the threads not sending notification I get that same problem too! It didn’t happen before those problems last weekend either, but it happens a lot now it seems. If I can’t get it within 2-3 tries I’ve been just giving up. The stress of it all isn’t worth the effort to try and get it to work -_-

I have both.  Each has advantages & disadvantages but together they make a pretty cool arrangement.

Sounds like a cocktail my wallet can’t stomach. Personally I’m not trying to spend money that regularly. If I was able to do that I could see how that would work though.

I’m not all that wealthy since I live on a disability pension but I’ve found that judicious use of each helps in the long run.  My PC membership is monthly which costs more each year than an annual one but is easier on my wallet.  (I wish the Prime membership was the same but Rendo hasn’t done that yet.)  I make back each month more than the cost of the PC membership and have already made back the cost of the Prime membership (which is up for renewal pretty soon, I think) and then some.  At the same time, I make budget arrangements for the catch up part of the monthly sales since the end of them usually overlaps when my pension is deposited.  It’s rare I can manage more than around $150 for those occasions and more often the max is $100 but with judicious selection and a bunch of luck, I can expand my set of toiz to maximum effect.  (Did that make sense?  I’m still working on my 1st liter of coffee.)

my guess is the theme that is on sale right now is creepy environments. Everything thats a buck is where you go when you die wink Or places your likely to die in a horror movie. Useful indeed smile

Certainly did. Once I get around to using some of the content I bought back in march I might be able to justify spending on some new stuff. I kick myself every time I see items i bought during March Madness that I still haven’t used. But at the time i said “I NEED THIS NOW”.

So I wonder if we are going to have to figure out the category sales on our own all month. Maybe they should give the first person who post the discovery a treat for being so helpful smile

Okay so if I was an annual PC member whose account expired this month to renew, I have to pay $69 or $99?  I’ve tried adding it and it came back stating $99.

I asked about this months ago, no-one’s said anything yet. Well, now’s the time for an answer, and my PC renewal is due next month. Anyone know…?

< sigh >

We offer a 30 day grace period of when you expire. You may need to contact Britney in Sales Support to have her work on the charge to make it right. But you don’t have to pay the extra if you are within the 30 days of expiring. 


Great news, Right?

Where I have a possible advantage is that I have an extremely limited number of projects, one an AV project so my daughter and I can be together in the digital world since we can’t be for a while in the real world and the other one I’d rather not discuss in a G-rated environment but is amusing to play with.  The former is far more important because she’s terminally ill and needs Daddy close much as I need to be with her.  That can’t happen yet so this is a substitute, poor as it is.  The latter helps relieve frustration ... kinda sorta.

Anyway, having that sort of limitation allows me to be somewhat more selective in what I get including software and the like.  Fur zample, I finally managed to get Omnifreaker’s big shader pack last month which was a huge single-item investment for me but one with an even better return.  I was even able to squeeze in a couple of Dreamlight’s pointers, one to go with Omnifreaker’s point light shader. 

Setting limits on where I want or need to go with various renders even helps me being selective on freebies at ShareCG, Rendo et al.  Yes!  Someone who doesn’t grab everything that’s free.  Isn’t that illegal or something?  LOL

Grr, apparently Daz doesn’t want me to be a part of the sale… The forum software won’t send me notifications!!! :(  I’m done for the night anyway. I’m sick and tired of trying to track down threads because it won’t send notifications :(

You may need to unsubscribe the subscribe again to the thread. If you don’t click on the links to the threads in your email, it may be taking you out of the notifications.

Hope this works for you.

smile No it makes a lot of sense. I can’t keep up with all the freebies I downloaded in the last few months. Haven’t installed them either. Limiting what you acquire whether it be a freebie or paid is a good idea just because of the time it takes to manage content.

I did try that this morning and it didn’t work :(  I normally only click the notification links in the emails I get rather than browsing the forums and going into threads I’m subscribed to.  This has been going on since the site problems last weekend. I never had the problem before then.
