At least, I can access the bug tracker (it was down as well a few days ago). That would be “DAZ Web Search”, I reckon.


Clicking on a link opens the page in the same window, there is no “target=blank” in the “a href”-line. I can’t back out from the bugtracker, for example, and have to type the DAZ URL anew and login. Then search for the forum thread and comment I had clicked on the link on the first place.


I would also like to know when the links are stable so I can save them as bookmarks. None of the earlier ones work.

If you have bookmarks to pages in the old forum, then you need to add archive to the link,

So you get a link that reads   http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?p=3269492#3269492

Instead of one that reads   http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=3269492#3269492

And I am not going to apologise for the inconvenience, because we told them, way back in February that they need to keep the old forum archive on it’s original server, and have the new one on a new server, with a redirect.

Thanks! Very helpful. I thought the new forums - I wonder whether they stay where they are now or not.

As some famous man once said

There are some things so serious you have to laugh at them.

Hi Guys, long time no see!! 

Really don’t care for this new site at all, I just typed a reply here, the smilie didn’t work and the whole reply vanished before I’d finished it. Anyway what I was saying is that I hate those blue words that keep appearing now and then that when you run your mouse over them, they bring up some stupid b***** add that you certainly don’t wish to see!  Why on earth has Daz stepped to such a low level - frankly it sucks!

Just noticed also, that everyone here is listed as a new member!

You stop being a new member when you have posted more than 25 times, so on the 26th post you become a fully fledged member, and get a little green square tingy under your name.

It’s not much of a substitute for an avatar, but it’s all we get at the moment. shut eye

@JoAJ
OMG, one of my long lost Peasant Girls!


Yup, we’re all new, you don’t know me and frankly, I’ve never even heard of you.  I keep having vague flashbacks from another life in a previous forum, at least, I think they’re flashbacks.


@Pam
Just out of curiosity, did DAZ actually test this new system on a clone of the original server before it went live?  Have to wonder because if they did, there’s no reason all this stuff shouldn’t have been running properly from the start.  If you play around with a clone of the forum on an identical configuration, and get it right, you also get it right when it goes live.


It amazes me why they even need to sort out these problems after making it live.  It should have been done before it went live, by testing on an identical offline clone of the original server.  We have a saying here in the UK, when we see something ridiculous from America on the TV, and we say, “Only in America”.  I think we need a new one that goes something like, “Only DAZ”.


I was just about to post a smiling smiley to show that I mean that in good humour, but as I said, the new smilies look crap so I absolutely refuse point blank to use them!

I will third this.

JoAJ - I’m pretty sure your system has been compromised.  You should check it thoroughly for viruses/worms/trojans/malware.

Hi JoAJ - nice to see you back, long not seen. The blue things are links, if you get somewhere else than anything DAZ, your browser might have a problem.

Thankyou WinterFlame, another one of my lovely Peasant Girls!


Thanks for the passionate snog, and I wish the DAZ Peasants would hurry up and fix the avatars, because that way I can start a new Peasant Girl thread and open it by declaring my new avatar.  It’s a picture of me, something for all my Peasant Girls to fantasize over!


Until then, here’s a return snogging *GLOMP*
And of course, a humping *HUMP*

As I said in another thread

Well there is an official answer to this, but I am not certain I am allowed to post it here, as we don’t have any content advisory flags yet.  wink
