OK. Knowing that anything could happen, I decided to let my first shopping experience here be the new freebie ‘Sweet Dreams’. I was already logged in when I clicked the link in the newsletter, which I usually do. The link sent me to a page that asked me if I was Kerry Hobbs. Well, I’m not Kerry, so I said so and re-entered my user info. I got the ‘Sweet Dreams’ page and clicked the Add to Cart button. The page hiccuped and came back asking me if I was Kerry Hobbs again. It also indicated at the top of the page the ‘Sweet Dreams’ was now on my (or Kerry’s) wishlist. Strange. I told the page I wasn’t Kerry again and pushed the Cart button again. Same thing. I went to the wishlist indicated at the top of the page asking me if I’m Kerry and I was sent to my own wishlist. At the top of the list was a nice little green box that told me that ‘Sweet Dreams’ had been added to my cart and a nice little red box telling me I could only purchase one instance of said product. OK.

After this, I decided to go ahead with the purchasing process just to see what it was like. I opened my cart and made the purchase. Evidently, it’s a three step process. The first step being confirming my address (why, I’m not sure since DAZ isn’t mailing me anything). Interestingly enough, I seem to have four separate instances of my address listed. Not sure why that would be. All the same address, just four of them. I also found that I had two separate instances of the single credit card I use for this store. Don’t like that. I deleted one of them, but I already know from other posts that DAZ keeps my information whether I want them to or not. Not good.

The purchase process continued without further strangeness. I went to my downloads page and had to decide which of the four files I needed to download (I did know about this before hand from forum chatter). I found the file and am downloading it as I type. I have no idea how much longer I will be downloading because i have no idea how large the file is. Having limited bandwidth, I can say I am not happy about that little oversight.

Needless to say, I will not be spending any real money here until the site is ready for primetime.

Yes, I know some folks are going to come and say how great their experience has been with the store. I’m happy for them. Really. My experience doesn’t fill me with confidence. No thank you, I’ll wait.


Well, there were paragraphs when I typed the thing. They don’t seem to have made it. Sorry.

All I can say is that I am not Jeff Peterson…I have never been Jeff Peterson and I don’t intend to become Jeff Peterson. smirk  Otherwise…once I figured out a way around the wrong name glitch, it went ok getting the Sweet Dreams.

I’ve been getting similar messages when I come to the website as well, but mine have cleared once I log in as myself. I think I have been seven different” Not **************** ” so far. Am I getting a split personality?

Yeah, i’m not that guy either. This new system sucks. Where’s the show only pc/mac files option. That nicely colored thing to show which files we were downloading was pretty awesome too. I hate these new forums, And WTF is up with the multiple page BS on/for my wishlist. I don’t need to know how many items are siting there collecting dust until I can afford them.

I do agree the option to have only the files you need (PC or MAC) would be greatly appreciated if put back in place. As for the wishlist thing…I just ignore it. I know I have things in it. When I win the lottery, I’ll clear it out. LOL I do like the new smileys in here, though.

Yes I find having the mac and Pc files listed a bit confusing.It taxes my little brain to have to read carefully to find out which is which(Taxes it quite a lot actually). It was much easier when we had a little button to get rid of the mac files.I have wasted quite a bit of download time because of the mac files.http://www.daz3d.com/forums/smileys/#

Ps
How do I get to use the Smileys? I have tried several times but still not ended up with one. It all gets too much for old brain matter to cope with.

And the print is very tiny on that page (as well as this one). As for the smileys…when you use “Fast Reply”, click on the blue smileys word right above and another window opens. Click on the smiley you want and there it is. cheese  I haven’t used the “Post Reply” yet.

raspberry cool smile  Same thing only the blue smiley word is over to the side. And in Post Reply, you can “bold” it or “ital” or “underline” and all that other fun stuff. Even preview to make sure you typed it correctly (which I so sorely need at times).  red face

I had funny things happening trying to buy that too.
First it didn’t add to my cart - no matter what I did.
Then I looked at my whishlist - lo and behold, there is something in my cart.
Going there, trying to check out.
Seeing my adress (only one in my case) - click next.
Seeing my adress again - click next.
Seeing my adress again - click next.
Seeing my adress again - click next.
Seeing my adress again - click next.
Seeing my adress again - click next - wow! After so many tries I was able to do step 2 and 3 ...
Doesn’t make me want to buy something for actual money, to tell the truth.
Maybe they take my money 6 times?

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

My first attempt to buy a product - this weeks freebie Sweet Dreams.

Clicked the add to cart button - the page refreshed but nothing in cart. I remembered reading that it takes a while so I opened another tab & started to browse the forums.
A couple of minutes later I went back, still nothing clicked add to car t- the page refreshed but nothing in cart.
Repeated procedure a dozen times until eventually (after half an hour) I got a message saying it was added to cart.
Checked my cart & it is in there along with anothe 5 copies.
Clicked on the remove item button for the bottom one - waited - cart refreshed - still 6 items in cart
Repeated process another 3 times & get message saying item ADDED to cart - now 9 items in basket.
Repeat process another 8 times - now only 1 item in cart.
Go to checkout - confirm address - payment not required - place order.
Order not found???

Three quarters of an hour wasted trying to ‘buy’ a free product - not impressed with the new store.
