    a forum where you cannot point out issues with the store's products is in my opinion rather useless one
    if I have problems with anything I go to that product's site and forums for answers be it Skype, Microsoft updates, my music software etc
    yet one can get modded on a certain forum even for pointing out a copyright breach on a texture which in my case I would not have known of if I had not seen the later removed post.

    Wendy. I hear you. It may indeed be a case of anything posted that is offensive to DAZ gets pulled. The very name of this thread is about DAZ reading negative comments from this forum and they terminated the deal before they could see whether it would be lucrative. That means to DAZ it's personal, not business. That said, they do have a lot of forums and they do have some nice, decent and smart folks over there.

    Some folks...apparently some powerful folks near the top...perhaps not so much. Did you try contacting them in private? Perhaps they didn't like being embarrassed in public.

    They must be thin-skinned and probably aren't lovers of Facebook or other social media. Everything gets posted and tagged in those places, and can't be hidden. Unlike forums, where posts can be deleted and binned.

    The frustrating thing for many people is that you used to be able to discuss product quality in the forums. As long as you were polite you could ask questions or make comments including constructive criticism. This changed when D/S4 came out. Since then all people have been allowed to do is praise Daz and the vendors.

    I'm in/from the UK and I am one of the vast number of people saying "Who?" I immediately thought of Benedict Cumberbum :p

    I agree, I don't think I learned anything about American History in school and we had an American History teacher. I don't even remember the 20th-century British history from lessons, but then again I didn't take it as an option and only did it for a couple of years for an hour a week.

    Talking of support and returning things this is a conversation that was relayed to me recently. I will say before I get hounded, that the quote contained in the call is falsely attributed I believe, but I still think this is worth sharing.

    Caller, complaining about a new tablet that has been giving him problems and it now calling tech support for the third time and has been, so say, transferred to the head tech.

    Tech - So you say that the tablet is slow and keeps freezing.

    Customer - Yes it has ever since I purchased it a few days ago.

    Tech - OK what I need you to do is a cold restart.

    Customer- I have already done that three times and it does not make any different.

    Tech - It might this time

    Customer - I am doubtful after all Einstein's definition of insanity is constantly doing the same thing and expecting a different out come, yet this is all you ever advise me to do.

    Tech - Excuse me a moment - music on hold.

    Some minutes later

    Tech - I am sorry I have checked your records and we have no record of you speaking to anyone called Einstein.

    Customer - No I did not speak to him personally. Look the point is I think this tablet is a Friday afternoon job, and not a quality product, I need it replaced.

    Tech - We have no way of knowing which day of the week and tablet is made.

    At this point the customer asked to be transferred to a manager and ultimately had the tablet changed.

    YARROO! Just spotted the Hivewire Cats (large and small) on Rendo's head banner on their Homepage. Congratulations Hivewire! Looking forward to welcoming (hopefully!) some new people to the forum and a great future for all! :snoopydances::snoopydances:

    Yep it is now official! HiveWire3D's Animal Release & Sale! on

    This link also has a good interview with HW talking about our new partnership with Rendo.

    We are all excited about this! Again just to repeat all the HW Animals will also be available here at home at the Hive. This is a non-exclusive deal.

    I was ready to forgo the Hive Animals for the greater good so the information that this is non-exclusive is good news to me, at least this time it should keep and lot more people happy if not everyone.

    A very personal view but I think this has all the advantages of the original agreement and none of the disadvantages, well at least for these two parties entities. I really do hope this really works out and I suspect more Poser users go to Rendo than Daz so, while this is good news for all, this should also be a real plus for those artists that only use Poser.

    I just got an email from rendo about the HW animals are now over there. I had absolutely no clue and didn't see any announcement here. This thread is still the thing about Daz dropping the ball on their HW animal agreement.

    It is Sapat, but I think the good news here is that the ball bounced and resulted in a touchdown for the Hive! :)
