    I'd go with Poser only. Daz are always blowing their own trumpet anyway. I've had to block them as spam, as even though I cancelled the email subscription, they still send me almost daily messages about stuff which I can no longer use, as it's all rigged to DS.

    Note to All Hivewire Poser Vendors...

    It's been brought to my attention that I may have missed or miscategorized some of you, and I'd like to correct that. If you make content for use in Poser, please contact me if you don't think you were listed properly or at all in the directory and I will correct it as soon as possible. Please be a little patient because I'm having a problem with disappearing capital letters all of a sudden and some web pages aren't showing up like they're supposed to. I'm on it though. Thanks.

    One more thing... I'm rethinking my definition of Poser "native" content for the new year, which means I will likely be adding a few new content makers and sites to the directory. This is significant because it means that while the site will remain Poser centric in name and nature, some of the content listed may also be usable to users of other software like Carrara, Vue and Studio.

    Just for the record, did you ever reach an amicable agreement about your account with FoRender?

    If I put a search function on the website, and you typed in the vendor's name, what should you get back? Maybe a page with every category the vendor's name is listed?

    I'd say that and maybe a list of where the vendor is know to sell under? Possibly, though this would require more maintenance, a list of alternate aliases (for example Aeon Soul, Alpha Seed, etc...).

    The names of the vendors in the directory already link to the stores where they sell content for the category they're listed in. So if a search function returned CWRW's name the link would take you to the store where she sells that particular item.

    So I was on the SM Forum and Biscuits gave me a great idea for an addition to the directory. I'll be adding a new category called Poser Forums. Basically, I will just be listing links to any website with an active Poser forum. So if you have any forum you'd like to have added to the directory, please add the link below and I'll list it as soon as I can.

    Ohhh, isn't that a good idea I hadn't thought of either. Way to go Biscuits. :)

    A lot of sites have closed and taken their forums with them over the years, such as Animotions, RDNA, etc. Daz still has one, but it doesn't get much use from what I can see. Hivewire 's Poser forum seems to be mostly about tutorials, and nothing wrong with that. And I believe that Poserworld's forum has been shut down. At least I didn't find a link to it. Renderosity's got about six Poser forums. and there are a few others here and there, including at least one chat group.

    Oh . . . I'm sure Biscuits gave you a link to the PoserLounge Chat. ;)

    What does the chat consist of? :)

    I haven't been in there lately, but when I go it's just folks getting together and chatting. Some post links to renders they've done lately, or for members like Biscuits and Wim, products they've been working on. It's hardly ever very crowded and they're a pretty friendly group.

    Didn't the place that gave out Halloween and Christmas freebies have one? Fantasy something?

    Fantasies Realm is the one I believe you're thinking of, and they may have had a chatroom, but I don't spend that much time on their site to know if they still do or not.

    I found their Forum, but if there's a chat room, I can't find it. Of course it may be hidden and by invite only.

    Very true. I hadn't thought of that, but if they want to be sure of who's attending, then yes, invitation only would be the way to go.

    Started working on the Poser Forums index page today. A few less than there used to be, but honestly a few more than I thought there were.

    I'm adding Blogs to the list of Poser related online Communities. I wonder if Ken Gilliland has one?
    Anyway, I found this one by J Hoagland this morning.
    JHoagland's Weblog

    Just added Pommerlis' blog
    (no title) (Which apparently has no official title)

    Trying something different on the directory. About to add a figure specific content category for Dusk and Dawn. It is still very much under construction.
