Should we close this forum?

will really be interested in the older V4 stuff.
While I'm a staunch Daz user (like you, I finally abandoned Poser, having used it from it's very beginning), I use mostly Vicky Four.  The whole Genesis line is nothing but a cash cow and none of the figures enjoy nearly the wardrobe that Vicky has.  Despite having collected what I thought was everything available, I still see items I don't have.   There's several folks at ZoneGFX.com who still post the older items.

Btw., I still can't believe WTH has happened... No idea about the time frame, I must've been in (some kind of) limbo and when I awoke - well, a lot has been said, not -so- sure I need to add anything. I've been here since the beginning, lots of different names -unfortunately- and I'll be around until they can pry this b0x from my cold, dead, hands. :)

If there's something V4 that ya need let me know and if I have it will up it.
Or request it in that forum or PM me however you all want to do it.

Getting it sorted started yesterday so I can find stuff have over 100 DVDs with content on them. Also a lot on my storage drives.

I use v4 in daz studio at times for certain things along with the Genesis content. Your right that's their cash cow for sure.

Off to sort content.

It's always nice to have a place to go when the current sharing alternatives go down.
But if you need to clean the forum, keeping an almost dead section makes little sense for you as an admin.

I'd hate to see this section shut down since (as others have pointed out) it's a stable 'fire escape' if/when the sharing sites get their plugs pulled or become greedy. I wouldn't think that it would take any additional effort to maintain this tiny, itty-bitty, teeny-weeny, little corner of a very large set of forums.

While I tend to go absent, what with real life and all, I do still try to check in every now and then, and I like this forum (dare I say it) better than Kat. Far less toxic overall, even if only for its sparsity of posting (which we, as the community, should definitely address, self included).

I generally tend to not post if I have nothing useful to input, but I feel it necessary to point this out:

Unless I have somehow become far less literate in the last few moments, this is basically a straw-man argument personified in text.

I didn't see any mention of significant effort to maintain whatsoever. Merely the implication that having this "fire escape" is potentially counter-productive if the majority of posts in it are telling people to go elsewhere. Most of which that I've seen being quoted directly from yourself, in fact, along with a very thorough and polite explanation of exactly how you're doing so, and which you have no qualms announcing you do in similar, Kat-like spaces.

The point of a fire escape is to have a place to gather, a quintessential safe space, not a place full of active suggestions that people leave.

Posting links for (or, even better, just uploading them as a torrent) all of those wonderful, shiny things obtained from wherever else folks are being referred to would be a step in the right direction, as it costs the uploader nothing but time, and provides it here. Y'know, in the "fire escape." With no strings attached. Like Sid suggested as a means to help this community (or "fire escape," since that seems to be the new "in" term for it) remain a "stable" thing...
