Oh, now you’re scaring me dude! I signed up with them about a year ago, and haven’t used the card since, so obviously I also forgot my password and I might need to start using it as of next month O_o Nissim was always quick and happy to help, so I am certain we’ll have his reply in this thread soon!

I am busy atm, but it’s my to-do list for this week to spam the hell out of the folks with the power to take such actions :P so please do rest assured that there will be something in the works soon enough.

You sir… are my direct inspiration. As in… you did exactly what I had in mind to do, just never went past the “13 Months ago” bit :D

Sweeet :) what’s the long term plan with marketplace off-topic threads? merging them into global off topic or just leaving them as is?
I’d also like to know, as I loooooooooove moving hundreds and hundreds of 3yo threads :D:D

For the moment, this might come in handy as a “to-do-sometime” list… so I am moving it to all-marketplaces to get most suggestions. Not that there aren’t any already set priorities, but feedback is always good, as long as everyone keeps it civilized.

Would be more apt to have a author / user support forum. Fgs what denotes global offtopic from cc offtopic…madness. -5 for originality
I don’t quite get you… What do you mean by author / user support forum?

think he’s referring to a sort of “sub-forum” for buyers and sellers to interact, a tad more organized than through the given comments section. Correct me if I’m wrong :P

Well, this update more than any, seems to be their best jab at Autodesk, in terms of trying to grab a piece of the professional market as opposed to Max/Mudbox combo. Also, I’m noticing some of the awesome features Luxology had implemented in modo 601.

Nothing bad to say about it, as I haven’t tried it yet, and I’m looking forward to grabbing a demo, but until I do that, this is pretty much “nothing new” or majorly exciting :) I got more excited with their physical render for r12 when they launched it lol

not only does captcha not prevent spam, it has been proven to alienate customers.

i will refresh my decision to whine about this at every opportunity when envato refreshes its treatment of me. without buyers ur authors will starve.

you would not believe how many people have contacted me in support of my crusade.. in fact its about to turn into a full blown website. i am that angry.

While I can agree with you that sometimes captcha requires at least 1-2 refreshes for me to be able to solve it (getting old I think), I’ve never been “unable” to solve it… nor did I ever feel “alienated” from buying something just because of a silly little thing like that.

Seriously though, how can one say it doesn’t prevent spam? That’s like admitting to the fact that a spambot is more capable of deciphering the image than “us humans”... really? Yes, if some nice secret gvt. operation would share their image recognition program with a spam-bot creator, that might sound plausible, but so far it doesn’t. And frankly, if you have the time to focus on creating, or contemplate creating a website complaining about something, I do believe your efforts are aimed rather at flaming something that bothers, and I repeat, just “bothers”, a select few, instead of actually trying to solve it. But alas, it’s your choice, and then again, freedom of speech is something well appreciated around here.

That being said, I do believe dtbaker’s suggestion might prove to be useful for everyone to see your point, and better understand this grievous attack captcha is currently aiming at us helpless humans.

VIVA LA REVOLUTION :D
