I think we should list this, but where?[edit]

Running Daz Studio on a Linux computer. It's a technical page, not a step-by-step how-to, but it's the only thing I've ever seen discussing how to run DS on a computer that doesn't run Windows. --Robkelk (talk) 16:17, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

For sure. I would put it under the Geekie Notes in the Documentation and Tutorials page.--Dollygirl (talk) 20:44, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

I am having to do a position change[edit]

So to help make the Wiki work a bit easier I need to change a decision of Rob's about using the category Wardrobe. In the past he and I have removed the category from pages where a subcategory is a better description of what the item is. However as I have flushed out the concept of defining these subcategories the set of subcategories has become large. There are a lot of freebies out there. As the lists of the higher level subcategories have become longer and longer such as the category Accessories I have started to break down the category into finer subgroupings such as head, arm, waist and such. As a result of doing this I can no longer keep the dpl statements within the allotted limits as set by Miraheze and my statement breaks. So for the work I am doing on the Star Trek Resources/Wardrobe I am putting the category Wardrobe back on the pages we have identified as being included in a subcategory of Wardrobe to fix my problem and allow me to write a statement the Miraheze will not spit out because of breaching the limits.
I am doing this so that pages such as Star Trek Resources can be autogenerated. As we have begun to create themed pages such like the Star Trek page or the Sci-Fi page and the like and we have to worry about updating every page where we want a freebie to be listed and right now we need to do this manually. This becomes difficult and error prone. As in the past Kerya has had to fix my oversights when I have added a new freebie source. We have multiple examples of this such as the Figures, Animals, or Hair lists which also require adding the freebies to the figure page or subpage it was originally created for, what cosplay list if any, it should be assigned to, or any other main category page that we feel it belongs to.
I believe that putting back the category wardrobe or for that matter any of the top level categories, Hair or Figure as examples, will not impact negatively on the performance or space usage for the site. Please correct me if I am wrong though. On the negative side what it will do is add more complexity to how a page should be created and assigned categories. My proposed fix for this is to start to develop a document on a dedicated page of how a page should be created. We started this effort in the past. It is now I think time to dust off that section and add to it. I have started to outline the section about categories and their hierarchy in User:Dollygirl/sandbox/CategoryHierarchy. It is bare bones. Just trying to wrap my arms around what we have done so far.
I am making the changes now so please if you have strong feelings that we need to go a different way please please say so. As I tell my friends, family and co-workers there is more then one way to skin a cat. This wiki is not my creation it is ours. You won't bother me if you all want to do something different and I have to go back and make more changes. --Dollygirl (talk) 21:21, 12 February 2021 (UTC)

Cosplay or not?[edit]

Paul - Accessoires

--Kerya (talk) 07:48, 26 February 2021 (UTC)

A 'sofa-monster' LoL; my German isn't good enough but I get the feeling it is a private made 'pillow'; kinda cosplay I guess. You tell me, Kerya :)
from the readme
Paul ist ein real existierendes Sofamonster, das im Rahmen einer Nähprobe entstanden ist. Die geistigen Rechte an der realen Figur gehören Centi und sind nicht veräußerbar:
--Glaseye (talk) 13:42, 26 February 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! A Couch Monster - cute. And yes, the intellectual rights belong to Centi. Reading the Readme would have helped. LOL --Kerya (talk) 07:03, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Chohole's site is gone[edit]

I don't have the time to go through all 159 links to mark them as dead ... volunteers?
--Kerya (talk) 13:25, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
I have been talking to Cho about her site. I would like to hold off on updating the wiki until we have determined that most of her stuff is gone. She is looking at finding a way to recover.--Dollygirl (talk) 14:15, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
Good to hear! --Kerya (talk) 14:23, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
Might be that Chohole won't be able to recover the items; What has happened to the site --Glaseye (talk) 17:35, 3 May 2021 (UTC)
So her web pages may be gone although wayback has the pages just not the files and some of the images. Some of her DAZ files maybe gone because Neil was the DAZ guy for her. But she does have some of the poser files. I am compiling a list and we shall see what we can do to bring back her freebies just not her web site. She has hundreds of files.--Dollygirl (talk) 18:55, 3 May 2021 (UTC)

How to rename?[edit]

At the Famous People page

Mon Laferte SuperPack for G2, G3 and G8M

Should be Mon Laferte Superpack for G2F, G3F and G8F ...

--Kerya (talk) 05:32, 21 April 2021 (UTC)

Beside the search box on the page, there's a dropdown menu titled "More". Select "Move" from that dropdown menu, and you'll be sent to a page where you can change the page name. (Leave the "create a redirect" box checked if it appears - we have plenty of room for redirects.) --Robkelk (talk) 12:16, 21 April 2021 (UTC)
Thank you! --Kerya (talk) 05:12, 22 April 2021 (UTC)

Redeyecat is closing down her blog[edit]

So we are losing another freebie content site but she is allowing people to use and distribute her products. She is closing the blog in a month so if there is anything you want from her best to get it now.

Eblank got banned at Sharecg[edit]

Because she uploaded textures and linked to Adam Thwaite's free clothes ... and it is another store and some admin at sharecg decided that it is competition. I am going through her links as far as I can find them. --Kerya (talk) 05:35, 14 May 2021 (UTC)

Thanks, Kerya. I've never understood that attitude - I'd think that having the crosslinks would increase traffic to both sites. --Robkelk (talk) 12:52, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
Well that is a relief in some ways. I was worried that she might have gotten sick or something. As to Sharecg I went back and read their user agreement. Kind of scary. Pretty much says that they can do just about anything and you agree to it. I could not find any list of presumed no-no's that included linking to another store's freebie section. I wonder what they do if she had linked to a page on the wiki that listed the link to the freebie. --Dollygirl (talk) 15:33, 14 May 2021 (UTC)
She is okay and has uploaded her newest textures at Renderosity. The guy at sharecg didn't even realize it isn't her own store ... don't ask. --Kerya (talk) 05:00, 15 May 2021 (UTC)


Renderhub is a shop that has a sizable collection of freebies for DAZ Studio and generic 3d models. Shall I add teh links or there is some problem with the shop?. Link: AntonioCC (talk) 17:48, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

As an additional note, the shop has a mature section. So, I don't know.AntonioCC (talk) 17:51, 19 May 2021 (UTC)

The only reason I didn't add them was that I didn't know about them. As for "mature", the only time we decided to not list a mature site was because it had items that sexualized minors and there was no way to list only the items that didn't. As long as the mature freebies are all for grown-up characters, let's list them. --Robkelk (talk) 11:22, 20 May 2021 (UTC)
Not that I have seen, most of the DAZ stuff is SFW anyway. AntonioCC (talk) 16:59, 20 May 2021 (UTC)

It is now possible to search by page categories - no, it isn't, yet[edit]

We now have an advanced Search that can search for page categories! I know this is something we've wanted for years, so as soon as I found out about it, I made it happen. --Robkelk (talk) 12:46, 4 August 2021 (UTC)

Still a little buggy. Maybe it needs more time to crawl the content, perhaps. --Robkelk (talk) 12:50, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
No, it needs a feature that I can't enable. I'll have to get help from Miraheze staff. --Robkelk (talk) 12:54, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
Bug report created. --Robkelk (talk) 13:07, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
