NEW LOOK of this site. Do you like it?


#64

Also I would like to know that a specific user on or off line


#65

Another issue is that some CODE blocks that initially contained angle brackets now show &gt and &lt as thier html substitues


#66

Most of these issues will be addressed when advanced search starts up. We are still in migration amd bug phase at the moment and as you probably noticed when vbullitien stopped updating a lot of new software didn’t integrate these features so they have to be custom coded. Its on the books but we don’t have a timeline for launching it other than to say its important to us as well


#67

You can you just have to click the top date on the scroll bar to go to the top or bottom. Not exactly intuitive. If your on mobile there’s a page count at the bottom


#68

The fields are there on profiles to enter name and location if they are not visible its a users choice


#69

User online status indicators are planned with advanced search as well. We have a small team of programmers so unfourtanetly things will take us considerable time but we are in a continuous update mode so things are be worked on monthly.

Let us know what you want and need and we will continue to work on updates. Phase 1 is migration and bugs which we have about 60 to 90 hours left of before moving to the the next stage. Your request may not be directly next but they do get listed when spots are available for updates

Also searching stuff on googlo now gets rather confusing, try searching for ‘CGTalk Real time refresh/upgrade rollout background’. You get this:

But clicking the link takes you here:

Also, I have trouble logging in on several computers, different browsers, so I just frequent cgtalk less now.


#71

So do I.
Searching is now practically useless. And it was, by far, the most important thing for programmers.


#72

The visual “improvements” are terrible and the functionality is even worse.


#73

Does anyone know how to edit a post posted few months ago?


#74

can you restrict search to a particular forum ? otherwise the site is next to useless


#75

For the most part a good effort but I really hate the way the reply textbox functions. It’s ok on mobile but on desktop, squeezed all the way the bottom of the screen - just awfully awkward.


#76

Having a harder time seeing the difference between Artstation and CGSociety anymore.


#77

could go here and give them a piece of your mind I guess:

“CG+ was built with a huge focus on delighting its users. The sleek dark design brings a touch of class to the application making CG+ a pleasure to use. Always. And of course, we haven’t skipped anything when it comes to great usability.”

Search doesn’t work, stats out of whack, but hey, it’s the ‘look’ that matters…


#78

Admins… What the hell are you doing with this forum???


#79

Travis

Since January 1st, I don’t receive notifications, nor emails either from posts I’m watching.


#81

It would be good to have the possibility to download this whole forum, even in plain text.


#82

In case anyone would like to try, here’s the CSV file with post count, views, thread link and date.
2003 - 2019 years
CGTalk_3ds_Max_SDK_and_MaxScript_2003-2019_CSV.zip (957.0 KB)

You can try this javascript snippet in your browser developer tools to parse any cgs forum section.
It first tries to scroll down to a maximum and then scroll back a little to force new threads loading event. Maybe you’ll need to tweak numbers for it to work on your pc.

var times = 0;
var scroller = setInterval(function() { 
	
	if ( times++ < 1000 ) 
	{ 
		window.scroll(0, window.scrollMaxY );
		window.scroll(0, scrollY - 150 );
		
	} else { clearInterval(scroller); console.log("finished!"); } 
	
}, 300);

Thank you @Serejah for the threads list.

How would you then download each thread to a separated file having them use a common folder for the assets?

Even if we could crawl the whole forum, I don’t know the CGSociety policies about this.

I was thinking more on the idea of having a sort of indexed “digested mailing list” that CGSociety would provide us. A simple .TXT file per thread organized in folders, preferable with the “code” tags to make the parser’s work easier :slight_smile:
