I think the very first message I posted already stated most of what types of threads we're talking about here. And alot of those are still allowed but just not in the main area. What we want #1 is good work. Or something that will help people make good work is ok too. But really... unless you have a very specific question you should go to SCIFI-MESHES for all your learning needs. LIke... hey Dr.Jones how did you get that specularity setting in MAX on that armor? Not hey... I don't know how to make a character can you help... or hey can you just make it for me, etc. 99% of this stuff we don't want anymore is just like that. It's not a specific technical question. It's a very open-ended question masquerading as a request. Or it's just a silly question that is so basic it's a "take me by the hand" and show me question. People gotta help themselves more. Practice, read, buy a book, whatever... and save your questions just for the good ones. The rest of it is common-sense too. No model requests in the main area.. no where is this where is that... no more which app is better crap... etc. I try to fill the FAQ with everything I can so these people can just be told to read the FAQ. But they'll either not read it or it just won't cover everything. Like everybody else has said... and the one thing we do all agree on... this forum is not equipped to handle this situation in a way that is satisfactory to everybody. So people will just have to make due.
