The Poser Content Directory



  • I've been going back and forth over what to do next. A lot has changed for me in the last month or so, but the time has come for me to enter this world full time. To that end, I've made some decisions concerning the directory. The first being that the Poser Content directory will be joining Patreon. Patreon is a membership platform that provides tools for creators to run a content service, with ways for artists to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons".

    I will be offering a 3 tiered system for access:

    • $1 or less a month gets you access to the directory. In other words, it's still free, but you can donate a dollar.
    • $5 a month gets you access to the directory and tips and Tricks of Poser.
    • $10 a month gets you access to the directory, tips and Tricks of Poser, and object files made in Blender for use in Poser.

    This will be starting in a day or so.

    I will still be adding to, and subtracting from the directory. I will be searching out tips and tricks to use in Poser and I will still be modeling.

    You'll probably be hearing other news regarding the site in a few days. I'll post it here so you'll know what's going on.

    So, while lots of people are leaving Patreon you are joining? => Check the net, check the news, check tube us all.
    => I did, and Patreon is one of those things where I put a NEVER-NEVER-NEVER sign behind.

    Patreon is probably gonna be reserved for the real money hungry who actually prefer blood, but will settle for money. LOL.
    Count me out, I only like honest business. I wanna wee what I buy into before I buy into it.



  • @vilters It costs me money every month to have the Directory up and running. Only patrons have to pay anything and that is for extra stuff that is not included on the site.



  • By the way, for those who are following news of Patreon and people leaving, you should know that those people feel that they are being harrassed by Patreon for reasons that honestly do not concern me. I am offering a directory for finding Poser content, pure and simple. You can shop to your leisure. For those of you who pledge money, You will be directed to other pages where you can read or download the information.

    @vilters Oh my goodness, I didn’t know I was a vampire and a gold-digger!!!
    Thank you so much for telling me!
    [end sarcasm alert]

    Shame on you to shame people who create and support creators who put their time, quality and effort in to offer exclusive value to the 2D and 3D community.

    I recommend to my fellow 3D creators to make a patreon creators page, spoil your special fans with exclusive content...but it will not make you rich with a symbolic tier of $1, but it can make supporter artists happy.

    Without appreciation there can be no creation...

    @biscuits With my red hair, according to Tony, I am a vampire too. This is why I support you on Patreon. Vampire has to show solidarity to other Vampires.



  • I don't think you're aware of what Patreon has been doing.

    They have decided to ban people for activity they don't like ANYWHERE. Not just activity on their site or on the internet but anywhere, even in real life.

    They don't think of you as paying for a financial service, they think you are there to support their 'brand' and they claim they are protecting their 'brand'.

    None of this is in their terms and conditions, they seem to be making it up as they go along, which means you have no protection from their arbitrary decisions.
    For example: What happens if they decide tomorrow that 'Renderosity' is a p*rn site and find you have been posting on Renderosity?

    You know this is possible. We've been through this before with our hobby.

    For your own financial security you should find an alternative to Patreon as soon as possible.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    It is their "interactive and doubtful connection" with credit card companies that worries most.

    All these "dark" sites that promise easy money are collecting so much information, (completely behind our back and without permissions from anybody) that it is safer to walk down a dark street at night completely drunk, stoned and naked.

    Remember ; Nothing is free on the Net. Connect to these "easy money sites", and you are open and exposed to God and the rest of the world.



  • @prixat If they find that tomorrow Renderosity is a porn site, THEN I will leave. But three things:

    1. I still have to get approved. Which means they will review the site.
    2. I do list, but do not sell any vendors that they might deem as pornographic. If they're going to get me, it would be now.
    3. Why don't you find me a reasonable alternative site? The truth is, I've supported this Directory, on my own, for two years and I can't keep doing so.

  • Poser Ambassadors

    Instead of spreading fake news I suggest you start creating content for Poser because my motivation is running low when I read this uneducated bullshit.


  • Poser Ambassadors

    Ya know, this thread was started to support one of Posers long time supporters....

    And look where it is going?

    WTF.....



  • @biscuits You shouldn't be using Patreon, @vilters has a video to prove it...

  • @eclark1849 I don't know how reliable these are but how about liberapay or funderdog?
    Everybody is currently doing "donation buttons", go to the Paypal or Stripe websites directly.

    Are you mis-reading Vilters' posts done in his usual calm and measured style? LOL.
    I don't think anyone is telling you not to get funding, just think twice before signing up with Patreon.



  • @prixat I had some bad luck dealing with Paypal in the past, so I don't mess with them directly. As for Tony, I respect him and his knowledge, but it stops there.



  • @shvrdavid It still is. If I were independently wealthy or I hit the lottery I'll let you know.

    Hi Earl ; You know I support each and every Poser initiative but Patreon is just the wrong platform.

    For the rest?
    I am not here to make friends but to help people out or get started.
    I am NOT the "great render guy" but I silently work on the tech behind it.

    When something is good, i will say it. But when I don't like something, well, I"ll say that too.

    There is nothing wrong with Patreon.
    Your earlier insults to patreon and their customers was way out of line.
    HDRI Haven now releases free HDRI content every week thanks to Patreon.
    Is that a bad thing?

    Do you know what is wrong? ...….Slander that is wrong.
