Cool!

I hope LightWiki picks up where Flay left off. Lightwave Plugin db is undeniably useful but what I really miss about Flay was the daily LW-related news we used to get from it.

It didn't like my phone number until I removed all the dashes. Might want to let people know 'numerals only'.

I don't know why it won't accept my postal address. I'm in the US btw--is there a specific format I should use for US addresses?

We must stress we only could restore what we had. we also upgraded the wiki to the latest stable build... please you have full control over most aspects of the WIKI we need to restore it back to what it originally was and more , Dodgy has been building it up ,but its long way from being back up to speed... if you have knowledge or something solid and think would be useful to any lightwave artist ,signup and start writing.

Hey all,
Just like to say that none of this would have been possible without Steph's huge effort - it's as much his site as mine now! The wiki side of it was always what was most important to me, but a wiki doesn't work without everybody else's contribution. I find myself snowed under with work right now, so I am still taking something of a back seat in all this - Steph just has to put up with me moaning, rather than adding anything useful. :)

Thanks very much to everyone, and get a USB key too!

yeah sad but true... got'a respect him for that, at least now the website has personal meaning , seems to be the trend, sites of this nature cost money to run belive it or not, if there is not enough support coming from users and certain publishers there is neither the want or drive to push them along.

it was taken for granted that flay.com would be around forever and when it got pulled the thought comes to mind " its not missed until its gone"

somebody asked the other day surely lightwiki servers don't cost that much"business class pro" and tbh there not exactly cheap nor expensive we probably can just scrape by with the payments (x) a year* hence the USB Drive.

I'll bite, if PayPal is set up so as to accept payment without an account with them? Though I'm not sure that is always an option they provide for the plebeians not filling their pockets with adequate gold.

First and last time I tried using PayPal I had a rather unceremonious email saying a transfer of funds had been declined (despite the test payment going through) and not to bother getting in touch with them as they were sure it was my bank that was the cause. I don't recall my bank ever having declined a transaction without calling me up subsequently, but there you have it.

Nice to see this venture being reborn.

Nice to see this venture being reborn.

personally I don't handle the money aspect "not my department nor my paypal account" .

I had a nightmare with paypal a few months ago when I went to set-up a new account " new bankcard" they deposit a small fee 3p or something then you active the account telling them how much they put in "security" but alas it never showed up , several times I spoke with them several times they supposedly added this entrance amount into my account and never worked ...


any...ways we use paypal because its over https and its most commonly used that and the joomla main shop plugin has blind sql injection atm , so we would rather avoid that for the time being .

cheers btw

Yes, you can just use a credit card, I know because I did, even though it's my site n'all - I just wanted one of those USB cards! :D I know it's kinda Peter paying Paul (PayPaul? Hmm, sounds like a good online bank name!), but it was also a test to see if it would work. And it does... :)

btw UK and Germany are top buyers. 17 to go 9 days please dont let this fail, the usb gui is very nice and the content is very pretty and the tuts are awesome and the discounts will save you way over 25 euros in the long run ... and ever tried to fit a usb in the back with a dongle and another usb , this slots in perfect because it wafer thin ...payday is not to the end of the month so if your poor like me just hit that like button, if you feel hmm to gimmicky but would like to support there is also a donate button ,this has nothing to do with making money or profit,its to cover server costs so I can actually work on the code rather than the money aspect.

Talking about the code the wiki side will be implemented into the whole site and the forums will be tweaked , if you get a css error with the board refresh and clear the cache , I was working on it last night ... I must stress my marriage and sex life took a huge dunt last month " sitting upto 4am is not productive " I took one for the TEAM :)

...no registration is required to buy the USB product ! FYI .

LightWiki was always a great site and we must thank Preset Central and all the other guys who helped out they done a great job of hosting it, many a time I went there to grab some information ,we thought about just leaving it the wiki aspect and tbh it would be just as good ,we discussed this in lengths and there is no magic bullet that will make this site successful , its the USER that make it, you have full run of the wiki add edit delete .

we decided to scale the project back , at first we thought about an app store something like turbo , but that is not the core concept of LightWiki, LightWiki is a hub for all LightWave3D users to learn.

the USB Drive is to give users a cracking deal and to cover our server costs .

again we would like to Thank everyone for there help and donations.

good stuff , I hope you are pleased with it?
Oh Aye, then again, like I said when I ordered, knowing who was involved, I had to buy one anyway, couldn't of done otherwise in good conscience. :)


We understand 25 euros is a lot of dosh esp for 4gb and at this time of year so cheers.

No worries, knowing I've helped secure the future of the site for a while is kinda cool actually. :thumbsup:

Now all I gotta do is find the time to sit down and watch the tutorials :p
