New sketchucation HERE @LAST  Topic is solved

Re: New sketchucation HERE AT LAST

Postby iichiversii » Sun Sep 30, 2012 10:54 pm

Was just browsing the new shop feature, just two questions in relation to it-

1. I can see this becoming fuller with more models in the coming future but since there will be many verities of models will it be categorised, ie.. furniture, electronics, buildings, sci-fi and so on, and each category leads to a dropdown menu for example furniture= chairs, tables, sofas. electronics= radios, TV's, toasters.

2. Can a member submit a model/book/texture pack for sale and if so what is the procedure to do so?

If you click on "buy now" button the order summary on the left of the PayPal page should show you automatically the discounted price for premium members.

Definitely on the "to-do" list. We already have a basic tagging system but as the content develops and varies, it will also need to be developed.

It1s not that "automatic" (we do not want a second 3D Warehouse) but yes. Please, contact Rich.

Yes, sure. But this is not the end - we just decided to launch "at a certain stage" of development. Lots of new features are coming sooner or later. ;)

Yes, indeed, it is completely automated but you can always check if you are buying for the "advertised" (premium) price.

@Csaba
Thanks for the reply, just 1 more question for now on the shop, I understand it is not another 3D warehouse an to be honest the 3D warehouse is full of...well how can I say this politely.....crap I suppose will do for now, and I'm sure there will be a screening of each model before posting for sale, is there a port forma for a model to be suited for sale and if so will there be a list available for this? if a model being submitted doesn't fill the port forma requirements will there be a debrief on why the model doesn't get posted? And finally as a model sells through sketchucation I'm sure a percentage will be belong to sketchucation, which is understandable, has there being a set percentage for sketchucation and the model creater?

Sorry if I'm asking too much too soon but just curious :)

Not a formal list - but you know what makes a model good. Like no back faces, not unpurged stuff, no geolocation etc. Yes, we can make such a basic list (although sometimes definitely some unexpected also may arise).

iichiversii wrote:if a model being submitted doesn't fill the port forma requirements will there be a debrief on why the model doesn't get posted?

Yes, the model can be rejected by a "shop manager" and he can provide the reasons for rejection (there is a form for this).

iichiversii wrote:And finally as a model sells through sketchucation I'm sure a percentage will be belong to sketchucation, which is understandable, has there being a set percentage for sketchucation and the model creater?

Yes, 60/40 for author and SketchUcation. Please, refer to the (Shop) EULA > 3.10. Especially note this sentence:

EULA 3.10 wrote:In any case SketchUcation wishes to grant any discount from the price set by the Author, we will use our commission to cover the costs of such discount and the Author receives the original share of his Royalty

This means that the Premium member discount is covered by SketchUcation so you need not worry. ;)

Bob, is it coming up with the normal price or has it added tax somewhere?

New site looks amazing; really polished and easy to navigate. Well done to everyone involved. :thumb:

Attention :

To save all confusion on here there has being a topic posted here http://sketchucation.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=179&t=48123&p=432496#p432496 by our sketchucation developers, the same questions have being asked here on both posts, to save our sketchucation developers from repeating themselfs on both topics I would like to ask all with queries or questions in relation to our new sketchucation site to post at the above link, I'm aware posts can be locked somehow but I'm not sure how to, but the green tick on the post announces this topic is solved.

Ill finish this post again with a big thank you to sketchucation and to congratulate all involved is creating and launching the new site, you have done a fantastic job and made sketchucation a better place for all sketchup artists, the future of sketchucation looks promising and I look forward to what's yet to come, well done and keep up the great work.

Thank you
Damien. :D

@Massimo
Bold icons are difficult to read and hurting eyes! :o
First and foremost on a such "Bright white thema" of background! :ugeek:

"Unbold" icons are quiet, relaxing and not disturbing! ;)

Pilou, you don't need to "read" icons. Icons are symbols for quick reference. They have to communicate with a quick glance. The new icons are "weak". IMHO

Hi everyone,

I'm in the middle of moving house so have missed all this news! Looks great - well done to everyone involved with the new site - it's really taken it to the next level. Although, I am now going to need a new avatar, as mine simply won't do on here now!

Just wondering if there is an 'announcement' thread or the like which describes the changes to the new community and the new features/benefits of premium membership etc?

Many thanks,

Lee
