Default Site Update - Part two

We're working to get this finished at the moment but we are suffering from a few delays. Also lack of sleep and irritability

We decided not to go with a straight copy of SimplyMaya we wanted a new download system, streaming sample clips of all the tutorials, single file downloads, a new forum, full search and a raft of other features that SimplyMaya does not have yet. However it's all taking a bit longer than expected and we'd rather have it done right than just almost working.

I'm pleased to say we also have some Lightwave 10 training ready to go.

Feel free to post in here if there is anything you'd like to see on the new site.

Please bear with us. Thanks
Dave

Thanks I hope people will start to come back to the forum, and we can give this place the kick it needs. It happened at SimplyMaya. With a bit of luck and some work we can make SLW the place it should be.

Hi Dave,

Make sure to add a section in the forum labeling: "Request for Tutorial Ideas" with a voting system.

Cheers.

I'm happy with that, I think you are doing a great job and I hope it will draw more people to this site! We need some more activity here. I know that part of it is Lightwave itself has had it's own problems but things are looking up all around.
