Okay, before I start, I’ve put this off for close to a year. I’ve also searched in every way I could think of - with no results. But now, my curiosity has gotten the best of me.
What purpose do people have for registering/joining the 3DWH, but do not create and upload any models?
1. You don’t have to be a member or signed in to cruise thru the 3DWH
2. You don’t have to be a member or signed in to d/l models
3. You don’t have to be a member or signed in to view models in the WebGL 3D Viewer
I have noticed that most of the people clicking the “like” on my models, have no models of their own. Some of them have collections of literally THOUSANDS of liked models. One has over 26,000 “liked” models - but none of his own. Nearly none of these people can be contacted. And one of them appears to be a professional of some sort.
One, who’s clicked the “like” on one of my models as recently as 15 July (has no models of his/her own), has links in his/her profile to FB, twitter and Linkedin - all of them lead to blank pages.
On the flip side, most of the warehousers who DO have their own models, CAN be contacted.
What gives with these people who lurk around in the warehouse clicking the “like” on peoples’ models?
I can’t help but wonder if some of them are gleaning models for use in activities for which they earn money, using models that were created in free versions of SU - something I, as the creator of those models, am not allowed do using a non-pro version of SU.
