When uploading a 3D item it would be really nice if the category dropdown enabled one next to it and filled it with appropriate options to be selected.

To give an example, yesterday I uploaded a little prop of a suntan lotion bottle. When trying to get it categorised correctly I had to edit the upload twice, and each time I had to select the thumbnail, main image & upload file as well. On the initial creation I could select the category as '3D Model', next edit a new dropdown had appeared next to '3D Model' and I could select sub category 'Props' and on the final edit a third dropdown had appeared where I could select the 'Household' sub category of props. It would have been nice to have three dropdown category lists and as the leftmost one is selected, it enables the one to the right of it and fills in appropriate options.

Furthermore, when editing an upload, is it possible to allow the Thumbnail, Main Image and Upload to remain what they were unless deliberately replaced by selecting a new file? If someone wants to correct a spelling error in the description text, the three files need to be uploaded again. It all risks errors creeping in and adds needlessly to the time taken.

It is possible to carry on in the way it is, but it'd be quicker & easier with the suggested changes.

Thank you. It is a little thing, I know, but it shouldn't be a huge programming task, and the total time saved will add up rapidly.



PS, what a pleasant difference in response to similar suggestions on another site where suggestions rarely get acknowledged let alone passed on. Thank you.

Wow. I uploaded a freebie today & everything I asked for and more had been incorporated. That is brilliant. Really appreciate the responsiveness of the Renderosity team.

I have one further comment.

Just tried to look at the freebie I uploaded to verify the wording & found while it's in quarantine it's not possible to either look at or edit the freebie.

It occurs to me that if the moderator/checker asks for wording changes (as happened with my garden furniture freebie to explain about poor visibility in any preview mode except iRay preview mode) then the freebie has to be deleted rather than updated. That would be a shame.

Is it possible to enable the edit button on a freebie while in quarantine prior to approval? At the moment just get a message saying 'You do not have permission to view this item.'.
