Re: Drex Files is gone!

I suspect that if he had specifically cited the names of the creators of the various models he published online it likely would not have gotten this far. It may be too much trouble for him to go back and ask permission and research names, as busy as he's been lately. Here's hoping, but it's probably over.

Re: Drex Files is gone!

Well, this is a huge, shocking blow to the Trek community! At the very least, it is for me.

A huge travesty, like when Star Trek Australia and Trekmania went down, and comparable in magnitude to if starhipschematics.net or ex-astris-scientia.org were to go down (Lord forbid, of course). Same thing would go for Eaves's blog.

The amount of content on that blog was so massive, you could spend a whole day looking through the site, and not have scratched the surface of the content it had.

And if the artist feel that they need to take proper credit for their artwork, then they can take it upon themselves post their respective works, if they don't feel comfortable about letting anyone else do it! Everyone of them, and every single concept sketch and render that was available, as opposed to leaving it in the dark for no-one to view, like before Drexler posted them!!

I hope that at the very least, Drexler will at least make a site to host all of his own work, so that isn't lost. That would be within his rights.

I see a lot of rumors flying around here, but has there been any authoritative news on why Drex Files is gone?

Re: Drex Files is gone!

^Check the links in the first post. Doug linked to those two articles himself from his Facebook account. Basically, other artists complained to him about putting "Drex Files" over all the the images he posted, even though he was always good about crediting them.

Doug said on his facebook page that a couple of his colleagues e-mailed him and were upset that he had plastered "drexfiles" on the caps and they felt he was trying to take credit for their work. Steve Neil mentions in his Steven Neil Garage videos just this past week.

Don't be silly.

You have to say his name BACKWARDS.

If you never saw Doug Drexler's Wordpress blog, you were missing out on a great resource of ship renders, concept art, and behind-the-scenes info. Unfortunately, it's now gone.
I loved that site.

That's an odd reason to take it down, though. Let the whiners whine, I say.

Interesting. How'd you find that? It certainly seems to be a complete copy of the original.

Re: Drex Files is gone!

Sorry for the resurrection of this thread, but I figured some might be interested in hearing that stuff from the Drex Files will be reposted via The Trek Collective:

thetrekcollective.com wrote:
Missing the blog format of Drex Files, I reached out to Doug, and am delighted that has endorsed a cunning plan to open the files once more. So welcome to the first post of "Drex Files in Exile", where I'll be bringing back some of the old Drex Files articles, and re-presenting what Doug has posted on Facebook. You'll be able to find Drex Files posts on The Trek Collective under a dedicated tag, and I'll be maintaining an index page, which you'll find a link to in the bar at the top of the site, to make it nice and easy to find exactly the Drex File you're looking for.
