Go to the People Page and click on "Advanced Search" Seem to be 6 of you living in Santa Fe.

okay, so I couldn't figure it out. Once I've clicked on "People", I have only "search". If I click the upper 'search' button without entering any info, I get 'advanced search' option, but then I'm not on the 'people' page, but have a list of topics to choose from. Both searches I've done from here ('tags and content' or just 'tags') don't get me the list...do I have to be a full member perhaps?

This may be slightly off topic – but I tried to join the D-Word "network" on Facebook. It asked for a valid email address, which I supplied. But nothing worked.

The Network is only for people running The D-Word who have a d-word.com email address. You could join The D-Word Group .

By the way, I made sort of a surprise visit to Peter yesterday and checked on his progress with the next milestone of The D-Word software. Everything is on track, film profiles and embedded video look great, and most new features will be ready for our 10th anniversary.

Dear Sirs – Can you tell me where I would post incriminating photos from Indie Film Week? Thank you.

The Photo Album?

Or in the fifth trashcan in the alley behind the boarded up store between the two Chinese herb shops around the corner. Please deposit the photos in a fastened purple envelope which should say "Mr. Jones' x-rays" in Sanskrit on the cover.

Can I remove or edit a post of mine? I thought I saw someone do this once but looked through the help topics and can't find my way...

Just be sure to tell everyone which one it was so that we can read it first before they remove it. :)

Sorry Gregory. You can't edit or remove after 15 minutes or if someone has posted after you.

How do you paste a vimeo movie directly into a post. It's not clear from any of the instructions.

Nigel, it seems like some topics have the Attach Video boxes at the bottom and others don't. Not totally sure why, myself. Peter Gerard, are you out there?

Doug Block

Also just noticed that topics that don't have Embed Video capabilities do when you go into Edit This Post mode. What's up with that, Peter?

Doug, in an attempt to prevent an inflationary "myspacing" of our beautiful D-Word, we haven't switched on the Embed Video feature for all topics (as you should know). Email me if you can't find the switch.

For the time being, Video Embeds are switched on in those topics where they make the most sense. But we're open to reasonable requests. :-)

Good point, Nigel. I switched on video embeds in Cameras.

in response to a personal request from Boston-Red-Sox-lover Aron Gaudet, i've decided to change my profile picture back to my own ugly mug. so i went to my profile page, clicked on "Pictures", and made something else my primary photo. however, the photo has not changed at all for my postings. does it take a day or so to kick in? or is this a bug?
