way to go, Pete! (in the distance, the roar of the crowd chanting in unison is heard: We love Pete, we love Pete)

A virtual pint of special on me for you Pete.

I could do with a pint of special myself. Can you add one as an attachment please.

Also, people with hyphenated names will get correct capitalisation the next time you update your profile!

But how do you keep a long url inside the text box, Peter?

Not wishing to take this to the bar where this is still ongoing, I wonder why when I am not logged in to d-word, and my share this publically box is unticked, I google David Herman d-word and come up with my whole profile warts and all?

until a fix for long url's is here, you can go to tinyurl.com and make them little....

As a pilot project to spread the D-Word among documentary professionals, we're sharing our Sheffield Doc/Fest discussions with their website. The public can only see the discussion with Heather and Fleur, logged-in D-Word Members will also see the Sheffield F2F and general discussions. All data remains with us on d-word.com.

Just a thought - unless I'm missing it, shouldn't there be a one-line tag saying what the D-Word is on the page you link to? I know people can find out by going there (here), but surely there's room for "the longest-running online community for professional documentary filmmakers" or whatever.

It says that when you're not logged in, John.

This is strange. Marketing and Distribution is not showing up in any of my topic lists, though I can get to it through the search...

sean, the universe is saying just go out and make your film and don't worry about where it ends up ;-)

maybe this just my browser...if I am reading a topic and click to view someone's profile, I can't get back to the topic using the browser's back button. I have to follow the 'topics' link and then try and remember which topic I was in.

Must be a browser setting... something that tries to reload stuff instead of just going back...?

What combination of OS and browser versions are you using?
