I've been informed that the server hosting The D-Word had a brief outage from 00:39 GMT today. I hope nobody was affected by this. Apologies if you were.
I'm looking into the birthdate bug...
And just to let everyone know, our host is going to move our server as a precaution against another outage. So the site will be down for about 5 to 10 minutes sometime between 05:00 and 0:700 GMT on Monday 3 March. Apologies again, but this should cause minimal disturbance and will insure further stability.
Those of you concerned about celebrating the wrong birthday can now adjust your profile and rest at ease. I fixed the bug and it will now let you choose any age between 12 and 100. If your age falls outside of those bounds, please let me know and I'll expand the options.
One hopes that someone makes it necessary to expand beyond 100. smile.
I have a request. It would be nice to be able to spell my last name correctly here on the mighty D. One is not allowed to have an apostrophe (and probably hyphen or any other common symbol used in names), and it's not permitted to have two capital letters in one word. I'm sure there are a few other D-Mc's, Mac's, or O'Whatevers who would also appreciate. I suppose I could simply sign each and every post, spelling it correctly. But the D-Cops wouldn't like that....
Very Truly Yours,
Lenville, this will be fixed with the next update of our software.
Okey doke... thanks!
Lenville, I just figured it was jealousy, that they didn't want us to have too much pride – kinda like "Hey Laddie, why should you get to have 2 capitals letters in your name?" But alas, it's only a software thing...
Well, I just put an apotostrophe into Lenville's name, and if you don't watch out, I'll make you a Mc'collum.
Wow, thanks, Ben! And it didn't hurt a bit...
or M'CCollum. Wow, that'd be 3 capital letters in my name. And an apostrophe. I feel like a Scots-Irish-Vulcan!
Well, apologies to Vulcan and everyone affected by this. I hate it when names are messed with. Peter will fix this ASAP.
No worries Ben (at least for me), considering how good this site is, this is the equivalent of fine tuning/polishing an edit. Now can you imagine what would happen if you made the name field editable like the location?
Btw, many thanks to you and Peter for the continued work that you put in on the site. Very much appreciated!
It's fixed now. I don't know how Ben snuck that apostrophe through four hours ago...
But this change leaves it in our own hands to judge how to capitalize our own names....
That's pretty cool. I already corrected Boyd's name. (As for the others, please do it yourselves! Just promise not to give us ALL CAPS, OK?)
Groovy, guys... thanks!
Can anyone recommend a fixer / production manager in Peshawar Pakistan.
Wrong topic, mate. Please post in Classifieds (Public or Members-only).
For some reason, I can't get the search function to work. This may have been dealt with somewhere, but... I can't get the search function to work. Any suggestions? (I have cookies enabled, btw).
What are you searching for? You need more than two characters in the search.
Well, I was looking for "Schoeps", "Inconvenient Truth", "pmw ex1", things like that.
The search function appears to work fine. What browser (version) and operating system (version) are you using?
I think I'm the only person on the planet that doesn't know how to use the hyperlink feature. Can someone 'splain how I can type a word and have it link to my trailer on youtbe.
I searched the pages and found nothing, so I swallowed my pride (not so hard once you get use to it) and am asking for help
