I was previously an enthusiast at the D-word. I posted a doc proposal document file on the forum on Sat 1 Aug 2009. The document contains personal information and is showing up in google searches as well as other sites that are hosting it and making it downloadable to the public. Please please remove this post and the document from your site. My name is Michael Birnberg and the document is In Good We Trust. Please let me know when this has been done. Thanks

Michael – As explained across the site, Enthusiasts can only access our clearly labelled Public Topics. These may be indexed by search engines.

If your producer applied for this, she would qualify for full Member status. Our Members-Only Topics for documentary professionals are private and you can't find a word from them outside The D-Word.

We usually don't delete anything here, as every post is part of a continuous conversation. So we urge everyone to think twice about what they're saying online.

I have made an exception in your case, as the document attached to the post contained potentially sensitive financial information. It's all gone now.

However, search engines only re-index sites every now and then. So the information may remain in their cache for a little while and show up in results.

Hello, I am new to D word. I can not figure out how to post a question. The help place says to go to the end of category of posts and there should be a space to post a new question, but when i do fhat for the Research/archival section, I do not see the post area. Thank you so much, Delaney

Doug Block

Should be able to post there the same way you did to post your question in this topic, Delaney.

Ben Kempas

Make sure you're on the last page of the topic you want to post in. The page numbers at the top or bottom of each topic will get you there. You'll find the text box in the same spot as in this topic.

There was a great article link on this board which I came across but then I cannot seem to find again. It was called something like, "The 8 best ways to open a documentary". I think it was written by a documentary production site. It was a great piece and I was wondering if anyone recalls the link if the could please repost.

This Topic is primarily for questions related to D-Word, but a google search came up with this link
