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

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

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.

Thanks,
Dino

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

In the upper right hand corner click "My Profile".
enter the new password twice and go way down for SAVE.

Doug:
Do you knwo about the court ruling re Berlinger and "Cride"? They have ordered that he give all footage to CHEVRON to help their case?
There is a letter from the IDA with filmmakers signing up in support. Can you/should you/ will you post? Not sure where to put it on the site...
see you soon in NYC I hope.

I simply cannot type. I have typing ADD. CRUDE, is what I meant.....

Deirdre, a number of well-known doc filmmakers have signed the letter but The D-Word is hanging back and letting the IDA take the lead in terms of getting mass signatures. We've told them we're ready to put out a mailing containing the letter to our membership at a moments notice.

Can anyone tell me why the "New Post" box at the bottom of the list of messages doesn't show up on my screen?

Doug Block

Vicki, if that's the case then how did you put up your last post?

Vicki Vasilopoulos

Yeah, that's what's bizarre about it. The "New Post" box appears in this topic (thankfully), but not in the FCP topic or Directing, for example. Go figure.I'm at a loss...

You need to make sure you're on the last page of posts to continue the conversation.

Right you are, Ben... I'm in the middle of editing, and in my haste I obviously overlooked this simple fact. I blame it on the full moon...

Is it possible to delete old posts? I couldn't find an option to do so. I posted in the public classified section recently (it was a success – I filled the position) but I'm getting some weird spam as a result.

The basic rule is not to include your email address in any postings in our public topics, as these could be harvested by "robots". Registered users will always be able to find your email address in your profile, which the robots don't get to see.

I just introduced myself as an Enthusiast and tried to stick a picture in the little box to the left. I went back to check and the picture has wound up in the body of post and it's giant. Or is that just the way I see it?
Can we move the picture to the side or make it go away altogether? Thank you.

Hi Ann. You can click on "My Profile" at the top of a page, then My Pictures, near the top of that page. From there you can upload an image to your profile. It will then appear in the little box to the left. If you upload multiple images, the one you Make Primary will appear.

Doug Block

Ann, I guess we'll just have to change your status from Enthusiast to Narcisist.

Kidding ;-)

where are the files located that people posted sample proposals etc? Dan was hosting them – did they go away?
