The thread on Documentary Films appears to be stuck, aiming at an (empty?) next page, with no room to post.
In reply to Marth Christensen's post on Fri 10 Dec 2010 :
Sorted! Thanks, Marth.
I have a proposal for a tagging convention that can be implemented without any other site changes.
On Tom xxxx's post on Fri 17 Dec 2010 in Legal, I applied this tag: DOCUMENT/LetterOfAgreement/Work-for-hire
"DOCUMENT" being in all caps says that there is some sort of contract or document in the post or hidden. It will make DOCUMENTS easy to visually sift out of the tag clutter when doing a tag search under "D."
Slash ( / ) separates the document title, which is "camel-cased" (big and small letters separating words, like the humps on a camel).
The second slash separates a specific topicâ€”with individual words connected with dashesâ€”if there is one. Sometimes, like with Tom's post it is only a paragraph or a specific wording that has been posted and not an entire document or contract.
Using a consistent convention (this or another), will make it easy to find what we're looking for and not waste time opening posts that only have a paragraph when we want, say, a whole producer's contract or participant release.
I think a document archive would be nice, but this is something we can do immediately. Anyone with any useful contracts, releases and so on could place a post in the appropriate topic, paste the document in the hidden section and tag it for others.
Today the lines in the email digest are endlessly longâ€“â€“no wrap. Seems that if poster doesn't hit 'return', the line goes on forever.
Very hard to read!
What software are you using to read your mail? I receive digests every day and they still look fine for me. But if you can tell me what you are using I might be able to see if I can solve your problem.
Am I the only person who is seeing all the D-word topics in a big alphabetical list now?
Working here – you can organise by category, posting date or Topic Name – click at the top underneath Discussion Topics
oh thanks – I didn't even realize those options were up there. Must have clicked it by mistake with my crazy iPad.
Hi, where can I find information on d-word on making a master DVD using Compressor and iDVD? I don't think my Quicktime file to iDVD workflow is yielding the highest quality HD product for replication. I feel like I've lost something in the output, but I can't be sure. Thanks.
You can ask that question, but I would suggest asking it in the Final Cut Pro topic, which seems to be where the Apple software post-production questions end up. This topic is for silly people like me who can't figure out how to navigate this extremely well-designed website.
