You're right, Vivian, it's strange that we don't have a Producing topic. Production (Nuts and Bolts) and The Legal Corner usually covers much of that ground, but maybe we should have our own Producing topic.

A suggestion for the new upgrade, assuming it's not already in the works: program the site to add a title attribute when using the "samplehotlink :http://sampleURL format to generate hotlinks in text so we see where the link is pointing on hover. Seems odd to not have it. (Ha, had to go back and remove one of the quotes because it tried to make it a hotlink. Doh.)

It's already there when topics are linked to (as in John's post above).

Just a thought.

Good thought, Mikal. But please post again in the special 15 For 15 campaign topic. That's what it's there for. Well, among other things.

Hi all, what is the deadline for making the 'Email Digest' of topics? I posted in professional & public classifieds two days ago and didn't make the next day's digest. I did notice there was a post made after mine in the digest but there was only one post included for that topic not five. Thanks so much!

Did you contribute $10 to the Scottish film board?

Hi Cheree,
The email digest is personalised for you and only includes posts you haven't read yet, so your own posts will never appear in your personal digest. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply, makes total sense!

I was hoping to be the hero and put you over your 15 for 15 goal at the last minute but I'm too late. Alas, I couldn't even log on to the campaign. I'm logged on to d-word and then asked to log on again. When I try, using my d-word password, it says I'm using an invalid password.

I think I need the Donating for Dummies instructions. I meant me, not you, of course.

Mark – You're not too late, we're still raising funds towards future running costs.

In the player, you need to use your Distrify password if you've previously used them – not your D-Word password!

If you don't remember it, there'll be 'Forgot Password' link right there.

Just curious:
What's the diff between these 2 topics: "Documentary films" & "REcommended Docs"?

Recommended Docs is a public topic, for folks to recommend great docs that they love, particularly to a documentary loving public. Documentary Films is a professional only topic for ongoing conversation about films, critiques, spirited debate etc. If you look up at the top of any topic, you'll find a short description that captures the gist of what it's about.

Got a birthday present from Peter yesterday: "99+" post counters for The D-Word to make catching up less intimidating. You can also easily post multiple attachments now, as shown here. Just a wee taster of the big upgrade that's to come.

Ben – not sure if it's related but in B&G and Photo Album, posted photos are showing upside down in the thread but right side up once you click on them. Just thought I'd flag it. Might be user error.

I try to go to My Topics after logging in and get a message that says I'm not authorized and won't display them. Was it something I said?

It's what you haven't said. You haven't been posting enough. We miss you.

We'll email Peter G and see what he has to say, Mark. But have to agree offhand with John's analysis.

I was thinking of sending a note to d-word professionals in Oakland & SF. Is there a way to send a memo to those folks en masse, or export a list of emails, or would someone have to send an individual email to each person?


Erica Ginsberg

Vivian, if this is about the F2F for the 15th anniversary, I can send it for you. Just email me what you want in the email.
