Hi, YouTube Embed seems to be broken. (They probably changed their API again, thank you very much Overlord Google).
I want to post some awesome videos from DokuFest!
how can I kill the colour backgrounds on my own display, please? I understand this might be liked by others but they are too much – totally saturated – and I find them irritating when I am trying to read. Thanks very much.
It should only be a light gray on the posts you've read, Jo-Anne, and white on the latest since you were last on. Are you sure your display is working properly?
Oh, and yellow on your own posts.
I mean the borders, Doug – I have been getting background around the texting boxes, with very strong colours. This is very, very hard on my eyes. The off-white beige that I see around the text boxes in this topic is comfortable. Sometimes too much graphic takes you out of the words.... Maybe there is a way to just check an option button to make it b+w (like on cameras) – that would be the easy way not to deprive others of the strong background colours if this is what they prefer.
Something's clearly wrong, Jo-Anne. The borders should appear as a very light plum color. Hopefully Peter Gerard or Ben will weigh in on what might be causing the problem for you.
It's looking like it's back to normal, i just checked some topics.... thanks.
but it was there a couple of times I checked in and the colours were different for different topics, John. It made no sense...anyway, it's gone. Ya.
Marketing and Distribution seems to be STUCK.
An unread message is not reachable. "Read next page" comes up but the link returns me to the top of Topics.
A glitch in our host's server, I'm afraid. We're on it (but slowly).
Hello, newby here. I'm looking to build a team for my doc, based in NYC where is best place to post this ? Also, I'm looking for an affordable place that can convert DV tapes and Betacams and other dinosaurs into quicktime files – again NYC. Where would I post this?
Welcome to The D-Word, Maria. You already chose a good Topic for for the tape conversion question (Production ) – if you're looking for a crew then that's one of the very few exceptions to the "no double posts" rule as you can choose both Professional Classifieds and Public Classifieds (if you so wish – the latter is Public, the former for Professional D_Worders only)
I was thinking of posting a query about exec producing a doc, and didn't see a good "home" for the question among all the topics. There is of course a topic for directing. I wonder if there's a quorum of members (dare I speak NewYawkees and say "minyan") on d-word to justify a separate category?
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.
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!
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!
