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.

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?

I've designated a different photo as the primary one, but it doesn't seem to be changing in my profile or posts. Is anyone else having this issue?

Never mind. It took about 20 mins to take effect, but now it seems to be working.

Which one is you?

It's my most successful production, to date!

That's a beautiful kid you have there, Ethan, even if he does look like he's about to throw a punch at the paparazzo.

Co-production, surely, Ethan?

Ethan – your browser had probably cached the old picture.

Robert – Do you mean Sean Adair's page which is still out there but hasn't been updated in 10 years?

i suppose I do. Thought there was something a bit more recent. guess not.

Well, we can always start a new collection in a dedicated topic where people simply post their documents as attachments. Do you think we'll see the same spirit of sharing as back then?

hard to tell. the d-word has changed a lot since those days.

Is there that place where posted documents are attached?

Also, how would I search for posts by
posted by a particular person
cross topic topic (e.g. ITVS)?
If such searches are possible.
Thanks!

Linda, have you had a look at the list of tags? (that baggage tag icon). We create them as we go along, so that list can get quirky. I don't know if you can first assemble all the posts for any one tag, and then do a word/name search of just those. Lemme try and I'll get back to you in a few seconds.

Just tried: it works very well. Look at the top of your page, select tags, decide which one you want to look through, double click it, all those posts will appear, then click advanced search, if you are not seeing a place to write the name of the posting person. ( "Post by ....", something like this.)

There are several "ITVS + Something else" tags, too.


Linda Blackaby

Aha. And duh.
Thank you Joanne.
I once wondered about tags and that little symbol but failed to adequately investigate. Very helpful. Thanks again.

posted documents: use the "attach file" as if you were attaching the document to an email in most email pgms. If you are looking for posted documents only, I have no idea if the search engine does this. I haven't looked that closely


Linda Blackaby
Fri 19 Nov 2010Link

Yeah, it's the latter I was thinking of, like a Borgesian archive. I will try to explore it. Thank you again.

Linda, the Advanced Search lets you search for posts by a particular person. Or you can go to a person's profile and click on the link to view all their recent posts.

You can attach documents to every post but there's no specific way of searching for attachments only. Is this something we should implement?
