That's what I meant Nigel – or as you suggested Ben, a note in the advanced search spot at the top of the page.
Help, Suggestions, Future of The D-Word
Difficulties with The D-Word? If you can't find the right answers on our Help page, please post in this topic. Ideas for future D-Word releases or projects can be posted here as well.
I'm not sure which topic to use to post this info:
I have received an email from colleagues in Cuba about a fabulous small, independent festival there called the FESTIVAL DE CINE POBRE. The festival is held annually in the town of Gibara, in Oriente... and that town was absolutely destroyed by hurricane IKE. The festival organizers have sent an international call for assistance of any kind, addressed specifically to the international filmmaking community. I want to post this info somewhere on D-word so that perhaps we can brainstorm about fundraising to help out this festival, the filmmakers who run it, and the people of Gibara.
Please let me know if this is appropriate for D-Word, and if so, where to post it. Thanks!
Has anyone ever delivered to A&E? If so, can you email me at email@example.com, please? Thank you!!!
I have just finished an MA course in documentary film making. I made my dissertation film in a prison in the UK. The prison director has praised the film but has said that she does not want the film to be show publicly.
What I would like to know is – can women in prison give consent if they sign release forms. Some of the women were mentally ill – does this mean the prison would have to sign the release form as their legal guardian.
I would appreciate any advice on this issue,
That's a question for the Mentoring Room . As I said just before, this topic is for help using The D-Word's software.
Is there any way I can retrieve a copy of my Submission to Become a D-Word Member? I haven't received a response yet, but either way, I just wanna keep it for my records. Is that possible?
You can access the information in your profile.
John has just responded and made you a member.
If I hit preview for a post I've written it never loads.
What's your browser, operating system, versions, contents of posting?
I'm still having the problem with the preview function. I'm using Firefox 184.108.40.206 on Windows XP and it happens regardless of topic, length or content – flattery, sarcasm, dumb puns, even buying drinks. I see the loading wheel spinning, but it never actually loads. If I stop it, I lose everything I've written.
Maybe it thinks I'm so brilliant I should post directly without second thought, but I doubt it.
I'm on Firefox 3.0.4 on XP and can't reproduce your problem. I'll notify Peter. In the meantime, consider updating your browser...?
I agree, the best thing would be to move up to Firefox 3. I recently trouble-shooted several friends' PCs and they were using Firefox 2 and Win XP and could no longer access some websites. This appeared to be after a recent upgrade in Firefox, which judging by the release dates was 220.127.116.11. Upgrading to the current version of Firefox 3 fixed the problems.
Interesting. I just clicked on "check for updates" and it said there were none available. Maybe they're just not available to ME. I'll go to the website. Thanks for the tip.
This is a test of the Firefox 3.0. Damn, it worked! You guys are gods. I wonder why 2.0 never told me there was a 3.0 update. Perhaps that's why there is a 3.0. Thanks everyone.
For some reason Firefox 2.0 just checks for updates along the 2.0 line and it probably updated itself 18.104.22.168 which is what I'm guessing caused your problems... It is strange that they wouldn't automatically encourage people to upgrade to 3.0...
It's annoying to have to type in my full login every time i check out the site. I don't know too much about cookies and all that, but Safari remembers my login info for most sites- any way I can do that with d-word?
Yes, especially for those of us who are iPhone users too. I like to look at D-Word on my phone when I'm waiting somewhere, or have time to kill out and about, and it's a real drag from that perspective. Fancy designing a D-Word iPhone app, Peter? :)
a few things mark...
1) you should ask production questions here: Mentoring Room
2) the "Help" section is only for technical issues with this site
3) you should sign up with your full name (not just "Mark A")
good luck with your postings!
