How do you paste a vimeo movie directly into a post. It's not clear from any of the instructions.
Nigel, it seems like some topics have the Attach Video boxes at the bottom and others don't. Not totally sure why, myself. Peter Gerard, are you out there?
Also just noticed that topics that don't have Embed Video capabilities do when you go into Edit This Post mode. What's up with that, Peter?
Doug, in an attempt to prevent an inflationary "myspacing" of our beautiful D-Word, we haven't switched on the Embed Video feature for all topics (as you should know). Email me if you can't find the switch.
For the time being, Video Embeds are switched on in those topics where they make the most sense. But we're open to reasonable requests. :-)
in response to a personal request from Boston-Red-Sox-lover Aron Gaudet, i've decided to change my profile picture back to my own ugly mug. so i went to my profile page, clicked on "Pictures", and made something else my primary photo. however, the photo has not changed at all for my postings. does it take a day or so to kick in? or is this a bug?
I am seeing your ugly mug. :-) Maybe the old photo is stuck in your browser's cache or something?
I am seeing it too now, but when you posted the original question (20 hours ago according to the tag) it was indeed stuck on your team shot.
guess there must be a delay when updating profile pic...
Funny, I just came in to ask the same question. Can't seem to change my profile picture here even though I changed it to "Make Primary." Even tried logging out and back in again. No different. I'll sleep on it and see if I am different tomorrow.
Same problem here? I made the new pic primary, but no change. When I logged out and back in, still no change.
Maybe the d-word topic cops are investigating allegations of copyright infringements with profile pics?
Fair use, officer, fair use!
oh no, mine is now fixed!
Faster, faster, I need to get to a meeting.
Like I said before, this is because your old picture was still in your browser's cache. Try reloading the page or emptying the cache. It's all fine.
Sorry that last line was a caption for my new profile pic, not a reference to my problem with the profile pic, which is indeed cured.
16 marks to Ben – clearing the cache cures the pic profile blues
D-Word use to work on my Blackberry, but now i cant seem to log in, anyone else having this problem?
In reply to Ron Osgood's post on Mon 23 Nov 2009 :
Only works for those with the premium d-word membership.
Ron, you can easily edit your profile. Just take out your birthdate under Bio.
I removed the date of birth for you, Ron. And just for the record, David was joking.
Andrew, does the problem persist? If so, can you give us more specifics? Anybody else with a Blackberry out there?
