As a pilot project to spread the D-Word among documentary professionals, we're sharing our Sheffield Doc/Fest discussions with their website. The public can only see the discussion with Heather and Fleur, logged-in D-Word Members will also see the Sheffield F2F and general discussions. All data remains with us on d-word.com.
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.
Just a thought - unless I'm missing it, shouldn't there be a one-line tag saying what the D-Word is on the page you link to? I know people can find out by going there (here), but surely there's room for "the longest-running online community for professional documentary filmmakers" or whatever.
This is strange. Marketing and Distribution is not showing up in any of my topic lists, though I can get to it through the search...
sean, the universe is saying just go out and make your film and don't worry about where it ends up ;-)
maybe this just my browser...if I am reading a topic and click to view someone's profile, I can't get back to the topic using the browser's back button. I have to follow the 'topics' link and then try and remember which topic I was in.
Must be a browser setting... something that tries to reload stuff instead of just going back...?
What combination of OS and browser versions are you using?
OS 10.4.10 and Firefox v.1.
It doesn't happen with other websites.
Your browser is very old. I'd recommend upgrading. It sounds to me like this might happen only if you've posted before you click off the topic. I'd recommend not using the back button. Instead, when you click the member's profile link, hold down the Command (Apple) key and the link will open in a new tab or window.
Drat, I knew I'd end up having to upgrade something.
hey i had a post disappear too! just like marge! oops, marj!
(i was telling riley it was fine to feel good about yankees fans feeling bad, so maybe some new yorker sabotaged it)
Marj just hit Preview instead of Post. I guess that's what you did, too?
Ben - actually I updated a post on my problem here: http://www.d-word.com/topics/show/94?post=126164
if you get problems like that in the future, please email me date and time (including timezone) of the error ASAP and I'll check the logs...
Not sure where this should go so here it is in Help. Seeing as how there is a photo album thread is it possible to have a similar one for on-line video links?
Any chance of moving the navigation links that are below the "New Post" section to above the "New Post" section? Since I use the "next" function far more often than posting a new message, it would reduce the amount of scrolling I have to do to get to the "next" link.
We'll have video attachments as soon as we leave the Beta stage behind us, Nick.
John, I would like to have your problems... :-)
Judy, I moved your post to the Distribution topic:
is there any way to make the post box and the edit box bigger? if it's not too hard?
use a magnifying glass or (on a mac) go to system prefs > seeing > zoom
Or use Safari 3.0 (Mac or PC) which has resizable text-boxes. However, it might break the rest of the layout...
