Doug:
Do you knwo about the court ruling re Berlinger and "Cride"? They have ordered that he give all footage to CHEVRON to help their case?
There is a letter from the IDA with filmmakers signing up in support. Can you/should you/ will you post? Not sure where to put it on the site...
see you soon in NYC I hope.

I'll be sending out an email about it soon, Deirdre!

Deirdre, a number of well-known doc filmmakers have signed the letter but The D-Word is hanging back and letting the IDA take the lead in terms of getting mass signatures. We've told them we're ready to put out a mailing containing the letter to our membership at a moments notice.

The Berlinger case is also being discussed in our Legal Corner .

Can anyone tell me why the "New Post" box at the bottom of the list of messages doesn't show up on my screen?

Vicki, if that's the case then how did you put up your last post?


Vicki Vasilopoulos
Thu 27 May 2010Link

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?


Ethan Isenberg

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


Jo-Anne Velin

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?
