Question to the higher authorities :)

I see lots of Arab Filmmakers (and/or Arab American filmmakers) who can benefit from crowdfunding websites are having trouble using them in a proper manner. I followed the conversation on D-word with Jennifer Fox and her co-producer and the guidelines Mike shared (I think it was Mike or maybe Mitch?).

Big Q is, I would like to write an article about these -mostly failed- attempts and highlight SOME of the most important points mentioned during the conversation with Jennifer and from the Funding topic on my own blog. Will that be okay? I will surely quote D-Word :)

Absolutely, Niam. Go right ahead.

Just remember: it's not D-word or even D-Word. It's "The D-Word" :-)

We a production house named ‘Namaste Media’ of Nepal has so far been making some TV programs n documentary films. Now we r in a process of telecasting a weekly half an hour program titled 'The Journey'. With the unique vision this documentary program is to explore our nation Nepal [which has lots of its hidden beauty] globally,to show how rich it is when it comes to nature n culture. Through D-word i would like to invite my filmmakers fren interested to shoot in Nepal.

Good to know, Mahesh, but this is the wrong topic to post your notice. This is for people who need help navigating The D-Word. As an "Enthusiast" you're best putting this up in the Public Classifieds topic.

Ok, this has been bugging me forever, so I am going to ask: how do people do posts that reply to MULTIPLE other posts in sequence?

Is there a way to search "People" by U.S. state as a D-Word enthusiast? I would love to offer assistance to other doc filmmakers working in the area surrounding Charlotte, NC.

Easy-peasey.
Just try "advanced search" under "people"

Marth, when I go the "People" tab on the home page, there is no Advanced Search for people, just an Advanced Search for posts. Maybe the People Advanced Search is just available to Professionals, not Enthusiasts?

When I get on the D-Word home page, all the topics are clumped together in a single list rather than separated in to the usual 5 or so boxes. Still color-coded, though. Thought it might be my most recent Safari update, but it's doing it in Firefox also. Did I accidentally set some sort of preference I shouldn't have?

Rob, could it be that you need to select one of the options to organize your topics just above where you see the topics listed (I think it's Topic/Category/Date) – the Category one is the one which separates them into the usual 5 or so boxes.

Advanced people search is currently only available to "Professionals".

And the option you select for Topic view (Topic/Category/Date) is remembered for your next visit. So if you end up with the wrong view, just change it by clicking at the top of the list and it will stay that way.

I've been posting on D-Word for a while now. (One of my favorite online discussion boards.) I decided though that there must be a better way to access my recent posts without trying to remember where I posted. I looked at Help and there seems to be a way but, silly me, I can't figure out the directions or finding the links on the home page to access my posts. Is there something I'm missing?


Rob Rooy

Erica and Peter, thanks; that was easy! Incidentally, Peter, after almost three years here, I should state the obvious: this is the simplest, most user-friendly online discussion site I've ever used. Just excellent work. Thanks!

I want to add to Rob's note of appreciation of this discussion site.

I recall maybe some 13 years ago when Doug proposed that we use the internet for AIVF board members to communicate & give updates on our different committee activities, etc... and I was not the most supportive of board member buddies... oh well. live and learn.

Just got my first iPhone.

It's coo and all, but every time I go to The D-Word, it automatically fills in www.d-word.com/iphone.html – and then it says that there is no page at the address.

Try as I might, I cannot get the browser to go to d-word.com, it always puts in that /iphone.html

Surely, people use the D-wrod on the the iPhone – what is the deal?


Bill Jackson

Hmm. I mostly use my iPhone. That never happens here (iPhone 4).


Ben Kempas

Never heard of this. Can you override the auto-fill?

Yeah, I had to really trick it by typing in a full URL to the login page. Once I was logged in, everything was good. I guess this has something to do with setting up the funky network at my school, but I thought just maybe that there was some platform sniffing script malfunctioning.

Thanks, Ben :)

my heart bleeds for you i-phone operators. My Nokia C-3 fills in nothing, usually rings when someone calls me and has survived my muddy fingers for almost a year. You too can have one for just £30
