This is only for the 3 Public Topics that are searchable (Mentoring Room, Recommended Docs, Help with The D-Word). All the Professional Topics (currently 44 of them) are closed off to the internet.
I created a D-Word film project page for "One October." I'm listed at the Producer right under the title of the film. But if only one crew member can be listed, I want our Director/Producer/Editor Rachel Shuman to be in that spot. Is there a way to change this?
Hi! I'm looking for filmmakers in and around Washington D.C., and was wondering if there's a way to post by location. Thans!

Hi Garret Savage - sorry this took me so long to reply to. Our film pages are not super advanced, and the way it chooses which credit to show at the top is by looking for a credit that is exactly "Director" or "Producer". Unfortunately if you list a credit with multiple roles like that, the system doesn't match it for the top credit on the page, so if you want Rachel to show up at the top, simply change her role to just "Director". You can probably add a second credit for her other roles.
Hi D-Word! Great platform here, much respect!
I want to make sure I post in the right thread. I'm seeking recommendations for an apt producer for my brain science doc-in-progress. Thanks!

Your post in Works in Progress is in the right place, Matt.

Can someone please help me make a post?
As far as I understand, I am listed as a 'Professional' and should be able to post.
When I enter into a 'Topic' and look down to the 'Teal' bar at the bottom, there is no way to click on something that will allow me to make a new post.
I just can't understand why a this site is set up un such an unintuitive way. Is there really no there way?
Kai, are you trying to post from a phone, tablet, or computer? If you are looking at a non-archived topic, you should be able to scroll to the bottom and you will see a box which says "New Post." It won't be on the teal bar but just above it.
You may also want to confirm you are at the end of the topics. Each page holds about 25 posts so it could be that you are not at the last page if it is a very popular topic such as Cinematography. One way to check is to select the Jump To drop down (which is on the teal bar) and select "Jump to Today." Then try scrolling down and seeing if you see the New Post box.

Hi Erica, thank you for the reply.
I have a way forward. 1 hour later.
In the event that this can help others:
After clicking into the 'Topic' you want, you then go down to the 'Teal' bar at the bottom and then click on the 'Jump to' window and then click: 'Jump to today.'
You will then be taken to current posts where you can make a new post.
* I will make a note about this and email it to myself so that if in a year I need to post again I will know what to do if I have forgotten.
