Here's a little bug, Peter, in case you don't already know about it. Underscores at each end of the word italicize the word, but it doesn't work to try to italicize part of a word. E.g. to highlight a difference in emphasis such as "_re_volution vs. evolution." It renders with the underscores instead of "re" being italicized.

I suppose that is by design... The underscores to italics feature is part of an open-source text-processing plug-in we are using, and the rules are designed to work in most cases while ideally not breaking special formatting (such as urls). If we made it always italicise characters between 2 underscores, we could make some mistakes, which is why the feature is designed to only italicise if there are spaces around the underscores. If you've followed discussion here about the strikethrough feature you'll see why it could cause problems to allow formatting of partial-words.

I'm working on an outdoor sport documentary series, my second series actually. Both have been for non-profit organizations, so often no permit is required by the US Forest Service, US Parks, BLM, Etc. However, some representatives will flat out refuse to give a permit- say for following 1 person through a wilderness area with a small camera and tripod and two crew members. I have three frustrations with the process- 1. Responses are inconsistent- sometimes yes, sometimes no. 2. There are no rules that apply to non-profit- they only talk about commercials where there are paid talent or products being sold, and 3. Isn't that a violation of free speech to say you can't document someone's experience?

Nikia, this topic is for questions with our discussion software. Your question could go into topics like Directing , Production , or the Legal Corner .

[Oh, I just saw you already posted in Legal. So no double-postings, please...]

Is there a way to sort the members list by location? I'd like to see who else (if anyone else...) is living in Santa Fe.

Go to the People Page and click on "Advanced Search" Seem to be 6 of you living in Santa Fe.

okay, so I couldn't figure it out. Once I've clicked on "People", I have only "search". If I click the upper 'search' button without entering any info, I get 'advanced search' option, but then I'm not on the 'people' page, but have a list of topics to choose from. Both searches I've done from here ('tags and content' or just 'tags') don't get me the list...do I have to be a full member perhaps?

This may be slightly off topic – but I tried to join the D-Word "network" on Facebook. It asked for a valid email address, which I supplied. But nothing worked.

The Network is only for people running The D-Word who have a d-word.com email address. You could join The D-Word Group .

By the way, I made sort of a surprise visit to Peter yesterday and checked on his progress with the next milestone of The D-Word software. Everything is on track, film profiles and embedded video look great, and most new features will be ready for our 10th anniversary.

Dear Sirs – Can you tell me where I would post incriminating photos from Indie Film Week? Thank you.

The Photo Album?

Or in the fifth trashcan in the alley behind the boarded up store between the two Chinese herb shops around the corner. Please deposit the photos in a fastened purple envelope which should say "Mr. Jones' x-rays" in Sanskrit on the cover.

Can I remove or edit a post of mine? I thought I saw someone do this once but looked through the help topics and can't find my way...

Laura Moire Paglin

Just be sure to tell everyone which one it was so that we can read it first before they remove it. :)

Marj Safinia

Sorry Gregory. You can't edit or remove after 15 minutes or if someone has posted after you.

How do you paste a vimeo movie directly into a post. It's not clear from any of the instructions.

Doug Block

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?
