Well, we'd need another fundraiser for that sort of thing.

For the time being, please use our Tags feature to mark useful posts (or attachments).

Perhaps we can refine the way we try to use the Tags feature.

Could we agree perhaps on some standard tags for the most commonly used or requested kinds of documents?

And perhaps suggest a more standard way of tagging the posts that contain these documents? For example, I often see questions about CONTRACTS (and I believe there are a number of specific kinds of contracts), but don't know if all sample contracts get tagged as such or if they are tagged at all.

The thread on Documentary Films appears to be stuck, aiming at an (empty?) next page, with no room to post.

I have a proposal for a tagging convention that can be implemented without any other site changes.

On Tom xxxx's post on Fri 17 Dec 2010 in Legal, I applied this tag: DOCUMENT/LetterOfAgreement/Work-for-hire

"DOCUMENT" being in all caps says that there is some sort of contract or document in the post or hidden. It will make DOCUMENTS easy to visually sift out of the tag clutter when doing a tag search under "D."

Slash ( / ) separates the document title, which is "camel-cased" (big and small letters separating words, like the humps on a camel).

The second slash separates a specific topic—with individual words connected with dashes—if there is one. Sometimes, like with Tom's post it is only a paragraph or a specific wording that has been posted and not an entire document or contract.

Using a consistent convention (this or another), will make it easy to find what we're looking for and not waste time opening posts that only have a paragraph when we want, say, a whole producer's contract or participant release.

I think a document archive would be nice, but this is something we can do immediately. Anyone with any useful contracts, releases and so on could place a post in the appropriate topic, paste the document in the hidden section and tag it for others.

Hi guys,
Today the lines in the email digest are endlessly long––no wrap. Seems that if poster doesn't hit 'return', the line goes on forever.
Very hard to read!

What software are you using to read your mail? I receive digests every day and they still look fine for me. But if you can tell me what you are using I might be able to see if I can solve your problem.
