I actually read The D-Word on my iphone, but using the email digests that I get each morning in my inbox. I've got some other updates to work on soon, so will look at the feasibility of using the email layout for users with mobile browsers... I can't promise a release date though!
D-Word on your iPhone? That's like watching Avatar on your iPhone.
I tried to post with embeded video in the topic 'funding (europe or elsewhere)' with the help of attach file option. But that didn't work. It says 'done with error on page' . Is there any restriction on video attachment? my file size is 87 MB and its .dat file.
I think embedding video's is restricted to certain topics, but the techno guys better answer that.
I'll wait for Peter to confirm, but I think the limit is much lower, probably about 10% of what you were trying to upload. Secondly .dat can be just about anything, a text or graphic file. There are more useful video formats – best of all is to upload to your own website or Youtube/Vimeo and paste a link – we don't have the resources right now to host large video files on our server.
I have a friend who is looking to hire a local cameraperson in Nairobi. I am new to d-word and wanted to know the best place to post a message for this. Classifieds? Can anyone lead me to the right place? Thanks
Classifieds is exactly the right place, Christopher. We have both a member's only and public classifieds, and you could post in both. The Classifieds are actually the only place where we encourage double posting.
I was previously an enthusiast at the D-word. I posted a doc proposal document file on the forum on Sat 1 Aug 2009. The document contains personal information and is showing up in google searches as well as other sites that are hosting it and making it downloadable to the public. Please please remove this post and the document from your site. My name is Michael Birnberg and the document is In Good We Trust. Please let me know when this has been done. Thanks
Michael – As explained across the site, Enthusiasts can only access our clearly labelled Public Topics. These may be indexed by search engines.
If your producer applied for this, she would qualify for full Member status. Our Members-Only Topics for documentary professionals are private and you can't find a word from them outside The D-Word.
We usually don't delete anything here, as every post is part of a continuous conversation. So we urge everyone to think twice about what they're saying online.
I have made an exception in your case, as the document attached to the post contained potentially sensitive financial information. It's all gone now.
However, search engines only re-index sites every now and then. So the information may remain in their cache for a little while and show up in results.
Do you use The D-Word on your mobile phone? Would you like to?
We are considering developing a mobile-optimized version of The D-Word, but would like your input. Please fill in our survey now:
Hello, I am new to D word. I can not figure out how to post a question. The help place says to go to the end of category of posts and there should be a space to post a new question, but when i do fhat for the Research/archival section, I do not see the post area. Thank you so much, Delaney
Should be able to post there the same way you did to post your question in this topic, Delaney.
Make sure you're on the last page of the topic you want to post in. The page numbers at the top or bottom of each topic will get you there. You'll find the text box in the same spot as in this topic.
There was a great article link on this board which I came across but then I cannot seem to find again. It was called something like, "The 8 best ways to open a documentary". I think it was written by a documentary production site. It was a great piece and I was wondering if anyone recalls the link if the could please repost.
This Topic is primarily for questions related to D-Word, but a google search came up with this link
I would like to change my d-word password. How do I do it?
In the upper right hand corner click "My Profile".
enter the new password twice and go way down for SAVE.
Excellent Marth! Thank you.
Thanks John, I believe that's the text from the article I read.
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 simply cannot type. I have typing ADD. CRUDE, is what I meant.....
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 .
