Recommended Docs is a public topic, for folks to recommend great docs that they love, particularly to a documentary loving public. Documentary Films is a professional only topic for ongoing conversation about films, critiques, spirited debate etc. If you look up at the top of any topic, you'll find a short description that captures the gist of what it's about.

Got a birthday present from Peter yesterday: "99+" post counters for The D-Word to make catching up less intimidating. You can also easily post multiple attachments now, as shown here. Just a wee taster of the big upgrade that's to come.

Ben – not sure if it's related but in B&G and Photo Album, posted photos are showing upside down in the thread but right side up once you click on them. Just thought I'd flag it. Might be user error.

I try to go to My Topics after logging in and get a message that says I'm not authorized and won't display them. Was it something I said?

It's what you haven't said. You haven't been posting enough. We miss you.

I'm getting the same error message, actually...

I was thinking of sending a note to d-word professionals in Oakland & SF. Is there a way to send a memo to those folks en masse, or export a list of emails, or would someone have to send an individual email to each person?

Vivian, if this is about the F2F for the 15th anniversary, I can send it for you. Just email me what you want in the email.

It should worky if you take out the https and replace with http.

Is it possible to change the "99+ new posts" setting back to show me the actual new post count? I understand that some people have some sort of psychological block with seeing a big number there, but I actually like having that information. Helps me decide which thread to catch up on first.

Yes! It seems way more overwhelming to see "99+" on every topic instead of actual numbers.

lol, you think so, Mikal?

For me, that is not the issue. The issue is when I read on The D-Word for about an hour then come back later and it is still 99+. Then I read and read and go back to the home page and still 99+. Dang dang dang.

But it is definitely better than 1200 posts to read. At least 99+ gives me hope that I will catch up :P

With the new features to be added to The D-Word, users will have the option to turn the 99+ on or off, Andy :)

Hi. I came her through a space-warp port opened up by Erica Ginsberg. I was told to say I can't edit my topics in my settings page. I get the message:"Topic not found. Either it does not exist or you do not have permission to view it."

I just tried it again, btw, and got this message: "You have posted too much idiotic bullshit today. This is your punishment. Go back to work."

That was an idea for The D-Word revamp. (Not that you can read this)

We'll e-mail Peter in case he isn't checking in here. I know Mark had the same question a few weeks back.

One request for the d-word redesign: When I copy and paste some text from d-word into a word doc, I don't just get the text- I get a background color that makes it very hard to read. If there's any way to make it so that copy and paste only copies the text, that would be great.

Have you tried Paste Special in Word (from the drop down)? I find that is usually a workaround when pasting weirdly formatted text.

I posted in Shameless Self-Promotion a couple of days ago and now I don't see my post at all – did I fail to actually post it or was it deleted for some reason?
