Difficulties with The D-Word? If you can't find the right answers on our Help page, please post in this topic. Ideas for future D-Word releases or projects can be posted here as well.
John's right, you should be compressing your uploads down to maximum of about 1280 pixels wide or tall and the file size should be under 1MB. I think that will solve the problems you're having.
how come there's no option to create new topics/threads? or am i missing something?
No, you're not missing anything. This isn't a threaded bulletin board but a series of moderated discussion topics, which makes things more conversational and contributes to more of community feeling.
That said, if you have a suggestion for an additional topic feel free to let us know.
Hi folks, just a heads up, our hosting provider is doing some maintenance next week, so we'll have a brief downtime around Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 8:00p.m. EST.
Hi there, for some reason I keep having problems updating my Current Location in D-Word.
When I make my edits to that field and save my work, it doesn't reflect my changes, even after a day or two.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
Where are you trying to update it, on your profile or above a post?
In my profile, but then I just tried to update it in my post as well, without success.
Seems to work fine for me.
I also edited your last post to show a new location, and it works. Then went to your profile to change the default there, and it seems fine. Please try and change it back to what you would like there...
any chance to delete my last posting in WORKS IN PROGRESS? will be disabling the link and did not want to mislead anyone to it. Thanks either way.
Hey kids, I was trying to embed this video in views on news and it was rejected.
Did YouTube change it's API or something?
They've changed their URL format. I've just pushed an update that should fix this. Please try again.
i have a question about getting advice on pitching nonfiction projects to cable networks. which is the most appropriate topic to post in?
I updated some info on a credit called Sparlo but it seems to have disappeared from my profile page as a result. what have I done?
Thanks in advance,
I'd love for there to be a way for individual D Worders to 'save' particular posts for future reference – kind of the way one can put items in a 'wish list' or 'shopping cart' or 'favorites' list. Any possibility of that?
It was much discussed in our special redesign topic, and it's on the list of things we would like to figure out if possible.
There's a little bookmark-tag icon on every post. If you click that an option to "add a tag" appears. Click "add a tag" and then you can type in "favorites". You will then be able to find all these posts by clicking Tags at the top of the page and then click on your "favorites" tag. You can of course use different tag names to organise your favorites.
Taking into consideration the overall slow / unreliable internet here in Liberia – I've been having some trouble accessing the D-Word site over the past couple of months. Back in February, I posted something, and while looking for my responses, I could only seem to 'fully load' the site every couple of days... until suddenly, I couldn't load it at all. Basically, my computer (and the three other computers here I've tried it on) kept saying that the page had loaded, but all I could see was blank white. Today is the first time I've been able to properly visit the site since then. ... Anyone else ever had this problem? Could it be something about my IP address (I know some sites block IPs from places like Nigeria...)? And/or some setting I need to change? Any thoughts would be great – as I would obviously love to keep being able to access the site in future!
Sorry to hear, Arwen. Hate the idea you can't access us. Hopefully, Peter will read this soon and weigh in with his thoughts.
Thanks Doug – I hope so too. However, good news is that three days in a row now the site has worked for me! So at least that's a positive development.
Hi Arwen, I would guess that it's something related to your connection rather than The D-Word specifically. Have you had similar problems on other sites?
The Sound and Music topic seems to be ginked (is that a word?). Maybe too many simulposts about an hour ago. Can't seem to reply or get rid of the "read 1 new post after yours."
It seems to be fixed now, Bill. All hail Peter!
I goofed. I was in this topic, not that one. It's still stuck.
Hi, I've tried to change my profile picture so it looks more professional and have a foto in my group of fotos here labeled "April Tan" that I have selected as my main foto, yet my old profile foto remains.
Can we fix that? I wonder what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!
Image is everything and I want to project an image of diligence, truth, the Kino-Eye and hard work.
Mikhail is one of my heroes indeed, but I saw Ballet Mecanique today and I wonder if old Dziga had seen it.... more than a few similarities....and it was six years previous....
I have a question about up converting from SD to HD on a documentary that I filmed in 2000, but just completed. I don't know how or where to post it. Thanks for your help
I wonder if there might be way to make sub topics – for example, DSLR cinematography under the cinematography topic. The cinematography topic follows technological developments – it is all about the C300 these days – and I feel very low tech asking DSLR canon 5D questions.
DSLR's have a big enough user base to warrant it, I suspect.

If I'd like to solicit feedback on a trailer for my (completed) film, what would be the appropriate topic for that? Marketing & Distribution?
