My film partner keeps trying to register at dword, and though the site says she's been sent a verification code, none was sent. She's tried several times. Any suggestions?

In reply to Doug Block's post on Tue 30 Jun 2009 : Hi Doug, I realize that your post has aged, but is the contact information still good for the insurance agent you recommended? I'm interested in quotes for E&O and production insurance. Thank you!
Thank you, Doug! I got in touch and have submitted some information. Quote forthcoming. I let them know I heard about their agency from you on this forum.
Having gone through many pages, I found 90 out of 100 professionals are from USA. There could be a reason for it. I suggest The staff should do some thing to make a global forum to accumulate more members internationally.
Ananda, thanks for your suggestion. More international diversity is something which has long been a major goal and effort of The D-Word and we are always open to suggestions of how to expand not only the number of internationals counted among our professionals, but engagement of people from many countries as active participants in these discussion topics.
I am not sure what you mean when you say "global forum" – could you be more specific as to what you mean by this?
Also to clarify, The D-Word has no staff – the five hosts are all volunteers (three of us are based in North America, two in Europe, and one in the Middle East). In terms of outreach, we do not currently have an operating budget to be represented as an organization at various international events – our outreach is all by word-of-mouth not only from the hosts, but by members. So please encourage your colleagues in Sri Lanka and elsewhere to join.
Hi, YouTube Embed seems to be broken. (They probably changed their API again, thank you very much Overlord Google).
I want to post some awesome videos from DokuFest!
how can I kill the colour backgrounds on my own display, please? I understand this might be liked by others but they are too much – totally saturated – and I find them irritating when I am trying to read. Thanks very much.
It should only be a light gray on the posts you've read, Jo-Anne, and white on the latest since you were last on. Are you sure your display is working properly?
Oh, and yellow on your own posts.
I mean the borders, Doug – I have been getting background around the texting boxes, with very strong colours. This is very, very hard on my eyes. The off-white beige that I see around the text boxes in this topic is comfortable. Sometimes too much graphic takes you out of the words.... Maybe there is a way to just check an option button to make it b+w (like on cameras) – that would be the easy way not to deprive others of the strong background colours if this is what they prefer.
Something's clearly wrong, Jo-Anne. The borders should appear as a very light plum color. Hopefully Peter Gerard or Ben will weigh in on what might be causing the problem for you.
It's looking like it's back to normal, i just checked some topics.... thanks.
but it was there a couple of times I checked in and the colours were different for different topics, John. It made no sense...anyway, it's gone. Ya.
Marketing and Distribution seems to be STUCK.
An unread message is not reachable. "Read next page" comes up but the link returns me to the top of Topics.
A glitch in our host's server, I'm afraid. We're on it (but slowly).
Hello, newby here. I'm looking to build a team for my doc, based in NYC where is best place to post this ? Also, I'm looking for an affordable place that can convert DV tapes and Betacams and other dinosaurs into quicktime files – again NYC. Where would I post this?
Welcome to The D-Word, Maria. You already chose a good Topic for for the tape conversion question (Production ) – if you're looking for a crew then that's one of the very few exceptions to the "no double posts" rule as you can choose both Professional Classifieds and Public Classifieds (if you so wish – the latter is Public, the former for Professional D_Worders only)
