whoah! that's cool.
Help, Suggestions, Future of The D-Word
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.
Marj - as I said elsewhere, I think it doesn't like the "&" sign. We might have to rename the topic the Doc Bar and Grill.
Riley - I suspect this has to do with your sign-up for a third account after we already imported two different ones. Seems like Peter needs to do some database clean-up...
you are probably right, Ben.
sorry about the headache.
bigger photo didn't work.
Ben I don't see the blue question mark... maybe only the hosts have it? I see the reply, link, and tag icons only.
Also, I'm all for a strikethrough function, but could it be changed to some other code-- so peeps using dashes don't do it accidentally?
Last but not least, D-Worders got mad memory skillz!!!! Yes, that's a pile of bananas my artist pal Doug Fishbone assembled in NY. (He's done them all over the world, actually.) It was a photo I had handy on my desktop. But if the peeps want the eyelid pictures, I can certainly oblige.....
Margot - blue questions mark in the top right hand corner of this yellow posting box
I'll fix the formatting thing in due time. It's not meant to
strikethrough unless there's white-space on either side so that you can still have a double-dash.
(Hidden section for the technically interested...)
So, this is a question re: public/private topics. This topic is public, right... but if there's a link in here to another thread that's in the private area, what happens when non-members click on that link?
is there only a "Public" "introduce yourself" topic. Perhaps a private one would be good?
In reply to Margot Roth's post on Thu 13 Sep 2007 :
If Enthusiasts visit a link to a Members-only topic they will not be allowed in.
Chris - Two "Introduce Yourself" topics would be too confusing for everyone. That's what we agreed on back in March when we discussed the specs with the community. And I think it works really well the way it is now.
Having said this, we didn't just merge the Intro topics of the previous Forum and Community conferences and made it public. We've always said that everything that was originally posted in a private topic will stay private. So if you need to access the old "private" Intros, they are here: OLD D-Word Community: Introduce (members-only link)
Are you all aware of the My Topics options? You can totally customise your D-Word experience now by having an individual selection of topics and receiving email disgests (which still look a bit rough right now but we'll improve that).
Awesome that links automatically get created, without having to do this anymore: <link>. Well done!
The <> was only to prevent long links from breaking when being wrapped.
I think you should upload a photo of the Westy as your profile pic, Danielle.
You think so? Kind of small. But it is the only photo I have that is recent. Truthfully I'm not ready to put up a photo. Maybe later this week though...
Suggestion: on each particular topic page (like here, in Help) a little pop-up menu that lets gives you a list of all topics so you can jump directly to another one without going back to the Topics List Page.
I would also suggest, though I know it's been discussed, that a private intro topic would be nice nonetheless...i don't want to read every into from the enthusiasts and i imagine not everyone wants to introduce themselves to the enthusiasts; i don't know. i don't think it'd be confusing--it could appear in the social topics for the private one and in the public space for the public one.....
But frankly, as it all is now, this is very cool and i'd be happy with it with no changes at all..............
Peter, Ben, don't see anything in the Help section about doing html within a post. So, how does one do things like bold and italicize within the posts here?
Click the blue question mark immediately to the right of your location >>>
I'm shocked, Doug. Have you not been paying attention at all? ;P
well i'll be durned. we were so focused on getting the Help section done that i didn't even see this.
I've got a question. I tried posting a link earlier that has underscores in it. The new D-Word reformatted the link. It took the underscores out and made one of the last two words italic.
Here's the link:
How would I post the full link without the formatting engine touching it?
Sorry Basil, This is a "known issue" that I'm going to fix as soon as I have a chance...
