Thank you for your feedback on this subject.

Actually we have, in the past, sent out mass mailings, not only to DGA members but selected IA members as well. These not only serve to promote the Crew-List System, but the forum as well.

We are confident that as the database grows, the use of this among the many tools we are providing and continually improving upon will see greater use over time.

We are always interested in feedback from our members as well as industry followers that can improve the database and the services we provide.

Is there any way of creating more use of the forums? Especially the job leads forum.

Maybe sending a mass email to the entire database and the membership of the director's guild and anyone else you can think of to advertise the site and the forums.

Please be aware that the above conversations were in reference to the Original Crew-List system.

The new system has an entirely different protocol for login.

If you are having problems, in most cases this is caused by one of two situations.

1) You do not have cookies enabled in your browser, or
2) You applied for membership recently, and your Profile and Credits have not yet been approved by the Administrator.

Any other problems should be reported in this forum or by contacting The Administrator

First make sure that you are inputting your Username and Password correctly. Remember that BOTH are case sensitive.

Second, it may be that when you first joined, you did not fill in the Required fields, and click on the Modify button at the bottom of the page.

When we monitor the system, if we see a database record with no information, we assume that it was made by someone who registered a Username and Password, but changed their mind about continuing with their profile for one reason or another.

We then remove the record which also renders the Username and Password as "used", so that there will be no further abuse.

If this has happened to you, please re-join. If your Login is not allowed, try a different Username.

Remember -- One word, no spaces but ( - ) and ( _ ) are allowed. So if you want two words in your Username use the underscore or dash character in between.

IE: Joe_Smith or Joe-Smith are acceptable!

I hope this solves your problem.

I applied for a user name and password, but when I try to login, I get a message "Wrong Password".

What am I doing wrong?
7  Support Forum / Support Forum / What are the Weird Characters in my Profile? on: November 07, 2007, 11:59:22 AM
You may have noticed some unrecognizable characters in your "Modify Profile" and "Add Credits" Forms.

The system recognizes certain characters that are need for program functionality and automaticall converts them to their ASCII equivalant.

For example:
The character ' is converted to '
and " is sometimes converted to "
The most common one is similar to <BR> this tells the system to convert your carraige return.

You may ignore these and replace them if you like, but the system will always do the conversion where appropriate and you will see them again.

When you view your Profile Page, wa la! they are invisible!

We hope this solves the mystery!

This is because all "first time" submissions are reviewed prior to approval!

This could take from several minutes to several days.

Please be patient. as long as your profile contains the appropriate data, it will appear shortly!

Thank you for your patience.

10  Announcements to Crew-List Members / Announcements to Crew-List Members / New Feature on: November 07, 2007, 11:53:21 AM
After months of development, we have integrated the new Crew-List Manager.

This required restructuring the Departments and Job Classifications and assign a Budgeting number code to each. This replaces the Alphabetical System that was previously attached to the Departments. These codes do not appear in the output pages, but we left them in the Profile Editor Dropdown Lists to assist in locating a job within any particular Department.

This also helps to align the Departments and Job Classifications in the proper order according to Industry Standards.

What this New Tool does, is allow any member to maintain a separate crew list and assign it's members to any Department or Job Assignment they desire.

The final output is an Industry Standard Cast and Crew List which can be printed from your browser.

You may upload a Company Logo, to the Header and include the usual Production related information or what ever contact information you like.

You don't have to be a POC to use this feature.

Why not use the system to keep a list of Contacts you would like to keep abreast of.

Maybe it's a list of others in your Job Classification you'd like to Network with, to share information about your craft. Or perhaps it's a list of potential members you would like to pitch yourself to.

Whatever your use, we know that this new feature will be a valuable tool for you to take advantage of. SRC="">

We have decided to allow Crew-List Members to upload an image on the Crew-List server without charge because we appreciate the value of our users being able to see who they are dealing with. This is especially important for On-Camera Talent of course.

We must however impose a strict limit on both file sizes and image dimensions for a variety of reasons.

The data size limit is primarily to keep page load time at a minimum, and the dimension limits are to maintain uniformity on the pages.

You may upload a Headshot or other photo of yourself, or a Company Logo if you like but Banner Advertising is strictly forbidden!

Any images uploaded which we deem (in our discretion) to be promotional in nature will be removed, and the Member will be subject to possible removal and banning from the system.

Thank you for you cooperation in conforming to our Photo/Image Policies!

We have provided a complete discussion in the IndustryCentral Auctions+ service regarding Internet Images. To view this page Click Here.

A direct message to you From Haskell Wexler
Dear Fellow Crewmembers:

I am very excited about the news from the coalition supporting the tariff petition. This is a possibility. The Commerce Department accepted the petition on December 4th and have already sent the studios questionnaires to detail their production activities in Canada.I just want to clarify one misconception about this petition, it's goal is not to impose tariffs but to remove the subsidies. Removal of the subsidies would 'level the playing field', at no cost to the American taxpayer. If the Commerce Dept. decides to take the case, one of the first things they will do is bring the Canadians to the table to discuss whether or not the subsidies are legal, if they prove to be illegal, the Canadians can withdraw the subsidies. Should they refuse to do this, then and only then would a tariff be imposed.

I hope you will support this petition, we need our jobs back, the economy needs us working. Please download the petition from the website, sign it, get all your friends who are involved in the film business to sign it and mail it back as soon as possible. Time is of the essence as the petitions have to be counted and sent to Washington. We can do this, you can do this, act now to save your jobs.

I would love to hear some ideas on how American Producers can be encouraged to keep US Productions in the States without totally destroying the Canadian Production Industry.

All too often we hear about projects with subject matter indigenous to a particular US city which are taken to Canada based on the financial incentives. Creative "adjustments" were required in order to "cheat" the obvious shortcomings of the locale.
