Post New Help! Forum
I wanted to have a forum where people can post urgent help questions. Time is money when you're trying to figure something out fast or shooting on location. Sometimes other crew members might be waiting on you.

I would like to request that everyone try to keep an eye on this forum and to help fellow members as quickly as possible when they are in a pinch. You might need help one day yourself. :)

I am also starting to think that it might be a good idea to make a contact list here, where people would list their areas of knowledge (Mumford, Canon, Nikon, Milapse, After Effects, etc) and be reachable (only in an emergency) via phone. Do you guys have any thoughts on that?

Great idea.
Phone contact for me will be a little awkward for me for the next 7 months or so alas, but I love the idea of a specific help forum for quick answers.

Yep, good idea! I hope you accept collect calls from Europe in the middle of the night :)

How about a member place inside the forum, where people can post their cell phone number and maybe their location/address? I would e.g. be happy to be a host if one of you visits Switzerland!

Moderators, I would like to have a policy of moving these urgent "Help!" topics to an appropriate other forum once the "urgency" has sort of worn off.

thanks!!

I think just use your best judgement as to whether the "urgency" of the thread has passed. 4 days would probably be about right in most cases. also, be careful NOT to leave a "shadow" topic here. i need to figure out how to delete these four shadow topics now without deleting the whole threads. :(
