I have been thinking lately about making a template, from a synthesis of sources, which would enable me to work up a structured script based on the template. So the template would be called (with my special way of working structure) and I then use that to write the script.

My source is a table that sets out a full beat by beat story structure for a feature or telemovie and it would be great to have it on screen informing my writing as I go.

I made a very simple template by making the source material into a Screenwriter project and saving it as a Template. It is kind of OK but pretty agrarian. I would like to be able to make it more sophisticated. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

PS love the new phpBB3 look. Really smooth.

Indeed. Now if only they would DELETE the spam. I am sure it is hurting their business. I have a PHPBB3 board myself and found a way around getting spam. I'd be happy to share it with Write Brothers if they like.

I'd LOVE any help on preventing this spam. I have to clean it up practically every day. Any help you could give would be appreciated.

Cheers,

What is required (for spam prevention) is a board where admins can see a list of posts everyday and delete individual ones.

Also, the standard "no URLs until you have made X number of posts etc."

Not aware of any technology that incorporates all these.
