Socially, and for professional purposes, DMDb realizes it could be helpful to have the flexibility to log onto multiple devices at once. For that reason, we do not restrict the ability to do so.

Credits serve the important purpose of acknowledging the extreme talent, effort, and skills of all creatives, associated personnel, and specialists who perform a wide range of tasks to create digital media.

DMDb is what happens when the worlds of social networking and searchable digital database merge together! Not only is DMDb the source that brings valuable insight as to who, what, where when and how digital content was created, but it is also the essential source to empower its members to launch, grow and monitor their careers from a digital media perspective. And DMDb doesn't just allow you to connect with your peers; you can also use DMDb to market your talents and promote your brand through its Social Gateway.

Settings are a series of account variables that a member can adjust to make their DMDb provide a more customized experience.

Comfort Setting Toggles allow a member to make their site experience more comfortable for them to use, with settings like Restricted and Sleep; how your pages appear on the screen; and what info is visible to other members.

Restricted Mode Toggle is a feature that allows you to limit content or media that may be offensive to a user. Restricted mode is activated via password protect.

Sleeping Account Toggle allows members to have their account go fully dormant for a specified amount of time. Sleep allows a member to put your account to sleep for 1 day, 3 day, 15 days, 1 month, 6 months, 9 months, or 1 year.

Ghost Mode Toggle allows members to be online but take some time for a little privacy and choose when they want to return to public view. You can set this preference toggle to let you “hide” for any number of hour up to 24 at a time.

Light/Dark Theme Toggle allows members to choose their text and screen background presentation.

Gateway Members who discover inaccuracies that cannot be edited on a Title (e.g, Cast or crew credit) have the ability to Challenge the entry.

There is a Challenge History Page for each title that will show in reverse chronological order all challenges and determinations filed for that title.

All Gateway members can issue a Challenge.

To initiate a challenge the member will go through the title in question; Go to the options button (…) to open the drop-down menu; Choose “Challenge” and complete the required information fields.

Once the Challenge information fields are complete, a $100 fee must be submitted.

A member can initiate as many Challenges as they see fit.

If Challenge is upheld, the fee is returned. If Challenge is rejected, the fee is retained by DMDb. If the Challenge is Undetermined, the fee is returned.

A strike is an identifying mark assigned to a user as a consequence for incorrect or unfair submissions, or for a rejected Challenge, as determined by a Challenge review.

Three strikes will automatically suspend a member from posting entries to the database or from filing challenges for a period of 6 months. After the first suspension, if a member receives another three strikes, the member will be suspended from posting entries to the database and from posting Challenges to the database for a period of one year. Should a member receive 3 more strikes after a second suspension, the member will be banned from posting entries to the database and from posting Challenges to the database permanently. However, the Gateway Membership fee will continue to be due.

After a completed form and fee are submitted, a Challenge is manually reviewed by DMDb staff. At completion of review process, there are three possible determinations: Challenge Upheld – entry will be removed. Challenge Rejected – entry remains and is marked DMDb confirmed. Challenge undetermined – entry remains but NOT marked DMDb confirmed. Once a determination has been made regarding a Challenge, that information will be permanently locked by DMDb and is no longer able to be Challenged.

Once a Gateway Member, you can either communicate thru Social posts; private messaging; and email (you will have your own DMDb Email address.)

While you cannot interact with non-members within the DMDb community, Gateway Members can use the DMDb email service internally or externally, just like any other email provider.

Yes, you can choose which information you would like to be public by going to comfort settings

Titles and Lists can be shared with any member(s) you choose. Conversely, individual list items set to private will not be shared or publicly viewed.

If a user is harassing or bullying through a Social Post or Private Message, you can click the 3-dot Options icon and report the offending action.

You can block any member from messaging you. However, even if you Block someone, any information or communications you have publicly will remain public and can be viewed by members you may have Blocked.

Your Gateway backskin page is available for displaying either a static image or a short video, and that media can be uploaded with your media or with media obtained from another member (this is known as Gateway Member Backskin Rental for Advertising). While displaying your own static image on your Gateway backskin is totally free of charge, posting your own video on your Gateway backskin comes with a nominal monthly charge.

While a member can post either a static image or a video on their Gateway backskin, you can also opt to advertise your backskin space as leasable for other members to advertise on. Go to Account Settings and toggle the “Allow Advertising” option.

Simple--DMDb has provided an exciting way for Gateway members to earn income! If you elect to lease your space to another member, you get to negotiate your rental price, with the majority of that fee going into your own pocket!

A “For Rent Ticket” icon will be displayed at the top right corner of a Members Gateway Backskin page if that member has chosen to lease their Gateway page to others. Click that icon.

There is no direct charge from DMDb to a Gateway member who elects to lease their Gateway backskin space to others. DMDb’s innovative arrangement allows for you to retain 80% of the negotiated rental fee, with DMDb receiving the remaining 20%. The rental fee amount is decided by you, with DMDb setting the base minimum charge.

There are several paths you can take to rent another Member’s Gateway backskin page. You can: • Hire an Influencer. • Display media you’ve created. • Display media from an outside source. Gateway Member page backskin advertising works much the same way DMDb submission guidelines do for member data entries in general. Any type of acceptable, lawful advertising media is acceptable as long as it conforms to DMDb’s Terms & Conditions. Your backskin advertising can be static or video, with a maximum duration of one minute.

If you have your own image or video displaying on your Gateway backskin and you want to announce that your backskin is available to be rented by others, you can also display the “For Rent Ticket” icon on your Gateway page by going to your Account Settings and toggle the “Allow Advertising Override” option. When another member clicks the displayed icon to advertise on your Gateway backskin, your rental calendar will display “available” to other members, allowing them to “override” your displayed media.

Any and all fees paid for your own video display are nonrefundable.

While most influencers have multiple streams of revenue - sharing affiliate links, making money from creator funds, launching their own businesses, or starting a subscription service - by far the most popular is brand sponsorships, in which a company pays an influencer to promote or incorporate their products.

An influencer is someone who has the power to affect the purchasing decisions of others because of his or her authority, knowledge, position, and/or relationship with his or her audience. They tend to have a following in a distinct niche, with whom he or she actively engages. Influencers in social media are people who have built a reputation for their knowledge and expertise on a specific topic. Influencers can be an important tool because they can create trends and encourage their followers to buy products they promote. It is important to note that these individuals are not merely marketing tools, but rather social relationship assets with which brands can collaborate to achieve their marketing objectives.
