how to locate zones.

I needed attention on a thread. So, the mods moved or changed my zone to:
General Multi-Media Software,
Digital Music and Video,
Digital Living Software,
Video Editing

With a new question, I am not finding but one of those zones.
I use the search tool for "video editing" and it generates a list on the right, but video editing is not on the list.
I'm not finding Digital Music and Video any where either.
Under software, I see one proper zone.
Is there a link to a page that list all EE zones?
Thanks,

The zone list for the questions is the same as the list at the top of the page.  If you click on "Digital Living", it will show subcategories that you can choose from.  Some of the subcategories have subcategories in some places shown by the little orange -> at the right.

I just tried to create a new question.
On the was browse zones.
I looked in internet, multimedia applications and digital living software and do not see these anywhere:

Digital Music and Video
Video Editing

I see a music zone, but no video zone.

I choose misc. many times, because the search for the proper one is not found.

"Digital Music" and "Multimedia Applications" are under "Digital Living".  'video' and 'video editing' bring up a number of suggestions but no specific zone.  Pick the most likely ones of those.  If the mods know about zones that aren't listed, you can "Request Attention" after your question is posted and ask for more.

I used multimedia applications on a question.
Then asked for attention and the moderator moved the question to:
1. General Multi-Media Software,
2. Digital Music and Video,
3. Digital Living Software,
4. Video Editing

I'm really not finding 1-2-4.

Maybe the moderators have more access.

If you go back to your question and mouseover the zone listings, you'll see that the zone URLs are not exactly the same as the text.  You're not going to find zones with exactly those names.

Look there on the zone line.
I did not choose those 4 zones, the moderator did after I asked for attention.
As you see:
General Multi-Media Software,
Digital Music and Video,
and Video Editing,
are three of them.

Here are the actual zone pages from your previous question:

General Multi-Media Software = http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/MultiMedia_Applications/
Digital Music and Video = http://www.experts-exchange.com/Digital_Living/Digital_Music/
and Video Editing = http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Multimedia_Programming/Video_Editing/

>>Is there a link to a page that list all EE zones?
Click on the EE logo at the top of the page to get to the home page, then just below that is a link to Browse All then expand each heading.
There are no TA zones that moderators can that see members can't
What you will find is some link titiles don't relect the exact name of the TA they refer to

General Multi-Media Software is a good example:

The EE link name is Multimedia Applications and the TA's new name reflects that, however Mods, Admins and others are not always completely up to speed on what the Zone names get changed to!  If you look at the page header (the name your browser displays in its tab) you'll see it still has the older Zone name.

Sorry about the confusion it's part of the continual update of zones on the site to better reflect what members actually use them for.

They've been there since Digital Living was created so at least 3 years.  Just the names have changed subtly fairly recently.

Thanks, Nick, it is a little confusing to not have the names exactly match.
