As you all know, Cam was one of the persons who established Dyxum - we would dare to say that he was Dyxum - his wisdom, authority, friendship and sense for others helped to create the spirit we have on our forum. His words were the ultimate guide for the whole AMAE team and something that will live with each of us.
If you would like to share share your feelings please follow to Cam's farewell thread ...
It seems that the Eggciting Journey Around The World ended unexpectedly - we lost track of Mr Egg and his sibling ...
But there is still some hope that being tired with the journey they both just made a short break to charge their batteries and return on track with usual vigour and energy.
Anyway, if anybody have seen them or knows where they are - please leave a message in this thread.
"A new legislation that has been rushed through parliament with no thought has now reached royal assent. This legislation means that photographers and illustrators alike will see their artworks legally taken and used for another's own gain.
Unless your works are registered or plastered with a watermark, anyone can use your copyrighted work for their own commercial and personal gains provided they have made a small effort to search for the original owner. If no owner can be found, they are free to do with it whatever they want."
Threating? Yes, it is! And despite that this only concerns UK law it might affect all of us - all around the world. So, if you are UK-based photographer please do not hesitate to sign the petition to nip this broken idea in the bud. You can find relevant Dyxum thread in here (some previous info is in here).
Spreading "the word" among fellow photogs is not a bad idea either ...
Just to let you know: the Dyxum Rules And Guidelines have just been updated slightly - to better express our concern with copyright issues (not that we have too much problems with that). Anyway we believe that this is the right time for all of us to jump right to the
==> Rules And Guidelines <==
in order to refresh our knowledge :-)
Our AMAE team (Admins, Mods, AlphaEyes) has been extended with two new AlphaEyes: MichelvA and happyjack.
Please check this introductory post for all details.
||Some of you probably remember the story behind our Dyxum Golden Patch which is awarded to each Dyxum Photo Contest winner: to keep the long story short let's only mention that the idea came from Confusedapollo who decided to donate his free time and his skills to produce Golden Patches for us.
Unfortunately a few DPCs back we run out of patches ...
But no worries - they are back although in slightly different form (thanks to Octupi who had a nice idea how to join Minolta's "blue dot" with the previous design).
We hope that you'll like this new incarnation of the award (let's call it "Golden Patch MKII" ;-))
Do you like getting postcards? Some people even like collecting them. Quite a pleasure to get some views from around whole world - directly in your inbox, directly from your friends. So, if you like look around no more since we have just started Dxyum Postcard Exchange 2012! Please see the DPE 2012 registration thread for all details (and to learn what the DPE is about).
One of the most troublesome parts of preparation of Dyxum Weekly Exhibitions is, as we call it, "harvesting of photos" - just a nice term to describe the process of getting candidates for the Exhib, which then get scrutinized to obtain about 20 "best of the best" shots which are published every week on Friday. The whole process is described in here.
Now, we believe that it would be great to get some help from the whole Dyxum community. Nothing tedious. Nothing problematic. Please just take a look at this thread where we described whole concept.
