DPC Winner - DPC #275 'The Best of 2018'

"The Aliens are coming (cleaned version)" by Fred_S

I'm pleased to announce the photo which won the tough competition for the best photo taken in 2018. I say "tough" because the runner-ups were just a whisker behind - and not withouth the reason.

So, please joins us in the below thread to congratulate Fred_S for his great achievement:

the winner of the DPC #275 "The Best of 2018"

Photo: "Bonding" by svjetlana

New episode in our long-lasting contest story has just appeared, having the word "touch" as the subject. As usual the task is simple (is it?) - explain the meaning of this word (be it a noun or a verb) with your pictures.

All rules are set out in the announcement thread, where you can also add your entries:

DPC Winner - DPC #274 'The Color White'

"Ethereal" by bigsi

I have not been taking care of DPCs for a very long time so when it happened that I needed to post this announcement I opened the DPC Winner thread just to got amused by the winner photo. What an excellent piece of artwork. And the runner-up is no worse either - hard time choosing between the two. Outstanding!

It is real pleasure to announce results of this DPC - please feel free to join me and congratulate thos ewho made it:

Dyxum gone HTTPS

15 February 2019 - Posted by MiPr, in Admin
Admin Note
As you may have noticed Dyxum switched to HTTPS which should improve security of the forum (e.g. see this discussion thread). This change is not as straightforward as we would wish to be - some problems may appear.

If you notice anything unusual, like one of Dyxum web pages not being served at all or not being served over HTTPS or anything out of norm then please let us know by dropping a PM to one of AMAEs or by sending an e-mail to admins (link at the bottom of Dyxum pages) or by replying in the above linked thread.

With regards to the above - there is one thing which we cannot easily fix - so-called "mixed content" warning. The symptom is that Dyxum web page is marked as insecure (e.g. exclamation mark over padlock on address bar in the browser) and checking details shows a warning along the lines of "this web page is not secure because some elements were not sent over secure channel". This is usually caused by hot-linked images, e.g. images posted by Dyxumers (we are photography forum, aren't we? ;)) - if they are hot-linked using HTTP URL then the above warning appears.

As I wrote - there is no easy fix for this: either we would need to go throuh all posts in the Dyxum database and replce all occurrences of "http://" with "https://" risking that we will break some posts (either because we will literally break it or because the picture itself cannot be served over HTTPS; doing such action on the backed would be quite enormous task in itself) or ... live with that. For now we tend to stay with the second option ;)

So, enjoy new (more secure) Dyxum and - please remember to report any problems to AMAEs.

Thanks!
