Thanks to everyone who let us know that Photobucket images were not loading properly on some pages. The problem seemed to be mostly limited to HTTPS requests; Dreamwidth maintains a list of known high-traffic image sites that support HTTPS, so that our secure content proxy service doesn't cache them unnecessarily. Unfortunately Photobucket seems to have recently changed their site configuration such that HTTPS requests aren't being served as expected, and we've now taken it out of our list of "proxy-exempt" sites.

If you continue to have issues, make sure you're not using HTTPS Photobucket links. It's a bit counterintuitive, but if you use HTTP instead, it will be automatically transformed on our end to an HTTPS link that uses p.dreamwidth.org.

Hope that clears everything up for now! Let us know if it doesn't...

Transformative Works and Cultures

“This issue of Transformative Works and Cultures seeks to address that perceived gap in the fan studies literature by extensively engaging with the Sherlockian fandom that dates back to the 1890s. The essays in this issue shed additional light on the explosion of the fandom by taking a look backward, examining Sherlock Holmes fandoms (for they are all fandoms) through the lens of historical context or with an eye to the fandoms' sometimes fraught cultural divisions.”

Transformative Works and Culture's issue 23 is out, and it's all about Sherlock Holmes fans & fandoms, from historical to present day. Share your favorite articles! https://goo.gl/bOEODC

Hi all

I'm running a vidshow at this year's Vidukon, and the theme is COMEDY. I'd love any recs you have to offer! I'm looking for any vid that makes you laugh out loud - the source itself doesn't have to be a comedy (often the funniest vids are for pretty serious shows) but if there's a vid that makes you laugh, I'd love to hear about it :-)

Please let me know your recs at my journal, here!

Reminder--seeking volunteer vidders!

Hey there, vidders! Whether you've ever attended Vividcon or never attended Vividcon, we would love to have you jump on board this year's Vividcon vidder auction!

Check the auction post for details, but basically it's, "I'd like to make a vid for someone who wants one!", and then we auction your skills off to an interested party, and you partner up with them to come up with whatever vid best suits you both.

Please comment here or email me at dorindafandom@gmail.com if you have any questions or would like to participate!
