  • Website not visible correctly when mullvadvpn is active
    I can't figure it out why some websites (and app) are not correctly displaying things when mullvadvpn is active. The one website (and only, so far) that is giving me problems is which doesn't load pictures. Same thing with the app on Android. I'm using default settings and I've tried a bunch of servers, no fix so far. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Hey team, I’m a new bike owner and new to the community. This 1979 Suzuki GS550 is my first build ever. Any suggestions, advise, how to books, or video series would be greatly appreciated!

  • I got my first DSLR! The D5600. Very happy with it so far. Bought it gently used with the 18-55mm and 70-300mm. I’m very new to this and was wondering where would I be able to find good resources for beginners. I eventually want to do outdoor scenery shots, so thinking of getting a 35mm lens too
    Here's another idea for you. Jump over to and in the search area put 50mm 1.2 and look at the photos. Then change the search to 50mm 1.8 and look at the photos. Maybe add 85mm 1.8 and look at those too. Seeing the difference (or lack thereof) may be helpful. You can click into a photo and usually see the make/model of the camera and lens being used.

Popular websites written with Ruby include Basecamp,, GitHub, 500px, and many others. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • Hide CGI (or whatever those images are) or other alternatives
    The images are "Second Life" CGI, and they are fairly disgusting to me as well. There are other photography sites:,,,,,, etc. Smugmug is the only one that comes close to the searching you can do on Flickr. Source: over 2 years ago

But, you can also embed images from Flickr, which is legal as long as you don't change the embed code: Or 500PX another popular photo-sharing site: The quality of the web hosting should also be taken into account, use paid not free ones.

That said, if you’re looking for a cloud storage option for your work, you’ll have to look elsewhere as that is not what 500px is designed for. It only stores high-quality images for licensing and doesn’t allow you to store RAW files.
