This is just a quick update to let all our readers know know that unfortunately the Digital Camera World forum, which has been closed for maintenance following an attack, will not be coming back.
We apologise for any inconvenience or frustration this may cause.
Following what was a sophisticated attack on the forum we use, we took it offline for maintenance.
During this process we realised that the cost of producing and maintaining a secure forum is more than we can afford, so we took the unfortunate decision to close it down for good.
We have really valued all of the spirited debates and wonderful feedback from readers on our forum over the years, as well as enjoyed looking at the amazing images you shared with us in its galleries.
We hope you stick around, as we have lots of exciting plans in the works, and would love it if you joined us on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest to continue all your thoughtful discussions on photography!
For readers of the print magazine, we realise we’ve been using the forum as an entry mechanism for competitions and image submissions. We’ve not quite worked out yet how we’ll shift this (probably a Flickr gallery you can all upload to), but will update on this soon.
Thanks again for your patience
