Hey guys,

Is there a way to craft an HTTPS URL for GB images returned from the API? I noticed if I try this:

https://static.giantbomb.com/uploads/scale_small/8/87790/2293393-box_re6.png

It actually has a bad certificate; i.e. Akamai is serving the image but the cert is for GB, so browsers deny it unless you add an exception.

This is sort of a big deal if you intend to serve your site over SSL.

Any ideas?

We aren't planning to serve content thru SSL currently (that may change in the future). How are you getting to the static https call?

I was just hoping changing the protocol would work.

This essentially precludes the ability for my site to work under SSL, since I can't link to Giantbomb images since browsers won't display them. That leaves me two choices: implement a workaround to not have to use SSL or to cache all the images locally (ugh).

On my end I think I can workaround having to use SSL for the game pages but it would be nice not to have to. It's been 6 months, have you guys re-considered?
