Get md5 or something to check if there is duplicates; on your account and / or on the whole site. At times the site manages to load the same image 10 times, and takes forever to delete again.

Right now, if you go to "Favorites" it shows you all images you had favorited over the time.
Now I want to categorize these favorites for example some images goes into the category/album/folder/... "funny", some into "pretty girls", or maybe some into "incredible places"...something like that.

First of all, thank you for Imgur. I feel like i have finally found my family. that being said, every family has a drunken uncle or two, and here they take the form of downvote fairies. It seems that in the mad dash for top comment some people have found that downvoting every comment around them can keep theirs high on the list and visible. Two possible solutions that i have seen:

1) Make each downvote "cost" points from your accumulated reserve (though some people might try to get around this by un-downvoting comments after theirs is clearly a runaway lead)
2) Make total upvotes/downvotes given from each user visible on their profile. that would make it easy to differentiate between a person who occasionally downvotes a bad idea from someone who downvotes competitively.

That being said, I love Imgur. These are just suggestions. keep doin' what you are doin'.

In some browsers (e.g. Chrome), it's really hard to get the direct URL of submitted Imgur images.

Intuitively, I should be able to click in the text field containing the direct URL, highlight it, and either right-click and select Copy or press Control-C, Alt-C, or Command-C, depending on the operating system.

Imgur tries to help by automatically highlighting and copying the URL to the clipboard when a user clicks the text field. However, when some browsers evaluate the JavaScript code that does this, they fail to actually copy the URL to the clipboard. Since this fails silently, users may end up pasting the wrong URL somewhere else. The original URL can be irretrievably lost.

The automatic highlighting and copying prevents users from manually copying the URL. This hurts Chrome users among others. Worse, this behavior punishes users for their assumption that Imgur works like any other HTML page.

Web 2 is fine, but a Web 2 page should gracefully downgrade to Web 1 behavior. That's a practical example, here's the theory.

It sounds like your computer is having a hard time resolving the i.imgur.com domain. Can you try changing your DNS settings to use either Google's Public DNS, or Open DNS? More information on that can be found here: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/ and https://store.opendns.com/get/basic

I just wanted to post here to see if there is there any way that we can get an option to block users. While 99% of the people are Imgur are awesome, there's always those few people in every group that are only there to try to make everyone else miserable. A perfect example of this is someone who made a new account today with the sole purpose of mimicking and annoying another user (as is stated in their profile comment). And now anyone who suggests that he calms down becomes a focus for his childishness as he adds their names to his profile "rant" and goes out of his way to find and reply to comments made by those people. Having my notifications spammed by someone screaming in all caps lock isn't my idea of fun.

Hey! Thanks for a really great, usable image host. For daily needs, I infinitely prefer imgur over all the alternatives!

I have a request, though. Often, when I'm viewing an album of images, I like to save them to my computer. Since I use the DownThemAll Firefox extension, which makes things really easy if they're all on one page, when uploaders choose the "Blog Layout" album style, I can download them really easily. Unfortunately, if the uploader chooses another album style, I can't do this.

An option for viewers to change the layout of albums they are viewing would be much appreciated. Uploaders could still specify a layout preference that would be loaded by default, but viewers could select from vertical, horizontal, grid, and blog layouts if they preferred a different style.

Thanks!

There are some issues with people not being able to load images, specifically in Europe and The Netherlands. I've contacted Edgecast (the network used to display the images) and they're aware of what's happening and are working to get it fixed.

I know that there is a way to report individual comments, but is it possible to report entire users? Besides posting their name here like I've seen? I've noticed quite a few spammers lately and I just thought it might be easier than going through and reporting each of their individual comments.


I've been told that the ability to individually report posts is better because it allows just the bad posts to be reported and removed, as well as keeping from potential abuse of people getting reported willy-nilly. But if a sort of, perhaps more time consuming or indirect method could be established, I think it would be very helpful when it comes to users who are being used purely for posting spam. For instance something where you have to post a reason for the report and maybe a link to at least 3 or so instances that proves a need for it? I don't know something along that line.


I know you guys are working hard to keep imgur a great place and I love and appreciate everything you do. This is a wonderful site. Just a small suggestion to help keep the community clean and fun.

It's really quite simple. If within the first hour of posting a comment (no point in revising by then) you wish to revise your comment, you can. However, comments which have been edited are clearly, and I cannot stress this enough, marked as edited and all replies are marked as being towards an earlier revision. Perhaps allow only a single edit on the comment. If you're worried about people changing the content of their comment after it's become popular, allow like five letters of difference maximum, enough to correct minor spelling errors (swapping letters, forgot a letter, etc.) This can be implemented simply, but it has to be in a way that doesn't allow for ambiguity on whether or not a comment has been edited.
