Ever since Photobucket revamped and moved itself to such a cluttered and laggy interface, I've been searching for another image host I could call my very own. u n u

I found it on imgur by chance, and let me just say that the site is so aethetically pleasing that I would have loved it even if the navigation wasn't so simple, the options weren't so convenient, or the hosting wasn't so flawless.

So thanks. ; v ; I love it here. You guys did something really fantastic.

Hi,

I'm an Opera user. I liked imgur.com.

Could you make an Opera extension? Opera and Chrome is using same method to making extensions. So it shouldn't be so hard.


Here's an usefull link to making extensions in Opera:

Recently, Facepunch has been blocked by you, Imgur, for no reason apparently, so Facepunch is blocking you. I don't understand why but is there a reason you chose to block Facepunch? The forum has around 60,000 members or so and is unbelievably active with images all over the place.

I changed my DNS addresses to Google's, and images hosted on imgur.com still don't load for me.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 6 years ago
I'm not sure what else we can do then. Usually when people have problems with images not loading it has something to do with their DNS.

There aren't any service outages anywhere right now, so I have a feeling it has something to do with your computer/network. Have you tried loading images on any other computers?

I use an extention to upload images to my imgur account (...and galleries). I would like a zip-function so I could download the images I'd like: all, last week, last month, etc., and even specified images.

Don't know what it would do to the servers, but it takes forever to download atm - unless another feature will be available for me/us to use add-ons like DownThemAll! etc.

Hi imgur guy,

You were on my adblock whitelist for being so awesome.  But then I got an auto-playing ad for Lysol wipes, complete with sound and video.  Now you're not on the whitelist anymore.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 6 years ago
I'm really sorry about that. Imgur has no control over the ads that are on the site -- at all. We work with several different ad networks, and even though I've repeatedly told them not to serve sound ads, some slip through anyway.

Could you help me track it down? What page did you see it on? Also, where are you located?

I think you should have a "Top Commenters" list for witty users somewhere. It would rank users via reputation points in particular time frames. Similar to "Today's Best Comments" but more in depth. Divide them up between "Daily/Weekly/Monthly/All-time." It would list the most witty users with recent comments and then possibly add subscriptions as an option to follow them. Then your reputation points would actually give you reputation. And add visibility to every imgurians awesomeness!


I think this would add to the interactivity(?) of the site. Just a thought.

I feel like the quality of the images as well as the amount of views/comments an image receives have gone down overall as a result of the new layout. I've always wanted to upload images directly to the gallery, but now that I see it being done, I feel like what's being posted isn't all that interesting at all. The whole sorting system seems flawed to me. I liked just being able to hit 'newest' because I felt like I was catching up on everything that had been posted. Now I feel like I'm missing out on images. I'm not trying to sound like one of those people that says "Bring back the old Imgur!" but I don't think it changed for the better.


Answer
Sarah 4 years ago

What you used to know as new is now hottest sorted by time. It's exactly the same as the old gallery. The new new section is not meant to be the best content, it is meant to be completely new content that is totally vulnerable to our community's feedback. I think both sections of the site offer something to some people, but no areas or functionalities have been taken away from what has always existed on the site.

The MPO file format is simply a 3D container for JPEG images. The container holds Two Images, one for the Left-Eye and one for the Right-Eye. Thus creating a 3D image on compatible viewers. However, MPO files also have fallback support for 2D viewing. You can embed an MPO on a Website and a Webbrowser will treat it just like a normal 2D JPEG and only display the Left Image. 3D capable devices(like the 3DS) can open the MPO images embeded on a site and display them in 3D with no issue.

So essentially you wouldn't need to do anything other than allow MPO file uploads. You may have to block Image editing because a normal image editor will probably only export a 2D JPEG instead of the whole MPO. However, other than that, there is no reason you can't add support for MPO.

I right news articales and reviews on a 3D image forum and use Imgur for all my 2D image hosting(I pay for Pro) but I have to use my Dropbox to host my 3D images since no Image sharer supports MPO files. Using my Dropbox like this is far from desirable. So I would be very happy if I could upload my 3D images on Imgur as well.

I sincerely apologize for asking newbie questions. Rest assured, i have referred the FAQ section before posting my query below.


I have been trying to get in touch with imgur support for a while to delete an image from a link. I had even emailed this concern via email to support@imgur.com, but received no response or reply.

I even sent a PM hoping for some response from the administrators.


I had uploaded this image to my account and after uploading it, i deleted the image from my account. But it still shows up in the link. I cannot post the link here for privacy reasons. The Request deletion link does not accept links ending in .picture-extension format

I would like to have my image deleted from the link ASAP due to privacy reasons. I would be truly grateful if you could delete this permanently from the link.


Please reply if you would like me to post the link or email the link to you.


I would be truly grateful if you could help me resolve the issue as early as possible


Thank you.

This happens because our CDN, Edgecast, gets backed up and does not remove images. The images have likely been removed from the Imgur server, but not from the CDN. The only thing we can do is continue to pressure them. http://imgur.com/removalrequest accepts URLs in picture extension format and is the best way to get your image removed.

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.


Sorry for the trouble, but it looks like things are out of my hands at this point. However, Edgecast is usually really on top of things, so I expect this should be resolved soon.

Scenario:

I'm browsing reddit and use RES's preview to see a pic linked to imgur. 

Normally, if it's high-res I guess, it loads revealing the pic from top to bottom. I can see the top, the middle, etc. while the rest of the unloaded photo is blank or black. Then the entire photo loads, refreshes(?) and I can see the photo! Great.

I've been having this problem where certain pics (can't figure out the pattern) load from top, to top-middle, to almost-middle, to middle-after then it just goes black. I just saw at least half of the photo, but it just goes black. 

I click on the imgur link and the same phenomenon happens. There's just a black thing instead of the photo I almost saw.

Except- this doesn't happen to all photos! I just wanna figure out what's going on. : (

Does anyone else have this problem? I've tried "imgur" "load" "black" and other keywords but I haven't been able to find anyone with the same problem.

I am on a Mac using Safari.

People downvote everyone else so that their comment bubbles to the top. So, instead of ordering captions by their total score, instead they could be ordered by the number of upvotes they received. That way, the only way someone could influence the order that the captions are in would be to upvote captions.

Each caption would still display the number of upvotes, downvotes, and total score it's received, and if the total score is negative, then they can still be put into the 'bad comments' section (and of course people's overall reputation will still take downvotes into account) - so downvoting would still serve a purpose.

This way, captions that receive a lot of praise get to the top, and not just captions that get the least downvotes. As the image gets older and the number of votes the captions receive goes from 10s to 1000s, it seems people start mindlessly upvoting captions at the top of the list and downvoting captions that are at the bottom without reading them, so it's important to get the balance right at the start when an image is new and most of the captions only have a few votes each.

Recently users of the Gallery have been abusing the voting system to try and achieve the top comment. It seems there is a minority of users that will downvote all other comments to give their comment a more prominent position.

When I browse the front page I prefer middle-clicking on images to open them in new tabs. Since the last update (where the gallery was moved to the front page) this also opens up the upload dialog, which forces me to middle click twice per image (to close the dialog).

 Every single upvote I give does not stay. I've tried clearing my cache, giving upvote then refreshing (gone), giving upvote then waiting a minute before viewing the next pic and returning (gone), tried several upvotes on an image's comments (all gone when I return), tried only one or two upvotes on an image's comments (gone when I return or refresh)... The ONLY time I can get an upvote to stick is to upvote and refresh and repeat until it stays. This is getting tiresome. Tried Chrome, but I can't test there since I can't log in via FB.
