I tried to submit to the gallery an image I already had uploaded. First I had to verify my e-mail (no problems there). Next I went to submit the image again and after clicking save on the "Is this title okay?" prompt all I see is a very tiny box with an 'x' in the center of my screen. The rest of the screen fades slightly as if it were displaying a linked image in the comments, but no other feedback.  Not sure if I am missing something, but it appears I am unable to submit anything to the gallery at this point.

I've been having people saying they can't see the pics I linked them to, this week, and today not even I could see them using the links I posted. Every link gives me the "403 Forbidden" message.
I even altered my settings to make everything public, but didn't work.

I've used imgur for quite a while now, and have enjoyed using it very much. But recently I stopped using it for a while - today is the first time I've been on in a few weeks. Since coming back, I've noticed a number of changes (all of which I initially thought were improvements) - the 'OP' label in the comments, comment-sorting etc., but now I've noticed that there are many fewer comments, and, in general, they're not nearly as funny. It seems to me too sudden to simply be because of a coincidental decrease in users, so I'm wondering if it's somehow because of the changes that have been introduced. One of the things which made me switch from Cheezburger to imgur for my internet procastination purposes was the amusing and more open comment section, but now I might start to look into other sites instead.

Answer
Sarah 5 years ago

User activity has never decreased. There are more images to view now, so you may be seeing a spread in comments among all the images. Commenting is most popular on the "most viral" images rather than the "user submitted images," so you may try checking there. Please email me at sarah@imgur.com if you would like to talk more about this. Thanks!

As you can see here: http://i.imgur.com/EYyJAbx.jpg (res. is 1440p) there's a lot of free space. It would be nice to have a setting that allow us to set a custom number of images columns to fill the empty space.

The Chrom{e,ium}-version of the Imgur addon has the ability to upload directly to an album. This is something the Firefox-version does not, and therefore more or less renders the addon useless for me since I almost always sort my images. Would really love to have this feature in Firefox aswell, thanks!

I'm trying to upload a PNG image, but when I do so Imgur changes the file to JPG, even after stating it is PNG while uploading it.  It only ever does it on the one image.  I can upload smaller ones as PNG and they remain that when uploaded, but the file that keeps changing is only 0.98MB.  I read that the max size for a PNG file is 2MB, so why is it changing?

I really need it as PNG as I need the transparency.  Not to mention that the quality is severely diminished as a JPG file.

So there are a couple of posts on the problem of downvoters already, but there are a couple more viable suggestions for how to deal with the issue. I think it's something that needs to be looked-at, as there seem to be users who just downvote everything, without even reading what they're striking.  It's leaving a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths.

A couple of suggestions on how to deal with the issue:
First, we could get rid of downvotes all-together.  Upvotes would decide the winner, and offensive comments could be reported.
Another option would be a cap on downvotes:  either you get 5-10/day, or you earn 1 for every 10 upvotes.  Something like that. 

Imgur is a predominantly positive place, and I'd like to see it stay that way!

Thanks for your time and consideration.  

p.s.  You have an engaged community who loves this site.  Why not put a couple of ideas forward, each one as an individual picture in a reserved spot at the top of the gallery, and let us vote on them?...  That'd be cool!

In the new multi-picture posts on imgur, if you remove "gallery" from the URL it sometimes goes to a completely different picture. For example, http://imgur.com/gallery/tdTp0 is two gifs of a dad on a swing, but http://imgur.com/tdTp0 goes to some random wrestler. Sometimes the alternate picture is extremely NSFW or NSFL. Also, the mobile phone version of imgur chooses to display the alternate picture no matter what.

Shamelessly linking my story of it: http://imgur.com/gallery/KUq6K. A bit more detailed description, and the comments verify it's not just me experiencing the issue

That type of BS is exactly what sucks about all the other web image services.  This is exactly the reason why imgur had a reason to exist - specifically because it DIDN'T have BS like that!  PLEASE get rid of it!


When I click on an image to see the whole image, if it's too big my browser automatically resizes it so that it takes up the entirety of my browser window.  But with the stupid window-in-webpage image thing I can only ever see a portion of the image at any time!  That's awful.


I have been a huge fan of imgur since day one and I've promoted your site a lot.  Please don't go down the path of ruining your great site with lots of flashy "upgrades".  KEEP IT SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD!


I appreciate the site and the work that you do.  Thanks.

Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 6 years ago

Nothing with this hasn't changed in around 6 months.


It sounds like you're talking about the zoom thing that's in the gallery. However, it's in the gallery ONLY, and this is because once you're in there browsing through pictures, you don't want to switch to an image-only window with no navigation.


If you are anywhere else on the site then it shows only the image. Not sure why you're bringing this up now, because once again, nothing has changed.

I feel that every time a new image is posted, the image is flooded with captions and everyone is trying to get the top caption and steal all the points for themselves, by whatever means. If this means down-voting all other comments that get sent to the bottom. In the aim of equality and genuinely trying to make Imgur even better, maybe it would be an idea to implement a time limit before a caption can be downvoted?

Therefore insulting or rude captions will only remain for a short time (say, ten minutes but the time can get less as Imgur increases in popularity), people who try to ruin Imgur's fair captions system don't get the one-up on everyone else, and people can still up-vote whatever captions they feel re the funniest/wittiest. Just an idea, probably worth a trial run and some feedback on your blog first.

Other than that. Imgur is my #1 website :) All we need now is that Imguraffe ;)

Recently, a section for highly popular images were added to the home page, as well as top comments. Now, Imgur is my favorite image-sharer of all time, but part of the reason I enjoyed was is the simplicity and tranquility of the uploading process. I could just click on the bookmark, upload an image, get the direct link, and be on my way. I can still do that, but the bombardment of images on the front page along with the uploader now undermines that peaceful, easy feeling. Your slogan is "the simple image sharer," after all.


I know that there are many people who only visit Imgur to browse images, not to upload them. The new home page is most likely a positive addition for those people. But I also know that there are many others like me who don't want to browse and merely want to upload.


My idea, which I propose humbly and respectfully, is this: add an option to opt out of the new front page and go back to the old one, should you so desire. Some people might even like to alternate between the two. Thank you for your time and consideration.

I really like the older version of Imgur, close knit community has now been spread out between the different viewing sections. I also understand there is always room for change.

Where us Imgurians can vote user uploaded photos into the popular viewing section.

They are currently different sections. New is all user submitted in real time. Hot is those images that have already proven themselves on the web. Hot sorted by time is the old new.

While I am enjoying the "new" imgur, I suspect the casual user is not aware of the gallery function making posts public/for comment. I've seen quite a few which from the caption and content really do strike me as stuff uploaded to share with friends, not stuff uploaded for the gallery. I'm wondering if it might be made clearer, perhaps in the note that says "Upload 1 image into the gallery" - maybe change that to "Upload 1 image into the *public* gallery"

This was really long winded, sorry.

Hi team Imgur!

I want to give you some (hopefully constructive) criticism on the new layout. (sorry if "bugs" is the wrong section, but there wasn't a "feedback" option)

The up/down vote bar; How many ups vs downs a post has is a bit of into that is really nice to see, on almost all posts. Having to click to see it really detracts from its usefulness. The previous red/green bar was a really nice, simple representation that you just absorbed without any effort. UI improvements should reduce the number of clicks users make, not increase them.

The padding in the comments text field is somewhat deceptive. It makes it feel like the cursor is not right at the beginning of the field.

The fav icon turning red. well yes I can see that you are going for a classic heart colour, but its so counter intuitive as it's the same colour as a downvote.

v minor points;
The separation between the comments section and image feels like a waste of screen space, and really breaks the visual line of the interface.
The new buttons seem rather old-school and clunky.

I'm sorry these are all negative points, but I'm sorry to say that there is nothing about the new UI that I can get excited about. It seems like change for changes sake and has reduced the easy and intuitive user flow that is part of what made imgur so great.

I really hope that you'll back out some of the recent changes. I love Imgur but these changes really don't sit well.

All the best
J

I have had a PRO account for a year; it was set to autopay via paypal.  All of the sudden it has gone back to a basic account, I have no access to at least 1000 images, and when I tried to resubscribe to pro, it tells me my "invoice has already been paid."  So on the one hand I'm being shown that I've paid for pro, but on the other hand, am still stuck with the limitations of a free account.  I even created and verified a NEW paypal account to try and renew subscription that way - it said the same thing.  So now I'm really really frustrated.   Is it possible to create a new IMGUR account, pay for pro for that one (since hopefully it won't give me the same glitch), and move ALL of my photos over?  (even the ones that are being hidden despite being in a pro account?)   Sarah you have helped me with this quite a bit and I appreciate it, but I am getting nowhere and I have images i do NOT want to lose.  Can anyone help?

Hi, I've been using the large_thumbnail option and have come into a problem with what I can only presume is caching.


Occasionally when I modify a URL from: http://i.imgur.com/5hFoN.jpg  to http://i.imgur.com/5hFoNl.jpg 


I get the http code 302, with no redirect link. A simple way to get around this is to wait 100ms or so and try again. I presume in this time, the image is cached to the smaller thumbnail format.


Is this expected behaviour? If so, is my "fix" acceptable?

I enjoy browsing the gallery sorted by "new". That's just my preference. If I've not been on in a while, there's many new images to look at. After a while, I'll notice that I'm seeing the same images with the occasional new image mixed in, as in, there are actual repeats. I only figured out today that what happened was my preference setting expired - I went back to gallery view and noticed it was set back to "hot".

I use IE10 with no add-ins or special configuration, and visit imgur from reddit links.  While viewing an image, I can click on another imagine in the "browse" box in the upper right, and that image is loaded in the main viewing area.  However after doing this once, clicking on subsequent images in the "browse" box has no effect.  If I reload the page, I get one more click before it breaks again.  I can still right-click to open the images in new tabs, though.

 

I noticed that by using the IE developer tools (press F12) to force imgur to render using "Document Mode: standards" instead of "Document Mode: IE9 standards", this problem goes away, but the image pages always default to IE9 standards for some reason.  I assume this is related to some headers you use or don't use, but I don't know the details.
