s there a problem with imgur as i cannot access albums - over capacity since
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 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
I really need it as PNG as I need the transparency. Not to mention that the quality is severely diminished as a JPG file.
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!
The fact that you allow cross-domain uploading from flash applications is a godsend! You have made the screenshot button for my online flash game possible.
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.
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.
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 can still click on the up and down arrows and post comments, but they don't "stick". When I go back to the image, my comment is gone, and my upvote doesn't count anymore. In Chrome everything works normally, so I'm pretty sure its a firefox problem. I am running 15.0.1, which I believe is the latest version.

I can still see the pictures I deleted when I visit their image url.
After they are deleted from our servers, they have to also be deleted from our CDN. If the direct links are still working, it's because the CDN has not removed them yet, but they add the images to a queue and they will be removed in the order they are received.
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. I think it would be great for the old style "webs popular images" viewing but a different section for user uploaded pictures. 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.
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
I hope this does not mean I am a robot...
I have a problem with the oAuth authentication of an app. It somehow got wrong and it can't upload images anymore. I would like to see if it is registered with my imgur account and if it has the right tokens, but there is no page in imgur to see what apps have been authorized.
It would be good to have this page too, for security reasons.
I have talked to friends who have similar experiences.
Happens in Firefox.
I get what I'm looking for in like the first 3 pages tops. Honestly, it makes life easier and it will be easier for users like me to use imgur more in social situations, like chatrooms and forums.
I would like the ability to ignore other members. Between spam bots,
one-dimensional tired point-farmers, and soapbox history assailants,
there's a few people I would enjoy never seeing a post or notification
I realize it may sound anti-social or silly, but it would mean a lot to my browsing experience if I could never read a false fact again.
Hi Imgur my firefox cannot upload using new method. Pls can you restore the old html upload UI?
I'm absolutely sure I am not running Tor on my PC and I can't find a way toi upload images anymore.
You must have recently gotten an IP address of a tor exit node, and now the site thinks you're using tor. I think I've fixed the issue, so please check to see if you can upload now.
Hi, I've been using the large_thumbnail option and have come into a problem with what I can only presume is caching.
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?
This problem isn't present in Chrome, at least.
When I click on a gallery image, and then click Next to move to the following picture, the url in the address bar stays the same.
IE needs your special love. :(
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.
