It would be nice to support JSONp on all API results in JSON format. You just have to wrap the result up in a function set via a additional paramater usually named callback see http://pastebin.com/Pfb3sgTT
I love this site and check it multiple times a day and I first want to thank you for all the hard work you put into making it into such a great site! There is one thing I think could be improved that would remove the only aspect of the site I don't love. Is there any way to make it so whenever an image is added to the main gallery it becomes the first image under the new tab? I've noticed that it is frequently the case that new images appear somewhere in the middle of the new section. If they could be sorted in someway that would prevent me from missing images I think the site would be perfect! Thanks again for all your hard work.
I was really excited to see that imgur was testing a new layout, so I decided to test it out -- is it really supposed to look like this? If so, you're about to dissapoint a lot of people.
Sorry, I need more information.
these are one of those:
However, I resent PayPal's business ethics and don't want to deal with them or via them. The FAQ search revealed that you are already planning to implement other payment channels as well. So, first the question part: when have you planned to expand the options?
And second, the "thanks" part: it's great to know such a plan is on the way - you'll be gaining a subscriber :)
Sometimes I see comments with typos (including my own), and it'd be really handy to be able to edit comments after I've hit "save" to change these mistakes that I and others have missed and didn't intend. I suggest a limited amount of time (maybe ~5mins) if possible, so that someone can't get a top comment, and then abuse it by using it for advertising etc.
Keep up the good work!
when i try to upload a picture to the gallery, a box pops up asking me to add or save a title even though it has a title. i click save anyway, then the screen goes grey with a little "x" close button.... that's. about. it.
Not sure if it's a bug or not, but I thought you took out all the ads with audio. I find them annoying, and am sure many others do too.
We don't allow our advertisers to use them, but there are thousands of ads on the site, so once in a while one slips through. If you can send details about which ad it was and which page you found it on, we can remove it. Thanks!
It seems that the search feature searches for image titles only. It'd be nice if there was an option to include search for text in comments. Example: Someone made a funny comment several weeks ago and I didn't comment or like the image so I can't refer back to it via my profile. I'd like to search for the comment, and the comment along with the picture would show up. Brilliant idea and not too hard to incorporate. I should work for Imgur... :)
Recently, comments have been immediately downvoted on any and all pictures being uploaded to imgur right when they are uploaded. I and others have voiced the opinion that the option to downvote other comments be taken away for the first 30 minutes, give or take, that any image is on imgur, after which the right is given back. This will easily solve the problem, and a spam report option can be added to offset spam if need be.
And my suggestion would be - a report user button!
If you report the user's comment it also reports the entire user. Please use that function which can be accessed by clicking the arrow on the right hand side while hovering over the comment. Thanks!
Most of the times I just have to quickly upload an image, but on a slower connection I'm hesitant to come to imgur because the landing page, which is the only way to upload images, takes forever to load before ctrl-v (props to that feature btw) takes effect, and eveth then it takes a while because of the sheer volume of network traffic used up by image loading process.
A separate light uploading page without all the images would be extremely convenient.
I sent an e-mail to IMGUR via the contact form but figure I could post the same question here. I just upgraded to Pro but the images I'm uploading are still getting compressed even after going into my settings and checking the box for "Upload images in high quality."
So for example, an image I uploaded that was 950kb would get compressed to 250-300kb. Is there anything that I'm missing? Does it take time for the system to adjust when going Pro?
Images are loading just fine, but under the comments section I'm just getting the little white "loading" circle. Thought maybe my connection was slow at the time so I let it sit for a few minutes and still nothing.
I think the new imgur is to much. I understand the whole everyone can upload but it's to much. Now instead of great, funny, pictures we get stupid and boring pictures. Yes I know go to hottest with time and it's just like the old imgur. But i don't agree with the new imgur. Simple is always better and I believe you went way over your heads with this. Miss the old imgur =\
I'm trying to paste about 10 urls in to the new upload box to group in to a gallery, but the new box only allows one URL to be added.
I'm using firefox 16.0.2 - latest flash etc.
I can't past multiple rows of urls, then save them to a gallery.
This morning when I came into work, I noticed i.imgur.com links do not load. If I go to imgur.com the page loads, but there are no pictures. It was working fine yesterday.
This is what it looks like: http://img196.imageshack.us/img196/8646/screenshot2011100423232.png
I have tried the following:
-Hosts file entries, nothing seems to work
-Imgur -> Filmot script - script failed referencing 'document'
-Ingur -> Filmot Chrome Addon, only works on the first page of RES, then stops
-Switching to Google's DNS, no effect
I can ping i.imgur.com. All browsers on my machine are affected. Other machines on my network are unaffected, so I know it is not blocked for us. Does anyone have any advice? This is maddening.
If I try to load an i.imgur.com link all I get is a blank white page and the tab says "qus4p.png (1x1)"
Was working perfectly fine yesterday. My network does not have i.imgur.com blocked, any other machine can access it.
However, if all 6 thumbnail has been seen before, the only way to skip forward is to click on the 6th thumbnail. It would be nice to add another button to roll in another 6 thumbnail without needing to load the big picture unnecessarily.
Just wanted to say that I've been using imgur almost every single day for over a year now, and I incredibly enjoy your website. However, since the new gallery update there are so many new images flooding in, and the overall quality in terms of cuteness/funnyness/interesting-ness has gone down incredibly. I know it's a fine line between having lots of photos and having high quality photos, but the new update is way past that line. I've literally never been so bored browsing the gallery than just now, because that's exactly just it, now you have to browse the gallery to find a gem, instead of the majority of the images being gems. Please cut back on the influx of images, it's turning imgur into 9gag.
I think a lot of what you're mentioning can be solved by tinkering with the sorting options. The "old" gallery is still there exactly as it was before. Images are still imported based on their virality. The only difference is that we are not calling those new anymore. They are automatically hot, so to access them you can sort hottest by time.
We don't expect that everyone will want to take on the task for finding the good new content on the new section. Most people will likely stick to the hot section (aka the old gallery) and things will progress as normal. We do expect, however, that the community vibe that we all love will actually become more tight-knit because we are commenting and up voting one another's images rather than those of strangers. That way when images make it from new to hot, we can comment and actually interact with OP.
TL;DR the new content is not all supposed to be good. It's up to the community to vote and decide. If you don't want to, you can stick to hottest for the old experience.
We're not aware of any problems with serving images, but it sounds like your computer is having a hard time resolving the i.imgur.com<http://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
Resetting router does not work, not really sure what else to do.
