In the Messages > Sent list, there's no apparent way to see the recipient of a private message until / unless that person replies to your message. Your Sent Messages link back to your own profile, but I already know that I'm the one who sent them. :)  Possible to add a link to the recipient's profile from within the Sent Message as well?  Thanks!

Please give the option to edit a comment for 5 seconds after it's posted.

Devil God 6 years ago 0
I understand editing capabilities lead to trouble and confusion sometimes, so that is why I ask that the limit be something as little as 5 seconds. Often, I would notice that I made a typo only after I submitted a comment and have to quickly: select the text, copy, delete the comment, make a new comment, paste, edit the typo, and submit again. It's not a huge deal but would be nice to be able to edit for a few seconds after you submit a comment.

Thank you for reading!

Hiding (or deleting) images from your imgur gallery removes them from any albums that contain them.

None of the images work for me, the website is still accesible. I'm in theNetherlands.

Escmymind 8 years ago • updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago 1
As a frequent user of reddit, when all the imgur images stopped working, I was unable to do my daily browsing.

Is there soemthing wrong with the image servers? My girlfriend's internet can't access them eiter. I'm in the Netherlands.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago

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.

Anonymous upload option when logged in

Eric Hinrichsen 8 years ago • updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago 1
Sometimes I'm just wanting to use imgur for one-off uploads, sharing of screenshots by IM, etc, that I don't want to become part of my login's set of images.

Currently I need to log off, upload, share, log back in when doing this.

If there's real estate, a 2nd, smaller, "Upload Images <as Anonymous>: (Computer/URL)" box when logged in would be a great help. Also, when doing upload by dragging into the browser window, maybe have a little "Anonymous" box in the lower left that when dragged over would upload anonymously would be cool too.
Answer
Alan Schaaf (Founder) 8 years ago
Inside your account, there's a "hide" button that appears when you select an image for deletion. This is why this button is there, so that you can hide those images from your account and make them anonymous. Thus, there's no need to actually sign out or upload as anonymous.

It would be great if I could create non-gallery albums made of existing images (references to images rather than new uploads)

Does that make sense? What I'm suggesting is a bit like the way faving on deviantart or youtube works, where you can like an image regularly or add it to a specific group/playlist of liked images/videos etc. in this case images and possibly albums that appear in the gallery or /r/ sub galleries. ~lostsemicolon on imgur

how to maintain same direct link when editing a previously uploaded image

Hi, I have an account on imgur, I want to edit an existing image but I want it to preserve the same direct link.

Issues with album sort order and caption editing.

emple 8 years ago • updated by Alan Schaaf (Founder) 7 years ago 2
1. Adding new images to an album breaks the existing image order (it didn't used to do this). 2. When I go to edit captions in an album, it's only displaying the first 50 images in the album. I need to edit a caption that's not in the first 50. (I think I used to be able to do this, too?)

Gallery Profile>Comments page enhancement

Deric Jones 7 years ago • updated by Sarah 7 years ago 0

On the Gallery Profile>Comments page, it would be nice if you could view who/what you were replying to with your comment, and who replied to you all on the same screen.  It helps to put your comment in context.  Alternatively, when you clicked on your comment, instead of taking you to the image in a general view, if it expanded the reply nodes to show your comment, that would help too.


When you go back after a week, you don't always remember what you were talking about, and this would help immensely :)

When I have viewed Imgur on its mobile site recently, I've noticed that the images don't always correspond to the caption/comments.

The image corrects itself when I switch back to the desktop site.

New bug introduced over the weekend, regarding ` character.

Nicholas Flanagan 7 years ago 0

Apparently if you hit ` (that's the 'left single quote' underneath tilde (~/`)) it opens up some kind of broken help screen.


It's not major, just annoying.  I didn't see it come up when other characters are hit while the page is active.. hoping that you might adjust whatever may have changed so that the ` key stops doing weird stuff.  For now I'll just see if I can block the script.


I have a remap with autohotkey which makes use of this button, but the screen will come up if I'm closing a tab in chrome, and the next tab is an imgur image-page link.


Thanks.

I don't really go to Imgur to "take part in the community". I go to Imgur to upload images. The new Imgur front page really kind of sucks in that regard, because the "Upload" button will not activate until the whole front page is finished loading.
