Deteriorating comments

Peter Sargent 6 years ago • updated by Sarah 6 years ago 0

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

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!
