Imgur Picture Links Dead

Recommended Posts

So, looking at the source, I'm seeing this for Shaggy:

#< img src="https://i.imgur.com/tmnLcdq.png" border="0" alt=""#>

and this for Surly:

#< img src="https://i.imgur.com/ejOejZq.jpg" class="ipsImage" alt="ejOejZq.jpg" #>

(inserted # comments to keep it from rendering).

Wonder if imgur is catching the ipsImage and thinking this is a blog site, using imgur to host site content vs a forum, and tripping a violation of their ToS?

If I can't contribute nonsensical gifs and images I'll have nothing to contribute to to the Surl, except maybe nudes...but I haven't been to the gym, in like, forever.

It's not an imgur account thing either. This was a fresh pic uploaded to my own imgur account 5 minutes ago, same shit.

I'm telling y'all that they've disabled hotlinking on Surly, Tapa probably doesn't get recognized with whatever rules they have in place. They did this on TMB a few years ago.

Could be this too. Nothing is "broken" this is something they're intentionally doing.

Maybe it works if you have an imgur account but not anonymous uploads with no account?

I have an imgur account and many of the ones I posted have disappeared.

So this is why I keep seeing letters.jpg all over Surly? when this gets fixed will those automatically get turned into pics?

This is serious business.

If imgur is really blocking Surly, it won't get fixed.  Shame, that is where I get a lot of the pics I post, it's a lot more effort to rehost them.

Tinypic works. Grab the url and use that. 

 

Now that dosn’t solve the problem of using imgur like photobucket and having albums, but worls for a quick one off of general net images that someone may find comes from imgur.

I tried inserting an Imgur url and it just pasted as a link...

Thanks for writing. Unfortunately that site has been blocked from hotlinking due to abuse of Imgur's terms of service (http://imgur.com/tos). Imgur's ToS prohibits using Imgur for a Content Delivery Network.

We recommend using Imgur's embed unit instead of hotlinking. More information about the embed links can be found here: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/211273743-Embed-Unit.

Please let me know if you have any other questions; I'd be happy to help.

please use some other sites.

This has to be a new policy right? Shaggy  hotlinked a lot of images every day.

Yeah, but Shaggy predated Imgur, and probably only gradually started linking to it's images.  Surly popped up virtually overnight and no doubt caused a spike in traffic, very noticeable.

That doesn't make any sense. We're not hosting the avatars or any other assets on imgur and afaik they still allow you to upload and hotlink random images.

Yep, most of the pics I put in my UnB thread were from imgur because it was a trustworthy site to hotlink nekkid pics. Oh well, I guess I will let that thread sink to the bottom of the urine. Too many clicks to download, then rehost, then insert into posts here.

Maybe we need to put in a call to the Principal....CEO of Imgur??

I'm a technological moron, but is there any kind of fancy redirecting or mirroring voodoo that could save the day? 

 

Or "using Imgur's embed unit rather than hotlinking" (whatever the fuck that means, but it was in their reply to our request for clemency), even if that means we don't have some of the fancy auto formatting or whatever, and have to go back to how we used to do things in the old country?

I don't use imgur to post pics (I either use tinypic or my flickr/google accounts) but I have noticed that if you remove the "i." from the imgur url you can see the image. I'm not sure if this would work as a workaround to posting or not but you could try it. 

For example, I right click on the broken image in Diablo's post above, and I see "https://i.imgur.com/S7OsvvS.jpg". I can't see shit. But if I just look at "https://imgur.com/S70svvS.jpg" I can see the images. 

Did this work?

okeedokey.

imgbox works for pics you load from your machine.

i haven't figured out how to dragdrop from the intertrons.

but it only requires a couple of extra clicks over imgur.
