Suggestion: Stop Using Imgur

Post by Cammy on Wed Feb 17, 2016 1:30 pm

Hello loves <3

I was recently browsing through a graphic forum that I am apart of and got an alert of a new post. I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to link you all to it, but I can provide a screenshot (at the end of this post if you'd like to read it). Anyways, I'm positive majority of us use Imgur to host any images, but I really would suggest you stop. So, basically to sum the entire post up, they are eventually going to ban sites that are hotlinking images from their site. Imgur is already starting with Jcink forums, and assuming the next will be Invisionfree or Proboards. I'm just afraid Forumotion will be affected by these actions, so I want to inform you all about it. If/When this happens I'm assuming, from the posts I have read, that all images hosted with Imgur will end up like this:



So, to avoid this I'm suggesting to change your hosting site. Here are the alternatives that the graphic site came up with:
- http://ultraimg.com/
- http://postimg.org/
- http://www.imagebam.com/
- http://imgsafe.org/

I'm pretty sure Servimg is still a good site to use as well, so use that if you're more comfortable with it.

thanks for the info.
Lunapic has been letting me post to imgur without an account, so I haven't even read those terms of service.
what about ezphotoshare?

EzPhotoShare seems to work just like UltraImg, with the same layout and everything, so I'm sure that's good to use. (:

Thanks for letting me know about this. I've been using Imgur for a long time, but I will definitely switch over to a new site now.

Oh wow this is so helpful thank you so much for this info! I'm curious if you might know the answer to a question I've been having recently involving uploading gifs to image hosting websites such as the ones you listed about (and imgur). I'll find a gif on google for example and crop it for my profile picture through a website and then upload that link to a website like the ones above. The only website that will even read the gif is imgur but once I put the direct link into my profile (using the separate link tab below the standard image one), it won't work and will result in no picture. And if I upload the imgur url to one of the other ones as provided above, it won't read the file at all, nor the original. /: I'm wondering if you know how to solve this? 

I'm currently at school typing this on my phone so I don't have the specific gif I'm talking about but I'll be home in about an hour and can upload it here for you to see. (: 

No worries if you can't figure it out but you sound like you know what you're talking about so I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask! Thank you so much for your time! <3

hm, maybe when you get on your computer you can send me the link you'd put upload on to the sites and I can see what I can do (:

Okay, when I tried the code along side the same link without the v and the end of gif it worked. I noticed imgur using the extention .gifv, but I think on the side with the links below the gifv link, there is just the generic .gif link c: if that makes any sense

Here's the comparison:

.GIFV


.GIF

Code:

I hope I helped!
