    imgur links not working?

    I have noticed my imgur hosted photos aren't showing up on mtbr. Just checked another forum and the exact same photos are still visible there, so I'm guessing it's something with this forum?

    Ahh, that's it. OK now I know I'm not crazy. But this doesn't actually prove that actually NOT crazy does it? I am so confused.

    This is sure to piss DJ off. He's been the one pushing everyone to use imgur for posting images instead of links, right? Now it doesn't work!

    Korn, thanks for posting this I thought I was losing my mind earlier. I PM'd Net earlier today wondering if he had an idea of what it was. Hopefully someone will troubleshoot it.


    Progress: Just because we have always done it that way is no reason to keep doing it that way.

    Yep, Photobucket works. I'd rather use imgur though.

    Weird.

    I see one image, and no place holder for a second image.

    The logo banner is the second image, I had to take it out of my sig yesterday because it was showing the huge place holder.

    I just edited my image again in this post and it seems to be holding for now.

    Still broken. Actually, it seems worse. There are replies in some threads that would leave me to believe that some can view the images like before. I see some but most are white screened. Some open up when I click "view image" and some do not. Maybe eMpTyBeeR has a virus?

    Hmmm..sounds like an inside job. Like they don't want us using other sites to host photos and then move them over here. Problem is that's the only way to do it while belonging to the babbler mouth club. As we all know using the mtbr system to post photos they don't show up while in the blabber mouth club.

    I think it's time to put on my tinfoil hat!

    I was wondering if it is related to us babbler mouths, you don't see anyone outside the club posting in this thread...

    The man is trying to keep us down, man!

    Sorry Guys, not sure why this has not been addressed. I made a note in the moderators forum so hopefully an Admin will check it out.

    In Firefox with the Thumbnail Zoom Plus add-on I can mouse over both images and they appear. I can also right click> view image info and see them. They do not appear on the page, only blank squares with the broken image icon.

    *Edit: now they are visible.

    I just received a email from imgur.

    Hi Tunalic,

    Thanks for writing. Unfortunately that forum has been blocked from hotlinking due to abuse of Imgur's terms of service (Terms of Service - Imgur). Imgur's ToS prohibits using Imgur as a content delivery network, which means that website elements such as buttons, banners, avatars, frames, image libraries, etc. cannot be hosted on Imgur and served up as elements of other sites. Imgur's intended use is not as a CDN, but rather as a platform to upload, share and browse entertaining images, which is why using it to serve website elements or image libraries is not allowed.

    Please also be aware, that any forum that has a section dedicated to selling, such as classified are also against the advertising portion of the TOS.

    If you'd like to be unblocked, please take measures to undo the functionality that caused the terms of service breach, at which point we'd be happy to review.

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

    What a load of crap.

    Abandon imgur and go to a new host.
