Imgur Uploaded Images not showing up anymore

Hi guys,

Over the night ALL imgur uploaded posted images are gone and not showing up again. Neither my profile picture shows up nor all the material I worked on and posted/sent through messages. Is this some MFG related bug?

I got the same problem.
The weird thing is that after I copy the images addresses and paste them on another tab to see them, I can see the images, then I refresh the first page and they appear scratch that because they don't.

It is a bit annoying to do that for everything though.

Seems that Imgur images doesn't work only here, in other forums like MFFA Imgur images are showed correctly.

Is it JUST for imgur? Cause what about images from photobucket or other sites like that? Also, if anything, I recommend usinv puush as an alternative (its what I use and it's a lot faster).

Well, this is awkward. Imgur has blocked image loads when they come from mugenguild.com. :sadgoi:

Their ToS quite clearly state "Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network.", which might be what we are doing I guess?

I sent them a support request asking about it, since this is purely from user-generated content. We'll how that goes. Worst case, users can't use imgur links anymore, and there would be little we could do about that from our side.

the user can install a plugin to manage referrals and disable them. for chrome users
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/referer-control/hnkcfpcejkafcihlgbojoidoihckciin?hl=en
for opera users like me, the Filter Request Headers extension does the job. other browsers probably have similar plugins

another forum that i go to had this same problem and it was solved after contacting imgur staff. there were a couple differences though, for starters the other forum had more activity than this one, and the other forum required an admin approved account for reading. my shitty little avatar here has cost them 6.5 gb of bandwidth, now multiply that by all the other users.

either way i suggest finding another image host. imgur will only become more strict from now on with this shit because they want to build their own community for Epic Memes instead of just being a regular image host.

this thread should be a news item, the current ban makes several mugen and graphic art threads useless unless you install a referral plugin

Ugh this sucks. :(

are any of those alternatives as good as imgur? Like, in terms of ease of upload and a guarantee that the images will be hosted for quite a long while?

My Avatar is hosted on imgur. I noticed it wasnt showing up today. (I've been AFK for a week)
So I looked into my profile settings, copy/pasted the url and was taken to the image.
I hit "Save Changes" even though I changed nothing.
Avatar is working for me. Not sure if is a personal fix or the site's been fixed or what. Just putting it out there.

Yeah, that's just a cache thing because you loaded it from the site, your browser is remembering it without reloading it. Hit ctrl+f5 to see it disappear.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I'm pretty sure it's not possible to interoperably suppress the referer header for <img> tags on the client side.

Didn't receive a reply from imgur yet, but their support page said they are available monday through friday so I probably just missed that with my inquiry.

you'd need to fitler the img tags so they refer to your server first with the url then run server dcode to get the image form the net to a lcoal disk and serve that one. the kind of things you only od for a paying client.

If this is the case then, I'll have to download ALL the images and .gifs I uploaded to imgur, that includes my avatar and all the .gifs of the fighter in my project and take it elsewhere.

it shows up because you're pasting a link somewhere else and looking at it without going through mugenguild. changing http to https in a picture posted here doesn't change the referrer so it's still blocked

Hi there Valodim,

Thank you for writing in. I am sorry for the delay and the inconvenience.
Hi ,

Thanks for writing. Unfortunately that site has been blocked from
hotlinking due to multiple instances of abuse of Imgur's terms of
service. The terms of service can be found at http://imgur.com/tos. As  a
team, we discussed the purpose of your website and have removed the block
(this may take up to 24  hours).

I  look forward to seeing you within the community.

case solved. thanks  imgur guys :mugoi:

"Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network."
this

which is kinda ridiculous considering how every top post on reddit is a direct link to imgur and reddit isn't blacklisted

Photobucket is garbage though, it takes forever to load, forces you to the site if you just try to view a standalone image, and has ads all over it.
