Suggestion: Stop Using Imgur

Post by Moira on Wed Feb 17, 2016 2:39 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 letting me know. I've been using Imgur for a while now, but I will definitely switch to another site.
