Imgur Going Mad ???

Post by Hand-Holder » Thu May 25, 2023 2:32 pm

HI guys, does anyone knows what is going on with Imgur ?

I know it allows adult stuff as long it is kept hidden and classified Mature, than only people with links I send can access specific galleries, it has been like that until now...

But since yesterday, half my galleries have their thumbnail and number of files visible, yet when I click on them, it goes 404, even for Me...

The other half with same type of works, opens ok, is weird, cause it makes no sense and I got no notifications

Do you guys know any other service that allows to store hardcore stuff and share galleries with links ? Flickr has gone woke so that is a no go...

Patreon only allows Me to share adult stuff if it is directed to Patrons only, so I need a place where to host the adult images because to share free to everyone on Patreon, I can only make public the links and not the images

TIA

Oh, so that's why a bunch of the links you posted led to 404 pages. Is it possible to post them directly to this site?

Imgur had announced quite some time ago that they would stop supporting adult content completely.
I know that some people rushed to move everything they had over to imgchest. (Lets see how long it takes for them to crack down on that too)

I think people will get fedup of all these craps and start hosting stuff on their own websites

We loose the community and sharing part but we can sleep much better

Even Patreon is getting weird plus the fees...

They literally pulled a Tumblr with that one.
I noticed that when all the pics I saved for refs to give to ShrinkFan's commission giveaway, which aren't even NSFW to begin with, got their links purged. They're still experimenting on Post Image as the alternative for sharing pics and references at this point.

Hello,

This problem could be due to several reasons, such as technical glitches on Imgur's end, changes in their content policy, or issues with your account.

Imgur's policy on adult content, as you mentioned, allows such content as long as it's marked mature and not publicly accessible. However, policies and enforcement can change, so it's possible that Imgur has updated its approach to handling this type of content, leading to the issues you're experiencing.

As for alternatives, here are a few options you might consider for hosting and sharing adult content:

SmugMug: It offers robust privacy controls, but you should check their terms regarding adult content.
Dropbox: Known for its sharing capabilities, Dropbox allows you to share links to your files and folders. Again, ensure to review their content policies.
Google Drive: Similar to Dropbox, it allows file sharing with specific people or through link sharing. Be mindful of Google's content policies, though.
OnlyFans: Popular for adult content creators, it allows sharing content with subscribers.
ManyVids: This platform is geared towards adult content creators and offers various ways to share content, including paid and free options.
