Am I the only one that have issue with viewing imgur pictures(and possibly others) embedded on the site?
It happens for me too. My browser shows a small blue square with an white question mark in it, but if I try to reply the picture will look fine in the reply. Weird. Also I can see avatars without any problems.
Yeah that is the exact same problem I am having. Have tried several browsers. Have cleared cookies, cashe etc. Updated whatever I could think of. Nothing seems to help. Sounds like its on Imgurs end.
I don't think it's an issue of here specifically, I've seen similar things happen on other xenforo forums before.
Lol what?Hi there,
Thanks for reaching out. I'd be happy to try to clear this up. This forum has been blocked from hotlinking due to abuse of the Imgur tos, which prohibit using Imgur as a content delivery network. That means that website elements such as buttons, banners, avatars, frames, image libraries, etc. cannot be hosted on Imgur. While we welcome users to share Imgur content with forums, we found that they were in violation of the ToS by Imgur as a CDN, resulting in the block. A workaround might be to use the Imgur embed unit to share Imgur images, if your forum allows it. This article contains more information on embed links:https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/204766005-Image-Album-Embed
Please let me know if you have any other questions; I'd be happy to help.

Are they saying they aren't a site meant to be used to host images? That they are image sharing site. Where you can upload content and share with other users of imgur, yet not share it with other people else where?Lol what?
I guess we need to find another site to host our images..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. If you do – and we will be the judge – or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it.
This is BS... The whole Imgur system is set up to function as a way to store images you link to from elsewhere. It even provides BBCodes for your pictures etc... It has galleries you can collect the images in and link to... Everything screams "We are an image hosting site, come use us"...Yep, also from their ToS:

Yep, that's very true.This is BS... The whole Imgur system is set up to function as a way to store images you link to from elsewhere. It even provides BBCodes for your pictures etc...

Could it possibly be peoples use of Imgur hosted images in signatures that have triggered it?I believe it's more regarding us using imgur images in the page content such as buttons or logos as they say. I'm not sure how our site would have been flagged up for this as we don't do that for any buttons or any elements loaded on every page. It's possible that it's been flagged because we use a lot of images in posts including news posts on our homepage but I can't imagine imgur would have an issue with images being used in forum posts.
EDIT: I've just wrote to imgur to see if we can get this sorted
