    Huh.

    When I close the browser and then re-open it, the image disappears, but when I click on the image and view it, if I refresh, it shows up again.

    Long story short....When you refresh the image while viewing it directly in your browser, your browser isn't telling Imgur that you're loading the image from a page on giantitp.com (because you're not); so it gives you the image. And once the image is loaded, your browser is being like "oh wait, I still remember this image from when I loaded it the last time; I don't need to try to go get it again" when it sees references to it elsewhere...like on giantitp.com .

    other than that, since i make my avatars for the most part, i host mine on deviant art. the issue i have there is the image links are super long and only fit in the allotted space for avatar links if the title is super short on the image itself. Do you think the staff would consider increasing the character limit on the custom avatar space?
    I wrote an email to Imgur; they said they've banned hotlinking but permit embedding... however all my attempts to use the embed code failed (as you can see from the gibberish post upthread haha).

    Never mind, they've replied to say that both hotlinking and embedding have been disabled... ;_;

    Nice to see that Imgur wants to just stop being Imgur. Why bother using it otherwise really. On top of the gifs in comments that kill loading times...this is a really weird move. Guess it's time to find another site.

    I've having trouble even accessing the part of "My Profile" that lets me alter my avatar. The option just isn't there; I had to go to the FAQ and find a link there. Has anyone else had that particular issue?

    For me, it's "Settings" (top right of screen) --> "General Settings" (under "My Settings") --> scroll down to the bottom. Not sure if that helps.

    Gah, thank you. In my defense, it's been like seven years.

    I guess they want to be a standalone image sharing social community.

    Unfortunately, the community is awful.

    Yup, they are pretty much dead as a sight now, as they wont even let me link a bloody image. In any event, i just found Postimg.cc and they seem ok to me so far. They're free and dont seem to demand anything other than your email.
