Unfortunately I've already emailed them, but I did not specify anything about the site beyond asking if we were blacklisted. Once I get some form of reply, I plan to turn it over to lucid.

Alternatively he could just host profile pics himself, and contact imgur to let them know their service will only be used for image links in message boards.
Quite frankly having our own means of hosting images for the site seems like something reasonable and within the realm of best solutions, although this would end up with something along the lines of a rework of how we display images on our profiles.

Okay good to hear.

Yeah what we're using right now is just a hacky solution he implemented a long time ago that saves some money for the site, but if it's being cracked down on, hosting profile bio images himself for people shouldn't be a big expense.

In my opinion, using Imgur to decorate a profile doesn't violate the TOS.
from imgur.com/tos:
"About images, you upload
You can upload images anonymously and share them online with only the people you choose to share them with."

Using Imgur on our profiles is just us sharing our pictures online.

Banners are the problem.

If there's worry about using too much space in hosting, then a simply solution would be to limit the number of images allowed on a profile, or set a total space limitation per user (Such that you can't host more than 5mb worth of images.) Although to be fair, at the current price of storage, and the average size of images, it should be reasonable to not have to do this.

Unfortauntely what breaks imgur's TOS isn't really up for us to decide. We can make a case if they say profile images are against them, but I doubt they'd budge for a small site as ours.

They would treat profile bio pictures in the same way they treat avatars.

Updating:

I have not heard anything back from them at all. I'm unsure if I should try to send another, or just forward all of this to administration and ask them to send it to lucid. Anyone want to weigh in?

i switched all of my profile images to gyazo. you can download an extension for your browser (which sucks) but it seems like its the best option right now.

also, if someone can ask lucid to allow hosting of images from epicmafia.com or em-uploads.s3.amazonaws.com that would be great

mine disappeared, then I went to my bio to go to the imgur links to dl so I could transfer to another service once i canceled out of my bio edit and I can see them again???
numbSep 10, 2019

Hosting images on your own is a bad idea, will take so much space and money in the end :/

Imgur was a great hosting idea, i don't see why it's not working anymore!

If you can keep Imgur tho, that would be the best option. Do what you can to fix it thanks.

Currently players are using alternative sources or just using the comments section to post imgur links.

http://imgur.com: only works in comments
http://www.photobucket.com: have to upgrade acct to embed images here
http://www.tinypic.com: defunct
https://gyazo.com: a screenshot browser extension which works
http://puush.me: no new user registration

conclusion: gyazo works best
