IMGUR loading up problems April 22, 2020

Post by BigSaint »

Is anyone else having this problem & I have removed the "S":
It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.

I made one post this morning & it was fine. My next post on same thread a few minutes later threw up these issues.

I checked that sizes of image all within 800 x 600 size & they were. I even tried one that was 640 x 480, same issue.

Went to edit the post that I had made this morning & when I pressed preview it now came up with the same issue (even though it had posted perfectly a few minutes before.) :?

Bazza

Have you reported this to IMGUR?

If not can you please. I would do it except that I have online business meeting to attend in a few minutes.

Thanks

OK this first image I loaded last night in IMGUR -

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=90328

And it shows fine.

Now when I add that same IMGUR code link in this post it gives the

It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.

Barry .. can you please forward me the exact wording on the message you sent IMGUR please?

I'd appreciate if such issues can ALWAYS be directed to me FIRST please folks in EVERY instance.

We had a small issue with IMGUR in the past, that was resolved quickly and smoothly, and I know who to contact directly there.

Folks NEVER contact IMGUR directly on such matters please. ALWAYS do it via Admin.

Same here, I don't know why we have to use only Imgur I have all my pictures on Flickr and Photobox.

Hope it gets fixed soon.....is it something to do with staffing during lockdown.

I also experienced the Imgur "unrecognised size" problem
when I was working in the Happy Day thread, and posted
a report about it here:

I have added the following comments on the Happy Day thread.
https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=82193&start=3542

I hope they accurately and helpfully state the current position.
If I haven't got it quite right, I hope the Sherriff will post any
necessary correction:
RogerE wrote:The current status is that it has been reported to Imgur,
but apparently it has not yet been resolved...
The Sherriff has requested any communication with
Imgur should be through him, he has had some
communication with Imgur, and presumably he will
keep us informed by posting on the new thread, at
the url reported above.

April 23, 2020 update. https://www.IMGUR.com have a tech issue - whatever you try to load here, gets a "dimensions cannot be recognised" in red error message.

Do not waste your time trying - very annoying, they once were great and reliable - like photobucket once was. :roll: :roll: :roll:

We are working with them now to try and sort it, and will post here if we do, but in the MEANTIME -

We suggest you use the free https://www.imgbox.com or the even better https://www.imageshack.com - simple to use - see tutorial below. I use them all the time.

Since the crazy $500 a year photobucket Ransom demand of latter 2017, ruining 100,000s of older images here, we no longer want to see ANY images to be posted here using photobucket. In 2019 they started doing idiotic things like adding massive ad ''watermarks'' to YOUR photos, and/or blurring images for non paid accounts. Do NOT ever use photobucket - once our preferred hoster.

Use only use the free https://www.imgbox.com or the even better https://www.imageshack.com IMGBOX has pop up to racy ads appear now and again, so some prefer not to use it. (so always check the FAMILY CONTENT box as shown!) But do NOT close or delete your photobucket or IMGUR account, as an army of volunteers here have quietly moved 100,000s of them to our own server. Near one MILLION of them actually. 8)

https://www.imgbox.com is totally free, and simple to use - here are the basics -
Image
Image

Image
Choose the ''800 x 800 RESIZED'' from the drop down choices. If you choose ''SQUARE'', any oblong stamp will post here SQUARE, or will show cropped off entirely at top or sides. :)
Image

Choose link in the ''BB CODE'' option as shown at right - and as always manually delete the letter "s" after ''https'' from this string you copy, as you need to do on all images under current software.

https://www.imageshack.com is a cinch to use -

The update to the new phpBB software soon means images should be able to be loaded direct to each thread. In the meantime please bear with us!
