RQ: Because Imgur decided to start sucking, it's no longer possible to share private albums using the website or the app, so user account URLs like mine http://arekeeoo.imgur.com no longer shows you all the fluffy albums I have. Which sucks because that's the URL I put on most of my imgur archive booru posts. You have to go to each album directly or else you can't find them. So I'm making a new post to let ya'll know about that. Also added the tag "imgur" to all imgur album posts on my my 'booru account.

cuis: Anything that seems too good to be true, like someone giving a service free of charge, turns out to be some scheme.
These sites offer free of charge services to attract users, and once they hit some critical mass they change their terms.

MostlyHereToLurk: Thanks for the links!

Wonder if this is related to that Article 13 thing.

RQ: @MostlyHereToLurk: Nah, imgur's decline began before that.

Disintegral: Thanks for this. Imgur's been going downhill for ages, but there's not many alternatives that are large, estabilised, or usable enough to be relied on for the mid-to-long term.

@cuis: Imgur has actually become the very thing it was designed to be an alternative for (clunky-ass image hosts that prioritise ad revenue, etc. over usability). That's what happens when a free service that's designed with the best intentions becomes profitable.

Disintegral: Oh, and here's a small album with a few more Wolframs: https://imgur.com/a/vBa3VBA

I think Fluffwit sent it to me, not 100% sure.

RQ: @Disintegral: imgur was built on porn. I didn't even partake, but I knew it was true. There was a site called "imgur roulette" that showed random images and you'd always run into a sick pic there. So imgur is denying and rejecting the audience that made then successful in the first place, just used and discarded.

So, my favorite aspect of fluffies is how they're a metaphor for human existence.

Disintegral: @cuis: It was originally designed by a college student as a small thing in his spare time, so not really.

@RQ: Yeah, I remember the randomiser thing. Definitely seems like you could pull an analogy or two out of Imgur's decline and transplant it into a fluffy story.

RQ: TIL: if you're browsing any album on mobile, imgur will only show 10 pics at a time before showing you ads and viral shit you didn't ask for. You have to keep pressing this blue button to keep viewing the actual album you came in to fucking see in the first place. Also a stickied ad for their shitty app shows on screen too. (BTW you can upload video clips with sound on imgur, but *only* through the app, not on PC, because fuck you).

Anonymous2: @guodzilla:
That a good idea. If you have some pictures, we could compose an album on imgur. But if you choose to do so, don't do it as an imgur anon, because then you cannot edit the album to add anything later. You'd need an account.

@whateverman:
Was it a story or artwork? Most of his deleted text stories were lost, alas :(
