Why does imgur block images hosted there from being visible on LL?

I've noticed that for a while now, all images posted on LL that are hosted on imgur don't show up, and you have to open their URLs and cut out the "i." from the beginning of the address in order to access them.

I'm 99% sure that this is something purposefully done by imgur, and I know it can be fixed by installing a browser extension, but the question is, why? Like seriously, the fuck? What do they gain by doing this? Is LoversLab some kind of internet ISIS now that needs to be censored, or what?

Because LL is considered a adult site and they don't want their stuff linked to on sites like this. But there is almost always a work around for their fail tactics. It has always been like this.

Don't know if that works anymore as they have a new linking setup where there is a I where the WWW should be.

becuz imgur doesn't like Loverslab, buit apparently people still support imgur for what ever reason, I dunno. Is it worth installing the hack plugin? no. Stop supporting a imageshare that sucks like imageshack when it went all paywall.

Honestly, why do people still use this filth?

iirc, the problem was using https in the picture link. If you use plain http, it shows correctly. The i, I think, has nothing to do with it.
I started this thread long ago and, as you can see, the images are still fine.

So what alternative image hosting options do we have? I'd been using postimg, but after a recent kerfuffle they had with server hosting it seems they're going down the path of forbidding adult images, making it lose a lot of its usefulness for this place.

Just to inform that postimg.org no longer allows adult images. There's a lot of adult image hosting sites, but then it seems that they also have some advertising herpes.

You can use the sames extensions for Firefox Mobile as for Firefox desktop (trust me), unless Video Download helper (I think - not tested).

Install Firefox on your shitty device. You can install practically the same addons as for the desktop browser. Install uBlock Origin, instead of AdBlock, AdBlock is trash (any version of it), trust me.

Anyone who puts trust me in their sentence shouldn't be trusted. Trust me.

No need to be an ass about it.  I'm not talking shit about your PC, am I?  And no, Firefox sucks on Android.  If it was more similar to the desktop version, sure whatever, but it's not.  I'll just stick with my default browser and open the image in a new tab instead.

Photobucket and Imageshack are complete shit, but those are mostly used by people who are very new to the internet and don't know any better. There is literally no other excuse for it.

Imgur however is a pretty good image host, at least on the technical part. What ruins it is the leadership, and especially the community. Sometimes when I'm bored I just browse images on Imgur using the sidebar and read the comments, and the people use that site are reprehensible for the most part, and not just because of the 9gag level meme-ery.

Did you try Iron? It's like Chrome minus the obsessive Google tracking. https://www.srware.net/en/software.php

 

Why don't people on LL though just upload images to LL? The Lab has perfectly good servers, and no one here is going to arbitrarily block your content because they disagree with it.   :cool:

I can try that browser.  Just hope it's not as clumsy as Chrome or Firefox for Android.

 

EDIT:  Unfortunately, it is.  It won't let me sync my bookmarks from Google Chrome.  Oh well, uninstalling.

Wich mobile devices do you use ?

Personnally, I have those ones : a Sony Xperia Z3 (smartphone) and a Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet (no need to explain :P) and Firefox runs smoothly on those ones. Back from my old Nokia N900 the old Firefox was really usable too.
