(HELP) Imgur not working

Postby Sherechia » Wed Apr 21, 2021 10:27 pm

Right so yesterday Imgur just doesn't work, every time I open Imgur it keeps showing "internet baik" aka good internet from the Indonesian Government so I fear they may have blocked the website. I have 2 options right now, install a VPN or find an alternative.

If you know a VPN that's FREE and can access blocked content please do tell me.

If you also know an alternative to Imgur that's reliable, please do also tell me.

imgbb.com usually works well enough for me as an image host. For a free VPN, I know of Windscribe, it has a data limit but can be set to various different locations in the world.

Just use discord, make a private server, upload the pic to that server, copy the image link, paste that between [img] and the end tag, and there you go! :)

Actually, Discord images are banned and won't work on the forums.

You might also want to check if Windscribe (or any other VPN you are using) has a way to provide you a static IP server or a dedicated IP address. This might be useful if you have a service that also blocks VPNs, which is an increasingly common occurrence nowadays. VPN connections are easily blocked because they switch IPs very frequently. A static IP takes away this identification, so you can use a VPN and appear like an ordinary user. Static servers may come for free, but dedicated IP addresses are usually paid-for add-ons.

I'd suggest Post Images. I personally don't like Imgur, for many reasons. But, Post Images has never given me any trouble, and it's incredibly user friendly. Hope this helps.
I support capitalism, LGBTQ+ rights, women's rights, democracy, gun control, the WA, moderators, being who you are, etc.
I stand against oppressive governments, communism, fascism, etc.

I actually tried using post images once and there was nothing wrong with it. However, I did saw plenty of negative reviews of post images so that scares me a bit.
