The whole debacle of the Pee-Bucket implosion is leaving it's tendrils/tentacles wide and deep across the internet! Whereas, in the past I may have considered paying a modest fee for their service, with the gouging they are now attempting, they will never get even one penny from me! I have already scarfed/retrieved any and all pics that are not otherwise available to me and will simply upload any required to some other hosting site.

Of course, their business likely went seriously downhill, with the advent of many websites and message boards providing the means to directly upload from your comfuser. Stil, the way they're handling it, as far as I'm concerned,"Let Them Drown In Their Own Pee!"

Just Sayin'

OK, I have been trying to use Imgur and I can't get anything to show up here. No avatar, not post pics. So, What am I doing wrong??

Use the Direct Link-- Select an image, then click 'Direct Link on the right side. Then use the Img tag button in your post.

You can size the image by adding a lower case 'm' or 'l' medium, large just before the .jpg extension.

[img ] Direct Link to image [/img ]

The avatar needs to be less than 6K and 120 x 150 pixels.

This is how I muddled through it on imgur. Direct Link wouldn't work so I tried BBCode.

I've never before had the courage to ask, but are you a lady who does finishing procedures or are you a man who finishes ladies? Razz Just Joking! I had the same repeated issues/messages when trying to use imgur, and found that using BBCode, as mentioned by the esteemed Mr. Clevername, gets the job done!
Have Fun,
Gene

I kept getting the error message with my avatar. First as suggested above , check that it meets the forum file size max . After that I ended up right clicking on the pic and copying " image location" and pasting that into the avatar box.

Try:

http://i.imgur.com/Hv2YWO9.jpg

There's a '?2' at the end of the URL you have-- I removed that and it worked for me.
