Please make IMGUR compatible

As we all know IMGUR linked images on HB are corrupted. You have to manually right click and View Image.

Now there is an alternative we can all use which is tinypic but tinypic is very troublesome because you can only upload one image at a time, while imgur you can upload multiple photos at a time and even create an album without registration.

hey there, to be honest we're not restricted or limited to any existing image services there are out there. All that bbcode img needs is the URL to the image (not the page), i.e usually the link will end in .jpg, .png, .gif

hmm with some quick investigation, their image path seems to be a fake path so that they cannot be hotlinked.
Lemme just read up on their services.

From their Terms and Conditions I found this.

If someone else might own the copyright to it, don’t upload it.

Don’t hotlink to such content, or to file-sharing or torrent sites. Don’t be a troll or a jerk. Don't impersonate someone else. If you do (and we will be the judge), or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it.


Meaning that you cannot hotlink the images but can only share the image path. Plus even if you managed to hotlink it and bbcode into our site, we would get into trouble.
