We shouldn't have one. That kind of relationship isn't really beneficial to the users in the long run. Use what works.

I agree! If it works, and it works well, then why not use it? Eventually one might come out on top, but let that form organically.

Yeah, I don't think we should have One. That kind of thing results in the Reddit/Imgur bullshit we see over there. And honestly I got pretty sick of people bitching when something wasn't on Imgur. Use whichever works for you. As long as I can access the image I don't care who is hosting it.

What if it was possible that there could be an image viewer just as part of Voat? That could avoid a lot of problems if there wasn't a whole other website that we had to rely on.

I remember Atko saying somewhere that an inhouse image hosting service is in the works. So Voat will be using Voat to host images in the future if it works out.

I vote for Veuwer. It's made by a voater for Voat.

Like many of the recommended image hosts, it's based in the US, which means it is bogged down with privacy implications. Since voat is not in the US, why would any image host be?

CubeUpload is based in the UK, if you prefer that. Are there any reputable Swiss image hosts that we could use?

Actually, voat currently relies on CloudFlare, which is US-based.

There's an annoying resolution bug in their image library though.

My only problem with Slimgur is it's name. Otherwise, it's pretty darn good.

Things like this can't be forced. The Voat community won't all of the sudden decide. It will be a natural progression that one might become the default. If one is clearly better than the other for some reason then there's a good chance it will be popular.....but not always.....witness BetaMax.

It's going to be Slimgur, no matter which is better technically. Because Veuwer made the mistake of naming their website Veuwer. It's awkward to spell and let's face it we're all fucking lazy, and Slimgur is the easiest to remember. Only had to add two letters.

Also, I just tried opening both and Slimgur loaded right away veuwer is still trying to.

Slimgur loaded right away and viewer.com gave me a 502 Bad Gateway error.

Stuff like this makes these type of decisions much easier.

I really don't understand why people are so fast to conform and band themselves to one service. I get really annoyed how often people recommend Veuwer simply because 'it was made by a Voater'. Is it a good service? Doesn't matter. It was made by a Voat user so we need to support it. Fuck that.

I suggest people just use whatever works for them. I used pomf.se before it was shut down because I liked its simplicity and how it just functioned well. Now that that's gone I'm using a pomf clone, maxfile.ro. I didn't care for veuwer when I was looking at it, and slimgur isn't my thing either. I don't care about having a image hosting site with a community, I just want a place to upload and share files easily.

I assume you're referring to Veuwer. Granted, it may have improved immensely since the last time I checked it out a few weeks ago, but it still has a 10MB max file size and only accepts a few image formats, which just doesn't fit my needs. I often use maxfile to share music and documents, neither of which Veuwer can support. I'm sure it's great if you only need a file sharing service to share pictures, but I'm not going to use it and bounce between sites.

I still prefer imgur, it is clean, easy to use, and fast...

If something new comes along which is better, then i switch :)

As long as it isn't imgur, does it really matter? Restricting users to one image loader will suck, so let there be no official image loader.
