Thanks for telling us!

I really didn't want to have to move to the fourth image host.

Nah, Imgoat is here to stay.

Any word on the reason the site is being moved? Any relation to the idea that "free-speech" is being violated on the internet, yet again?

probably been threatened by the host for all the reddit libs posting CP even though disco seems to remove it within hours every time it pops up

The CP thing is goddamn annoying, these shills have been trying to take down Imgoat for almost as long as it's been alive. Thankfully, my host knows what's up and gives me an opportunity to deal with it personally. But that's not why I'm migrating...

I'll post a more detailed explanation later, but it's basically this:

Imgoat is slow, and it's kinda dumb for me to keep pouring money into a site that goes down all the time. I'd rather drop $400 per month on something that works, something that people love to use, rather than cutting corners, spending $80 on something that tops out at 50 in a 75.

This move guarantees Imgoat will be bigger, better, and lightning-fucking-fast. I'm not sure if any of you actually used the site back when it first launched, but it was much, much better then. No downtime. No bullshit.

Hmmm once your moved I think I might switch from kek.gg, that place is a void of info and it worries me. It's nice to see a responsive dev and an active goat.

I used to support Kek – arguing that, as long as it didn't turn into Imgur 2.0, it was worth considering alongside options like Imgoat and ImgTC. I dunno, though. Kek is far from transparent, and the dude running it doesn't seem to give a shit about us - contacting him is near impossible. He doesn't even have a support page or public email address, and refuses to respond to geniune concerns like Kek scraping user-data.

I'm hoping to change that with Imgoat, to be more open, transparent and approachable.

Yea thats my concern, the lack of transparency. I figured he was scraping user data but like I said I couldn't find any real data on the site so I only suspected. Well glad to hear that you are listening to users and trying to be transparent. I think you just earned a new user, brother goat.
