Yup just use https://sli.mg/ or if you have a Twatter account just tweet the a pic and direct link the picture like this. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CdLmcogUYAEW4MN.jpg

Or hotlink the image on imgur. There's no reason to link to the retarded social media version of it unless it's an album and 99% of the time, it's not an album. If it is an album, use sli.mg or something else.

If you do have to use imgur, I suggest always hot linking the image. No reason to include comments on a complete separate community (besides it's bloated and slow)

Imgur redirects hotlinks to the social media version now.

Who the fuck would downvoat you for being helpful?? I don't get this place sometimes.

There's always that one idiot. Probably a fatty. sli.mg was FPH's response to getting banned on imgur, so there's some "people" who are still salty about it. Either way you look at it, it's a better image host and doesn't take down content that would be appealing to voat.

Right, my phone sucks enough without having to wait on imgur to not load.

Downvote brigade any imgur links. Let's stop it.

Brigades are never a good plan for stopping something. We should just not upvoat them and remind them in comments to not use it

That's why I stopped using that stupid site. Their annoying "swipe to view the next post" has to be the most obnoxious "feature" I've ever encountered. Half the time, I can't zoom in exactly because of what you said. Then I hit the ← and accidentally close the tab. 😠

If someone doesn't link directly to the image, just long press on the image and go to "open image".

I don't like imgur because the WiFi services I use on my phone whilst travelling, like the public transport WiFi, have blocked imgur. They haven't blocked vuewer or slimg though.

The firewall at my job also blocks Imgur so sites like this are pretty painful during the work day.

Someone's being a dickbag to Elegon.

I hope they get stabbed in their sleep.

Meh, veuwer (or what ever it's called) loads like 25% of the time. I don't care what site someone uses, just make sure it works.

Well.... veuwer.com is down quite often, and when I try to load i.sli.mg at work I get this error:

Secure Connection Failed

The connection to i.sli.mg was interrupted while the page was loading.

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

No, but that's not the problem.

I just tried to get to i.sli.mg using MSIE, and it tells me the page is blocked by our network. Someone tagged it as "peer-to-peer". I'm not gonna risk trying to get that changed...

You could just not open those posts. Voat is a meritocracy driven by voting. If enough of you mobile users down vote or ignore then the posters will be discouraged and try other things.
