Stupid lying Imgur. You're supposed to be able to upload PNGs up to 5MB and it'll keep the original quality, if they go over that it'll convert them to lower-quality JPGs. I noticed it's started converting my images UNDER 5MB to JPGs! After looking around for quite a while (they surreptitiously got rid of their Imgur community forums back in May, looks like--no announcement about it), I found the FAQ and it still says 5MB and under. Lies! These are the sizes of recent PNGs of mine that were converted to crappy JPGs.
3.38MB--wow NOT converted!--I think this must be around when this started, five days ago, July 8
I really wish I had some other Imgur users I could discuss this with, see if I'm the only one. But their community forums are gone.
I notice they're introducing some new paid version of the site and can't help but think that connects to this. Really nice, degrade the quality of images without notifying users, get rid of the community forum without notifying users, but hey, spam the crap out of them begging them to pay for...what, stupid little badges near their names? Cool.
They could update their s****y FAQ to reflect these changes...
If there was only a way to replace my older Tumblr images with newer ones I'd try to find a way to upload to Flickr and just link them from there. Already a paid user. But of course there isn't. And it'll take me ages to upload all my stuff to Flickr by now.
Stupid s****y site. Already had to give up DeviantArt because they made it so absolutely nobody will be able to find the work of nobodies like me. -_-
If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Det. Devetko: "Definitely."
