Personal Information – One important thing to remember when you’re posting stuff on Imgur is that the people who are viewing your post are likely fellow users. They can see things like how many points you have, whether or not you’re verified, and what type of posts you generally make. The system works pretty well for identifying fakes, but that doesn’t mean that people will be kind about it.

Sensitive Information – People really hate sensitive information being posted on Imgur. These things include: SSNs, Credit Card Numbers, Addresses, Phone Numbers, and anything else that can be used to identify you or someone you know personally. To avoid something like this from happening, many people post the information in the comments, which then gets deleted by an admin. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t be posting sensitive information; it just means that you should keep it all on lock down.

How long does imgur keep images

The Imgur team states that they will never delete an image unless it breaks the rules or if it was uploaded by mistake. That said, there is a way you can delete your images before they get to the public eye: by deleting them while you upload them. Previous versions of imgur had a “delete after uploading” option in settings, but the newest version doesn’t have it. To get your images back after deleting them while uploading, use a web based service like KeepVid to download them from Imgur.

What time zone is imgur in?

The Imgur team states that they can not be held responsible for any issues that arise from you posting or viewing images in different time zones. If you are trying to communicate or meet with someone from another time zone, the best thing you can do is be aware of your differences and act accordingly.

How old do you have to be to use imgur?

The Imgur team states that anyone above 13 years old can sign up for Imgur, but that they cannot be held responsible for people who lie about their age. The best way to ensure you’re not going to run into an issue is by being honest on your profile and respecting others while using the site.

What should I never post on imgur?

The Imgur team states that the following things are not allowed:

Pornographic images, sexual content and nudity. These can be posted, but they must first be marked as NSFW (Not Safe For Work). Racism, hatred, and all other forms of bigotry. This includes “jokes” that use stereotypes or othering language. Also, Imgur does not allow the sharing of images made with the sole purpose of inciting online arguments.

Images of things like gore, mutilation, physical damage to someone’s body, and bodily fluids are also not allowed. Automatically generated content (macros, etc). These images can be funny, but they have a pattern to them. Imgur doesn’t want these images cluttering up the site for others.

Unauthorized copyrighted material. This includes screenshots of other people’s desktop or mobile screens, and video captures from movies and TV shows.

How many points on imgur

The Imgur team states that points are used to recognize the best post on the site in any given hour. If someone’s post gets more than 1,000 upvotes, they get a special badge beside their username in the comments. The only people who can see this badge are users who look at “top” posts or go to .
