I can't seem to post any images from any SE website. I get the error below. The uploader on their website seems to work fine as I uploaded the screen shot there.

I'm counting down the five months until Stack Exchange's current agreement with Imgur expires... – Jeremy Banks Jan 16 '12 at 19:30
@Jeremy But then we'll only have about 6 months until the world ends. Hmph. – Andrew Barber Jan 16 '12 at 19:32

Imgur was having storage issues again. We just got a mail assuring us that everything should be back up now.

The reason for that particular message is just that they're returning a 503 status code. And since that's not listed in their list of errors the API may return, you're getting our catch-all error message.

I'll add the 503 response to the list of responses that cause the "an error occured at imgur" message, that's more fitting in probably all cases.

… so we don't have to blame you guys ;) – slhck Jan 16 '12 at 19:37
Thanks for the answer! :D Perhaps you should have it say "A unicorn tried to divide by zero with the guys at imgur and the resulting argument was invalid." – BloodPhilia Jan 16 '12 at 19:41
