Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
