I have recently tried illustrating answers on stackoverflow with images created by:

  1. Drawing image in Inkscape

  2. Saving image in Cairo .png format

  3. Uploading it from my computer to an answer via the ctrl-G option.

However, both times I tried this (e.g. at this answer ) I have received comments that people have been unable to view the diagram.

I'll also attempt to add the same diagram here: enter image description here

However, I always seem to be able to view the images myself (even if I use different browsers (firefox/chrome), and different computers, and even if I am not logged in as myself).

My question is why are some people unable to view these images? (and is there a different approach to creating diagrams that I should use instead?)

Yes indeed, many work places and ISP's are blocking imgur domain. See this post. – Shadow Wizard Jul 6 '12 at 11:50
Thanks a lot, I'll try to stick to text diagrams in future then. – Peter de Rivaz Jul 6 '12 at 12:01
@PeterdeRivaz: No, not if an image is better. – Time Traveling Bobby Jul 6 '12 at 13:01
