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.

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.

    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."
