Imgur image processing after uploading an image is slow again: it used to be below 1 second for the past few weeks, and now it is back to over five seconds. Tested on different connections, different computers, and different locations (Paris and California). In rare cases (<10%) the Imgur image processing is below 1 second (seems like the first upload is fast and all the subsequent ones are slow).

  • No repro. Fast for me. Might be related to location. Dec 9, 2020 at 7:24
  • Hmm, Paris should be close enough to me (Israel) so yeah, weird. Dec 9, 2020 at 7:25

    @Shadow10YearsWizard Note that my first upload in Paris was quick. All subsequent uploads were slow. Dec 9, 2020 at 7:26

    True. Now each upload takes 3-5 seconds. Dec 9, 2020 at 7:33

    After waiting for a while (~40 minutes), cycle starts over: first upload was fast, then subsequent uploads are slow. Looks like some rate limit that went too strict, perhaps? Dec 9, 2020 at 8:17

    Yep tried adding some images from paint, it slowed down after the 1st upload screen recorded - link
