Seems like imgur has changed something.
This already happened several times in the past with this provider. A few days later anything worked again without changing anything.

Probably not this time.

imgur api v1 and v2 have been discontinued

Hopefully shotty can change to v3.

Thanks for the link.


I will not update the imgur part in Shotty.

In their new licence it says:
"Commercial Usage
Your application is commercial if you're making any money with it (which includes in-app advertising), if plan on making any money with it, or if it belongs to a commercial organization."


Even I have received only about 80€ within 4 years (about 1,66€ a month) with donations, this makes Shotty to a commercial application in their eyes.
And commercial applications needs to pay to get upload access. I will not support this behaviour; I will not pay for something that I don't use and I don't get (noticeable) money for.

Sorry for that, but you may understand it.

Nothing.

Since the beginning of Shotty, our image provider (images.devs-on.net) is designed for temporary images, just to show it to other peoples over the internet, for support reason or whatever. They expires after some time, default setting is 3 Months. Also you can set it to 1 day if you want to. After that time the image gets automatically deleted.

The reason is simple.
We already have received over 1.5 million screenshots. Our service is free and also completely free of ad's. But our server isn't. You may know, storing millions of images costs disk space. Our provider says more disk space, no problem, but you have to pay for it. Well… No. It's fine as it is.

I know, I know... But:
why did you write "6 months" in options?
http://prntscr.com/b0e3p6
why not 7 days?

The option exists.
You can select between 1 day, 1 week (= 7 days), and 1, 3 or 6 months.

3 months is the default setting in Shotty, unless you change it. You can do it either with the drop down arrow on the right on your screenshot or using the upload dialog (if "show configuration before upload" is enabled).

but (for what?.) why for: 6 months,3 months, even - 1 month?? :) :) It doesn't work (for a relatively long time... I know something about it)
imgur.com - it doesn't work too, so - what imgur's doing in the options?

The image expiration works, but yes, we had a problem some time ago. We got flooded with screenshots from an online game. Now we know that Microsoft's Globally Unique Identifier is anything else than unique. Several screenshots gots unavailable or overwritten. But this was happened about 1 or 2 years ago. Also this bug is fixed now.

The imgur is included into the source code of Shotty. So it will remain there until an Update comes out. It is not possible to remove it wihtout an update.
Also I have added the imgur support before the licence change described above. Before that the service was free.
