Imgur is an image hosting and image sharing community with over 275 million monthly visitors to its platform on a monthly basis. The website was started in 2009 as a gift to Reddit’s online community and a solution to Reddit’s image hosting problems. Over the years Imgur became one of the biggest community websites in the world. Imgur and NSFW which is used to go hand in hand would no longer display Imgur NSFW subsections on Reddit. 

Why did Imgur stop NSFW uploads on Reddit?

According to a post from Imgur, the posts on NSFW over the years have put Imgur’s users and business at risk which is why Imgur stopped NSFW uploads on Reddit.

Imgur pointed out to Reddit’s moderation which could be improved in order to solve this problem. Over the years it has put Imgur business at risk, according to the image-sharing company. 

Imgur has its own community of users who are known as “Imgurians”. The company’s mission is to be a fun place on the internet and also to its users which is one of the reasons why Imgur and NSFW didn’t work out.
