Imgur Drops Support For NSFW Subreddits:

Image-sharing site Imgur will no longer support Reddit’s NSFW communities, citing risks to its own business, as per the blog post published article.

As per the post: “As of Oct 2019, Imgur will no longer display NSFW Imgur r/subsections associated with Reddit subreddits.”

According to the company, the pages that are famous for such content “will now require that a user login and acknowledge that they are 18+ years of age to view.”

However, Imgur said to the Redditors that the company will not delete any legal content that has been uploaded earlier. All earlier posted content will still be present with its original URL for viewing.

According to the post, Note safe for work (NSFW) content will even now stay lawful on the site, and clients will at present have the option to transfer such content if they are set apart as ‘hidden’.

Imgur says it was forced to go forward with this step because, “These pages have put Imgur’s user growth, mission, and business at risk. We want Imgur to be a fun and entertaining place that brings happiness to the Internet for many, many years to come. Thus, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue support for these subsections on Imgur.”

For Redditors looking for alternative sites to upload risque content to adult sub-Reddits, Imgur recommended they utilize a few outsider administrations or third-party services, Redditery and Redditgrid, two of which have fewer hang-ups over such content. It will be intriguing to perceive how Redditors will react to these changes, however passing by their underlying responses, relatively few are glad about the turn of events.
