Yay.

Good luck linking that anywhere.

This keeps getting pushed back and back, bump.

I don't know why I didn't notice this topic sooner, because I have a lot of complaints with this new system.

In addition to my FlagCounters not working (which has been mentioned several times already and I really don't mind too much), I had to spend an hour and a half yesterday compressing down a .gif for my userpage because i.ppy has a content size limit for images. Embedding an animation I created, uploaded, and hosted myself is now nearly impossible because it has to go through the cache which has a 4MB limit for size. (Not to mention I feel bad for possibly wasting valuable space if images will eventually be deleted over time like with puush.)

Also I often have a slow connection, and the images from i.ppy take a considerable amount of time to show up, and half the time I don't even realize there was an image until I get halfway down the page and images randomly load and scroll the entire topic down a page or two.

Adding my own problem even though it's probably mentioned;

Flag counter isn't working, it's only adding people from the US and I've had people from several regions check in if it works which it obviously doesn't..

Yeah, that's actually my main complaint with flagcounter, too. I want to know where my visitors are from - if I didn't, I'd probably use a fancier visitor count. Which I don't need, quite frankly.

Flagcounter is a "nice" thing to have to people that care about it but it alone isn't near enough initiative to revert to the way things were.
What SHOULD be initiative to at least provide people the option to opt out is that the features added annoy a LOT of people, they break more than just redundant flag counters, and are offline a lot. Lazyloading, for example, gets a lot of complaints and relied on community support to fix what a notable amount of users considered unbearably annoying fade-in. The community should not be the one to fix what the service adds, especially when a vocal albeit lesser part of the community complains about it, undoubtedly with another minority that also is disappointed with changes however is most likely either lacking in communicative skills or motivation to complain.
Flag counters are a stupid way of saying a couple of things

1. "OMG IM SO FIRETRUCKING FAMOUS"
2. "I WANNA BE FAMOUS"
3. "I HAVE MORE FLAGS DAN U SCRUB IMMA BASH U WITH MEH TABLET & KEYBOARD M8"
4. "OMG SOMEONE VISITED MY PAGE HURR HURR I GOT AN ORGASM"

TL;DR
Flags are a pathetic way of saying "I'm famous" or "My stalkers, lol" rather than someone actually looking at your stats

at least I am honest.

On-Topic: I don't know why some people are butthurt by Flag counters. Yo do not have to react on these things, right? So let people keep using it. However let us stop this silly discussion about Flag counters and aim for the main problem here.

Yeah.

Loading .gifs takes longer than forever.
.gifs occasionally break entirely.
Links are fucked beyond belief.
Linking i.ppy links with img tag doesn't work.

Nudge if I forgot something.

I'm not sure if these are related but could this problem in this thread be related to this one? t/219567
Avatars are disappearing

This problem still have no attention by moderators/administators.
It's sad.... :(

Apparently the image proxy is hosted in New York, so you will only get one flag counter view per 24 hours (or whatever setting you have it on) from the US even if 500 people visit your profile in that time. I have confirmed this because I have a second flag counter for US regions, in which NY has climbed to #1 even though it only had like 3 viewers before this change.

Avatars are not related.
I will fix re-linking images on forum
Flag counter breaking is intended (protects users from DDoS etc.)
Lazy loading can and will be improved (scrolling to a particular post) and is not related to the image proxy.
Large gifs (>5mb) breaking is intended (I don't want that 20mb shit on here; use external links).
Load times are faster than ever, as all images are CDN'd to all countries now.
