Imgur is down with Over Capacity Giraffe

By Alan Ng - Oct 16, 2015

Those of you who regularly use image hosting website Imgur, will be unhappy to find out that Imgur is down on October 16, with what looks to be an ongoing Imgur ‘Over Capacity’ problem.

We’ve been trying to access the site ourselves, but couldn’t and were instead treated to that lovely graphic of the Giraffe repeatedly.

A quick check on social media and it looks like others are having issues with Imgur not working today too. However, on the official Imgur Twitter page there is no indication that Imgur maintenance for Oct 16 would be taking place.


Hopefully the developers are aware of the issue and are already working on a solution to get Imgur back up.

Have you noticed that Imgur is down in your area as well? We’ll update this with status updates as necessary.
