Randimg not working?

POSTED: Fri Jan 20, 2017 1:49 pm

I've noticed on a few profiles/signatures that their avatar or a rotating adoptable icon is no longer working? :O All of these seem to be using randimg.net? I've used multiple browsers, and nothing is changing on my end, so, was wondering if it's perhaps the site? I don't have a random imaging account, so, I wouldn't know anything about the site? Just thought I'd ask and see if anyone else was noticing "broken" images? x3

I did too, which is why i switched my one randimg one to static. I think randimg might be breaking since they use imgur as the host?

Yup randimg has been down since yesterday. It was back up briefly yesterday afternoon and then went down again.

I'm wondering if imgur finally blocked them since that's where randimg hosts stuff, but imgur thinks they're a social networking site now and block sites as they find them using images as avatars or other website components.

The entire randimg site is down though (can't access the homepage), so I dunno.

It could also be a DDoS attack, exacerbated by use as avatars.
