Just have to go and edit your post.  Take one character out of the image link, then replace it.  The forum editor's [edited] up in that way.

I've always gone to the gallery and got the direct link for my picture posts.

I can get the direct links for JPG and PNG images, but for some reason, not for animated GIFs. Try tinypic instead.

Animated gifs usually are automatically converted to gifv/webm/mp4 after uploading them on imgur, and you are usually provided 2 links one to the gifv as the direct link and the other to the normal gif. since the forum still doesn't accept webm/gifv it doesn't let you post it or gives a broken image.

When I get a .webm link, changing it to .gif usually works. Otherwise I just open up the share links pop-up, copy the link in the BB Code section, then get rid of the [/img] bits. It never used to be so much trouble. I'm not sure why imgur changed it to the way it is now.

You'll notice that there's an "Original Gif" link on imgur's link list now. However, as has been stated a few times in this thread, it's just removing the "v" from .gifv

Saves bandwidth. is fast, has better quality, can use sound, gets rid of color palette limit, and uses less space. Is just to force people to accept the new standard and forget about gif.
