Is there any plan to take care of broken imgur image-links?
They look like this:
(This picture is taken from Bill Dubuque's answer here which was posted not even two months ago—look at the revision history and scroll down in order to see how it looked before I fixed it a moment ago)
ctrl-G inserts a link of the form
After a few months, these links seem to expire, but they can be fixed by removing the
.stack-part of the link.
An answer using or even depending on images can be rendered rather worthless when these links are not guaranteed to be persistent, as witnessed by Bill's answer which changed from an interesting answer into a mere and imprecise reference.
My understanding is that imgur.com guarantees that the images are preserved as long as they are accessed frequently enough.
So, I guess I stated the question at the beginning, but here's a short version again:
What should be done about this?
Added: Of course, it would be advisable to formulate questions and answers in such a way that the images are only supplementary information (if possible), but e.g. a question on elementary geometry can often be asked and answered much more easily and comprehensibly by posting a picture.
