Imgur is going to start deleting all files uploaded anonymously and everything containing NSFW content (likely determined by using AI).
As part of an ongoing archival effort I would like to request an SQL dump of all the (publicly accessible) site data that contains the phrase "*imgur*".

In case that request wouldn't be fulfilled, would you like to try with HttpTrack or similar?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTrackhttps://www.httrack.com
By everyone who is interested in preserving this stuff. I'm not actually involved with the imgur downloading part. I just collect and submit any links I can.>HTTrack
I have a bunch of scrapers I could use for this. But scraping a website takes time and runs the risk of getting blacklisted by the website. It's also possible to miss something if the scraper isn't configured properly.
A dump would be significantly faster and easier for everyone involved.
