    If you got negative points, maybe the image wasn't funny or a repost? The problem is your image, not something else. How many images you tried posting?

    Imgur is likely a bunch of Reddit users (it was heavily promoted on Reddit, so they don't fall for the same crap as facebook or twitter users do. HQ unique images or you'll keep getting negative votes. Imgur also doesn't like monetizing methods so if you aren't branding yourself as a expert artist or some authority tutorial channel forget it, and go click your cpa ads yourself.

    Imgur's audience is basically Reddit.

    Broke college types with zero money and mid-30's to 40's hipsters with money to spend and plenty of bullshit to say.

    Imgur is mainly for watermarked images rather than linking in the comments.

    If you choose to watermark you will be easily able to utilize affiliate marketing without having the risk to get shut down or cut off from being indexed.

    Post porn pics to NSFW subs and then link/watermark to cam sites.

    Even with watermarking you have to be discret when monetizing imgur or reddit. You have to make it look like it was ripped from a professional photographer(SFW or NSFW).

    That's a really good find Paper-Boy. Definitely not worth the money they're charging for the PDF but I was surprised that there's actually good info in there.

    People are earning from shitty methods and you are complaining that you get neg. points, lol. :p Be innovative, do something new. If you are really interested in driving traffic through images then why don't you create new memes/comics/funny pics. To earn from this you have to make something good, which people can find funny/share-worthy. :)
