I have no doubt they will get it sorted and at least it’s not your bank and all your money which happened to thousands not that long ago, I work in IT and failure to do enough tests can lead to this but also such a major change would be hard to test until all users were hitting the site, again I’m sure it will be fixed and better it’s offline to fix than half working or too slow etc and more frustration

Here is their update page https://status.flickr.net/

Rather than trying to sign into Flickr (which is once again completely down at this time 2:49pm PDT) you can paste this url into your browser. Just click it and it will tell you the status of Flickr at that time: https://status.flickr.net/

Good luck.

I have just been on Flickr which seemed ok at first allowing me to post a few photos into groups. But after a few minutes it slowed down. But the worst thing was when I checked my stats my total views had gone down by nearly six million. Anyone else lost a lot of views?

So far it's all working this morning. It took a while for my android app to work, but that's back to normal, although it has for me, always been slow and glitchy.

I follow you and did see some of your photos for a brief period yesterday. Today it does work on my phone and just started on my PC, but I can't save from Flickr to my phone.

Still flaky when I tried it about an hour ago, it took ages to log in, then said it was having problems. Ignored that and clicked on my photostream and it opened up OK then.

FWIW all my iPhone glitches with the app were resolved by updating from the App Store - something I rarely bother with normally. Ymmv.
thanks

i checked using my old flikr tab details..online laptop
and see my shots...but i cant add to groups..just galleries

logging into the new site.."new"?...its still blank

must be a lot of work to do...i did send a message to flikr on the help site...
the queue must be quite long...

will keep trying daily to update the situation

here is one from the "old" log in..strange though it has my "new" log in email

boat_amended
by mrcrow_uk, on Flickr

and one i just uploaded to the new site...do we need to use two sites now??
it is beneficial to be able to access the "old" site...?

It doesn't look any different to me - did I miss something?

I just uploaded a couple of images and it doesn't seem any different.
on this new one...the groups are different and some you may have been on arent there
what the difference to me is that in my case what i uploaded in the new one...is all i have
in the old one all my stuff is there but i cant move any to the groups i am in....just move to albums
what i think we are seeing is beyond argument really and needs a good shot of patience
what the pro's are feeling i dont know??

think i need to give it a rest...i just do this for phun...so just now its quite abortive mucking about really
cheers

It is taking forever to upload images for me :(
it seems a waste but
try downsizing them to around the 640 size....
its not totally going to work but some of my POS shots went up ok and the larger ones didnt
then again a large one did
if you are in this for just phun....the image quality isnt of great importance but what is ...is

Thanks - but it has actually been fine today so hopefully they've got it sorted.

Saw that Geoff. Nice image.

Also noticed less crap on Explore in the past few days too. Gone are the buses, trains, lego, dolls and drawings. Just hope it can last.
I've been noticing multiple images from the same photographer for a while on Explore, some that are VERY similar to the point of being taken just a minute apart like a couple of sunset pictures today and the 2 in the sewers. And some real garbage stuff too (though not the same as the above) but OOF, gaudy over-cooked and just plain poor images. Hope they get things sorted.

Geoff's image was nice though. :)

Thanks Phillip & Toni - I don't mind whatever's in explore as its never been about quality, rather an algorithm trying to gauge human perception of interesting-ness ...
I just enjoy looking at others images and sharing the images I have taken. With the hope that others will enjoy them as much as myself, and hopefully generating some social engagement - That's why I like this forum! ;)

It's like what I said earlier in the thread about coming across images with hundreds of likes and to me, they looked pants! People know how to manipulate these things for sure, like the constant hit and runners - the ones who dish out rapid fire likes across hundreds of images per day, for every dozen or so they hit they'll get a few in return. I've often had someone like a dozen or more of my images in one go and they wouldn't be in my contact list.

As for Flicker itself, it's still messed up. I cannot change my profile or cover images - I have also gotten notifications for comments on some images but when I check through there's no new comment there. Just a couple of bugs I'm noticing

I'm sure they do.
I've mentioned before, my most viewed imaged was one I tagged Armourdildo instead of Armadillo.
(it was a joke and never expected all those hits)
Quite just what they were searching for though, I have no idea :D

As above a lot of it is down to tagging I think.
I've come across some quite innocuous and totally unrelated images with "heavy" sex related tags.

I used to come across full on porn images on there years back, seems that has been stomped out for the most part . . . Or my searching skills have gotten stale :D
