Just a reminder that with today being April 1st, the Scout feature is showing every photo of yours being awesome. That has nothing to do with bugs for the Big Huge Labs website. It is a feature we see every April 1st. Everything goes back to normal starting tomorrow.

And like the April 1st Scout, we will be seeing the Christmas Scout return starting later the day of Christmas Eve (depending on time zones) until December 26th (Boxing Day in Canada).

Just to let everybody here know, the April 1st Scout feature has returned for another year, and once again, this is a feature, NOT a bug. After today, the Scout feature returns to normal until Christmas Eve when we get the Christmas version of Scout and then back to normal until it repeats with the April 1st Scout feature.

You do not need to post anything about why you are seeing all of your photos in Explore on April 1st and at Christmas time in the Help Forum. Those topics will be deleted by staff.

Every year they have done this as long as I can remember being a BHL member. I remember the first time way back when the Flickr Help forum was on fire!! =o)
