Past couple of days Scout doesnt seem to be picking up pictures from explore. Does anybody know what the issue is?

It seems to be working quite well for myself. What about it makes you think that it is not picking up photos from explore?

The complaint is not that Scout is not working, it's that it has not collected any NEW data for a couple of days.

Just now I went to Explore for yesterday:
www.flickr.com/explore/2019/03/03

And looked at the (currently-shown) top photo:
www.flickr.com/photos/earl_reinink/40297161323/in/explore...

And found the numeric photo ID of the user:
www.flickr.com/photos/45523282@N07

And plugged that photo ID into Scout ... and the most recently shown photo by that user in Scout is from February 5th.

Unfortunately I have no knowledge to contribute to the cause of the problem.

thanks -I have done the same for various photographers who have explore pictures today and yesterday & same result - I can see only the previous explore not the most recent one in Scout

snowy4052002:
Are you saying you can see the explored pictures from last couple of days in Scout? Even odder if some people can see them in Scout and some cant. Can you post examples of the ones from last couple of days that you can see in Scout. I had thought there was one yesterday I could see in Scout but then couldnt find it again. All the others I have looked at are absent from Scout.

Oh yes, I see, I read that wrong.

Maybe with all of the changes going on with Flickr the bot is not working as it should be and someone would need to contact John to have it checked out.

My internet went down and I was unable to edit my response above

I have sent a message to John about this.

John is FD--the Creator of the toys.

Your are so welcome.

I was just double checking over at explore and all seems to be working fine.

It just took a minute for him to get back with me = )
