Can't see any images (China June 7th 12.30pm) 中国-看不见图片

NowJustNic says:

All photos and buddy icons are little red crosses. Anyone else?

----------

Update from Flickr staff (10:00 PDT, June 7th) : It seems that access to our image servers is being blocked for users in much of China. Our technical staff has looked into this at depth and determined this is not a technical issue from our end. We will keep an eye on the situation and update if we get any developments.

Update from Flickr staff [2] (01:00 PDT, June 8th) : We are checking periodically to see if the block is still in place, but haven't detected any change. We hope that this is a temporary issue and we currently believe that it will be. In the meantime, we are investigating our alternatives. Thank's for your patience.

Update from Flickr staff [3](11 June 23:30 PDT): We know images from Flickr are still blocked and definitely care very much about our friends who cannot access pictures. We have been contacting people to hopefully get a positive resolution with restoration of photos, but this of course has not happened yet. The Flickr team is very sorry for this continued issue and will update you when we have more to share.

Sounds like the Chinese Firewall is blocking access to our image farms, which seems to be confirmed by www.greatfirewallofchina.org

lifeimage or jwsun - if you open Terminal.app and run "traceroute farm1.static.flickr.com" what do you get?

Steve Webel says:

This happened earlier this year and it was a flickr problem, not a Chinese "firewall" problem.

I'm pretty sure China's not one big system, but rather it's controlled by each ISP, which means it's unlikely they would all kick in at the same time - which seems to be what has happened today with flickr.

Hey guys.

Everything you've posted so far suggests that something's pretty effectively blocking any attempt to access any URLs with hostname farm1.static.flickr.com and farm2.static.flickr.com

These are where all our images (including buddy icons) live.

Since many of you can see the images using other aliases for those machines, it doesn't appear that we have any network/server issues which would explain this.

So far I can't see anything to disprove my original theory that those URLs are being blocked for users in China. :(

We'll have more ops and support staff around in the morning, and look into this further (it's nearly midnight here in California).

@1980Nic

It's just an automatic device which operates against a list of words. I think that is why the Christmas day earthquake was so disastrous here - everything internet has to filter through a single firewall point. When the backbone was lost, it was unablem to reconfigure round, so there was a logjam there. Still not quite right yet, as everything's a lot slower than it used to be.

NB just my interpretation. Not likely to read about it in China Daily, and Taiwan Times is blocked too.

It's just an hypothesis, but, to answer your question if Flickr.com was to be blocked it would not block the images as they are hosted on farm1.flickr.com. An image is worth a thousand words especially when the words are in a different language and images can be linked to Blogs...but, we'll see.

啊 没关系 我看得懂..就是恍惚间觉得 全世界都讲英文..中国也讲英文了..好没有特色耶..
对不起啊..各位在中国的不管哪国人..我是学中文的..我有义务捍卫母语耶...嘿嘿...
我觉得 在一个别的国家讲这个国家的母语 是体现对这个国家最大的友好和尊重..我在国外的时候就是这样做的..不管是难懂的阿拉伯语还是德语法语英语...

图片被封锁的原因可能是前几天有人上传了关于64事件或厦门px事件的图片。
如果真是GFW的封锁,无法正常使用服务的flickr pro用户和受到影响的flickr应有权利起诉并要求赔偿。

1980Nic: Why would not? I just don't know why the Gov just block all the pics but not Flickr itself. Maybe just like calon said, they just want the pics concerning something they don't want us to know. If it's just a tech problems, I can't understand 'cos it's beyond my knowledge.
GFW就像龙与地下城里的AO大神。你可以祈求,他不会回应。你永远无法理解他。

OT: I doubt flickr staff read Chinese, so to be productive, it's best to keep this in English. (illusion.den - I know you wish to "protect the mother-tounge" but trust me, it will be safe - even if we use English here!)

Interesting that the image farm would be blocked and not the entire site. Makes me think that some blog or group of blogs got blocked and the flickr image farms got caught up in the sweep. Hopefully this is an error and Yahoo China can smoothing things over and get us back online in China!

I want to hit my head hard... I can't even see the Flickr itself after refreshing the page from time to time. Tech problems? I hope it's not a prelude.

Yahoo! China has nothing to do with Flickr or Yahoo! US... it's totally another company.
OK if it has something positive, I hope Yahoo! US could rethink the decision that they will close Yahoo! album this fall.

One of the best(maybe only) way now is using SSLed HTTP(Tor...)

Not "totally another company"

"Yahoo China, operated by Alibaba.com which is 40 percent owned by Yahoo"

It's just like a first warning to flickr, blocking images and allowing text. I guess Flickr have to make a compromise with China gov before block removed. Deleting all images about anti-gov maybe the first thing Flickr have to do no matter what is the truth or not.

@Steve Webel

Here is one Blog hkdigit.blogspot.com/2007/06/18th-anniversary-of-tiananme...
It is owned by Google and Google China cooperates with the Chinese Government. The Blog will probably be linked with other Blogs and the images in it are hosted on Flickr. Jonmperry has already confirmed he cannot see images on that blog. Albertuscan has confirmed that by using tor he can get around the Great Firewall of China and see all images on Flickr.

@Albretuscan

Your question has already been answered here
www.flickr.com/help/forum/41998/#reply222659
As far as what they may not want you to know about it is a major incident that happened 18 years ago in Beijing which is so taboo that only the older generation really know about it.

OK I don't use the proper words... I do think that Y! China don't want to get into trouble if it's really has sth to do with Great XXwall... and they may know it already.
I can't reload this page from time to time... I hope it's just my problem because of poor speed... I hope.

I am Guangzhou, can't see any pic. or images too from today's morning.... :-(

What happens?! pls recover it, ok?

我从今天早上9点钟开始, 一直都看不到任何图片啦....

And for me, there is one more question, a few days ago, when I opened Flickr, there is a pop-up window continuously showed up even I press the "confirm" button, it said "Run Time Error, Line: 52, Error: "F.output.date_strs" is blank or is not object"
How can I solve this problem?
