[ACKNOWLEDGED] "You have no public photos"

Gabriel M.A. PRO says:

I have 4K+ photos in my stream, 99% of them public.

As of about half an hour ago, nothing comes up, even if you try the "View All" option. I'm sure people will ask, "are you sure you have any photos?" Yes, been uploading almost daily since early 2005. "Did you delete them?" or "are you sure they're public?" No, and Yes. "Are you sure?" Yes.

Obviously something going on at flickr: new developer having fun by injecting new code directly into Prod, intern pressing the wrong button ... ?

I can see my sets ("Albums"), for example:
www.flickr.com/photos/gabrielma/albums/72157594162314689

But nothing shows up at the "general" photostream page:
www.flickr.com/photos/gabrielma/

It's happening to everyone. Can't view your own stream, can't view others' streams.

Good thing this happened, I was starting to get worried that Flickr wasn't on schedule with breaking something today. Color me relieved...

Lú_ PRO says:

Detail in case it's useful (and findable) for staff, or reassuring for other users:

New uploads from other people show in the Home Page and You > People. Also, the iOS app "Public" stream view is fine. So it seems to be something on how those particular pages (Photostream, Search) are accessing the API.

nrg_crisis says:

Evidently, Flickr's software thinks none of my 800+ public photos are, in fact, public.

wtf Flickr 8Nov15


And none of my long-time contacts, each of whom has hundreds or thousands of publicly-viewable photos, has any publicly-viewable photos either according to Flickr.

And yes, all of my settings are appropriately set for public viewing by default for uploads. That has always been the case since I started my account 8 years ago.

Esther Spektor - Thanks for 12+millions views.. PRO says:

Again...? "You have no public photos" now...! Have you notice the pattern...? Each week something happens on Sunday - and "Oops...! we got it again...!" Isn't it embarrassing for Flickr bosses to take members money and give just problems in return...? Well - this is their way to do business...

Maybe the time has come for Flickr technical team to realize that not everyone is using smart phone, some people still prefer PC, especially serious photographers. So, create two versions of Flickr - one for Apps, second - for PC...!
