Please look through recent threads before starting yet another on exactly the same problems.

Also, see the Hot Topics (sticky threads) at the top of the main Help Forum page, in particular this very new one regarding the current stability problems and how they are tied to the server changes currently being implemented:

Ellie May. (Off more than on) says:

I have the same problem and its been going on for about 3 weeks now, not a good sign that anything is being done to correct this.

As for not starting new threads, I can never find what help I need/relevant threads when visiting the Help Forum. Life is too short to be searching through millions of posts to find the one that relates to yet another needless problem.

Read this:

The problem should be solved. But there might still a corrupted CSS-file cached somewhere. If it still doesn't work for You try hitting ctrl + shift + R or ctrl + F5.

I've been getting a few glitches with pages not loading fully recently though not too often because I've got an extension added to my browser that seems to have disabled cache loading for the most part and the pages still hang on loading sometimes or glitch out and fail to load all of the way.

Roy Mildor/Top Striker / RM Art Of Poses CEO says:

the performance of flickr is miserable since a time now. no matter what i do all takes too long time. if i want add pic to a group, if i want just open a photo, if i click on the activity button, all i see much time are the rolling balls.

I PAID for flickr but it all went much much more crappy. and there are still issues with 10 min video uploads ?

ahhh well i should ask for a partly refund of my fee i paid, this really annoy me.

I am so glad I refuse to pay to support this site. Ever since SmugMug bought it, performance of this site has been horrible.

Many time today I've had to reload pages to view them or to post comments. I tried post a reply to this thread and it just kept saying Yahoo! will be right back and it wouldn't load or post or anything and I had to open a new page.

this is one of the worse performing sites I visit on a daily basis. I can't believe people are paying for this

Johnathan V:

agreed! ever since SmugMug purchased Flickr...things went down the toilet. I don't think they even care about Flickr...and are only focusing on their own SmugMug platform. You should try Canon Irista for photo and video upload and storage. They dont have an active community, but they give you free 15GB, and the pro accounts have decent prices. They also have a great app for iOS and Android that syncs well.

It will be 5 years next month that I gave up on flickr, I removed all my photos and have only remained to administer my groups.

Group pool pages have been loading properly so far today.

I'm seeing the Panda more often than not on Flickr lately. What's going on? We now pay more money for a yearly Pro account with worse service than previously.

When will this issue be fixed?

Almost 50% of the time I try to access either photos, my favorites or galleries, I'm seeing the FREAKIN' PANDA ! !

Half the galleries I've created are not displaying the photos even when I can see that there are a specific of photos in the galleries.

When is this slow response time going to be fixed? This is *NOT* what we are paying for.

♥ Second Life says:

Flickr loads my page but not photos. Click on Follower's list and it's not loading any of their photos, either.

Not receiving any time out warnings or error message - nothing. Just loads blank spaces where photos should be.

*Edit: yes, I've cleared cache. Hasn't fixed the problem.

The exact same thing has been happening to me all day rendering Flickr unusable for me.

I too cleared my browser cache and even logged out and logged back in. Having been out for several hours, I've come back to the exact same situation. I'm an admin of several large groups and am unable to see to the pending queues, let alone see my own photostream or my Contacts photostreams.

Ditto. It's taken more than four minutes to load a half dozen images to the first page of my photo stream. Spaces where photos should be are blank.

Cleared cache, tried chrome, opera and ms edge browsers. Also tried android on a 4G network, different from pc network and nothing still loads up the pics.

There been a fix yet? Been like this for at least 12 hours now.

EDIT: Have also reseted router and reseted pc number of times.

I'm having the same problem others are having, pages not fully loading. I have 9 images on my home page, the rest are 'ghost images'. My 'Photostream' is 6 fully loaded images, the rest are ghost images. I've tried several times this morning with the same results. The 'Help Forum' seems to be the only thing loading properly.
