[FIXED] Camera Roll not working, Photostream not Showing-Up

MLP PhotoBlog says:

Camera Roll not working,
Photostream not Showing-Up
Flickr´s CEO telling us about all the "hard" work they are doing... Blah Blah Blah

And after 12 years being in flickr and more than 20.000 photos uploaded - and unfortunately linked to my blog - I understand that I really have to find out a solution - alternative and leave this mess-of-bad-bad-panda-not-loading-correctly-etc-etc-flickr cause I don´t give a damn about the login progress... I can stand the actual login via yahoo procedure, what I cannot stand is being taken as an idiot and paying for it...

Yes, same here. White gaps all over in my photostream.
If you click where a photo should be, the photo is showing up but like a thumbnail quality.

Furthermore the uploaded videos before the actually video downtime are still not working and according to the latest update about this, they should by now?

Come on Flickr, you`ve taken our money, at least provide a service.
When it was free, I hardly had any problems, but since it`s now a paid picture sharing service, it`s steadily getting worse.....Come back Fotopic, in all the years I used them, never had a single issue.

I have to agree with the other posts. I have enjoyed Flickr but paying for the upkeep of Bad Pandas is not what I signed up for.Let them find some other bamboo without using my green . It does get very frustrating but will continue with the site because of my flickr friends.

Again: You do NOT have to pay to have a Flickr account, there are and there have always been a Free version and a Paid version.

The current issues have NOTHING to do with free or paid, they have to do with the move from the Yahoo servers to the Amazon Web Services. There is a great deal of information about that transition in a number of threads in the Hot TOpic section on here.

This app stinks! Typical. They “force” you into paying for a premium service then, when they get your credit card info, the service instantly goes to crap. No fix and NO financial restitution for the inconvenience. I used to promote flickr on my show. Im about to do the opposite and cancel the service.
