It is bizarre what this move is doing in the HF threads. I see one thread (so far) where the same person shows a broken icon, a completely missing icon, and a normal icon, all at the same time. The broken icon still allows access to their drop down menu, the completely missing icon does not.

I'm still wondering if, at some point in time, a compete shutdown of the site will occur for a number of hours as it did the last time they moved to new servers.

My own icon is missing when I make a comment and around 10% of the people commenting on my pictures as seen on my Emails are missing.

What is strange is my icon is present next to the comment box when making a comment, but missing against the comment I just made.

So far I have no problem with my buddy icon but with several group icons of groups I manage. And it's not a resolution problem.
And some icons are always visible on PC but are missing in the Android app.
One of my contacts has her buddy icon missing when she views it but whenever I look, her icon is always there. We were chatting in a private admin group, and she did not see her own icon, but I saw it.

Flickr is obviously shoveling their files between Yahoo and AWS and a lot of things are being dropped in transition. Hopefully, somebody is monitoring these and things will be restored in a bit. I can see some of the icons missing yesterday display properly today.

My large icon on the top left of my photostream is fine.

The small icon at the top right on the black stripe is broken and my icon is not being displayed on any comments I make to other photos.... nor on this help forum thread. What do I (or you) have to do to get things working again?

Come on Flickr, it surely can't take this long to solve problems. Then again since May 2013 we have had many problems and lost facilities so .......

Hence, from my point of view, the problem is not solved and the bug is not fixed yet. Not at all.

My cover photo (behind the icon) has been missing since yesterday. My icon is still present. While the cover photo is missing on Google Chrome, it is still in place with Firefox and Microsoft Edge. I hope the Chrome related glitch can be fixed; it would be tough to find the exact same photo used in the cover photo.
