Public Photostream only shows recent uploads

pasa47 says:

I have 87k+ public photos, but my public profile shows just over 900 and my photostream only goes back to April of this year. What's going on here? This has been an issue for months (since mid-April if I recall correctly).

I see 879 pages in your photostream, which matches the 87,873 public photos your profile says. Your oldest photo was uploaded on 3 March 2006: www.flickr.com/photos/pasa/107119373/in/dateposted/

I have "Safe search" set to "On" and, when I go to your photostream, the header says that you have 904 photos, and the last photo in your stream is www.flickr.com/photos/pasa/49795373027/in/dateposted/, "Pair of Pidgeons", uploaded on 19 April 2020. However, if I got to that photo's page, the context strip under the photo enables me to scroll through many earlier photos and I can open, for example, www.flickr.com/photos/pasa/49775391646/in/photostream/, "Police line", uploaded 7 April 2020. If I then click "Back to photostream" I get taken to the start of your stream, not to the context of "Police line". This is a problem that has occurred before, I believe, and I think that, if you contact staff via help.flickr.com/contact (assuming a staff member doesn't respond in this thread), it should be possible to fix the problem for your photostream, although it looks as if a global fix has yet to be found!

If I change my "Safe search" setting to "Off" and go to your photostream, I get 87,873 photos over 879 pages, as described by ernstkers and mcnod. So the manifestation of the bug seems to depend on my "Safe search" setting; it may be that theirs is different from my normal setting of "On", which may explain why we are seeing different things.
