Flickr Users Photos Disappearing From Flickr
Well I just got an unpleasant surprise about 20 minutes ago when I tried to log into DMU on Flickr. I couldn’t get in. Even though I’m an admin of the group I’m locked out.
Far worse though is the fact that all of my Flickr photos and all of my Flickr mail seems to have disappeared. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that I merged over to a Yahoo ID yesterday?
At first I thought maybe my Flickr account had been hacked but then I noticed that it seems to be happening to a lot of other people on Flickr as well.
I hope my photos are not permanently lost on Flickr and I hope that they can get them back. This is not good at all.
Update: Flickr staff is now aware of the situation. It’s affected a lot of people. Rev Dan Catt over at Flickr says that they are looking at it right now. Here’s the updated help link if you want to follow along.
Some people on Twitter have said that they can still see my photos online.
Update #2: My photos appear to be back online. Whew!
