Flickr Is Flickering Out

Is anyone else having a problem with Flickr? And if so, any ideas on how to resolve it?

For more than two weeks now, I have had a problem. The picture titles are in place, but no pictures are in sight. This is the case when I try to upload my photos and also when I try to view other people's photos. Two or three may show up, here and there, but most do not. I'm missing 24 of my own at the moment. - some I tried to upload, and some older ones that were there until a couple of weeks ago have now disappeared.

I emailed to Flickr of course, and got an acknowledgment, but have heard nothing more, and I'm getting impatient. My daughter in California just let me know that she is uploading a lot more, but I can't see them. I hope she'll email me at least a few or put some on her blog.

I really don't care for most of the other systems that create albums for you. Up until now I have enjoyed Flickr very much. But this is ridiculous. I've given up trying to upload any more pictures for the time being, but I would really like to be able to see my family's and friends' photos.

Interestingly enough, I'm told that other people CAN see the photos I've put on the site. I'm the only one who cannot see them.

Hi Bobbie, No problems here with Flicker but my sidebar in my blog keeps dropping my followers and sometimes the whole thing is gone!
Hope you get it worked out and get to see your photos.

I hope you get it worked out. I never used Flicker so I will not be able to help you. I certainly see all the photos you post.

Flickr is weird. I went to log in and was told that my account didnt exist ... after trying a few different things I discovered that I have TWO Flickr accounts .. one I created on Flickr and one that seems to have come with the Yahoo account I have for my online project/office calendar! AND it seems only to recognize the office related acct. ACK!

Bobbie..i have something you might want to try..it has worked for me if I am having problems seeing certain things on sites.
Try clearing your Cache on Internet Exlorer , Firefox or whatever browser you use..
