Their last Information Update was at 16:04 PST (that's 4:04pm for you civilians) stating that internal testing was complete, and that they were rolling out service to members a little at a time, and watching for hiccups.


Doesn't sound like they have a lot of faith in the IT department.

Not anymore, anyway. They were brimming with confidence yesterday.

They advised some extended downtime a week or more ago. The "low rent graphic" is a print friendly page members can print out for a photo competition of images including the page, prize for which is a few free memberships a day I believe. The site has had its issues in recent times but the "panda" graphic in itself says nothing about the site integrity or lack thereof.

Haven't tried the Uploader yet, but everything else is working with more speed now. I'll try to post something in the morning.

They switched from Yahoo servers to Amazon Web Services infrastructure.

I think that their migration IT team did a splendid job. Except for the downtime the end user would never notice that anything changed (they had to move a LOT of data). User experience is pretty much the same as before.

Shi**y! With pandas everywhere...

A few hours ago the uploader was broken, and now when I try to log in I get:
502 Bad Gateway

- which is at least different from Bad Panda

I get this message, not very encouraging: "We just finished re-engineering Flickr’s underlying infrastructure. You may come across a few parts of the site that aren’t working perfectly."

I suppose they are doing the conversion regionally. In Vietnam, Flickr came back online some 5 hours ago. The only two items not working -with an explanation from Flickr, are 'stats' and 'camera roll'.

^ right!


Here in Austria / Europe, after having been down about 23 hours, it started working some 7 or 8 hours ago.
I uploaded one photo, it was possible to edit it and stats are displayed but "camera roll" is down.
This one photo that I uploaded seems not to get views yet. Makes me wonder if it is visible for anyone or not ( a yellow flower meadow )

Dein Deutsch ist sehr gut, wusste ich gar nicht!

Means that the photo I uploaded after the maintenance is viewable, but the view-counter of it seems not to work. Well, imo stats never have been working correctly..

They`ve just tweeted that they are aware of the log in issues and are working hard to resolve the problem.

Here in the UK I can now log in (albeit slowly), but have lost everyone I followed.

Just get a message saying it appears that I don't follow anyone - guess that makes me a trendsetter then

Funny, I received the same message. I'm a trendsetter too, I guess.

On the East Coast of the USA at 11:40 EDT (7:40 UTC) it is glacially slow, but working. Have not tried an upload yet. Hard to see how this is an improvement, at least not yet.

Yes. For example, the phone app isn't working yet so I can't fave any pics from it.

The solution is (probably) to wait a few weeks before posting if you want your stuff to be seen on Flickr. I'm not planning on posting anything for a while because of this.

Went to the Help Forum to see what the status was on the Uploader repairs, and got a "502 Bad Gateway" error instead. Looks like they kept the same IT team that worked for Yahoo, and couldn't stand to hear from the Customers.

most IT people ignore the people waiting for the fixes to be done until they are done...

They seem to do their customer interface on Twitter and seem very open and helpful from what I`ve read.
This is their latest tweet.

"The site is back up. You will likely experience degraded performance while we continue to work to stabilize our systems. Please note that mobile apps are still unavailable. Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned to our status page for updates: http://status.flickr.net "

Update: same location as above at 14:25 EDT (10:25 UTC) uploading worked. The geotagging feature was very slow to load and balky, but worked on the third try. The whole site is still very slow, and you often need to try to do something multiple times before it works.

It's not quite 56k modem days, but it brought back some of those memories. How spoiled we have all gotten.
