    use the embed bbc link.

    if you're copying and pasting from flickr to here, or you're uploading a new file to this server -- this server fails anything larger than 1024px wide.


    seems like they've fixed my issue and im no longer having issues...

    *notices all a ruckass about flicker and realises - he's not uploaded any photos in so long he's not realised there's any problems!*
    Hoping that updating your apps/firmwire/phone OS helps fix this. I agree that having two accounts shouldn't cause any issues as you'd only be logged into one at a time; though I can appreciate that out of date software could be an issue esp if you're using mobile systems and apps to upload stuff.


    Yeah then their sales and company started to fall apart and they hired a new CEO who backtracked on a lot of that ;) Esp since their paid options were so high you could pay to host dozens of websites for the same cost as they were charging back then. Though ie likely had a desired effect in pushing off all but their most staunch customers

    Flickr is back up now, but not 100% as they still have work to do.

    to be fair most massive data moves often take longer than estimated and can have gremlins in the system for a bit. I've seen games move sites and things like MMO start up again on new servers and there is always teething trouble for around a week after the change. You simply can't test everything until you hit it with the community. Though the biggest worry is if something in the data storage gets corrupted during the transfer, or has been corrupted for ages but not noticed and it only appears as an issue when you try to start it all up again and the backups are all the same corrupted data.

    It’s bad enough moving data at home or in a sm business, as Overread says you can’t prevent all problems.
    I dread changing computers because of the hassle, I am currently on win 7 and staring there simple reason is if I change up most of my current software will be naff... I was going to say u/s as in unserviceable but I understand that some people in USA and other countries get upset with that particular abbreviation
