Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

has anyone else been caught out by the new Yahoo ruling that its necessary to have a Yahoo account to use flikr or is it just me.

I tried to load some more images today but was blocked and had to create a Yahoo account, this then created a new flikr account and although I can see and access existing images I can't upload new ones to my old account

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

I had notification of the change but gave up on flick years ago when one of my nudes with nude in the title got more fars/comments/hits that the rest of my shots combined.

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

I had to set up a new Yahoo email account but it lets me access my existing pictures and upload new ones - I've just tried.

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

thanks John, that's what I had expected, lord knows what gone wrong, I've put in a help request so maybe I'll hear something back tomorrow, here's hoping anyway

I can access my existing ones but uploads go to another new flikr account that has been created for some reason

It was the same for me, I used to use a G mail account to login to Flickr then they said I needed a Yahoo account which I set up and still had access to the existing Flickr stuff.
Good luck with the help request.

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

thanks Ian, wasn't sure where else to post it and was getting totally frustrated going around in circles. and as flikr is my doorway for uploading here I thought maybe someone could help

Reading up on the Flikr users group it looks as if I am not the only one caught out by this, so I'm hoping the Flikr support team may have the answer

mods, if this should be elsewhere, please move - thanks

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

Good spot, Iain, I hadn't noticed! I've now moved this thread to The Lounge.

Brian, I hope they respond promptly and get this sorted out.

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

I just opened a new account and deleted the old one, no problem for me as I am not obsessed with the amount of views or comments my images get.

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

Paul, can you see how many views your images get, I hadn't spotted that, where does it show?

I use mine as a resource for keeping in touch with the many Thundercat and Zapcat crews that that I photograph + family and friends and didn't want to waste time either running two accounts or having to back load several hundreds of images into a new account

On calmer reflection I think the reason was so annoyed was that I had seen no warning that I would have to make the change and objected to wasting my time trying to resolve the issue

Anyway, its another day and the sky is blue, the birds are singing - what could possibly go wrong

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

I don't care how many people view my images but obviously lots of people are simply there to look for pictures of naked women.

And now posting on 'social media' apparently means TV channels can lift and use your images for free as long as they credit you. Some of the recent storm coverage was lifted from flickr, facebook and youtube over here.

there seem to be a lot of unhappy users out there at the moment, it looks as if Yahoo have created a bit of a mess.

They still haven't got back to me with a solution, so now I'm invited to "follow" my original flikr galleries and can't access them except as a viewer

Brian it depend on which version of Flickr you are using (they keep changing the layout) on the latest it says views below the image, on the previous version it is a Eye icon on the right.


To be honest I still prefer my old fashioned PBase account which I have had since 2004, it's a bit like me no razmataz but is flexible and does the job . .

This image has had 2034 views

Re: Yahoo have blocked me from my flikr account

I got the warning, but had already created a Yahoo account as BT are leaving the Yahoo email server and had warned me some months ago that I'd need a Yahoo account after the change as Yahoo were making changes too.
