Anybody else having upload issues? Flickr/Yahoo seems to have issues with it's CDN provider DNS pathways causing a SSL failure upon upload according to my logs, the only way I can get my images to upload is to spam retry up to 50 times. Contacting support is useless as they don't read my emails and then proceed to ask for the same information again. Staff on the official help forum are useless and maintain they can't reproduce the problem despite having hundreds of complaints from the UK. parts of the USA, Australia ect over the last month!

Not much help for you but I uploaded about 4 pics about 10 days ago and didn't have any problems.

Can I ask what ISP are you with? I'm with Plusnet, a lot of the complaints have come from BT customers.

I've confirmed it's a DNS issue, switching to Google's DNS appears to fix it for me. I've sent Flickr my test logs.

We’re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

We think you are going to love Flickr under SmugMug ownership, but you can choose to not have your Flickr account and data transferred to SmugMug until May 25, 2018. If you want to keep your Flickr account and data from being transferred, you must go to your Flickr account to download the photos and videos you want to keep, then delete your account from your Account Settings by May 25, 2018.

If you do not delete your account by May 25, 2018, your Flickr account and data will transfer to SmugMug and will be governed by SmugMug’s Terms and Privacy Policy.

Read more detailed FAQs about this transition on the Flickr Blog.

We’re happy that Flickr is your home for photography and we look forward to the next chapter in our adventure together as we join the SmugMug family.

Thanks,
The Flickr Team

So everything's moving over? Flickr is going?

Will Flickr continue to offer a free version? Will Flickr’s price change?

Absolutely. Flickr’s free accounts are foundational to its community of influential and engaged photographers. We are not making any changes to Flickr plans or rates at this time. We’ll let Flickr Pro customers know if that changes.
also
Will anything happen to my photos? Will they be moved?

No, you’ll still be able to access your photos as you do currently and they’ll retain the same Flickr or SmugMug URL as always. Over time, we’ll be migrating Flickr onto SmugMug’s technology infrastructure, and your Flickr photos will move as a part of this migration—but the photos themselves will remain on Flickr.

Smugmug now cutting back on free Flickr accounts.

I have 888 photos, so good for another two years of PAD.
