***Update: After a few emails with Flickr they finally got this problem solved and they deleted the new account I didn't want. I added my photos onto Flickr and it worked. I'm very pleased with the customer service I received from Flickr. Thank you Flickr for solving this issue. Thank you my followers for letting me vent my frustration, lol!!!
I am so frustrated with using Flickr that I needed to blog about it and see if anyone else is having these same problems. I have a Flickr account and have used my Google email to log in. But the last time I logged in I was told I needed a Yahoo account in order to access my Flickr photos. Okay so I created a Yahoo account. I wanted to upload my new bag onto my Flickr album and then upload those photos to the photo stream for the Bag of the Month Club where all of us who are making bags are sharing our photos. I logged onto Flickr got to my photos and clicked upload and uploaded my 3 photos. Instead of uploading them to my Flickr account that I have had for 2 years, it loads them to a new account. So my old Flickr has 706 photos and my new one has these 3 photos. I try again and the same thing happens. I didn't ask for this new Flickr account, but because I was forced to create a Yahoo account in order to access the Flickr account I already have, I got this account and my old one.
I contacted Flickr explaining this and they only seemed to think I had a problem with logging in. They sent me info to delete the "dangling" account. I followed their instructions and even changed my password to a new password. After all of that my new password would NOT work, but the old one still did. The account I wanted to delete with the 3 photos is still there and my old Flickr account with the 706 photos that I had is gone!!!! I emailed them again and explained this and my frustration. I don't know if they will fix this mess or not. If they cannot retrieve my 706 photos that I had on there I will be deleting my Yahoo accounts and Flickr too!!! I'd rather use Shutterfly or Photobucket because they don't require you to have a certain email account.
I am only so glad that I do not use Flickr for posting my blog photos like some people do or everything I had worked so hard for all these years would have been gone. I am in tears over this frustration with Yahoo and Flickr. Has anyone else had a similar experience with Flickr? I cannot post my photos now on the Flickr groups out there like the Bag of the Month Club because of this. I wonder if those photos that I had posted with that group have vanished now too. The Bag of the Month bags were going to be judged and prizes could be won, but if my photos cannot be posted now, then I not only won't be even able to participate, but others cannot see the bags that I made unless they follow my blog here.
