    Trying to get onto flickr - keep getting a message saying connection refused.

    Is anyone else getting this problem?

    No, me neither.

    But 2 days ago I had a hellava problem uploading a couple of pics. Had to try several times.

    Seems they've got some problems.

    I know - it's definitely losing its way. The only reason I have a pro account, is because I get it for free.

    They need to change something. Quickly.

    With 279 viewers of this thread, that was a genius bit of advertising. :smashin:

    I can't connect to Flickr either. It was up earlier today, at least at 10:a.m. PST. I keep getting the message "connection refused."

    It's free to BT Internet subscribers - So not really 'free'.

    Cheers for that Liquid.

    Why don't they just say what the problem is?

    Thanks! I went to the Flickr blog and they've posted messages that they're still working on the problem as of 2:45 PST.

    Aren't they owned by the brainiacs at Yahoo? The company which is currently circling around the toilet bowl...

    Yes they are.

    Yahoo is a disaster and deserves to get flushed.

    I do like flickr though - for all sorts of reasons. I hope it doesn't go down the tube with yahoo.

    I get it free with BT Broadband as well. BT are in bed with Yahoo for their email and other services, which is probably why BT BB customers get a free Flickr Pro accounts. God knows what will happen if Yahoo do go down the pan :rolleyes:
