A popular section of my website is photos from readers who made food from my recipes. There are about 1,200 photos there, all of them awesome. :)
But some people joined the group, and added their photos, but they never showed up on my photos page. I could never figure it out, why it was happening. I double-checked every setting and double checked the code, everything was ok. I wrote to Flickr and they never answered me. But today I figured it out!
In the Flickr help, under “Why aren’t my photos appearing in searches or groups?” it says:
If your account is new, first you need to upload at least 5 public photos. After that minimum has been reached, then it shouldn’t take more than a few days until your photos appear in searches, groups, etc.
I checked, everyone who is having problems has a new Flickr account. Probably they started it so they could send me photos.
I apologize to all you guys, I didn’t know this rule until just now. I want to remind all of you that you need at least 5 photos on your flickr page to post to my group, and then it will take a few days for the photos to appear.
