New Flickr accounts and my photos page

By Maangchi

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. :)

To add a photo to the page, you can send it to me, or join my Flickr group and add your photo to the group. It will automatically appear on that page.

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.
