Interesting.  is it working now?  Perhaps flickr has come issues but other railcam images are loading into flickr without issue.  just accessing Flickr is the problem for the moment.

Flickr seemed to have numerous problems in general, when I checked the status last night.

I went to bed at 0300, when I got up this morning, all the photos from the last 24 hours were
now showing, in a very jumbled order....I've just finished putting them in order.

I noticed the RailCams page had no images, and thought it was the same problem.

I assume all is OK in Flickr land now ? there have been no trains since this morning
to check it out !

Telstra problems means I have had no Internet today, from noon....
and it's not meant to be fixed until at least tomorrow (Wednesday)

so no normal webcam shots, until further notice.

But as a bonus I've uploaded a few shots from todays journey,
using a USB modem, and I've got shots on 9701 and 9751 from tonight.

Hopefully it will be back to normal on Wednesday ???

Seems like flickr email uploads stopped working this morning.

I have been manually updating the shots, during the day.

I noticed all the other webcams , have not updated in that time either,
so it must be clogged up at flickr's end !

Same issues on other cams here for Bunbury.  Flickr fault.

Still no email uploads........so no webcam images.

Plenty of complaints on the Flickr forum, so it's a worldwide problem.

As time permits I'm still uploading the Stawell webcam shots 'manually'.

I just got an email from flicker, that uploads by email has been discontinued
from 0600 this morning !

This is the method the webcams use to send in photos.

I'll do a bit of further study, but looks like the Stawell Webcam is no more from today !!

Just got back into Melbourne and find the same may have now happened via Bunbcam.  It looks like you need a pro account and continue uploading images at all if you have more than 1000 images in the account.  I have some work to do to look at this but we will code another system up which we have prepared which does not use flickr.

I need to confirm this but I believe this will be the problem.   How much is a pro account per annum?

Hello Brian

I have been on a PRO account since 2011, so I don't think that matters.

There are a few upset people on the flickr forums about the situation.

OK, here's what we are doing.  I have a coder writing some code to take the email uploads and send them to flickr and the DAMS system via the flickr API.  Once completed we can start sending images again via email addresses we will allocate to the the cams.
