Why can’t i log into Flickr?

Author: admin1  //  Category: massage blog

I log in and it doesn’t actually log in. It just comes up with ‘Flickr is having a massage, check our online blog!’

Why can’t i log in?
No seriously, It did actually say ‘massage’

I’ve just logged on to confirm that. It does say it.

There’s been a problem with the servers on Flickr and they needed to be taken off line to be fixed.

I’m sorry if you felt that the "Flickr is having a massage" message was patronising – it’s simply part of the Flickr approach. Most users feel it’s a good approach, and better than leaving a blank page or an error code which few understand.

The site is back up, there may be some problems with database lag for a few more hours (it needs to be propagated over seven main servers) but it should be usable by now.

I’m sorry for the problems, hopefully you haven’t been too inconvenienced.
