    Hey @Amin Sabet@Amin Sabet did you make some changes recently? There seems to be quite a few Flickr links broken. I'll find some examples as soon as I can.

    I'm always making changes :).

    It looks like the URL for the image in that post is referencing a non-existent address:

    Code:

    Maybe its a Flickr issue. If you go backwards through the Random Picture Thread you will see multiple missing links.

    I see what you mean in other threads as well, though. Maybe there is an issue on Flickr's end? Because when I open the image URLs directly in the browser, I get an error.

    Looks like we posted at the same time. I think it's a Flickr thing.

    There is always the chance that the user removed or changed sharing settings on flickr. The odds of this go up as time goes by.

    There's a ton of broken images in recent posts. I see it on other sites as well (not just my sites either). Something is definitely going on with Flickr. Likely they will sort it soon.

    Yeah, I noticed broken links on some of my posts when I logged on today and checked my recent alerts. No user changes on my end, so it must be Flickr itself.
