[Investigating] How can my Inbox be empty when I have 2,895 messages?

How can my Inbox Be Empty When I Have 2,895 Messages In It?

How can my inbox be empty when I have 2,895 messages in my In box?

And how come I have to refresh my inbox over and over again just to be able to see my messages?

Does it matter?
Were you going to read those 2,895 new messages or those 62,449 new contact notifications?...

And how come I have to refresh my inbox over and over again
That happens to me, refreshing often to no avail, when searching.

Well when 70% of the time you have to refresh your inbox in order to see messages, yes it seems like a waste of time and matters. I'd rather it just show my messages when I refresh it. I don't know why it is hard to just show me my messages rather than send me a screen that my inbox is empty when it is not. It would seem to me that Flickr should be able to make this work better than it currently works.

yeah maybe. Maybe I could make some adjustments on my end and it would just magically fix itself.

It's something they call a glitch or even a bug:

The "inbox empty" message has popped up a few times for me recently. But it self corrects in a blink, a second or two, so it hasn't got me worried just yet.
