[Monitoring Fix] Recent Activity Page - changed number of items displayed

cnmark says:

What happened to the recent activity page?

Suddenly it displays only 8 or 6 items, about an hour ago it still was 25 like always before.
Consequently the number of "activity" pages increased from about 40 before to over 150.

- I have not changed anything on my side.

This page:
www.flickr.com/activity
(not this new notification thingy that I have not gotten yet)

For me, it's always 10 items per page for All, Activity, and Replies. Custom view for me is the one that has more or less than 10 depending on the length of each individual message.

Perhaps you have changed your type of view (near the top of the page)?

Anyway I see no difference from the norm on that page.

The RA page is notoriously and historically fickle about this. I have had the same thing occur from time to time for at least 12 years. Sometimes while it's happening it will actually show 0 items on the first page and then random amounts on the subsequent ones. I've never been able to detect a pattern. Eventually (measured in days) it heals itself.

Thanks - so I'm not alone with activity page issues...

In the meanwhile mine is down to only 4 items on the first page and 8 on all subsequent pages...

My RA page flip flops from long to short and back again; sometimes a Refresh changes the length, sometimes not. Using Win10 and Edge.

[My bold]

Are you talking about the number of items against each image on the RA page? Because that number was brought down from, I blelieve 25, to only 10 with the coming of the new photo page quite some years ago, summer 2014.

No, about the number of photos/videos/etc. shown on the RA page.
That other change you mention I am aware of.

Ah okay, thanks for the clarification.

Well, as for me, walking through the pages, I can see the number of items on the RA pages is quite erratic, some show ten, some eight, now and then only 4 are displayed.

Hi, all. This change was part of some testing that we were doing and it should be reverted back shortly, once again displaying 25 items on the Recent Activity page. Please stay tuned for that update within the next 20 minutes or so and sorry for the unexpected change.

Right now my RA pages do show 16 items on page 1 and 2, 13 items on page 3 and 20 items on page 4. Did not count further, but the total numbers of pages is still high at 64, this means it is not back to 25.

Looks like that update/fix that should have been active some 12-13 hours ago (by the time stamp of your post) did not fully work out.

It would also have been nice to announce such testing somewhere, e.g as a sticky thread above.

I'll say again that I have known this behaviour of RA to be completely "normal" for (as previously noted) at least 12 years. And when I say "normal" I mean it has literally NEVER not been like this (different numbers of items per page, and constantly differing "different", at that).

Way back around that many years ago I had some exchanges with Flickr staff about it, and they could not explain or solve it and even once gifted me a free year of Pro "for my trouble".

But it never, ever was solved, and just became part of the way Flickr was (is).

Despite this "trouble" and despite the fact that I use the Notifications Center on purpose ever since it started (to get used to it), I still very much prefer RA.

Well, for me it's been 25/page constant for many years, that's why I started the thread...

Congrats. Hope they do that for everybody reporting in this thread ;-)

I still very much prefer RA

Slightly off topic: I did not yet get the new "Notifications Center".
But: If this "Notifications Center" turns out to be as slow loading as this so called "Feed" on the flickr home page, it will be same with me.
For checking out my contacts new uploads I still very much prefer the good old "People" page.

Current situation: (I am viewing activity for the last month)

Page 1 - 25
Page 2 - 25
Page 3 - 22
Page 4 - 24

Bottom of each page says (103 items)

There is no clickable page 5 at the bottom of any page

Next is not clickable at the bottom of page 4

I can force a page 5 by modifying the URL and reloading the new URL, when I do this I get 3 more entries on Page 5. Bottom of that page says I am on Page 1.

I can force a Page 6 by modifying the URL and reloading the new URL, when I do this I get ,"You don't have any activity yet, but if someone leaves you a comment or marks one of your photos as a favorite, we'll let you know about it here!" Bottom of that page says I am on Page 1.

mag3737 says:

Just for grins I counted the number of items on my first three RA pages. To my great amusement, the answer is a Pythagorean triple (though more conventionally I would write the biggest number last):

8 17 15

These numbers will be different when (I mean if) I check later anyway.

With the addition of a single new entry, mine has changed to {9 16 16}.

Dang it, now this is actually making me curious if there's a discernable pattern to what happens when the contents change. I've looked for patterns in the numbers themselves, but never at how they change in response to specific new content.
