[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Adding to Showcase Problem

xhello my name isx says:

I've tried adding a photo to my showcase many times and it only pushes the page up and down, without adding it.
I did troubleshooting by logging out and logging back in, trying to add but same page behavior.
Is this a known problem?
Windows 10, up to date, Chrome.
Edit: I wanted to inform you that I do have a photo in showcase, but this was added before the problem today.

xhello my name isx says:

I've just gone back to my about, and I now see the2nd photo I had tried to add.
Glad it's working finally. I've been having loading issues on this website for quite some time.

xhello my name isx says:

I've added another photo just now, and it's repeating the same behavior; not adding the photo and the page moves up and down.
Why is it doing this?

Artist & Dreamer:

I do have a photo in showcase
I see three photos in your showcase.
Did you try re-loading the page after you added the photo?

Viejito:

I didn't the 2nd time since it repeated the same behavior the first time.
It used to be, I click a photo, click the select button, and it adds it instantly.
Now I have this problem where it doesn't show up and I have to wait awhile for it to appear on the next time I load the about page.
That is why I mentioned it here, to let flickr know and hoping maybe I'm not the only one experiencing it.

Artist & Dreamer:

Hi there,

I was able to reproduce a significant lag for the photos to appear in my showcase section.

I went ahead and created a report with our engineers.

We will keep this thread updated with any relevant information.

Thanks!

Having a similar issue here tonight. Showcase won’t accept updates (additions or deletions) unless I log out, clear history etc. I’m on iOS Safari (iPad, dot com site not the App).
Got there eventually but very laggy…

I've had a similar problem a couple of times in the last few weeks, I add an image to the showcase, try a number of times, and the images don't appear, but coming back after maybe 12hrs they're there.

To staff: I wonder if it’s because I (like others) have changed the title “Showcase” to something of my choosing?

Two people in this thread have changed their showcase name, the OP and one other have not . . . so that's not it.

Staff: sorry to resurrect this acknowledged item again but here’s a new twist. I added a photo to showcase, it didn’t appear. OK, no worries, just be patient. However if I logged out of Flickr, cleared history and then viewed my public page it was there. When I logged back in it disappeared again.
It’s ok now (later) but very weird wouldn’t you agree?

I'm having similar issues with Showcase. I try to add photos (for the first time) and nothing happens. There's been no follow up from the [Acknowledged] "staff" post from two months ago. Just another Flickr feature that I won't be using I guess.
