Albums chaos. The 'organise' feature not working. Strange 'bot' activity

The Canon says:

My albums have gone haywire. Individual photos are appearing as albums, whose title is one of the original tags.
I can’t use the 'organise' feature for my latest posts.
A 'bot' has redefined a 2015 photograph as 'restricted' for no apparent reason.
What’s going on?

I don't know about the Organizr problems. Have you tried any (all) of the usual browser- and system-related troubleshooting steps? There are some tips here:

Regarding the restricted photo, the reason may not be "apparent", but it exists. The bot is a bot. It uses AI, and is imperfect. For example, something with just the right kinds of curvy shapes in it might get interpreted as a naked body part. If it's really just an obvious mistake, you are perfectly OK to simply change it back to "safe" yourself.

Flickr appreciates feedback on these false positives so they can improve performance of the bot. www.flickrhelp.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

I have received the following The Flickr Moderation Bot 🤖 changed your photo to Restricted. The photo is of sculpture inside an artists studio, no surely no restriction necessary, surprised as this has never happened before.

Naughty bits crafted by an artist aren't necessarily exempt from the moderation rules.
