[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Albums not always showing in uploader

rockwolf says:

It's sporadic, but I don't always have all albums available to add a photo to when uploading. Even if I then upload the photo anyway, and try to add it to albums afterwards, they still don't always show up in the list. Obviously, I can do it later, but I'd probably forget... please fix!

Thanks!

Melanie, the staff knows about this. I complained about this in June or July. They asked me a ton of questions, and so far there has been no change

This bug was first reported back in 2018:

www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157695873880652/

In that thread a fellow member linked to 2 other threads reporting this issue, earlier in '18.

(I believe it's the same bug, judging by the description.)

I too have had this problem a few times recently. It is sporadic, and it is different albums which seem to be 'missing' each time.

Thanks for all the reports & I can imagine how frustrating this must be to run into.

Our engineers have been digging into the issue here & are requesting some additional details for troubleshooting purposes.

The following will be helpful in finding reproducible examples to pass along:

1. Is this issue consistent or sporadic?
2. Does it happen with multiple albums, or just one?
3. Most importantly, please provide the name of an album where you've noticed this issue occur.

Thanks in advance!
