[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Notifications - not showing older than 2hrs

Loverdag - unedited - says:

As the title says
gyazo.com/563ca52b635194ede1330fb255b83379

Page refresh didnt change much - after that it showed more, 8 hrs back, but again no button "Load more".

After several page refreshes I got the button finally.

But ... notification are slowly loading and uncomfortable to use because of that even if they work properly, now we have to even do this to make them work?

I really hope you can fix it.

Hi all,
Thanks for flagging this issue with your notifications not displaying and the option to load more is not available.

Our engineers have been alerted. I will be reaching out directly to gather more information and will follow up in this thread with any updates.

I think there is much more missing than just the Load more button gyazo.com/91e404d062660e07775991628c35908d
Notifications show very little info about what happened during last 3 hours.

But lets have a look on actual activity shown in Recent Activity - there was active traffic not mentioned in the Notifications at all - is that supposed to work this way, to show now and then some random notification and to skip everything in between for hours?

My notifications got stuck at 1 hour ago. I received some faves and comments within that timeframe. Bu, notifications do not show these.

as far as I can see, for me, the new notifications is consistently showing the whole time range now with a "load more" button that works takes me further back.

I do remember instances up to maybe a week or so so ago when (like your screenshot) it was just showing very recent notifications but i think this normally was fixed by refreshing.

I wonder is it mabe intermittent and improving - and has improved faster for some users than for others?

My account suffers with two issues ongoing together. One is the "Load more" button missing, other and the worse issue is about not getting notifications at all: www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157720151475339/#reply7...
