Faves

Captain Bark (read my profile) says:

I get notification that someone has faved some of my images.
If I open one of the images there is marking that user xxx has faved this.
But if I go the users fav page there is not any of my images.
Why?

You may have to scroll through numerous pages of user xxx’s faves. Some users are really into mass-faving, often using a script (bot).

... and after you have gone trough six or seven pages of their faves, you may not even notice your own image on the page that it is on.

That's not the case this time.
One user faved 12 my pictures yesterday. None of them are on his fav page.

Same happens whit several other users also.

They may have un-faved. Some people fave-and-unfave photos just to draw attention to themselves.

If it says that, the images are on one of the user’s fave pages.
None of them are on his fav page.
Did you check their 400,000 faves?

No. Because one of these accounts have only 700 faves. :)


This in odd:
When I look those faves with Apple App I can not see any of my photos.
But with computer/Chrome I see them.

One reason that could happen is if the images are private, and the Apple app is not signed into your account (the exact same account), but computer/Chrome is signed in.

I also assumed you were referring to "Dave". That account has over 400,000 faves, and when I looked through them last night, I didn't see your images on the first 20 pages of faves. Admittedly, I scanned through kinda fast after the first 8 pages.

Using the browser's own text-search (per page) helps ensure you don't miss this sort of thing. At least in Chrome, it will find text such as users' names on the photos on a page like that, even when they are invisible.

This is clear and simple case:

www.flickr.com/photos/8028818@N05/favorites
My IMG_4427 is on the fornt page.

But with Apple App I'm not able to see it.
Logged in as same user. Receiving the notification that "sneno75" has faved my photo.

Same thing with "Varbor"

no; I've noticed this flaky behavior with faves from time to time over the past 6 months.

I'm not sure if this is related or not, but I noticed that in the past you were trying to remove your faves from a lot of photostreams by blocking them:
www.flickr.com/help/forum/72157712272309231

I also came across several posts from people who had blocked people, the faves were removed from the blocked account, but the blocked names still showed on the photo page. There is one account of that here, but I've seen other posts in the Help Forum reporting the same situation:
www.flickr.com/help/forum/72157719671120840

Edit: both images IMG_4427 and IMG_4890 were uploaded just over a year ago, and I thought that's when the faves occurred, but I just noticed that you mentioned images that were faved yesterday, so my explanation is less likely to have anything to do with it. Sorry.
