My Group Disappeared

Jim Frazier says:

I admin "Still Lifes - Curated" and it has disappeared. I was working on it about an hour ago, went and did some other things, and now it's gone. Gone from my lists, gone from pictures I've put into the group, and I can't invite pictures to the group.

I'll assume it's a glitch, but please advise.

[update] I checked with someone who has a picture in the group and he can see it. So I'm hopeful that the group is still there...it's just not visible to me.

This group www.flickr.com/groups/still-lifes/members/ has that exact title, but you are not the admin, nor even a member of the group.

And you are in this group www.flickr.com/groups/stillphotography/members/ but not as admin.

Edit: It looks as if the first group I mention was indeed your group, but you are gone from it. These photos are still there.

He is still there as admin? Even when you reload the page?

It is the same group; no two versions. My link shows the members.

Viejito:

You’re right, his Admin tag has vanished, although clearly he has been in the chair (updated the Overview etc…)
Flickr weirdness par excellence….

This group:

www.flickr.com/groups/still-lifes/members/

... shows a "Bobby Alcott" as Admin, under "Members" but on the overview page "Jim Frazier" is the author of the text in the blast box.

Seems to me staff intervention is needed:

Bobby Alcott was the original creator of the group and he promoted me early this year when I noticed the group was in zombie mode. He was kind enough to promote me. Luckily he still remembered how to log into Flickr. I've reached out to him again, but I'm not holding out much hope.

Hopefully, Flickr can fix this.

Thanks for your support.

Luckily, I posted an admin blast yesterday. So that will be proof to Flickr that I WAS the admin. ;-)

Any 10-20 of recently active contributors can also vouch for ya! Flickr can email me (hopefully the others) if necessary..

Jim Frazier:

Out of curiosity, are you working from a phone, or from the web page?

I'm asking because I'm wondering whether there's any possibility that you actually un-joined the group by mistake. I have never really used the mobile UI so I don't know whether this would be an easy thing to do.

Jim Frazier says:

I'm using the web page. And if you "unjoin" a group, there's a message that comes up asking about deleting any pictures you've put in the group.

I thought that I might have accidentally unjoined, but that warning message would have stopped me.

So it must have been a glitch.

Suppose you rejoin and Bobby Alcott re-promotes you to admin?

MabelAmber️***Pluto5339***MysteryGuest:

See the message above starting with "bobby alcott". I've contacted him, but since he's not on Flickr anymore, he may not be able to help.

And I've filed the support request.

Now....we wait.

Ah yes, there's the catch.

Perhaps he might still reach out to you. And if not I daresay staff can fix this for you.

Apparently it helps being a pro member. And I linked to this discussion so they saw all of your support.

That's good!

(Indeed, I can see your buddy icon under the "Admin" label on the "Members" page.)
