Topic: "Flickr User Not Found" error message.

Hello, I have been looking at SimpleViewer for a while, and it looks awesome so I wanted to make one.

I am trying to hook it up to Flickr but having problems, I used the Flickr username ryancrisp in the configuration XML, no luck. I also tried another username which didnt work either.

Re: "Flickr User Not Found" error message.

I have already seen that post and as I stated in my first post I am using the username and have tried other usernames, felixturner works and another that I have found. I've been trying various Flickr users usernames to see if they work and some do and some don't.

Why?
Help?

Re: "Flickr User Not Found" error message.

Hi,

please check your username. 'ryancrisp' does not show as a username here:
http://www.flickr.com/search/people/?se … mp;m=names

To get your flickr user name, login to flickr and look for the 'signed in as...' text at the top right.

I have checked the username multiple times it is the correct one. I have also tried others (I stated this in my last reply) some work and some don't.

Want proof? Heres proof.

I just figured out why, because the year of birth on my Yahoo account is 1994, Flickr always hides the user from searches, gonna sort this out with Yahoo now.

Good to know thanks. Do you have a URL for this info?

No I just read it on some forum (can't remember now)
but all under 18 flickr users accounts do not appear in searches, and this cannot be changed. I just had to create a new account (:  tongue

My problem was that my "Screen Name" was "Epic Event".  When I changed my screen name to "epicevent", which is how my profile and pictures web page address were called, it worked perfectly.
