I recently created an account on the Flickr photography website for a friend and uploaded a couple of their pictures (3 to be precise) to get them started. I tagged each picture appropriately but found that they were not coming through on the RSS feed for that tag (something which I use Flickr for quite extensively).
After some searching, I found out (via a Flickr Forum Article) that:
- All new Flickr accounts must be reviewed before being accessible via the Flickr RSS feeds
- In order for a new account to be reviewed, you must have uploaded at least 5 public photos.
Since I had only uploaded 3 photos initially, this looks like the chief suspect for the behaviour that I’m seeing. I’ve uploaded some more now so will post back if/when the issue is resolved.
