Something broke in FlickrLand?

Friday, November 9, 2007 by Dave Winer.

The docs are scarce and the community is scattered, so it's hard to tell what may have changed or why. With that caveat... Permalink to this paragraph

This API call used to return a variety of sizes for each picture in my account, including the only one I wanted (for backup purposes) the "original" size.  Permalink to this paragraph

But all of a sudden, yesterday or the day before, it stopped returning it. I swear I didn't change anything in my code. Hunting through Google I see various bug reports, but nothing that quite looks like this one. Permalink to this paragraph

Update: The consensus is that the user has to be authenticated to get the Original size picture. This must be a new policy. I'll be able to test it a little later. In the meantime, my Wii arrived. Permalink to this paragraph
