    Hi Jan

    There was a glitch in edge servers that were blocking certain type of requests from some IP addresses – this issue has been fixed. Marking this as completed. Thank you for your patience.

        Write the advertisers and the board about your complaints since Yahoo isn't listening.

        I get this too - even created a new album called DeleteMe and moved all the pics to that album, but guess what - I can't delete an album either!!!

        This is such a basic feature and it's completely broken, I can only assume yahoo are breaking things on purpose to force people to stop using the Groups and move to using Flickr or something.
        I used to use Flickr and you screwed it up so stopped using it! now groups are screwed.
        Not only that but you've managed to break email as well ( Download attachments doesn't work any more for me, just does the scanning message then nothing ).

        Have yahoo replaced their development team with a bunch of new kids just out of school?

        Has there been any ideas of how this is to be resolved? I have several members that are putting prressure on me to get there pictures removed and frankly I am concerned it will get fixed? Common Yahooo help us out here

        I can't delete an empty album that I created. I get an error message that says there was a error in loading content. Clearly if you are deleting something you are not loading content so the error message tells me that something is wrong in the link between the photo album 'delete' button and the actual script that will execute. Please resolve!

        Please fix this! i'm the moderator of several yahoo groups and I can't delete one photo off of any of the sites? Come on. What the **** are you people doing there, sitting there going in circles in a desk chair? i keep getting this bar at the bottom in purple.

        Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content.

        So what are you going to do about it? I would love to know if there even who reads these or not.

        Same Problem FreecycleSpringfieldVA... We have a member complaining... How do we get this fixed?

        Experiencing similar issue with albums in the Freecycle St. Louis group. Would like to be able to delete photos of items I have posted, but now are no longer available, however I also receive the purple band stating, "An error has occured loading content." Frustrating, please fix.

        Same problem in our group. Even as group owner, I am unable to delete an album.

        Why don't you just go back to the old system that worked fine.

      • EevieEevie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am also receiving the purple error message. I am a list owner of a Freecycle group and several members are commenting on photos and leaving their phone numbers. We worked around that by deleting the photos since we cannot delete the comments. However, we can no longer delete photos or any albums!

        We MUST have this capability back as soon as possible.

        The same is happening in the Database - we cannot delete the old tables!!!!

      • FloydaFloyda commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am having the same problem! And it's very frustrating. I don't understand why they had to change the groups! It was working fine for me.

        I just tried to delete photos, and delete an album. For a new album, I was able to delete the one photo and then the album - but I couldn't delete the album unless I deleted the photo first. For an older album, the member who owned the album cannot delete the photos or the album - and as the moderator/owner, I can't delete them, either. That album has an apostrophe in the album name, if that matters.
