Is anybody getting this error over the last couple of days? I know Flickr are making changes to their API at the moment so wondering if this is because of that. I'm running the latest version of FlickrNET.

No, not seen that at all.

The code runs through various unit tests, and I've never seen that error.

The 402 status code isn't one ever actually used (at least not for its original 'future' intent). According to Wikipedia Youtube use it if the user has made too many requests and has to now enter a CAPTCHA.

Thanks Sam,

I see on Twitter another user is experiencing the same behaviour over the last day.

I'll dig a little deeper and see what I can find.

Post on the discussion list says to contact the Flickr developer if you are having this problem:
