Update - Heads up! We've completed internal testing and everything's looking good. We're starting to gradually open the site up to members and monitoring site performance. We'll continue to post here as more updates are available. Thanks for your continued patience during this time!

Well, the task is pretty monumental (details, if you missed it). If they get it done in 24h, I'd call that pretty decent...

Not your normal maintenance and they inform it could be longer than expercted. It a move of data center from Yahoo to Amazon.
QuoteQuote:
It is an exciting time at Flickr right now as we approach the final stretch of our migration of Flickr’s data and systems. You may remember that one of the biggest steps we promised in revitalizing Flickr was to bring it increased speed and stability. Part of that process was re-engineering our underlying infrastructure and moving it all from Yahoo’s data centers and onto Amazon Web Services (AWS), where SmugMug’s photos have been kept safe and secure for years.
The process involves hundreds of millions of gigabytes of photos and videos (literally billions of photos) and 100+ million accounts. We knew there would be a few bumps in the road, and one of those unfortunate bumps is the need for some planned downtime while we finish the migration. Luckily though, when this step is complete, we’ll be well on our way to a much faster, much more secure, much more stable Flickr.
The details:

On May 22, 2019, Flickr will be down for planned maintenance for about 12 hours starting at 5pm PDT (that’s 8pm EDT or 12am GMT on May 23).
Your data, photos, videos, and settings will all be perfectly safe during this downtime. Once we are back online, you’ll have access to each and every item just as it was before. Also, all your photo rights will obviously continue to be protected and respected.

They used time estimates from a Microsoft Windows progress bar. It probably got to 99% in twelve hours and they thought "great, we're just one cup of coffee away from done."
