No more private photo uploads? [Jul. 30th, 2013|07:58 am]

(I asked this in the support forum, too, but I'm not getting any response; maybe this community is a better place to find the people who know.)

I maintain a photo uploader for Android which uses the Fotobilder API. Yesterday I noticed that private uploads, using the PicSec: 0 setting, were not working: they get an error message:

<Error code='211'>Invalid argument: PicSec</Error>

When I switch to public (PicSec: 255) or friends-locked (PicSec: 254), the client works correctly. And I know PicSec: 0 was working no more than three weeks ago.

Does anybody know whether private uploads have been deliberately blocked in the Fotobilder API for some reason, or is it just a bug?

(On further experimentation, I find that GalSec: 0 is also being refused, which makes me think it's more likely to be deliberate...)
