iCloud.com - nothing's there!

Signed into iCloud.com last night thinking I could see all my pictures it's been syncing.

Nope, nothing there at all. Not even Contacts! Any ideas?!?

There's definitely syncing going on 'cause it keeps warning that I've only got a few KB left.

iCloud PhotoStream pictures aren't supposed to be visible at icloud.com.

The PhotoStream feature is not an online gallery - it is a conduit for wirelessly transferring photos you take on one iOS device to other iOS devices and your computer. It stores up to the last 1000 photos for up to 30 days.

If PhotoStream is setup on another iOS device you own, the photos it has uploaded (not synced) will be visible in the PhotoStream section of the Photos app on other iOS devices setup with the same iCloud account. You can also setup iCloud on your computer so images are automatically transferred to your computer.

Could just be a temporary issue? What with iOS 7.02 out and Mac OS X about to be updated?
I just logged into our account - no issues; everything there that should be there.

Any issues on any of your devices? Have you changed settings? Password/s?

snozdop,
thanks for the clarification. I should've mentioned that in my reply. Oops.
