      • Windows 10 Universal application

        hello, im writing in the name of Windows 10 community which contains hundreds of thousands of users. Currently there is no official Flickr client on that platform, but i suggest to create one, because its money lying on the street. The best idea would be to create Windows 10 Universal application, working on every Windows 10 device, from smartphone, through tablet and Xbox console, ending with classic desktop or laptop. I think creating such client will ease the life of thousands of Flickr users working within Windows 10 ecosystem. There is much space to gather and many new opportunities to…

          • Basic instructions on how to use Flckr

            Why not include a simple 'how to' tutorial for new members. Having just joined, I haven't a clue how to use the site and am completely baffled by it.

              • Pop-up to sign up

                My friends, who don't have a Flickr account, get a small window popping up when get to my page. It tells them that they should sign-up to get updates when I upload pictures. They don't want to sign-up, because they don't need a page. But the window will pop-up ON EVERY SINGLE PAGE of my account, whatever they have answered the first time. They showed me and this is VERY ANNOYING. Please don't upset non-Flickr guests to my page, they may not want to spend time on it!!!!! Not a good way to recruit new people, you upset them instead.

                  • Connection refused

                    Come on guys, get your act together. From four different ISPs, in three different geographical locations, I am forever having to patiently navigate my way through a sea of "Connection refused" errors or page timeouts.

                    As an individual, not such a big deal, but as the lead developer of a website with over 100gb/month traffic and thousands of active users, that we encourage to use Flickr to store their photos for easier integration with our system, it goes beyond frustrating.

                    What gives?

                    Sort it out, guys. I've had to resort to host file entries on our servers (and at home!)…

                      Hi Michael,

                      Thank you for your comments and information!

                      Our team is currently working on the investigation. But, we’d need more of your help to find out more details. If you do’t mind, could you provide the traceroute results to up.flickr.com? Also, please post any updates to this issue here.

                      Thanks for your Support again!

                      Regards,
                      Product Support

                    • Flickr app- Should be able to embed photos into group discussions.

                      It is really frustrating to not be able to embed photos into group discussions via phone. Many groups would benefit from this. I am in a daily photo journal group, and can only work on it from my desktop at home.

                      There should be an easy way to copy the HTML for different sizes (or even if just set on medium 500) in the app.

                        • This new version of uploader sucks!!!! I can't just drag and drop anymore. It's not simple. I miss the old version that just worked.

                          I want to be able to create folders and drag and drop into the app. This new version is trying to be too smart. It wouldn't let me upload videos the last time to tried because they "were not pictures"... Just give me something I can create a folder with and drop photos into a list...

                              • Today-change in the front page layout.

                                5-7-2015 I'm tired of the sudden and abrupt changes on Flickr...

                                The header photo is too large-takes up almost 1/3rd of the page along with the menu bar!

                                Too much white on the edges now with hardly any space between the photos.

                                Did people actually request the changes listed above?

                                Also, if you're going to have a list above the photos that include "camera roll," "albums," "creations," etc., please PLEASE include "collections."

                                Thanks,

                                Dave in Maine

                                        When someone replies to one of your photographs, could we not have the opportunity to click a LIKE or THANK-YOU button.

                                        I would really like to thank someone who has gone to the trouble of adding a nice comment...a little like the LIKE on Facebook.

                                          Auto-tagging needs to have an opt-out option. and auto-tagging should only be added to newly uploaded images. Many images are being totally inappropriately tagged, and trawling through hundreds or thousands of old images to remove inappropriate tags in very undesirable.
