  1. Statistics error, what are we paying Pro prices for??

    Statistics are not correctly reconciling a days activity. Way out of Whack from views on photo to what is counted. Been steadily degrading for several days now. Today is worst. What is being done to fix this?

    • Unable to upload photos

      I keep getting "this file failed to upload" and "file timed out" messages with all ordinary .jpgs, retry also fails this morning. No "bad panda" message so apparently Flickr is unaware.
      What gives?

      • Limit the number of groups each photo can be added to

        Many photos are added to as many as 1,000 groups, even if the photos are completely irrelevant to the groups. This has become a huge problem for group administrators, requiring either a queue or constant attention to what is in the group.

        There used to be a limit to the number of groups any one photo could belong to. Eliminating that limit drastically increased spammers ability to mass share their content. Please restore that limit.

        • FLICKR NEEDS A DUPLICATE FINDER

          FLICKR NEEDS A WORLD CLASS DUPLICATE FINDER
          So I have just upgraded to the PRO as I have decided that FLICKR will be the reference library for all the family photos. I had already uploaded about 30K images (which took days - but I expected that). from my mac. However I then decided that I would upload any images on my wife's laptop and all the phones. Unfortunately despite the fact that FLICKR says it doesn't upload duplicates a good number have slipped through the net. On my mac it's easy I just fire up PHOTOSWEEPER and I can easily…

          • Make stereoscopic photo viewer

            The main idea is make all this stereoscopic content accesible from new VR devices as Oculus Rift, Gear VR, Google Cardboard etc.

            For example, i have to donload and see the stereoscopic images in special viewer as SterePhotoMaker.

            2016 we are have HUGE jump forward to VR tecnology!

            So peoples as me and other need content!

            Please contact if you need more details and i will help you as much as i can.

            • Subscription Renewals

              When you send an email reminding me that my subscription is due for renewal, it would be good customer service to include the cost.

              It is not very professional or customer friendly to send, what is in effect, a bill, without stating the actual cost.

              • Add like (or heart) near favs button

                I'd like to have two buttons next to the other users' photographs: a "like" and a "favs" (the same used by 500px). The "Like" (or heartin 500px) button is useful to communicate that picture like but do not want to put it among their favorites.
                Without "like" the number of the favorites become huge and useless for any personal research.
                Thank you.

                          • I'm having difficulty uploading pictures

                            I'm having difficulty uploading pictures today. I was about to post pictures from our village's Memorial Day Parade and it kept telling me to retry uploading all the pictures over and over again! I had to remove all the pictures I tried to upload! How come this is happening?

                                • Make Explore Great Again

                                  Maybe make the criteria to get into Explore less opaque?

                                  Flickr guards this like it's KFC's seven spices, but that just frustrates users over seemingly senseless, unstated rules. If photos with borders are not permitted, why not state that? If adding photos to lots of groups lowers its viability, why not tell users that? It's ridiculous.

                                  No wonder people resort to following thousands of accounts for exposure - that seems to be the only surefire way to hit Explore, while everyone else's photos are only seen by their followers and people who browse group pools.

                                    A way to view 5 or so images from all my groups, on one page.

                                    Groups is how I find new people to follow, I believe this is how the Flickr community also flourished. Surface the images!
