  1. Create a Group Founder Category For All Groups

    This has been brought up, discussed, and requested repeatedly over the last decade, yet Flickr has done absolutely nothing to fix the situation and address the issues with rogue administrators that at some point just take over a group and will not cooperate with any of the other admins who are trying to keep the group on track with its intended purpose!

    As a group founder you may or may not have experienced this issue as of yet, but if you have granted admin privileges or intend to grant admin privileges to any member of your group, be forewarned that…

    • Present great Flickr Groups in the Weekly Flickr

      There are some awesome groups in Flickr that do more than just collecting photographs. It would be great to present some of these groups in the Weekly Flickr blog.
      I'm part of the admin team of Flickr's 100 Best (https://flic.kr/g/dhB69L). It is the Hunger Game of Flickr and has a limited pool of 100 awesome photographs of all kind. Over 10'000 members challenge the actual pool photographs to get theirs in. Our group is highly active with over 50 challenges a month.
      Besides the fun aspect, members get a serious and constructive critique in our group and fantastic…

      • Groups have no owners

        Groups whose owners were deleted or otherwise abandoned the group leaves it in a state that excludes owner permissions. Spammers join and abuse the group email with no way to stop it. Also, people aren't able to be approved for membership when required.

        There needs to be way for moderators and members to gain/upgrade to ownership in event there is no owner or the current owner(s) haven't been active in the group for a period of time.

        Please fix this.

        • Flag photos for removal from group

          Oftentimes, groups are tied to a specific topic. Members often won’t read the rules before adding photos, Moderators might abandon the group and not pay too much attention..
          It would be nice to be able to keep groups clean, and add the ability to flag photos for removal from a specific group – as a reminder for the moderator.

              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!

              • Easier group invite

                The group invitation function requires that the person doing the invitation know whether the invitee already has a Flickr account.

                I should be able to send an invite list and have Flickr provide two different links - a request to join the group directly, if the person has an account already. If I guess incorrectly, the link that is sent to them is useless.

                • group icon

                  what has happened to the possibility of selecting icons by copying and pasting a link? This was available on the administrator page, but has now disappeared. Alternatively, when photos can be chosen from the pool, the search should allow to search within the group, not within the administrator's pool.

                  • Recycle Bin for Deleted Group Discussions and Comments

                    Groups can have many moderators and admins.

                    And though I understand group creators should always carefully choose which privileges are given to "trusted" members when they deem they need help monitoring their group, it's often very difficult to ascertain just how someone will act once they are elevated to administrator status, and given the power to make drastic deletions and changes within the group.

                    Not all admins or moderators will agree on everything concerning the group, especially when the group allows open discussions to be created and discussed by group members, moderators, and admins.

                    Unfortunately any admin can just delete…

                    • adding members to a group

                      The overall groups experience is non-intuitive and very cumbersome.

                      Creating a group with the appropriate type - private, semi-private, public - is confusing. Private groups being non-discoverable, I needed to convert it to searchable (semi-private) which was not possible. So I had to create a brand new group. There's no way to "clone" a group, so I had to try and get everyone from the old group signed into the new group.
                      Which brought me to the "searching for people" experience, which is quite lacking. Most members I searched for could not be found (perhaps they're private too). So now…

                        hi flickr team , might be a good idea to order their group category ? and then upload the photo by selecting the category that contains all the desired groups .
                        Thanks Andrea

                        • Return to Group "initial" view

                          There are a lot of non-Flickr users visiting a Group that I belong to and Admin. I created an Admin Blast that appears very nicely at the top when they go to what I m calling the front page at flickr.com/groups/dncb. I'm telling them how to use the search and sort capabilities to find what they want and they move on to individual pictures, scrolling through the result set.

                          As long as they stay within that result set, I would like them to have a one-button click to get back to that front page. Yes, they can delete the search…

                            I have created groups that are invitation only. When I get join requests, I do not approve anyone unless they have art work that is appropriate to the theme of the group. If the person who did the join request has a private photostream, I can't see their work. I can't approve what I can't see. Please make the work available for viewing to administrators approving a join request. I have had to deny dozens of requests because I can't see the work.

                            • Fix bugs in Beta group

                              1) Search for tag "2016-36" in group "DNCB". The interface claims there are 51 photos, when actually 52 exist.
                              2) the Advanced search > Dates is confusing. Many photos taken on Aug 24, but none appear unless the left-hand date is either <blank> or set to Aug 23. Conventional behaviour would expect them to appear when left-hand box is Aug 24 or earlier.
                              3) Advanced search button has combo box for selecting Date Taken or Date Uploaded as the sort criteria. Has no effect; sorting is always by Date Uploaded.

                                They did the following:
                                1. Go to the group pool page https://www.flickr.com/groups/dncb/pool/
                                2. Click on the search icon just above the group pool
                                3. No option to search for tags so I search for 2016-36
                                4. I get no results so I click on the advance icon to get options.
                                5. Set to Search in Tags.
                                Result:
                                Nothing returned. Is this how you are searching?
                                If you know what photo that is not in the search results, can you please check that photo on the photo page and see that it’s in that group and has that tag?

                                Thank you!

                                  I was using the app and accidently left the group I created. It is a private group so now I have no access. There was no alert to my leaving. I though it meant I was leaving the group to go to the home page, not that I was LEAVING, taking myself out of the group.
                                  Crazy.. please correct and how can I get back in my own group?
