  1. new profile format: don't like it. How can I get rid of the showcase? Profile page doesn't feel like mine - it feels like yours.

  4. Request to Flickr: set the default for "Downloading" and "Share" to DISabled

    At this moment "downloading" on the All Sizes page is by default set to *enabled* (from our Settings: *anyone*)
    This is also the case for the Share feature in our Settings.

    In my opinion this gives the wrong message; the interpretation that "free to download" equals "Free to use" is an easy step.
    Same with Sharing: why would you be allowed to slap an image just anywhere you like, without taking into consideration that the photographer may not endorse that particular blog or site ?

    Flickr could be an innovator, curbing this if-it's-on-the-net-it-is-free-to-take mentality by turning the default around: no,…

  6. Please remove the "profiles makeover" banner.

    Please remove the banner, especially since I've clicked on it.

    And the forum "reply" link is dead.

  8. collections need to be easily accessi

    I have over 6000 photos on flickr. They were organized using "collections". I need the "collections tab to be easily available so that I and others can find my photos. This isn't just a convenience, it is absolutely necessary. Please don't start some new way of organizing the photos. It would be impractical to go back and reorganize them now.

  10. Set limits on favorites for new accounts

    Every day I have to police the people that fave photos of children on my stream next to photos of adult ****. Often I am removing my photos from their faves or outright blocking them. Their accounts get deleted. But then they make a new account and begin anew.

    My Feature Request is this: Do not allow new accounts to set any favourites for 30, 60 or even 90 days. This should not adversely affect legitimate photographers.

    At the very least limit how many favorites new accounts can set or the frequency that they can do it.

  12. Transfer pictures from Showbox or other online storage

    Anyway you can make it to where pictures from Shoebox or google photos can be transferred to Flickr? Seems that feature doesn't exist anywhere that I can find. It would free up more space on phones too

  13. Bring back the mobile site!

    I loved the easyness of the mobile site, to be able to see how many faves and comments I have in a single look. This is not an improvement!

  14. Please fix the album slideshow URL link feature. I want a separate URL for my slideshow that I can use as a link for friends/clients

    I used to send a URL link of my slideshow to friends and clients. Now the URL link takes me to my static photos not the slideshow. Please bring back a separate URL for slideshows. Pleeeaaassee!

  16. Please Bring Back "Daily Aggregate Account"

    I used to be able to see a "Daily Aggregate Account" where I could see how many views, comments, and favorites I get daily. Now since my pro account has been taken away, I no longer have this old feature of a "Daily Aggregate Account". PLEASE bring back the "Daily Aggregate Account". I miss it a lot. Request From Steven Chateauneuf. snc145

  17. Provide a way to remove GROUPS from my Flickr Feed

    The new Flickr Feed page is TERRIBLE. I don't want to keep up the random posts to a ton of groups. I do want to keep up with a very SELECT group of PEOPLE I follow--there's a big difference between the two. The developers can go off on their merry tangents, just give us a way to arrange things the way WE like. Seem's fair enough to me!

  18. Fav/Views rate in the stats page

    Could we have a third column in the stats page? One that show number of favs divided by the number of views for each photo.

    This would help people know if a photo is actually more interesting for the people who I showed the photo to. If I get 1 then everybody who saw it faved it, if I get numbers close to 0, most of the people who saw it did not faved it.

    I think it would also make people think twice about dumping photos in groups.

    thanks

  19. I just noticed that flickr has changed the camera info for the Pentax K-1 to "point and shoot".

    The Pentax K-1 is a full frame DSLR with interchangeable lenses, not a "point and shoot".

  20. FlickrMail Suggestion

    One suggestion for FlickrMail. It's good to have the new mail icon on each user's page, except that there isn't one on my own user page, so I cannot directly access my mailbox page. I can work around it by putting a bookmark to the mailbox page in my browser, but how about adding a mail icon on the user's home page to allow this?
