    Pages on maps, confusing and not necessary.
    Having several pages of the same part of a Flickr map is counter-intuitive and awkward. It is no longer dictated by what is technically possible.
    At one and the same level of zoom there should be only one page. When a certain level of zoom gets "too" crowded, consolidate nearby markers as one, labeling it "lots" when necessary. When I zoom in on an area with a marker of "lots" I would expect the "lots" marker to dissolve into several smaller groups of "lots", or number of images, and/or finally individual images.

  3. Restricted photos shall not be visible via open graph protocol.

    For photos set privacy as "public" but safety level as "restricted" (which means they are visible for logged-in adults), logged-out users will see a warning about its status and a hint to log in.
    However, the meta tag which set "og:image" in HTML code still notes a direct URL of the photo. This makes social websites such as Facebook show the NSFW photo to their users. And this is no good.

  4. 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

  5. NOT WORKING WITH BLURB!!?

    I have designed lots of my photo books with blurb as I could import photos directly from flickr, but now this option isn't available. Blurb says it's a change in flickr's end.
    I am very disappointed with this! Please change it back!

  6. 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,…

  7. 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

  8. Probably a common problem. Can't download on chrome on mobile.

    I heard that you had to pay for the pro package to enable your photos to be downloadable by other people. I did pay for it. But yeah, no downloading on the most commonly used browser on mobile. I had my friends try to no success. I need this capability because I am always taking photos of different people and they cant get these photos to their device to use.

  10. BUG: Switching from "Private" to "Public" deleted all existing Faves, and reset to zero.

    This bug in the software still exists. I just changed a photo from private to public and it deleted the FAVES count. Photo had 5 Faves from group viewers, as of 2:00PM MST.
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/wng555/33638165924/in/photostream/
    Switched to Public view, and Fave count reset to Zero!
    This bug has been in existence since the start of 2017. Please fix these bugs to your statistics, otherwise the features are meaningless.

    uploader counts too often again and again and needs too much resources. Should do that rare and use not more than 10-20% of CPU

  12. Photo Books with own-make Photos to sell them to other Users and Clandars and Puzzles too, like calvendo.de

    it would be great when Flickr gives more Photo Products out to sell them. For example like fineartprint.de and Calvendo.de

  13. Please remove the "profiles makeover" banner.

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

    And the forum "reply" link is dead.

  19. Make it possible to upload a photo one day, but have it posted to Flickr on a future date.

    I will be moving in the very near future, and I may not have access to the internet on a certain date. My idea is to allow a photo to be uploaded one day (ex: June 15), and then have Flickr post it on the day requested (ex: July 1) so that it can then be 'visible' to all on that certain day. I know I can upload now and only make it visible to myself, but if I'm not available on the correct date to change the visibility option and change the date of the upload, then the photo…
