Flickr forum has 62 pages of people saying “change it back”
..and 15 minutes later up to 63 pages.
I know it’s easy to not like change but I hate it!
The old format was clear and easy to use – this is slower and too cluttered. Lets hope they give the option of going back to the old format.Posted 4 years ago

Probably because home PC is still on XP but I’m on a 100mb BB conncetion & all I get is stupid spinning balls & Error on page. 👿
Have to log in from work on W7 machine but if its as shite as folk are saying I’ll be on to Paypal for a refund on my Pro subscription.
Not happy. 🙁Posted 4 years ago
Judging by what my average views has been over the past few weeks, vs the cliff it appears to have fallen off today, one of two things has happened: either
1) The demand for mediocre-to-occasionally-good amateur landscape photography has reduced significantly overnight, or
2) Noone else likes the new Flickr, or they just can’t find anythingPosted 4 years ago
Certainly some display bugs
Certainly seems like a work in progress – 2 totally different looks+feels going on depending what page you’re on (half looks like old flickr, but with new menu bar, the new bits really do look like G+ photos)
Never used 500px, but lots of people are mentioning that, so I guess there was some apparent plagiarism there too?Posted 4 years ago
Good lord – $500 for only double space. 😯
And it appears that if you let ‘pro’ lapse, you also lose control over who can access your high-res images. Also there’s no way of getting pro again, so once it’s gone it’s gone. My guess is they’ll try to phase it out over the coming months.
All in all, it looks like a prime reason not to rely on cloud providers for backup…Posted 4 years ago
How do you double unlimited?
You know exactly what I mean. Stop trolling.
You double the 1TB free space you get if your pro account lapses, or if you’re not pro. You can no longer buy pro if you’re not already pro, nor can you renew if you let it lapse. But you knew that, surely?Posted 4 years ago

No I didn’t being a Pro member already when I looked at the info on the link above it only showed me the option. So nope not trolling I was just confused where this $500 was coming from. The solution is simple if you want to use flickr then just start a second account.Posted 4 years agoBillOddieSubscriber
Seems to be very little point in hanging on to a pro account.
The main reasons I went to pro was image size restrictions and upload limits.
The former is defo gone now and the latter appears to have gone but there is nothing explicitly stating it on the Flickr site but a couple of places have suggested there is no longer a monthly upload limit.
I don’t have an issue with the new UI.
As for Ads? Meh, doesn’t stop me using Faceache.Posted 4 years agometalheartSubscriber
Great, I’m at work and all I can see of my photostream is spinning balls…. Thanks yahoo. that’s just great.
Are they trying to go down the facebook route? I rarely go on that (partly because they keep fannying about with the layout…) and I’ve stopped posting.
Can anybody recommend an alternative photo site?Posted 4 years ago
