Yikes!

WTF??!? That was a dumb idea.

Also, the fact that you have to click several times just to see comments and/or the photo description is incredibly annoying and time consuming when going through multiple photos.

Hmmm, I wonder if they are still monkeying with that because when I looked at a couple of pics this morning the description and comments were visible without my having to click anywhere.

I've also been told that the "sets" have disappeared,

Now that is just ridiculous. Without the ability to create sets the whole thing is basically useless.

...comments can't be edited...

Oh, c'mon this is getting ridiculous.

I sincerely hope that they "fix" the above mistakes.

That's why I just comment on mocs straight from the homepage. I think you're still able to edit there... that way I don't have to bother wading through the complicated mess Flickr has become. Ugh.

Seems to me that they changed Flickr back to some of its good old settings. :) Comments are now at the bottom and you can see and add notes to pictures! :D So happy they took some advice. The comments are even in the right order now! Hope they keep it like this or even better yet change it back to the original version.

I'm hoping that this is a result of yesterday's "Black Day" on flickr. If they keep it like this, I will be extremely happy. I was getting really tired of using the French version. :P

Yeah what was that whole black friday thing? It wasn't even friday, so I am so confused. :? I found a way to go back to the original months ago, so I don't even know what the new setup looks like lol.

It wasn't "Black Friday" it was just "Black Day". Many of us did not have any way to opt out of the new format, so we protested by posting a black image yesterday. It looks like it worked, because today for the first time in a month I was switched back to the old version.

There are tons of places you can find out details about all of the changes, but for me, the two biggest things were not being able to add notes and that the comments were moved over to a sidebar where you could only read a few at a time.

I encountered the same thing, it's hideous. I fortunately found the "go back to the normal version" button. Hopefully the "black day" protest will prevent them from permanently implementing it.
