Protest the new Flickr!

Postby Brickninja » Wed Mar 26, 2014 9:11 am

Hey guys, I know lots of people, like me, dislike the new Flickr format. Remember that "black day" protest image? Well, there's another one you can download and reshare to protest it. If you want the old one back, please reshare this image!!

Dang it, they've done it again. It went this way briefly for me a couple of months ago, but then it reverted back again.

One solution that works (for the moment) is to change your language preference. Right-click your avatar in the upper right-hand corner of your home screen, as if you were checking your FlickrMail or something. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and there are language choices. I chose French, which looks largely the way it did last week. If you are using Chrome as a browser you can even then set your browser to automatically translate everything back to English (probably other browsers do this as well, Chrome is just the one I'm using). It's not perfect - it doesn't look like notes are working for me - but it's better.

It keeps the old format on my Kindle Fire, which is what I'm mostly on, but I want to help those who are on computers. Plus I still go on it on the computer sometimes, especially to upload photos.

Just as a tip, pressing 'Enter' when trying to make a line break in a comment doesn't work now, so try 'Shift' then 'Enter'. ;)

Hey,

I was getting sick of the odd translations from French, and so I tried this hack:

It seems to work. The only complaint I have is the black background, but otherwise this seems okay.
