I think maybe I did somehow. The screencap I shared at the start of this thread looks pretty much the same as everything does now. No clue how that happened.
On the new Flickr, I really dislike the black background. The rest is annoying, but I suppose I'll get used to it. I just wish they would make these things more customizable, and also announce things in advance rather than just spring them on us. Some of the reaction on Flickr is a little over the top, though, IMO.
As a freeloader I appreciate the extra space, but I understand why someone who recently paid for Pro would be pretty annoyed. I did spend a fair amount of time on a workaround of the limits of a free account*, time that now turns out to be wasted. But oh well.
One thing that would be really helpful is if anyone has a good Flickr search engine they could point to. I used to always access Flickr via a third party site that would allow you to do a search and then put up a screen of 100 thumbnails, sorted by various criteria. It was a great way to quickly pull up the most recent photos tagged with LEGO a hundred at a time, and see them quickly to decide which ones you wanted to look at. Sadly that site died last year, and I haven't found a good replacement. Does anyone know any?
*The workaround, which is now seemingly obsolete, is one I learned from Nnenn. He had a free account, but he also created a Flickr group called Nnenn's MOCs, or something like that. If you went to his photostream you could only see the most recent 200 pics, but all of the photos added to the group were still available, even if they were more than 200 photos ago.
