About Flickr Ideas
We're betting that as you use Flickr you'll come up with all sorts of thoughts like "Ooooh, if only Flickr did that!" or "I can't believe that they've missed this!". Rather than let all your great ideas go to waste, why not post them here?
Please be patient when you request to join. Flickr Ideas is currently invite-only to prevent spam, which this group has been a particular target of in the past. Group admins are volunteers with busy lives. It may sometimes take us a bit to catch up with requests to join. Also, don't bother explaining your idea when you request to join -- the request system is for spam prevention only, and nothing you say in your request to join gets passed on to Flickr. If we need an explanation from you because we can't judge from what we can see, we'll Flickrmail you.
Please check the Existing Topics list and search the discussions before posting a new idea to see if a similar topic has already been started -- if it has, post on that topic rather than starting a new thread. Great minds often think alike :) If that topic happens to be locked (the old system used to auto-lock threads after a few months), Flickr mail an admin with the URL to the discussion and we can unlock it. If we see a duplicate thread/idea, we may try and combine the discussions (lock one thread and redirect the replies to another older one).
Please do not Flickrmail your idea to a group admin. We are not staff and do not have any say in the development of the site. Staff do actively monitor this group, and will see your idea if posted here. However, please read Dunstan's [Flickr staff] reply as to why staff do not actively comment on ideas here.
If what you want to post is not specifically proposing an idea or you just want to spark discussion on something else, please look for another suitable group for that. For instance, if you are advertising some new software you have written or discovered, try the Flickr Hacks group. Similarly, if you have an API suggestion or question, ask the API mailing list. For bugs/issues with the site, please post in the Help Forum. Thanks!
Also, please be respectful of fellow Flickr members, as is expected in the Flickrverse in general. :-)
