As a moderator of several groups, I can only fight for the rights of inviting photos to my groups just like the Admins can do it.
It is even very complicated to make an invite for a photo when I'm only a Moderator.
Some moderators would help their Admin(s), and Flickr should give them the same rights for inviting directly.

Also you can find a short but useless discuss about the same topic:

i agree, and mods should be able to invite pics. they also should NOT be allowed to ban/unban members. this is not a good thing. this would be a smart trade.
Villa Sams Posted 8 years ago. Edited by Villa Sams (member) 8 years ago
I also agree.

Is there a reason why mods aren't allowed to do this?
Villa Sams 8 years ago
The reason why this works out so well is because I have just had to start my group over from scratch because of a rogue admin.

I have a base group and a second 'step-up' group for invited photos that receive X amount of awards from the base group. To make sure that only invited photos enter the pool we've created a group queue for the step-up group. The admin invite surpasses that queue.

When over 100 photos a day get invited to the step-up group it's hard to make sure, by hand, that only invited photos are submitted. It's really great to have this feature so you can be sure that only invited photos are going into the pool.

Only admins can use this feature... but my last group was destroyed but an out-of-control admin.

Giving this ability to Mods would help us in the 'queue' area tremendously, while at the same time keeping the group safe from rogue admin takeovers.

Hope this made sense.

It would be nice to have a reason though. I'm sure it would help a lot of people move on if they had a valid reason. Even if it's not valid, those who hang out in these discussion threads will at least be able to pass on the answer to the people who bring it up here time and time again.

I mean, it's an idea that makes perfect sense to me. If there is a reason that you keep getting ignored I'd love to hear it.

Bumping topics that no one else has said anything on for a week is not a way to force Flickr staff to do what you want them to do.

Flickr staff read this forum. They can tell what ideas have a lot of support from members of this forum. They can also tell when it's the same person bumping a topic that no one else has commented on recently.

Flickr staff have explained how they decide which ideas to implement in this thread. And this one. Thread bumping isn't one of the things they consider.

I still don't understand why moderators are allowed to remove pics from the group pool, but aren't allowed to invite them to the pool using the dropdown. It seems like these are very similar tasks and should be in the moderator role.
AdrianWarren PRO 8 years ago
Clearly different groups have different ways of working, so what I suggest is that we simply add more granularity in rights.

By all means have a default behaviour (I suggest as they are now) but it would be nice if you could add the ability to customise the moderator rights on a per moderator basis.

Just my 2c ;)
AllieW. 8 years ago
Actually, it would be nice if the drop down worked for all groups of which one was a member (and just brought up the relevant invite code). I always intend to invite my contacts to groups, but the only feasible way to do it is to have two pages open and so I tend to forget. But I expect that would be very cumbersome to implement.

It also forces me to over-promote people to admin so that they CAN invite. Not good!

Seroujo 7 years ago
Yes. I am looking for this feature as well! After a long process I convinced an admin to give me moderator rights, thinking that I could now invite photos into the group... But it turns out I can't! But why not?

I don't want to be granted admin rights because then that gives me the unnecessary power to kick the other admins out, which is a responsibility not easily granted by another admin, nor is it one that I want!

So please allow moderators to allow photo invites! It's the logical thing to do! Thank you.
ColleenM PRO 7 years ago
Seroujo the unnecessary power to kick the other admins out,

Nope. No one can kick out an admin, ever. Not even another admin.

~Terrie K ~ Posted 7 years ago. Edited by ~Terrie K ~ (member) 7 years ago
As an admin to several groups I would NOT want moderators to have the admin invite option. Admin invite allows members to add photo's without joining the group. It should be used sparingly and not as a regular option to invite.
Seroujo 7 years ago
Hi ColleenM, thank you for the clarification. I guess then that's an even greater problem? :)

Perhaps have "founding admin" ,"admin", "moderator", and finally "member"?

Terrie K, I sort of see your point that it should be used sparingly, but inviting photos by moderators allows greater awareness of the existence of the group in the first place and allows moderators to sort of "hunt" for pictures fitting the group's interests...

I'm moderator of The best of Stereoscopy.
The Admin of the group has no time for invites nor does he want to share administration. By posting the usual invite snippet, I can only beg people
to join the group. Since everybodies group's list is overcrowded, some
hesitate to join first and therefore good photos doesn't find their way.

I can only agree with the opinions expressed in advance.
Why the group admin isn't allowed to permit invitations of photos to it's moderators or may be even regular group members?

Is it a technical problem? I'd be glad to hear a word or two from the staff.

This feature would be great for the moderator, and for the group. As an administrator & moderator, I fully support the idea!!
Richard Cocks Posted 7 years ago. Edited by Richard Cocks (member) 7 years ago
There should be a whole spectrum of rights, and these should be able to be custom assigned to each and any member.

This would emulate the concept of "users" and "usergroups" with regards to read/write/execute rights seen in most operating systems.

So you could define a group of people that could delete discussion threads but could not alter the pool, another that could remove photos from the pool, etc, building up a fully customised set of people.

And then you could include "grant/remove admin rights" in that list, so someone could make someone else an admin in all but name, but crucially not allow them to grant/ungrant admin rights themselves.

This would require some kind of "rights" control panel, but this is well within flickr's talent scope.

edit: And then we don't need to argue about whether moderators have X control or Y control, we can do as we see fit. We could define and edit the scope of the moderator user group, as well as define our own groups. Groups should not even be exclusive, so someone could be in a moderator user group and have all their rights, but also you could for one person in that group elevate their inviting rights if you didn't want all moderators to have that right.

You have my vote. As the sole administrator of three small groups, I would appreciate having my moderators able to go and collect some stuff. Moderators should have more power, and I am a staunch opponent of the "founder admin" level. It would be a poor replacement for the simple task of increasing moderator power.

Perhaps the administrator(s) could give certain permissions to moderators based off the group? This would be a great approach, letting everyone do what they want. For mine, at least, I'd let my mods invite anything and administer a bit more. I would be very happy if this became the standard.

Even though this is an old posting and a lengthy one at that, I would ban ALL invites. Even Admins should NOT be "inviting" I would also ban the "awards" and silly stuff attached to pictures, which often goes to extremes and causes the downloads to clog up. Its SPAM, and I consider it a disease that Flickr needs to turn off permanently.
My direct experience with invites is to immediately remove them from my pictures, and if it takes place repeatedly, I block the party.

John Falky I think you would be in a very small minority if you think invites are spam. It's one of the best facilities for getting your images into niche groups that you probably didn't know existed, and saves the bother of actually joining them.

Flickr's "invite to group" function is not related to current trend of adding in "awards" and group icons to invites. That's a different matter altogether.

I also immediately remove those gawdy images from my stream, and in a few cases have blocked those that repeatedly add them. I've also added my voice to the number who want those banned (or at least give me the option of not allowing them in my stream).

But again, that has nothing to do with Flickr's in-built invite code.

It would be very helpful if moderators could do also invitations. Because with invitations you can a support a group.

To do this.!
John Falkenstine PRO 6 years ago
Since this string won't die I will simply re-iterate my viewpoint. NO invitations. If you like an image, post a link to it, its that simple.
Flickr is absolutely infested with worthless invitations. Moderators should be moderating, not spamming other people's pictures with invites. If a group doesn't work out, and it needs invitations to keep going, its probably not that viable anyway.

This issue is driving me mad. I am the only mod in a group where the admin seems to have disappeared. I can only invite people to submit to the group via long-winded cutting and pasting AND these poor invitees have to join the group in order to post their pic there!!! It's a real big hassle (and of course as a result, very few people submit their pix to the group.)

To be honest I feel like just giving up with this group - it's just too much hard work without flickr help in issuing invitations.
Patrick Costello PRO 5 years ago
>poor invitees have to join the group in order to post their pic there

Your group will not flourish without members. The admin invite has its uses, but it can actually damage groups if overused. At the extreme end, you can end up with a pool full of images but no members, so no regular audience. And no members means no discussion threads.
ColleenM PRO 5 years ago
The hills are alive

Start your own group, and shut down this one.

As moderator, you can:
a) delete all the threads
b) delete all the images
c) remove all the members except the admins.
d) lock discussions so no new ones can start
e) lock the pool so no new images can be posted.

Then post a single thread in which you re-direct everyone to the new, active group.
Patrick Costello PRO 5 years ago
Which all seems a lot of aggravation if the only issue is an inability to send out admin invites.

True. The person would still have all the other hard work of running a group.

The "long-winded cutting and pasting" could be replaced with a simple invite code. But finding the pictures, adding the invite, keeping discussion topics going, etc would be the same amount of effort.
TPorter2006 PRO 5 years ago
Some groups aren't about discussions or members, they just want to collect images. So if you want a group of pictures that are just wind chimes in the moonlight or something, you want to collect those pics. A moderator would help with this kind of invite process. A nice option would be to give admins the ability to allow their moderators to invite photos..or not.
It would be awesome to have a moderator group invite button!!

Am all for making things easier for our team and members this would be a fantastic enchantment to groups!!
RobertEdnie 5 years ago
I agree that moderators should have the [invite] button. This is a function that isn't too contention to request a moderator to perforn. If an admin has already enough trust to promote a member to moderator it is not too much to expect them to control the group's invitations. The admin rights should be for controlling members and making changes to the group's home page.
Be7 5 years ago
As admin and group founder I see no principal difference between moderating discussions or the group pool. Both are vital parts in a group and they ought to follow same basic idea and aim. To secure that is the main responsibility for a moderator.

In discussions the moderator can take own initiatives to develop subjects and topics in desirable directions.

In the pool a group moderator can only approve or remove photos from the pool but not take own imitative to run the pool in a certain direction by invitations of images most suitable for maintaining a high group standard

This inconsistency is a major obstacle to maintaining and developing a group according to the group's objectives and rules.

There is much that is illogical and cumbersome in procedures at Flickr. But this nonsense is one of the worst.

Unless this is evident in the development will Flickr be quickly overtaken by other more modern mage-systems.
beachwalker2008 PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by beachwalker2008 (member) 5 years ago
I add my vote in support - though given the time this thread is already open - I don't fathom that flickr will ever act on it. I assume this goes right along with the request for a super-admin; the entire admin/moderator structure should be revised. And maybe, for a change, flickr could ask those who use the features for input, rather than pursuing their usual "we know what's best" philosophy.

As an alternative - why not modify the invites? If you aren't a member of the group you receive an invite for, then you'd be asked to join. If you decline, then the invite for the image will be retracted as well. If you are a member, then by accepting the invite, you would be directed to the group pool for you to peruse and fulfill whatever commitment the group request. This way, the invite could become available to everyone. Seems to require a major revision of flickr's practice - so it won't happen either.

Admins manage the group, the main page, the rules, the awards/medals etc. But mods should be allowed to invite.

PhotosByGil PRO Posted 5 years ago. Edited by PhotosByGil (member) 5 years ago
Our group stopped admins from using the admin invite tool because we couldn't keep up with who'd been banned and the admin invite tool bypasses the built in Flickr check to see if the person has been banned.

So we only use our group's invite icon which puts both admins and mods on the same level and if you use Trailr ( www.assembla.com/wiki/show/trailr with a discussion group at www.flickr.com/groups/869738@N24/ ), it is easier than using the admin invite tool.
Moderators SHOULD be able to invite photos to a group.

I can't believe they're not allowed to.

The gap between Moderator and Admin of a group is too big. Admins have too much power, and Moderators don't have enough.

Maybe there should be a THIRD TIER of control over a group called the ORIGINATOR of the group... or maybe the SUPER ADMIN just like many computer networks have Super User access.

A rogue Admin can decimate a group by deleting members and photos. That's why I won't make anyone else an Admin of my groups.

I think ALL single Admins of groups would love some help finding and adding photos to their groups... but they don't want to turn over full Admin control to people they don't know.

Something really should be done about this, because there are Members of Groups who want to help the Originator of a Group, and many Originators definitely want help, but when you go through the effort to develop a group, you shouldn't be required to relinquish full control just to get some help adding photos.
Patrick Costello PRO 4 years ago
I don't have any additional admins or mods in my group. Regular members can invite photos be added to the group just by leaving a comment (with a link).
Stereotron PRO 4 years ago
Regular members can invite photos be added to the group just by leaving a comment.
But that requires the owner of the invited photo to first join the group and
then go back to their picture and add it. Many are reluctant to do so.
Invite codes - probably with a big twinkling image - are also controversial.
I moderate some topic oriented groups. When I see an image, I want the
user to add it conveniently. That raises the probability of showing up in
my group. And last but not least:
If a photo is already in the maximum number of groups that are allowed
by flickr, only a real flickr invite can override that by allowing
it to be added to another group without removing it from a previous
one. Your self made invitation can't do this.

I Luv 2 [deleted] Posted 4 years ago. Edited by I Luv 2 (member) 4 years ago
I am Admin of several groups, and Moderator of a few. I find the Moderator role very frustrating, as both an Admin and Moderator.

As an Admin, I want to deputize my Moderators to "nominate" photos, and invite them to the approval queue. But I want to retain the final approvals. The Mods would act as scouts, finding what they believe to be suitable photos. I've had far too much trouble with rogue Admins inviting and (with Moderators) approving photos that don't belong in the group. I'm now very selective in handing out Admin responsibilities, because groups are so easily contaminated with inappropriate stuff that doesn't fit the theme.

Honestly, I can't see the point of allowing Moderators to grant final approval if they can't invite photos. Ideally, the Admin should be able to assign Moderators whatever duties they think would help them the most. Right now, Admins can give "Moderators" a different name (how clever). I'd like to make various tasks available, or not, to moderators, at the Admin's discretion.

Right now, Moderators are only allowed to approve photos that have been submitted by members. Oh, I guess they can also delete photos from the pool, too. Plenty of power to screw up a group, but not much ability to help it grow. If there's not an approval queue, there isn't really anything for the Moderator to do, except delete an occasional photo. If I'm doing the approving, I don't want someone else deleting the photos from the group. It's a silly role, in my experience.

What I really want is a group of talent scouts, to send what they see as appropriate photos to the approval page. I'd like to keep track of who nominates what. If I see a "scout" consistently inviting quality work, I'd be inclined to offer them an Admin post. Conversely, if a moderator isn't following the guidelines, and nominates stuff that doesn't fit, I'd give them additional guidance or demote them. In any case, the Admin will likely see many images that they otherwise might not have, but maintain strict quality control.

I'd suggest that the Admin should be able to assign or withhold Moderators' duties, as they see fit for the group. Among the options should be photo approval, photo deletions, photo invites, photo "nominations" (as described above), member promotions (to "moderator" level), and discussion thread closures.

Anybody else like the idea of photo scouts, to invite "nominations"?
Patrick Costello PRO 4 years ago
"As an Admin, I want to deputize my Moderators to "nominate" photos, and invite them to the approval queue."

That's not how the current invite works though. Invited photos go direct to the pool.

Wil C. Fry PRO 4 years ago
the idea of selectable moderator duties

On the face of it, that sounds like a really good idea. Give admins a list of checkboxes, so they can assign (or not assign) various powers to moderators.

But thinking about how it would work in real life... I moderate more than one group. It would be highly likely that the admins of each group wouldn't have given me the same powers in all of them. So every time I head to a group's page to "moderate" it, I'd have to remember: "Okay, in this group, I can just remove images from the pool. But in the other group, I can delete discussion threads or ban members. And in the third group, I can..."
I Luv 2 [deleted] 4 years ago
OK, I don't want Moderators inviting photos into my groups, if I can't review and approve them first. That much is directly on topic for this thread.

I'd be ok with Moderators inviting photos only as far as the approval queue, and leave final approval to the Admin(s).

That could be done several ways. I've suggested a couple in my original post, above. Another possibility is to create a new category, called something like "Photo Scouts" to help find and nominate photos.

If you'd like to discuss the option of having "Photo Scouts" to nominate pictures to a group's approval queue, please contribute the the discussion here: www.flickr.com/groups/flickrideas/discuss/72157629207408247/
