Why are favorites in the comments?. With popular photos, it makes it hard to wade through them to see what people actually have to say. Every other line is about favourites and it just ends up making more pages of comments and more pages to click through. Since I can still see everyone's name by clicking on the star button on the left, why do I need to see the names in the actual comments. I'd had to see what happens with something truly popular.

Here's an example with the problem. This photo has 156 favourites.

Even though they are greyed out, the favorite comments make text based comments difficult to read.

remove favs from comments! i like how the comments are neat and i like to read other peoples views on photos and often can discover new people, but since the favs have come in it looks all messy i just dont bother looking at them as much now...

and really who cares who has faved something apart from the one whos photo it is ??
blueyescapt 7 years ago
i agree totally with Relapsing....more, i cant find the way for adding a fave to a friend or a contact, over the pic i can just see "actions" and "share this" but no one gives me the way for adding a fave, why? what's wrong? who can help me?

No idea, I get a nice obvious "Favorite" button as the left-most button in that little toolbar, right next to "Actions".

Before anyone can help you, you'll have to provide your browser type, operating system, and a list of (if any) add-ons that you're running.

(For what it's worth, I see the favorite button in five browsers on two operating systems.)

I'd strongly prefer to remove the favorites from the comment view. I don't care *who* favorites a photo, though I like to see *how many times* it has happened. I *LOVE* being able to read comments about the photo. Sometimes it's really wonderful to hear deeper stories about the photo or the moment, and it's really hard to find those particular comments if you're wading through favorite notifications in addition to everything else.

In fact I'd love to see *only* real comments and not flashy graphics but that's a topic for another post ;)

Personally, I think it's different a comment than a fave, so I don't like faves are mixed with text comments.

Favorites in comments has got to go. The way I have built my flickr page, one must scroll down within each picture to see other views of my dioramas. Now they are seeing favorite stars mixed with my pictures and it's really no good. Not to mention the page takes forever to download.

This is ridiculous.. I'm an admin of a monitored group, which means we need to make sure an image has an invite in order to add to the group. Sometimes I find myself going through 7 or 8 pages before I can determine whether or not it has a proper invite. This never happened before.

I see you Flicker guys are tweaking some things to make the new page more user friendly. I've updated some Greasemonkey user scripts! Great!

I agree that the favs add to more space on a page to scroll thru! Why not just put a star beside the commentor's buddy icon? This would shorten the number of pages per photo !!

Also, I'd love for the comment box to be at the top right under the photo....like other sites have. Or give us the option!
I don't always read all the comments on someone's photo...sometimes I just want to comment myself without having to scroll down to the bottom of a page.! I spend hours on this site..so the less scrolling & clicking the better for injury prevention!

Also please get rid of the "this photo was taken on..." on the upper right and please put the photo title back on top! The actions could be underneath the title or over on the right!

thanks !

listing faves inline with comments destroys the dialog that can occur beneath a pic and is a tremendous and ugly waste of space.

I've been able to ignore them but it is annoying to see them interspersed in the comments.
I don't know about anyone else, but I do not really care if someone else favorited it, and when. I would rather see the discussion.
Mute* PRO 7 years ago
People may not have been interacting with the favs section in the previous design but the dialogue that happens in the comments section is far more important to most people than interacting with people faving images.

I love to explore other people's favourites but I do it by browsing through a friends favourites then through the favourites of someone they had favourited, and so on. There's no need to muddy the comments with favourites.

I imagine the reason click through was low on favourites was because people wanted to be focused on what they were doing, viewing contact's uploads, viewing an image, entering into a dialogue about the image, etc. I think most people would rather not be distracted and have a million ways of discovering new people and images through the site already.

I would be interested to learn what the click through from the "recent activity" page was on favourites. I suspect it was still pretty low even though it is laid out there in much the same way it's laid out in the new design comments section (with addition of being able to ignore them).

I've lost all my favourites stars by taking my entire stream private, but I still hate trying to sort through them to on my contacts' images get to the actual comments.

I have never clicked through the favourites of other users, and plastering throughout the comments section won't change that. What it does for me, instead, is make me click off the photo without reading anything other than what the photographer has written in the title and description.

If I wanted Facebook look-alike, I'd be posting my photos there instead of paying for Flickr.

Obviously Flickr is ignoring this thread. There is only one comment by an administrator or moderator so it looks like they just do not care.

I don't care if others make some of my photos into Favorites. I just don't want to be bothered with the complete process. In the past I have just ignored Favorites.

But that one comment from staff did two important things. (1) It explained staff's reasoning for this change, and (2) said they would revisit the idea.

That can hardly be called "ignoring." Would you rather they just popped in every few hours and copied-and-pasted that comment? ("Here's why we did it, and we're reading your stuff.") Assuming their position is still the same, I don't see why they need to keep repeating it...

My first impression on seeing Faves mixed in Comments was "oh great, they're turning it into Facebook". I think any website that is hitching itself to FB's star is going to be sorely disappointed when FB becomes as relevant as AOL in a year or so.

As far as the officially posted reasoning - maybe if people weren't interacting with the Favorites in the old design, that's because people aren't all that interested. Forcing the feature into comments, using up a tremendous amount of screen real estate to do so is just saying "look at me look at me look at me" and makes the feature seem annoying.

kightp PRO 7 years ago
I like the compromise solution offered by several people: A link at the top (or bottom) of the comments section noting "X people call this a favorite," which those who are interested can click to see who did so. Among other things, it would give Flickr developers some statistics to either bolster or refute their argument that people follow "favorites" as a means of surfing Flickr.

hobbydave nice idea, but why would you remove the group invitations?

hobbydave [deleted] 7 years ago
Groups a photo belongs in are on the right side, under "This photo belongs to". The favs are shown in the right column. There are icons for Views, Comments, Favs, galleries with numbers next to them, and they're clickable. Clicking on views takes you to a stats page, clicking on comments takes you lower on the page, favs takes you to a page where you can view all the people who have faved the photo, and galleries takes you to the list of galleries it belongs in.
JustaBrat [deleted] 7 years ago
hobbydave OK, but that still doesn't tell us where the invites go. What happens to a group invitation? Will it still be viewable somewhere on the page?

Invitations are something that I really want to see.

I have installed the script, and so far I'm loving not seeing the favs all mixed up with the comments, but I do have concerns about the invitations disappearing completely.

For what it's worth, I asked in the Flickr Hacks group for a remedy to this, and someone wrote a script for me.

This removes all references to the faves in the comment section, and puts a row of buddy icons above the comments, showing who's faved my images.

I can confirm that it works in both Chrome and Firefox.

Wil C. Fry PRO 7 years ago
RuthArt said:

While I can't answer that (I'm not staff), I can guess...

In the almost five years I've been on Flickr, they've left much of the site open to alteration by scripts -- in other words, it's almost always been this way (nothing to do with the new photopage preview). For at least four years, I've been using one script or another to enhance Flickr for myself, make it easier to use, or make it prettier to look at.

Sometimes, when they "improve" the site, these improvements actually include some of the functionality of the scripts. This newest improvement did that also (show the map on the photopage, allow inline editing of comments, etc. were all scripts that I used before, so now I don't have to).

Other times, (I'm guessing) they calculate that the amount of people who want a certain functionality is small enough that the script will satisfy them. Or that the script is just as good as anything they could offer...
kitby PRO Posted 7 years ago. Edited by kitby (member) 7 years ago
Someone else already noticed this (I can't seem to find their comment again), but on some photos, all the favorites are now being lumped together into a single line at the beginning of the "Comments and faves" section—that is, they're no longer interleaved with the comments. I'm not sure how many comments and/or favorites a photo needs to have before this happens, but my initial impression is that this is a good compromise between interleaving comments, invites, and faves on photos with relatively little activity (where it's nice and possible to appreciate all that's happened) while not interfering with the flow of comments on photos with a lot of activity.

EDIT: Ah, the aforementioned comment was in the bugs thread.
I really don't care who calls a photo I'm looking at a favorite. It doesn't have to be on the list of people making comments.

They are grouped between comments based on time (so, for example, if there are 3 faves and then 1 comment and then 2 faves and then 2 comments, etc... the faves will be grouped.

I guess if there are no comments, the faves won't be grouped.
orchidgalore PRO 7 years ago
Putting faves in the comment stream is really annoying, for all the reasons that many other folks have already mentioned.

Especially since the new views/comments/faves notification is up on the right side. If I feel like seeing who faved the photo I can click on it, it's right there. Sometimes I do, but usually not.

Expanding on the faves while forcing TAGS -- which are ACTUALLY useful to many many Flickr users -- into a tighter and truncated cloud -- is just plain clueless. Really.

Are the Powers That Be bewildered and disturbed by the way Flickrites actually use faves and tags and suchlike? So much so they cannot let it alone??

Flickr is partly social media, yes, but why can't the social media sites just sit back and LEARN FROM THE USERS instead of continually trying to impose order????!
jakerome PRO 7 years ago
FWIW, on photos with dozens of faves & comments, all the faves seem to be grouped now. But other times they're amongst the comments. Wonder if Flickr is running some A/B testing, tweakering things or have settled on a solution.

I too don't like how the favorite info is separated (count way up at the top, favs down among the comments.) I wonder if Flickr could also add a counter next to each fav "star", so as we scroll through the comments, we can see right there at the point of favs, how many the image has so far.

I HATE how comments and faves are listed together now.

As has been said before, the actual comments risk being lost in the shuffle, it's more to scroll through and also? Why does everyone else need to know who favorited something? I don't think anyone besides the person that uploaded the photo (in a drop down option, maybe?) needs to know that, I think.

On other people's pages, I sometimes check. But even now, I don't do it from the faves in comments area. (In the past, I checked from the right column link; now I do it from the script I mentioned above).

// Denise //: I HATE how comments and faves are listed together now.

I did too. So I bitched, and moaned, and nothing happened. Staff is going to do it their way whether you like it or not.

So I found a scripting solution that removes the FAVs from the comment stream, restores the buddy icons back to original size, and puts the FAVs under the photo as series of buddy icons. Looks great.
