My dad changed my url...It is true. and It's a mystery.

sisyphusjones says:

When I was visiting my parents I must have left my flickr account signed-in because somehow my father has managed to change my url to his. He doesn't know how he did it. It was www.flickr.com/sisyphusjones and now it's www.flickr.com/jmfchelsea

Everyone says it isn't possible. I'm afraid it is. My dad has no idea how he did it.

But the photos there - the remodelling photos - are all yours? Have you done the Help by Email route?

Are you sure you'd set your URL before, and not just your screen name? The personal URLs can only be set once.

Oh, by the way: Help by Email. Contact staff and let them know the issue - however, I'm not sure there's anything that can be done.

Flickr is an IT system. Everything can be done in an IT system, it just depends on the workload involved :)

Azchael I don't think FlyButtafly was suggesting it was impossible, only that the policy on it is very clear. This is one of the areas where I've never known the staff to make an exception.

You must have still been with a numeric URL when your father had changed your account URL to one that is easier to read, sisyphusjones. I have to be in agreement with FlyButtafly. Your original account, when I checked, said it was a bad link, which means it doesn't exist anymore. And I even looked at the remodelling photos of your house you posted and they look great.
