I administer some groups here in the aid of helping new photographers learn. Groups are invaluable to this effort. However, there are two group behaviours that I find get in the way of running the group smoothly.
First, when removing a member from the group, the option to remove that members contact has never, ever worked for me. Not once. Since I regularly use groups and cycle through new students, removing the old ones - this becomes a constant hassle to remove each photo individually. I feel like I ask if I am doing something wrong, but it sure seems straightforward. Is this an issue for anyone else?
Secondly, as I teach classes over Zoom, we often use groups for students work and when sharing out flickr over Zoom, things are very, very slow. I can't really blame Flickr for this. However, it seems very hit and miss whether the EXIF data will actually appear on a photo. The viewing options are all correct, and a refresh of the page fixes it. But since the refresh is slow and painful, it is quite wasteful of time and ruins the flow of the discussion.
Can anyone offer any tips for this, how to up the chance of EXIF data showing up on the first try for viewing an image?
