Cookies consent banner!

FRED1963 says:

Since joining in 2006 in the UK I've shared Albums directly or on social media but since this year a number of people have rightly complained about the very off putting Cookies consent banner when they view the Albums/Collections etc. I've seen the comments on previous posts here and tend to agree that it doesn't help to promote the image of Flickr in having to overcome what is a confusing page before viewing pictures. It's accepted that it is a requirement of national laws to do this but other websites have made it a much more simple process to either "Accept" or "Manage", if they so wish.

I hope Flickr staff take on this observation proactively as not merely a criticism but a reflection from others outside the direct Flickr community who I would like to share pictures with and would be more positive to others about it. I hope there is another solution as I have to explain to others the current process.

Apologies for a second post so soon as circumstances haven't allowed me to raise this sooner.

Totally agree. Other sites have found much better ways to handle this.

It's VERY problematic, and it's only going one way: To be worse... Also on Google, I have to scroll down, and accept all. The same, is possible on Flickr: Simply scroll down the banner, and accept it all instead of wasting time.

Or, install "I don't care about cookies-ad on. That works on Google Chrome. Don't know, if it will work on other browsers, like Firefox, on Linux...
