[Acknowledged by Flickr Staff] Will the unresolved issue with searching for tagged images ever be resolved???

Hockey.Lover says:

The post from two months ago for searching tags is now closed and never resolved. STILL having trouble searching my tags. Will anyone ever fix it? I rely heavily on searching my tagged photos and it wastes so much damn time having to refresh my browser. My comment from the previously (now closed) thread about this issue......

In addition to the problem of... "Oops! There are no matches for 'XXX' in this user's photos. Please try broadening your search". I also have the problem of not being to search my own tags exclusively. When I click on one of my tags on my photo, it comes up with everyone else's photos and may or may not include mine. I do not care about other peoples' photos when I am searching my own tags. It is beyond frustrating.

I spent a lot of time tagging my photos for the purpose of being able to search them and I do it every day. These problems render my tags pretty much useless.

Will this ever be resolved???
