20120724 EXPLORED # 39 - Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. - IMG_1019 -
This image had over 125 faves as on 6th October 2013. Then in a second the fave counter went back to ZERO - along with about 1700 images on my photo stream - just like that - no warning and no recourse :o(
Surely Flickr can have software which will warn you if you are doing something that will result in such catastrophe. I was just changing the privacy settings of some images when this happened. How come if we, so much as, want to delete a set, a warning pops up (although that action does nothing irretrievably disastrous as this did) but no warning for a click that removes all the faves from all your images, removes them from Explore (about 70 of mine got removed from Explore with this one silly action), removes them from any challenges/contests you may be participating in, and God alone knows what else !!
For me some Images are just meant to be framed in the panoramic format even if not originally taken with that in mind. For example . . .
