Sorry but felt I had to start a moaning thread to get some things off my chest about flickr. I hate notes, I hate them so badly I want to kill their inventor. Notes would be great if you could click a button that said "see notes" but no, that's too easy. Instead we have to have notes that pop up on a whim and stay on the photo forever so you can't even see a photo with lots of notes. It really annoys me too when you see a more "fruity" shot and some imbecile feels it necessary to put a note on the more intimate parts of the body simply with "nice". GET A LIFE. Now on to the second annoying thing, gushing fans. These people actually compete to be the first to comment on a photo and would praise the shot equally if it were one of mine as long as it was in the name of their favourite photographer. "You are so great" "I love you" "Amazing" are just a few of the oft repeated phrases. For examples, look here. Another thing that's slightly annoying is the "interestingness" feature. Sure some of the shots are great but some of the shots that have the gushers and note makers coming in droves are very similar to some shots that have none, why? A beautifully composed photo full of colour and a great subject could get no views but post a picture of a lego man with a stick and it's like the best shot ever. Anyway, rant over and if anyone would like to discuss these irritating nuances then please let the debate begin.
