Three days ago Flickr rolled out the new design for all the English based members. It is nothing like finished. Important features are still missing. Here is a list by Tatters:), which lists them all. Just incredible! One can still use the old site by changing to another language, but how long? Most of these are bad, but I miss most of all the autofill that helps in writing tags, especially long ones.
1. Maps on photo page - missing (said they work hard to fix it, but Beta should not be compulsory then)
2. Navigation bar (pages) for groups, search result and other - gone last year - we have just endless loading, and it takes you back after you open a photo.
3. Admin invites - you know what I mean.
4. Notes - they should be on the photo, and not hidden. Not sure we can add a new note...
5. Date photo taken - we cannot see more photos taken that day - no link anymore from photo page.
6. Date photo loaded - gone
7. Link to guest pass from photo page - gone.
8. TAGs - Autofill - gone, - Impossible to add string of tags; for example try tags flower "I love flickr" blue red . What have you got?
9. Click on TAG shows up all flickr photos with that tag - should bring your photos first, as it was before..
10. Share by flickr mail works for one person only now (no multiple recipient address available anymore)
11. Formatting help - gone! (and my favourite Greasemonkey script does not work of course)
12. Link to your flickr account is called "settings" - confusing.
13. White text on black is very hard to eyes (means I am not going to comment on photos anymore).
14. Photos in comment(s) are important - they are too small now and hidden. We asked before - leave the first comment on the top.
15. Entire comments/info area is overloaded and messy
ADDING more after your comments below (thank you)
16. link to the (high res) original, i.e.viewing different photo sizes when the owner has disabled downloading - gone- read more here www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157642614044133/
17. Drop down menu that used to be available from the photographer's buddy icon on the photopage is missing.
as a result -
---The direct link to stats from the photo page - gone,
---Direct email for a private comment - gone... etc.
18. The link to the camera page has been removed - replaced with drop-down option on the right. - it means You cannot click on the camera name and go to view other pictures taken with the camera. Camara icons are laughable
19. Seeing SETs when the photo has been added to 9 groups or more - gone
20. Fave date - gone. It is impossible to see when someone faved a photo.
21 Tool navigation bar above the photo - gone.
22. Shift-Enter to add new line in comment? it is something 30 years back, like using Unix.
23. COLLECTIONS are buried forever.
March 28- ADDING more, following your comments below and other topics
24. Info: photo is public, friend or family? - no longer can tell - gone.
25. Replacing photo - icon - gone?: more here
26. Videos html - gone - - more here
27. Round buddy icon change is an obscure, obnoxious change just for change's sake. Keep it square please.
28. Help link on the bottom of photo page - gone - more here
29. Flickr Slideshows Stopped Working on blog websites - it's betray - more here
30. Sharing to Tumblr is completely broke.
Why so huge downgrade? Is there any hope these features come back?
What is achievement with Beta? Fast? But in what direction? Malaysian flight MH370 also was very fast... :( "
8. As i said at the top, I really miss this feature.
5 Dec 2014 Some of these have come back as the system was again changed, the biggest perhaps is that it is black text on white again. any of these I have not checked as I have not used them.
