We've created a Report Abuse form for you to give us feedback if you come across something or someone on Flickr that is causing you concern.
There's also a link to this form on the footer of every page. If you use that link, the form can send us the page you were looking at when you clicked. This is handy.
I have a great idea for a feature! How can I suggest it?
The best place to start is probably in the FlickrIdeas forum. Apart from putting your ideas out there for everyone to discuss, Flickr Admins patrol all the forums regularly, so you will be heard!
What considerations have been given to copyright?
We offer the ability for you to associate a Creative Commons licence with one or all of your photos. You can find out more on this page.
If you see your work in someone else's photostream, please submit a Notice of Infringement to the Yahoo! Copyright Team. Information on how to do this correctly is here, and there's a link in the footer.
Can I have HTML in my posts on the Flickr website?
Because there are pesky people out there who like doing pesky things to whatever they can get their hands on, we've made a few limits to the sort of HTML code you can post in fields like your description, or a person's testimonial. You can't post HTML in Flickr Mail, or the interests, favorite books or favorite movies fields on your profile.
Even so, we encourage you to make your stuff look pretty, so if it's within the guidelines below, go for it!
Here's the list:
'tag' => 'attribute' (allowed)
'a' => 'href', 'target'
'b' => None
'blockquote' => None
'em' => None
'i' => None
'img' => 'src', 'width', 'height', 'alt', 'title'
'strong' => None
'u' => None
What are the system requirements?
Flickrを利用するのに、PCであるかMacであるかLinuxであるかなどのシステム要件はありませんが、FirefoxやMozillaなどMozillaベースの最新バージョンのブラウザをおすすめします。Macの場合は、AppleのSafariブラウザの最新バージョンもご利用いただけます。PCの場合は、Microsoft Internet Explorer 6（又はそれ以降のバージョン）でも正常動作します。
Although there are no system requirements to run Flickr, for PCs, Macs or Linux, we recommend any recent version of a Mozilla-based browser, including Firefox and Mozilla. On a Mac you can also use the most recent version of Apple's Safari browser. On a PC, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 (or greater) will also work well.
To get the most out of Flickr, you'll want to have the latest version of Macromedia's Flash plugin installed.
We do recommend that you use a reasonably powerful computer, and a fast Internet connection, because that will make it more fun.
Note: Flickr does not currently support the Mac IE browser.
The site is acting weird! Things aren't saving... photos are missing... what gives??
A basic explanation is that we have lots of databases running Flickr, and if an individual machine gets overwhelmed, updates can fall behind. These are the main symptoms of weirdness:
"This photo is unavailable"
Tags you've just entered not coming up
Comments you've just made not coming up
Editing a comment gives a "bad link" page instead of the error
Trouble confirming your email address
Posts to groups not working
Changing title/description on your photos
Even though it's confusing, the updates you are making around the place do work (mostly sub-second actually), it's just that there's a short delay in them showing up.
Unfortunately, this particular problem is compounded when people see that their comment hasn't come up, and try to post it again, and then again... so, if you see this sort of behavior happening, the best advice we can give is just to leave it for a while and then come back. There's no need to post things again - your data has made it through, even though it doesn't look that way.
We're continually working to make Flickr as stable as we can. We hate it when this problem pops up... probably more than you!
If you aren't sure whether cookies are enabled or not, you can check using these instructions.
If you have cookies enabled but for some reason still can’t get into Flickr, try using a different browser. For example, if you are using Internet Explorer, try using Firefox. Another thing that may work is to close down your browser session and open a new one. Still can't access the site? Please contact us.
I'm an AOL user having trouble viewing photos. What's going on?
AOL 9.0 uses the AOL TopSpeed technology to speed up browsing. Under the AOL Keyword: 'Browser Settings', there is a section called 'Web Graphics'. For Flickr to display properly, the 'Never compress graphics' option must be selected, which is not the default option. Close AOL and log on again.
