Over 58,000 pictures in the Readers Flickr Pool
We have a new milestone in the Readers Flickr Pool. Over 58,000 pictures submitted by photographers like you. Thanks to a new Flickr feature, there is now a nice Flickr Members page [you must be logged on to a Yahoo account that has an associated Flickr account in order to see these] showing square thumbnails of all the members participating in the flickr pool. This is a never-ending scroll page, so you keep pressing "Show more members" at the bottom to see them all. According to that page, photographer Mike Gavin was the first to boldly join this Flickr Pool when it started!
Typically we feature the milestone picture, picture #58,000, but as of the time of writing, Flickr has disabled (or I cannot find) the standard "Views" that allowed for the counting in square boxes. Now there is only one view of the pool, with the pictures auto-sized automatically. Another feature dropped to create space for the Yahoo toolbar at the top of the Flickr page?
But being noisy+crafty, we found a way to do the math. If you are logged on as a Group administrator and press the "square" button next to the Permalink button, it shows the pictures in easy-count thumbnail square formation. This feature is intended so you can select a "Cover Photo" for the Group, but as a side-effect, it shows the pictures in square thumbnail formation. So with this...
The Readers Flickr Pool is a place where photographers of all experience levels and camera types share their pictures. Everyone is welcome to join and submit up to five pictures per day. You can share your experimental pictures, your masterpieces, your latest pictures, your cat pictures, your outtakes, you decide! This is not an 18+ group, so please do not submit adult-themed pictures.
Recent additions to the flickr pool are featured on the front page (and index pages) of this blog. We do not store the pictures on this blog or elsewhere - they are displayed using standard flickr widgets provided by flickr (the flickr badge), and maintained by flickr. You can add or remove your pictures at any time by adding them or removing them from the flickr pool and you can also join/leave the Flickr Pool at any time and for any reason.
