Getting Mad on Flickr

by rewerb / March 2, 2006 9:21 PM PST

After i PMed Geekinator, who was the one with 10 posts, about having too many posts he no longer accepted my PMs, so i couldn't reply to his reply. My message:

"You have ten pages of pictures from the Portable Media Expo, that don't belong in the bol pool. You should only post a few of the best (read: 3-4)and have the rest here in you photostream. You clog up the BOL flickr, making it difficult to see the pictures and the photoshop contest. Please remove most or all of you pictures from the bol pool."

His Reply:

"There are no rules for what you can and cannot post to the pool and almost all of my posted pictures are technology or podcast related. Not only that, but none of my pictures are tagged with bol contest, and finding the pics for the bol contest should be a no brainer if you tag your photos correctly, which is the whole point of having tags.

When you become the administrator of the pool, you can remove my pictures. The current administrator of the pool actually added me as a contact after I added the photos."

I just thought this was kinda rude and that he should have let me reply to him, not banned me. Maybe he could clarify in this forum.

I'd send the admin a message, if it isn't Veronica or someone from BOL, it is technically their group, they can do what they want. If they want 10 pages of his pics, guess we have to live with that.

Guess I could add in a few pics, but no worries, they aren't 500 of some tech show.

It is not the end of the world even though it is pretty annoying.

My Pictures Aren't There

I removed the pictures that you requested the same day you requested and right now none of my pictures are on the Flickr BOL pool.

I am completely 100% not interested in continuing this discussion anywhere, so please leave me alone.

I'll think about maybe adding some photos to the BOL flickr pool at a later date, and I'll unblock you from interacting with them at that time.

You have 1 post on BOL, and it's the one I'm responding to. It seems like perhaps you are the one continuing to pursue this?

Don't know. Guess it's a manners thing. You can't force people to have them; but gosh it would be nice if they did.

I've already talked with him. In the future, please let me know before you contact someone in regards to the forums or the Flickr group. It makes things a little easier to moderate that way.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
