GROUPS I JOINED AND LEFT
Over time I joined a lot of groups, way too many.
Recently I started sweeping them and leave hijacked groups (admins gone and dumpers took over) and groups with the 30/60 group limit.
Most of the 30/60 limit groups are also left without administration, and that's the main reason why that rule remains in place. Flickr introduced this to all groups and as only the admins of the groups can change this, those abandoned by their admins will remain 30/60 restricted forever.
However some admins keep their groups voluntarily restricted for whatever misguided reason. I manage a lot of groups, so I'm well placed to know it's possible to run groups, even specialist groups without that stupid rule.
I always mail the admin to ask them if they're willing to remove that restriction. If not, that's their choice, I will not hold it against them, but its byebye for me.
PLEASE NO SELF-PROMOTING COMMENTS on my pictures
I will block you, so don't take it personal. I This will happen to all who place comments for the sole purpose of promoting their facebook or other personal pages
PLEASE NO INVITES to MANDATORY COMMENTING GROUPS
Please don't invite me to mandatory comment groups I'm not a member of. I am already a member of a lot of groups, so I'm choosing my groups carefully and on my terms only.
I've tried commenting groups to please some of my contacts, but it takes too much time.
If an admin invites me to a commenting group I will click OK add it, and I will NOT comment, even with a SWEEPER ACTIVE MESSAGE.
Most of the time I don't even read the posting terms, because I'm too busy. I just click the ADD IT button.
EXPLORE CRAP and the UNINTERESTINGNESS of the MAGIC DONKEY
The Explore page is based on a random algorithm, and like all algorithms this can be manipulated, And I'm not interested in playing that game.
USE OF MY PICTURES
So all my pictures can be used on websites, as long as they're properly credited and link back to my original photo. There's no need to ask for my permission..
Same goes for use on leaflets, templates, magazines etc... . A credit to my name is required.
I think that's the least you can do for the free use of my pictures.
As I recently discovered some people are without shame, and just steal other people's pictures passing them off as their own, I disallowed downloading of the original files.
