Please fix EQUIRECTANGULAR and 360 photos.

John C. Chu says:

This has been an ongoing years - long issue.

Please fix address:

1) The low resolution of 360 photos displayed on Flickr

2) Fix the zenith and nadir pinching.

3) 360 viewing on the Flickr App on mobile.

Google Street View, Roundme and Kuula and countless Wordpress sites have figured this out...

Can Flickr, please, PLEASE, consider fixing this issue?

Request: a little more love for the 360 viewer

All 360 Images on Flickr have Cat sphincter Nadirs

I have provided your feedback to our Product Team.

Thanks!

Speaking of which.. is there a thread of a road map on what Flickr is doing right now?

What's their priorities? Or schedule of timeline of these fixes/improvements? Nothing ever seems to move very quickly. (Easy to say as a user.. but I remember how long it took Flickr just to migrate the Yahoo logins).

No software company would ever publicize this information apart from occasional, informal hints about individual initiatives.

It would help users to know whether or not thing are going to be fixed.

If it's going to another 5-10 years, then users can make decisions wisely come renewal time.

Managing expectations and good communication is KEY for a paid site like this.

No response, or canned generic answers doesn't make users feel good.

This isn't Apple creating the next iPhone in terms of secrecy. :)

Even if all of what you say is true -- and I'm not denying any of it -- what I said is still true, too.

Flickr has millions of users. (And furthermore, based on the history of the Help Forum, the users seem to be among the whiniest, shoutiest, and most self-entitled users of any software on the planet.) They are just never going say something like "Hey guess what everybody! We're going to have feature X available by September!"

Please refer to a company that makes a detailed timeline and the content of all their plans, projects and priorities public, and with that tells it also to their competitors.
