[Resolved] Unable to Remove a Group

Stuart Smith_ says:

Using the directions provided i.e.

* remove all members from group leaving only myself

I cannot remove myself or "Leave Group" - nothing happens.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Do you have to remove all the thousands of photos from the group first?

Viejito:

No, but you have to remove every member.
Once you're the only one left you should be able to leave the group.
Once you leave, the group is deleted as you were the last member.
I have done so in the past.

That is strange. I have done this before and it worked.

Maybe it takes a while for Flickr to remove all those other memberships from every server... I would just wait. No urgency.

We have recently received reports from other members that they are not able to leave groups also, I will be reaching out to you directly to see if I can help out.

We've released a fix for this & it looks like we should be back in action here!

We'll keep this thread open for a bit to see if there are any additional reports.

I'm confused about the problem. When I open a group, there's the "joined" box. Clicking it provides a drop down with a "leave group" option. I click it and appear to have left the group.
Is this what this is about?

I'm doing more of this, trying to figure out which groups have the most punch for me.

This is about leaving a group of which you are the only member, thus closing the group and removing it from the group lists of all the photos that were still in it.
