Flickr Groopy

groopy.mybluemix.net/#/

This has created various groups in my list of groups of groups that don't even exist.

They only show up when adding an image to a group but not in the page of group memberships.

e.g.

i.imgur.com/1wvKwdc.jpg

Any suggestions to get rid of these.....??

1. Look in that app for settings that turn on/off its automatic addition of these groups to your list

or better yet, for an app that does something that obnoxious:

2. Stop using (and delete) the app

P.S. You should be able to disable the app from here:

Thanks for your reply but unfortunately, removing the site from my permissions has made NO difference.

Wouldn’t it take a while before you notice the difference?
And whatever it has already done would not automatically be undone, would it?

I was thinking if the groups are not on his "real" groups list, then they must be being added to the add-to-group dialog dynamically by the app. In that case, if the app is gone, you'd think the change would be effective immediately.

So there must be something else going on, somewhere.

Any possibility that there is some other Flickr app at play?

Looking further, all 4 of the groups that you displayed in your screen shot are also present on the list of 526 groups of which you are a member. It appears that you are actually a member of these groups.

So am I misunderstanding what your problem is?

All gone now by the looks.

While the app had permissions, not one of the groups showed up in my list nor were they searchable. You were correct - given time it now appears to be rectified.

Thank you for your time and patience.
