About page today, Mexican / Latin dishes as buddy icons... ?

MabelAmber***Pluto5339***MysteryGuest says:

As per the topic title.

Can anyone enlighten me about Flickr's "About" page?

www.flickr.com/about

Why all the Mexican / Latin food, and the "senor", "senorita" thing? Obvioulsy I am missing something, but what....

PS - I did the homework but my searches yielded nothing which made sense.

Is it also some gender fluidity day? In many cases the genders there seem wrong.

It's the same change on the same page we are talking about. At the same time as the staff became senor/senorita there is gender mismatch, too.

I wonder if staff took precautions so no one can change their name to one of theirs...

I love that the images are just from random(?) people's photostreams (and go there).

I did notice that earlier. Spot checking now, they all(?) seem to be Creative Commons licensed images.

That answers my question...

Good to know they are no dummies and the changes affect only that page, not anyone’s account, and that with one rename everything can go back to normal.

Happy National Taco Day!

But in all seriousness - the taco celebration was missing some much needed context. We added some text to let people know that it's National Taco Day and also removed the gendered terms.

Actually, historically Flickr has never added any "context" to specific conspicuous differences on the Flickr "About" page, we always need to find out, for instance here:

It looks like a taco? I have always mistaken it for a cherry pancake...

If I worked at Flickr I think today (being not yesterday) I'd be tempted to change my actual buddy icon to a taco.
