The HAF now has a Flickr group!  I have started a flickr group for the forum members to show off their stuff here http://www.flickr.com/groups/handmadeartistsforum/ .  You need to give me your flickr address so that I can send you an invitation to join.  We are setting this pool up so that our flickr feed connects to our facebook page...more exposure people!

I added this to our links directory for the forum which is the tab on the toolbar that says links you can click that or go here http://handmadeartistsforum.com/forum/index.php?action=links;cat=8

We have a flicker section in links with 10 members there so far.

So please also ad your links there!

I requested to join the flicker group, you think you'll let me in?

Everyone else!!!!!  Head over to the flickr site and request an invitation...flickr is giving my a fit on invites but not on accepting invitations.  I email support and they are having some internal fit that should be fixed soon.  in the mean time go here http://www.flickr.com/groups/handmadeartistsforum/ and request and invitation so I can approve our members and fill up the group.

I finally started on my blog again after a very long absence and managed to get a flickr slideshow to work!  http://makinthebestofitcreations.blogspot.com/ at the bottom of the page, only because it is really wide and I don't understand how to resize it so it looked funny on the side of the page.

I grabbed the video feed from our HAF flicker group and put it on the blog, so now the blog has a gallery. Check it out here http://handmadeartistsforum.com/haf-gallery/
Title: Re: Flickr
Post by: MakinTheBest on July 10, 2009, 05:55:26 AM
OK, Andrew & Kim...
Just how do I go about sending over photos from my Flicker acct?  Of course I probably should upload my recent stuff!  But I really appreciate that you tagged my photo.  It's my other hobby!

If you go to your flickr page there is an "Organization" dropdown at the top. Click "all your content" and then a new window will open.  You click the group tag and you can drag and drop your photos into the group.


We are up to 21 members and 61 photos so we are getting a good variety to show off!

Hi Kimberly!
I finally found a chunk of time to explore adding the Flickr feed to the Facebook page. Since I'm not an authorized admin to the Flickr site I can't finish the process of setting this up....so I need your help!  If you go to the FB page and click on the MyFlickr tab (you might have to click on the >> tab to find it, you will get a message that says "Woops! You have not visited the main My Flickr page yet.

Go Visit."  Click on go visit and it should ask you to authorize permission to access the HAF Flickr photostream.

Once that is done I should be able to finish setting this up and moving things around!
Thanks!
Nancy

I just made it really easy and made you an admin of the flickr group so you should now be able to authorize the account.  If this doesn't work, let me know and I will try to do it through fb.
Title: Re: Flickr
Post by: MakinTheBest on July 13, 2009, 06:42:10 AM
I went ahead and authorized the page so you should be able to do your magic with the flickr photos now!

With a bunch of new members I figured I would bump this back up again.  If you are a member of the HAFteam, head over here http://www.flickr.com/groups/handmadeartistsforum/ and request an invitation to join our flickr group.  We are rolling a picture show on a few blogs so your stuff gets another opportunity to shine!
Title: Re: Flickr
Post by: MakinTheBest on January 05, 2010, 01:56:13 PM

Basically you give me your flickr address and I go to your page and invite you via one of your pictures.  You accept and then you can upload photos into the group.

Okay, okay, okay I can't wait, I have to tell her!!

Okay, Larissa, it's not actually a "handshake", but this is what you have to do to be a full fledged HAF Flickr Member, and this goes for everyone:

While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right-hand.

If your right foot is still going in clockwise circles, you're in!  ;)

whew - I guess I was lucky and made it in before the handshake was required - I'd never make it otherwise - heck if I ever got stopped while driving, I'd probably fail the DUI test, and I don't even drink! lo hehehe but then I don't have a car anyway!

Oooh neat! I pushed the "request to join" button on flickr, hope it worked.

Looks like you are in!

On a different subject for all of our members that participate in this group, if anyone notices someone posting pictures that aren't forum members just let us know. We've opened up the group for anyone to join, they just have to say they are members of the forum. We are not heavily moderating this. In fact if some of our HAF flicker group members have a desire to have moderator privileges on the flicker group just let me know.
Thanks

Now I'll work on adding more photos and figuring out how to communicate with others on Flickr.

looks like the flickr thing has been sort of neglected - not many new things on ther.
I added 2 photos that I have in the HAF shop -

I think it would be great if we could get this active again. so what would  a moderator for the flickr group need to do????

I ask even tho I am  trying to NOT bite off more than I can chew! and I can't chew a whole lot right now - literally - hehe

Sorry it has taken us a while to answer. We could give you permissions as a moderator. Depending on how a group is set up a moderator sometimes approves pics or requests for membership, I don't think we have any of those restictions on the group though. So other things that group mods can do I believe is as they stroll around flicker you can invite people to join the group. This may be difficult as it is supposed to be forum members. So you would almost have to invite them to the forum as well. There probably are other possibilities of things we could do. Any flicker experts out there want to chime in?

Is it okay for me to share on the flickr group even if I've been quiet over here for a long time? I haven't forgotten IBH, but have a lot of things to juggle. This looks like a good tool though - does it bring in views?


Also, I have a question about the flickr group - Flickr says in its rule that you can't use your page just to sell - is there a different rule for groups that form? They apparently have allowed this group to continue for a long time, so hopefully it's really okay. Thanks.

I got a message from Flickr yesterday warning me I couldn't put links to my shops on my pictures. Has anyone else gotten a message like that? If I can't have people linking back to where my stuff is for sale, what point is there in having the account?

I deleted it yesterday out of frustration, but now I'm not so sure it was a good idea. How does everyone else get around the commercial restrictions?

Where did you put the link - on the photo itself?


I am wondering how they happened to even notice.

Most times I post to Flickr through my Instagram account, so the link is the description I use for Instagram. I did add some links directly to the items in the comments section, so that may be what tipped them off.

I really don't want to give up the account...I think I'll just figure out how to get around the restrictions.
