Hi, VKN. This is just to inform you that when you click on certain images posted here, you are taken to a private Flickr page, which doesn't show the magnified image. The first few entries are like that. Can something be done to rectify that? Thanks.

Hello VKN,

I was trying to read some of the entries, didn't know that you have attached the code to bloggers post at VCC entry code.

I think it would be more helpful, if you'd attach the code on the photo also, so when people click on the photo, instead of going to flickr, they can go to the bloggers entry page, read about it, see the photo also and vote.

You are doing great job hosting!
