    Logged into my Flickr this evening only to discover its gone all fancy continental on me....my Flickr account has turned ITALIAN !!! ....yep, everything and I mean everything is now in Italian and I have no idea where to navigate to change it back, made ever worse by this new layout Yahoo sprung on us.

    How this happened I have no clue.

    I assume somewhere in settings or preferences or something of the like there is a way to 'set language'....any Italian speakers here who could check it out and tell me what words, menus, button locations etc to click ?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Maybe flickr decided to make you Italian? They seem to like unsolicited changes... ;o)

    -> Language selection should be along the very bottom of any page.

    They need to get rid of/or limit this non-stop scrolling. I hit the language thing once the other day on my phone because I was quickly trying to scroll to the bottom of the page but it just kept reloading. However it kind of pauses at the bottom of the page for a second while it loads more pictures, I think I hit it accidentally at this time.

    Definitely a couple usability quirks with the new layout.

    Yes, removing the "infinity scroll" (Tumblr style) would solve a multitude of loading issues with the site. I don't use Tumblr for the same reason.
