mroth PRO 3:47am, 11 April 2008
[I work here.]

While you have not yet reached your goal of 20K members, we at FlickrHQ have heard of your noble efforts and seek to answer your cries for justice.

Save the date: Wednesday, April 16th, 11:00am at Bob's Donuts in San Francisco @ 1621 Polk Street . I will purchase one (1) free donut for every We Demand Donuts group member who shows up.* (*While supplies last.)

UPDATE: If you plan on attending, please RSVP on the Upcoming event so I can get a sense of how many people to expect.

This is not a joke.

Let glazed and jelly-filled freedom ring!

(I sincerely apologize for those members who are not local to the SF Bay Area, but the combination of a greasy donut and a postal envelope is a very sad thing indeed, and would be an affront to Donutkind.)

[Added by jakerome: Check to see if there's a Day of the Donut meet-up in your area, or volunteer to organize one, over here. And if you can't make it to any meet-ups, wherever you are please enjoy a donut and post the photos & videos, flickr.com/photos/mireille/2404970871/ ]

SF Lights [deleted] Posted 10 years ago. Edited by SF Lights (member) 10 years ago
I agree. Having free donuts only in SF doesn't seem fair, the rest of us flickrites deserve our own free donuts!

Yeah what the hell, where's the donuts for the people who can't go there? I shouldn't be talking with my pro account extension, but I can't be greedy and let the rest of the group not get donuts!

I did not in any way shape or form get a pro account extension.

Performing Ourselves: Flickr as a Technology of Memory, Communication, and Expression

SFLights, he does work at flickr. I even talked to him about video on flickr at a Yahoo brainjam talk about flickr last November.

Though we'll have to see if he can give us dispensation to have a video clip longer than 90 seconds since it will take longer than that for him to buy us all donuts (and perhaps it can be webcast as well to make everyone who can't make it hungry).

Hooray for donuts! Our plea has been heard! I will do my best to attend, but if I can't make it, I'll be sure to send a representative to collect my donut!

Keep inviting your friends to the group folks! It will make this protest even more successful!
Michael - B [deleted] 10 years ago
Fletcher! You MUST promise me to eat a donut for me then, too. Are you going to promise me that? I am sure if you tell them you're eating the second one for me they will give you two. Please?

(By the way, I will then forever think you're really really crazy for driving five hours one way just to eat a donut, but hey! It would be fun!) :-)

let's see, I get off work at 2:30, that means I hit the Morgan Hill traffic @ 5ish, it should only take 3 hours to get to SF from there, so 8 pm, looks like it's prolly gonna be too late to catch a donut, hmmm, if I skip work, and leave a 4 am then I . . . oh crap, my lovely (and pregnant) wife just walked in and said "No."

Such is the way of the world

I demand My donut be mailed!
