Gone to 23

    Newer Older

    Quite disappointed with flickr for the last year or so, this is the last photo I am uploading. I am leaving for 23
    As of today, I'll be uploading my photos at http://www.23hq.com/claudecf
    My flickr photos will be online till July and then only the last 300 will surface. Such will be their fate once I stop paying for my pro account.
    Why go? I feel that flickr has become too commercial, too impersonal, with probably too many accounts and too much Yahoo!
    My most recent disappointment is here but there have been others, like my pet peeve here
    23 is far from being perfect, but unlike here, the devs are still listening to their users.

    Rantz, cobalt123, ReniGallagher, and 1 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      It saddens me to see my very long term contacts leaving Flickr (although nothing lasts forever!) ... but I'll be keeping up with you at 23, that's for sure!

      That's a real shame. I too haven't commented much but have always enjoyed your stuff, particularly recently. Will be sad to see you go.

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Welcome back. You've managed without flickr for nearly a year

    17. Claudecf 41 months ago | reply

      I haven't paid fro a pro account, and still don't know if I will...
      And I have so many photos on my hard disk that it's rather discouraging

      flickr allowing me to upload 51 photos for free, I am not ready to join again. I am finished for the month

    19. mag3737 41 months ago | reply

      gosh, 51? that's almost inconceivably small!

      From the flickr FAQ:
      When you have a free Flickr account, you can upload 2 videos and 300MB worth of photos each calendar month.

      I guess that's why free account users resize their photos.
