*******IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE: FLICKER!!********
« on: April 21, 2018, 07:04:17 pm »
Just got an email from flicker they are being bought out Here is the email

We’re excited to announce that Flickr has agreed to be acquired by SmugMug, the photography platform dedicated to visual storytellers.
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account. You will still access Flickr with your current login credentials and you will have the same Flickr experience as you do now. We will continue to work to make your Flickr experience even better.

We think you are going to love Flickr under SmugMug ownership, but you can choose to not have your Flickr account and data transferred to SmugMug until May 25, 2018. If you want to keep your Flickr account and data from being transferred, you must go to your Flickr account to download the photos and videos you want to keep, then delete your account from your Account Settings by May 25, 2018.

If you do not delete your account by May 25, 2018, your Flickr account and data will transfer to SmugMug and will be governed by SmugMug’s Terms and Privacy Policy.

Read more detailed FAQs about this transition on the Flickr Blog.

We’re happy that Flickr is your home for photography and we look forward to the next chapter in our adventure together as we join the SmugMug family.

Thanks,
The Flickr Team

Here is a wiki link to information about smugmug
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SmugMug

This part concerns me. - how long before Flicker becomes a paid model Also - make sure your photos are watermarked before uploading.

SmugMug is a paid photo-sharing website and image hosting service which allows users to upload both HD photos and videos to their SmugMug sites. Launched in 2002,[2] the company offers a toolset which facilitates the selling of digital and print media for amateur and professional photographers.[3] It also owns Flickr.[4]

You know, I think one of the reasons that forums are dying off and Facebook is taking over is because of the ease at which you can post pics on Facebook and how difficult it is to post on the forum.  I remember when forums were filled with raggie pics. It was wonderful.  Now I get most of them through Facebook in a group of Ragdoll Cat people from a UK forum I was on years ago. The forum is gone, but we all found each other on facebook.  I miss the good ole forum days (but I won't go back to the other one).

I received the same email and the first thought I had was I HOPE that doesn't mean they're going to start charging us to use their service!
