Flickr deletes account ... no backup available

betwixt and between
:eek: Kevin!

Fortunately, I've been quite happy with Flickr and not had any problems at all. I did, however, just explain to a friend (and she is a Luddite) that I did not think it wise to rely on any site such as Flickr as one's backup, for a variety of reasons.

I feel for the person/s who lost their photos. If anything this makes me realize how I must clean house in my Lightroom catalogue and create collections!!!

Kevin, if you wouldn't mind assigning one of your minions to keep tabs on this, I'd appreciate it. Seriously, I hadn't realized the big shake ups going on due to the Yahoo situation.

I have some photos on Flickr that I haven't backed up.

No, wait.

Some photos are of the moment and not ones I care about. They're up for historic reasons only. I no longer have a backup for this one. I have other photos from that trip, but that one is one I put up to go with a blog post.
