Yesterday I received this from Flickr:
Hi Aleksey Gureiev, You have 197 photos stored on Flickr. Once you hit 200, you’ll need to upgrade to a Flickr Pro account or you’ll only be able to see your most recent 200 photos. Nothing will be deleted, and if you upgrade, you’ll have unlimited space for all your things. Perhaps you’d like to purchase a Flickr pro account? Its unlimited and you get video and stats too! You’ll even get 3 months free for purchasing before 30 September 2008!
Quite a surprise isn’t it? It’s a dishonest one. I started working with Flickr when there was only a limitation on the number of named sets and the monthly upload volume, and published links to my pictures in many places (forums, sites). Now there are two choices – upgrade or leave. Which one do you think I will choose? There are too many places on the internet including my own site where I can have a gallery of images to stick to their sick greediness.
I’m working on the personal gallery right now…
