Default FLICKr

Further to an interesting discussion started around comments on one of "Thomas's Flies" I looked at my private Flickr (non-pro) account and found I have 1104 images on there.
No-one from Fickr has been in touch and I can't see any warning flags, for now I'll keep using it but will post here again if anything changes.

I've got over 7000 photos on there at the moment so will either need to have a good trawl through them all or sign up for a Pro account.

I'm a member of Amazon Prime so I've rather impetuously taken them up on their free storage offer. Maybe I should give that more thought.

I have Prime too but have never looked into using it for photos. I donít used Flickr for storage but do like it as a photo sharing site and reckon it will be worth paying for. When I looked earlier I think it worked out at under £2/month.

I wouldn't dream of keeping the only copy I have of images on-line. I have deleted ~200 images from my Flickr stream to bring it under 1000. It's taken me 7 years of using flickr as my main sharing site to get to what I had, so I'm not a heavy user. Even so I'll hit the buffers again in under a year. I don't see why they don't make the limit something that increments in time for those who are an active part of their community...

I've made a similar reduction on Flickr so now I'll keep it a bit longer. Also backed up to remote HDD and I'm using Amazon though I worry about that.
