@kevinmarks I did not realize the scenario shared with others or made public and used under Creative Commons terms. I think Flickr needs to be smarter while deleting older photos. A generic delete all images older than latest 1000 ones will be disastrous.

@amit @kevinmarks I hope they find a reasonable compromise.

@jack I agree. Initially I thought may be 1000 latest photos is good enough. But I guess I was wrong - the usage of those old photos matters more. There is a danger of an archive being lost. cc @kevinmarks

@kevinmarks I think Flickr will listen to feedback on this. I believe their assumption based on their blog post was that free users would actively participate in whittling down to 1,000 photos (if the user cared at all). I will have to delete about 500 photos if I don’t go pro. I’ll want to decide which to delete. I’ll tend to favor keeping the ones with a lot of comments. Maybe Flickr could offer a couple of automated strategies people could pick with a single click for the transition.

@ronguest it took them two days to send me my archive - trying to decide to now publish them to blottings.philpin.com OR john.philpin.com and with that done my flickr will be deleted.
