OK, Flickr was started in 2004 and has been part of Yahoo since 2005 ... is that better ?

It was originally called Ludicorp which was an anagram of Lucid Pro before becoming Flickr

Just got this message on flickr..... Has anyone heard of this lot and is it a scam ?..



Hi John McKnight,

You take beautiful, authentic photos and I'd love to add some of your Flickr photos to CrowdMedia's collection in a profile made just for you, with your copyright and your attribution.

CrowdMedia is a new place where thousands of photographers like you reveal how they see our world and get their photos discovered by publishers.

To help you get more visibility, we might push some of your photos to editorial publishers (no commercial use).
If they select your photo, they pay a fee and we share half the revenue with you through Paypal. There is no work for you, we take care of everything.

You automatically get a link back to your Flickr with your CrowdMedia profile. And you can add a link to your personal website as well in your CrowdMedia profile.

It is always free for photographers. There is no obligation. You can opt-out when you want in 2 clicks.

If you want to try, all you have to do is answer Yes and I will send your photos’ link in crowdmedia.co when it is done.

Thanks,

Martin

The website is legit mate... never heard of anyone getting coins from them though. It may well work for you you never know.

I  received this on flickr mail.

Hello Ben, your images are great.

Would you be interested in selling some of your pictures for my photography site? I can offer a regular cooperation, I usually offer $60-$70 per picture

If interested, please send me a message to ( his e-mail address) as I'm not logging in to Flickr often.

I then sent this reply

I thank you for your interest on my Flickr account regarding the possible purchase of photographs, all  images must be cleared individually before use by author.
The price must be agreed beforehand and any money transfers paid through my Paypal account.
Kind regards,
Ben Allison.

Never did hear from them again    I think it's a scam for bank details mate

Hi Guys,

Seems there is a wee issue just now in the BBCode options of Flickr.
This is causing little issues with the layout of the page. Below i have
included a quick wee graphic to help things along and keep the page
justification intact.

In the first image all the highlighted argument needs to be on another
line, So if you put your cursor between the url][url and hit enter this
will solve the coding issues and give you a similar layout as image two.
You could also just delete all of the text highlighted as the photo still
carries the Flickr page redirect as laid out in their community rules.

Cheers, Cybs

Just making this thread easier to find after a major update to flickr through the night.
Let the moans begin  

Personally I love the new design and layout.

It really doesn't bother me but it does look a bit bare around the edges...

They updated the app too.... the last update added in a brutal amount of adverts but this one has removed them again (for now)
