I have received a lot of interesting commentary, and support from the bone I had to pick with flickr about a new pro account being designated not public due to the imagery being all snapshots taken in Second Life. The response I did not get, sadly, was from Ana at email@example.com whom I had last asked an appeal.
Most interesting, and useful as ammo, was the comment from Tao, who actually shared a smoking gun URL to flickr’s own blog where it refers to a Second Life images as a “photo”. That should be very clear where flickr stands on these images, eh?
To date, the sum total of their responses has been… let’s see, sum the columns, carry the five….
Nary even an acknowledgment of my submitted plea for even a “NO WAY DOG BREATH” response.
So, perhaps it is time for letting loose on the bat for a big strike three.
So I will ask thrice, oh great and powerful flickr oracle.
And then I will wonder… can flickr feel the footsteps zooomring up behind?
