Yahoo apparently brought in a high priced expert consultant to help them plan a rollout of a flickr update
First all the change in the layouts, which I admit I like as a design– it forefronts the image.
But alas, the change did again break my CC Attribution Helper script. It took a few rounds of XPATH fiddling, but there is a new update available.
Yet the flaffle over what the new accounts mean is staggerling clownish. Most everyone I heard form on twitter was as confused as I what these new accounts mean for existing pro users. Most think they are being asked to choose one of the new accounts (you do not).
Why would I want to switch to Free? Just because it is free? It suggests I need to do something by August.
I’m staying Pro, Yo.
But ahem flickr.
You just drop this on a community w/o any notice? sneak preview? ask for feedback?
I feel not only like a user, but used.
Tumblr, meet your future maker. Errr, Makr.
Just squeeze the ref rubber nose
