Flickr’s 1000 picture limit

I created my SL Flickr account in 2008, and when Flickr’s new 1000 photo limit came in semi-recently I had to delete a few pictures to squeeze under the limit.

Not much has changed since then as I haven’t been in SL much, and haven’t been taking a lot of photos. However, I’ve started taking photos again and want to upload them to Flickr so even more old photos need to go. So I took the brave decision to delete any photo older than 10 years old, no matter how many views, faves, and comments it had.

I now have 419 photos left. I guess I was pretty prolific in the first 2 years!

The photos aren’t gone forever, because they are backed up on a self-hosted gallery here on this domain. But all the faves, comments, and view counts are now lost… like tears in rain.

I’m now self-hosting my blog

If you’re visiting my blog then you may have noticed that the address has changed.

The nice guys at DataHamster have let me have space on their server to host my blog, rather than relying on wordpress.com

The main reason I have done this is so that I can have redirects, which means that whenever I update my Compiling Your Own Viewer post, I can make sure that the link does not become broken.

The other advantage is that visitors don’t get spammed by adverts inserted by wordpress.com either. You’re welcome. 🙂

The only downside is that although comments came across ok, “likes” did not come across. 🙁
