Flickr Account Deleted

21 06 2008

Recon has a so very not safe for work letter to flickr.

So yeah, I haven’t been posting lately as you can probably tell. The reason for it is this: The other day Flickr deleted my account for apparent violation of community rules without warning me, and I subsequently lost 4 years of pictures (and most pictures I posted on this site) effectively making my archives a blank slate. To quote Willard Shakespeare, holy f—ng s–t in a handbag. Anyway, I’m about to start the process of replacing the posts (all 1300+) with pictures I managed to save, but suffice it say the f—g wind was knocked out of me …

As I said, it’s not safe for work but it’s also very informative about what you can have on your flickr account and what you can’t. I favorite stuff that I like so I can go back to it.

This happened to me this week also. Have you looked into recovering the account? Is it possible?

I know I won’t build a new one after they killed so much of my work.
