It had to come eventually for me. This years £55 subs imminent message dropped to my inbox. Given that many of my friends have all but stopped using Flickr, I decided enough was enough and cancelled my pro subscription. Currently I am going through my images and deleting a load to get me under the 1000 limit. Another 50 or so to go and I will be there. Was kind of fun watching my stats drop. Seems I will never hit that 5 million views mark that was so close before today.

Shame really, Flickr was once a great place with a superb community. Now it is just a pat on the back for any shot storage bin IMO, If I was storing 12000 pics maybe I would feel it was worth it, Possibly if I used any of the little add-ons it would be better value to me. With only 1250 pics I was a minimal user. Maybe I am the only one who feels like this?

No, your not the only one Phil. Flickr used to be great but it's gone down hill seriously in the last few years. I've still got a "normal" account but I've not used it in years as it ended up just "Oh, I like your photo, now come over and like mine..." or these meaningless awards that folk doled out.

Last time I checked it out properly, it seemed half the stuff on there was just being used as image dumping in a similar vein to pinterest, imgur, et al.
