I finally heard back from Flickr. They said because I am not writing from my original email, they can't do anything unless I describe my "private" photos. I don't have any of those. I don't know how to get them. I had to change my email on Yahoo anyway, so my Flickr should be the same. I am wondering if there are any other free sites like Flickr that you can store and share photos. Also, how would I get them off Flickr and into the other site. This thing is really making me angry. Now they want my social security number. I do not feel comfortable giving that out.

Now she is threatening to remove all my photos and I will never be able to retrieve them because I said maybe I should go somewhere else. I still want to keep those that are on there. I am not sure what thumb drive they might be on and it will be a while before I can get my old computer fixed and get them off there.

I was trying to look at your photos (URL on bottom of your posts) when it wouldn't let me sign in. Couldn't go with user name because it insisted on email address. Don't know what my password was anyway, because Yahoo wouldn't accept anything I put in for it sometime back and it ended up rather complicated.

I haven't had any problems with Flickr, YET, but have not been on it very much either. I don't think I have put a new picture on it for about a year.
I have been using Facebook and sharing photos with my friends on there and have a lot of fun with that. I do save all of my pictures on an exterior drive for safer keeping.
I will probably keep my Flickr since I do have about 6,000 pictures on there! ha ha
And I do enjoy looking at other members photos!

I tried logging in to the new account, then searching for my old account user name (fancyqtr). That sent me to someone who put theirs in as Fancy_qtr and has absolutely nothing on there. So the only way I can get to it is through the link I put on the bottom of my SparkPeople posts. I kinda wonder why someone took my user name and just put an underline in the middle if they weren't going to use the Flickr anyway.

Kind of hard to keep up with Yahoo and all the shuffling around, but as nearly as I can tell they sold a bunch of things to Verizon who then sold Flickr to SmugMug? Microsoft must have gotten hold of some of it as well since most of my Bing searches default to Yahoo search now. All very confusing.

I contacted them and it seems like they merged with another site and the other site is running it now. They said it will be a while before they can get back to me because they are still trying to figure out how to run it. Lovely. It may be a few months before they get back or just a few weeks, who knows. Meanwhile, I don't know how to get to those pictures and I don't know where I might have them on a card. My old computer went down and needs a motherboard before I can check for them on it. I didn't get all my photos on thumb drive yet.

I had problems awhile back and ended up deleting my account. I have a new one but don't use it much because we add the photos in the reply.

I was on it today & it was okay.

Have any of you been having problems getting on Flickr. I was trying to get on today (actually was just going to look at Jo's photos) and couldn't log in. It said I didn't have an account under either email address. It started out that it had one address, but I couldn't sign in on it and needed a key code from them. Then it wouldn't accept the key code. I had to set up a new account and all my pictures that I had on there I can't get to from there. Guess I will have to go through this new account, then somehow go find the old account that it says I don't have. Ugh!
