  1. I don’t underatand the problem. It’s a good idea to have a second account for her pictures. And come on, this ONE fav more or less don’t make a problem. Problems are User that run around asslicking for favs. So you see on their flickrs a “boring, not edit pic” with 300 favs. Those are the ones that ruin our Flickr idea. And many don’t even dare to tell you into the face, they removed you as contact, because you never fav back.

  2. FLICKR for secondlife users is no longer about hobby and pure creativity. It becomes very redudant and cheap. It looses the meaning for those who are looking for creative outlet. It becomes boring, too sexual with all those cartoon characters and stoop to low standard with no creative effort at all. It is all about popularity, sales and sex

    • Flickr has become so boring lately. How many clones of women avatars in strappy outfits do we need? All and I mean All the Bento heads look identical no matter what applier you wear and every guy has the same swoosh hair and beard, and let’s not forget how many are elves. Enough already! When people start getting creative and not all wearing clone outfits from the events, just maybe I will look again.

  3. Don’t forget people who spam their shit in every single group they are in, regardless if their pictures fit the group criteria or not.

  4. I read the Flickr community guidelines a long time ago and I was astonished at how the SL community in particular openly flouted them yet at any particular time when it suited them they’d turn around and want to use them to their advantage.
    I have examples –

    “be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members” – Brandon Taselian frequently calls Flickr members “fckers” yet then files a DMCA when anyone upsets him in his little bubble.

    “Moderate your content” – Numerous times I have seen pixel parts that I didn’t want or need to see because they weren’t moderated properly, and then as soon as said person is made moderate there is a mighty shit storm about how others are jealous and have reported them blah blah ,when really it’s a case of no love I don’t want to see your pixel pussy, or someone totally unrelated to SL (yes these people do exist) has came across these images and reported abuse.

    “Flickr is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others” – Last week there was an article on this site about a blogger filing a DMCA and I saw vitriol and numerous threats of violence against this individual on her Flickr stream from members of the SL community, including Oakley Foxtrot calling her a “BITCH”

    “We don’t tolerate spam, deceptive tagging” – I won’t post a link but again previously Brandon Taselian deceptively tagged his images in an effort to boost views if anyone cares to look back at his stream some of the tags are still there but will now probably be removed asap.

    “Don’t vent your frustrations, rant, or bore the brains out of other members” – Kate Bergdorf has made a new group – “This Flickr group is a non-violent protest against Donald Trump as President of the United States. Only one week after the election, we are already witnessing a trickle-down effect of his inhumane executive orders all over the world. We will not helplessly stand by and be silenced by this wave of injustice and offer the group as a Second Life forum for us all to use our creativity as a means to process and reflect upon the current world crisis and express our experiences. Second Life people of any nationality and from any country are encouraged to submit photos.”
    This bores me and she’s venting her frustrations as are many others who have made images and added them to her group!

    “Respect the copyright of others” – Samanda Eddingham, Charly Keating and others who have used textures and not respected the copyright of the artists.

    “Don’t use Flickr for unauthorized commercial activity” – Many SL bloggers continually ignore this and post links on their Flickr.

    I could go on but won’t.
    Before you ask The Whisperer if they’ve read the rules make sure you ask everyone else too.

    Also be aware there are discussions in some RL photography groups that SL “photographers” are taking over Flickr and these people are not very happy
    A comment I read recently –

    “Most of the “Second Life” stuff I happen to notice is scantily clad or fully nude 3D computer-generated characters with unrealistic breasts the size of weather balloons and/or genitalia the size of tomahawk missiles, engaged in sexual activity or generally waving their bologna around in a haphazard manner. I always assumed it was hormone-flooded adolescents involved with it for the most part. If you set your safe search to only see safe images, it will cut out a great deal of those images that are properly set.”

    • Scroll past pictures of pixel pussy, don’t join the “we hate Trump” group, I am sure it’s got plenty of members anyways. Stop following people that do the things you talked about above, report them if you have to……You spent a lot of time calling out Flickr members for this reason and that reason and tbh you bored the shit out of me. Stop going on if it makes you rage so hard!

    • To your comment about SL Bloggers, we are actually very much allowed to link to our blogs in our Flickr, as stated directly in the Community Guidelines themselves:

      “Your links need to be human readable (no shortened URLs) and they should be relevant to the photo, such as links to your website, to social media sites, or to your blog.”

      If links to outside sites weren’t allowed, they wouldn’t give us guidelines to regulate them by.

  5. Correct me if i am wrong, but i think that copyright infringement refers to your work being used in someone else’s photo stream (on Flickr), not used on externally hosted sites. Maybe someone can show me exactly where it says that this website has broken flickrs copyright terms.

  6. Don’t know if you ever read this most of us never read the guidelines. It seem you have taking copy righted stuff off pages. I don’t know if said person /group gave you the rights to do so. Nor do I feel that you in any way benefit from such malice.

    Flickr Community guidelines
    Flickr accounts are intended for members to share original photos and video that they themselves have created.
    These Community Guidelines are here to help you understand what it means to be a member of Flickr. Don’t forget that your use of Flickr is subject to these Community Guidelines and our Terms of Service.
    Things to do
    Play nice
    We’re a global community of many types of people, who all have the right to feel comfortable and who may not think what you think, believe what you believe, or see what you see. So, be polite and respectful in your interactions with other members.
    Only upload content that you have created.
    Respect the copyright of others. This means don’t steal photos or videos that other people have shared and pass them off as your own. (That’s what favorites and galleries are for.)
    Moderate your content.
    All content on Flickr, public and private, has to be appropriately moderated as “safe”, “moderate”, or “restricted” using our safety and content filters. If your judgment proves to be poor, we’ll moderate your account to match appropriate categorization for Safe Search and/or content type and send you a warning.
    Link back to Flickr when you post your Flickr content elsewhere.
    Flickr makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to other web sites. Pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr. This provides a way to get more information about the content and the photographer.
    Enjoy Flickr!
    This is your community. Celebrate your creativity, be social and share what’s important to you. See the world through others’ eyes, participate, find your muse, and expand your horizons!
    Things not to do
    Here’s the deal: We like to give second chances. However, when we discover you stepping across any of the lines listed below, we will take action, which may mean deleting your account with or without warning.
    Don’t upload anything that isn’t yours.
    This includes other people’s photos, video, and/or stuff you’ve copied or collected from around the Internet. Accounts that consist primarily of such collections may be deleted at any time. Flickr also has a zero tolerance policy towards sharing adult or sexualized content of another person without that person’s consent (Non-Consensual Pornography). If you experience this, report it to us.
    Don’t forget the children.
    If you would hesitate to show your photos or videos to a child, your family, or a stranger on the street, that means you need to set the appropriate content filter setting. If you don’t, your account will be moderated and possibly deleted by Flickr staff.
    Don’t show nudity in your buddy icon or cover photo.
    Only content considered “safe” is appropriate for your icon or cover photo. If we find either contains inappropriate content, we’ll remove it, mark your account as “restricted” and send you a warning. If we find you doing it again, we’ll delete your account.
    Don’t upload content that is illegal or prohibited.
    If we find you doing that, your account will be deleted and we’ll take appropriate action, which may include reporting you to the authorities.
    Don’t vent your frustrations, rant, or bore the brains out of other members.
    Flickr is not a venue for you to harass, abuse, spam, impersonate, or intimidate others. If we receive a valid complaint about your conduct, we’ll send you a warning or delete your account.
    Don’t be creepy.
    You know the guy. Don’t be that guy.
    Don’t use your account to host web graphics or as a replacement for a content distribution network.
    If we find you using your account to host generic graphic elements of web page designs, logos, banners, icons, and other non-photographic elements on other web sites, or if you show suspicious upload behavior that impacts the stability of our servers, we will warn you or delete your account.
    Don’t spam
    We don’t tolerate spam, deceptive tagging, deceptive photo titles and descriptions, resource abuse, or other abusive means to generate revenue and traffic to your photos on Flickr or elsewhere. Don’t know what we mean by spam? Check out Yahoo’s Anti-Spam policy and Terms of Service.
    Don’t use Flickr for unauthorized commercial activity.
    We offer tools for the community to license their works to others; if interested, visit our Marketplace. Flickr generally supports photographer entrepreneurs big and small, but we don’t want to be a platform for your commercial activity or your business transactions, except for photos you enroll directly in our Marketplace.

    In your photo descriptions and on your profile page, you are welcome to link to your website or blog where you might also sell your work, but do not link directly to a shopping cart, checkout page, or pricing pages on other sites, and don’t list prices on your Flickr photo descriptions.

    Your links need to be human readable (no shortened URLs) and they should be relevant to the photo, such as links to your website, to social media sites, or to your blog. Don’t turn your photo descriptions into link spam. Again, we enforce Yahoo’s Anti-Spam policy.
    Oh, and one more thing:
    Copyright Infringement.
    If you see photos or videos that you’ve created in another member’s photostream, don’t panic. This is probably just a misunderstanding and not malicious. A good first step is to contact them via FlickrMail and politely ask them to remove it. If that doesn’t work, please file a Notice of Infringement with the Yahoo Copyright Team who will take it from there.
    You may be tempted to post an entry on your photostream or in our public forum about what’s happening, but that’s not the best way to resolve a possible copyright problem. We don’t encourage singling out individuals like this on Flickr as it could be seen as harassment which is against our guidelines.
    In Conclusion
    If you don’t feel that you can abide by our Community Guidelines as outlined above, maybe Flickr isn’t for you. We’ve crafted these guidelines to ensure that everyone within the Flickr community has a good time.
    You may also want to check out our FAQs and Privacy Policy. If you ever have any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you. Please feel free to drop us a line through Help by Email.
