Pink Droplets Last night and this morning I did a comparison with Flickr and ipernity: on each site, I tried to do what I usually do when I'm replying to comments. I go to my previous day's main picture and open a new window for each person that left a comment. Then I work my way through every page, appreciating pictures and leaving comments.

On Flickr, trying to open a sampling of just 10 pages took over 5 minutes, and since every page opens to a wall of pictures, you must click on the first picture and then wait for it to load. Each picture takes about 20-30 seconds to load which is totally ridiculous. Making a comment and saving it takes 3x longer than it used to. It took me about 20 minutes to work my way through 10 pages and left me feeling very upset and frustrated. I feel like I'm trying to walk through sticky tar now and I just hate it!

On ipernity, I used their feature of seeing who visited in the past x hours, and working my way back to 48 hours ago, I opened about 60 pages on individual tabs and then spent about an hour leaving comments on all of them. I was enjoying myself and took more time at each page, but still the outcome was twice as fast over at ipernity, and feeling very happy and excited when I was done!

So, with that in mind, I paid a year's membership and am now part of the ipernity club! YAY! I'll begin importing all of my images from Flickr today! :)
