I've only been here a short time but so far I'm really impressed with the site's different features. The quality of the images and the photographers is amazing. I uploaded my first photo (branches and lines) to ipernity without uploading it to flickr. I have yet to hear good news about the MS offer for Y! (apparently many analysts expect it to eventually happen) but AFAIK nothing is definite at the present time. Still, I'm glad that situation forced me to try ipernity.
