Roz, I know what you mean... So much is over there, all of our photos, groups, sets, comments, contacts.. And when my account was deleted a few years ago, I was completely devastated by it. Losing all of that was just awful and the only reason I came back was because that was where everyone else was. But I honestly live in fear on Flickr... I can't relax and am always paranoid about if and when they will decide to just delete my account again. So this just seems like a great opportunity to start fresh and feel a sense of freedom! It will take us all time to get settled and feel comfortable here, but at least we know that we can post whatever the heck we want without the Flickr police breathing down our necks! :) *hugs*

I can see that side of the story too, Mel! I remember when that happened to you. I would be devastated too if that happened to me. We will see what happens, friends are most important, and I want to be where everyone is. The rules here might be like the ones on flickr too. Time will tell, and right now everything feels frustrating! it is hard to see activity here, but we will see! Hugs to you!

Thanks, Roz. I want to be where everyone else is too, so I totally understand that! Yes, this is a little bit frustrating trying to figure out how to use the site, but I am sure it will become a lot easier as we get used to it.
I actually emailed the ipernity team before I told anyone that I joined here, because I wanted to make sure that posting images with links to sales was okay and that our accounts wouldn't be deleted if we post photos of things we've made, etc. They replied very quickly and said yes, it is fine. For me, it was a done deal then :)

I didn't realize that you had asked Ipernity about linking to sales and they said that it's okay. THAT is a big change for sure. That is good to know. It was certainly always dreadful when someone was just deleted without any notice. This site will just take some getting used to. It is still hard to see what's happening here as compared to the way it was on flickr. However, if we are all here, then I will be too.

I have over 7 years over there too, 6 of uploading and sharing almost every day so I totally am feeling like there was a death in the family.. I think Ill keep my Flickr Ill check in but its hard to know that so much will change and the main aesthetic is so different :/ I want to give somewhere else a try before giving Yahoo any more of my Hard earned money!

You have tons of people who love you, you will be followed whereever you go ;)

Yes...same as you, Pamela, I have been on flickr since 2006, so this is a shock and it does feel like a loss to me. I knew the second I saw that new crap on flickr, that is was a horrible sign of things to come. I honestly did feel ill when I saw that new layout! IF we are all here, and it is easy to comment and see everything, that is a good thing. Aww, thanks, I don't know about that, but I don't want to lose touch with my friends!

HI Tricia! Good to see you here too! No, I don't like flickr either. I feel a little like a duck out of water at the moment...in between two sites!

I found my way here too! I don't have as many photos as you do, Roz, so not as daunting a move for me. Hopefully ipernity will come up with an easy way to transfer photos over from Flickr. I plan on staying on at both sites for now, until I'm sure, although I'm not thrilled at the prospect...I have a hard enough time keeping up with one site!

Daunting is the word for it! I sort of don't know what to think, Marilyn! BUT seeing friends here makes things a lot easier. I will stay on both sites too for now, and like you, I feel like I am SO behind already on flickr, so trying to keep up with two places, makes me wonder: can I do it! I still have to add everyone as contacts...I have started, but not nearly finished! Thanks for stopping here!

I think Flickr is relying on the fact that communities have been built there and people won't want to move, change or not. Which is why they didn't bother consulting anyone. I must say I'm not impressed by the arrogance. If at least we were given the choice not to have our pictures shown in the justified format I'd probably be ok with the new Flickr. As it is, I find it very, very difficult, so I'm giving ipernity a change.

Arrogant, for sure. No, flickr only thought about money. I keep thinking about that. I guess that there are not many businesses or companies that don't make money the number one concern, but that does not make this any easier. I guess that we learned a hard lesson from this...while we cared for and loved our community on flickr...they never saw it through our eyes, we were deceiving ourselves if we thought that they did. AND I hate knowing that! :) So good to see you here, Char! I just don't want to lose touch with my favorite people...and the community that brings so much happiness to my life!

I feel lost today, hovering between the old and the new. However I am comforted that my dolly friends and contacts will stick with each other no matter what. Personally I am not ready to leave flickr. There's so much history there.
But I will follow your beautiful pics and dolls no matter what Roz!

Amazing photo, as always:) I hope you are staying in here as well, i would hate to miss your updates on my favourit dolls!
Now, about leaving flickr, I think I will stay until i'm sure i'm not leaving anyone behind, like you I dont like to leave my contact list. I'm not so conserned about the pics though, I can always upload them again:) (i dont have 14.000 though) ^_^

Aww, thank you very much!! I am still trying to figure out this place as well, and I am a bit slow in having the time to really explore it! I will definitely stay on flickr as well...I think that some people are for sure not leaving there. I take a lot of pix, and I have been on flickr since 2006...:D

I will keep my Flickr account for now. I have almost 20.000 pictures over-there, all fully tagged with lots of info but now I'm afraid to add any more. I will move some of my Blythe pictures to Ipernity since it looks that my Blythe life will be here now that so many people from the Blythe community have moved here. Although I have all my pictures on an external hard drive, they can crash too just like computers, so I'm still looking for another safe place to store my pictures just in case there is a fire, earthquake or typhoon.

I hope you stay Roz! But you have to be where you are comfortable. I am going to post here, but keep my account over there for a little while to keep in touch with friends. Maybe I can convert them, heehee! :)DDDD xo
