I’m in the process of backing up my Flickr account. I’ve heard of some people having their whole accounts wiped out or rather their photos being deleted, so I decided that since I have close to 14,000 photos in my account it would be a great idea to back up my account. Call it my method of cyber security so to speak.
One of the reasons that I’m backing up my account, other than it’s a good idea to do it since I have so many photos stored on Flickr is also because I noticed that they have my account set to not be in the public search. That means they flagged my account at some point. Oh oh! Now I don’t think I’ve ever done anything to break Flickr’s rules but who knows! So .. I’m backing up my account just in case my act of contacting them to ask them to review my account so that it can be put back in public search doesn’t end up getting my account closed.
Have you ever had any problems on Flickr? Do you store lots of photos there? Do you back up your photos too?
