Well, now that the deal is done, we're starting down that road of destroying Flickr just as everyone feared...

Or not.

Instead, Flickr Pro users all get double their subscriptions and double the uploads per month. Check it out on the Flickr blog.

I just started playing with Flickr the other day - very nice service. I'm excited that they're a part of the Yahoo! team and I am optimistic that we're going to see some cool stuff come out of it. People need to leave behind their cynicism - hopefully this will help.

I've had a basic Flickr account for a while now and was always a little skeptical about upgrading but with the features and the price, I'll probably upgrade tonight. :)

I sure wish now that I has saved that email from Caterina from around six months ago in which she told me that the beta Pro users wouldn't get any additional rewards for being Pro users. It was because of that email that I did not sign up for the pro account. After all, if they aren't concerned with rewarding their supporters, why would I want to support them?

Anyhow, I'm glad that Yahoo is doing what Flickr wouldn't have done: rewarding the supporters.
