Today, I just received an email that Flickr has given a deadline for us "Old Skool" members to merge our accounts with a Yahoo! account.
Not only has the Yahoo!/Flickr crowd squarely ignored user and customer needs, they have gone ahead and done something that the users were explicitly against. Already, a lot of the users on the Flickr forum have asked if they could cancel their membership.
And here are the reasons that I think this was a big mistake on Yahoo! and Flickr's part.
Doesn't anybody take lessons in basic business practices anymore?
