Flickr Old Skool Badges
Thursday, February 15th, 2007
On January 30th, pre-acquisition members of Flickr received an email. For those of you who didn’t receive the message, it looked something like this. The gist of the message was that, on or before March 15th 2007, us “old skool” members would have to roll our original Flickr usernames (our email addresses) into new or existing Yahoo! accounts.
Stick Wit U
Now, I’m not going to get involved with the discussion about the merits of this decision, especially since I’m going to have to create a special Yahoo! account just for Flickr (personal preference, yes, but only because I only use my existing Yahoo! account for communication with a few specific offline organizations, and combining them with Flickr just doesn’t make sense), but I thought in the spirit of us old skool members sticking with Flickr for so long, through thick and thin, I’d whip up an easy way to display our “age” (perhaps you’d prefer “steadfastness”?). So, with one month to go until the deadline, here they are: Flickr Old Skool Badges.
Badges? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Badges!
Each badge is a 48px x 48px transparent PNG, perfect for layering right on top of your existing Flickr profile image. Just right-click on the links below to save each image to your computer.
No usage restrictions, just credit me and link back here if you alter and redistribute them, and don’t redistribute the original versions (link directly to this entry).
Old Skool users rawk!
