But how long does love last?

Is i just a dream?

or is it The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds

Love sucks. It always stamps on your nuts and steals all your best CD's.

And maxes your credit cards.

Love sucks.

The old radio still plays

....Love hurts, love scars, love wounds
And mars, any heart
Not tough or stong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain
Love hurts......ooh,ooh love hurts....

I'm glad someone mentioned this, I would have gone on thinking it was just part of the messages about renewing my pro account.

Another 24.95? C'mon, we love you!

Back story: just before we left the office today, we were talking about when we were going to remove Gamma from the logo (was originally supposed to happen last summer, but it never did) and Dunstan asked if he could change it to "loves you" and so we did. We'll probably change it back to gamma soon :)

it loves me today... but will it love me enough when my pro account runs out in a month to not charge me to re-up? i think not...

It's always nice to know I'm loved. I spent so much of my teen years hearing how worthless I am, being told I'm loved is quite refreshing.

Great. Now Flickr says it loves me. But in a few months, I'll catch Flickr cheating on me with some floozy photographer and I'll end up sleeping until noon, wearing sweat pants and eating taco bell all day long.

You're all wrong, Flickr loves ME. It says so in grey and white. Doesn't "Flickr love *you*", does it? Well then.

I know flickr is just a golddigging slut out for m y $25, but it's still nice to hear!

I think every week that logo should change... ie google... cute stuff like "Hi mom" or "Duke sucks"... hehe!
purplewon2000 14 years ago
Gamma sounds like it was going to break out the ray guns and annihalate all of us. Flickr loves you sounds so much more positive.

To me it sounds a bit cheesy, and somewhat irrelevant.

why change it willy nilly like that just for the heck of it if it doesn't even mean anything?

this, of course, assumes that it doesn't mean anything.

Oh, just great! "Loves you" from flickr is exactly the same as "fight for freedom" from w bush. Such a shameless hypocrisy.
Oh wait I get it the rest of didn't fit conveniently : ..."r money and what's left of you as a person for lunch."

"Ooooooo... I'm flickr! I can do anything! I'll start by I using a misspelled word for name - I'm be brilliant."

Go feck self with your fecking love.

I'm confused, have Stewart, Heather and the team invaded a Middle Eastern country? Is Flickrstan finally a reality? Will there be daiquiris?
striatic 14 years ago
I'd prefer a tactical fuck.

i think those are prohibited under various non proliferation treaties.

is flickrstan a signatory to any of those?

ultrasupergenius Posted 13 years ago. Edited by ultrasupergenius (member) 13 years ago
I really cannot believe that people find this endearing, but to each their own. That logo drove me crazy. It is just creepy. The first time I saw it, maybe then it was cute or something. But it just didn't go away. I removed it with Ad Block Plus on Firefox. Flickr seems a lot less creepy to me now, that I have removed it from my version of Flickr. It seems a lot less "Yahoo doesn't want you to realize this is a big corporate site, so we are doing cute things to make you feel endeared to us".

That logo is the internet equivalent of "Flair" in Office Space.

Ultra you really didnt write that did u?...your kidding right?....creepy??

Its obvious u believe a big corporation must be souless and view its customers as disposable non entitys but that stigma doesn't need to always apply...its more a negative result than what really should be.

Took me awhile to even find the thing at first and can hardly see it. You should seek help for this neurosis....its not normal and "creepy"

Thanks Flickr!!! Muaxx!
if flickr loves us so much how come it doesn't love us before we log in ??? huh???

have you looked at the logo on the login page...
it just gives a cold cold cold "Gamma"...

and if flickr loves us so much and wants our attention how come it isn't in the front page when we aren't logged in (I know sometimes some people aren't logged into flickr, weired huh)

well I think this love that flickr has for us with all its restrictions that we have to be logged it is just creepy :)
-RobW- 13 years ago
It's so creepily creepy that just creeping around the site creeps me out. Creeps.

Creep is one of those words that just looks weird if you keep writing it. Creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep creep.

So its ok for everyone else to revive threads except when I do it great I will keep note if that.

Well, if you aren't understanding the greater context, maybe its safer if you stay with that conclusion...
Patrick Costello 7 years ago

Can you point out a grammatical error in Brock's post? I'm a pedant when it comes to such things and that post looks fine to me. Now Pacdog's ... :-)
FlyButtafly Posted 7 years ago. Edited by FlyButtafly (admin) 7 years ago
Patrick Costello:

Their they're... ;)

Maybe she's referring to the extraneous apostrophe...?
mag3737 7 years ago
There's a sentence fragment, although it's one I would consider well within the bounds of acceptability in prose in the context. The only thing left is the apostrophe, but that's more of a usage/style preference, in my opinion anyway. The missing apostrophe in his next posting is another story. But that came after the complaint. Maybe Origami48616 is psychic.

Maybe Origami48616 is psychic.

You left a couple of letters out of that final word...;-)
Origami48616 7 years ago
mag3737- Ok I will predict your future. After you log off off flickr something bad is going to happen. It may not be today or tomorrow but it will happen.
Origami48616 7 years ago
Patrick- Scroll up and look at the earlier comments and you will see what I'm talking about.
Patrick Costello 7 years ago

That was Brock's only post in the thread.

Or are you holding him personally responsible for everyone's grammatical expertise? And do bear in mind Flickr is a global community; many FC members post here in their second or third language.
Origami48616 7 years ago
Patrick-It wasn't his only post in this thread if you looked at the very first comments made in this thread you would know. I know all I am just saying don't criticize me when you make you same mistake.

Um, yes, yes it was. It was the only comment I made in this thread until your (bizarre, agenda unknown) comment about grammar.

His only other post is in response to you...
