I need to tell you about my recent experience with Flickr safety filters. For those who don’t know, Flickr filters all posts in order to make it a safe environment for everyone. Makes perfect sense. Now, what is considered safe, moderate or restricted, is up to everyone’s tastes, likes and behavior I guess.
I recently posted a picture I was in lingerie, nothing explicit shown, only an image you might as well see in a fashion magazine or even on TV. Someone apparently reported it as unsafe (I’m sorry that my bare arm offended you) and that resulted into my whole stream changing to moderate by flickr staff.
At first I thought, ok, even better in case I forget to change my safety options in the future. Then, I realized that, every picture I had spent hours posting on flickr, adding to groups and all of my work basically, had been removed from the groups that don’t allow moderate images.
I believe you can guess my frustration. I didn’t cry, but I was about to. Did I get a warning before that happened? No. Flickr staff did contact my right away, asking me to change my safety levels for certain images, which I did and everything is back to normal now, but oh my gosh, that surely stressed me out and would have saved me so much trouble if I had been given a heads up first.
Anyways, I would like to dedicate this fully clothed, sad picture to the person(s) I might have offended. Please know I’m not doing porn, it’s not who I am. If I look too sexy in some images, thank you, but that is probably the pose and the feeling I get out of it. If it insulted your taste, I apologize, but next time, let me know about it and I’ll fix it for you.
Thank you Slack Girl for these beautiful tears (what an oxymoron phrase!).
I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done I let my past go past And now I’m having more fun I’m letting go of the thoughts That do not make me strong And I believe this way can be the same for everyone…~Jason Mraz
skylei is wearing “The Babydoll Dress” in Salmon Floral. One of the fabulous new releases from GizzA Creations!
Just thought I would share one of my contest photos with you all.
And a video that I made, while just having some fun.
I am now at 935 subscribers… I lost a few either because, they stopped checking my channel, as from what I understand, you get removed if you do not check back from time to time.. OR, it could have been because I defended my friend Missy, who is also the owner of, American Bazaar from someone that had too much time on their hands, and decided to go off on ME for a dress that I credited to Missy because, she is the person that released it as a part of her store… which was the right thing to do because, well… she DID..
I want people to understand that, many designers either use or have used templates for their designs.. I am a blogger for their store, not an investigator to find out where they got their templates or, if they make them from scratch.
I support both styles of designers.. template and original.. there is nothing wrong with either, and I will continue to share that.
To the person that was all ticked off in my IMs the other day… you are welcome to either A: contact the store directly to voice your concerns or, B: if you feel you can do better… DO IT! Stop harassing bloggers!
Thank you to all that have subscribed, and please share my channel, so that we can get closer to the milestone of 1000 subscribers.
