Is Fllickr running slow

Given the apparent acceptability of Flickr I am trying to set up an account, however the registration process dies after I submit my email etc in the registration process. - Is this normal.

I was also somewhat troubled by the fact that Flickr is a Yahoo site - is Yahoo a safe place to share images on. Obviously one does not treat this site as a storage site - only a shop window type site.

Re: Is Fllickr running slow

Flickr is not a Yahoo! site any more it was acquired by SmugMug fairly recently.

It may have long term effects but for now it runs as smoothly as it ever did (cough).
SmugMug haven't to my knowledge made any changes to the T&C for now.

Sorry I can't comment on registration as I only did that once, many years ago.

I've been on a free account ever since. I know some people use it as a backup site too, my broadband is too slow and my collection to large to consider that as an option.

Signing in to flickr is still related to yahoo accounts though & linked from yahoo home page.

Re: Is Fllickr running slow

Can one only register to Flickr with a Yahoo account?

I would think opening an account in flickr can be independent but I only signed up ages ago thinking I needed to, to view someone's images & haven't yet used it. I just happened to have a yahoo account as well.
