flickr account

what happened to my flickr account?

when i press sign in i have to have a yahoo account which i don’t want because i want my Digital foot print to be smaller not bigger
did yahoo buy the website?

Flickr has always been owned by Yahoo and by default has required a yahoo e-mail address to register. I can only assume that you made a yahoo e-mail to register long ago, but have forgotten about it.

However, Flickr was recently bought by SmugMug, and they’re working to make any e-mail usable for making an account.

no, i use a google account
