Go to Flickr!

I'm not really looking forward to a huge surge on flickr (I like it how it is), but Linus does have a good idea:

Brickshelf may be gone, it may not be. But the fact is, there are other host options for lego pictures. One way of helping the community get past the loss is to help everyone get into these sites.

Now, flickr has risen to be one of the most used image-hosting sites by us builders. It's only natural that some of us will continue housing there after this, whatever the outcome. That's why I'd like to start an article describing how Flickr works, and good stuff to know about the site for Lego builders.

I'm going to try to help write. Sign-up here!

Maybe it sounds bit snooty to not want a whole load of new people come to flickr, but I already have waaaay too many contacts and too many groups.

200 picture limit makes me cry. :\

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
