Flickr merges their login system with Yahoo!

Flickr is finally forcing the switch from the “old skool” login system that pre-dated Flickr’s acquisition by Yahoo! with the Yahoo! (is it protocol to put the ! every time you type out that company name?) login system. Bummer, I resisted merging my flickr account with my yahoo account for the same silly reason that you get tee-shirts for obscure bands, so you can say “yeah, I was into them before they were popular”.

On March 15th we’ll be discontinuing the old email-basedFlickr sign in system. From that point on, everyone will have to use a Yahoo! ID to sign in to Flickr.
