My Friend Flickr
Last night I signed up for Flickr, purely so I could comment on other people's photos. I've been adding everyone whose usernames or real names I recognise. Except I've now fallen foul of the "Slow down partner!" restriction on new accounts, which is there to prevent spam. Fair enough - but there's no indication of how long I need to wait before I can add more people to my contacts list! Does anyone know?

I am, of course, using the name baratron. If you actually use Flickr, feel free to add me. (I've seen quite a few people I recognise whose accounts seem to be dead, but I'm not sure whether they really are dead or if it's just that they don't upload photos there anymore due to terms of service issues). Possibly, having existing users add me might be what's required to undo the "Slow down" marking, I'm not sure.

I would expect it to help.

Can you actually upload some photos?

"Can" as in "Physically able to"? Not sure right now, I'm working. Also, I don't have the cable to connect my mobile to my computer here - although I did download the Android Flickr app, so maybe I don't need it. Would prefer to do it from the computer though.

I added you. I'm there as "Rocket House Studio"; I've got almost 3000 photos up: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rocket-house-studio/

I can't log into the account you added :-/ I did have a Flickr account with some actual pictures uploaded but I can't remember which one and I hate Flickr anyway.

Firstly, congratulations on a quality pun! (I remember reading that book when I was at school.)

I've added you as a contact on Flickr, in case that helps. However, I should warn you that most of the photos I've been tagged in are from the World Naked Bike Ride, so you may want to be cautious about clicking the thumbnails...

I don't know anything specific about the "slow down partner" restrictions, but here's the relevant FAQ entry in case you haven't seen it:
