Flickr now in maintenance mode?

Yahoo is stopping investing in Flickr

Sad time for those of us that still use and enjoy Flickr:

While products such as Yahoo Games will soon be shut down, Yahoo says that it will be reducing its investment in non-essential properties such as Flickr. Flickr will stay alive, but Yahoo will be reducing Flickr’s resources and attempt to run the photo service in a way that requires minimal overhead.)

Essentially, the best we can hope for is that Yahoo sells Flickr to someone who will care about it – or that Yahoo itself is sold and that the new owners give a damn. Time to pay more attention to 500px again, I think.
