From what I have been reading elsewhere on the Internet is that it looks like us previous Pro users will get grand-fathered into Yahoo/Flickr's new system, meaning that we can continue to use our current Pro accounts and upload well pasted 1 TB of photos (if that's possible), as well as continue to renew our annual subscription for as long as we want.
Yes, if you are signed up for auto-renew. But that was made mandatory last year, so some people (such as, for example, me), who bought a 2-year Pro subscription two years ago, aren't 'recurring Pro' users. My Pro subscription will expire.
According to one staff member post, they're 'working on a plan' to allow non-recurring Pro users convert to recurring Pro accounts, and thus keep the Pro features (stats, ability to replace photos, ad-free).
Yeah, and they 'won't screw up' Tumblr, too....something else I'll believe when I see.
I am not impressed either, but at least it's something for us. Hopefully they do get something arranged for non recurring Pro members.
