So up to 1000

Kombizz says:

As far as the Flickr regulation says: Up to 1000 photos in an account is free of charge.
Then I wonder why few photographers have more than 1000 photos without being a Pro or having a Pro Account?
For example, 'Tribes of the World' has 7,974 Photos without having a Pro Account?
Thanks

The 1,000-photo limit is less than three years old. The user you mention has not uploaded any new photos the last seven years.

We were told any photos over 1,000 may be deleted, not that they would be deleted right away.

Feel free to look for an account with more than 1,000 photos that uploaded new photos during the last three years or so.

Thank you Viejito for clarifying the regulation.
For sure I did not know that it started this new 1000 photo 3 years ago.

If they MAY be deleted then just what is the criteria used to decide on any deletions. I understood that free members would have any excess over 1000 photos deleted with the oldest ones first.

There's no criteria other than they haven't got around to it yet.

Any pictures other than “all rights reserved” doesn’t count as the max 1000 if I’m not mistaken, a reason why many still have over the limits.

Where does it say that please? I am trying to understand just what the rules are and whether they are being implemented

Partial quote (very partial):

All public Creative Commons works on Flickr are now protected from deletion.
Creative Commons licenses have been an important part of Flickr since we introduced them on our platform in 2004. We've made it simple for Flickr members to license any photos in their account under any of the Creative Commons licenses and designations, which has resulted in Flickr being the largest single repository of freely licensed material anywhere in the world. We now host more than 500 million public CC-licensed works, with many more uploaded every day. etc.

Thanks for that I guess that the initial report concerning deletion no longer applies to free members, so just what was the point? I have no idea just what Creative Commons are so thats me for this topic.

Even if they have not gotten around to deleting your older photos over 1,000, you cannot upload any new photos until you remove the old ones yourself.

By “you” I mean people in general who have over 1,000 photos.

Google (or some other search engine) is (y)our friend:
