Day 1166 of 365 4 lyf.

I was invisible.

I used to be popular. I haven’t been nearly as popular as I used to be in a long time. Part of it is phoning in most of my 365s. Part of it is not having the time to comment on other people’s photos as much. Part of it is not having the 365 Podcast anymore which made people pay more attention to me. Really, it’s a combination of factors.

But I was never as unpopular as I was this week. I was barely getting any views at all. I had no idea what was going on.

Then it occured to me to check my safety level. Maybe I’d been marked as moderate again, I thought. Well, I wasn’t moderate. I wasn’t restricted. But I also wasn’t safe. I simply wasn’t anything. I no longer had a safety level at all.

I tried a test. I logged out of flickr and searched for things tagged "365 Days" and "mav." Guess what came up? A lot of stuff that’s not me, that’s what.

So it appeared as though I was NIPSA’d. Which is weird, because that’s not even supposed to exist anymore. I wrote flickr and prepared myself for a long battle over what was and wasn’t appropriate content, but surprise surprise! They fixed it right away.

I guess every once in a while something does work out.

Who knew?

    This is really slick for such a simple effect. I like it!

    It’s a really simple effect, but it worked out.

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)
