Hello there! This thread is similar to one I created not-so-long ago when I needed an iChat account. I really want to use Flickr, and would quite happily sign up with my e-mail address - which apparently now, you can't do. I need a darn Yahoo! I.D - and since I never use Yahoo! for anything, I would rather not have one. So I need 2 things: 1. Can I sign up to Flickr without Yahoo!? 2. If I need to go the Yahoo! route, what screen name could I have? I'm really picky, sorry in advance. I don't want numbers in it, or randomly generated words, I would rather have my name (Joshua David Thomas) - not full, but some variant of it... please If anyone could help, I would be FOREVER greatful, and even dedicate a Flickr gallery to you! Thanks Guys! Edit: I have tried JDT, J.DT, JoshDThomas, JoshuaThomas, JoshThomas, JoshuaDThomas, JoshDavidThomas, JayTee, JayDeeTee... the lot - someone creative, purlease, Hewp!
