    I can't really answer what and why creators can choose. But I can imagine that small brands will simply do Maitreya skins for themselves (because its the body they use on their avatar and the only body they own = can use for testing). And then won't keep the skins as private but will put them for sale - as other stuff they do for themselves in the first place, because its not business for them. Or just because "Maitreya" name sells - people will not be (since very beginning) informed about no need to buy some "Omega thingy" to make system Omega skin work. Users thinking: "I own Maitreya body = I buy Maitreya skin." Or for many other reasons I can't even imagine, not being creator myself.

    It was in the context of said before - small brand creators who already did not provide more appliers than maitreya + omega. In the future we can expect they will make new system skins for BOM for Maitreya only (as best seller). But if they will keep the tones same as today, the current Omega appliers will still work with the Slink feet (as solution for the "nail issue"). In other words, I will keep the feet applier I already have and use it together with the new system skin for body (what will be in the future available for BOM). At least from your previous post I understood this will be solution for the nail issue. And for me, not being DYI person, probably the only one - if I will want to keep my current skin and the creator will not make more for BOM than Maitreya system skin. A lot people like their skins and stuck with them for years, I don't see that as so rare. And not everyone will be given more options from skin creators. (BTW I'm still not sure if I get right how it ill work.)

    I meant something else. IF I understood correctly what you said, it probably means that to wear tattoos with BOM will be more complicated than today (for avatars who don't wear same brand meshes on entire body). Model situation: - avatar wears Maitreya body and Slink feet. - she wants to buy full body tattoo (feet included) or leg tattoo (feet incl.) Today - she will buy tattoo with Omega appliers - they will work with all her mesh parts and with all her skins BOM - in the first step she will have to think about her skin: "Do I wear system skin on entire body (Maitreya + Slink)?" YES = no problem, I can wear system tattoos with no limitation NO (I wear system skin on body only + Slink appliers on feet (to avoid the nail issue, because my creator made the system skin for Maitreya only) = I can't wear system tattoos with feet included, because they will not work with the feet --------------------------- Is that correct? If yes, then everyone who doens't have time/skills/will to made their own tattoos will be more limited than today. And also I can imagine that as source of many confusions on users side. They can even blame the tattoo creators, because they will not understand how it works, like "I bough your tattoo and I want my money back, because its broken, doesn't work with my feet".

    Thats easier to say than to do. I prefer less known small brands - in other words skins I didn't see 50 times every day on Flickr because they are majority brands with tons of bloggers - and those small creators are very often people who don't make it as business, its more like side hobby for them. So they have limited time to create. Currently I changed skin (after more than year with the old one) and I wear unknown brand which provide only catwa + maitreya + omega. The omega has no issues, so I still can use Slink feet with no problem. But for the future I can't expect the creator will have so much time to provide all versions, when they don't do that now. In other words, to step out of crowd and to wear smaller brands will be probably harder than today, or more limited in choices of tattoos etc.

    Oh wow, 50 layers is great. I remeber we got 5 (I think) in old times. So answer 1 makes me happy. Answer 2 not so much - a lot of creators will not bother to make new tattoos with appliers at all and if they will do, probably not for minority brands, so there will not be way how to use them then. Anywas thanks for the answers.

    This is exactly what I fear and why I asked - see above. No option for combination of body brand A + foot brand B (and even + hands brand C). As CoffeeDujour already said, it will force us customers to be creative and combine system skins with older appliers and/or nail fix tattoos. Or to put in the trash all meshes (apparel and jewellery) made for different brands and to wear "clear" combo of one brand only. I'm really not sure if it will be on customer's side easier than to buy appliers and click on the HUDs.

    Thank you for the answer, but it actually brings more questions. Lets say I will have system full body tattoo (feets and hands included) or feet/hand tatoos. I will use 1/ system skin for body + system tattoo nail fix for hands and feet, will it be compatible with the decorative tattoos as well? 2/ system skin for body + skin appliers for foot and hands (because for the skin tattoo nail fix won't be available) - will that work witht he decorative tattoo? As semi-fantasy avatar I wear sometimes hand/foot tattoos and in same time I need to keep my older mesh foot for some older Slink-only jewellery or fantasy add-ons (as claws), so I feel limited in my choices. I'm not sure if BOM will make it easier or more complicated than it is today.

    The issue is nothing new, I already experienced that with Omega "universal" appliers. With the appliers I had same issue as Chellynne - with nails on hands, once even with bellybutton, I got two of them, one "3D" on the mesh body, and on another spot one "2D" on the skin. It made me think that "universal" skins in some cases don't work, if they weren't made for specific bodyparts/brands, they can have those issues. And that makes me to ask - will be with system skins possible to combine mesh bodyparts from different brands? For the instance Maitreya body + Vista hands + Slink foot? Today its not problem, if they don't work properly with Omega, its possible to use separate appliers for each part. So nobody is forced to wear hands from same brand as body if they prefer another brand. Or to delete all older shoes made only for Slink foot, etc.

    Eye Problem, Please HELP!

    I think itd more mesh head issue, than problem of specific skin. I experinced that myself with different skins (brands) and different Catwa heads. Maybe more creators made make-up fixes for that, I'm familiar with only one, its from Izzie Button (she made them not only for Catwa, but also for Logo and Lelutka, so I guess, Catwa isn't the only head with this problem): I guess it was made for pictures with closed eyes. With eyes opened the inner area around eye will be probably too light and wont look good - I think this is exactly the reason why most of skins skins have the area darker (even bare skins with no makeup). So I beleive thats not "wrong skin", its there for reason, sadly the mesh eyelids is hard to make look good in both states - it looks good open with darker skin around OR closed with lighter "bare" skin around. Your screenshot looks like you have Catwa lashes off in the Catwa master hud - make them visible and find some nice lashes applier, it will partly "hide" the issue and then it will probably look still acceptable as long as you aren't about to take close portrait with closed eyes. (I'm not creator myself, so this is just my personal opinion based on observation).

    No, its purely adv for MP shopping, linked with the part of the MP (landscaping). I found screentshot, so i can show you: https://gyazo.com/fd527b6f1b51fcaf938b87845658ea07 There is only my name on it, thats all. Is that helpul? I don't believe so. The screenshot was taken on MP at August 2017. Original pic was uploaded on Flickr and added in the group at February 2013 https://www.flickr.com/photos/loverdag/8484641123/in/album-72157632797159336/ It so old, that I would not want it linked together, I beleive I have better pictures to show today, than back at 2013.

    I think you still can try to send the flickrmail, maybe at least to get explanation why you are banned. Well, I would not be really surprised if you will never get answer ... but at least you can try. Anyways - point of view from the other side - I was member of the group back at 2012 or so and I was there for few years, then I stopped to feel comfortable with the "you give us unlimited rights" rule, so I left, but i didn't remove my pictures from the group pool. I don't remember when I left but it must be years ago. And last year one of mine old pictures was used as headline pic for Marketplace. It was landscape picture of beach, LL added red price tags to the shown objects (stones, waves ...) and some advertising text. I felt it as "punisment" for ever being member of the group and it made me even more sure I dont wan't to participate on "community advertisings" anymore ... My point is, you didn't have a choice, you were removed and banned, but not everyone see as honor to have their work used as LL advertising ...it was not fair to you, but maybe is not so bad to be out...? Esp. when you dont like how LL treat you about that, do you really want to give them your work to use it for free...? (Those are more rhetorical questions, its my personal approach, I know thats not general and doesn't work for everyone.)

    Thats not clearly said like that. Non-Pro should not link their marketplace (aka "shopping carts links"), thats correct. But there is said nothing about restriction of logos in pictures etc. Esp. if the picture is not clearly "vendore picture" showing only the dress (the product) but when its there entire scene, for the instance dancing avatars in the club - I'm not lawyer or anyhting, but I beleive to add logo of brand who made their dresses or to add logo of the club doesn't collide directly with the restiction for non-Pro. "If you have a free account and don’t have a Flickr Pro account, you may not link directly to a shopping cart, checkout page, or pricing pages on other sites, and you may not list prices on your Flickr photo descriptions." https://www.flickr.com/help/guidelines I beleive the restriction should be seen as "don't use Flickr as your e-shop to sell products directly from there" and you pushed it a little too far in extreme. There is not said non-Pro aren't allowed to add links to blogs or other pages. As long as the blog itself does NOT contain the prices or shopping carts, its not restricted. -------- (And OP talked about rules of the SL group, not about general Flickr rules BTW.)

    I agree, there is great grey area also between safe and moderate and the guidlines doesn't help at all. I remember when male blogger got set his account as "moderate" while there was no nudity at all. No official explanation of course, so they put "unofficially" together it was for picture of him topless and wearing jeans with low waiste - when it shows "too much" bodyhair in this area, its probably supposed to be "moderate". I would never guess that ....

    Yes, to comment DOF, while they were talking about bans ...it had nothing to do with that. People can like it or not, but its never reason for ban.

    I mean "content type". You are right its "photo" not "photography". But there is more than the 3 you mentioned, probably depends on platform/app used to acess Flickr. I see those 3 in Win/web Uploader for my own pictures and more of them I see as group admin in the group settings (on same platform) - so I guess if I got more in the group, users must have option to set them somehow, even when I don't have it myself in my Uploader. Not sure what you mean as "key word", I don't have such a thing in Win Uploader. If you mean "tags" - they became messed up when Yahoo added broken auto-tags, so I'm not sure if or how much they are really used today. But this is already off topic.
