I hold Flickr in very high regard for their openness, interaction with the community and the great API. This is also the reason I'm happy to sign up for a pro account vs other services I use heavily (such as Geocaching.com) which are a closed managed community. So I was surprised to find this note in my inbox this morning which appears to be an automated message or at best the staff member simply hasn't looked at the application before criticising and taking action.Hello, The App Garden is a place for software developers to showcase applications they've created. Because your app doesn't appear to fit this description it has been set to private. Your API key is still active and fully functioning , it's just not public in the App Garden. The App Garden is not a place to showcase a personal website or gallery. Please only publicize app pages for applications that you have developed and that are related to the Flickr API. You can review the App Garden guidelines here: http://www.flickr.com/services/apps/about/ Thank you for your understanding. Regards, Flickr Staff
