Why I renewed my Flickr account

Last week I got alerted by Flickr that my Pro account would expire soon. This means that I have been using Flickr for 2 years already. Time flies when you are having fun.
This alert started me to think why I should renew my account. Well, here are my reasons:
1/ I love the usability of Flickr! This is how a website should work. It is really so thought-out. There are (almost) never too many clicks to do things you would like to do. And also the sleek, simple, but powerful Flickr Uploadr is such a timesaver for me.
2/ I enjoy the beautiful photos that I come across at Flickr.
3/ Flickr makes it so easy to really trace what your 'friends' are up to. So, I really like the social networking aspect of Flickr.
These three reasons alone make it worth to spend the 47,99 US dollars for the next two years of fun at Flickr for me.
Ofcourse there are some things that annoy me. The two things that come to mind:
1/ The recent move to the Yahoo account system.
2/ The bulk download functionality that still isn't available.
