Free account time [May. 2nd, 2001|04:57 pm]
Paid Members

paidmembers

[bradfitz]
All paid members now have 30 days of free credit to their accounts, in light of all the downtime. To apply it, visit:

http://www.livejournal.com/paidaccounts/credit.bml

We've said it a billion times, but one day we're going to get everything working smoothly. Until then, we don't deserve to take your money.

Update: I just accidentally reset it ... the 6 people that had already redeemed their credit now have credit again, but I don't know who. Guess it's your lucky day. :-)

Update 2: Spread the news of this, if you will ... I'd rather not spam 2,000 people. I will in a few days if a sizable number of active users with paid accounts haven't picked them up.

Thanks for the offer, but I think I'll skip the free time, Brad. The nature of the net is that sometimes things don't work. If not taking that 31 days helps continue LJ in any small way, that's fine by me.

Thanks......

Hey there, I'm fairly new here...I truly love Lj, a little down time is no big deal for me. I think what Brad & friends offer us here is way more than they get in return! Thanks for the 30 day offer, I'll pass. BTW--if you've been to yahoo lately, now that's some SeRiOuS DoWn TiMe! :-

Woo...good idea, Brad.

Just one minor point: what about those of us that purchased permanent accounts? Can't we get a bonus of some sort?

Considering some of us permanent account people (myself and my step-mother included) got paid accounts before getting permanent ones...

Still, good idea :P

Thanks Brad. I took the credit, but I'll probably end up renewing before my time is up anyway.

Once again, thanks for all your hard work. Downtime or not, livejournal is exceptional. It's a pleasure being here.

WOW!!! Brad, that's awfully generous. I hope that doesn't cut into the budget too much.

I'm bummed some people think LJ should run @ 100% efficiency, 100% of the time. When I bought my account to help out, I knew it was going to take time for servers be bought and installed, etc... Even now, I would like the directory up but I know you guys are doing what you can to fix it. It can be a bit of a bummer when LJ is down or slow but that's life. You guys aren't getting paid to sit all day and work on this. 3 of you are getting *some* money to help out but you still have school, homework, etc.. to do.

I want you to know that I really appreciate all you have done for LJ.

If you do find that this free month will cut into costs, let me know. I'll see what I can do to pay for some free accounts (which I'll pay for at some point, but if I know you guys need the money sooner than later, I'll pay sooner).

Thank you Brad for giving this to your paid account members. I did have to say something funny about it.

When I read the page, and it said *if* I wanted this time that I should press the button, for a moment I thought, "What paid account member is going to say NO?" :P

Thanks again Brad! *hug*

"Until then, we don't deserve to take your money"

Then again, I was an early adopter for two and a half months before I got my paid account - I feel I've cheated you out of two and a half months of revenue, and as such, couldn't possibly accept this kind gift. I still owe you :o)

ooh, neeeefty!

you guys rock... *grin*

i work for an ISP, so i understand all too well that downtime is a part of the package. i also understand that positive feedback is too few and farbetween. so, lemme say this now...

you guys are awesome... in my experience, the troubleshooting support has been remarkably quick and incredibly helpful. for that and a whole slew of other things, i have to say that you guys kick uber ass. :D
