As many of you may already know, LiveJournal experienced about an hour of downtime on Thursday, August 6th due to a DDoS which affected LiveJournal and several other web service providers. In the days following that event some users may have noticed some site slowness or experienced connection problems as we worked on blocking "bad" traffic and making sure that all of you could access the site. We want to apologize for any inconvenience or frustration this caused.

Although the circumstances were out of our control, we greatly appreciate the patience and support you've shown us over the past week or two as we worked to mitigate the effects of this attack. For those of you who support us by owning a Paid Account, we'd like to express our appreciation by extending your Paid Time for a few days. Anyone who was an active Paid member as of any time Thursday, August 6, 2009 is eligible for a 3 day extension of Paid time. You can claim this extension anytime from now until 12:01 GMT on September 10th.

The extension isn't automatic so that people who weren't affected can have the option to choose whether or not they want an extension. You can choose to claim your extension by going to this page: http://www.livejournal.com/pay/claim.bml

I have a permanent account, and I was blocked for a couple of days.

Can I give an extension to a friend, or maybe a free vgift voucher?

I'd take the vgift voucher, though I admit the message I got when I clicked the link brought me a laugh.

Won't be using the extension (haha, it makes my icons expire earlier than my paid account in December which drives me nuts) but I definitely appreciate the gesture. Thank you. :)

I wasn't affected so I won't be asking for the extension but I think it's nice that you are offering.

Hiya stranger, how are you doing? Have you moved on to a different fandom, or you just don't get so much online time nowadays?

Since the 6th of August happened to be my birthday, I think I'll consider this a birthday gift from LJ. :D

Thank you, LJ folks.

Why are you so awesome??

Thank you very much! This comes around right at the same time I'm wondering how to pay for this. I appreciate the extra three days since you are just SO AWESOME!

My service wasn't affected, so I won't claim it, but thanks so much for doing this when it's the DDOS scum who are really at fault!
