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

Most generous of you, since the problem wasn't of your creation.

Thanks...one more reason to love LJ, my favorite social site!

Though it's tempting to click the link, I wasn't affected (as far as I know) so I won't be submitting a claim. Thanks for the offer!

*thumbs up*

Although I think everyone has legit gripes about the way you run this site, gestures like these are very nice reminders of why I've been a paid member almost as long as I've been a member of the site (8+ years)

Thanks :D

I'm glad because I forgot to turn off comment on a post, then waited for a submission granted email, didn't get it until later, and boom 200+ comments in my inbox the next day.

Thanks.

I'm taking this for the account that it affected, since my other one had userpics and those don't an extra three days as well. It'd be nice if this did affect that, though.
