Seeing as during the DDOS thing, I was blocked from the site for about two days (which was very frustrating, even if it wasn't your guys' fault), this is extremely welcome. Thanks, Livejournal. ♥
Also, indulge my curiosity: what is the permanent account message?
This journal is a permanent account and as such has free time forever. You cannot give extra paid time to permanent accounts.
Cool. I have a permanent account, but I've spread the word!
This is great, thank you!
Hey! Thanks for working so diligently on getting the problem solved!
Thank you very much for doing this, you really didn't have to!
I clicked the link, but I'm not sure it worked *blush*
This is very generous of you. Thank you :)
Thanks so much! I won't take the extension, as this really was not your fault at all, but the gesture of good will is much appreciated.
I was out for over 24 hours on Friday, August 7 until Saturday evening, August 8. I have a permanent account, so cannot take advantage of this offer - - and that's ok, really. I want to let you know that it wasn't just for "one hour". It was very confusing because I knew others were getting on, and I was getting some notifications. I called to check to see if it was my server, but it was not. So -- all this was quite odd. Then LJ came back as mysteriously as it left -- and then read as to the reason.
The "one hour" they mention is the time the entire site was down when the attack started, that is, the outage that affected all users. What you experienced were the connection problems they mention that happened during the time when they were fighting off the attack - those affected only some users in varying degrees and at different times.
Whoa, thank you so much! :D
a few times i couldn't access the site but nothing that was a significant inconvenience. so i won't take the extension, but i sincerely appreciate the offer.
that's nice. my account just expired yesterday, so this helps.
Wow, this is great. I honestly haven't expectd anything like this, so...
THANK YOU, LJ!!!
Thanks for making the gesture, it's appreciated.
Thank you so much for the gift, lj! It is very very much appreciated. <3
THANK YOU! Much love to you all! *MWAH!*
