Paid time extension [Aug. 17th, 2009|03:04 pm]
Paid Members


[Current Mood |gratefulgrateful]

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

Thank you very much! Was blocked from the site for a day, which wasn't even your fault, but your gift is appreciated nonetheless! :)

Well, this is nice. I tend to renew my paid membership a few months ahead of time, so three days plus or minus doesn't really effect me much, but still. The acknowledgment is appreciated, and I'll probably claim mine just for that.

I was barely affected by anything, so I'm not claiming, but it's a very nice gesture and greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks. I think I'm the only one of my friends who was affected. That was so frustrating (though not your fault).

Awesome. Sad to think it will be forgotten the next time folks find an excuse to complain about LJ.

I honestly don't think that this will be necessarily forgotten, as much as people will have legitimate complaints to make at some point down the line. I know I sure have, in the past. Just sayin', is all.

This does perm account holders no good. How about some paid time we could gift to others, or a certificate for a free Virtual Gift?

marta, who is an LJ employee, said something about that here.
