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 :)

This is really nice and professional :)
Well done LJ!
And I don't feel like taking the extension because what happened was beyond the control of LJ

I don't think I was affected but thanks for the offer. I'm not greedy so I won't redeem it.

It's nice to know that you guys even consider compensation let alone offer it. Keep up the good work - it's appreciated :)

Thank you, LJ! Very professional, not to mention generous, especially when you were not at fault here. This attitude is why I am happy to continue supporting you with a paid account.

An hour? Are you kidding me? It was more like 20 hours at least in Europe.

Thank you very, very much. I had several downtimes and loading problems that lasted for hours so I am very happy about this and it shows that you guys care.

I knew there was a reason why I love LJ above all other blogs ;)
