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.
This journal is a permanent account and as such has free time forever. You cannot give extra paid time to permanent accounts.
At some point long ago, it used to give you ∞+3 or something like that.
Ditto...I would love to give my extension to someone else who was affected.

i'd do this as well.
We can't offer an extension to Permanent Accounts, not even to share - but I do believe that as limits and other items are reviewed over year we'll be giving some extra love to Permies to show appreciation that way.
Ooh, that's nice to know at some point, Marta. Thanks for the information (however far off it may be.)
Thanks...my account is permanent too and I understand how you can't give us more time...but an extra user pic might be nice ^^
OTOH, I know the DDoS attack was not your fault or responsibility to give us anything for something out of your control. LJ is one of the only services I can get that's not blocked by a firewall at work, so the outtages are painful...there's nothing else to "waste time" with...LOL!
I second the request for an extra userpic. :D
Definitely good to know. Thanks for all the hard work! :)
Oh good. It's nice to see that the permanent account holders aren't slanted. Granted, we all know "permanent" means as long as El Jay is alive, so it would be nice to see some type of perk for us, rather than paid members getting all the consolation prizes.
Ah, that's nice to hear - I look forward to it! Thank you so much for all of the hard work :)
I'm sorry to hone in here, but I have seen you guys give love to the Permanent account user's, being a paid account user myself. You just got through giving them a boat load of extra user pics not too long ago. And, while you guys were doing that, the paid user's didn't even get one thing at all. I can tell you from my own personal opinion and from talking to a few friends of mine who are paid account users, that we would have rather been given more user pics instead of this three day extension. So, I feel like I've watched over the years being a member and being a paid user, the permanent accounter holders get a little bit more love than the paid users who still have to pay for everything, even when you guys are calling them perks. I'm just sayin', that's all. It does get to be frustrating a bit.

Oh really, no shit? Paid account users have to pay to get extra things, while people who forked over $200 for a permanent account get the odd perk? How blasphemous. How dare LJ give extra things to the people who handed over enough money for 6 - 7 years of paid time all in one go?! Disgraceful. It's not logical in the least.
I don't know, it may be just me, but something tells me that you're missing one of the crucial points to actually having a permanent account.
Thank ye kindly!
I agree, us perm members pay the most, and get boned the hardest it seems.
In 100 years you'll have paid less than paid members.
And by the time you finish reading this, that'll be a second closer. Now maybe two.
Yes! I lost time as well...I learned about the DoS attack becuase Facebook went down a few times as well, and was up before LJ came back up. It would be nice if we could either donate our time to someone else, or get a vgift voucher.
Edited to add: Or as others have mentioned, even more UserPcs..as I have actually filled all of mine (A feat I honestly thought was impossible). It seem the more you use the more you need..they are wonderful perks!
Or better yet...can we have a way to organize our Userpics? Like the link list, keep the keywords section but be able to switch the order in which they are displayed! (For instant all pics by the same creator/community can be put together, or alphabetical order, etc).
