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

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).
