We've got Puppy Love for our paid users! [Apr. 8th, 2010|09:18 pm]
Paid Members



If you have a paid or permanent account, you can send five free cuddly puppies through Monday, April 12th at 4pm, PST! You'll see both the free and the $0.99 puppies displayed until they've scampered off to your friends. Please send only one at a time. In other words, you'll need to complete check-out and start a new order for each fetching puppy. If you're not receiving vgifts (from friends and/or Frank), you may have disabled them. To enable vgifts, visit Edit profile (under Profile), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and check your settings. We wish you oodles of puppy love!

I have v-gifts from a couple of years ago showing on my profile, any idea why that's happening?

How about some free time reimbursement for the really shoddy LJ performance lately?

That's worth more to me than fake puppies.

The servers have been terribly slow for at least a few weeks now.

Heh... most of my Friends list would much prefer kittens (with a few notable exceptions). ;)

HEE, so cute! Thank you, LJ, for offering gifts to your paid users! I love this idea of being able to surprise friends :D.

I don't understand why someone would send this or why you would want to receive them?

Does it make you associate puppies with the person? I think its a sad reflection on the shallowness of your relationship.

Where is the art of conversation?

How often do you talk about puppies? Or go somewhere to look at puppies? Or do anything related to puppies together?

Jesus Christ people, life is more than this...

Putting aside the total pointlessness of this for a moment, it seems that if you send them really fast you can send more than five. (This is a feature, not a bug.)

Instead of being able to send out Vgifts... Can we get LJ worked on first? It's been slow and sluggish for the past week. Thank you very much!

I see two different puppies - but they both cost $0.99 to send. And I have a paid account...

Cute. But seriously some free userpics slots or a couple of weeks of paid time would be more reasonable. If my sub had come up in the past few weeks i definitely would not have renewed.

Agreed. This whole mess is ridiculous. Seriously LJ, you really think puppies is going to help the situation? Get LJ fixed damnit, this is unacceptable, period.

For the record, I haven't seen any LJ issues (speed has been fine for me as a perm user) and hey, I don't want the gifts myself, but a couple of my friends liked it, so why not?

Oh, and thanks LJ.

That's awesome, and I like it, but working on the servers would help more.

Like... y'know, the fact that notifs aren't working right now. Again. *facepalm*

Small compensation for the crap that has been LJ for the past weeks. I'll take some free userpics or free time, instead, please.

Thank you. I think that's cute and I already sent some. I'll choose a puppy over everything else any day.

Some free pixels are not quite the same as having a working service that I am paying for. I've had trouble using LJ for a few days and haven't been able to read my friends' list for most of the past two days.

I would like to remind LJ that I am paying for this.

Agreed. I have been mostly (except for maybe once/twice a day) been unable to access anything on lj for days now. And my subscription is running out next month...

Well the cute puppies distracted me for like... five minutes. Now I'll go back to gnashing my teeth about the bad service, thanks.

I don't use vgifts. I do use the rest of LJ, though, and at least for the past week and a half (for me) it has been mega-frustrating to use.

Personally, I'd rather have a journal which loads quickly and doesn't crash when I attempt to post entries and replies, as it kept doing when I tried to post this reply...

This certainly doesn't make up for the fact that nothing has been working properly for the past few weeks, but I'd still like to send one or two puppies to the dog lovers on my flist. If only the page would load, which it doesn't, no matter how often I try. Oh my...
