Thanks soooooooooo much for offering free v-gifts when the lj servers are already slow and balky, it really helped to COMPLETELY BREAK LJ. Thanks!!!
I'm with a lot of the users here. These free Vgifts are... fine, but I would much rather have a site that actually -works- for me, especially since I'm paying for it. It took me over 3 minutes just to get this page to load. This is getting ridiculous.
You are definitely not the only one.
I found it maddening that the Status.livejournal.com page (which is hosted off-site so that it'll still be up when LJ is down) mentioned the site slowness... but then pointed me to an LJ_Maintenance post that's inaccessible due to poor site performance. And, of course, there was no contact info for LJ, so I couldn't e-mail them to ask them what was up. I shouldn't have to rely on vague rumors from Twitter to find out why LJ keeps crashing this month.
I sincerely hope that we'll be compensated with free time, because "free V-Gifts" is not really an acceptable response to "site does not work, LJ staff unavailable for comment".
First things first. Fix Livejournal ASAP, then get some kind of reward.
How about a cat instead?
Have you fixed the Poll notification problem yet?
This is also the time today that I've been able to access the site. I think silly gifts should wait, and you should compensate the paid membership for the poor site performance.
Yeah, being able to load my journal in less than a couple of minutes would be a nice gift.
Really? Down for the better part of half a day, shoddy connectivity on the best of days for the past few weeks, and paid users are refunded in... puppy pixels? Not too late, LJ, but far too little.
How about instead of cuddly puppies, you post some real information about the 4 week server problem which has never been acknowledged except in a place most people don't read on a regular basis?
I'm going to see this as a separate thing going on rather than as compensation for the site performance here, since the post didn't say anything about it being a compensation. =P
Thanks for the v-gifts! I would've liked kitties so much better though. =p
I can never see myself getting a paid account here again. It isn't worth it.
Check this out, with the copying and the pasting:
Whoa, I just saved myself 99 cents!
Oh, also, I do not have a paid account and was still able to send off 6 puppies for free. I'd try more to see how far I could push it, but v-gifts are a waste when the site is never running.
Really? Sorry guys, but this is stupid. A fine example of why I let my paid subscription expire after eight years of loyalty.
Thank you - it's a nice idea.
Puppies are well and fine, but what's up with LJ being pretty much unaccessible for the past 2-3 days? A friend of mine said they can access the website fine, except for my LJ... I can access the website, communities etc. when not logged in, but as soon as I log into my account the website slows down or in most cases doesn't respond at all. Did I just miss a note about maintenance downtime or something? I thought paid members had a faster working LJ. :(
Because we want images of puppies when the site doesn't load.
No...Must resist the cuteness...
Seriously? Free puppies but nothing about the mess that LJ has been for the last several weeks? Umm, how is this good business sense? Or do you all think you have enough users that pay that are soooo loyal they'll continue to pay? Is that the reason why you haven't given any sort of explanation about what is going on (other than the tech forum which often has so much tech talk a lot of the users can't understand it)?
In this economy, it would be nice for those of us putting money in LJ's bank account if LJ would respond in kind by giving us at least a free month of service. At this point that's the only thing that's going to give me a reason to renew.
