As you are the people who ensure the survival of our service, we'd like to know what you think we should be dedicating our project time to. There are a few big projects in the works but only a handful of people to work on them, so what happens is our time gets stretched over all projects.

So, if you're willing, please prioritize[1] the features you would like to see us working on the most:

(Legend: 1: higher priority - 5: lower priority)

  • </a>S2 is the new journal template system that's been in the works for quite a while. The core of the service is available to use at http://www.livejournal.com/customize/ , but S2 isn't near release quality just yet.

  • </a>The statistics package/service is basically a traffic monitoring tool that we've been planning for a long time. We've laid out and implemented the foundation for the service, but we need to write the user interface and define the settings available to each journal.

  • The local friends page server is a program that would install on your computer and allow you to have faster access to your friends page while saving us bandwidth costs.

  • The event subscription notification service would allow you to "subscribe" to arbitrary comment threads and journal entries, saving you the need to constantly reload comment pages and scour for new additions.



[1] Of course our highest priority is to ensure that the site is stable for all users, but that doesn't mean we can't devote time to our other projects as well.

I cannot fill out the poll despite being not only paid, but permanent. It would seem that I am not recognised by paidmembers as a err member. Do you think you could fix that for me, please and thank you?

Local Friends lists, OH YES, offline reading and response would be great.

With what some folks do with the current styles, I'd be just as happy if you didn't give them any more ways to use horrid color combinations and blinking text or backgrounds.

Offline reading and response is cool and all but kinda useless to those of us with a broadband connection that are connected 99.9999% of the time.

Since we're leaving comments regarding polls, it's somewhat apropro to say that alternative graphics for the polls would be nice.

This said, I've never once created a poll, so I'm not too sure what the general consensus is.

Oooh, yes. Nice idea! Not everyone's journals play nice with the red graphics! I had a purple colored journal for the longest time... and the red just looked butt ugly with it! *goes back to edit her poll responce*

A local friends page server would be cool, but only if there is a linux, mac and windows client.

/me thinks that this would be difficult to keep up to date.

Would someone please explain to me the process of authorization when other users add you to their friends list?

I'm a little confused (maybe I haven't read the info pages enough) as to how someone can easily add another to their friends list, without some form of consent by the other user. I bring to your attention a matter recently, where after a 'spam war' - the other user felt it was appropriate to 'steal' my friends list.
This of course meant that he had access to the others' friends only posting.

Is there meant to be some way of restricting people from just adding you to their friends listing?
If not, why hasn't this matter been brought to light before?

I believe you're making an erroneous claim in your comment with regard to access to secured posts.

When someone adds a person to his or her friends list, they do not by that means gain any access that they would not otherwise have. It's when YOU, or others, choose to add people back that you grant them additional access.

This means that no one can get access to any friends-only post without the consent of the person posting it.

It's a different issue when people feel that there are instances of harassing behavior involving people adding others to their friends list. In some cases these bothersome additions are related to violations of the Terms of Service, and in that case the Abuse team can get involved. However, simply adding a person to your friends list, with or without their consent, is not against the Terms of Service and is not harassing behavior.

The idea of requiring mutual consent been discussed extensively and my impression is that it isn't likely for a lot of reasons - perhaps check the memories of suggestions if you're curious.

I have no idea how many people will actually read this comment, but a Public Service Announcement:

If you think you have a good suggestion for the "other" option, look at the Suggestions page and see if you're interested in writing it up as a suggestion for others to discuss and vote on. Keep in mind that many things have already been suggested multiple times, so please check the memories and recent suggestions before adding a new one.


(*ducks to avoid the wrath of routine readers of suggestions who are worried about an influx*)

Had it been done that way people would just say "work on everything". I don't see it working any better.

Doh, I should have entered this under 'other', but I forgot until after I'd voted...

A while back I was thinking of writing a text-mode client, mostly for reading (with threaded email program-like interface), but apparently there's no API for accessing the actual friends posts/comments.
It would be cool if there was. (Links/lynx isn't sufficient, because a proper client should be doing the updates more efficiently than just reloading, and should be able to remember where in your friends list you'd got to, when you're catching up.)
Most of the client API seems to be around posting, but I read much more than I post.

I'm noticing that a lot of the "other" suggestions deal with clients. One that sticks out right away is "birthday notification". Perhaps that would be part of a style sheet, as I wouldn't want birthday notification on my friends page or anything. Lochjournal is working fine for me in terms of birthday notifications. =)
