Paid Time Reimbursement [Jun. 30th, 2004|05:58 pm]
Paid Members


In light of the rough periods we've experienced during the past couple of weeks, outgrowing our network topology & being attacked in a Distributed Denial of Service, we thought it only fair to give back some of your paid time.

Those of you who had a paid account during the month of June are eligible for an instant 2 weeks of free service, even if your paid account has since expired. Alternatively, if you have plans to purchase 6 or 12 months of service during the next week, you're eligible to receive 2 additional months of service for free. Both offers can be found for the next 7 days on the Paid Time Reimbursement page, and they apply to any eligible account you manage (communities, etc).

We apologize for the recently spotty service, but as always we're working hard to overcome these challenges.

We'd like to clarify that the 2 month option is only available for payments that have been fully processed, so it can take a while for the reimbursement page to update with the proper option. If you only see the 2 week option on the reimbursement page, either refresh the page or wait until your payment has totally cleared (Our credit card processing should be instant, but PayPal payments can sometimes take hours to clear).

Note: We're still running into some issues checking for accounts that have expired in the past month, and there are still some instances where people are getting "you are ineligible" errors. We're working as fast as we can to fix these problems, so please be patient. I'll update this post again when I have more information.

Update: We've made a couple of changes for eligibility checks, so if you were getting the "you are ineligible" error before you should try again.

Re: *echos Halomouse and Justhuman*

But see this really isn't affecting you, so it's more about the paid users who are actually having to purchase time because they aren't permanent accounts or early accounts.

And like I said in my comment I probably misunderstood something myself, sometimes my obvservations is a little off and I need a little bit of clarity. My whole point is that it shouldn't matter when you purchased your paid account time before or after the problems started occurring with LJ recently (because in the past six months LJ's been down quite a bit) or if you only purchased two months paid time as opposed to 6 or 12 months incraments--I think all of the paid user's should be able to either decide whether or not they want to use the two weeks free and call it cool or decide to buy more (whatever the icraments they choose without it being specified) and still get the bonus offer of two months free paid time.
