So what are the chances of...
having support tickets/issues answered by people who can actually understand basic English? I'd rather not have my support request answered than to have it answered by someone who didn't really read it and is only interested in shoving some FAQ at me that does NOT address the problem, and that I have already *stated* in my support request.
I haven't had to file that many support requests, however...every time....EVERY TIME...I do, I get "Oh that's covered in such-n-such FAQ", when it's clearly NOT.
Lastest issue: The time stamp on my comments, whether posted by me or posted by others is off this morning, by 6-7 hours. I'm in Calfornia. That's Pacific time :) You're in Seattle...also Pacific time. With me?
I stated all this in my support request. What did I get back? A link to the FAQ saying that if the time stamp was wrong, it's because it's posting as Pacific time.
If this was a one time occurance, I'd simply write it off....but EVERY TIME I request support or report an issue I go through this. Are you giving something away if people reply to support tickets? Is that it? I hate to bitch, but I also hate to be needlessly frustrated.
I'm waiting for one of your volunteers to suggest I need to reload Windows, and *that* will solve the time stamp problem. In the grand scheme of things, it's really *not* erath shattering. But clearly, something somewhere is "wonky." Silly me...I thought you might want to know.
this isn't the first time time stamps have suddenly gone haywire, just the first time I've reported them. And...the last.
so are you going to say how many people "cut" in front of us and made us wait b/c were not in the all high and mighty "paid" lane?
Nope. YOu should expect to be treated with less benefits and lower service since you're not supporting the site whatsoever. Its how the entire commercial world works. Get used to it.
My day has been made!! All is happy in the world!! :-) Icons, layouts and ousting my free user friends out of the way! Wee!
Thanks so much! As a long time free user (since Oct 2001) who has been a paid user since early 2004, I only regret that I didn't start supporting this site sooner. It's been an asset, despite the occasional ups and downs, and I will never regret the hours that I spent in 2001 sending out emails to paid users with shared interests, begging them for that code so that I, too, could have a LJ ;)
This will probably speed the downloaded clients up, too, right?
Does this express lane affect permanent users too?
If so, is it the same as it is for paid accounts?
If I'm trying to search all livejournal posts in the last hour, and sort by username, using the advanced feature, why won't it work? It just endlessly reloads the search page?
Really, I would have never guessed, seeing how the server is being intolerably slow right now.
Is this working? Because I don't see any of these stat things when I view my page source and everything is loading really slowly. Where in the source is it supposed to be?
holy crap. mad props, homies. mad props. i love being an asshole to free users. that's what it's all about, yo.
just letting you know, i REALLY hate this feature. my parents don't really approve of me having a LJ, so they won't buy me a paid account because i won't show them my journal. there are things in my journal that i would rather die than let them know, so for people like me and/or in my situation, this really doesn't work too well.
just thought you should know.
Make a few public entries, with random crap in it. Make everything else friends only.
When they ask, show them your journal, of course with you logged out.
They see public entries like 'today i had a weird dream about clouds', and 'i hate my computer for such and such reason', and they see that your LJ is no cause for concern.
Why don't they approve of it?
This is exactly what I plan to do with my dad, as you can see from my journal's page. All public entries have really nothing to do with my personal life.

Way to fudge those stats.
I guess that's why it's taking 5 mins to get "Document contains no data." every second page while trying to save all my old posts with comments.
that would explain the lag i've been getting
