Chef Subcluster 8 Paid Time Reimbursement [Jul. 10th, 2004|04:29 pm]
Paid Members


If you haven't been following lj_maintenance (recent maintenance announcements), we're offering another reimbursement for users who have been affected by the most recent Chef cluster moves:

...we'd like to apologize to users on Chef subcluster 8. For those users on this cluster with paid accounts, we would also like to offer you a one month extension of paid account time. If you have been affected by these problems, you can claim a free month of paid time here:


The claim tool will work for the next week [Correction: 2004-07-10 - 2004-07-17]. If you have friends who were affected and don't read this journal, let them know. If your account has expired in the last 2 days, you can buy a new one, then claim your extension when your paid account is active.

For this to apply you must:
  • Be a paid user when you use the reimbursement page
  • Be on Chef subcluster 8
  • Not be suspended, deleted, etc

w00t. thanks guys.

i do find it amusing, though, that the entry that got eaten for a while there was the exact entry in which I was all RAR over having to reset my preferences and personal info every time I re-logged into LJ, and I was asking my friends if any of them were having the same problem. ^^;

It's probably useless to ask this here, but my account appears to have lost anything posted during the maintenance. Is the loss permanent?

check out lj_maintenance -- they've got a link to a recovery tool for the entries we lost during the past few days.

Um yeah, I'm on that subcluster. My paid account just expired on the 7th, but I've had some problems before my account expired including some of my entries not posting, and also some of my entries randomly deleting, as well as some comments either disappearing completely, or the text going away. Is there anyway you guys can restore my entries/comments or give me that month free time since my account expired before I saw this?

I might have missed this, but weren't there supposed to be free months for eveyone that used to have invite codes? Whatever happened to that?

They let you trade the invite codes in for 'LJ cash'. And with that, you could buy a few extra months.

Sorry for those on subsector 8, but at least they are getting a reimbursement! I'm on subsector 7 and I have been having horrible problems with LJ for at least two weeks now! I want my reimbursement, also. :(

Two things:

1. Like many others who have posted I'm on Chef sub. 7 and also had problems most of the day Saturday. I'm not asking for reimbursement but it wasn't just one group that was affected, it was a lot of us.

2. A lot of the posts seem to be of the "where am I?" variety. Maybe it would be easier to post an FAQ with the "where am I" link rather than just posting it when there's trouble. Most of us don't care where we are as long as it works, but it might be easier for us if it's easier to know we're in a trouble spot.

so the rest of chef hasn't been effected? because i'm on subcluster 6, and my journal's been offline or read only a lot in the past week or so. is that unrelated?

Where would I direct a question on time stamping?

Mainly because when I post, the date says that I'm trying to post for August when the number in fact shows, July....but it won't let me post until I change it to an 8?
