damnit i meant "what is it"
and my coment didnt finish
i think i'd only be interested in buying more space if we had the ability to upload file types other than just pictures and phone posts.
phone posts should be in mp3 form, I say.
I say that's not a bad idea, go for it :3
good luck with that! xoxox
What? Does LJ delite our old entrys because we take up room?
Really no significant need for it personally...
And for the record, I like waffles... alot...
mmmm fruit stuffed waffles from Ihop
I've got so many pictures uploaded, and I'm still no where near 100 MB. So I don't think I'd ever need any more space.. But if I ever did I would definitely buy more. :)
I wouldn't buy more from them, at this point I'd just go off site hosting somewhere for a much better price. What a con.
The pricing seems a little wonky...
Let's take the very basest of plans, so we're not complicating things with volume discounts.
2 months, 250 megabytes, $10
That works out to 2 cents per meg per month.
Your 2 month paid account costs $5 and includes 100 megabytes. At 2 cents per meg per month, that means $4-- fully 80%-- of the fee just goes to a feature that I would bet a very small amount of paid users actually utilize.
Therefore, it seems to me there are two possibilities... Either you're charging people more than you should be by charging them for a service they probably don't need, or you're charging to much for disk space. I'll be the first to say that Livejournal is an absolutely bargain, even at $5 for 2 months (and I get the $25 for 12 months option), so it seems to me that you guys are charging way more than you should be for disk space.
Of course, this is just my two cents, and I should also probably mention that there is little chance of me purchasing an upgrade in disk space regardless of the price as I just don't need it.
No I totaly agree with you. Thats alot of money for such little space.
I pay around that for my domain name, 10 gigs of space and 40 gigs of bandwidth a month.
The part that confuses me is you say phone posts, scrap book pictures and user pictures are hosted in this space you give us to use.. but many of us pay extra for user pictures.. so why is that a part of this deal?
Well, this site does have to make money. I mean, the things a paid user get aren't really that much more costly than a free user. Styles take up a negligble amount of disk space, for example.
Is there any chance we can be able to use this space for more user pictures? Because I know I'm not alone in wanting more icons...
That is so true! I've had many a discussion with fellow paid users and we agree that we would pay more for more icon space.
