LiveJournal's new notifications system [Sep. 5th, 2006|03:02 pm]
Paid Members


Today we launched LiveJournal's new notifications system to Paid members.  The notifications system will soon be launching to all LJ users, but we wanted to give Paid account holders a chance to use it early.  (Permanent account holders already have been using it in a sneak preview, so you can hit them up for pointers!)

With the new system, you can set up notifications for all types of things including when someone adds you as a friend.  Go to the Manage Settings page to set your preferences.  Also look for the icon in profile pages and journals to track updates and changes.  Just check in to your Message Center to keep up to date on the LJ activity that's most important to you.

Paid and Permanent account holders have the most subscriptions available and also have the extra options to get notified when a user uploads a new userpic and when users add new comments to individual comment threads.  We'll also be expanding the types of subscriptions that are available only to Paid users over the coming months.  Visit the FAQ to find out the different limits and options for each account level.

Please feel free to spread the word to other Paid account holders you know.  The engineers are still working out bugs in this complex system, but if you find something you think we should know about please leave your feedback on this post in lj_releases.

Just curious. If I 'track' someone's thread/post/whatever, will this person know that I am doing that?

Finally! Thanks a bunch!

That Message Center seems handy... but wouldn't it be 10 times more practical if one could integrate it into "My LJ"?

If I may ask an OT question...

Why are Paid/Perm users now being forced to see "sponsored communities" on the homepage while logged in, which is just a sneaky way for a company to advertise on LJ with an account, when we were promised we'd never have to see ads less than 5 months ago?

I'm a paid member, and I'm not having that problem. I saw the sponsored communities after I logged out, but as soon as I logged in again they were no longer there. Just the spotlight ones.

Yep, it's me again. Am I overlooking something, or is there currently not an option to get a notification when someone replies to a comment?

Someone replied to a comment I made on a post I'm not tracking, and while I got the email notification I didn't get any other thing in the message centre.

Correct: currently, there's no way to get a notification when someone replies to a comment you posted (or an entry you post in a community) without subscribing to that comment/entry. However, we'll be adding "global" subscriptions in the near future, like, "Notify me when someone replies to a comment I post" or "Notify me when someone replies to an entry or comment I post", something like that. :)

How do I remove my "paying member" status and get my money back? (Or is there a way to absolutely block this "feature" from my journal and all my comments?)

2 questions:
1) if someone subscribed to comments of my post and I changed security, limiting post visibility to specific group. And the someone does not belong to this group. Will he receive comment notifications anyway?
2) I subscribed to notifications about changes in "friend-of" list. Is there any way to block notifications from banned users when he friends me? There is some automatic scripts running over LJ that friends and unfriends me (and other people randomaly) every day and this getting annoying. I banned him, but this didn't help - I receive notifications anyway, despite he does not appear in "friend-of" list.

Disapointed by Livejournal!

Hello, sorry if this is the wrong place to put it but I am kinda angry with the news of live journal doing more ad's and I wanted to clearly make sure livejournal knows of my unhappyness with what they are doing.

I've been a paid user for a few years now, and I pay because I like the exclusivness of features you get with paying. What I have to ask is why am I paying if I will just get features for free that I am supposed to get with paying? In other words I think live journal now that you don't need my money with these sponsored content I can cancel my sponsorship right? that is what you are saying to me. I mean why am I paying if I can get things free now? Also the idea of me seeing ads even if I pay sucks, just the idea that I will see ads while being a payed member makes me sick enough to cancel my membership and look for a new site to do journaling through. I will give you time Livejournal, but look if I see one ad happen while being a paid member I am leaving!!!!!!!!!!!! LIVE JOURNAL you have disapointed me and ticked me off!!!!

Could someone tell me how I can get a Permanent account. I am a LJ whore and I love it, I have also been a paid account holder for close to 2 years.
