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.

The Apple client, Mail.app, does not have a per-sender preference setting for plain-text/HTML. It can be changed per-message, but that really doesn't help ;/

I appreciate the effort that went into the multi-part messages, but the ability to choose one or the other on LJ's side is likely going to be an oft-requested feature in the near and far future.

A quick googling finds this page, which has the Secret Incantation you can recite to force all mail to plaintext. Not sure if that solves the problem (if you only want LJ plaintext, or if you want everything plaintext), but that's all I've got for now. (I've made a note to bring up the issue of multipart vs. text/HTML, though.)

Thank you for the link! I despise html in email :-)
