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

[ljkrissy]
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.

SO, I like to swap out icons constantly, all 134 of them. At once. Does this mean people will get 134 emails if they are tracking me?

What if I should choose to do this several times a day for say a week, just to spam people's inboxes?

My point is, is there some wayto stem such abuse or is this a fun way to ensure people will not be tracking me if I constantly flood their email with craptastic notifications?

At this point, I don't think you can see if anyone is tracking your usericons, so you wouldn't be able to tell that anyone is even there to spam. Besides, if someone did track your icons and you did things like that maliciously, the person could go and untrack your usericons and not get your emails anymore.

Doesn't really matter if people are tracking em or not, point of the matter is that I do this sort fo thing. If people are tracking me, won't they be getting an insane amount of email?

*shrug* That's their choice, just like it's their choice to keep email notifications on in really heavy-traffic communities. If they don't like it, they can stop tracking it.
