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.

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!!!!
