Well I didn't know it would be midnight on the 5th GMT that it expired, maybe you could make it clearer next time, I thought it would be midnight on the 6th.
Seriously. That's such a shit thing to do.
Is there any way those of us paying members who were online and trying to use LJ at the time of the power outage but were too busy to get online (or out of town) to read this notice - which was posted a full week later - can still claim an extension? The power outage isn't the fault of Livejournal, but nevertheless it's pretty shabby that when I wanted to be using LJ it was unavailable, and yet when I wasn't online using LJ I missed a chance to claim an extension.
Yeah, it would be really nice of lj to give us different time zone references. It's August 5 here, so why can't I claim my paid time?
Doubt that I'll be renewing my account.
Between not getting to claim it because you can't get your shit straight on times, and the renewed fandom witchhunt, you guys ain't getting no more money out of me.
Right on, brother, right on!
uhhh its saying that the time frame has expired....but its saying that its active until today. i'm trying to claim it today!!
wow, it's only august 5th here, and yet i can't claim the offer.
made of fail, lj, made of fail.
... I love you lady. I really do.
We will NOT be silenced.
Lovely. I come back from holiday to find that I have missed 3 free days by 18 hours. Thanks, once again. Brad, I think you could be right to be bailing out.
This is a bunch of crap, it should just be automatic.
I'm on LiveJournal every day, but didn't see the news because it's in a tiny box on the side of the front page now. I didn't even know there was a news update, let alone a three day extension, until someone on my friend's list started talking about it.
Now I see why the front page changed so the news is faaaarrr off to the side and unnoticeable; so we miss shit like this until it's too late. THX GUIEZ.
How come I never know about this until it's too late?
The chance to claim back time we've lost on LJ should not be deadlined! Not all of us notice the news on time, and not everyone has access to the internet everyday. Unfair, LJ. Unfair.
Nice. My internet wasn't working for a week and I just found this news update. Thanks for the free time I didn't get, even though LJ was down for me for quite a while and I've been a paid member for years.
you guys promised - in emails sent to many LJ members yesterday - that there would be an update on your latest attack on fandom and fanart. that promised update was supposed to be up last night.
it is now almost 5pm PDT and still no update.
and you think this is going to encourage your paid users to continue to give you money? HOW? or buy permanent accounts? NOT A CHANCE IN HELL.
WAKE UP GUYS. EVERY DAY THAT GOES BY WITHOUT *SOMETHING* BEING SAID BY Y'ALL IS MAKING YOUR CASE WORSE AND WORSE AND WORSE.
geez. talk about fuckwits.... seriously: you REALLY think this is a way to run a business? or you truly want fandom GONE?
What did these emails say? Were they sent to our LJ email accounts? Because I don't seem to have received any emails.
And I agree with everything you said.
