Give More and Permanent Account Sale [Nov. 25th, 2008|03:40 pm]

Hi! This is a quick entry to let you know that LiveJournal will soon be running some of its regular (and not so regular) holiday promotions.
  • Give More. The Give More promotion runs for the entire month of December and it makes your holiday gift of paid time for someone else a little extra special. Not only does the recipient get paid time, they also receive a free userpic upgrade for the same duration of the gifted paid time. If you give someone a year's paid time, for example, they'll also get the userpic upgrade for that year as well. So, the more you give, the more they get. Give to a friend, a soon-to-be-friend, or even surprise someone at random with a bit of holiday cheer.

  • Permanent Account Sale. Would you like to have your Paid Account for life, enjoying all those great features (and more) forever without having to worry about payments ever again? Well, then the Permanent Account Sale is for you! Starting on December 4, we're once again offering the opportunity to buy Permanent Accounts—in additional to all the features of paid accounts, these accounts will include increased storage (from 10 to 15GB) and more userpics (increased from 100 to 150 + up to 44 loyalty userpics). This time around the sale is just for personal journals. If you've been thinking about it or have missed our sales in the past, don't hesitate—the sale only lasts a week and who knows when the next one will be? Act now to make your LiveJournal eternal.

Thanks! Oh, and remember: If you buy a Permanent Account, you can transfer your remaining paid time and userpics to any other LiveJournal user you choose, so that existing paid time won't go to waste.

Would love to but can't. The 28th's paycheck is rent and I don't get paid again until 12 December.

Okay... I have to ask here, among other users who agree that LJ is worth paying for.

...do you believe a permanent account is WORTH $175? That's 7 years of payments at the current rate. Does that seem a little... extreme to any of you? I mean, that's almost as long as LJ has existed at all. They used to cost $100, which was steep enough as is.

I love LJ, but... the cost just seems to outstrip the product.

I wouldn't drop nearly 200 bucks on it, honestly. :\ That's like, 2/3rds of my rent.

Will those who already have permanent accounts be given additional userpics as well?

Yes. When the sale goes live on December 4th, all Permanent Accounts will automatically get the increase in userpics and storage space.

(increased from 100 to 150 + up to 44 loyalty userpics)

Uh, what? I only have 145 userpics, I'm a permanent account users. Am I going to get 150 userpics as the baseline, then add the 44? What's going on with that?

The loyalty user pics (I believe) are given based on how long you have had your account. So you get whatever your account baseline is plus however many loyalty pics your time on lj has earned you.

would we be able to get our comments/notifications emailed to us if we purchase a lifetime account. I have a paid account now and for the past week have not been able to get my notifications.

Man, I should have gotten a Perm account way back when. It would have already paid for itself by now.

Ahh, one of these days. Plus, I could use more userpics!

So, do those of us with existing permanent accounts get the extra 50 userpics, and when?

Given the road LJ has gone down the last couple of years, this does not look like a good long-term investment. So, 'no thanks'. I'd be furious right now if I had bought a Perm. Account in 2003.

And, now that LJ has advertisements on the site, maybe they should reduce costs for content creators instead? I mean, it's only fair since ad revenue isn't being shared.

That's where I fall out - with facebook and myspace eating up...well mostly illerate stupid people, but honestly that is the majority - it's a pretty big risk to think that eljay will still be big in 10 years. That's not even wondering if my friends still use eljay in 10 years...
