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


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.

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.

Think what they were asking is -- current permanent accounts have 100 as a baseline -- are the old perm accounts going to be upped to 150 too, or only the new ones?

I've been wondering the same thing because I've had a permanent account since the last sale.

Except that Permanent accounts gets as many loyalty userpics as they would get get had they had their account since the beginning, regardless of how long they've actually had the account (which also means that they get a new userpic slot every quarter automatically). Right now it's 100 base + 45 loyalty, and it'll change to 150+45 in December.
