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.

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.

Did you guys read the news post about how LJ got blacklisted by some email servers? Are you guys on MSN/Hotmail?

I'm on a university account, and already whitelisted LJ ages ago, and my comment notifications have been running hot and cold... so far I've been getting them all EVENTUALLY, but sometimes they don't show up until hours or days after the fact.

Apparently the hotmail thing was causing a backlog on the rest of the emails. But that is from somewhere in the comments.

I'm on gmail and I've been getting comments, but sometimes they're slow and I get a bunch at once.

Yeah. Going on Week 4 here with no notifications of any kind and "support" has done absolutely NOTHING to resolve it. I own my own server (and email) and LJ is so whitelisted at this point I'd be surprised if it could be recognized from liquid paper.

And this was my exact thought coming over here. Why would I want to pay for something that can't even "support" their product to fix things without some nitwit running around the support boards copy/pasting some FAQ template that has been repeatedly stated to NOT work in the majority of non-ISP related cases.

LJ is starting to suck even more than just royally and it has since Six Apart bought it. This latest buyout shoved this product so far down the toilet I won't be using it except to read other LJs and I will be heavily encouraging people to go elsewhere even if I have to host them on my own server with WordPress.

This whole LJ thing is a freakin' messed up product now.
