I'd rather more userpics and the ability to do the voice-posty thing here in Australia :p
Yes! That is exactly what I would like as well!!!!

Neat as these are, I'm wondering if there's been any progress on the whole 'Calling the Canadian voice post number and getting dropped after a minute' issue... It wouldn't be so bad if I could just call the number in the states (like I used to before we had a number up here, being that it's all LD for me anyways) but that's not an option anymore. It's been 'said' on the support area, of course, that this is being looked into but as this has been going on as long as it has, I'm inclined to doubt that.

Why not use the message system to notify about linking (since it's a system for sending notifications) so you don't need to allow users to comment on your entries to receive information?
Whatever, I actually like this.
There's plenty of writers who, for instance, are writing original fiction and some would probably like to know who is recommending them or their story. Same with people writing more 'scholarly' and research-based work. They too would probably like to know who's linking others to their post[s].

Re-Titling Username Question
Awesome-Sauce. Thanks for this! here's hoping it [the pingback] works, lol :)
Also - what is the reason for creating the retitling option? I don't understand the benefits.

Re: Re-Titling Username Question
Where did you hear about the re-titling option? I've never heard of that!
*whoosh* that's the sound of the explanation going over my head.
*waves* That's me not caring for whatever the feature does anyway.
Cool, but why won't paid (and, I imagine, permanent) users get pingbacks if the user referencing their post does not have a paid/perm account? :) I can obviously understand restricting the feature itself to paid/perm users, but...
Database load, we're testing it for them so they can get it to work for everyone.
Guess what, I learned this in a comment buried deep in the releases comm. Rather than it simply being at the top in the post like you'd expect given it's both an obvious question and something that isn't a paid account benefit as such.
Every time I think they've learnt...
I like this one a lot. Hope it's successful enough to expand to non-paid users, too.
I won't be using either.
But I don't understand why we don't get more userpics. I mean, if we're willing to pay for them! I'd happily pay to upgrade my 123 userpics to 200, or even 150!
Doesn't LJ want our money!?
Will pingback work in communities?
Why is this done in the form of screened comments rather than just e-mails?
This is a very good point, I also would prefer email notification.
I'm amused/suprised how many people dont seem to understand (or have ever heard of the concept of) trackback/pingbacks and can't see where it'd be useful.
Does this work in communities so long as the person posting has a paid account? Would the community need to have a paid account, or does it just work in personal journals?
If the majority of LJ-ers are smart and keep their posts f-locked or private, then why the heck would we need pingbacks? What's the freaking point?
Oh, boy, you have TWO HUGE suppositions in your if statement (1) that the majority of LJ-ers are smart and (2) the majority of LJ-ers keep their posts flocked or private.
I have no opinion on one, but I strongly suspect that 2 is not the case in absolute terms, and I know for a fact there are many subcultures on LJ for whom 2 is not true.
