I would like to cast my "Yes" vote for making all of these things. :-)
I think that both of those features would be great to see. Its fun to see who has been to your page and then if they are a memeber read their journal also. Great idea!!!
It's all good. LJ just keeps getting better and better. I'm glad I spent the few $$.

Search by age/location
What about the Creation of a Search Engine where you can search not only by Interest, but by age/sex/location as well...

Re: Search by age/location
I haven't read through all the comments, so apologies if this is a dupe in any way. You asked for comments, and I suddenly had a few, though they may stem from my lj inexperience.
I'd like to see a second window for tracking select groups. One of the communities to which I belong requires a high volume of screen real estate. I wish I could throw it into the background, yet still have it quickly accessible. Perhaps a "Community Watch" tab beneath the Friends link and User Info? (I know, it's more complicated than that, just something to consider for a later rev.)
For the stats, I'd like to see forward and backward linking, i.e. I want to know how many people I link to in my little universe, as well as how many people link to me. I'd absolutely love any additional stats you provided. Numbers rock, and I find web traffic patterns extremely fun to analyze.
And as a final note, I'd like a back button in the browser window when I'm entering a comment. It's discouraging that I have to remember that I should copy my comment text before a preview. I have lost several posts this way when I neglected this step.
Keep up the great work. My friends and I are loving this!
I think you should fix some of the featuresthat are down first like being able to change youre user name.
How about being able to upload an image directly to you livejournal for your background?
I would love that option.. I only have geocities (I know.. I know.. *cringe*).. and they don't allow remote linking -_-
But there could be a size limit if it's a problem.. because large background files are a pain to load for people on 56K
I thought it would be kind of convenient to be able to type in a key word to find a specific live journal entry..
I think making it so we can't learn who is reading our LJ is dumb. While online journals tend to be more public than ones in real life, but all the same, you should be aware who's reading.

Last time this was discussed (somewhere, a long time ago), there were a lot of people in favour of an "opt-out" option, where logged in users can choose to be completely ignored by the stats tracker if they wish.
This sounds like a good solution to the privacy concerns of a lot of users, especially if they can opt out of different parts of the tracking selectively.

long delay in response
It might actually be better to require opt-in. Have it default to off but be enableable in journal options. ??
I think that having the stat tracker is a good idea! I would like to know who views my journal and how often it gets visited.
i was wondering if there is still going to be a feature to edit the lj comments pages for paid users...
the individual journal statistics is also a good idea!
any idea on when these things will be up and running?

It could be a user-controlled feature as it is on IMing programs usually... letting each person decide whether they make their online presence known or not, with a default setting possibility in the profile. something along these lines. there could be alternate profile images (these little blue heads next to lj users) to stand for each status integrated.
I didn't go through the pages of comments so you may have already heard this, but I think it'd be a great idea to know who read your journal who wasn't on your friends list. Mine is friends only, but it's still a good idea.
