Basic Account is an option available to accounts which were created before March 12, 2008. No account created after this date can be turned into a Basic Account. Basic Accounts will not have any advertising displayed on their accounts, but will have fewer benefits and features.

Aren't you happy to have a perm account?

Edit: LJ is now also deleting comments in the latest news posts. Sadly I did not take a screen cap so I guess it doesn't matter.

... So. You have to have advertising, or else pay the money? Nice. Real nice. I may have this account as perm, but I have satellite accounts currently set to basic. Fortunately they were created before this, but still.

Oh, LiveJournal.

At this point I am just so glad that all of my accounts were turned to basic after the striketrough07.

BUT THIS JUST SUCKS!

Wait, what? Can you link the source for this? I'll admit that I'm not completely on top of LJ news, but I hadn't seen anything about this at all. o_O Either way, wow. Way to go LJ . . . -__-
qfemaleqfemale on March 13th, 2008 12:21 am (UTC)
Why would LJ post this anywhere where people would actually see it?

The 'source' is here. Follow the links in that entry for the official word.

There ain't no such thing as a free lunch.

And yep. I'm very glad to have my permanent account.

Wait are plus accounts still available then, or do you just have to pay now if you sign up on LJ?
qfemaleqfemale on March 13th, 2008 12:29 am (UTC)
If you create a new account now you will automatically have a Plus Account.

I don't think this is true - the account setup page still seems to offer the Basic option...
qfemaleqfemale on March 13th, 2008 12:34 am (UTC)
It's true, I tried it :-(

Oh yuck. As others have said I have a few other journals this would affect and THAT IS SO NOT ON.

I wonder if it's because people were taking advantage of certain things about Plus accounts and then switching back to Basic accounts immediately (like uploading a custom mood theme, for example).
Annamergina on March 13th, 2008 12:38 am (UTC)
If the journals were created before today, then you can still set them to basic, says the FAQ.
