June 2007 PermAccount Sale  
Perm. accounts are expected to go on sale from 7-14 June now on sale, at the price of $150. (And hopefully this happens, otherwise this post will make me look foolish). Expect a news post soon.

Starting with a handful of members, just over a year ago, the community has grown to over 712 members, as of this post. And that was entirely due to members recruiting others. With the upcoming sale, the opportunity for heavy "recruiting" presents itself. So, if you happen to come across new permies -- whether in a news post or through your flist -- consider taking the opportunity to introduce them to this community and encourage them to join.

I think we've a diverese group, though with a common thread (of course), and I'd like to see that growth continue. Whether you've spent time developing LiveJournal or spent money toward LiveJournal development, each of you have contributed something to LiveJournal. Let's continue to try to develop this community into the premier source of committed LiveJournalers on this site.

For new members: Welcome. Take a look around; you can see details on this community's purpose here. Take a look around, and feel free to ask any questions.

For members, new and old: The post for our official "meet and greet" is located here; feel free to introduce yourself, whether new or old, and take a spare moment to check-out some existing members.

Right then...I'm done talking.

I don't know if it could be done, as it's specific in general, but maybe if we hit the spotlight at the same time, or even just ask one of the people in charge of the Perm Buying if we can have a link posted at the place one buys the permie acounts >_>
Though, while I like the Spotlight thing, it's a pain in the arse for actual comms.

It'd be nice if someone recommended the community for spotlight, but I don't know that they would select it. I've thought about makin' the suggestion myself, but I haven't decided if that's a conflict of interest, on my part. :x Why do you say it's a pain in the arse for actual communities?

Maybe it's to temp people back who left because of Strikethough 2007, give them more time and not a mad 24 rush.

Good question. Probably it was because of the recent drama, but ya never know...

I don't know if it would be because of the public posts. Things get leaked all of the time, so I don't know if that would be the biggest reason to push things back.

However, with all of the stuff that's happened recently, there are a lot of people who've lost faith in LJ. I think that them doing a cooling off period and actually fix what the problem is before they go and start selling perm accounts to people. Right now I know a lot of people who aren't paying LJ anything until after they see what LJ does to change their policies.

...hell, I've been a permie for like 5 years and I never heard of this community until today. :O

Well, then...now you know. :)

It's been tricky to get the word out, short of spamming news posts.
