wrong: Starts Thursday...

"The Permanent Account sale starts Thursday, June 21st."

=P I think it'll start 'tomorrow' for the OP. ^^ He's in a different time zone than those of us in America.

Indeed! And by the time I posted this, it was past midnight and thus Wednesday. (Unless you live in one of those weird timezones, maybe. :))

And already Strikethrough 2007 is a major topic of discussion.

Yes, and some are bringing up the pattern as well; "Nipplegate" about the banning of breastfeeding icons.

Can a community be made permanent?
Schneeschnee on June 20th, 2007 02:30 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure, but I don't see any a priori reason why it couldn't be, especially given that communities can also be paid accounts. :)
Sileyasileya on June 20th, 2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that was my thought.

Yes. But they won't enjoy every advantage of that status...the scrapbook space, userpics, etc.

(I suppose you could upload the userpics, but comms can't quite use them in the same way.
Sileyasileya on June 20th, 2007 03:00 pm (UTC)
Cool. I don't use the bells and whistles on it, anyway. Thanks for responding.

I can't find info on this anywhere.... I'm going to buy a Perm account (yay!), but what happens to the Paid time I still have left? I believe I am paid up through December. I think I remember seeing somewhere that you could gift it to someone, but I could totally be making this up, and I can't find anything to confirm or deny it.
Schneeschnee on June 21st, 2007 07:18 am (UTC)
You should be able to do that, yeah - at least I did when I got my perm account the last time. :)
Jalil Purtowdorwrath on June 21st, 2007 02:03 pm (UTC)
You will be able to transfer the paid time to another account. I transferred mine to my wife.

I actually found the answer while digging through the comments on the News post, and I've already set up a poll to determine which of my friends loves me the most :D

How many permanent accounts are there? Does anyone know? I thought the info for the number of various account types used to be on the stats.bml page, but it isn't there anymore. I wish they'd automatically add permanent members to this community, as they do with paid members in the paidmembers community. :)
Schneeschnee on June 21st, 2007 07:35 pm (UTC)
Paid members don't automatically get added to paidmembers, actually (unless they changed that recently). :)
Taraainabarad on June 21st, 2007 07:47 pm (UTC)
Really? They did back when I first got a paid account, but that was back in 2002. It kills me wondering how many accounts there are of each type now, like how many permanent accounts aren't members of this community and such. They used to have that info on the stats.bml page, but it's not there anymore, at least it wasn't the last time I checked which was earlier today. Thanks for the info!!! :)
Taraainabarad on June 21st, 2007 07:48 pm (UTC)
Ooops! Sorry about the redundancy, I'm still trying to mentally wake up for the day! LOL ;)
Schneeschnee on June 21st, 2007 08:07 pm (UTC)
Sorry, can't help you there. :) And don't worry... redunancy is fine. ^^
