We Win At LiveJournal  
We win at LiveJournal. Do you know why? glowing_dragon made a post yesterday, located here, about discovering that permaccounters now receive even more userpics, while qfemale discovered the reason why (commenting here). The reason that means we win is because it was discovered and posted about prior to that information being announced publicly in news. Major props to them!!

It since has been officially anounced here.

Since we're still a young and struggling community, our membership is small. I'm sure there are numerous commenters in the latest news post who have permanent accounts, so if you happen to stumble across one while reading through the many, many comments there are sure to be, please feel free to invite them to join permmembers.

The more, the merrier!

Edit: The new members have already started filing in. If you're new, you may want to go here to read introductions from members who're more than a couple days old and possibly to introduce yourself. If you've been here for more than a few days, you may want to check back there periodically to check-out the fresh-meat. I'd like to extend a big thanks to those who take a few moments to promote the community when they can, and a hearty welcome to all the new members. *group hug*

We win at LiveJournal. Do you know why?

Because we're a bunch of elitists who think they're something better because they shelled out a bunch of bucks for a permanent account when they were on sale? ^_~

Seriously, kudos to glowing_dragon and gfemale, but I find the idea that permanent account holders are somehow "better" than others a bit strange. Sure, I'm all for us getting extra cookies and stuff, but that kind of patting our own shoulders isn't really necessary, is it? ^^

It's said in joking spirit (for the most part -- I can't speak for everyone).

Incidentally, not everyone who has a permanent account paid for it. Many earned it (I don't have numbers, though that'd be interesting to know).

True enough. :)

Best way would just to do a poll.. o.o
one that had options of which time they bought it, or if they earned it in support, or for some misc. option.. Hm.. I'm not sure how brad..
that reminds me, back about two weeks ago, in lj dev.. brad was giving a way permie accounts to people who helped with some code thing, someone might want to check out those people as well in that post. darn it, I lost my train of thought. I need an icon that says permie account <.< a cute one..

Well, unfortunately we don't have a way to do a poll that would reach all permies. And if we had a way to reach all permies, I'd worry less about a poll than informing them about this community. :D
Curly Fry and the Tator Totsjaebird on March 16th, 2006 02:15 pm (UTC)
:P I meant just a poll in this community, people can add to it as they join o.o
maybe we can get it to show on the info page too. Hm..
I wonder..
*goes off to hunt down her idea*

No, polls no longer work in the userinfo page; if you go to lj_nifty and look in the memories section you'll find an old post of mine on how to put polls in the userinfo. It's listed under deprecated. :x

I have an intro post for the community, and many said how they got their accounts. I may consider a poll. The userinfo I'll keep the same, to mimic paidmembers.

it's Qfemale btw ;-p
Schneeschnee on March 16th, 2006 02:22 pm (UTC)
*squints* OK... sorry. :) Blame it on a font where g and q look exactly the same when bold and underlined... ^_~
qfemaleqfemale on May 7th, 2006 05:09 pm (UTC)
yes I know, it's totally LJ's fault!
Schneeschnee on May 7th, 2006 05:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah. You should change your name (the one next to your username, not your username itself, that is) to include a note that "that's a Q, not a G". ^.~
qfemaleqfemale on May 7th, 2006 05:17 pm (UTC)
*lol* yeah but I doubt most people would read it ;-) Or understand it!
Schneeschnee on May 7th, 2006 05:20 pm (UTC)
Who knows. :)
qfemaleqfemale on March 16th, 2006 05:49 am (UTC)
*cheers* I can see my name up there ;-p That makes me feel all nice and warm inside!

Somebody said in the news posts that for every 3 month you have a perm account, you get an additional icon slot. Anybody else heard of that and know if it's true?
Yáng Yuǎn Zhìadudeabides on March 16th, 2006 05:59 am (UTC)
Yes, for every three months of paid (and perm) time you get one additional icon slot, as well as one additional slot for every 12 continuous months of paid (and perm) time. So, we should get five additional slots per year.

By the time I hit 90-years old, I should be pretty close to having 500 icon slots. :D
qfemaleqfemale on March 16th, 2006 06:01 am (UTC)
I don't use all my slots as is... but yeah... it's one of those things that is going to drive me nuts!!
It's going to be very very interesting ;-)
