Paid/Perm-only s2 layouts available to all users  
All s2 layouts, except for Component and The Boxer, are available to all users.

This is how it was before the lj_stylecontest and most of the ones that were added after that were restricted to Paid/Perm-only.

More benefits being taken from us. :\

(Thanks to shatteredshards for reminding me.)


Here's some excessive note-taking:

On 20030828 we get Component and The Boxer, the first 2 Paid/Perm-only s2 layouts.

Butt Suckers! Feh.

Haha, it makes it slightly easier for me sometimes, I test things out on free journals before making the regular changes to certain things in my permie journal

oh noes! now we're not as special and élite! whatever shall we do besides complain endlessly?

i still find it annoying that they're shuffling the "value" of all of the account types (soon to be "levels").

This really does bother me too. There is not much left that is special just for us anymore.

enh. I've been using the basic classic style since... well, since I got my journal. They keep coming out with new styles and none of them beats the classic for useability and basic functionality. The s2 version of the classic layout made some minor improvements on it so I adopted that. I don't need my journal to look s00per l33t to alert everyone else to my permie status - *I* know!
kunzite: s2kunzite1 on April 3rd, 2006 11:30 pm (UTC)

if you have a paid/perm account you can alter any s2 layout to do anything you want. within the limitations of the allowed tags, of course.

I guess there are two kind of perm users. The ones that care and the ones that don't.
I don't care. I paid for a perm account in the hope it's gonna pay itself off and I never again have to pay for anything on LJ!
As long as I have access to all tools as is now, I am happy ;-p

More benefits being taken from us. :\

Bull. Nothing's taken from us - it's merely being made available to others as well. Don't be an elitist snob. :)

limitlessphoenixdreaming on April 4th, 2006 10:19 am (UTC)
*cheers* Yes, exactly.
qfemaleqfemale on April 4th, 2006 10:37 am (UTC)
I know you already agree with me but you totally spoke my mind. I didn't feel comfortable using the 'bad words'. But yes, you are totally right!

ρrho on April 4th, 2006 02:39 pm (UTC)
Absolutely agreed.

And furthermore, not only is nothing being taken away from us, extra stuff is being given to us as well. Just from looking at this entry, in the past two and a half years, we've got 8 extra styles to choose from, 112 extra userpics, the scrapbook feature with 10GB of storage space.

I agree with you.

I have had my prem account since 2003.

I didn't know that some perm account holders were this upset about other account holders being given some benefits.

The perm account holders still do get extra benefits without having to pay extra for them.
So what if we have 100 moe benefits instead of 200.

Some people are not only being elitist snobs but getting this upset is not healthy.
