Community Background and Lineage  
February 10, 2006 - Several LiveJournal-ers with Permanent Accounts decide to band together in an uprising and revolt after suffering grave injustice and loss of benefits. One complication stood in the way, threatening to smother the emerging rebellion -- there was no place to rally. Searching high-and-low, it was discovered there were zero communities specifically for LiveJournal-ers with Permanent Accounts to discuss issues of importance relevant to their social status.

A daring suggestion was made to migrate to GreatestJournal, and with that a community was born (on GreatestJournal): ljpermacct ljpermaccts But GreatestJournal sucks like a Hoover, and since many involved parties were unlikely to frequent GreatestJournal, the community was syndicated here on LiveJournal so that when posts were made, members would not miss entries of import: gj_ljpermaccts

Thus completes the first half of the circle.

The second half of the circle is incomplete, as of this moment; it will involve creating a syndicated account on Greatest Journal from this community's RSS feed, then creating a syndicated feed here on LiveJournal pulling from the RSS feed of the Greatest Journal account that pulls from this community's feed. A perfect circle! This can not currently be done, however, because GreatestJournal really does suck something horrible, and the syndicated feed can not be created, as of this writing.

the following have restrictions or are unable to create syn accts at this time: deadjournal, bloty, blurty, caleida, insanejournal, iziblog, loudwire.

bottom line: lameness abound.

That's what people get for runnin' to join a site that's "better" than LiveJournal. lol I didn't realize there were quite that many daughter-sites, though. o.o

Anyway, hope I got the background reasonably-accurate, in regards to the other community. I'll actually do another post shortly to cover the point of the community.

I used to have a list of all those sites in a private entry, with notes on which of them I had held accounts on.

This was back when I cared. And before a couple of them got deleted for inactivity (another reason to stay on LJ).

i took notes in a public entry that talked about what each one offered. or rather, why it was free. silly ads and such.

Does kindof suck that all of a sudden the things that made being a permenent member are like becoming available to others...

Never heard of GreatestJournal though....

Well, there are a number of daughter-sites out there -- many of which I knew none about. The only reason I know of GreatestJournal is that when people complain that they should get more userpics, they use GreatestJournal as "proof" it can be done, since they offer somewhere in the neighborhood of 2000.

Yeah, it doesn't seem like they really have things together over there.
