Hello, I'm Shay, I've had a perm account since last year, nice to meet other folks with chemically treated hair similar accounts.

Probably many of you know, but there's a huge discussion about LJ becoming more like MySpace and trying to appeal to a 'younger' crowd.

You can read about it, and a petition, two entries down.

Now, this affects perm members because of loss of service, yes, but I'm also wondering- will they allow transfers between LJ and Vox with a transfer token? Hmmm...

How could they want to go younger? The age groups with the most users are teenagers, if they look at the statistics. They already have them, they don't need to change what they are doing to get them.
Baby, I'm gonna do you till you can juggle.: Beads 1shaysdays on June 20th, 2006 08:44 pm (UTC)
Well- somewhere in that thread are the follwing points:

Older members are a little loath to reveal their age
Many 'members' are roleplaying accounts (How many 'Hermiones' are on Livejournal, do you think?)
If someone puts in an age that is impossible, like 1700, it would throw the whole system out of whack and skew it younger.
