Greet & Meet  
Welcome, all, to the first community on LiveJournal specifically for members with Permanent Accounts. This is the first non-introductory post in this community. And by "non-introductory post," I mean a post that's actually introductory. Not introducing you to the community, but to each other. However, I can not read minds, so I will require your input to make this post reasonably purposeful.

Please take a moment to post a reply to this post introducing yourself to fellow members, and let me know how you came to join this community. Be sure to come back and peruse the other replies, when you can. Permanent Account holders are a small group in the world we call LiveJournal -- less than 10% of the population, in fact -- and you may be surprised to find that several of you are likely to have interests in common, resulting in new "friendships" here on LiveJournal. I know each of you already have one thing in common; you have a permanent account (how you got your permanent account might be a good starting point). You can post whatever you feel will best give others an idea of who you are, however creative and clever or dreary and droll you wish it to be.

The community is a few days old at this point, and already has 42 members. That's decent growth. The more members we have, the better the opportunity for quality discussion and ensuring this community becomes a useful resource for all. So I encourage promoting this community -- word-of-mouth, communities, whatever. The more the merrier, correct?

Lastly, I'll be making the first topical post fairly soon, so keep your eyes peeled!!

Hm. I found it through glowing_dragon
Who persuaded me to join with a whip and a cute leather outfi.... errrr. Anyway.
:) Name's Jamie and support was my game. (hahaha) Volunteered in Support a few years ago, earned my permanent account that way. A little bit before they were even selling permanent accounts and all that. I don't help out there much anymore (at all) I cut down on my livejournal use for about two years, and they implemented s2 during that time, so I'm still learning a lot about both systems.
I'll keep on all of the permie users backs I know :) I think that covers it.

Oh, is it wrong that I want more icon space? :D

Yes I also got here trought glowing_dragon. We know each other from news-post-spammings in the past and it was really nice of her [?] to give me a link to this community. Spammerz Unite!! *lol*

I very simply bought my account at the last sale because I figured it's gonna pay off at some point. I'm a student, the 150 bucks was all I had saved up over the past 3 month or so, but it's still better to have spend that than to have to buy paid time once a year plus icon space plus scrapBook space.
I am totally addicted to scrapBook and like others with for more icon space, I wish for more scrapBook space ;-)

Yes that's me in the user icon.
Yáng Yuǎn Zhìadudeabides on February 20th, 2006 05:27 pm (UTC)
Permanent Accounts get 10GB of ScrapBook space. Are you already pushing that limit? :o

You would mean glowing_dragon, I suspect. I'm rather glad they went back to that news post to promote the community -- it's helped this community's growth start-off quite well.

So, ummm...welcome. :)

...Again. :x

Hi, I'm thatkellygirl. Name's Kelly, and I'm here because someone left a comment in my journal about the community. I bought my perm. account at the last sale of them, because I figured that it would pay for itself, and I don't forsee myself leaving LJ. I'm angsty and over 40, a theatre/criminal justice major in college, and that's about it. Anymore questions, see my info page.
Yáng Yuǎn Zhìadudeabides on February 20th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC)
Theater/Criminal Justice -- that's an interesting combination. What made you choose that?

I found this community through a well-thought comment I made in the lj post that spoke about perm accounts (can't remember who made it). I thought it was a great idea and made a lot of sense. I'm trying to pass on the news to other friends I know who have perm lj accounts.
Yáng Yuǎn Zhìadudeabides on February 20th, 2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
Excellent, thank you. Word-of-mouth is, IMO, one of the best forms of promotion.

I'm glad you liked the idea.

I'm not sure what to say, actually, except for the usual... I got my permanent account last summer when they were sold, and now was told about the community by userinfofoxymoonheart.

Yeah. :)
Yáng Yuǎn Zhìadudeabides on February 20th, 2006 05:34 pm (UTC)
Well, the usual's a good starting-point, I suspect. :)

Be careful about doing what he says. Especially if he's taking pictures while tellin' you what to do. Incriminating photos, I've found-out, can be a pain. ;p

Guesslauren on February 20th, 2006 06:56 pm (UTC)
My name's Lauren (Ren) & I am here because kunzite1 made a comment in one of the posts I made in component_help. I bought my account during the last sale; I had wanted to purchase one during the first sale, but I was out of town during its procession (damnation). Anyway, I figure that since I've been using LiveJournal for quite a bit of time, the account will pay for itself in a few years.

name's mike.
i'm a 22-year-old ex-college-student who lives with his father.
his brother comes over every other weekend to hang out.
his mother lives about 6 miles away (about 45 minutes on public transit).
he noticed the last permanent account sale and was like "dude! that'd be awesome! but i don't have the money for it!"
so. i got $15 sent to my paypal account from a random user. then the difference was sent from cookiegirlie and otterprincess. so. i cashed it in the next day and got my pretty permanent account.
i've done some image hacking for permanent account stuffs:
