* Interestingly, the first comment is a complaint about paid accounts seeing the promo-block, and the reply from staff indicates that LJ is planning on removing paid accounts at some point in the future. What that means for paid features remains to be seen.

I barely use my account any more, but before things went mad, I opted for the permanent account the last time they offered it.

Looks like it was a bad investment.  Wonder what they're going to offer in the way of recompense to people like me if they're going to do away with paid accounts and go to a ad/promo financed system

And I wonder if I'll even care by then.

Yeah, this is pretty much the straw that broke the camel's back for me. When these changes are implemented, chances are looking very good that I'll go to Dreamwidth permanently. Maybe I better put my request into the queue to back up my LJ - though I've only been here a few years, I don't want to lose anything (else).

This really fucking sucks - and I see the lj_releases post is similarly full of explosions o.O

Autocratic Russian business attitudes vs. American users. Someone's gonna end up being rather unhappy. It's no wonder I spend so much time on Google+

I have a program on my computer called "LJArchive" that automatically backs up your entire LJ, including comments, to your computer every time you open it. I imagine googling it would show you where to get it. I've forgotten since I downloaded it many moons ago.

All of this really sucks because I've been on LJ for about 10 years now and the entirety of my college experience is documented here. :\

I just imported my LJ into Dreamwidth - no fuss, no muss. It was sort of a pain because before I figured out how to crosspost I was posting separately to each account, and those didn't merge when I imported, but that's because I'm an idiot sometimes, LOL.

Hey there!

I don't have a paid acct here, but have noticed the changes. Is there a way to back up everything I have here on lj? I also have a dreamwidth acct though I have yet to learn it, but I wasn't sure if there was a way to back up lj just in case.

I also have a google+ acct, lol, and haven't learned it very well either. I actually might have 2 sign in emails, as it seems like I forgot the first, made a second, and can't remeber wither one, lol.

I was hoping maybe you could walk me through how to access my acct info there (google+) as I have forgotten my sign in info, and would like to chat with you over there if possible, lol.

Hugs... would luv to tty again.

I think kriscynical's reply to my comment was really meant for yours... :)

But you can set up your Dreamwidth account to import your LJ, entries + comments, and its fairly simple. The DW admins are super helpful, too, so there's another alternative for you :)

I'll do that! Thank you!
