Re: LiveJournal

Post  blooey on Thu Dec 22, 2011 7:43 pm

I definitely participate less than I did when I first got my journal. RL just gets in the way. I had loads of free time nine years ago compared to now, and I think other people on my flist are the same. Now, even when I have half an hour, I have so many other online and RL commitments that staying in touch with my LJ friends gets pushed to the back burner. Also, the novelty of social networking has worn off a little; I no longer feel the need to share every little thing I do or thought I have with the internet.

And the internet has changed so much in the last few years. I was in college when the internet first became A Thing, back when AOL was cutting edge, and some of these newfangled Web 2.0 changes like the ones LJ has implemented have made the internet less fun for me. They're unwieldy and counterintuitive and they make my eyes hurt. As a result, I use the internet more as a tool than the merry-making device it was for me when it first started.

I'm so annoyed by this because there is no other place on the internet that serves my social networking needs like LJ does. I imported my journal over to Dreamwidth yesterday, and I don't like it. DW is supposed to be exactly the same, but it's not. Twitter is completely unusable for me, and Tumblr makes me want to lurk rather than actively participating. I don't like DW, I don't like Tumblr, I don't like Twitter.

One of the ljnews updates said that they're going to reintroduce an S2 style with the same look and functionality as the previous default pages, so I wonder if they're trying to encourage people to buy paid accounts for the custom comment pages.

ETA: Just a heads up: One person on my friends list had automatic renewal/payments turned off, and LJ turned them back on without telling her. So, you know, check your accounts.

Fast Company talks about "The Return of LiveJournal".

A quote I thought was interesting:
Petrochenko told us that the community push is taking place because LiveJournal β€œis a trove of amazing community-driven, user-generated content. Its content consists of not just blog entries and photos, but hundreds of thousands of comments posted by people who are passionate about the topic at hand.”
Yeah, because the changes made to commenting have made it so much easier to read.

Well did you note this part? (Italics are mine.)
Reaction from longtime users has been overwhelmingly negative--LiveJournal patrons slammed the redesign on the service's official blog.

LiveJournal's leadership has made it clear that their future American business strategy lies in generating new traffic rather than catering to the service's current small-but-loyal membership.
They OFFICIALLY don't give a shit about us. Not just unofficially.

Well, I'm glad to have that cleared up, once and for all! Oh, except not really.

Anyone having issues with accessing LJ lately? I can't get into any pages at all from home, although I was able to see ONTD from work the other day.

So I have an account, that I only use for commending on other people's entries. Today I noticed I have 60 messages in the inbox. They're all announcements of one kind or another. Is there an easy way of selecting them all, so I can delete them? I can get four or five at once, but that just seems too long and tedious.

Right next to the "Read" button at the top of the inbox, there should be a small square that you can click so that you delete all the messages on the page at the same time.

So now LJ-cuts look totally different--there's a little pair of scissors, three dots, then an ordinary-looking link. Did I miss an announcement or something? Is it just my flist acting weird?

Yes, they screwed stuff up again unnecessarily. They announced it yesternight.

It's uglier and I've scrolled by several cut entries because I think it's just a link elsewhere, not the rest of the post. And the scissors just look stupid. THE PARENTHESES WERE FINE, JEEZ. Stop pulling this Facebook-style nonsense.

There's already a fix for it, but I forgot where I found it. I'll link you to it once I find it! Here it is! I will never understand the concept of fixing what is far from being broken. They do all the damn breaking!

It looks like the LJ-cuts are back to parenthesis once more.

They finally managed to fix one thing, but sadly, it's not something I really cared much about. I was kinda surprised about the hoopla surrounding the new look of the LJ cut.

If they can reverse that stupid, useless change, why can't they just give us back comment subject lines? I still miss those and found them useful as do mods of many communities!

Huh, a scouring of my cache seemed to fix it, but things were downright weird for a while there.

So LJ just logged me out and wants me to either create an account or log in using OpenID. Any idea what the heck is happening? I was able to post a test entry but I'm not staying logged in.

Is anyone else having trouble with livejournal? Whenever I try to go to the front page, or a community, I can't connect, but every webstatus page I've checked has said that livejournal should be working.

A friend of mine in CA is having the same problem so it's not just you. To say she's angry is an understatement.

It was messed up yesterday, too. And down a lot. Apparently there's more political upheaval in Russia?

With the complaints I see here, I am super surprised that it's actually working decently for me. I haven't had problems with LJ in weeks, come to think of it!

Wow. All I can see properly at this point is my goddamn inbox. Every time I try to check any communities, I get Frank the Goat's ugly ass eyeballing me with wires in his mouth.

Some of my entries are coming up, but others aren't? Including the one I'm trying to edit at the moment? Get your face out of my face, Frank.

It's kind of funny to read the comments section of ONTD and just see people's animated gif avatars with no text.
