Count me among those very troubled by LJ's new user agreement. It's not surprising that it happened, but... yeah. I was not thrilled with the situation since January but now I'm feeling a rather stronger urge to up stakes entirely. At the very least, in the short term I am seriously considering stopping crossposting or at least turning off commenting.

If anyone is looking for me on DW, I think this should be fairly obvious because of my crossposting footers (though this post is not a crosspost), but I'm [personal profile] shyfoxling over there as well.

ETA: If I have you in my circle on DW, I will usually be changing my filters so as to read you over there instead of here. (There are some exceptions where people get lots more/different comments on LJ.)

Ugh. Do not like new default site scheme and look of profile and update pages. To me, it looks harder to read - less contrast or something? It seems light and bright and is kinda hurting my eyes. Choice of font seems like oo aren't we all slick and postmodern, rather than being, you know, comfortable to read. And check out all this wasted space: Read more... )

Also not keen that apparently now the site scheme cookie I set with LJLogin is meaningless (at least, I've only just noticed now that trying to set a site scheme that way has no effect; I think my choice of Horizon had previously held). I only hope that LJLogin itself will continue to work for the foreseeable future... And I think it's odd that they've dropped the term "journal" in favor of "blog" in some places (really? people think of these as blogs?), but not uniformly (e.g. number of journal entries on profile is still labeled such).

The thing that really gets my Frank-the-goat about this kind of stunt is that LJ just springs it on us, without so much as a warning in [ profile] news or some such place that any design change is even coming at all, never mind posting some preview mockups or, wow, actually involving users in development (like Dreamwidth does). You just log in one day and bam, it all looks different.

Has anyone else noticed that when you edit custom friends groups, the "not in group" and "in group" boxes no longer display usernames in alphabetical order? Makes it a real pain in the ass to add or remove specific people. Is it just me somehow?

If anyone else out there uses LJLogin, have you noticed that it hasn't been able to log in to LJ (specifically; IJ and DW work fine) for about 5+ days now? If I log in manually it detects the login and updates the status bar appropriately, but selecting a login from its own menu does nothing, it just stays at "Not logged in." I think it might be connected to the latest LJ update and/or the "Connection reset" errors people have been seeing, but I haven't gotten any response from [ profile] slarti about it.

A couple of days ago LJ was apparently having problems with notifications. I didn't notice anything amiss at the time, but now I am getting double or even triple notifications for some comments (not from edits; they're really duplicates as far as I can tell). Is this happening to anyone else?

Does anyone know what is up with some LJ accounts getting suspended apparently at random today?

News post about the hideous new friends-reading page, in optional beta now, but I assume it will be forced on all of us soon. Please to tell them how you feel about it? (I hope most people agree with me that it is a big ugly DO NOT WANT and another example of LJ trying to be other services, like Facebook and Tumblr, rather than sticking to its original guns.)

Following on what I just reposted from [ profile] twissie, I would like to point out that LiveJournal has (or very nearly has) shut down its US office.

Is the navigation strip suddenly broken for anyone else? I'm seeing this, which is rather unwieldy as you can imagine: Read more... )
edit: I of course tried refreshing.

Now, I understand why people are annoyed with this. It would seem that LJ decided they didn't need to bother, you know, telling anyone this was going to happen. But guys - alls I can see they are doing here is decommissioning an old, IMO creaky service in favor of what I would assume is a more modern implementation of photo hosting, and converting everyone's data over. (I don't know where the statement that this will also reduce the amount of space from 10 GB to 2 GB is coming from. I don't see that in the post linked to. Perhaps someone can point to the original Russian and verify where this was said?) Personally I will be interested to see if Photo Album or whatever they are calling it will be able to recognize me as logged in, which ScrapBook won't (because I use LJLogin to manage my multiple logins), meaning I can't see any ScrapBook pictures with security other than public.

Alright, I am not drunk enough to deal with this, so I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away. Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

No one probably needs me to add to the nearly 10,000 comments on the relevant news post (plus thousands more on later patch and such posts) about how ugly and non-functional LJ's latest changes to comments and threading are. But more serious news of late is that if you have an LJ account you should check its status: people are reporting finding themselves set to recurring payments without their knowledge or consent, regardless of whether they'd ever been set that way in the past. (This is merely by coding accident, one hopes, but still.)
