Hence the "new." Like DeadJournal. And all the other ones I can't keep up with.

Inksome you at least need a code or something to even get an account. Elitist jerks :(

I bet they're just as bad as LJ.

Huh, really? Some people at AMS have an RP there.

Well beta makes sense. Codes are always given out for those. I hope you didn't buy one.

Probably because of that whole "needing a code to make the account." I do like the 100+ icon slots without having to pay. Wish LJ would bump it from 15 to 20 or something.

Good boy ♥

Not having actually looked at the site, I don't know entirely what people in general like (though I could doubtless look up why one of my friends specifically likes it fairly quickly). But I think a part of the reason this Livejournal clone in particular is getting a lot of attention is because there are a large number of people working on it who were a part of Livejournal before the change in management.

Looks like, from the popularity of the site currently, that a lot of other people do, too.

We'll see how popular it is in a month or so. Usually it's just hype when it comes to clones.

I must admit, there's a new LJ clone on the block every few months nowadays, so I wouldn't be surprised.

I can understand wanting to screw off LJ. The new management team kind of sucks. I want more than 15 icons for an account if I have to deal with advertisements that bog down my ram.

Wheras I have to remind myself to use more than a few icons here, so I'm fairly neutral on screwing LJ. But, I must admit, more iconspace if/when I get back into RP would be nice. I've gotten used to 15 icons, so it doesn't seem like such an amazing amount of space anymore like back when they went from 3 (I think? my memory is bad) to 6 to 15.

5->15.

15 is nice and all, but it's not a good trade off for those annoying adds. I can understand needing the adds from a business point of view? But come on. At least give us 20 icons. Then bump paid up to 40.

Really? I was sure there was a time of 6 icons.... *shrugs*

That would be nice. I'm sure it'll happen someday, since they've been slowly raising the number of icons. They probably felt going up to 15 was a big enough leap to last us a while.

Huh, maybe ever I joined up. I've been here for years, I remember only 5. I'm old, my memory is going.


20 is a nice round number. Anyone ever figured out the cent value per icon? Since like it's 20$ for the account for a year, then +$10 for 100 icons.

You could be right, though. I could probably figure out if I poked around my old abandoned RP accounts, but...why bother. My memory has been going since I was about 7.

Well, that would be hindered by the fact that the paid account offers more benefits than just the icons (for all that most people don't care about a lot of them). I mean, we could assume that each icon costs the same and judge from the #-of-extra-icons/$10 of the userpic increase alone, but I imagine it's not a linear relation.

I don't really see all the other stuff with the paid accounts. I haven't even figured out how to do that whole scrapbook thing with mine.

I sent in an email! I haven't been very active, to be honest, but I explained it to Eggy and she said it would be fine.

But yeah, I'm still going to drop a comment there.
