So, not only has GJ posted to tell new users they're not welcome, but they've gone in six months from 2000 icons for every account to 10.  And we'll be lucky to keep those, really.  The database is locked tight so that you can't edit anything, and you can't save things with LJ Archive or similiar toys, either.

Now, I get that they're having a bit of a crisis.  And that they've been a free site since inception, but honestly?  Holding to that one premise is not a way to keep customers.  I'm not saying anyone needs that many icons.  I'm saying that when you offer someone a mansion, then hand them a shack, you've got to expect them to be pissed.

I do have to say this, though.  They have had since May to deal with this in some more constructive way.  Which way did they choose?  Taking away the way the journals work.  How is that not taking anything away from their current users?  Not to mention that they haven't purged the site in ages!  Someone said this was because they've messed up their coding and can't, but honestly?  After this long?  I say it's a huge issue.  Look how immediately responsive Squeaky was to everything we said to him.  It's no longer worth my time to stay there.  If I can ever get access to them again, I'm saving my accounts then offering them up here to people who want to try to stay.


Have I mentioned lately how much I love Squeaky? :D  *goes to see if she can upgrade her account*

Weighing in

I feel beat up, tired, and just sick.  I'm ready for all of this to just be over.

As of now, I have two alternate journals:
Elfmun at Greatestjournal, which is my backup journal and RP journal, and probably won't get used too much for anything aside from RP purposes.
Elfflame at Insane journal, which is currently blank, but will become my default if fandom deserts entirely, I am deleted, or I'm still this upset come the end of December or March, or whenever it is that I'm paid till.  I am NOT giving them any more of my money.  And here's why: They don't refund.  They refuse.  It's in the contract.  And if you can pay to have them treat you this way?  Why stay?

So far I've heard of four suspensions, the two fannish artists that everyone's heard about, and two from my husband's flist...  And don't you love the coincidental way the strikeout coding changed the same day that they did this?  So that you can't tell they've been deleted unless you go looking for them specifically?  Not to mention that they just disappear from your friends-list on your user info page, and since most of us have 200-300 friends or more, one is easy to miss, unless we talk to them every day...

In regards to the LJ Buz stuff?

I have a GJ -- Elfmun.

But this is my home.  And I will be here until they find some reason to delete me.  If and when that happens, my sorry butt will probably be moving to JournalFen, unless I get convinced between now and then to get an insanejournal account.

Just sos you all know. :)

Feel free to pass the rant by

I am about ready to hurt something, and I don't much care what.  Am I the only person in the world who can't get into GJ right now?  I have something like ten tags to respond to, and three different games I wanted to check, but apparently, the world is conspiring against me right now.  I'm in a really pissy mood, and I don't want to fucking deal with this right now.  Can't the world just cooperate for once?


Grrr....

It wouldn't be bothering me so much if it had been accessable at all, but I haven't been able to respond to things today, and now I can't.  And haven't since I got home four fucking hours ago.

I think I'll just go to bed now before I smash the computers.
