Permanent Account Sale
In case you weren't aware of it, Live Journal is having a permanent account sale today. It started at midnight EST and ends at midnight EST. They only offer these accounts periodically, so if you want one, now is the time to get it. See this post for more info.

Note that they do take money orders, checks, and cash if you can't pay with credit right now - and you have 30 days to get the payment to them. So if you don't have the money *today*, you have some time to get it to them.

I'm kind of disturbed this happens the day before they said they'll release their new Terms of Service. I don't think it will be too bad but still it's a little odd timing wise.

Now to figure out if I will use this for the four years to 'make it worth it'...

Ah, crap.

Damnit. I've been looking for an excuse to give LJ money for a couple of months now, and this looked perfect. But not if they're going to change the rules on me right afterwards. Whether their intentions are evil or not, this just looks really bad. No money for them until I know what the new rules are.

Thanks you both for the heads ups, though.

Re: Ah, crap.

I wonder if I could order, read the new ToS, read the feedback on the new ToS, and then decide whether to pay or cancel thanks to the 30 day rule. Do they have a cancellation option on orders or would I just become someone who backs out of deals? I rather not become one of those...

Re: Ah, crap.

You could wait, read the new TOS in the morning then send a check or money order in the mail as long as you agree to the new terms.

Why?

What does a permanent account give you over a normal paid membership (except for 100 icons). It looks like it costs the equivalent of 6 years of paid membership. Will LJ still be around at that point? In a form you'd want to use? I dunno...

Of course, I've just bought a house, so have no money to waste on this stuff, but even if I did, I dunno...

Re: Why?

One time they did give a feature to perm account users before it went live to paid users, I honestly can't remember what it was, but I'm thinking it was the photo hosting???

I've wanted one for a long time, but in my financial straights, that's LOW on the list... :(
