General complaints I have include (select all that apply):
Overall, load time is worse now.
Visually, this all looks like a major setback.
WTF @ igrick's treatment of LJ's userbase.
You do know that your Russian users are pissed off too, right?
If I wanted LJ to be Facebook or Twitter, I would just use Facebook or Twitter.
You did not consult your userbase adequately before making changes none of us wanted.
Don't fix what ain't broke.
I've paid to be on LJ for many years, stuck through many bad times, and this is the last straw.
Dreamwidth and other communities show immediate care and concern for their users and I do not see that here on LJ.
Unless you can make commenting functional the way it used to be, just give me my money back.
Two weeks paid time for DDoS attacks is NOT a good enough response after thousands of comments 99.999% saying JUST ROLL IT BACK.
Other complaint not in this list.
Here's how I generally feel about the new features (quick insertion for photos / videos, highlight by new comments):
I like them and will use them.
I would like them if you would undo all the other changes that you made.
I don't care if they stay or go.
Didn't even notice them, too busy with my RAGE.
This best describes me / all the accounts I maintain (select the level that reflects your biggest financial commitment):
Paid user for one year or less.
Paid user for 2-5 years.
Paid user for 6-9 years.
Paid user for 10 years or more.
Basic / free user.
I just browse / post anon.
Extra services (icons, gifts, themes, etc):
I have paid for extra services occasionally.
I regularly pay for extra services.
I have not paid for extra services.
Number of accounts I have ever paid anything for over my time on LJ (account fees, extra icons, anything):
6+ / I lost track
Zero, but I'm helping ad revenue
If I left something out or missed something, please by all means share in comments. If you're not sure on anything or if what I put here is a little different from how you'd put it, just select what best represents you. For instance, I've been on LJ for 10 years and don't remember when I started paying or when the paying option even launched, but it's been a long time now, so I selected Paid user for 10+ years.
Tried my best to represent a majority of the responses I have read over the past day.
Thanks for voting! Please
pass this on to your friends/communities - the more votes, the better the data.
