Wednesday night, sleepy

Still congested, tired and lightheaded, so am taking it easy on the journaling front, backlog be damned. Been trucking on with my Sherlock, however--these are the books I have (I'm in the middle of the first one), and this is the third book I'm going to get. I particularly want the annotated A Study in Scarlet in the third book, for reasons that... will someday be clear, let's put it that way. Also, my soul craves the complete 12-disc Granada series set, because my first introduction to the Sherlock Holmes stories was in eighth grade when we had to read The Hound of the Baskervilles, so my English teacher also had us watch some of the Granada episodes. So basically, Jeremy Brett is Sherlock Holmes to me, even though I've seen other versions; I always liked how he got Holmes' manic-depressive energy, the way Holmes would brood and then a case would turn up and it'd be all like THE GAME IS AFOOT! And Watson would be like, "Uh, no more cocaine for you today." And didn't Natasha Richardson randomly show up in "The Copper Beeches"? Good times.

Meanwhile: The latest LJ hoohah. I'm simply going to set this information out here and let you decide as you like: Collapse )

LJ/SUP apologizes. But not in news.

The announcement last Wednesday was a mistake in regards to Basic accounts, as the change was not clearly stated, it did not allow for you to provide feedback, and went into effect immediately. Many of you have pointed out that the decision worried you less than the way it was communicated. You should have been given a voice, and you were not; we didn’t follow our own rules, and we apologize.

At this point we are working on a solution to enable existing LiveJournal users to create new Basic accounts as so many of you have requested. Nothing has been decided yet, but we are considering options which would allow existing users to continue to create new Basic accounts.

This post was originally planned to mark the end of the first 100 days and to set out our top development priorities for 2008. We will carefully consider your comments and together with Advisory Board post the final plan after the user elections in May.

Wait, what's this about user elections?
