cairistiona: (just thinkin')
Anybody else having troubles with icons in comments? No matter which user pic I choose, it shows my default one. My userpics all seem to be there, and I can change them on my posts, but just not on comments. I also noticed the "post new entry" button is gone from the top right corner of the new-layout pages (it's still there as a choice in the drop-down under My Journal).

I guess LJ is diddling with stuff. But if you post something serious and I respond with my happy Aragorn icon, I mean no disrespect... LJ just won't let me use another!

My friends' page now looks to be in my own journal style instead of the other. Hmm. I actually kinda liked it the other way because I had a very nice background made up of one of Viggo's photographs. But I also like my own style, so... whatever, I guess?

Betting this is is just a temporary glitch.

Hmmph. Been wanting an excuse to use the above icon but not this:



"DDoS attack!


LiveJournal is currently under a DDoS attack, and the site may be slow or inaccessible for short periods of time. We are actively fighting this attack, and working to restore normal functionality of the site as quickly as possible. Thank you for your support and patience!"




So, if any of you are having difficulties with posting and/or commenting, no need to panic, I guess.

If any of you read through the comments on today's (Aug 7) Aragorn-a-Day, you'll see that there was an issue with one of the photos inexplicably disappearing.  This is the second time this has happened, where I've posted a photo from my Scrapbook, and to me, viewing it on Firefox, it's visible, but when someone looks at it with Explorer (usually Nath, as she's the quickest off the draw!), they see only the dreaded red "x" box.  Then, as the day goes by, it also disappears from Firefox, and worse, it disappears from my Scrapbook! Both times I've quickly uploaded a copy to Photobucket, so I haven't actually lost any photos (thank goodness for the Photobucket Uploader add-on).  But I fear if I hadn't found out about the problem soon enough, I might have.

From here on out, if I use a Scrapbook photo, I'll go ahead and make a copy of it to my Photobucket account. But because I don't often go back looking at older posts, my request is this: if you ever, on any post with photos, either personal or of Aragorn, Viggo, etc., notice that a photo has gone missing, could you let me know as soon as possible, via comment or private message if you're one of those that follows A-a-Day without commenting? (I'll be sure to allow PMs from anyone--at the moment I'm not sure my account is set up that way.) If I can still view it from the cache, I can upload it to Photobucket. Otherwise I fear it may be gone forever (or, realistically, gone until I can reupload it from my personal photos or find it somewhere via google, which with the way websites disappear, sometimes doesn't work.  Indeed, many of my photos of Aragorn came from sites that are now defunct).

I've put in a support request to LJ about this issue but it's so intermittent, I have little hope they'll fix it. It's a bit maddening, to say the least!

This from the LJ status site:

Notification emails are delayed due to a larger than normal backlog of emails to be sent. LiveJournal administrators are aware of the problem, and are working to resolve this as quickly as possible. Status Updated: 7:00 pm GMT (Friday, February 10)

Just an FYI for y'all.  And an excuse to use my Kili icon.  *points*  He really could have been Halbarad.... *sigh*

It's been ages since I got any notifications via email, so I've been using the LJ inbox.  But now I can't access it, either.  If you've left a comment on an older post or left a reply to a comment I made on one of your posts that needs a reply, I'll get to them when LJ decides to let me see my messages again.  I can keep up with comments left on the last couple of posts but no way do I have time to dig through all my posts seeing if there's a new comment I need to reply to.  And I hate that, because I have this thing about wanting to be sure I make timely replies to everyone kind enough to comment on a post.

*grumblemuttergrumble*

Edit:  Methinks my inbox is working again.  And I also just got a slew of old notifications in my email.  Oh LJ, you are so fun.  And probably going to be giving us all fits when the next release comes out and "improves" things. 

I will keep my aspirin handy.
