Writer's Block: Bah Humbug Day!

[Error: unknown template qotd]

YOU REALLY WANNA START THIS WITH ME TODAY, LJ? REALLY? DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW PISSED OFF MY PLAYER IS?

Dojima, Ghanima, and I are all up for account/icon renewals, and she turned-off the auto-pay! Turned it off! Do you know how easy-going she is? You can typically enable the girl into anything so long as it's good for a laugh, and you actually made her mad.

I need my icons. She needs to be able to edit comments. More importantly, she needs to be able to view the screen without getting a migraine, so that I can be fabulous. DO YOU REALLY WANNA START THIS?

Mine turned off auto-pay, too! She's also saying that she can't look at the pages without her eyes hurting.

What in Darkness' name are they doing?!

Mine just wants to be able to comment in Firefox, seriously.

And also change the way you pick icons back to the drop down design 'cause now she can't use her tablet to sneak on LJ at work.

Celestial bronze works on... whoever the hell approved of these changes, right?

'Cause they sure as fuck are some kind of monster.

Mine didn't have auto-but she was waiting for her Paypal transfer so that she could re-up my paid account in a week when it expires. I'm kind of hoping that I won't be stuck with just blue guy and parakeet and evil diseased Lovecraftian beast icons now, because she's saying that she'll find a way to work them in if she damn well has to.

... Alternating between tiny and beaky, blue and mid-30s, and screaming rage-claws isn't a good look for me. It's not.

My mun is pissed. I'm tempted to go and give these people a piece of my mind. And the worse part--of the two of us, I am probably going to be the most diplomatic. There's something about sitting in a chair at the hospital with a spike in her arm on their slow-ass internet connection that just erodes at her ability to communicate without resorting to threats and profanity.

You know, I wouldn't mind, uhh, "speaking" on our mun's behalf (and it's ours not yours, no matter how much more you get out). I feel like I could make several very cogent points.

There's a joke about bullet points I'm just not even going to make

Between my writer, the other girls in her head space, and myself, I think I'm the only one that won't immediately try to strangle someone if they get within reach.

When that empath wants to hurt landens, you know there is an issue.

.............................................................................................................

no seriously what the fuck is this shit. O.O

I can't even -- how do I change icons? I click and my icon-box turns red and nothing happens. Am I supposed to get a pop-up? I am not getting a pop-up, a drop-down, anything.

What the fuck, LJ?

... why is it also nesting with only 29 comments on the page?
vanillajello: (Oh my God you are so full of--)

[personal profile] vanillajello 2011-12-21 06:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm being pushed to the forefront because apparently I have the best words for these situations. So, my words:

WHAT. WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK, LJ? WHY WOULD YOU FIX SOMETHING THAT ISN'T BROKEN? WE WERE DOING JUST FINE! I HAD SEVENTY BILLION ICONS FOR HER TO CHOOSE FROM WITH EASE AND NOW IT TOOK HER FOREVER TO FIND THIS ONE BECAUSE FUCK IF SHE REMEMBERS KEYWORDS. AND WHAT ABOUT PICNIC POSTS?! THERE'LL BE ANARCHY WITHOUT PROPER OCD!

... I don't know what that last bit means but she's really pissed about it.

Seriously LJ, stop being a twatwaffle.

Because seriously, I want to go to Russia and explain in my native tongue to [livejournal.com profile] igrick that he is not the "CHIEF OF LJ" he is an oblivious cat-screwing mother-humping nightmare with the con-artist skills of a mentally deficient ninety-year-old.

Also, if we could get *one* straight answer from my LJ team, my mun would not be grinding her teeth about whoever thought this was a good idea. Just one.

UNLEASH THE DOGS AND NANITES OF WAR, TOPHER!

If you go to http://www.livejournal.com/customize/ and go to the bottom to click on "Customize selected theme" and then change 'Disable customized comment pages for your journal' to 'No', you get back subject line and proper icon selection. The colors are often ugly and glaring, but if you then go up and click "Style' on the left side under 'Display', click 'expand all' under colors and scroll down to the comments section. I don't know what all the color commands are so I changed both 'Text color on alternating comment bars (one)' and 'Text color on alternating comment bars (two)' to #000000 (which is plain black) and 'Alternating background color for comment bars (one)' and 'Alternating background color for comment bars (two)' to #aaaaaa (which is a grey color).

It's not ideal, but it doesn't make my eyes bleed and I get a subject line and comments. And as long as you have it checked to read journals and communities in your own style you can do the same everywhere. At least till they wreck it more.

In other news, I can't reply to people in Firefox, I can't seem to get any icon options at all, and about half the time the "Post a new comment" box is grayed out for no good reason. Is this like a known thing?

[identity profile] trickydemigod.livejournal.com 2011-12-21 06:36 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah I'm using Chrome now because I can't comment in Firefox at all

[identity profile] shaladoran.livejournal.com 2011-12-21 06:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, NPC, but I wanted to show (http://lj-releases.livejournal.com/71858.html?thread=7171506#t7171506) what the writer just found and made her make several suggestions about what they could do with parts of their anatomy.

Okay. When your LJ release page is filled with almost six thousand comments filled with complaints?

It's time to roll back. ROLL BACK. Just roll it on back. Roll out the barrel. Roll call. Roll on the floor laughing because this update was an epic fail.

ROLL.

BACK.

WAIT! That wasn't even the icon I chose! WTF? Seriously? Who beta'd this a bunch of monkeys?

[identity profile] answer2bheard.livejournal.com 2011-12-21 07:30 pm (UTC)(link)
... Oh. That's kind of. Um.

I've spent the past few months on a ship that was mostly crewed by pirates. Ones that overthrew the ship, killed the first mate, and tried to do the same to myself, the Captain, and Dr. Doppler.

This sort of reminds me of that.

SUBJECT: SUBJECTS

She's talking about Dreamwidth again, even though she hates change. And doesn't think it would really help all that much. The amount of comm-splitting and fandom-splitting that would happen would royally screw up everything.

And thinking that Fic of LJ Revenge might help cope. Send Gibbs after them. Inflict the Leverage team on them. Have Neal Caffrey steal all their profits and redistribute them.

Bummmmmmmmed.

Do you think you could ask a couple of your cousins to care of things for us? I hear they have some Russian connections that might come in handy.

I WILL BE NICE TO TOPHER IF THEY CHANGE THIS BACK RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

I don't know if it will do any good, but I submitted a feedback to the people in charge and I was even polite!

[identity profile] walks-two-paths.livejournal.com 2011-12-21 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Gah.

I can't respond via e-mail any longer because it makes the response come from whatever journal I'm currently logged into instead of the journal that was commented to!

[identity profile] new-it-girl.livejournal.com 2011-12-21 09:24 pm (UTC)(link)
My player is so annoyed, she made journals for me and Piper at Dreamwidth! She's even importing stuff! Usually, she is too lazy for this sort of thing. This is not exactly the kind of motivation she was looking for...

Oh, she's not renewing Piper's LJ in 12 days. And she's not going to renew me in February unless things change. So that probably means I won't have enough icons in a few months, because I don't expect them to fix this. Bummer.

Mine keeps muttering about how I should invest in social media because 'at least I'm going to be semi-competent evil', I think she has me mixed up with my dad.
