Just When I Get Settled in...This Happens!!  
I was just going through my f-list messages and came across this link on whisper99's LJ! O_o I am so distressed right now. What will this mean for the future of LiveJournal? It was extremely upsetting reading about so many people being laid off without any severence. D: I just feel like crying! I've grown to truly love LJ and all of you have become like my family.*hugs* Not to mention the fact that I'm still learning all the ins & outs of this, so I can't imagine it closing down.

What do you guys think? I know I'm panicking but it's what I do best...

Stop, what? You mean...LJ will not exist anymore?! D:

I'm not entirely sure, but it sounds like it's a possibility! I couldn't quite tell from that article exactly what happened. I truly hope it won't ever happen, I'll be lost with LJ and my flist! D`:

I don't get what was written there too LOL Hmm I do not think something will happen :'/ I hope so!!! HOW will I live without you!

I wish I knew someone official to ask about this? Any ideas?
sith_romantic on January 6th, 2009 07:49 pm (UTC)
Noo ha, I'm not the help here. lj_maintenance?
Kristin: Winter #2kristypadalecki on January 6th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
I didn't mean that to sound bad. *facepalm* I checked lj_maintenance but there doesn't seem to be any activity over there...
sith_romantic on January 6th, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
Really don't know. At least...if it will stop working, we'll understand it...(

I looked at news & lj_feedback and don't see any news about this so I just don't know what to think! Hopefully they will inform us before anything drastic is done. *fingers crossed"

OMG, it will really suck if this site goes down. I feel like I just got to where I was posting regularly here again, b/c the same thing happened to Greatestjournal. I mean, it still exists, but you can't update or anything. And I always liked LJ better than GJ anyway, so it wasn't a big loss. But this will really bum me out, b/c there isn't a place I like better than LJ!

Maybe they'll give us some warning so we can get contact info for our friends!

If LJ goes under, this will be the THIRD online journal I've kept that has gone kaput (my bolt.com journal being the first...and all that info is lost forever!)! :/

I'll be really heartbroken if LJ goes down. This is the first place I came to for a journal, so I'm not even familiar with those other sites you mentioned. I really like LJ though and hate to lose it just when I've gotten the hang of everything here. D:

I wish there would be some more news about it somewhere, I hate being in limbo about things. v_v

Thanks for sharing this link, it makes me feel somewhat better!

Eep! I really hope that's not true! I love livejournal! I don't know what I'd do without it. :(

I know! I really hope it won't come to that.

I'd be very, very, very sad if that happened. LJ is the one place where I can 'stick' if that makes sense. I've met so many nice people on here . . . while it's hopefully only a rumor, it still irritates me that they would go after LJ first when MySpace and Facebook are really crummy and pointless.
Kristin: Dominic- Smilekristypadalecki on January 7th, 2009 01:15 am (UTC)
I'll be really sad too. I've finally found a place that I truly enjoy spending time. I don't care for MySpace or Facebook either, they're not really for me.

God, if they shut LJ down that would kill me. My favorite place on the internet just GONE. D:

I know, I feel the same way! *weeps*

I know! I wish we could find out what's happening. Shouldn't the LJ staff inform us of something??
Erin: Tulip; Openbjtp on January 7th, 2009 10:59 am (UTC)
Yes, it is worrying, and freaked a lot of people out. There is another sote called 'insane journal' that people have been setting up back-up-journals at, but a lot of people think the article is over-exaggerated!
Kristin: Christmas- Treekristypadalecki on January 7th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
I know about Insane Journal but it doesn't look nearly as nice as LJ and I really don't want to have to move everything! I truly hope that article was an over-exaggeration. D:
Erin: Frodo; Don't Look At The Lightsbjtp on January 7th, 2009 05:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I have heard people saying that it is rather bare and blank. I hope its just a mountain out of a molehill, too. I can't see them just suddenly getting rid of it, especially with so many people having Paid Accounts and stuff.
Kristin: Pippin- Black & Whitekristypadalecki on January 7th, 2009 08:10 pm (UTC)
Insane Journal is totally boring, from the little I've looked at it! I seriously don't see how they can get rid of LJ either. There are so many people here and it seems like they make enough money off of us, between paid/perm accounts, userpics, etc.
Erin: Legolasbjtp on January 7th, 2009 08:20 pm (UTC)
Exactly! We should start a petition!
Kristin: LotR- Hobbits <3kristypadalecki on January 7th, 2009 09:27 pm (UTC)
I definitely agree! Any ideas on how one starts a petition? :D
Erin: Cartoon; Gimlibjtp on January 7th, 2009 09:35 pm (UTC)
Not really. There's loads of sites that will host one for you though, or you could just pass it through LJ via tagging people, I guess.
Kristin: Pippinkristypadalecki on January 7th, 2009 10:06 pm (UTC)
I would think that the LJ staff should send out some kind of mass message to everyone and let us know what is going to happen! This not knowing and constant what ifing is driving me batty! O_o
