To reward you for the paid account time you've had in the past, we are going to increase your limits retroactively. If you want to earn your retroactive Loyalty Userpics, make sure you are a current paid account member or that you renew your paid account within the next 30 days (our retroactive offer expires at midnight GMT on April 14, 2006). Permanent account holders will always have the maximum amount of Loyalty Userpics possible, which as of today is 32 (bringing their total to 132), and will accrue Loyalty Userpics at the same rate going forward. Please see the FAQ for additional details. It might take a little while for your retroactive userpics to kick in, but you should see them shortly.
Also via news, apparently they managed to complete the major hardware upgrade in less than 10 minutes, half of their prediction. Major props to livejournal. And there's now a feature that'll play the voice post recording directly from our browser... Hmm.. I need to check that out.
