Welcome to lj_policy!

We're glad you're here. This community will be used to gather your opinions about social and community policy.

We understand that there is a lot to absorb and process right now with the creation of LiveJournal, Inc. Since this is a transition for all of us, we want to initiate a dialogue with you, the users. We feel it is very important to hear your concerns before we release any changes to current policies, and we want to start this process right away.

As a starting point, we don't want to just guess what's important to you; we want to hear about it directly from you. Please take a moment to answer the questions below:


1) What is your greatest concern about LiveJournal's current policies?

2) Regarding your primary concern, are you aware of a site that handles that issue in a way that you like?

This is just a starting point to get your initial ideas. We know you have a lot more where these come from, and in the coming days and weeks we will make sure you have a chance to voice your opinions. We look forward to your comments.

My biggest concern is that the people in charge of LJ are, less and less, actual regular users of LJ and members of the LJ community. And, no offense to whoever you are, but the posts in this community and in lj_2008 so far are dry and jargon-filled enough that I'm more concerned about that than ever.

If I have a sense that the people in charge use the service just like I do, then I have no worries at all that the details will work themselves out.

Seconded. Ever since the sale to 6A, it feels like nobody involved in LJ policy decisions actually uses LJ; 6A just flailed around and kept wondering if they should turn LJ into Myspace or something. The "customer" became the advertisers they could sell all these tightly-networked pages to, not the people generating all those pages.

Admittedly, the need to pay for all that bandwidth means that the advertisers are a part of the customer base. But they're not the whole of it by any means.
