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.

So, being that I have repeatedly communicated both to you, Chris Alden, and others exactly what the concerns of myself 1000+ are in telephone conversations, emails, and hard copies, do I need to post them here as well in order to ensure that they are heard? And if I do, is there any point in doing so?

You have now announced the creation of an advisory board with members to do the job that I have been doing on my own and to no avail for nearly 6 months now in advising you of ongoing controversies, user concerns, and ideas on what it would take to fix the problems. So far everything that I have told you guys has been met with assurances that haven't been backed by actions. I have repeatedly reassured other users that I have spoken with you and that I have been reassured that things are progressing at a rapid pace. I have tried very hard to find a balance between understanding that you guys are running a business and representing the interests and concerns of users who trusted me to speak for them. If our well thought out and reasonable concerns and requests have been ignored up until now, and are continuing to be ignored even as you and marta have gone through the comments answering the same questions about the effects of the acquisition on permanent accounts over and over again, then I am not certain that I see any point in repeating myself yet again here in this community.

Can you give us any reason at all to believe that concerns expressed here and/or through the Advisory Board will be listened to and addressed any more than the concerns of thousands of users in various news, lj_biz, emails, phone calls, and open letters have been up until now?


Word. I found LJ eager to talk to me as a "thought leader" and the second I slowed down my ranting about their policy decisions in my LJ because I thoguht thigns were going to improve, they stopped communicating.
