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 LiveJournal's tendency to take a act-then-react stance towards major system changes, notably without providing a method to adapt to the changes, starting with changes after the introduction of the Vertigo site scheme.

Vertigo itself received lots of feedback and testing from users. Indeed, I expected it far sooner than it actually showed up. However, the 1000 tag limit and the increased usage limit on tags were introduced with short or no notice, forcing users to react to them and LiveJournal to react to its users. The inability to merge existing tags is a key factor in this. Had there been a warning that a new tag limit was coming, users could have spent some time reducing the number of tags they have to limit effects on their journals.

Those are just major examples, but they serve my purpose.

seconded. end of message.


I agree completely with this.

Additionally, I would like some more clarification on the TOS, which has been promised since June.
