Livejournal Help Question
Okay, I've been away for a while so would someone please explain the deal about buying a permanent account? They're stopping payment for them on July 7th, so if someone could answer before the, that would be helpful.

If you go to the news page and scroll down a bit the original announcement is there.

Tonight (starting at Midnight EST),
Permanent Accounts will be available for purchase from our Payment Center -- look for the "Permanent Account ($150 USD)" option from the "Item" menu to add it to your order. Remember that this sale is only valid for the next 24 hours (ends tomorrow night at Midnight EST), so if you want a permanent account snag one now!

Permanent Accounts get all of the features that paid users get, and more! As an added bonus to the sale, we've bumped up the maximum number of Permanent Account user picture icons from 50 to 100. Paid users will be able to upgrade to 100 user pictures in the near future, but for now it's exclusive to Permanent Accounts.

Yup.

'fraid it was only a 24-hour window. And, judging by the comments on that entry, it had been years since they last offered them, and may be that long again before they do again.

I think they do it for such short periods of time to minimize the overhead hassle and headache generated by people making $100+ purchases online. Or it might just be to make the accounts that much more exclusive.

Yes, I believe the people above are right - it was a one-day sale. I think they're just waiting for people that were mailing in payment, to do so? Since paypal/credit cards are instant.

I'm one of the insane that bought one. I could have used that money for other things, god knows, but I used it for this instead.
