Okay, I am now officially pissed off at LJ. First a bunch of my icons disappear and now I'm not getting any LJ notifications or comments. Can't LJ just stop fucking around and leave things alone when they were working fine. LJ, I do hate you sometimes *shakes fist at the LJ PTB*. If I didn't have so many friends here on LJ, I'd be very tempted to leave and go hang out over at Dreamwidth.

So if you happen to comment on my journal and I don't answer you, it's not 'cuz I'm ignoring you, put the blame on LJ. GRRRRR!!!!

It's not totally their fault this time; they got hit by hackers yesterday, big time and there's still some fallout like missing icons.

Annoying though, for sure :-(

Thanks for letting me know! It's so frustrating, but [livejournal.com profile] tattooedraven made a good point, it's not worth the energy getting made, soooo I'm doing my best to let it go *g*

If LJ was hacked what does that do to our credit card information that they have. That's a little scary.

Good question! Hopefully the hackers didn't get into that information! Geez!

Hopefully they would be good enough to advise their clients if that happened.

Yeah, one can only hope!!

lol! Well they just announced in LJ News they've successfully restored user pics and if you are still having problems, refresh your page and it should reset it. It's all still based on the Ddos attacks since the 25th.

Don't go to Dream Width! It's full of whiners just like IJ was before DW. LJ is worth it IMO. I wouldn't want to leave my friends. Just take a breath, its not worth the energy of getting mad for attacks that aren't LJ's fault. Blame the stupid ass hackers.

Okay, I hadn't realized they'd been hacked. Don't people have better things to do with their time? Apparently not *sighs*

My userpics seem to be back again. This is like the third time this has happened in past two days that they've disappeared, then come back, only to disappear again.

I'm not going anywhere. I love my friends here too much to up and leave. I do have a DW account, but I never use it. I much perfer LJ.

Take care, hon! *hugs*

No worries everyone - or most everyone is having similar issues.

Well, if anything, it's nice to be surrounded by such wonderful company *g*

Exactly we can commiserate about LJ being broken.

Hey, Chris. I had to laugh when I saw your two angry pic uploads, then I read your post. Sorry for your troubles! I'm glad to hear LJ has recovered from the attack.

Have a great weekend.

LOL! Yeah, I was gearing up for the 'angry' rant *g*. My icons seem to be back again \o/ But that happened yesterday, too. They were all there, then a bunch disappeared, then came back, then they disappeared again today and now they're back again. It's enough to give a person whiplash!

You have a great weekend too!! Take care!

Hugs, Chris

Glad to see you've decided not to leave us...in spite of the ongoing frustration. With luck LJ will get things worked out soon, though they probably won't keep it that way...Talk to you soon, love.

I'm not going anywhere! I really do like LJ, except when it's acting up, but I wouldn't want to move to a different journal provider.

I just wish that LJ would leave things alone when things are running smoothly. Kip is an IT Tech/Manager and even he said that when updates are done or things are changed, it's always 100% sure that it will cause other problems. Sometimes it's just minor fixes but other times it causes major problems. I'm all for the old adage... if it ain't broke, don't fix it! *g*

Hope you are well!

Hugs, Chris xxx

I had the same problem for a few weeks. You can go to "settings" and let all your messages be sent to your in-box, so you'll be able to keep track. Worked just fine for me for the time it was fucked up.

Good idea! I seem to be getting my notifications now, but if they up and disappear again, I'll definitely remember this.

Thanks, hon!

LJ has been slow as fuck lately. It was particularly annoying...

Yeah, It's very annoying. Makes you want to have a stiff drink, kinda like the one in your icon *grins*

I couldn't even get LJ to load on Wednesday night, at the height of the denial-of-service attacks. There are still a couple of lj sites I can't get into, but all should be fixed over the next few days.

I have a DW account also, but my friends all live on LJ so my mail presence is here. I hope you'll stay! Your icons should all be restored soon, they're working on the remaining bugs in the system. And - they've announced that the attacks led to them upgrading their servers, so the site should run faster from now on.

Everything seems to be working at the moment. My icons have returned home and I seem to be getting all my notifications/comments. Hopefully it'll stay that way *crosses fingers*
