Converting From Friends Only

Switching out of Friends Only [most of the time.] It's not needed anymore since... well, times have changed! Doesn't mean that Friends status isn't important to me, it is, it always will be :) You can talk to me by messaging me through my LJ mailbox to become a Friend, if you're not, already [it's at the top of of my Profile page]. But to get access to my J, well, almost always not necessary because you'll have it now.

I am a total LJ newbie as of August 2007 [thanks to Kiota.] It's Feb 12, 2008, this day, and I'm not quite so wet behind the ears now. Hopefully.

Well, we're about 3.5 hours into the suspension and I haven't heard anything on my requests for information. As soon as I find out I will post here, for everybody.

LifeWithLogan has suggested that LJ ought to be notified that Kiota has died and should come under their memorial-journal status. I guess nobody has ever done that? So I'll go do that also, right now.

Wow, I just noticed that she'd been suspended and thought I'd ask you if you knew anything. Unfortunately the only thing I have to offer is not very encouraging - a friend of mine (fka popartagenda was suspended about a week ago for shaky, unspecific reasons and LJ would not give her her account back (and it had been paid until x date in the future.) Inquiries from friends were met only with a blanket statement about confidentiality. She's back under a new name, but all her writing and pictures from her old journal were lost.

Obviously circumstances are a bit different for kiota...

I did not mean this to be so discouraging. It does seem odd and out of the blue... Good luck with all your efforts. I don't know if anyone has said this to you outright but I think it's really amazing how much you are doing to honor her memory and make sure she lives on through her writing and influence.

Well, LIR, thank you a lot for your compliments!

What I'm doing to honor Kiota will go on regardless of what happens to her J and where all that goes from here.

There's one bit of mist I can pass on: one of us noticed that the very last entries to her J before suspension involved someone who asked about the details of how she went through with her sacrifice --- and then someone else posted, who gave a detailed answer. The observer had a hunch that LJ got all pissed off at this and did the immediate suspension. I was in there just before that time and I hadn't noticed anything like that.

Weeks ago cruciatus_x deflected the same question out of Kiota's J and promised to fill anyone in if they wanted that info, via personal Emails. I think it was something like 16 - 20 or more of us published their Email addys in Kiota's J so they could have her reply [I was not one of them.] So maybe this is what triggered LJ Abuse or the TOS Violation Team or whomever.

I expect to hear something back that's more definite than your friend because just three - four days ago I contributed money to renew her account for a year --- since it is such a perfect place for so many of us to meet ...

And, again: you are very kind to me to say that. Thank you, deeply.


kiota too late for the stars
