The subject of compatibility came up in another topic, and I thought I would post my response in its own topic here. Someone posted a reply about members “using the site for free”, but we are actually “content creators” who are supplying content for which the administration of the website receives money from advertisers and affiliate referrals. Ever notice how some of your text has words that are hyperlinked out to other sites? That’s how the Internet works. And those advertisements that show up in the right column and in the header are no accident either. I’m sure LJ isn’t hurting for ad revenue.
I do think it’s high time that the LJ admin starts making things better and easier for content creators. I think if they did, we’d see an increase in members, posts, and quality.
Here’s what I’d like to see:
An iOS app and better mobile compatibility
To pay for the upgrades, why not have a store with mugs/shirts/hats, tools, and signs. I’d buy one in a heartbeat. I’d also be willing to pay for a premium membership and pay for the app on my iPad. I know there’s a contributor program, but I’m making my contributions by being active on the site. If I’m going to dip into my pockets, I need some actual improvements. I’ve been on here for over three years and haven’t noticed anything upgraded or improved.
I’d love to hear an admin response
