The content posted here by my fellow LJ’ers makes this a wonderful site. And pictures often say a thousand words. (Unless it’s one of those icons that makes sense only to the person that thought it up.)
Anyway, the picture upload to LJ process seems to have gotten much more cumbersome. Today it took about 1 1/2 hours to upload and attach 15 pictures to a blog entry. Three or four pictures would transfer fine and the next would just spin on the waiting to upload. And eventually it would fail with the following:
I suspect LJ’s performance problems come from the overhead of it’s marketing efforts and also understand that LJ needs revenue. But people come to this site for the content. And the content that people come here for is donated for free by the members. It behooves the people running the site to ensure that visitor’s experiences are enjoyable and make them want to contribute.
We know that LJ can be a rich environment. We’ve had that, at least for the last two years I’ve been a member. But lately we seem inundated with popups, mouse-overs, and other intrusive advertising. Please don’t sacrifice the long-term good will of this community for the short term profits of poorly implemented advertising schemes.
