December Holiday Promotion - Points Bonus on all orders!

It's that time of year again -- the calendar year is drawing to a close, the end-of-year holidays are nearly upon us, and Dreamwidth would like to say "thank you" to everyone who decides to give their friends (or themselves) a holiday gift of DW paid time.

From now until the end of December, all orders made in the Dreamwidth Shop will receive a 10% points bonus for future use. For instance, if you buy yourself a 12 month paid account (350 points), we'll give you 35 points to spend later when you complete your order.

This is our way of saying "thank you!" to everyone who helps to support Dreamwidth, and helps us to continue being independent, user-supported, and ad-free. Our commitment to remaining free of fiscal pressure from outside interests and 100% devoted to providing our users the best service possible is only possible because of you, and we'd like to thank everyone who supports us.

Happy holidays from Dreamwidth!

This is an awesome opportunity! Thank you :)

If you're buying the paid time as a gift, do they get the bonus? Obviously I don't have much use for bonus points having a seed account

Of course, this happens the day after I buy my account. I have the worst timing, but good to know for future orders.

What is the status of virtual gifts? I have a permanent account, so I don't often buy points, but I might give virtual gifts a lot.

I kept meaning to renew my account, and I kept forgetting, and then I saw this and went "oh, hey, 35 extra points if I actually get up, get my wallet, and renew before I forget again". Success! :D

I have a Seed Account, but that's good to know!

PS: I think I already know the answer to this one, but DW does not intend to delete "inactive" accounts for the purpose of purging, is that correct?

Very Important

[personal profile] babysprite 2011-12-05 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)

You're quite welcome and DW is well worth supporting on behalf of myself and to help keep DW commercial-free for all DW users. Oh, yes. Very important.

Please stay independent of the commercial interests. I have seen it year after year that each successive buyout or takeover ends worse than the previous.

Voluntary support is by far, the best business model for the Internet; much more so that covert aggregation and dissemination of user information, pop-up or banner advertising.

I can do without the bells, gimmicks and whistles for clean base code that's kept updated and maintained and I'm more than happy to help pay my fair share of the cost of keeping it so.

Happy Holidays to you, Ms. D and all the gang at Dreamwidth!

*kicking self for buying not one, but TWO paid accounts for myself in November*

Oh well, DW is worth supporting, and I'd do it with or without the incentives. Thank you for being. :)

Although I wish, wish, wish that LJ-import would work. I tried again after the announcement it was fixed, and no luck yet.

Question about Migration!

[personal profile] murdering 2011-12-12 11:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I've been trying to migrate things over and struggling a bit; in the end, I used a python script, but I want to test how it would work if I were to bring over a large community with a large number of comments in entries. Is the migrate system still comment-functional, or is it having issues due to the changes LJ's made recently?

lash: (Ha ha!)

[personal profile] lash 2011-12-14 02:36 am (UTC)(link)

Dreamwidth has always been my favorite alternative to LJ due to the fast response times, the overall mission and constant updating. There is actually just one thing that would possibly make a few people I know move here, and it's our icons. I would not hesitate to support DW if there was a paid option just for extra user pictures and nothing else. Has this been discussed before?

I really do apologize if this has been asked before. RPers just tend to really, really like their icons (myself included, although I do find it amusing that before I was perfectly contempt with just one on message board. How time flies!)

Thank you so much!

This is actually...vaguely related to [personal profile] lash's question, but it has more to do with your premium paid option.

Have you guys ever considered being able to buy three months of premium paid time or is it just not cost effective for you guys? (My apologizes if it was already answered using those nifty explanations you linked.
