Well heck, the benefits of being a permanent member just keep getting better.... - Paint It Black

Well heck, the benefits of being a permanent member just keep getting better....
Earlier today there was an announcement in the LiveJournal news account that users are now able to buy additional userpics for their account at a very reasonable rate (although you have to be a paid user first to do so). Paid users could go from their maximum of 10 pictures to 20 for an additional $10 US a year. People like myself and roho with permanent accounts were automatically bumped to the maximum of 20 pictures as well as a "perk" for being a permanent member of LiveJournal.

About fifteen hours later there was a follow up entry posted to the original announcement, and I was both surprised and pleased by it. The first time I read it I misunderstood what was being said and thought that the maximum number of userpics had been moved from 20 to 30 -- still a pretty generous move in and of itself. After I re-read the entry I came to realize that I had read it wrong the first time... LiveJournal hadn't increased the maximum to 30 userpics, they had increased the maximum by thirty. I wasn't sure if this perk was automatically extended to my account, but after checking out this updated FAQ I have confirmed I have 50 userpics as my new limit.

I continue to stand by my assertion that buying a permanent account was the best thing I ever did with LiveJournal (aside from when I originally signed up back in 2001). Little benefits like this just keep showing up when I least expect them.

Now it's time to get to work filling those newly empty slots! I think I commissioned ashryn at sone point for a few userpics but I don't remember for certain so now I have to go back through my records and see if I actually did or not. Anybody else interested in making some money on the side?

[I am....if you are interested at all]

I am indeed interested, dude, so let's talk! E-mail me via feren-at-livejournal.com and we can discuss pricing, ideas and all that good stuff, okay?

Anybody else? Step on up and take my money!

I'll make you some for free if I'm allowed to use existing art / pictures / anime screencaps / other things that are Photoshoppable. You don't want to see my attempts at actually *drawing*, and you certainly don't want to pay for them. :D

I'm intrigued and would like that a lot, thank you!

Hee. They're addictive, aren't they?

No problem. What kind would you like? Name a series, or a character, or point me to a picture / set of pictures, and I'll return you 5-10, and hopefully you'll get one or two useable out of that. :D

Hee. They're addictive, aren't they?

They sure are...to the point that I'm almost burnt out after uploading and cleverly-naming 20, and now I have to think about what to do for the other 30.

It's probably a bad sign when I want to throw out half the ones I've ever made and replace them with Brand New Ones I have yet to make, isn't it?

Ack! I'm glad I saw this! You DID! Wow, I'm a PUTZ. :D

I'll start work on those immediately. Contact me via aim as Carysse sometime about anything else. ^_^ Like... things you'd -want-, say. Heehee.

You know I always am. ;)

But then, I'll do them for free, too.
