Thank you, Livejournal, for having a statistic that makes me remember ONE good reason for staying

...Still, if you break the uploading feature, I'm going to be VERY annoyed.

What fresh horror is the new LJ layout?

It looks like a robotic, super-flat PARODY of the bland LJ comment pages!

...I'll admit, it looks mildly classier, but it still looks like an atrocity.

Just... bwahaha....

I'm glad I'm on Dreamwidth now...

Thank you, Livejournal, for making your image-uploading more clunky and painful than EVER before.

I may get what I deserve for using you primarily as my image-hosting service these days, but good gad.

Here's a tip, numbskulls - make the site actually enjoyable to use, rather than constantly adding on crappy glitz that does nothing useful and may even impede service.

I mean, you'd think that wouldn't be hard, right? Right?

*groan* It's still usable, at least. I suppose I should be grateful for that.

Something's BADLY off about LJ's Social Capital calculations.

Social Capital is an indicator that reflects the influence of a specific user or community on LiveJournal. Social Capital is intended to identify how active and influential a user or community is. Each account's Social Capital is based on many different criteria, including the number of users who have added the journal or community to their Friends list, and various other activity throughout the site: how old and active the account is, do they leave comments in other journals and communities, how often do they log in, and many other factors that differentiate real users from bot accounts.

Except... ah... I have Social Capital 11. Here are my stats.
  • 1,907 journal entries
  • 5,850 comments posted
  • 4,590 comments received
  • Friend of 61 [most of them gone from LJ]
Here is the almighty [ profile] kippurbird :
  • 2,050 journal entries
  • 13,594 comments posted
  • 26,393 comments received
  • Friend of 201
Oh, and as far as the age? Kippurbird's account was created in 2003, mine in 2007.

What in BLAZES is going on here? What sort of insane formula could possibly give me more Social Capital than Kippurbird?

Meanwhile, [ profile] a_sporking_rat  (who is hilarious), has the following stats for a rating of 14 Social Capital:
Her journal was created less than a year ago.

There's something badly wrong here. Why can't LJ make its own social-status formula work in any sensible way?
