Potential Move to AWS

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm reading through the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. I don't think anything there precludes hosting InsaneJournal there. I feel that our existing Terms of Service falls in line with this. I'd love to have an open discussion about this, so please comment with concerns. Please keep all conversations civil.

Updated Default Comment Settings

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Based on the overwhelming feedback from our previous post, we have taken the following actions. First we have changed the default value for who you can receive comments from. All new journals now default to allowing comments from only registered users.

We have also made a one time change to all journals. If you previously allowed comments from "Everybody", we have updated your settings to "Registered Users". This effectively disabled Anonymous comments site wide.

If you would like to return your comment settings to allow anonymous comments, you can simply to go and set the "Enable Commenting From: " setting back to "Everybody".

Ads Gone (For Now)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
We have gone back through this month's money from our Patreon campaign and have found that the failed payments have gone through and we've pushed past our goal! So I've disabled ads and as long as we continue to keep meeting that number, we'll keep this place ad free!

Guys this is HUGE, help us push it over the top!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Due to popular demand, we have returned our 10 pack rename token reward tier. We have however removed the 6-month paid account from it, however we have dropped the tier from $25 to $20. This means you get 10 rename tokens for the price of a single 5 pack. This is a limited reward tier for only 20 people.

Fight Against Comment Spam

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
We have taken additional action against the comment spam that has been happening including banning certain text from comments as well as limiting the rate anonymous users can comment. Hopefully this will make a big impact and keep you guys from having to put up with this annoying problem.
