FAQ 148 (https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/148.html): Delemuring

I added the limit on usernames beginning with an underscore, switched Edit Information Page and Input Limits sections, renamed Input Limits to Other Input Limits, linked Custom Friends Group Titles to FAQ 102, changed the paragraph on mood and music to bullet points and merged it with the earlier list, checked and added Gizmo Project limit, rearranged the Entry Display Limits section, corrected the URL and page title for "X most recent entries", combined the Entry Limits and Other Limits sections, switched custom friends groups to the "described in faq" subsection, and fussed with wording.

I think it would make sense to move this FAQ to About LiveJournal from its current section, Site Navigation. Thoughts?

[FAQ 71 (https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/71.html)] Remember Me

I changed a paragraph in FAQ 71 to match the new log-in options wording (Remember Me vs Expire when your browser closes). I also added a new paragraph on clearing your browser cache.

Old:
  • If you are using a computer other people can access, your login should be set to expire when your browser closes. This will require you to manually log in each time you use LiveJournal. If your login is currently set to never expire, you can log out by clicking on the "Log out?" button or "Logout" link at the top of the page, and then quitting your browser. Go to the Log In page to change your login/logout settings.


  • New:
  • If you are using a computer other people can access, your login should not be set to Remember Me. This will require you to manually log in each time you use LiveJournal. If your login is currently set to Remember Me, you can log out by clicking on the "Log out?" button or "Logout" link at the top of the page, and then quitting your browser. Go to the Log In page to change your login/logout settings.


  • Make sure to empty your web browser's cache after using LiveJournal. This will prevent your web browser from storing old versions of LiveJournal pages.

    change in procedure!

    You might have noticed that we haven't had a humongous smackdown post lately. It's not because we're not handling the suggestions that are posted here -- many of you have gotten comments indicating that your change was handled. The reason for this is simply that we're no longer going to be using the "smackdown" system. In conjunction with this, we're also going to be formally revoking the "48-hour rule". Together, these mean that proposals are going to be handled a lot faster. Our goal is to handle all proposals within seven days of being posted.

    Now, to make sure things get handled as quickly as possible, we've created a "category docadmin" position, which means that the person is responsible for all the FAQs in a certain category. These positions are currently filled in by the supportadmins (though they don't necessarily align with their Support categories). This isn't restricted to supportadmins, though; if there's any openings in the future, we'll make sure to "advertise" here.

    You can now consider these people -- along with the four full docadmins -- responsible for the FAQs within their individual categories. (For future reference, the faqedit priv list is the definitive list.)

    FAQ #218: This might be using the old form of the URI? The Lifeblog FAQ #224 already uses the new [http://www.livejournal.com/interface/atom/feed] format. Someone needs to clarify this technical point though. :) Anyone know?

    The Lifeblog FAQ (#224) has moved to a new home in the 'Client Software' FAQcat, from 'Working with Other Sites'. bridgetester pointed out FAQ #218('how to post to LJ using generic clients') also details update methods using Atom; and, suggested bringing up the topic of whether the two FAQs should be merged.
