_support, magic focus!

Username clarification in FAQ 231

In FAQ 231, the line currently reads:
You can also use your LiveJournal OpenID identity on other sites that support OpenID, using the URL http://exampleusername.livejournal.com/.

However, this isn't technically correct... we wouldn't want someone using "exampleusername" as the URL. Perhaps re-coding the FAQ to automatically populate it with the logged-in user's username?

For example, if I am viewing the FAQ, I would see:

You can also use your LiveJournal OpenID identity on other sites that support OpenID, using the URL http://androshd.livejournal.com/.

FAQ #224 (https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/224.html): Where's Nokia Lifeblog?

The link mentioned in FAQ #224 - http://www.nokia.com/lifeblog/ - redirects me to Nokia Europe / Nokia Photos - http://europe.nokia.com/photos. Nokia Photos is used to "transfer, edit, organize and share all the pictures and videos that you take with your Nseries device or digital camera" so it does not seem it is the same thing as Nokia Lifeblog.

I couldn't find Nokia Lifeblog on Nokia Europe so I don't know if it's no longer supported by Nokia, has been replaced by another client or simply doesn't work for Europeans but I think the FAQ should be updated in some way.

FAQ #38 (https://www.livejournal.com/support/faq/38.html): Sponsored Accounts?

The TOS have been updated to mention Sponsored accounts as a new account level but FAQ #38 doesn't mention them at all, maybe because one can't create a sponsored account, only upgrade to it and because one must enable Cyrillic services first. Nevertheless, I think the FAQ should be edited to reflect the TOS.

It also seems to be worth noting that, although communities can enable Cyrillic services, they can't upgrade to sponsored accounts (or use any other Cyrillic service?). I couldn't do it anyway, just switch to Plus.
