third linkage suggestions comment-forum

I decided to do seven today, because a couple of them are just "hmm, that sounds good." :)

What are the different account types? (38)
Suggested links to:
(142) How do I generate my invite codes? How do I invite someone else to join LiveJournal? or (103) How many invite codes can I generate?
(128) How do I make a custom style?
(123) What is the Directory? How do I use this feature?
(46) How many user pictures can I have?


These all sound good -- 103 and 142 could both be linked. We just need be careful to keep things unobtrusive and non-redundant so that it doesn't look overlinked.

We need to improve the bit about inactive userpics in 46, per asciident's suggestion from a while ago.

"a base of 15 invitation codes" in the Early Adopter account bit in 38 seems vague to me, even though I can guess what it means.

(11) How do I get validated? It says I'm currently not validated!
Suggested link to (19) How can I change the email address that LiveJournal uses?.


This could go where it says about "Every time you submit a new address," just a parenthetical link.

(17) I forgot my username / password!
Suggested link to (11) How do I get validated? It says I'm currently not validated!


This could go at the end of the second sentence of the second paragraph, a "for more information"-style link.

(103) How many invite codes can I generate?
Suggested link to (38) What are the different account types?


I don't know if this would be a big help, but it might encourage people to find out more about the differences. The link could go just at the end of the FAQ, something like "For other differences between the various account types..."

(142) How do I generate my invite codes? How do I invite someone else to join LiveJournal?
Suggested to change link from (5) It's free? to (104) How do I create an account?


I think it's okay as it is, because 5 links to 104. But I'm not opposed to changing it, because 5 is less informative. "Fully functional" in 5 is a particularly bad phrase, because it's totally undefined. What is a fully functional account? :)

(71) How should I secure my password and prevent other people from logging into my account?
Suggested links to:
(17) I forgot my username / password!, add mention of the importance of actually remembering password.
(19) How can I change the email address that LiveJournal uses?
(158) What is a downloadable client? Where can I get one?


Adding the link to 17 will be fine if it gets appropriate introduction. I'd rather add the link to 19 to 17 than directly to here.

I'm guessing that the reason for wanting to link 158 is that the last bullet point mentions downloaded clients. I think a parenthetical link right before the first comma there would be okay.

(117) Someone broke into my LiveJournal account!
Suggested links to
(11) How do I get validated? It says I'm currently not validated!
(18) How can I change my password?

This FAQ's pace is a little pell-mell and it would probably be easier to follow if it slowed down and went step-by-step. Having these links in it sounds fine to me.
