Proposed Drafts (Title and Subtitle, Inactive Userpics, Mood and Music)

FAQ 7. This is a proposal for adding the info about how to set title and subtitle somewhere -- redfarmer proposed a new FAQ, but I think it fits fine in 7. I propose to add the paragraph below just after "The easiest way is to just change the colors or select from pre-defined system styles at"

You can also set a title and subtitle for your journal by visiting while logged in. Scroll down to the section labeled "LiveJournal Options" and type in the title and subtitle you would like. These will appear in your profile and the title will appear in the title of your journal and friends pages when viewed in a browser.

FAQ 46. asciident requested a draft for this, either to add to 46 or for a new FAQ. I think it'll fit in 46. The first clause below is the same as a clause in the current text, and the rest attaches there.

If your paid status expires and you have more images currently stored on the server than your account type allows, some of your user pictures will be marked "inactive." Which pictures will be marked "inactive" is dependent on the frequency with which each one has been used in the last six months in your own journal. The pictures you have used most frequently in your own journal will remain active: six pictures for Early Adopters, and three for users with Free Accounts.

Inactive pictures will will remain visible in all old entries or comments that you made using them. However, you will not be able to choose to use the inactive icons on new entries or comments. In order to restore the inactive icons to activity, you would need to return your account to paid status.

If you decide to upload a new picture when you are at or over the maximum for your current account type, you will need to delete pictures until you are at the correct number of pictures for your current account type and have made room for the new pictures.

FAQs 32 and 34. This is a proposed draft for combining them. The original suggestion was made by finding_helena.

Q. How do I add my current mood and current music to my journal entries?

In order to add your current mood or current music to a journal entry, you can use the full mode of the web update client (, also accessible by clicking the three dots (...) next to Update in the site menus). The web update client shows fields for Current Mood and Current Music at the bottom of the page.

To enter your current mood, you can select an option from the dropdown list, or you can leave the selection on "None, or other:" and type your mood into the text box provided.

To enter your current music, type it into the text box provided.

Many downloaded clients also support the ability to add this data to your entries. Some clients can even "auto-detect" the music playing in your preferred music player, so that you don't have to type it in. Consult your preferred client's documentation and menu options for details. See for more information about how to download a client.

If you would like any moods that you select from the dropdown list to appear with a small icon to accompany them, you can select a mood theme for your journal. Visit while logged in ( and scroll down to the section labeled "Mood Icons". Here, you can select a theme from the dropdown list. To preview the available themes, click the (preview) link next to the dropdown list, or visit Select the theme you want to use from the list, and save your changes.

Moods that you type in yourself will not appear with an icon unless they exactly match a mood from the dropdown list.

One of the many benefits of a Paid Account (other benefits are listed at is the ability to create your very own custom mood theme. Information on custom mood themes can be found in
