Ryan- Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike

  • Mood:

A few proposed FAQ changes [various categories]

I'd like to propose a few minor changes:

  • FAQ 104 [accounts]: Add "or website" as follows: You can give these links to your friends or include them in other online profiles. Please note that LiveJournal Support volunteers cannot assist you with inserting these links into programs or profiles outside of LiveJournal. If you need help adding links to third-party (non-LiveJournal) profiles, you should consult the documentation or support department of the third-party software or website for assistance.

  • FAQ 24 [friends/security]: Replace most of the last paragraph with a link to FAQ 188: While you can restrict who is allowed to read your journal, it is not possible to know exactly who is visiting your journal. You can, however, add a hit counter provided by a third party, which would count visitors to your journal and/or record their IP addresses. Information on how to add a counter to your journal can be found at http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=188.

  • FAQ 102 [friends/security]: Replace the paragraph immediately above the Security Notes heading with the following, to clarify the distinction between public and private friends groups:

    If the friends group is marked public, any user may filter your friends page to see entries only from users in this friends group by viewing http://www.livejournal.com/users/exampleusername/friends/groupname/ replacing exampleusername with your username and groupname with the name you gave the friends group. If the friends group is marked private, only you may filter your friends page in this way, and only when you are logged in (http://www.livejournal.com/login.bml). This also applies to your "Default View" group; if this group is public, anyone viewing your friends page will see entries only from the users in the "Default View" friends group. If it is private, they will see entries from all your friends. You may mark groups as public or private using the web interface (http://www.livejournal.com/friends/editgroups.bml); not all clients allow you to mark groups as public or private.

If nobody has any material objections, I'll probably update these along with the rest of the proposals from the past week or so sometime tomorrow.
