paid LJ - what does everyone think?

I've been thinking of upgrading to a paid LJ account... any thoughts?

The extra icons and extra space for pictures is what tempts me the most, but is there a darker side of paid-LJs I don't know about XD;?

Extra icons are the best reason to upgrade. To my knowledge, there isn't a single bad thing about paid accounts. You don't have to look at annoying advertisements anymore either! (Except on the main LJ page)

I'll probably sign up for a paid account in the next few days then. Thanks XD. *is a wannabe icon whore, which is difficult with the 15 icon limit*

Icons are love... xD

And you have more layout options and no commercials to ruin it. ^_^

I've had a paid account for 2 years and no problems, wouldn't change it back.

I'll probably get a paid account soon then ^o^... I have such trouble with layouts, though... I'll have to look up a site for good layouts if I'm gonna pay extra XD.

When everything was going down with LJ vs. Fandom, I really considered giving up my paid account. I tried really, really hard because I didn't want to give my money to a company that couldn't be supportive of artistic ways (and who claimed that fanfic = pedophilia). I gave it up for three days and then broke down and bought it again.

The extra icons and no ads are what I'm here for (I have room for 120 icons, but it's still not enough) but there's nothing really bad about it. Except that I think it's too expensive (but I still chose to pay for it so I can't complain).

I remember LJ vs. Fandom... that was a sad time -.-. I think things have gotten better, though-- they don't just delete journals left and right anymore.

Wooow, 120 icons o.O. Sugoi, I want that XD. You got 20 extra icons for loyalty auto-paying, right? It does seem kinda expensive, but then again, I've got a job and savings, so perhaps $30 a year won't kill me XD;.

I'm pretty sure most of the 20 extra icons was for loyalty and not auto-paying. There's a break down of it somewhere in the faq that explains it. Basically if you have a paid account for such and such amount of time, you get x amount of icons.

NO WAI! Don't let me catching you paying for my account! *pokepoke* I've got money, especially with all these doujinshi I've been selling lately, so save your money for a web cam XD.
