I went to upload a few new SuJu icons I'd made into my sad 100 userpics this afternoon and found this:
I thought it was weird and a glitch. Nevertheless, I started uploading more and more icons to see if that number would drop and the glitch would fix. I mentioned it to a friend who asked if LJ had upped the icon count again. But to 132? What a random number.
And then, like ten minutes ago, this showed up on the main page:
"We're also excited to announce the Loyalty Userpics program for paid account holders. For every three months that you have a paid account, we will award you one bonus userpic. Permanent account holders will always have the maximum amount of Loyalty Userpics possible, which as of today is 32 (bringing their total to 132), and will accrue Loyalty Userpics at the same rate going forward."
So now I'm sitting here with this smug-ass look on my face, just eating up the fact that my icons are going to go up forever because of my sexy as fuck permanent account.
A-thank you, LiveJournal.
