You have several choices if you want to delete or change the name of your LiveJournal account. You can use these choices to get back your comments, settings, and posts.
How to Delete My LiveJournal Account
Search for people on LiveJournal.
LiveJournal has a lot of search tools to help you find what you’re looking for, whether you’re looking for friends or a new group to join. Some of these are the search bar, the Directory, and the list of the most recent posts.
You can find people in the list or search bar by name, username, email address, and even location. You can also look for people by putting their usernames into the Search Finder’s search bar.
LiveJournal also has a blog service that is like the status posts on Facebook. You can write your own blogs and leave comments on the blogs of others. There is even a to-do list that lets you keep track of up to 150 things.
LiveJournal has more than just blog services. It also has groups. Communities are groups of people who interact with each other’s posts and comments. There are a few different kinds of communities, like ones where only members can join and ones that are just for that group.
Change your account name.
The switch feature on LiveJournal isn’t always the best way to change the name of your account. Now might be a good time to start a new blog, quit a group, or delete your account.
But before you change the name of your LiveJournal account, make sure you have an email address that works and that your current account is the same as the one you had before. If it isn’t, you might lose all of your “Friends of friends.”
You can also use the replace tool to change your username or remove people from your “Friends of Friends” list. You can also send your old login to your new one. If you have an email alias, you can change it to point to your new email address. If you don’t want to have to type it over and over again, this is the best way to do it.
Bring back posts, comments, and settings
You can bring back posts, comments, and settings to your LiveJournal account if you removed it or just want to see what’s there. If you have a Professional or Professional Plus account, you can get back the time you spent using LiveJournal services during your last payment term.
LiveJournal will lock your account for 60 days after you delete it. When you run MacJournal again, it will immediately recover your account. You’ll have to restart your account after this time. During this time, you won’t be able to access the content.
You can choose a journal to recover by using AppleScript. If you choose a book that has a comment, you can hide that comment. This is something you can do in any book, not just your own.
Screening all of a removed user’s comments at once
Hundreds of LiveJournal users are upset that their diaries were removed. Some users think the purge happened because of the watchdog group Warriors for Innocence, which says it protects children from internet abusers.
Six Apart, a company based in San Francisco, owns LiveJournal. People have called it a special service. But Six Apart has always seen keeping the site up-to-date as a duty.
When a blog violates the rights of another user, the Abuse Prevention Team shuts it down. If the person takes down the illegal content, the blog can continue. But if the person keeps breaking the rules, the blog will be closed. The person is then given a certain amount of time to remove the content.
LiveJournal has always been a special site for Six Apart. The site depends a lot on input from users, and people translate it into other languages.
Don’t accept the new terms of service; close your account.
If you don’t agree to the new terms of service, delete your LiveJournal account. The goal of this new rule is to stop material that breaks Russian law. It also stops people from trying to get people to vote for them.
There is also a new function called “screening comments” that lets the user stop people who aren’t friends from leaving comments. Other websites, like Myspace and Xanga, have added this feature.
In 2006, LiveJournal also added a new type of user called Plus. With this tool, users can sign up for ad-supported services. Users who signed up for this service will have their accounts immediately paid for the last payment cycle.
In December of last year, LiveJournal also moved its computers to Russia. This was done to stop some of the bad things that were happening on the site. It also helped improve the site’s architecture as a whole.
