February 2017 Modpost
We hope you are all enjoying your weekends. Can you believe we are already nearing the end of February? It's crazy!
This is a very short Modpost coming to address something that we've been noticing quite rapidly on the community.
With the Secret Spring Swap (link) underway, we have been noticing quite a lot of activity in terms of sales, purchases and hunting down those hard-to-find wishes for your partners. This is awesome! This is the type of community interaction that we have been hoping to foster and you are all playing an awesome role in it!
Lately we've been alerted that a large number of members have had their accounts suspended. What does this mean? It's means that their posts are disappearing and you won't be able to contact members the way you normally can.
What to do?
If your account is suspended: Contact livejournal support as they will be best equipped to assist you with your issue.
If your partner for the SSS has their account suspended and you want to find out their wishlist? Contact areica96 through her email, and she will try to get you the information you need promptly.
If there is someone who has bought/sold with you and now they've vanished? Continue with the transaction, as they have probably fallen under this issue and are actively trying to get their credentials back.
Note that it is not the moderators on this platform that have the ability to suspend livejournal accounts, and only livejournal bots themselves can do so. We are as curious as you all are with this matter, but hopefully whatever issue has happened to livejournal, the bugs in their system are soon fixed. Thank you all for continuing to use the Report A Problem to keep us updated on these situations and letting us know. You all make our jobs easier and help us everytime you assist us with this critical information.
We'll be keeping an eye on this thread for the next few days to answer any questions or concerns as best we can. Thanks all!
