Multiple Account Management for Permanent Accounts

Multiple Account Management for Permanent Accounts

Short, concise description of the idea
If a person with multiple LJ accounts buys a permanent account, make all of their accounts permanent.

Full description of the idea
I have several LJ accounts. Some I use for public "theme" journaling, some I use for private stuff. While I am interested in buying a permanent account, I would like to apply it to at least three of my accounts (i.e. I would like all of the accounts to receive permanent paid status.) Another idea is to introduce the idea of "premium accounts"; a type of paid account which costs a little more but will give more than one account paid status. I'm no longer as involved with LJ as I once was, but I still use the service, and so I would like a paid account for some of the perks- but if I'm going to spend $100, I'd like at least three accounts to have permanent paid status. It would cost me $75 per year to keep them all in paid status, and that's just more than I can afford. I can understand why more than three accounts wouldn't be economical for LJ, so I think three is a good number

An ordered list of benefits

  • Boost of account sales = more money for LJ
  • Users with multiple accounts (such as one private journal and one public) don't have to choose between them when ordering a paid account.
  • Encourage permanent involvement with LJ
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Difficulty guaranteeing that the multiple accounts are actually owned by the same user.
  • The accounts would probably have to be entered as "paid" by hand, unless some sort of payment form was created wherein users could list multiple accounts.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I really don't know enough about how LJ works behind the scenes; I stopped paying attention a year or so ago. So I don't know how implementation would go.
  • I want to stress that I don't think that unlimited accounts should be loaded onto one permanent account; three is really a practical number.
