"Previous 20 Entries" should work for more than just the 1st 400 entries
Short, concise description of the idea
Browsing entries 20 at a time (not just one) is very convenient. Using this feature for older entries would make a lot of sense.
Full description of the idea
I like to use LJ as my regular personal journal. I like to look back at what I was doing and thinking last year and the year before, etc. But when browsing through my entries (20 at a time) I can only go back 400 entries and after that I have to view them individually, not 20 at a time. This is very inconvenient and makes me just want to not bother at all. I don't have the time to spend looking at my past entry by entry.
- I could browse my older entries like I do my newer ones, namely 20 at a time.
- I would not have a to spend a whole weekend on this each time I want to read in my journal what I was doing a year or so ago.
- I might not get mad and say "to heck with LJ I'm not paying you guys anymore."
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
- I cannot think of any drawbacks at this time and frankly I have no idea why they did not make this feature to work past 400 entries to begin with. I think this is something that irritates a lot of people when they find out.
An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
- All I can suggest is to take out whatever code in the computer thingy that STOPS one from going past 400. I don't know anything about computers but it seems to me there would have had to be something to stop the 20-entry browsing stuck in intentionally, not the other way around.
