OMG! - alyburns' (aka sideburns & alyjude) Hiding Place
If you spoke faster than David Hewlett you’d travel back in time: Michael Shanks
Live Journal just replaced ALL my cut-tags over a alysbasement (AND MY INTRO PAGE) with their own, which says that crap about entering an area for adults, yadda yadda. I can't believe it. I mean, it was bad enough when the white box appeared when clicking on my site (you know the one, where you have to click that yes, you're over 18 or 21 or whatever-the-hell the age), but to DOUBLE-DO the age crap by doing away with EVERY SINGLE PAGE and replacing it with the same cut-tag????

I may have to leave LJ after all. This is just one step too many and one more invasion of my rights than I can stand. I would have accepted the white box by itself, but this? NO.


...i might be a bit pissed....

Okay, the implication for that page is that it's been deleted somehow. Any thoughts as to how LJ may have managed *that* for you?

None whatsoever!

and sometimes, you don't get the goat - you get the page, but it's empty. And now, on the other pages, when I go to edit? I get a bunch of html coding instead of the 'rich text' page I usually get, so I can't make changes! *cries in soup*

Is it paranoia if you think someone's out to get you? *G*

I'm not seeing that, at your basement everything looks fine. *But* I'm looking at it while logged in, so I never get those warning boxes. And its been a couple of hours.

-Oh! Yes I would be totally pissed off too! I just went & looked in a diff browser, not logged in. clicking the damn age box once is more than enough. But, I kind of think its always been like this if you're not logged in. Really, I have a vague memory of looking at my LJ once after I had cleared my cache & everything was the stupid age warning thing.

Well, that was totally new to me

I go over all the time (unlogged) to see if there are any new comments (LJ has stopped sending them to my email *rolls eyes*) and then, if there are, I log in. And no matter what, I've never had this happen before. I think LJ is messing with me. *G*

Yeah, everything at alysbasement looks okay to me - all your fic links and content seem to be there. I'm going to go look at Moonridge.

Looks fine to me. The age thing shows up because your journal is listed as "This journal may contain adult concepts" (that's in your journal's settings) if you're not logged in correctly. Usually logging out and back in will clear it up, though I'd also do a cache clear out while I was at it.

I got into it OK, going in from here. And I just tried going in from my bookmark for the basement, using IE (normally I use Firefox) and got in no bother.
