Recently users have been experiencing difficulties with access to some pages on LiveJournal: pages are loading slowly, comments can’t be added, etc. This is happening because of an uneven distribution of the load on our servers: data is stored on multiple servers, and some of that data is accessed more frequently than other data, causing some servers to be overloaded while others can handle more requests for data than they're currently getting. We are starting maintenance now in order to more evenly distribute the data and load amongst the servers to improve site performance.
Maintenance could take anywhere from 1-4 hours, and during this time some journals will be available for reading only; some accounts will not be able to login or post new content during this process. After the account is moved to another server the full access will be restored automatically.
If you have any questions or problems with access to your journal on December 29, please contact our Support Team.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.
