What happens if the maximum number of userpics for my account changes?
If the maximum number of userpics for your account changes
and you have more userpics currently stored than the new maximum number, some of your userpics will be marked inactive. There are three reasons why this can happen:
Based on your new account type
, LiveJournal selects your active userpics by choosing your default userpic, if any, and the userpics you used most in your journal entries over the last two months; this process is not affected by your userpic choices in comments or community entries. When you're logged in, all of your userpics (active or inactive) are shown on your User Pictures
page and Edit Userpics
page. Other users only see active userpics on your User Pictures
Your inactive userpics still show in all old entries or comments, but cannot be used for new entries or comments. Before you can Upload new userpics
, you will need to delete enough old userpics
to be below the maximum number of userpics
for your current
- Months 0-5: If your account remains unpaid for fewer than six months, your inactive userpics will remain on the server and will be marked active when you pay for your account.
- Months 6+: If your account remains unpaid for at least six months, your inactive userpics will be removed from the server. You will need to re-upload them if you choose to pay for your account after that point.
Add-on Userpic Space
If your Paid Account or add-on userpic space
expires, LiveJournal will deactivate enough of your least-used userpics to bring you to your account's standard limit
If you Paid Account expires and you have remaining larger Paid Account add-on userpic time, LiveJournal saves the number of days remaining before your larger Paid Account add-on expires so it will be available with more Paid time. If your add-on userpic space itself expires, you will need to buy more.
