LJ Posting Limits

weather: mostly clear
outside: 5°C
mood: non-chalant
There are new posting limits, in case you're wondering why your 4th post got munged all of a sudden. bradBrad's done this before, changed things without giving any warning =P Don't get me wrong, I still think Brad's cool. He's just... well, human. A boy human, in fact. =)

    Free users: 3 posts
    Early adopters: 10 posts
    Paid Users: 20 posts

Y'know, it isn't such a bad idea. If you have more to say than your limit, you can always add things to the same post by editing... up to the size limit of one single entry (whatever that might be). I said in a comment that I could be limited to 1 post a day and I'd be okay... a little grumbly, but I'd be okay. This is assuming the limit is actual number of posts, not number of database accesses for journal entries.

[Update - 1750h]

It's been postponed until the community posting elements have been implemented and I presume until a few other things have been ironed out. So, you should be able to post past your limit for the time being...

I say again. If you can't afford $2.08/month, then you have Way Bigger Problems™ than not being able to post more than 3 LiveJournal entries a day. Like EATING, for example.

size limit of a post
If I understood Brad's posting correctly, there's (currently) no size limit to a post. (Though I believe comments are limited to 4000 characters or something like that -- was that 4000 bytes?)

Re: size limit of a post
There has to be a limit =) The EVENT field in MySQL has to have a limit. I just don't know if it's a BLOB, TEXT, MEDIUMBLOB, MEDIUMTEXT, LONGBLOB or LONGTEXT and I'm too lazy to find it =P

It's huge enough to be considered infinite for one post, but if you put a bunch of long posts together, you might run into the cap.

I know I hit the character cap for comments sometimes...

Re: size limit of a post
With TEXT or BLOB maybe (64K-1 chars), but even MEDIUM(TEXT|BLOB) should get you pretty far without funning into a limit (over 16m chars).

chef cluster downtime
Don't know whether you read about the chef cluster downtime on lj_maintenance. You're on chef, aren't you?

I thought this comment was nifty :)
