New LJ features
Who else remembers when the ability to close lj-cuts was first introduced? Before that, the lj-cut behaviour was just that everything after the cut tag would be hidden, and people were used to using it like that. So, for instance, if they were discussing several things in an entry, and one was a spoiler, the spoily material would always come at the end. When the ability to close lj-cut was introduced, people carried on doing the same thing, but would then close the cut and write "wow! uncut text!" at the end of their entry.

It took a while before people started doing this, and using the feature properly, and during the intermediate timeframe, everyone was driven insane watching as one person after another tested out the new feature.

So with the introduction of comment editing and private messaging on LJ, I'm now wondering: how long is it going to be before we start seeing comments edited to say something other than "look! an edited comment!" and private messages that say something other than "look, a private message!"?

More practically, someone on an LJ community might ask for information about a particular professor, or a therapist, or something, and you might want to reply with details without posting them publicly.

Okay, I'll no longer be boggling about the PM feature. :D

Oh good. That means I no longer have to add the one about where it'd make it so much easier to contact the mod's of a community - on condition they have the PMing feature enabled, of course. :)

See, now that's just silly, because sod's law dictates that they're going to disappear off the face of the net and the PMing feature will send messages to a dead yahoo account. ;)
