If the 200+ LJ notifications I found in my inbox this morning are anything to go by, I'd say those good folks down in the LJ engine room have found a way to relieve the 'Comment Constipation' problem we've been experiencing.

I imagine working at that kind of a job is a bit like being a weather forecaster: When you get it right nobody remembers, but when you get it wrong they never let you forget.

Well done to them all, I say, and thanks for all those times you keep things running so smoothly that we don't even notice you're there.

Here's to you, Oompa-Loompas of LJ. You're all stars in my book.

I should think it'll take a few days to work out the backlog :)

Sorry for that dreadful image ;)

With any luck, we'll be back to normal by the weekend :)

An excellent point! My day job is in system support, and I can tell you no one ever calls up to say thanks for x number of days without a problem.

Ditto here, and yes, it's a minor miracle if I get an IM or phone call saying that I'm doing a good job. (If that does happen, I'm immediately suspicious that somebody wants to butter me up so they can get freebie help....)

I think LJ is one of the smoothest operating sites out here. I don't complain about them. If you're on Facebook, you know frustration.

200+ notifications! Sometimes I look at your comment box and see seventy-some listed, and I don't know how you get through them all. This is going to be a full-time job for you soon! Maybe we should starting paying? :)

Amazing what that giant jar of prune juice can do...

Yeah, I can concur with the assessment.

So that's how they're fixing it :)

I think we've still got a ways to go - so far the only comment notification I've recieved for this entry was for Karen's, but I'm sure they'll get there soon

I don't get enough comments on my blog to have noticed the constipation problem ;)

200+?

I only had 54 this morning, so I'm counting myself lucky ;o)

It was kinda nice. I felt quite popular :)

I think some LJ comments haven't made it back to me yet. Maybe I should be grateful.

w00t! And you're absolutely right, the vast majority of the time it works A-OK & they are to be commended for that.

Well said!

What does it say about me that I didn't even know it was a problem until messages started popping up with two-day old dates?

It says that you don't sweat the small stuff :)
