You shouldn't mess with me
I'll ruin everything you are
I'll give you television
I'll give you eyes of blue
I'll give you men who want to rule the world

Two neat things I've learned you can do with the LiveJournal admin console in the past year:

You can make a journal or community friends-only by default so you don't have to remember to lock the posts:

for communities, it's:
set for COMMUNITY_NAME newpost_minsecurity friends

for personal journals, it's:
set newpost_minsecurity friends

You can disable lj-cut tags for either the "Recent Entries" link for all journals you read or for your entire "Friends List" link.  I opted for the latter since I hate cuts.

set opt_ljcut_disable_lastn 1
set opt_ljcut_disable_friends 1

I wanna know about the book you're reading, I wanna know about the blood you're bleeding

I got Erwin off the truck on Thursday afternoon in Springfield, OH.  I caught a quick photo of him when we were going to lunch the other day.

They didn't have any new trainees for me, so for the meantime I'm solo.

Familiarity breeds attempt.

I got to visit briefly with Welf on Thursday morning.  She roused herself from bed at 6am to meet me for breakfast at a nearby truckstop, the scene of the crime, in fact.  That's love, folks.

Give me a reason not to bite

If I use
set for aussieintn newpost_minsecurity friends
it says I am "not an admin of this community". Perhaps it doesn't work for user journals, only for communities.

i think for individual journals, you can just drop the "for journalname" part and it applies the change to the journal you're logged-in as.

UPDATE: I tested it out with a "test" journal of mine. That is correct.. drop the "for JOURNAL_NAME" part of the syntax to make your journal friends-only. So it would be:

set newpost_minsecurity friends

Origianl entry has been edited to reflect it. Sorry. :)

Ah, yes. That makes sense. Thanks.

As a side note, I prefer that icon over any other.

I think that's my favorite one, too.

And luckily, our opinions are the only ones that matter.

I get mixed response on that icon, o teacher of console wisdom. Some people like it, some people don't.

Re: reason not to bite

i love macaroni and cheese! do you think you ate so much that you would bleed it if i bit really hard?

Is that a new icon?

Considering I consider "early" to be 11:00 am, yes, that is love. You betta appreciate it!

Though I prefer to see you at times when I am more awake. I'm surprised I even made it there...I'm convinced I slept-drove.

I understand you can also use console to force people off your Friends Of list. That's the one I'm interested in.


It forces them off and permanently bands them from adding you again.
To change it back...


eeep... i forgot i can't use pointy brackets...

ban_set USERNAME
ban_unset USERNAME

I hope you don't mind but I added you to my friend's list. I saw your application on rate_photo_art and love your pictures so I took a look at your journal. I love good traveling stories and it seems like you have plenty. Anyways, I can remove you if you want me too.

pshaw. i love new friends. added ya back.
