It is with much gratitude that we wish to announce that we'll be retiring the LiveJournal Advisory Board at the expiration of the current members' positions, in June, 2010. We are indebted to our current and past advisory members for donating their time, expertise, and passion to help steer the direction of LiveJournal. We could never have gotten where we are without them. We have outgrown the ability to rely upon a part-time board of volunteer advisors to make efficient business-critical decisions. We will continue to welcome input from all of our users and are committed to being as transparent and responsive as possible to our users' evolving needs and wishes.
