[Level - Public]

THANK YOU ALL so much for the support you've shown me tonight.

I've had so many 'Are you ok? I'm here if I can help, if you want to talk' messages that I am, quite frankly, overwhelmed. To those of you it upset, I'm sorry - that wasn't the intention. It was in way of explination, not at rant at any specific person. Rule of thumb - if it confuses you, it isn't aimed at you; if it worries you, nudge me.

I'm having a bit of a reshuffle which happens from time to time and is now overdue, so posts might disappear and reappear for a few days whilst I mess around with access levels. But in the meantime, lifted directly from my post on 11th June 04:

(always available from my info page, as is my email address, snail mail and telephone number for those of you with the right access level)

I shall be posting the level from now on at the top of my posts:

Because I have rather a lot of various levels which I occasionally use.
And because previous entries have been pushed and explored far more than I wanted them to be when I least expected it. It was stupid of me to allow it to happen, but I thought I could trust those who could see it. And also because not all the various friend settings show the level of a post, and a little lock is easy to miss.

I don't want to stop posting, but have kept pretty much anything important to me private since. Which isn't ideal. Nor do I want to unfriend anyone - what happens now and in the future doesn't change what has happened in the past.

So to make it clear and obivious, to use my lj "properly"*:

Public: is the only one for everyone's consumption.

Friends: denotes that there are at least smatterings of semi private bits (!).

B: a step on from friends, but generally due to precise locations or full names etc

B2: very little difference to B

C1: trusted with some details

C2: trusted with a few bits more

C3: one of a very very small group that I trust with everything I wish to be known

D's: custom group, just for you

But whatever you can see, remember - I put up the details I want to, and don't expect anyone to take liberties and ask for / search for more. Things will remain cryptic for a very good reason - if you want more detail to clarify something that's confused you, get in touch. A post may not be at all relevant to you, it's just that you belong to that level setting.

At the end of the day, this is MY journal and I won't have it abused. You are my friends, the people I know and hope I can trust. Please respect my wishes.

*as others do to a huge degree of success, point taken.

Incidentally - if comment features are removed, it's because I don't want to take it any further. I don't often do this but if I do, contact me irl. I use lj often to get through to people in a convenient way. It isn't the most ideal form of communication and it has it's drawbacks but it means people can read and take things in in their own time and own way, without being swamped by emails and can look back as often as they wish.

it's a damn good system, but then you always get people moaning at you if they're not able to read *all* your posts

Simple - they moan, they're not worthy of being on there at all. :D

At the end of the day, I'll share what I want with who. If I'm shown I can trust someone, they get to see more. If they show me I can't trust them, they get to see less.

If they cut from MY lj and paste to their own (and it wasn't a PUBLIC post they copied from) I'll get rather annoyed!
