Preserving Thamiris' LJ and memory
One thing I wanted to give everyone a heads-up about:
Thamiris' journal seems to have an annoying habit of "unfriending" people now and then. It's happened to me (even while she was alive, and since, too) and to a number of others. As far as I/we can tell, this apparent action doesn't really have results--you can still read locked entries and are still listed on her userinfo page. The only way you can tell is by looking at Joule.
If anyone from her family has access to her LJ, of course we have no control over this. But it's so random and odd that it does indeed, just seem like an LJ glitch. Anyway, if this has happened to enough people for it to be a concern, leave a comment below and I will be happy to query the LJ folks about it to see if they have an explanation.
It happened to me back in the end of April, but I can still see the locked posts I could see before I got dropped from her friends list.
Maybe a week after her passing was announced. And same deal - I can still see all her locked posts.
I was apparently "defriended".
If you try to add to friends list it says, "error, this journal has been deleted, purged or suspended".
It happened about a week after her death to me, but I can still read locked posts, I still stand as her friend on her f-list, I just don't stand as her friend on my "friend of" list.
Yes, I was de-freinded just after she died - I assumed someone from her family may have been tampering with it - though I can't see how.
Does anyone on here know her RL family, or whether they are likely to try and delete it if they can?
My understanding was that the apparent 'defriending' had something to do with her journal being put into memorial status. As far as I know Tham's family had no knowledge of any of her fannish pursuits.

Oh. Er, really? That's a very unfortunate [and, I think, nonsensical] consequence. I'm glad everyone who has been dropped from her Friends list -- including myself, actually -- seems still to be able to see her Friends-locked entries.
I don't think anyone was actually defriended. I can certainly still see all the same f-locked and filtered posts I had access to before I was apparently defriended. LJ clearly just does something weird when it puts the journal into that memorial 'bubble'.
Interesting. I was wondering what was going on there, being one of the ones randomly defriended at some point - though, yeah, it seems I can actually still get in and see everything, locked or not, so I guess it doesn't really matter.
BTW, when I sent my donation via paypal this morning, I forgot to note my LJ name, which I usually do because my paypal account is under my real earthlink addy - in case anyone was confused. ;)
i just checked back, it seems according to joule, i am also defriended?! at a date, where she already passed away... but i can see her flocked entries...
LJ is being confusing again...sighs..
I was defriended months ago.
