Up until now I've automatically re-friended everyone who has friended me, so that you all have access to the very few f-locked fiction posts I've made.
However, what you may not know is that sometimes LJ has weird default settings, and they only become apparent if you hit arbritary limits. I've recently hit 500 friends (including comms), and LJ has started defaulting to User Profile options I really dislike.
Anyway, I've decided that it's time to re-think this. It's not like I use f-lock much: there are, perhaps, 5 to 8 things f-locked and they are nearly all early-draft fiction, mainly because I don't want to put any more endless works in progress out into the world.
So. Here's the deal. I'm going to prune my f-list. I'm going to try and take out dead journals first, and see how much that helps. I'll look at nudge and use my own judgement (like, whether we've ever had a conversation, say) to do this. However, if you actually use the f-locked files on my LJ, and/or want to stay in the f-list loop, please leave a comment here and you'll be on the "keep" list. Okay? Okay.
That's a plan, then.
ETA: Just to make it clear, no one needs to defriend cupidsbow, whether I have you on my f-list or not. This is purely an admin thing, so I can use my User Info page without going insane, and I'll being trying to limit the journals I defriend to those that are clearly inactive.
