If anyone else on our friends list is buying a permanent paid LJ account, please feel free to donate us your remaining non-permanent paid status as Iago did. In this way, we hope to achieve our own semi-permanent paid status.
Let's see how much time we can accumulate!
EDIT: I'm told you donate your leftover time /after/ converting to paid status, not before. So if you've converted and havn't donated your leftover time yet... ;-)
