On LJ (and DW?), where exactly do I go to change it so that any logged-in user can send me a private message and not just friends?

For years, somehow I've had it where only friends can send me private messages and sometimes (dating back to as early as 2009 or 2010, I think) non-friends (that I wanted to allow private messages from) tell me that they wanted to send me private messages but my settings were too high - whenever that happens, I've always wanted to change it so any logged-in user can send me a private message, but I've never been able to find that option in the settings.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Now I'm annoyed, too. x( I just went through EVERYTHING and I can't find it. I use to know! I do know that LJ has changed a lot of things, like being able to switch back & forth between the old and new journal styles--if you do that now, you don't have the option of switching back without going to them. Pain in the ass! I will keep looking, but I just went through everything. Maybe you have a smarter friend that will help you. ;)

At least it's not just me who can't find it, I guess.

Oh well. Thanks for trying :)

And you found your friend--I sent her a PM... she said you found her! Good. :)

Yay! :)

Did you send a PM to her old or new username? If the former, I didn't know it was possible to send a PM to a deleted account... I think I even tried that once when another LJ friend who I thought would never leave LJ suddenly did, but it didn't work.

The new. :)

You can't to a deleted account.

Before you ask, no, I don't know anything about that! :)

Oh well. Thanks :)

No problem!

You go to settings and then security :)

I tried looking there and it didn't work. For one, that tab is called Privacy now.

I guess it was only possible in the old version of LJ, and since I didn't find it before I switched to the new version, I'm stuck with the setting I have. Oh well.

Sorry, I don't know. Good luck!

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
