Quick help please!

Ok, LJ is confusing me again.

My 1 package of 70 extra user pics is expiring tomorrow, so I just wanted to renew it and buy a new package. Then, I thought, what the heck, buy 2 packages and get +140. So, I view the cart and there, it says, "If the account you are buying the add-on package already has at least one add-on package, the account owner can use the Userpic Package Resizing Tool to change how the add-on time is distributed without having to get more add-on packages or time."

I just tried the link and now I have 255 user pics - until tomorrow of course, when the package expires. So, I could've used this the whole year and I didn't know?! O_O

Anyway, so, my question now would be, do I buy a new package for +70 and save 20$, when I can just use the link above again and have the 255 in total anyway, or what?? I'm confuzzled. o.O


Edit: Alright, I just bought 1 package for 10$. I've got space for 255 icons and it expires in August. Huh? o.O Can it be any more irritating? Next time, I'll just buy the largest package that lasts for a year and that's it!

Wow now I am completely confused.. I just went in and bought the largest package they had to add to my account, I didn't think about it.

I hope it all works out for you.

And how does it work if you want to renew it? Do you just buy a new one of the largest packages?

But yeah, totally weird. I mean, I bought the small package, but actually could've upgraded it any time to the largest package for free, with that link. But that's totally weird and doesn't make much sense for LJ to just give this icon space away for free. o.O

when I renew my package I just pick the same on and pay for it. they never offer to upgrade my package for free..

Just purchase what you want and pray for the best.. lol You'll have it for a whole year and next year you can change it if you want too.

I was also thinking of just getting the same again and then maybe trying this link again. :P Oh we'll see. But I definitely have to buy *something* as I don't want to loose the icon space. I NEED my icons! :P

Wait, so this works and they won't end up charging me for it? I'm afraid to click. LOL. Oh wait, now I see! It will reduce your time then.

+70 userpics, expires on 2011-11-20 17:23:20 (this is what you currently have)
+140 userpics, expires on 2011-08-08 09:29:24
+210 userpics, expires on 2011-07-04 14:51:25

Though it's only 1 month between 140 and 210. Weird.

Aaah! Now it makes sense!! I didn't see a change in the dates as today was my last day anyway. I only saw a change in the time, but that didn't bother me. But oooh, okaay! haha Now that clears it up! Thanks!

As I told someone else before, something's wrong today. I'm confused about everything! So weird!

Yeah, it was most likely just a matter of hours or minutes for you. Thankfully I realized it before I clicked. I am already too lazy to change my icon in 90% of my comments, I don't need 240 more user pics.

Haha, your icon! I had to think about it for a minute. LOL.

I like to have at least one icon for my current fandoms, which could be many. :P

hehe It's so funny!
