What extra services can communities benefit from?

You can purchase paid time for communities. A paid community receives access to some but not all of the extra paid services that personal journals receive because there are some features that are inapplicable or don't work for a community. What are paid accounts? lists the extra paid services available on Dreamwidth.

Here are the extra services that have limitations when applied to a paid community:

Icon slots: The admins of paid communities can upload icons up to the number of icon slots the community is allowed, but members can't use those icons when posting or commenting. (We do plan to add that feature in the future.) The only thing a community can use icons for is to display them.

Inbox tracking subscriptions: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities because communities don't have inboxes.

Number of journals you can subscribe/grant access to: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities because there's no limit on the number of members a community can have.

Number of sites you can crosspost an entry to: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities because communities can't crosspost.

Ability to use site directory search: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities because you can't log in as a community to use the directory search.

Ability to receive copies of comments you make in other journals in your email: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities because you can't post to another journal as a community. (However admins can track all comments made in the community.)

Ability to receive text messages through Dreamwidth: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities.

Ability to receive notifications of updates to individual comment threads: This feature doesn't apply to paid communities.

All other extra services listed in What are paid accounts? work for paid communities the same way they do for paid personal accounts.

Admins of a community can perform features that involve customizing the community's look, and all people viewing the community can use features that affect certain things in the community, like the ability to use the comment thread expander.

A feature that paid communities receive but paid personal accounts don't is:

Members can track all comments: Members of a paid community can track all comments that are made in the community.
