What are the extra services available?

Paid accounts receive extra services in exchange for supporting Dreamwidth. For information on paid account prices, see How much are paid accounts?

In general, the paid account services are those that cost us money to offer, or that result in heavy database load or high volumes of notification emails being sent out. Every account, whether paid or free, can use the basic functions of the site, such as posting entries, joining communities, and commenting in other journals.

There are two types of extra services: features that are only available to paid accounts and are sharply limited or unavailable to free accounts, and features that are available to all accounts but give higher limits or capacity to paid accounts.
