New userpic URL format [Dec. 16th, 2002|04:34 pm]
LiveJournal Development

Before, the URL format was:

http://www.livejournal.com/userpic/333660
(/userpic/picid)

Now, it's:

http://www.livejournal.com/userpic/333660/2
(/userpic/picid/userid)

The old URLs will continue to work for awhile, but will eventually be turned off. If you have any hard-coded anywhere (in a post or style, perhaps?) you'll have to change them.

Active Robot Blocking [Dec. 16th, 2002|07:12 pm]

Since all of LJ is served dynamically, it's possible to do active robot blocking, rather than just using <meta> tags to politely tell them to go away.

Here's a list of all known spider IP addresses in use:

http://www.searchengineworld.com/spiders/spider_ips.htm

I propose we take this data, put it into a robots.dat file with the LJ source, and provide a new option in ljconfig.pl:

$LJ::ACTIVE_ROBOT_BLOCK = 1;

Anybody want to work on this? Should be pretty easy, and the paranoid users out there will love you.
