Account levels, costs, capabilities, and limits (as currently planned) for Dreamwidth Studios.

To create an account with posting capabilities, you need to either have an invite or get a paid account for a period of time. The minimum cost is $3 for one month of paid time, after which your account would revert back to a free account. If you don't want to be able to post, you may log in with OpenID.
