Header design contest, Vgift design poll

We've got more creative contests this week. While we tally up the votes, Frank and Meme have embarked on a secret mission to Vegas. Of course, all work and no play makes Frank nibble wires, so Meme has been hitting the slot machines (she's up 100 bucks), while Frank has been growling "hit me" at the blackjack table (*will not divulge stats*). They'd love to hear about your gaming wins and woes. Whether you're into Texas hold 'em, rochambeau, or spin the bottle, describe your best or worst bet, and Frank'll roll you a pair of dice. +1.


Important stuff to know

  • Header design poll: It's time to decide which header you'd like to see on the top of LiveJournal for the month of September. The header finalist poll closes on Monday, August 23rd, at 3PM, PDT. We'll announce the winner in the next newsletter (and send LJ Tokens to all participants).
  • Orbit vgift contest: We were completely blown away by your brilliant submissions. After lengthy deliberation by the LiveJournal staff (which nearly ended in fisticuffs), we are pleased to present the finalists. Remember, all LiveJournal users will be able to send the winning vgift to three mutual friends. Please click here to pick your favorite! This poll will stay open until Wednesday, August 25th, at 3PM, PDT.

For our featured photo and more fun with Frank & Meme (as told by LJ writers), we'll catch you under the cut!

Photos of the week


Congrats to garbouz, who won our 33rd lj_photophile poll! Click here to vote for the next photo of the week. We also invite you to vote for our themed contest on the subject: Man in the mirror. FYI: We pick entries for the polls based on a combination of comments, +1 ratings, and staff input. Winners of both polls receive 500 LJ tokens. We thank you for sharing your talent with the global LiveJournal community.

Frank & Meme's Excellent Adventure


We're proud to present an excerpt from the winning entry in the Frank and Meme saga, authored by perkk. You can start posting submissions for the next official chapter to frankandmeme. We'll publish a poll next week so you can decide the fate of our fearsome duo! The winning writer scores 1,000 LJ tokens. All other participants receive 500 LJ Tokens. We thank you, again, for keeping the drama alive!

Auntie Meme?: On a dark desert highway, cool wind in their fur, our love-struck couple are riding in the back of a convertible speeding along Interstate 15. Frank half-sleeps, dreaming & ruminating about the sublime flavors that must be Liberace's Gold Lamé Pants in Las Vegas; the prize they have been promised for helping out with this dangerous mission. Read more here.

Thanks again for joining us. We'll see you next week!
