It's been a pretty eventful week. We're still experiencing issues with notification delivery. Please know that we're working very hard to resolve this matter involving a third party. We'll keep you posted right here.
Frank's weekly giveaway
Help New Zealand
|We're always thrilled to hear about LiveJournal communities that come together to support charitable efforts. In response to the earthquake in New Zealand, help_nz is running an auction to fund charities that provide emergency relief in Christchurch, New Zealand. They've kindly extended their auction deadline to Friday, March 11th. You can contribute by bidding on original fandom created by LiveJournal users, including fanfic, artwork, music, and more (including three annual Paid Accounts). We commend help_nz for making a difference to those in need.|
Journal theme contest
|It's time to rev up those creative juices for a LiveJournal theme contest! We invite you to post your original designs (thumbnails, with full-sized images under the cut) up through Monday, April 18th, 2011 at 4PM, PDT in remixed. We'll select up to five winners, based on +1 ratings and staff input. Each winner will receive 2,500 LJ Tokens! All other participants will receive 500 LJ Tokens (a maximum of one award per user). Winning themes will be made available to all users without charge. Here are the official rules (you'll also find them posted on the Remixed Profile page).
Did you know ...?
|Have a lot of friends? Notes can help you maintain social poise even in the face of temporary amnesia. In honor of our Free Paid Account trial, we'd like to remind you about this great Paid-only feature. Notes lets you create and view private notes (think electronic post-its) about other users. You can add or edit/view your Notes (visible only to you) via the userhead hover menu or on the right-column of a user's profile page. You can also review and update your Notes (view, edit, delete, add) on the Manage Notes page. For more information, check out this FAQ.|
Photo of the week
Click here to help choose the next photo of the week. FYI: We pick entries for the poll based on a combination of comments, +1 ratings, and staff input. The winner receives 500 LJ tokens. We thank you for sharing your talent with the global LiveJournal community.
Welcome back, dear scribes
|Congratulations to amai_koibito, majorjune, and noblewars who won our LJ_Scribe contest! After aching deliberation, we've selected 15 finalists in response to our fourth prompt for your review. In addition to the joy of sharing your well-turned phrases, the three authors with the most votes will each win 1,000 LJ Tokens. Finalists will receive 500 LJ Tokens (a limit of one award per user). For our next contest, please respond to the following prompt in the form of poetry or prose (a maximum of 100 words): "A hundred days had come and gone. At last her path was clear..." Be sure to post your submissions as entries, rather than comments, to lj_scribe up through Monday, March 14th, at 4PM, PDT. You'll find the +1 rating link under each post, so remember to check back and vote for your favorites!|
