If you want to deck your halls with boughs of holly, or just hand out lumps of coal, we've got what you need to keep your LJ merry and bright.
Give More is Back!
You've waited patiently all year... And finally, the "Give More" promotion is back! Starting Saturday, December 1st, when you buy someone a gift of paid account time, you'll automatically give them the userpic add-on for free! That means when you give the gift of a 12 month paid account, the recipient automatically gets upgraded to 100 userpics for those 12 months.
The Give More offer is available until December 31, 2007, at 11:59 p.m. PT and only applies to gifts purchased for other users, not paid time you purchase for your own account.
Finish all your holiday shopping this weekend! Head to the Gift Shop and Give More!

New Holiday V-Gifts
All we want for Christmas is a Rudolph Frank (shocking, we know), but we've got lots of new holiday-themed V-Gifts for everyone on your list. At less than $1 each, it doesn't really matter who was naughty and who was nice, does it?
While we're on the subject of V-Gifts, we think you'll be happy to hear that we've redesigned the V-Gift Shop! Now it is easier than ever to send a a Virtual Gift directly to your friends' profiles. Clearly designated themes and an easy-to-shop format are sure to put you in the giving spirit.
New Settings & Flagging Tools
We don't want to take away from the festive atmosphere, but we do want to make you aware of a new addition to LJ. At LiveJournal, we recognize that there is some content that may be fine for adults, but not for kids. We don't want kids seeing content that's not meant for them, and we know you don't either. LiveJournal wants to prevent minors from seeing adult content in a way that does not interfere with the experience of users who are 18 and over. The ability to set entries, journals and communities as either "Adult Concepts" or "Explicit Adult Content" is a functionality community maintainers and users have been requesting for a long time. As a result, we're giving you a set of tools that gives you control over whether the things you create and share on LJ are accessible by people under the age of 18.
You can read all about this new functionality, as well as comment with any and all questions you may have, in lj_biz.
Where's Frank? Contest Winners!
Pretty ponies, underwater antics and a trip to The Mission... Frank was lucky enough to go on some amazing adventures recently. The final votes are in though, and we'd like to congratulate our Grand Prize Winner, ytak, as well as our two Runner-Up Winners, the_artiste and robdamnit. Thank you to everyone who entered! Frank is back at the office safe and sound, but we have to admit... He seems a lot more interested in colorful ponies and a lot less interested in chewing on the lawn ever since the contest. We can sort of see why...
The winning entry from ytak.
