Important stuff to know
Header design contest
|Thanks to all of you for participating in the first round of polls. This week, we'd like to present the finalists for your
voting pleasure. We regret that a couple of entries got lost along the way. We hope you'll resubmit them for inclusion in our next header
contest. We'll begin accepting entries next week. We hope you'll help us decide which header will grace the top of LiveJournal by casting
your ballots here. Polls close on Monday, July 19th, at 3PM,
Gulf_Aid_Now charitable vgift
We're delighted to announce that gulf_aid_now has already raised over $3,000 to support clean-up and wildlife protection in the wake of the oil disaster. They've created a charitable vgift, which will help fund environmental recovery efforts. Priced at $0.99, we'll donate all proceeds to the National Wildlife Foundation's Oil Spill Fund (we'll cover the processing fees). We want to thank you, again, for coming together to make a positive social impact.
The adventures of Frank & Meme
|Frank and Meme are taking a short vacation up north to reconnect. When they return, they'll be setting up a cozy new abode. Based on your
feedback, we'll post brief prompts in the newsletter each week and ask you to submit original fanfic to frankandmeme.
We'll be using +1 ratings to choose which entry will continue the narrative (we're thinking, up to 300 words with or without an image).
A very short excerpt and link to the winning submission will be published in news under a cut. All participants will receive 500 LJ tokens, while the
winning author will be awarded 1,000 LJ tokens. Frank and Meme will still give out vgifts to those who comment on the winning post (at their new address). We look forward to hearing further suggestions at frankandmeme.|
