Free Paid Account trial, Header design winner

When we last left Frank and Meme, they had just embarked on a midnight expedition in search of alien life. They saw eerie flickering lights ahead and tiptoed forward. Then a luminescent sphere spiraled down toward them, whirring an atonal melody. It was at this point that Meme proposed: "Let's hoof it the hell out of here." Frank, however, prefers to stay put. They're now asking for your advice. Should they run or stand their ground? Tell them what you'd do (a coordinating userpic is always welcome), and Frank'll send you a bouncing baby alien to hug and adore (up through the first 10 pages of comments).

Free Paid Account Trial!

We're pleased to announce an easy way to get acquainted with the benefits of a LiveJournal Paid Account! All free users are invited to participate in a free, two-week Paid Account trial. Simply click here to enroll, and you can:
  • Enjoy an ad-free environment
  • Dress up your posts with 30 userpics
  • Choose from hundreds of premium journal styles
  • Get LiveJournal Stats and Google Analytics!
  • Edit comments, create personal notes, post polls, get more storage, try voiceposting, and more!

If you decide to upgrade your account to a full Paid Account during or after the trial, you'll keep all of your new settings. If you don't upgrade, your account will revert to its previous settings, although some settings will be retained in case you decide to upgrade in the future (such as uploaded userpics and any Notes you've created). Just a final note: You cannot purchase add-ons (either userpics or storage space) during the course of the free trial. We look forward to hearing what you think!

Header design contest

Congratulations to erzsebet who won this month's header design contest. You'll be seeing this lovely design on the top of LiveJournal during the month of March. For our next contest, we're requesting entries on the general theme of health and healing in honor of our new game, Sim Hospital. We'll accept entries up through Monday, March 21st at 4PM, PDT. If you submitted a header after the last deadline, it will be automatically entered into the next contest. Just a reminder: The winner gets 2,500 LJ Tokens. Finalists receive 1,000 LJ Tokens. All other participants get 500 LJ Tokens (a limit of one award per user). We thank you, again, for making LiveJournal your canvas!

Listen up!

If you have a paid or permanent account (or if you've signed up for our free Paid Account trial), you can send five free headphones now until Monday, March 7th, at 4pm, PDT! You'll see both the free and the $0.99 gifts displayed until you've sent them to your friends. If you're not receiving vgifts (from friends and/or Frank), you may have disabled them. To enable vgifts, visit Edit profile (under Profile), scroll down to the bottom of the page, and check your settings. Happy listening!

Did you know ...?

We believe you should be in control of what you view on LiveJournal. That's why we're talking about adult flagging this week. Don't want to see nudity? Fine. Want to read erotica? That's a-okay too. What we really care about is making sure that there are no unwelcome surprises when you visit a journal or community. One of the ways you can help is to flag adult posts, whether they're individual entries, entire journals, or communities. Here's how:
  • You can set your personal viewing preferences (no adult content, adult concepts, or adult concepts and explicit adult content) by scrolling down to the Viewing Adult Content tab on the Account Settings page. The default is set to no adult content or explicit concepts.
  • If your journal regularly contains adult themes and images, we ask you to visit your Account Settings page, scroll down toward the bottom of the page beside Adult Content and choose either Adult concepts (for light erotica/partial nudity); or Explicit adult content (for content suitable for users 18 years or older).
  • To add adult flags to the communities you maintain, visit the Manage Communities page, click the Settings tab beside the community you want to update, and choose the appropriate content rating on the lower left-hand corner.
  • Regardless of the settings in your journal or community, you can flag an individual entry by checking the appropriate adult content tag on the lower-right corner of the entry page below the text box.
For more information, check out this FAQ.

For more fun with photos, Frank and Meme, and LJ_Scribe, we'll catch you under the cut!
