Last week, we ramped up our spam-fighting efforts with several new tactics. As a result, we suspended more than a quarter of a million spam journals! Unfortunately, a number of legitimate accounts were inadvertently suspended in the process -- around 1% or so of those suspended. While this represents a very small percentage, we'd like to reduce that number to as close to zero as possible. We've therefore adjusted our search criteria, so the next round of suspensions should catch far fewer legitimate journals.
We're still working on the issue that's causing some notifications to get caught in spam filters. We've made considerable progress, but AOL still has a significant number of backed-up notifications. They're stored and will be delivered as soon as we can resolve the underlying issue. We thank you for your continued support as we combat spam and restore notifications on LiveJournal.
Frank's weekly giveaway
|Wow! Last week, we put up a vgift and two userheads to support relief efforts in Japan. We are thrilled to announce that we've already raised over $9,200, which will be donated to Doctors without Borders. Just a reminder that LiveJournal donates 100% of all money raised from the sale of charitable vgifts to designated charities (we cover all processing fees). We thank you for helping us make a positive difference!|
Header design contest
It's that time of the month again! After painstaking review, we narrowed the headers down to 15 finalists. We invite you to vote for the design you'd like to see on the top of LiveJournal during the month of April. We'll begin accepting entries for the next header design contest next week. All submissions that come in after the deadline will be automatically entered into the next contest. We thank you, again, for making LiveJournal your canvas!
