We've continued to make strides in our spam-fighting efforts and have already restored a good many notifications. We'll keep you posted on our progress right here. In response to your questions about purging inactive accounts, we're still in an early phase of this project. We plan to resume discussions on this topic once we resolve the spam issue. We'll keep you apprised of future developments in news.
Frank's weekly giveaway
|We're pleased to introduce our new Interest pages, which are designed to help you find relevant entries and communities based on your particular interests. Each Interest page contains a dynamic feed of recent public posts from communities, featured entries and communities, a search tool, and a poll. We've seeded the categories with public communities, but we're hoping you'll pitch in and submit your communities for inclusion. You'll find a tool on the lower right of each page where you can request to "add or delete your community." (Please note that you must be a maintainer of a community to request addition or deletion.) There are currently twelve Interest pages:

Welcome back, dear scribes!
|Congratulations to darklotus1211, terachan, and acolorshugh, who won our LJ_Scribe contest! After aching deliberation, we've selected seven finalists in response to our seventh prompt for your review. In addition to the joy of sharing your well-turned phrases, the 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, we'll ask you to respond to the following prompt in the form of a greeting card poem, Craigslist missed connection, or a sonnet (up to 100 words, excluding the prompt): "They were standing on line waiting for Chai Lattes when their eyes met." You do not need to include the prompt in your writing. Be sure to post your submissions as entries, rather than comments, to lj_scribe up through Monday, April 4th, at 4PM, PDT. You'll find the +1 rating link under each post, so remember to check back and vote for your favorites!|
