LiveJournal Major Notes: Scrapbook, Menu, Classifieds, Bunny treats

Thanks for providing such smart, detailed feedback on our new menu. We've already made several tweaks in response to your suggestions: We changed My Stuff to Profile; Userpics to Manage Userpics; Upload Photos to Upload to Scrapbook; and Statistics to Stats/My Guests. We hope to implement more of your changes in the near future. To show our appreciation for your help, Frank would like to thank your lucky stars! If you were born under a fire sign (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius), howl out a fiery woot, and Frank will send you a mystery egg to celebrate your virtual birthday! This egg will open on Friday, April 2nd, to reveal a very special surprise!

Stuff you should know:

  • We hope you love our new header as much as we do (thanks again to ohterlus for creating our leafy design)! All non-Cyrillic users should now see the new header. We've already received a number of fantastic submissions for our next header design contest. You can continue to submit entries to remixed through March 31st. We'll post a poll in the newsletter so you can choose which one you'd like to see at the top of LiveJournal from mid-April to mid-May. The winner will receive a $25 LiveJournal gift certificate. All other participants will get a $5 gift certificate. You can submit as many entries as you like, but we'll only award one gift certificate per user. Thanks, again, for sharing your talent!
  • We'd love to get your suggestions for our next fundraiser at remixed. In the meantime, we hope you'll support Doctors without Borders by purchasing a charitable vgift. Not only will we donate all sales proceeds (we'll cover the credit card fees), but, if you receive $10 in vgifts during a two-month period, you'll get two months of paid account time.
  • If you're in the market to buy or sell a gently used ping-pong table, laptop, or Wonder Woman lava lamp, you can check out our new affiliate Classifieds section and start turning those old pocket watches into pocket change. You'll find Classifieds listed under LJ Extras in the LiveJournal menu.
  • We resolved the issue that was causing comment counts to increment improperly. For those of you whose comment count was mistakenly reset to zero, your counter should now reflect the correct number.
  • We fixed the issues with Scrapbook (including privacy settings for uploaded and/or edited images, character encoding in tags, and gallery navigation/sorting). Thanks for your patience.

A bonny bunny bonbon for our paid users!

If you have a paid or permanent account, you can send five free Sugary Bunnies through Monday, March 29th at 4pm, PST! You'll see both the free and the $0.99 bunnies displayed until they've hopped off to your friends. If you're not receiving vgifts (from friends and/or Frank), you can check your vgift settings by visiting Edit profile (under Profile) and scrolling down to the bottom of the page. May your happiness multiply like rabbits!

For our featured photo and more fun with Frank, we'll catch you under the cut! Collapse )
Thanks, again, for joining us. We'll see you next week!
