A la carte userpics, Google Analytics, Frank recycles!

We're relieved delighted to announce that a la carte userpics are back in the shop! We fixed some of the outstanding issues (more details below). We'll be making additional tweaks, but we know how long you've been waiting, so we wanted to get them back on the shelf ASAP. Back on dry land, we're still celebrating this big blue marble we call home! Holler out a huzzah beside a tree-hugging userpic, and Frank'll send you a sweet sapling to honor your belated Earth Day birthday (since it's never too late to go green)!

Important stuff to know:

  • A la carte userpics are back: We've fixed the ability to purchase userpic add-ons through automatic payments. If you purchase add-ons with a one-time manual payment, you will now see details on how your purchase will be credited. Please note that if you already have at least one add-on package for your account, you can use the new Userpic Package Resizing Tool anytime to change how your add-on package(s) and time are arranged.
  • Google Analytics: We resolved the issue that was preventing you from tracking traffic to your Journal (this is not yet available for communities). Here's a reminder on how it works: If you have a Paid or Permanent account, sign up for a Google Analytics account, click on the Extensions tab in your Account settings, and paste the Google Web property ID number in the designated field. You'll need to allow up to 24 hours to view data!
  • ONTD: We're proud to report that our mighty ops guys (once again, dressed in full Ninja gear) successfully moved ohnotheydidnt to another server, which has resulted in faster load times all around!
  • WB_Unplugged: We're excited that wb_unplugged is taking off! We're hoping more of you will start posting questions! Just to clarify, our objective here is to inspire you to write about and discuss topics that are too edgy for our youth-friendly homepage (no obscenity, of course). We look forward to hearing what you've got to say!

May header design contest!

We've already received a number of fantastic entries for our next LiveJournal header contest. We'll be accepting submissions at remixed through the end of the month! We'll then post polls so you can choose which design will appear at the top of LiveJournal during the month of June (btw, the second winning header will go live next week and will remain on LiveJournal through the end of May). The winner will be awarded a $25 gift certificate. Finalists receive $10 gift certificates. All other contributors will get $5 gift certificates (only one per user)! We can't wait to see your work!

Attention Paid and Permanent users: Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle with Frank!

If you have a paid or permanent account, you can send five free low carbon vgifts through Monday, April 26th at 4pm, PST! You'll see both the free and the $0.99 eco-Franksters displayed until you've re-purposed all of them. Please send only one at a time. In other words, you'll need to complete check-out and start a new order for each vgift you send. 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. Have fun saving the planet!

Thanks, again, for joining us. We'll see you next week!
