Homepage, Remixed, Header design contest, +1

Thanks for the feedback on our last release. We've reviewed your comments and made some key changes to the homepage, which are outlined below. This week, Frank is honoring July birthdays! If you were born this month, send Frank a huzzah and he'll roll you out a red carpet!

Important stuff to know

  • Homepage revisited: In response to your input, we've placed Journal Comments and Spotlights back on the homepage and removed the ONTD and Recent Posts widgets. Your suggestions will help guide future changes.
  • Remixed contests: We've already received a number of awesome entries for our first Remixed redesign contest, sponsored by Rickshaw Bagworks. All users are welcome to participate. Prizes include a $500 Amazon gift certificate and other great eco-friendly swag.
  • +1 ratings: We'd love you to start using the +1 ratings in lj_photophile to help us choose photos for our weekly polls!

Header design contest

Thanks to all of you for sharing your talent and for helping us select finalists and a winner for this month's header design contest. Voting on all 13 polls closes on Monday, July 12th, at 3PM, PDT. We'll post a finalist poll next week so you can choose which header will appear on the top of LiveJournal.

Frank 'n' footers for our paid users!

If you have a paid or permanent account, you can send five free footlongs, available in beef, turkey, or soy, until Monday July 12th, at 4pm, PDT! You'll see both the free and the $0.99 wieners displayed until they've been relished by your friends. Please send only one at a time. In other words, you'll need to complete check-out and start a new order for each hot dog 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. Happy munching!
