B.Y.O.B Gift-Away!

Tis' the season, as it is often said, to embrace our companions and reflect as another year comes to pass. Considering the LiveJournal family spans geographic and cultural borders the world over, recognizing all the subtleties and diversity of December celebrations can be a daunting task.

To that end, we here at LiveJournal U.S. invite you to join us in our celebration of December holidays at LJ's very first B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Beliefs) Gift-Away! Bring out your favorite spirit of the season as we openly embrace the customs (or lack thereof) of the final month of the year. To get your chestnuts roasting, we're throwing special giveaways on both LJ and Facebook. Here are the details:

LiveJournal Writer's Block
When: Monday, December 12th to Friday, December 16th

BOTH CONTESTS OPEN to U.S. RESIDENTS ONLY

*We're currently looking at changes to the site that would allow our editorial teams across the globe to cater promotions and content to specific regions. With this change, the door will be open for promotions of all kinds for all of our members.

While it's a less-than-perfect situation at the moment, I'm optimistic that these future changes will make promotional events more inclusive than ever before. We definitely understand your frustration and hope to improve the situation within the next few months.§

I have a question about the Writer's Block one. My minimum is set to friends only, so I have to go back and change submission entries to public after posting them, but I'm not seeing them show up in the answers list. Does it just not show us our own entries, or are mine not being seen at all?

At one point, you might have opted out of allowing your entries to show up on WB. You can change it back by going to http://www.livejournal.com/admin/console and running the command "set latest_optout 0"

Will our entries still count if that wasn't done? I didn't realize it was on. I changed it so I show up now, but my entry yesterday probably didn't show up.

we're going to pick all the winners at the end of the week, so you can enter any wb until then. :)

It's telling me I need to use either yes or no. Which should I pick?

Also, if I do this, will my last two entries count for the contest? As in, will it retroactively enter them? Thanks!
