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!

*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.§

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"

Then select "no."

Did so and got the following message:

Error setting property: Illegal value. Must be 'yes' or 'no'.

Wasn't sure if I had to set it to yes or no. Do I need to repost my entry in order for it to show up on the page? Definitely let me know.

Thank you so much for all of your help.

set it to "no" and just in case, you should repost again.

I have a similar problem.

Only this time I got to the part where it said it said Error Setting property. Illegal value. Must be 'yes' or 'no.' But when I wrote no in the box, it said "there was no such command."

You might want to visit http://support.livejournal.com and submit a support ticket. It may have to do with your account?
