Ahem. Anyway. It's another slow week, due to me and Mark having been interacting with humans all week, but behind the cut is this week's news.
This week's code tour, encompassing both this week's and last week's commits, was done by foxfirefey. It's mostly bugfix, but it does also include a new ability for community admins: the ability to open and close polls posted in the community. These fixes will all be live at the next code push.
2. Dreamwidth in Person
Our talk at LCA went wonderfully, and we had a lot of people coming up to us afterwards with questions about the project. If you're interested, you can see our slides at Slideshare, and as soon as the video of the talk is available, we'll link to it.
We haven't yet been able to implement an alternative to PayPal as described in our news post of 1/15. Until this time, the only payment methods available are check and money order. We're really sorry about the inconvenience, but it's important for us to stick to our principles and our Terms of Service.
Our offer of a free month of paid time to anyone whose paid time expiration date is coming up still stands. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org or open a Support request in the Account Payments category and let us know what your username is.
A huge thank you goes to new support volunteers triadruid, stormy, trixieleitz, azurelunatic, and andy! If you're interested in helping out other Dreamwidth users, check out the dw_support_training community.
5. Calling artists
branchandroot is working on a new style that's optimized for header images, and has put out a call for header images. If you've got artwork or photography that would make a good header image, and you own the image and are willing to license it to us on terms that allow us to redistribute the image, please see that post.
branchandroot is particularly looking for cityscape images, but anything will be appreciated!
That's it for us for another week! As always, if you're having problems with Dreamwidth, Support can help you; for notices of site problems and downtime, check the Twitter status page; if you've got an idea to make the site better, you can make a suggestion.
We'll see you next week for our next update, when I turn the reins back over to Mark for his turn.
