Hello, Dreamwidth! As usual, I bring you apologies for the long gap since the last [site community profile] dw_news post (there is always something to prevent the good long chunk of time I need to write one, but I'm sick and tired of doing things that won't pan out for ages by now!) and a whole slew of interesting things to discuss and share.

Behind the cut, we bring you:

* Development update
* Text Captcha
* Icon-Related Changes
* A note from the antispam team
* Custom dictionary expansion
* Default styles poll
* Dreamwidth Arts & Culture - "Delights"

Hi all,

You're probably aware of the ongoing protests against SOPA/PIPA, two laws that are being considered in the United States legislature that, I believe, will fundamentally harm the Internet as we know it. Today, we have joined the ongoing protests against these laws:

http://www.dreamwidth.org/sopa

We have not completely blacked out the site. We debated it and while I believe it would provide a more accurate and stronger statement of protest, we decided not to because Dreamwidth is a platform that gives people a voice. We believe in our Guiding Principles and do not want to silence your voices, even if only temporarily.

While I won't say that we will never do that -- there certainly may come a time when it truly is the best way to protest -- we don't feel comfortable doing that right now. We'll see how the rest of the fight against SOPA/PIPA goes, though, and will keep everybody informed.

Thank you for using Dreamwidth. We truly wouldn't be anything without each of your contributions -- readers, writers, users, random passers-by, everything! I am truly honored to be working on a site like this.

Hi all -- I wanted to post a quick news post to let you know that community imports are now live. There's also some other content inside... down past the cut!
