stuff for Monday update

[staff profile] mark
That time of the week again (woah). Who has something for Monday's update?

I was thinking of calling out a community or two, or interesting people who could use some more readers? Does anybody have any suggestions? (I'll contact them before putting them in the post, of course.)

[community profile] earwormhole is a little lonely. It's mostly me.

[community profile] boilingwater hasn't seen much action either.

[community profile] beginningcocks is only safe for YOUR workplace.

I'll always vote for [community profile] omnomnom, sister community to [community profile] boilingwater not to mention a DW original :). Of course I'm biased...

That's either naked hottubs full of guys, or rooster stew.

Support's been working hard on getting some documentation in place for what we do. Rho updated a metric ton of FAQs this weekend, so if people are bored, they might want to take a browse through and learn something new! FAQ 179 is brand new, as is 180.

There is a proto-code tour up in [site community profile] dw_lounge that is current up until yesterday, though it needs someone who knows wtf is going on to look at it.

As you know, [community profile] omnomnom is running a contest for autumn-appropriate recipes. Prize is 2 months paid time. Link here: http://omnomnom.dreamwidth.org/30667.html (We have journal search! You can search for recipes!!)

I'd also suggest [community profile] the_dw_herald and maybe [site community profile] dreamscapes as potentials. :)

One of my friends, [personal profile] scatmania, made a tool to pull locked posts from LJ and put them in Google Reader, and it also works with Dreamwidth - currently experimentally, but works it does.

I doubt he'd mind at all - he invites comments and has a contact form on his website. Or, if you prefer, I can check with him tomorrow to make sure he's okay with me giving you his personal email, or ask him to drop you a message.

[personal profile] yvi is recommending a community every day in October. I'm also always surprised by the number of people who don't know about [site community profile] dw_community_promo.

There's also the current debate in [site community profile] dw_suggestions about the frequency of news posts.

[community profile] metaquotes might could use some traffic!

Oh, and I've had a few people ask about more invite codes in the past week or so. Before the update, let's give out another 30k (or whatever we can support, etc) to people who've used all theirs?

Thanks. I don't really 'need need' them, I just like to have spare ones for when I do get asked, so I can just go to my invite page and copy them. I used quite a few for [community profile] firefly_bigbang.

Yeah - they've been sitting in [site community profile] dw_codesharing for a while and haven't been touched - I don't mind. And if [personal profile] yvi needed them urgently she'd grab them first.

Have we ever mentioned sticky entries? I have no idea when the next code push will be, but it might be good to mention that there will be a new setting after it?

Not sure about which other patches could be mentioned. Or should patches get mentioned after the code-push? I am never sure about these things :)
