Permanent account sale imminent! Other news summary bits!

news: Heads-up on the changes that will be taking place before they go live! MyLJ link removed from top navigation bar. Vertigo is almost here! Updates on the non-fiction contest, including some love for international and Arizona users. LJ's been eating too much ice cream finally figured out how to make the "purge deleted accounts" thing not totally kill the servers, so the deleted accounts will be coming available Real Soon Now.
