Extreme Livejournal!

Ever had the urge to post from somewhere extreme? Somewhere stupid or silly, somewhere unusual or somewhere quite impressive? Not quite sure how your usual audience will take it? ("Sad geek!")

Well, indulge your fetish here. Update your livejournal by posting here saying where you are (and why, if you so wish!) At the end of every month, a poll will be run to determine who wins the Extreme Livejournal User of the Month! No prizes as such, but the winner will get their name in lights on the soon-to-be-created Official Website.

Methods you could use to update:

  • Via sms_to_lj - a fantastic SMS to Livejournal gateway developed by dan_lane! Now everyone can update their journal from wherever. Easy instructions on how to set stuff up for this are here. Thoroughly recommended :-)

  • Via WAP at http://wap.ubique.ch/wapblogger/ - this client allows posting to communities unlike other WAP clients

  • Via Opera on a Symbian phone. You can get Opera for Series 60 and UIQ amongst other platforms.

  • Via Internet Explorer on an MS Smartphone

  • Via the email to lj method, only recently set up.

  • NEW! Photo method! Via a free moblg.net Photo Blog account where you can email photos in and they appear in your photo blog. Whilst you can't post the photos directly to here, you can turn the RSS feed it generates into a livejournal friend. Which means you could always leave an sms_to_lj comment here linking to your Photo Blog lj name. Information on setting up syndicated RSS feeds can be found here.


    DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE TEXTAMERICA AS THEY ARE A BUNCH OF UNPROFESSIONALS WHO WILL DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT IF YOU DARE CRITICISE THEIR LACK OF SERVICE ANYWHERE ONLINE


    The Rules:

    1. You must update at the time. No writing the entry then posting it when you get signal, thanks!

    2. In order to qualify for Extreme Livejournal User of the Month ticky-box, you must provide a clear photo of your location (preferably with your good self in) as proof [unless anyone can come up with a better idea?] This can take the form of:

    a) A photo uploaded at the time. Photoblogs can be used here so long as they're linked from the original post. I appreciate this could be tricky, so:

    b) A later edited post with the photo linked in. Preferably with the updating device included, although this could be tricky for those with camera phones.

    3. If you can come up with some other form of proof (I have no idea what, but you may think of something!) then you can use that instead, so long as the Moderator agrees.

    4. No rude pictures! No posts saying "I am having sex" or similar. This is a clean community.

    5. It doesn't have to be that extreme. Why not just post to say you're at a gig, on a boating lake or that you just saw Phil from Eastenders (complete with pic!) etc. If we all only posted "I'm at the top of the Eiffel Tower" posts, nothing would appear here!

    6. This list ain't exhaustive, folks!

    So, what are you waiting for? Come have a go at posting somewhere silly yourself, or at least come watch us idiots who do!
