There are local elections taking place in much of England & for the Scottish Assembly on 3rd May (I have no idea what's happening in Wales). The deadline to register to vote (you're eligible to register if you're a British, Commonwealth, Irish or citizen of an EU country) is 18th April - that's next Wednesday. You ought to have registered last October during the annual canvass, ie. when a form is sent round and you have to complete it with deails of who lives in the property, so this should only be relevant if you happened to miss the annual canvass or you've moved house and you want to vote at your new address (in these circumstances you are entitled to vote from your old address automatically).

See About my vote for details of the elections in your area and info on how to register/request a postal or proxy vote.

Please don't buy me an LJ virtual gift. Give 50p to charity or something instead. As per the FAQ there is a way to remove unwanted gifts from one's user info page. If I do receive abusive/offensive gifts I will remove them.

Possibly a wee bit early for this, but you might as well have it while I remember. If you live in England, you're highly likely to have local elections on 4th May 2006. To be eligible to vote in those elections you must register by 13th March 2006. If you're not registered, or if you want to apply for a postal/proxy vote, go to http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/ to get the form. You will need to post the form - they're not englightened enough for fax/email submissions yet.

You are eligible to register if you are: a British Citizen, an Irish Citizen, a Citizen of a Commonwealth county or a Citizen of a European Union country. If you are a British Citizen living overseas there's a separate form to use.

I'm really fed up with having non-work-safe user pics on my friends' page. No, am not calling into question anyone's right to have non-work-safe pictures or to use them when they want. I just don't want them on my friends page - which I regularly read from places other than my own home.

It seems that the solutions to this are:

(a) using the Lynx site scheme, which I don't want to do, because I much prefer XColibur for its useful functions.

(b) changing my journal style to one that doesn't use user pictures at all, and I don't want to do that 'cos I like the 'Classic' style. I want to keep my journal style as simple and unfussy as possible because I'm more interested in the content of what I'm/other people are writing than the style in which it's written. I'm also aware that most people will be reading in their own style through their own friends pages so don't see the point in spending time on a style no one will use.

(c) getting bogged down in S2 layers and seeing if I can remove the code that displays user pics on friends pages.

I am about to do (c), so if stuff goes wacky, this is why.

Now done - way of doing it was: Advanced customisations, create custom theme layer, copy in the print_entry bit from the Classic source code and then edit the line

if ($userpic != "" and ($p.view == "friends" or $*show_entry_userpic == true))
      {
          print $userpic;
      }


so that "friends" = "recent".

This means I get user pics on my recent entries page and none on my friends' page and I'm happy:-)
