One way to get famous on My Opera is to have one (or more) of your photo albums featured among the top rated pictures. A couple of weeks ago this was what happened to this blogger. This confused her, so she decided to write a post about it. We ponder how she'll react to this post...
Anyway, earlier today we noticed that her status changed:
Hopefully she'll stop freezing soon... Oh, by the way, we demand to see the status updated to: "Jumping and screaming".
This week's spotlighted member is a really cool one. Everyone, please congratulate rose-marie, this week's member of the week!

Let's Build the Future Together!
The amount of detail in this picture is nothing but amazing. The creator, Oleg Melnichuck, must have spent countless hours on this illustration. There's no doubt that this picture deserves max attention from both the Opera community, but also from respective design communities. Oleg can look forward to receive an Opera latop bag packed with goodies. Congratulations, and thanks for creating this masterpiece.
Operaman and Speed Dial
Khadgar's motivation for creating this super(hero) cool comic of the Operaman with his sidekick Speed Dial was to receive a cheesy cheese slicer. This is one of the coolest drawings we've ever seen and we know that many Opera employees who already have found their new favorite wallpaper or screensaver picture. A favorite among the Opera staff, but also (now) for the Opera community. We'll personally make sure Khadgar receives a brand new My Opera t-shirt and his cheese slicer.
Opera In Flames
The third place was suggested from one of our users. It has quality written all over it and has a really cool fire element to it. You can never go wrong with that.
Opera Fan Art
We also received 30 more great submission which all deserves a spotlight.
We're sure there are a lot of other great Opera fan art out there, so keep it coming. We would like to thank everyone who submitted their work. We had a lot of fun with this contest.

This Friday we want you to meet a 20 year old Lithuanian student who's been a member since July 2006. He has a fully customized blog and it's easy to tell that he has an eye for design.
Even though he doesn't have the biggest collection of blog posts they are all of superb quality. He also has an impressive photo album collection. One album in particular is dedicated to his newest shots. At the moment he's learning how to become a professional photographer by mastering different angle compositions. His shots are of course on display and he's very interested in feedback, so please tell him your opinion!
We want to congratulate MEMXE; this year's first member of the week!

Her blog is titled "A dive in the pond" and it truly is. Her posts are a great mix of everything from work-related subjects, to great music festivals, and cool My Opera news.
We're simply star struck by her blog and the high level of activity she has in our community. It's great to see someone with so much joy actually express it. Good stuff!
When she received her free Rock Opera tattoos she decided to try it out and share the moment with all of us... And it looks great! Just check it out:
Keep up the good work and thanks for always spreading the word about Opera violetisha. You're this week's member of the week! Congrats!
