My stance on the Livejournal/Dreamwidth issue

Hi everyone!

So as you may know, a lot of people are closing their LJ to move to Dreamwidth regarding the new TOS.
As for me, I don't intend to close my LJ at all, I will still post here. I was backing up at Dreamwidth since some months now as a precaution, but today I finally updated everything with the same layout, so if you prefer to follow me there for whatever reason, please do so here:

I repeat, I will crosspost on both plateforms, so if you don't want to go to dreamwidth, I'll still post here. This is just a precaution. (I still need to update every LJ links in every entries, this will take forever *sob*)

Basically, I prefer it here, but i the end, I'll just go wherever the fandom will go, that means, wherever the main Arashi communities will go.
My main, and only issue with all of this is if the old and unmaintained communities are purged, that would be catastrophic! I don't want to relive another Megaupload tragedy! I'm working on a tutorial to help people (especially new fans) to get around finding subs and raws without help (while respecting the rules, duh!), because it might be time for you to download what you postponned for so long :/

Anyway, those waiting for News Zero, it will be released on Saturday or Monday, I had great difficulties getting the raw this week, sorry D:

Just added you over on DW, I'm sacchanxd there too.

I imported my old entries back when the first paranoia struck but I basically got lazy to crosspost all the subs I posted after that (cause using the crossposter messes up the entry layout sometimes), so I'm trying another import and god damn the queue is LONG

I guess a whole bunch of people are moving now lol

I'm still being stubborn and hoping this is all just a scare and nothing will happen to LJ though cause I really don't wanna start over joining comms and adding friends and such man ;-; but u gotta do what u gotta do

Oh yes! It took several hours to back up my comm some days ago, their servers must be oversaturated (but at least, the site is not down!)
Let's see that as a new adventure (even thgough I really wanna stay here :/ )

Just added you on DW... I use the same ID both on LJ and DW. I hope you accept me.

Thank you

Either way, i am following you in both LJ and DW. and i do appreciate your subs :)

It's actually really easy to do (although it will take several hours, as everyone is moving from LJ to DW, their servers are oversaturated)

Thank you so much for letting us know.
Personally, I try not to think about it too much, but as you say, if all the big communities move.... I have to move with them. Same thing regarding authors.
I will keep an eye out of course (:
In the meantime, I will follow you on DW too ^^

8th-Apr-2017 07:55 am (UTC)
Same as LJ. xDestroying (:
8th-Apr-2017 08:53 am (UTC)
Added you there :)
Let's take this as a new adventure XD

I think to do like you, wherever the fandom goes I will go too. I think that one of the most important thing is that the fandom stays all together because there is seriously the risk of falling apart. Many comms are at risk and I'm really worried about them, that's why I'm trying to download as many things as possible. Unfortunately many mods are out of the fandom so the only thing that we can do is dl. Hope to finish soon this 'project'.

P.S: I will follow you in DW, I use the same name there.
8th-Apr-2017 12:41 pm (UTC)
Just added you over on DW..
My user name is same as here..
8th-Apr-2017 12:47 pm (UTC)
added your dreamwidth~ with my username there (skaila)
yeah, it's too sad to see many friends & communities leave this lovely place.. but well, 'll follow them wherever they go~
and Thanks for always subbing News Zero :)
8th-Apr-2017 06:25 pm (UTC)
Followed you there but I have no plans of leaving either. :) This is like home! Thanks for the info.
Personally, I think there's no need to worry? But backing up doesn't hurt either.

Ah, am wondering is it difficult to import the journal styles as well? I just put my import on the queue on an acc I made years back haha.

I have the same ID on dw, adding you there as well :D

I used this tutorial, it works for Flexible Squares, Smooth Sailing, Mixit and Nebula (both my journal and my comm are Smooth Sailing), it worked like a charm.

Thank you so much for deciding to crosspost in the meantime. It really is so helpful and a bit less stressful cause I feel absolutely clueless about what I'm supposed to do.
Also, could I please what am I supposed to click that would be equivalent to adding friend on LJ. Cause over in DW I clicked subscribe and grant access for you to see my entries but I just did it cause I saw the button and aren't really sure if that's right
9th-Apr-2017 08:47 am (UTC)
Subscribing and granting access is the DW equivalent to adding a friend on LJ so you did the right thing ^^
10th-Apr-2017 05:49 am (UTC)
Hi! I also added you on DW. I have the same lj username on my DW. I'm still in the process of importing and I have no clue if I'm doing it right. Wish me luck.
10th-Apr-2017 09:06 am (UTC)
You should read this tutorial by coolohoh :)
13th-Apr-2017 02:27 am (UTC)
I've been so busy trying to fix the mess that my DW journal became, I've fallen behind on other stuff and just now saw this post. Added you there, though I'm still around LJ, too. :)
