Regarding issues with Dreamwidth

Guys, I have to apologize if you ever commented on any of my entries in my dreamwidth journal because your comment most likely got deleted.

I tried to slowly transition there by posting in LJ and DW at the same time instead of importing my entries everytime (especially since their import queue is currently over crowded, the worst it took to import was 3 days in my case!).
But I've encountered a serious, bothering issue with the way their cuts is managed, it just doesn't work at all! I tried everything for a week and I'm loosing my hair here!

I just decided in the end, I'll do as I did for the past few months, I'll post to LJ as always, and then I'll import to DW (so that means I'll be posting on arashi_off only after the import is done, which can be delayed by several days compared to LJ).

That also means it's an absolute nightmare to edit imported entries including cuts, so I cannot edit any of my old entries, on my DW journal (so the masterpost links back to LJ links) or on arashi_yuuki imported DW.

I have already reported the issue to DW maintenance, so I hope it will be fixed in the near future. So I apologize in advance for the DW exclusive users, you will have to wait several minutes to several days to see my posts there :/

My imported entries still had their cuts intact for some reason, thankfully. But every time I try crossposting a new entry it either messes up the layout on DW or messes up the layout on LJ. The 'cut' function is probably coded differently in both websites. Heck, even linebreaks are different.

So I just give up and leave it looking like crap then editing it individually once it's both posted.

And by edit it's literally writing it again from scratch cause like I said their coding is different lol. But by crossposting it the next time I import comments they'll go on to their respective entries if that makes sense... So I just persevere.

This whole ordeal is a trial lol. Ganbarou!

I actually got this answer, so yeah, not using it until it's fixed.
You should submit a request too, because the more we are, the sooner it wil be fixed!
