Here is a statement on the recent LJ TOS stuff. Snagged from [livejournal.com profile] frelling_tralk.

I'm probably staying put. Though I do have a Dreamwidth account here, which has all my stuff imported up through the end of 2016. Though the pictures are all just links to the LJ versions. I should probably use a Photos account or something.

Anyway, if you do start up a Dreamwidth account, pls friend me?

I have something like 5000 icons from icon posts on the scrapbook, a permanent account, and am used to my social networks being subject to foreign laws I don't like.

I will keep posting to both (same name)

Yeah I'm backed-up on DW just in case, but I really don't want to leave my permanent account and all my icons :sighs: I can't see that anything in that TOS is going to have much effect on how we currently use LJ, it's not all that different from what you'd get on Facebook or any social media platform, they're just covering themselves legally

I'll stay on LJ as long as there is more activity here than on Dreamwidth, but I did just do a new import to get all my entries over there. While I've had an account there for ages, I stopped cross-posting long ago because no one read on DW, and I just couldn't be bothered. Now I'm backed up, and I'll wait to see how things go down.

In the meantime, I've friended you on DW.

The troubling thing about the TOS stuff is that the version we see isn't legally binding. Only the original version is, and I unfortunately don't read Cyrillic, plus there's some vagueness on what's deemed spam/offensive material under the new translation.

That said, this time there seems to be a definite uptick- a decent chunk of the flist, considering the dwindling population as it is, has moved over entirely/shifted to crossposting.

And added you on DW!

I'm lostrack621 over there and think I just friended you? I have pretty much never used dreamdwith... I remember making an account over there years ago when there was a huge LJ blowup but :: meh ::.

I don't even know how to port over my LJ entries (maybe I did it years ago when I first opened the account?), not that I've really been active here on LJ... sigh. sadface.

Can you link me to directions on how to sync?

I still have to go through and friend people back. I am slow on the uptake over at DW.

However, I do know how to import your journal; you go to the Journal Import Page (https://www.dreamwidth.org/tools/importer) and from there it is super easy.

One thing it does not do, however, is move your pictures to be stored locally. It just makes links to your scrapbook images on LJ. At some point I will probably change that. I should probably start using Google Photos and just link pictures from there. But that will be a big move.

I am experimenting today with using the import feature twice on the same journal. It doesn't let you provide a date range, however A FAQ I read somewhere said that it should only import the newer entries if you did a previous import. We shall see...
