To The Past

So, I may be leaving this account open as a free account and just steadily keep deleting entries as I have time.

Thing is, I'm a mod on like 4 LJ communities and I don't want to abandon them entirely. Some don't even have an owner available for contact anymore. *le sigh*

The actual ficcery will continue to happen on Dreamwidth and AO3 going forward; that hasn't changed, but in case you see this LJ still lurking about for a while, that's what's going on.

Thanks immensely to the lovely peeps who've followed me on DW thus far, I have such warm, happy smiles seeing folks are still interested in my words. Y'all rock like tectonic plates, you sweeties! <3

Who are you at DW? I'll friend you if I haven't already. I'm still trying to really get the hang of the place.
Apr. 14th, 2017 11:25 pm (UTC)
Same name as everywhere, my dear. Come on over! :D

EDIT: Oops, it's a dash, not an underscore on DW.

Looks like we're all set over there. :)

Okay, double checked and it's an underscore after all. The URL is a dash, but to sign in and to look it up on DW you'd use an underscore. So, there?

EDIT: Spelling oopsie - fixed.

Uh.... it looks like an underscore on my friends list over there. Is it possible you created two accounts and I friended the wrong one?

No, that's actually m e being a doofus. It's an underscore. Apologies for misleading you! It wasn't intentional.

we're pally on DW, right? I'm leaving my LJ up as well, but deleting it a month a day. I'm finding so many things I had forgotten and comparing my life then to now and all the plans I had and how it turned out.

found some fics I had totally forgotten about, so that was nice.
Apr. 15th, 2017 12:06 am (UTC)
I think so? Is your DW the same essential name? I'll make sure. :D

I have been having the same experience, 'rediscovering' old fics and comment threads. *nostalgic sigh*

On the DreamWidth side it looks like I have you friended or followed or subscribed or whatever, but I don't see your posts on my friends page. Can you tell what manner of following you I'm doing?
Apr. 18th, 2017 01:02 am (UTC)
I see you in my circles thingummy as being subscribed and granting access to me and I've got you shown as the same on my side. So... all the boxes checked. Does that help?
Apr. 18th, 2017 01:31 am (UTC)
Well. Thank you. I hope I see your next post. ;)

Just in case, I checked the privacy settings on the last of the imported posts (over on DW) and it's set to 'public' - just in case that was why you couldn't see 'em or something.

Thanks! :)

How come you're deleting entries here? Did they change something when I wasn't looking?
Apr. 23rd, 2017 04:14 am (UTC)
It was that mandatory TOS nonsense, the original document of which is in Russian. LJ is owned by a Russian-based company and the Russian government is anti-LGBTQIA, essentially you're in violation of the law if you're not straight. They're also not very big on free speech, as I understand it.

The Mary Sue and Global Voices AdVox give better and more succinct information than I can.

Some of us 'old timers', having seen what happens when such changes are made (entry and account deletions for 'pornography', amongst other things), are just noping out before things get ugly. Although, a TOS not fully translated into the language in which it's being presented, and which you're forced into agreeing with, is a bit ugly IMHO.

So, that's why I (and a fair number of others) are abandoning ship. Though I'm going to have to leave at least a dinghy tied to the dock, here, since I'm sort of responsible for at least one comm and a mod for a couple few others.

Hrm hrm.
Yeah, I have a lot of stuff here to move, I guess. Or just take down, but I hate to lose the people I have here too.

Re: Hrm hrm.
Well, you could do like I did and have a message as to where you're picking up stakes and moving to. I will say, Dreamwidth can import your posts and the comments to them from LJ, so you can, literally, take it all with you. Your followers, well, that's obviously up to them, but a lot of folks are packing their camels and riding off to DW and/or AO3.

Hope to keep seeing you about the internewts, m'friend. :)
