Do you have an account on Dreamwidth?

Do you have an account on Dreamwidth? Can I friend you over there?

The latest news from DW (in a nutshell, trolls from hate groups are threatening actions to shut them down based on accusations of hosting child porn...*sigh*) is discouraging, but I love the calm, rational way they're handling it. It is in marked contrast to LJ's hysterical kneejerk commercial forelock tugging a couple of years ago under the same stresses, and it reminds again me that I'd really like to get more of a community going there.

So, if you're on DW and wouldn't mind my adding you to my reading/connection page, would you let me know in a comment?

I'm DarkEmeralds there, if you'd like to add me to your reading list.

I'm blueraccoon over there, should you feel so inclined.
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:17 am (UTC)
Thank you! I've added you, and my little circle of friends over there is expanding!

Now if I could figure out the whole cross-posting thing...
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:21 am (UTC)
:) I crosspost everything. it's not hard to set up - I use the web interface. Just go to "Organize", then go to "Manage Account", and click "Other Sites". You'll be able to add this account and set to crosspost by default.

Thanks! That was simple.

Of course, because all the service and cleverness and user-friendliness is on the DW side, this means I'll need to start posting by default on DW, and it will crosspost here on LJ, right?
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:31 am (UTC)
You are exactly correct.
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
I'd love to be on your reading list, if you'll have me. You're on mine. Don't write much over there, but like you, would love to be more involved in a community over there to have reason to be active.
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:13 am (UTC)
Done! I thought I had already added you.

Your icon cracks me up every time I see it.
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:23 am (UTC)
:) Thank you. I love that show.

And thanks for adding me back. I figured you either a) thought you already had, or b) wanted to keep your DW journal private. Didn't want to bug you about it in case b) was the reason.

Nah. If I did anything on DW, it was more by accident as I fumbled around.

blueraccoon just explained to me how to crosspost, so I think I shall start doing that--it seems like a rational step toward shifting over to DW.

Add away! I'm trying to get back into the swing of posting, but alas work, barn, and the 10 million shows I watch eats a lot of time. I'm lambourngb at DW. Will add you in just a sec!

ETA *blush* I see we're already acquainted over there! *head desk* I'm going to get another cup of coffee and try and reboot the brain.

Yup, you're in my circle. I must learn the DW terminology!

And now to begin posting more over there!

Excellent! Thanks. I'm adding you back.
Jan. 14th, 2010 02:06 am (UTC)
Yep, friend me over there!

I'm panisdead over there too, although I'm not currently posting. I am reading over there, though.

Jan. 14th, 2010 04:21 am (UTC)
Added back. Cool! Thanks.

Dreamwidth lets you easily crosspost FROM there to here, but LJ doesn't have the same capability for going the other way, so from what I gather, to cross-post easily, I'll be originating my posts in DW, and they will appear here in LJ.

What I'm experimenting with now is whether to force all comments over to DW--it seems unpopular, and I can see why (it's an extra log-in step for the commenter), but it would be a shame to lose one's comments when and if the day comes that LJ goes tits-up, or kicks all us heathens out.

I seem not to have you in my DW circle. How can this be?

I'm not finding you under known aliases. Who ARE you over there?
Jan. 14th, 2010 06:35 pm (UTC)
Oh wait. Duh. Found you. Hee!
Jan. 14th, 2010 01:45 pm (UTC)
I'm swwerth over there...I really need to give my account more attention!
Jan. 14th, 2010 06:05 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I'm subscribing and granting!
Jan. 14th, 2010 02:06 pm (UTC)
I think we're already cross-circled (is that a word?) but if not I'm executrix in both.

I *have* noticed that there's still a lot more traffic on the LJ side of my flist than on the DW side.
Jan. 14th, 2010 06:22 pm (UTC)
I did a half-hearted round-up of LJ friends' names on DW back when DW first got going, and I missed a lot of people. Apparently you were one of them.

That is now amended. Thanks.
Jan. 14th, 2010 04:19 pm (UTC)
Sure - I'm hardly ever over there, though.
Jan. 14th, 2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
I am planning for the future!
