I'm going to get back from nine weeks of relative internet exile and everyone is going to have buggered off to Dreamwidth.

We won't abandon you completely!

At least you'll know where to find us! :)

Please to be explaining this Dreamwidth to those of us who have NFI?

We'll have worked out all the bugs.

Ah feck, I doubt it. I don't know. I'm not sure I'm sufficiently into the fan side of things to really go over there. I like LJ; the subscribe/trust thing sounds just as complicated; and right now all the layouts look horrible.

I suppose I also think that what happened with Strikeout could happen to any service, no matter what people say about its fan-friendliness.

I think LJ really needs to worry about Twitter, right now. And Wordpress (although not in a fannish sense). Wordpress has just introduced threaded comments and LJ imports.

I might get a second identity and use LJ as an RSS feed for reading all the nice artycrafty blogs I keep falling over.

I've already seen DW posts agonizing about the complicated "etiquette" of subscribing vs. trusting, so, yeah. And Twitter's my new big alternative timesuck, not any of the LJ clones.

Oh yeah. I notice Dreamwidth's TOS still talks about illegal content, so I confidently expect a massive outcry and people flouncing from it the first time someone gets told that their magnificent Snape/YearSeven!Harry fisting artwork is unacceptable.

*G*

Well, I've already seen the first tortured Metafandom post on how changing to the new access/subscribe/trust thing is going to upset all their friendslist. Parts of that sound quite nifty but I always think it's a bad idea if I have to spend a few minutes working out what each term means.

I'm still here. I'm too lazy to crosspost and I think I don't write enough meta (i.e. any) to fit in over there.

I'm not going anywhere anytime soon. I see no reason to trust a brand new company with my data/info/credit card.

I'm still here. I have a permanent account. I don't really even know what Dreamwidth IS.

Oh thank God. I thought I was the only person who didn't have any idea.

I also have a permanent account and if I didn't migrate to MySpace or Facebook then I really am unlikely to go to this Dreamthing.

Good luck. The internets will miss you.

Take Care

Come back soon!

no! I'll be here...pathetically...

I don't even know what Dreamwidth is, except I see people asking for invites.

I'll be here by myself, apparently.

Not by yourself at all.

There's a pretty good/short summary here.

Eh, nobody's leaving.

If I do migrate over there, I'll be crossposting and whatnot. The intent is that the walls between the services come down or be invisible, so that one can comment and read locked posts with an ID from another service (like LJ), and therefore one needn't worry too much about folks disappearing.

I do like the idea that I can import everything, including comments and locked posts, so that I won't lose it all in a web-accessible place if LJ someday goes down.

I think most people will be crossposting. I don't see LJ going away entirely anytime soon.

Chances are I'll be posting to both - if I can master Semagic!
