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

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.

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.

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.
