A Gathering Of Links For Those Crossing Over, And Archiving

*People have discovered that if you disable Javascript, you disable the message that appears and won’t go away until you agree to the new TOS. You can do this by using Ghostery or uBlock Origin or Noscript. At which point, while you can’t make a new post or comment or cross-post without agreeing, you can still delete your journal over there if that’s what you personally feel is right for you. Found via [personal profile] justhuman: [personal profile] rosefox shows the steps for getting it to go away with uBlock Origin.

*The full English translation of the Russian version of the new TOS.

*If you make the transition and change your username, there’s always this post at [community profile] 2017revival: Want to find an old LJ friend? Linking DW and LJ identities. [community profile] lj_refugees is another place to go if you just joined, as is [community profile] getting_started.

*How to move to Dreamwidth and like it.

*From [personal profile] rahirah: How to redirect comments on a crosspost.

*I was trying to determine if I should import anything I was maintainer of long ago. [livejournal.com profile] big_damn_quests is seriously long since dead. Would anyone be averse to me importing it on over to Dreamwidth, just for archival purposes? It’s been dead for 10 years as of this year, and I’ve moved away from the Firefly fandom.

*I just completed saving all the inactive icons in the [livejournal.com profile] x_meggan journal. Over 70 of those.

*Tomorrow I’ll get started on slowly adding what was in Livejournal’s scrapbook to Dreamwidth’s service, and then slowly go through and try to correct broken links as I delete them from the Livejournal side.

*Long ago, I roleplayed Willow from Buffy, under the name [livejournal.com profile] strega_willow. I’ve just saved all the inactive icons there, and I’m thinking of importing it over to Dreamwidth, too. That will only happen if I decide any of it’s worth keeping after I go through and read it. If it isn't, then I'll delete that journal.

*If I haven’t added someone on the Dreamwidth side yet, please let me know in the comments and I will do it.

Edit: As of 1:40 PM, I finished going through the entirety of Scrapbook, and deleted anything I would never need again. It was time for cleaning out the assorted junk that had accumulated anyway. As stated earlier, whatever is left will be hosted on Dreamwidth soon.

Thanks for these links. I need to just make DW more of a habit and go there first instead of here.

Thanks for the helpful links! I wish lj wasn't being such a pain.
