It seems that some journals are being considered spammers for linking to any sites outside of Livejournal, and being deleted.. So if this is all true, and will become a regular thing when someone links outside of the site, then I may consider putting a halt to cross-posting to Livejournal altogether. I’ll be keeping an eye on the comments over in that entry, so that I might see what develops. Currently, it's a wait and see/learn more situation.

Given that I link to things outside of Livejournal, it’s quite likely that I would be suspended for mistakenly being a spammer if an errant spambot script got hold of my journal; each cross-post is technically a link to outside of Livejournal, even if you don’t factor in linking to fanfic posted to Ao3 or wherever else I collect links from.

Kudos to [personal profile] meridian_rose for mentioning this, as it was the first I had heard of it.

I periodically import any comments from the Livejournal side (and now that the influx of new people importing has slowed a bit, it only takes about 5-20 minutes to complete an import as of this writing) so that nothing will be lost if my Livejournal happens to fall under some vague thing that all ends with a deletion, temporary or otherwise.

To those who prefer commenting on the LJ side: Should anything happen to my journal, you can easily find me and add me on Dreamwidth if you have an account there and haven’t already. Same username, even if you don’t have access to a cross-post link.

I came up with a few potential usernames for the Gothic Horror/Romance group in addition to a couple that were suggested, so you get a poll.

Poll #18304 Community Name Decision Time

Which one (or two, if you can't decide) sounds best?

The winner of the poll is Gothic Horror/Romance, with 9 votes. In a very close second place with 7 votes, people were in favor of me creating a community for both that, and Dracula.

I'll get started on creating a community in the next few days, once I've thought up a suitable username for it. gothic_lit feels a bit too confining for it, as it isn't just literature.

So it would be a bit less than 2 weeks before my own Dreamwidth anniversary. I didn’t miss it, since I apparently created my account almost a month after almost everyone else I’ve seen doing this meme.

All comments have imported successfully for [community profile] librarian_films and [community profile] relation_ships as of half an hour ago. I discovered and cleaned up one case of Russian spam in the form of a truly massive wall of text in a comment of the latter from about a year ago, which went unnoticed (but screened, even following the import) until now.

As planned, both communities were deleted from the Livejournal side once I made certain that everything was in order. Following input in favor of not going that route, I plan to leave [community profile] big_damn_quests in both places. It's safely backed up here on Dreamwidth, should anything worse remove it over there.
calliopes_pen: (iconsbycurtana Egyptology Evie)
Before you delete your Livejournal account, if you plan to do so? Or even just if you’re planning to stay, and don’t plan to delete it, you may desire to claim your Open ID account anyway. It’s one of the many links in the Dreamwidth Starter Kit that [personal profile] bisharp made, but I thought I’d do a separate post on the topic, just in case anyone missed it.

As an example, back when I did it, I simply typed in calliopes-pen.livejournal.com and calliopes-pen.insanejournal.com.

Once you’ve done that, older comments that you made that were imported from both Livejournal and Insanejournal immediately become linked to your Dreamwidth account. So calliopes-pen.insanejournal.com becomes calliopes_pen in whatever journal, and goes straight here when clicked on. A user icon will then appear beside it, just as it once did wherever the comment originated.

(Expect it to take a while longer to import your journals, too, if you haven’t seen that update already. It’s still going quite admirably as it tries to bring over [community profile] big_damn_quests. As of this moment, it’s 1614 others waiting in the queue, after a day. I’m amused, more than anything. I’m just glad the site hasn’t broken from the strain.)
calliopes_pen: (iconsbycurtana librarians rule the world)
I have successfully transferred all images in the Livejournal Scrapbook over to Dreamwidth for the ice storm post from 2009, and switched out all the accompanying links there, and for the Livejournal side, before deleting the images in the Scrapbook.

I noticed that it had a duplicate entry. My first thought was that it was caused back when I first imported everything years ago, but no. It's that way on the Livejournal side as well, so it's an old Livejournal hiccup that occurred at some point. As there were no comments to that Livejournal hiccup, I deleted it on both sides to prevent further issues.

Edit: Oh, and for those interested: [personal profile] bisharp has made a Dreamwidth Starter Kit, for those that are making the move from Livejournal to Dreamwidth, and need tutorials, customizations, groups for obtaining assistance, and an assortment of other things.

*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.

Around 2 PM yesterday, we had a weird meteorological effect. It looked like there were three suns. One real, two (obviously) not, but still very bright. Across the two fake ones were two separate miniature rainbows. The local news said it was called a Sundog, caused by ice crystals. It lasted about an hour. Here’s a better example that I found, following a quick Google search. (Upon hearing this via phone, Dad asked if the freezing cold had done things to us. No. Not quite.)

For anyone thinking of migrating to Dreamwidth, (or just having a back-up journal just in case they wish to be ready for the next outage) due to the issues that have been plaguing Livejournal lately, I’m calliopes_pen over there. Also, if you only want me to follow you on Dreamwidth and not LJ anymore, just let me know.

There's talk of my sister being sent home by the hospital, despite her not being any better. Eight hours after she gets some more blood, which was supposed to be this morning. They're still waiting on that (or were, as of 1:45 PM). We'll see what happens there, since the flesh eating stuff spread a bit further (and peripheral edema wasn't down at all) last I heard, despite the gauze wrapped around her head to halt the stuff oozing. They just want her to go to a wound care place, and walk a bit (which she can't do).

ETA: Correction: They started giving her blood around 2:05 PM, so they'll probably let her out around 10 PM.

Anyone know if there’s a way to alter the coding of my journal layout however it needs to be done, so that I can then use it in S2 and stick it on my Dreamwidth journal?
