Yes. You've been wondering, and now it's finally happening.

With recent changes in LJ's ownership and terms, concerns about censorship, and even journals being deleted due to misguided attempts to squash spambots, we have decided it is best to find a new home. As many of you predicted, Dreamwidth seems to be the place :)

Red, as comm owner, is planning to import the comm to Dreamwidth in the next couple of days. Once it's done, we will make another announcement post letting you know and providing a link... which hopefully doesn't get us deleted as a spambot lol.

Because the comm will be remaining here as well, but posting will be disabled; all posting from then on will be done at Dreamwidth. The original hope was for DW to just be a backup and to have the comm still active here, but since any posts or comments added here at LJ post-import would NOT show up on the comm at DW, that would mean we'd have to constantly re-import, which just makes no sense. GIH at LJ will continue to be a tremendous fandom resource, as an ARCHIVE.

I never spent much time at DW, but I imported my own LJ over there to sort of prepare myself for these changes, and I do quite like it. We think this move will be best for everyone and we hope you agree! If you have any questions, I may or may not know the answers, but feel free to ask! ;) Thanks!!

Dot, Red, & Court

Would we all have to make DW accounts to remain members and post questions?

Good luck.

Not nice. Keep it cute or put it on mute.

I'm surprised you don't have a backup journal already. I've had an Insane Journal since 2007, and a DW since 2009, I think.

Smart thing to do, guys. You never know what'll happen and DW seems to be the best of the lot in terms of ease of transfer. I still have all the people who've subscribed to my feed, so I wouldn't lose anyone if LJ did something bad. I'm happy I did it and I still mostly "live" on LJ. However, all my fic is there, so I'm good!

Thanks for the update!
I have the 2 main comms I maintain all backed up at DW (queer_as_fics & qaf_giftxchnge), plus my own. Now to just to get back into using journals and getting into DW!

Yep. I probably won't get around to exporting til tomorrow. I'm thinking we'll keep posting abilities open til the end of the month.

In the long run it's probably a wise move.
