So who's leaving, who's staying?

I don't want to go. I've been here for almost fifteen years. But if nobody else is going to be here it hardly seems worth it. :(

Oh, and I spent two hours at urgent care tonight. I have a UTI. Yay. Feels swell.

I'd say what else can happen this year but we still have a day to go. Fuck.

I'm probably gone. I've been thinking about it for a while, since there's maybe four of you I still follow over here, and this whole server move/https crap kinda cemented it. Meri says we're being paranoid, but damn, it's not really paranoia when they really are out to get you, yanno?

C'mon over to DW., We've got the best cookies.

I'm staying. I did back up my LJ at DW, but the sense I'm getting from my flist is that while folks are taking the precaution of backing up, no one is pulling up stakes and moving.

Feel better. *hugs*

I backed up also. I am not keen to move, and I would prefer not to overreact if there's no reason to. But I don't want to be alone here, either.

Thank you! Hopefully all will be well in a couple of days. *hug*

Urgent care? UTI? Yikes! Universe, give this woman a break! M.

Dreamwidth, because of this.

More info here.

I hate Chicken Little-ing. But if everyone takes off, I don't want to be the last lonely sod on the field. :(

I know, it suuuuucks!!!! I got some Cipro, though, and hopefully all will be well in a couple of days.

I appreciate that you care about other people. I've seen people announce that they're moving to DW and deleting their LJ, which means if I post flocked on LJ, they can't see it. And that kind of consideration seems irrelevant to many. Staying in touch and how best to manage that is important to me.

Me too. I just don't want to fuck off and go, 'Well, seeya, if you don't have DW, too bad..." or something. I don't want to lose the friends I've made. Maybe crossposting is the best answer. I guess we'll have to see.

Thank you, btw. :)

Not that I post on either journal, really, but I'd decided to close my lj and just have dreamwidth, but I think I've changed my mind. I have back-up the posts et al to dreamwidth and I'll likely delete them on lj, but I'm going to keep the account so that I can stay in touch with friends who aren't moving and can still comment like this.

From: [identity profile] splix.livejournal.com
I've backed up as well. It doesn't hurt. I'm glad you're not closing, and it is nice to be able to comment. I really don't want to have to leave, but if everyone does, I suppose I will too. :-/

Planning to stay, but thinking way more seriously about backing up and doing the cross-posting thing.

In re: UTI, UGH. *gentle hugs* Here's hoping the meds are effective and swift at easing the lousiness.

Glad you're staying! I've backed up myself; can't hurt, if the whole thing does go kaput. Still pondering crossposting.

Thank you! I'm sitting pretty clenched all the time, haha, but hopefully that will ease up in a few days. :D *hug*

What a scary post.

UTI (oh drink lots of water!!) and then take to the gin for all the pother of having to cross post and unload on to Dreamwidth. I do occasionally, but I've NO idea if all my early posts (my poems especially I want to keep) have gone over there.. Must check.

But I WILL NEVER leave LJ... tis MY FRIENDS - and stuff the Russians, they're going to be no bother! As long as they keep us going and don't close LJ down... I'm happy. If the Russians have so much time to spare to go poking into OUR stuff, without messing with Elections in the USA, then they're welcome. I've no doubt its been going on ever since the year Dot.

Every so often I DO post a norty to irritating spams and blogs and stuff and tell them to FUCK OFF and boil heads and so on. Charming me.

Don't worry love, I am stuck here for ever, and I trust that most of your friends will stay too. What's the panic? We've been infiltrated YONKS ago...... How do you say Happy New Year in Russian....

I'm drowning myself in H2O. :D I'll skip the gin though.

I hate the thought of leaving LJ. In my heart of hearts I hope this is all a tempest in a teapot. BAH.

Happy New Year, Lizzie. :)

I'm staying too! I'll back up at DW (same name as here), but I'm loathe to leave this place and the small, but tight, connections I've established. Should something obviously drastic happen with this site, then I'll reconsider staying, but I don't want to start over elsewhere.

Ugh, UTIs. I hope it clears up quickly!

Aw, I'm sorry to hear it. I've backed up, but I think I'll stick around unless I hear that some Russian citizens are actively disadvantaged or if something crashes. I will think about crossposting though!

I'm taking this as the good reminder to back my LJ up, but I don't think I could ever bring myself to delete my entire journal and leave forever. Granted, I'm more of a commenter than a poster at the moment, but I like knowing that it's still here.

Staying, albeit intermittently. It is getting very sparse around here, which is sad but I don't think I would have the energy any more to engage at the level I used to anyway.

Sorry you've been ill, hope you are soon well again, and wishing you a happy, healthy New Year.

Me too. I'm sad that it's so much quieter around here, but I'm not as active as I used to be either.

I hope you are feeling better today!!!

This is the first I've heard about LJ. I have a Dreamwidth account but I haven't logged on in so long that I don't even remember my password. Since it has been so long, I don't even know if my account is even active. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. This is an aggravation I sure don't need right now.

I'm staying.

Every time people have got in a flurry of what LJ is doing, the uproar has been a mystery to me. And every time it's deflated the community here a little more. I'm quite grumpy and cynical about it. I miss vibrant discussions on mailing lists, goddamnit.

I've backed up on DW and will be cross posting, but mainly to keep both journals up to date at the same time.

Everyone always says they are moving to DW, then they do, but it is boring/slow over there, so they gradually stop posting all together.

The thing that DW is lacking is all the awesome communities. :-/

I'll add you over there when I get home from work. I've never really made the jump as such, but should probably just crosspost. Oy. And I didn't realize about the comms. Crumbs. :-/

I have not been around much these past two years (RL in the form of the awesome dissertation keeps me away) and what fannish time I have I have spend on tumblr (I switched main fandoms (what can I say? the VigBean muses got hijacked :)).

But since there is literally no meta and no fanfic culture( besides self-inserts) in that fandom and on tumblr (and it's a shitty format for being a text-based fan), one of my resolutions has been to move writer!me back to DW/LJ

I have a DW account, from which I will cross-post, but I am a bit concerned that my account might be deleted due to Russia's anti-gay laws.

So, I guess this is a rambly way of saying: I am glad to be back *hugs*, and I am not leaving if I don't have to :)

Forgot to add: Most of my writing will probably be in my new fandoms for now (Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained, if anyone cares), but since two of my OCs look rather suspiciously like the usual suspects already *cough*, it may be of interest to my beloved old fandom crowd...maybe? (Please?*puppy eyes*)

And please forgive the rambling comments: I am just so overjoyed to be able to write proper comments again that I am probably going a bit overboard here...sorry :)

I've been holding on to your post until my stomach stopped churning with anxiety. *SIGH* *chants* Life is change, life is change. Control is an illusion. Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so. *breathes*

I haven't spent any time at DW except to read fest works occasionally. Is it easy to use? Can I easily import my LJ there en masse, or must it be done entry by entry? I hate the thought of losing all my comments and conversations here if I deleted my LJ, which I won't.

I think I'll keep posting at LJ and IJ (I think I have one friend left there), but might add DW, especially if everyone I follow goes there. *le sigh* I'm not too fussed about Russia getting control of the servers because anyone trying to ruin my life by exposing my writing will have a hard time making things uncomfortable for me. Mostly IDGAF, and also I don't have much to lose.

New York has snow today. Pretty snow fall. Not a storm, it's just snowing, so that's nice. We got some a couple of days ago, too, but this will stay a bit.

You can do en masse imports. I'd look it up for you if I weren't feeling like shit. It's easily googled. I'm going to keep posting here myself until the place crumbles.

Aw, sounds beautiful! Ours is starting to melt.
