(Please note that with some time of waiting in the dreamwidth queue the entire community including all comments and settings can be moved to dreamwidth.)

Poll #1805782 Move to dreamwidth or stay on lj?
This poll is closed.

As for so many other memes recently, it's time for us to decide now, too. Do we want to move the meme over to dreamwidth or stay on lj?

move to dreamwidth
stay on lj

I'd also like to say, for those who don't know yet that dreamwidth is going invite code free til the end of the year. However, you can also post without having an account here.

The poll will close January 7th.

I vote that we move and do it as soon as possible. Dreamwidth is allowing people to sign up for free accounts without an invite code until the end of the year. If we wait until the middle of January, we might not have that opportunity anymore. The invite code system is what appears to be deterring people the most from moving. That, and fear that no one else will move with them. If we could all agree to get out of here now, neither of those would be an issue.

I've already imported my personal LJ, and it was really easy to do. For those of you still worried about losing contact with your LJ-only friends, DW has a feature that allows you to automatically crosspost your content to LJ. Besides, as it has been pointed out before, you don't need an account to post anonymously. Are people really that lazy that can't simply update their bookmarks? And the DW post/comment format is essentially the same as what LJ was before the change, so it's not like there's gonna be a bunch of confusing new doodads to adjust to. It'll be the same shit, but with less redonkulous updates.

You do have a point there. Though I think the whole thing for moving comms isn't going to be set up til tomorrow or so? Or so I've heard. I've imported my rp journal and my personal one will soon follow.

I just didn't want to suddenly jump this whole thing on everyone because I was like yeah, it's Christmas, a lot of people probably won't be online. But reading opinions now, and following what I'm seeing all over lj, I might soon have to revise my post. :/

Oh, no, that's completely understandable, and I'm glad that you're considerate of everyone's feelings and opinions about it. I trust you to make the right choice for the community.

I just read through the update post over there, and what we're looking at is might take longer to do than we thought, but it shouldn't be too much of an issue. They're experiencing an importing queue overload thanks to LJ's sudden douchey update, so they'll be putting a (temporary) restriction on community imports to paid accounts only until they can get their queue a little more caught up, and there will be a (temporary) restriction on importing comments (but not entries) from communities with over 100,000 comments, but I don't think we're quite that massive yet, so that shouldn't be a problem. Keyword in all this is temporary. So, it might take a little bit longer than we'd hoped, but it's still doable within a reasonable amount of time.
