Oy, LJ...  
I finally imported my entire LJ to Dreamwidth... I have a feeling things are about to go down the drain for LJ, so I need to become as friendly as possible with DW as soon as possible... But there are things about DW which annoy me to no end (like I can't even make the stupid toolbar in rich text editor appear in Chrome... or can't find the options I'm looking for...). I know it's mostly a matter of getting used to it but the whole thing is just MEH...

I want to make the migration smooth, so it's gonna take me a while, but my goal is to slowly drift away from LJ until we are all happily settled in our new DW home and only vaguely remember that old LJ place :P. So, for starters, I'm not sure how many of you actually have a DW account. Recreating the flist on DW sounds like a good starting point, so please, either friend me on DW or comment here so we can find each other over there :D

I think my next step will be migrating my journal style (... but that needs to happen when I have some free time. And I will still probably end up running to[personal profile] elrhiarhodan or[personal profile] angelita26 for help :P

And this is my first crosspost from DW \o/

I'm so annoyed by this LJ mess... This was like the fifty-first thing yesterday when I'm already dealing with the other fifty on my plate. Thanks a lot, LJ/Russia.
I have a DW account, but with some minor exceptions I've never really used it much. Today, I finally imported it all to DW. Most of my posts got through well, but in a couple of them, the images/vids don't work. Yay. Not.
I'll probably fix the stuff in a few weeks/months when I have the time. For now, I'll most likely continue using LJ and crosspost. I really don't have the time or energy to deal with this now.
This sucks :(

{{{hugs}}} I understand completely... we really didn't need this shit... but, like you, at least it was enough motivation to finally import the stuff to DW... I have crossposted 2-3 things yesterday, it went fine, I'm loving the option to simply reply to comment emails... I haven't tried posting anything from email yet but it's on my list... I'm beginning to think that most things that annoy me in DW can be avoided by using some of their alternative posting options :P
