So, I can has a Dreamwidth! I'm liking the design and general atmosphere of this place, so I hope to stick around. This is [ profile] shorelle on Livejournal, by the way, and as strange as it feels to part with a username of over six years, I also felt like a fresh start. Let's see if I'll grow into this, or come crawling back (oh Asmodean, crazy teenage fictional loves never die away...)

Anyway, this journal is friends-only, but I'm always happy to make new friends so do wave and let me know who you are! :D

*waves* You confused me for a minute there, I have [ profile] penumbra on my lj flist so I thought you were her.

Oh, and rather using the DW username code/link for shorelle, if you use <*user name="shorelle" site=""> minus the asterisk, then it'll link back to your LJ account. Just an fyi.

Haha, I just imagine it'll confuse me for a while, and the coincidence rather amuses me. Small online world, that.

And remembering there's slightly different codes, and all the little tweaks, takes a little while to get used to don't worry! :P If you weren't aware that you can make your tags hierarchical (mine lj tag format automatically imported with hierarchies whee, which was nice and lucky), for instance, that is a cool but tiny tweak that you don't especially need to think about. The inter-platform operability bits take a bit more retraining of the auto-pilot though.

Oh they are, they are. See? It works if you go blahblah: blahblah, which I already happened to be doing on LJ by chance. So, like, my tag on lj would be fandom: battlestar galactica. And here on my tag list it is split and sorted and neat and easy to read and just... love. *pets tag list*

And you don't have enough icons? Oh, right, I'm guessing you have the lower level of paid account? Goodness, that's going to take some getting used to, remembering that people with paid accounts might not still have all the same features. I know they've fiddled with the importer since I last used it, but I believe the basic options are the same. In which case you can choose whether or not to import your icons, and then rerun the importer with just your icons, etc. at a later date, or vice versa. There was a bug before where if you had more icons on LJ than spaces on DW than your icons wouldn't import properly/at all, but I have no idea if they've fixed that yet. It quite possible was on the list of things to be fixed before open beta, but I really can't remember for sure. If it has been fixed, it should take your first 75 icons and ignore the remainder though, I think that was the plan.

I know if you imported your entries and then went back to import your icons separately then none of your imported entries would have non-default icons. I... don't know if they were going to fix that/fix it anytime soon.

Waaaah, does this mean you're moving here forever?!! I've just started to have a fiddle around, and I must admit that I do like certain aspects of DW... However, the concept of LJ has become so familiar that I don't think I'll be comfortable with getting over it... *is pathetic when it comes to dealing with change* T_T But it looks like you're settling in so nicely, and I kinda want to do the same thing, but... oooh, the life-changing decisions!!

Haro! It's [ profile] sinistrous. Your username is very pretty. *stalks*

Hhmmm Desireeeee, I can see your posts on my livejournal friends page but when I click through it says the dreamwidth page is forbidden (i.e. I don't have permission to access). *sniffs* - which means I'll never be able to comment on your posts!!

[identity profile] 2009-09-03 07:00 pm (UTC)(link)
That would be great. Looks like I may need one 'just in case'. Though I think you are the only one I follow here haha. I initially avoided the move cos I barely have time to check my livejournal let alone try to follow another platform. How is the dreamwidth community? What kinds of things can you find here that's not at LJ? Or is pretty much the same?

[identity profile] 2009-09-04 09:28 am (UTC)(link)
My gmail account would be best. Do you have it?
