Stalker Service Anouncement (Dreamwidth)

I have an account dreamwidth under the name innerbrat. I have imported some of my stylesheet over there but not got down to the gritty, so it still looks fugly. It is, however, readable for my eyes so I can check friends. If you're staying on LJ - don't worry, so am I, and I have a permanent account so don't plan to leave it.

If you are migrating even slightly, then:

I currently have my laptop's Semagic set up to post to both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth, so you really should only need to friend me in one place. (It also means I'm going to have to go and edit this post when it goes onto DW just to make it make sense). This doesn't cover posts made through other sources, like Delicious Glue, which is my main non-Semagic source of postings right now. If you're on DW and want to follow me but can't stand to live without my Delicious links, there's also innerbrat_feed (a direct feed from this LiveJournal) and deliciousib_feed (my Delicious links only).

Meanwhile I'm probably going to stay mostly over here, and while LJ-Addons can only check one friendspage at a time, I'm going to be following my LJ friendspage, only going to my DW friendspage when I remember. So anything exclusively DW, I can't guarantee I'll catch. Fortunately with the reading vs access friendspage section of DW I can make sure I don't have too much duplication.


The Brat's list of things to do to her Dreamwidth:
  1. create a stylesheet
  2. check crossposting on Delicious Glue
  3. streamline friendspages
  4. Apply LJ-Addons to work on Dreamwidth

Hey, does anyone have that Firefox addon that submits polls into a new tab?

When I get a DW, it'll be lienne. Until then I'm lienne.livejournal.com as OpenID.

I actually have no idea what I'll use my DW for, I just want one because the site is so awesome and I'm certain I'll manage to find a use for it.

Only it's still in my addons box as "will be installed next time Fx restarts".

And has been for two weeks worth of reboots--works fine on the old desktop, but not on SB's laptop. If you get it to work, LMK and I'll uninstall/reinstall.

Re DW, I plan to transfer my main posting over there once it's out of beta (or possibly during open beta), at which point the crossposting will hopefully be exerpts as if it was cut text, etc.

I don't want full duplicate content for reasons explained, but I do need to feed my LJ PR into my new location fairly quickly as DW should be better for SEO once it's ready.

I prefer DW, thus I'll use it as my main place, but I won't be leaving here.

OK, I have matgb_dw for you anyway. So if/when you get a defriending notification on LJ, you'll know why. All that will mean is occasionally I'll miss a friends only post on DW. I can handle that.

If for some reason you wanted to create a feed, that'd be fine with me - I'm not sure why! I think I'm more comfortable posting mental illness stuff on DW, but it would be locked anyway - I just actively don't want my DW account or LJ account associated with each other publically, which is why I was reticent to even reply to said poll; I've gotten harassed some on LJ and for LJ by certain people who have my DW account, so.

I think all of that adds up to: if you want a feed for some reason just don't connect it to my LJ please and if you want the DW-exclusive locked stuff to appear on LJ for ease, I can make you a custom filter for it or something of that ilk, since I don't think locked things get picked up by RSS.

ETA, to specify: a custom filter on LJ. I'm also keeping RP talk to LJ, so if we have overlapping play again ever (I miss you!) that's where it'd be.

Well, I'm subscribed to you and granted you access with DW, so hopefully I'll see your locked posts when I check my fpage, depending how often that is.

And by "different content" I mean "none". I'm just waiting on an invite from a friend to secure my UN, because that was *her* sole reason for getting one as well.

I only realised the other week that my LJ entries page has an add on the right, but this is only there if I am not logged in, so that means people who are not on LJ and check my journal see the add, but I never ever knew it was there as it doesn't show up when I log in!

I am no LJ guru....I can just about post and cut! So why is this so and how can I get rid of it? Hope you are well my lovely! Fancy a visit from a wee Irish gal at some point up North Mat that is? I have wheels that just passed the MOT this week! YAY!!! Innerbrat..I will be making an appearance in London this weekend....it's been 4 months, so should be central Saturday and Sunday! Huggles

Sorry, you can only get rid of ads on your journal for logged out users by paying money. Otherwise with your basic account, you'll only see ads when viewing a Plus account.

If you're at a loose end this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon, you might be able to find me at the Science Museum (try Launchpad). Otherwise gvie me a text if you're out in the evening!

I can't click them all if they're not ticky boxes!

ANYWAY. I plan to mostly ignore my DW unless there really is some kind of mass fandom migration.

I actually have no idea what I'm going to do with my DW yet, but I'll probably flock it unless I decide to post things completely unrelated to my actual life there.

LJ for silly and fannish stuff, DW is going to (supposedly) be more political/LGBT/babyhaving/whatever. Trying that out, anyway.
1st-May-2009 01:09 pm (UTC)
I would greatly appreciate an invite if you still have one to spare.
1st-May-2009 01:18 pm (UTC)
I think I'm going to use my DW as an archive of my fanfic, until I can get my fic Web site up and running again. Apart from that, I have a permanent LJ account, so I'm staying put.

I have no real idea what I will do with dreamwidth posting so pretend I ticked none of the boxes on that question. I'm just going to use it for reading and commenting on dreamwidth only journals at the moment but I haven't even got around to adding people.
