[identity profile] leviathan0999.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] wonderfulness
As long as LJ has had the [livejournal.com profile] i_spy_fandom community, there's been a community on Dreamwidth, as well: Wonderfulness.

For that whole time, Wonderfulness has stood as an empty shell, form without content.

Over the past couple of weeks, in response to a series of deeply customer-unfriendly actions on the part of LiveJournal, there has been a great deal of fannish movement toward Dreamwidth. One result of this has been that Dreamwidth, which has always allowed individual accounts to import content from LiveJournal accounts, has added the functionality of being able to import Communities, as well.

So, as owner and founder of the LJ [livejournal.com profile] i_spy_fandom community and the DW Wonderfulness community, I've finally been able to do what both communities were intended for from the beginning: All content from [livejournal.com profile] i_spy_fandom is now mirrored at Wonderfulness on Dreamwidth.

It's important to be aware: YOU HAVE COMPLETE CONTOL OVER YOUR CONTENT!

The way Dreamwidth handles content imports from LJ is to create OpenID accounts, consisting of "USERNAME@livejournal.com" with your LJ password as the password. If, for some reason, you want your posts on [livejournal.com profile] wonderfulness to be exclusive to LiveJournal, you can delete it from Wonderfulness with those credentials. I hope you won't. I want these communities to be true sisters, where each stands in for the other. But, it's your content, it's your decision. Mine will always be available on both.

(I love the font size at DW! :-))

I'm still a LJ fan, but I agree, it really would be nice if both communities were true sisters! And (in this case) I don't mind to be mirrored. I'm curious how it works.

I like the idea that our I Spy fandom spreads around the world *g*, so it's not at all a problem for me, if my postings appear in both communities.

Did I understand it right that my posting in LJ it will automatically appear in Dreamwidth and I have nothing else to do about it?

My second question: I often read people complaining about LJ. Maybe I'm not active enough to judge it, but I don't have much problems with postings and commenting (erm... I don't like html, but that's another thing...). I even got used to the famous LJ-cut *g*.

The other I Spy community some of us know is in Yahoo. It's great to have it, but to my opinion the handling in LJ is easier than in yahoo. LJ is more flexible, and yahoo sometimes reminds me a little bit of DOS *g*.

As someone who is a DW user, I want to thank you for deciding to mirror content. I appreciate it very much. Thanks!
