Moved all my stuff :P

Well, I made it! I have a feeling I'm going to enjoy my stay here.

I imported my account. It's a little scary... so different from the stuff I just got used to. Anybody know any FFVII groups that are active?

I heard on LJ that Dreamwidth might be making it possible for people with burgeoning accounts and communities to import over here? Some of my friends are a little concerned about the size of their journal and their communities. Is it true that it might be possible soon?

I'm going to play now, my account is so new and shiny :P I need to get used to here :) I need to find the comm list, if there is one. Things seem to be so much more private here. I love it.

Btw, looking for friends! I'm going to write fanfic that is FFVII - centric. Also I'm studying XHTML and CSS to build pages. I kind of got into that suddenly after the Twitbook LJ merger :/ but it looks like it's going to be fun. If you think we'll have something in common add me?

Importing large individual journals shouldn't be a problem -- I think the only one the importer outright stalled at had 40,000 tags! Otherwise, the importer might take a bit longer with large journals but should do it fine; if it doesn't, your friends should open a Support request.

With communities, it's a bit of a tricky issue because the comm owners don't own content which is created by other members, so there are all sorts of copyright issues involved in importing them. But as I understand it, DW are hoping to sort out a way of doing that.

And as mentioned above, Dreamwidth will happily give out "promo" invite codes if the members of a comm want to move over and recreate the comm over here -- just contact them in the Account Payments category in Support:

Go for it! It's public info, and as I understand it, Dreamwidth are really keen on encouraging groups and comms to move over.
