Hello all,

When LJ moved their servers to Russia, I wrote a post called How to Move to Dreamwidth and Like It with my accumulated advice and resources on making the switch and a heavy dollop of pep-talk and getting in the right frame of mind. Now with the Terms of Service debacle, it occurred to me that I should share it a little more widely than my circle.

When I wrote the post, I was operating under the assumption that most people would and should move in small stages, so the post is structured to support that. Now, I will admit that my basic advice has shifted to 'abandon ship as soon as possible,' but hopefully people still find it useful : )

As I imagine most of the people who really need this are not (yet) part of this comm, please feel free to share with anyone who you think could benefit.

 Hi guys! 

I'm a maintainer of a small LJ community.  I imported my personal journal ages ago and cross-post these days, but what with the renewed DDoS attacks it seems like a good idea to import the community as well.  However I'll be darned if I can figure out how to do it.  Oddly, I can upload it to my personal journal, but that's not what I'm trying to do!  There must be a way, right?

I apologize in advance if this has already been asked and answered.  I looked through the tags and didn't see it addressed!

I just figured out that DW will let you import content from more than one journal to your account here. It just integrates everything into your existing account, if that's what you want to do.

I had a smaller, secondary account I didn't use much but wanted to archive.  Imported it right in, icons and privacy settings and all, no problem.

The only thing I noticed is that DW doesn't do anything to mark which posts came from which journal, so if you need to track things easily, you'll want to tag your secondary journal posts before you import.  Losing the distinction wasn't a problem for me, fortunately.

I'm not sure if it's possible in LJ to do a mass-edit on tags, as I've never tried it, but it might be worth looking at.  It's just nice to know I didn't need a second journal here to import my second journal from there.
