 Is it true? I wonder how it's going to work. What will stop me from importing my favorite LJ community even though I'm not a mod? I hope there is a way where only the mods can do this.

So, given the loads of people dropping like flies off of my friendslist on LJ and coming over to DW, I've decided to go ahead and fully invest myself here.

Much as I'd like to just drop-kick LJ completely, I can't, as I've still got a good number of readers over there that I wouldn't want to do without. It sucks, but well, there you have it.

So, who am I?

I'm an artist- I work primarily in leather, doing masks and other accessory bits, but I also do digital artwork. hell, while we're at it, here- have a couple of samples:

Anyways, more importantly by far is what I'm looking for- namely help finding some things, not to mention potentially some new friends.

Like for starters, a good way to solve my problem- is there some decent way to get both Dreamwidth and LJ combined into a single reading page? Including locked/filtered entries I'd normally have access to on each individual page?

Also, I'm used to using Semagic for posting- any good similar client out there for DW?

I have waited a while to get a DW invite code---it's great there are so many folks willing to donate them.

I didn't see this addressed in the "new from LJ" guide, so if someone could explain this to me, I'd appreciate it.

My journal imported fine. The journal overall is set for "suitable for everyone", with the appropriate fic entries marked adult.

I have a small summary before the cut tag. When I view my entries while logged in, the summary before the cut shows up just fine. But if I view the entry anonymously, nothing shows in the entry except an "adult content" warning.

Is there a way on DW to show the summary before the content warning? I always figure someone would like to know that they're actually going to *want* to read the fic before making them jump through hoops to get to it.


I'm here!

I have an LJ account, same name.  It's actually a permanent paid account, so I've been cross-posting to it, from here.  I'm just now trying this import thing.  Not sure how it'll work.  Will I be able to read my friends' journals from LJ on this site or not?  Just curious.  Thanks!

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.
