Open account creation until the end of the year
Likely most people know it, but just in case, dw_news announced that account creation is open, that is no invite code needed, until the end of 2011.

If you own LJ comms, I suggest making copies of them on DW for the just in case.

Mad that DW isn't as active as LJ? Try getting your friends to join. Post to dead communities anyway. Some might start doing the same.

Thanks very much for this, Vicky. Your post got held in moderation because it has lots of links, but it should be visible now.

thx for the post.. I've been meaning to import entries but just havent gotten around to it.

with all the holiday baking I have time inbetween cookie batches to do it!

what kinda cookies? :) my market ran out of sugar cookies. I didn't even know what was possible.

I love sugar cookies, but I'm not making those. Peanut butter blossoms (with the hershey kiss in the middle), spiced cardamom cookies, gingerbread snowflakes, molasses spice cookies ... so much yum in the hosue right now!

I bet your house smells so good. It's like when I cook curry, leave the house, come back and it's all BAM in your face.

Do you know if there's any way to get DW communities and Circle members to show up on the pull-down menues in Semagic the way LJ Friends and comms do?

Nope. You could try asking the makers of semagic. They are good about answering comments http://ljwin32-sema.livejournal.com/19791.html#comments

Please note that my “LJ friends on DW” tool is on the URL http://lj-friends-on-dw.filmgold.com/ (the old https://filmgold.com/lj-friends-on-dw/ URL no longer works as my site’s certificate has expired).

I tried the new link and it just gives me a tiny html page that says "It works!" -- is there a new url?

Hmm I think that might be a byproduct of having to migrate my Joyent web hosting with their recent account changes. Will see if I can get it working later this weekend.

thanks, I expect another migration wave as LJ fails to manage change properly, YET AGAIN.

hope someone is still reading this :)

just to be clear, because I am very dense about this sort of thing, can I cross FROM livejournal TO dreamwidth? I know the other way around works and is very easy, but I want to post in LJ and have it show up in dreamwidth. Possible? If so, how? Thanks in advance
