Moving notice

Okay, it's time for me to move my IJ content over to DW.

I will also be moving my posting over to DW.

Alas, the new crossposter doesn't support filters yet and may not for a few months to come. So I won't be crossposting at once.

I'll be more than happy to put any IJ people who want a DW account to read with on my invite code list, to be executed in a bit less than a week!

Any IJ people who don't want to get a DW account can still read my locked and filtered posts over there, of course. All you need is a "reading account" (aka OpenID).

What you do is, you go here and log in with your IJ url (username.insanejournal.com). When you submit that it will bring you to an IJ page asking if you want IJ to confirm your existence. No passwords or any such will be given out, just a confirmation that you're a registered user here. It's easiest if you select "Yes, always", so you don't have to go through this page again.

When you have selected a button, you will be taken back to DW. At this point you need to enter an email, so you can receive replies to your comments! You can also set up a profile and select a style for your journal and load a few user icons to use over there. Basically you can do everything with an OpenID account you can with a free account except post.

When you get your email validation message, validate and you're ready to go.

Subscribe to everyone on DW you want to follow. Lo, you now have a DW reading list.

My favorite approach to these things is to copy the link of your DW fpage/reading list and put it into your links list over here. Then you can easily click over, just like reading an fpage filter. I actually link to all my reading pages (on four services, now) on every service, so I can check any of them from any of the others.

Of course, one of the things cooking at DW is the ability to read your whole flist from LJ or IJ or etc, even the locked posts, on your DW reading list. I will be so geeked when that one comes out. And Squeaky is thinking of maybe switching IJ to run the DW codebase, so you could, hopefully, read fpages from other services right here eventually! Progress is so cool.

I think I'd like an invite, if you had an extra one?

*waves and bows*

...I've been meaning for a while now to ask you if it'd be okay for me to watch this journal from LJ, but I've picked a bad time to come by, it seems. *sheepish* If you still have invites to spare, could I maybe ask for one, too? :)
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:03 pm (UTC)
Most certainly, I shall add you to my list!
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:34 am (UTC)
How does the invite code thing work anyway?
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:06 pm (UTC)
Well, when the site opens for open beta in a week, there will be two ways to make an account: either pay for one (3-50 dollars, depending on the option you choose) or get an invite code for a free account from someone who's already got an account. If you like I can certainly add you to my list.
Apr. 26th, 2009 01:15 pm (UTC)
Yes, thanks.

I'd be interested in an invite as well. I've been keeping an eye on DW mostly because after GreatestJournal died I had to move my backup writing journal to IJ as well, which kind of defeats the purpose of a backup journal. >.>;
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:06 pm (UTC)
You're on my list!
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:07 pm (UTC)
I will need an email address to send you the code at, though.
Apr. 26th, 2009 12:12 pm (UTC)
Thanks!&hearts It'd be awesome if the reading your LJ flist on DW thing works, then I could abandon LJ for real.

My email is evil.kemis@gmail.com . Mind screening this comment so the email address is not available to everyone? I'm a bit paranoid about spam, sorry.^^;

I set up openID from my LJ because I'm better about making sure I stay logged in there. I'm 'therck' there as opposed to 'the_rck.'

Just so you know when I add you over there.

If you end up with an extra invite code over there, I'm interested, but I should be low priority because I don't know how much energy I have for yet another site just now or when that will change.
Apr. 26th, 2009 06:46 pm (UTC)
Cool, I'll look for you there! And I shall put you on the list. It is looking like a pretty energetic place, though, so if you're low on energy, definitely take your time.
Apr. 28th, 2009 12:46 am (UTC)
What user id are you using there? I'll be heading over once it's on open-beta, but probably not before then. ^^
Apr. 28th, 2009 09:10 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm branchandroot over there, too.

Three days to go. Oh, wow, things to get done... *dashes off*
Apr. 28th, 2009 08:01 pm (UTC)
DW~♥ This is going to be so awesome! :D

And I think we've talked about invite codes before, but I could be wrong. *is made of forgetfulness* So if you have an extra, would you mind adding me to the list?
Apr. 28th, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
Yep! You are on the list!

...though, if you have a validated OpenID account over there before Thursday, you might not need one. *winks*
Apr. 29th, 2009 05:25 am (UTC)
Truth be told, the whole OpenID thing somewhat escapes me; I've never had need of it before, so...um, yeah. ^_^;
Apr. 29th, 2009 09:02 am (UTC)
It's the easiest thing ever, promise! Go here (http://www.dreamwidth.org/openid/) and enter takerzmuse.insanejournal.com. On the confirmation page click "yes, always". Then you just go to your account management page, like you would in any other kind of account, and enter your email. When the validation message arrives, click the link. That's it!
Apr. 29th, 2009 04:23 pm (UTC)
Uwah~ thank you! That was super easy. ^.^
