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.
