Cross-friending entry

If I'm reading everything right, then LJ users who comment using OpenID will become pseudo-accounts on IJ, and be friend-able. Once I friend those accounts, it seems, those LJ users will be able to read my flocked entries via the Friends page of that pseudo-account. You do not need to make an account and password in IJ, just use the OpenID sign-in here.

To receive email replies to OpenID comments: Log in with your OpenID. This should give you a page with a My IJ link. Click that link and choose Edit Your Profile, and enter an email address. Once you validate it, replies to your OpenID comments will be emailed to you just like normal comments. You can also upload icons, and your default icon will appear on your OpenID comments.

So, would anyone who only has an LJ account and still wishes to read my flocked posts, please make an OpenID comment to this or another entry. On the comment form, click the radio-button next to OpenID user and enter your LJ journal url in the window that appears (username.livejournal.com or users.livejournal.com/_username_ in case of underscores). Alternatively, log in via the link above; that will also create a pseudo-account for you.

Hey, too lazy to change journals as yet so hopefully this works. :)

*crossing fingers* I guess we'll see!

I have an insane journal account under the same name, but I don't use it much since hardly anyone I know is here. But I want to stay in touch.

Definitely! I shall track you on LJ and you can track me here.
Dec. 28th, 2007 01:29 am (UTC)
If you don't mind? Thanks!
Dec. 28th, 2007 01:43 am (UTC)
You got it!
Dec. 28th, 2007 02:29 am (UTC)
Test, test. Please add me.
Dec. 28th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
Worked like a charm.

Can you hear me? Can you hear me calling?

Here's hoping this works, cause I don't want to lose you to the internet void!

Re: Can you hear me? Can you hear me calling?

*hearts* I friended your pseudo-account, so hopefully that'll do the trick!

*posts a little*

So what exactly is a "flocked" post? o.O I know about birds and flocks, and I know about flocking a tree... But this kinda leaves me lost.

Re: Commenting

Oh, and btw, IJ.

(Funny how the usernames are almost completely not different at all.)

Re: Commenting

*grins* Added both versions of you.

Flocked is the contraction for friends-locked. Like fpage for friends-page. It's faster to type, anyway.

Re: Commenting

Well, that makes sense.

Internet words can be so wacky. I want a dictionary! :D Like a Californian-to-English dictionary! Only this time, an Journal!Poster-to-English dictionary.

But I bet it'd be really hard to keep updated. Things go in and out of fashion so quickly on the net. One day you're "fantabulous", the next you're "totally radical, my main dude".

Testing my own stuff.

Please add me to the list of your friends so I could read your fics.
Jan. 24th, 2008 05:25 pm (UTC)
I post those unlocked, but I'd be happy to add you.
