Idk what I think about this whole ~Dreamwidth~ thing...I hadn't heard about it at all until this morning, although apparently in the "right circles" it's been being discussed for a while. If I was able to sign up for an account and poke around, I'd probably have a stronger opinion, but...not yet, anyway. The whole thing pings me kind of funny. Whatev...I don't anticipate moving, though I might once I give the system a whirl, who knows? Maybe I'm just not a wild new frontier kind of person; I'm not unhappy with eljay, in any case. A lot of the features sound neat, but right now, it's not even an option for me. I'll probably dick around with it when they open up accounts, but I have no interest in going back to 6 (or for that matter, 75) userpics (I AM SO SHALLOW, I KNOW) at any point in the forseeable future. Maybe I'll back shit up there? Or put fic there, since it has larger limits. IDK, all will be revealed in the launch I guess? Unless someone wants to shoot me an invite code, but I'm sure most people don't want to waste them on a cranky old cynic like me XD

You can go through stuff via your OpenID, which you don't have to sign up for because you already have an lj, just sign into the OpenID option with your lj name, and you can set up a reading list of your friends that are moving there, see if you like the place, etc. To get an account you can post to there you either need to get an invite code from someone already over there, or buy a paid account when they open to the public on (I think) April 30.

Yeah, I'm in the OpenID, but without posting/importing I have no real idea of how the system works, and I'm definitely not paying for an account of something I don't really understand. If invite codes come my way, I'll probably test it out, but I wouldn't want to use a code before someone who's actually passionate/really wants to switch when I don't intend to

Yeahhh, idk, I remember when everything was all LJ IS DYING BRB GOING TO INSANEJOURNAL except...no one did. I like my paid account, and I don't rly have any issues with the site (except having to pay to get rid of ugly ads, but I'd do it anyway for the icons XD)

I feel very 'eh' about it. I mean, I have an insanejournal, which I don't have to pay for and has way more than 6 userpics if my head eventually explodes for lack of icons here. I think I'll be okay without a Dreamwidth account unless, like, ALL OF FANDOM MIGRATES.

BICH AH CUCHOO.

Yeah, I guess I just don't see the point? But, hey, if someone wants to give me an invite code so I can have a status symbol too, I am THERE. ROTFL

Lol yeah, it makes me sound like a bitch, but the whole ~invite code~ thing, while sensible? Just smacks of elitism to me, especially with all the talk about how we need the BNFs~ to switch over. idk man

UM, YES. Exactly. It's like..."And it's different from Livejournal...because you pay for it. And only the cool kids can get in. Huh."

ALSO the whole "It's something I can believe in" thing kind of bugs me. Maybe I'm just a cynic but...why do I have to ~*~*~believe~*~*~* in my blogging site?

I hadn't heard that. Why can't you believe in a site that's not for pay? :?

I think it's more the "it's former lj staff thinking about what lj ~could~ be, blah blah, no ads, blah, user friendly, blah" Idk, lj has always been pretty user friendly for me

Yeah, gotta say. I think the icons are absurdly low for non-paying people who don't want ads in their journals (read:me) but other than that I don't mind it.

Yeah, there's always stuff that could be improved, but...Dreamwidth is only offering free users 6 icons. Soooo, no real change, yeah?

...oh yeah, so staying where I am. ROTFL. Again, unless I actually find an incentive to leave. So far? Not convinced.

I don't know, it's kind of tempting? But I have severe doubts about how possible it is for fandom to migrate to another place, anyway, so. Staying, for the foreseeable future! Unless, you know, fandom in it's entirity does move. Which is unlikely.

Yeah, I don't think fandom as a whole is going anywhere, and I certainly wouldn't leave until my paid account time here runs out :P
