I'm curious. How many people that I know (or who have friended me, that's more to the point) are active on here? I have very little urge to crosspost but if the bulk of my current LJ f-list is wandering around in the silence here, I will have to rethink.

Anyone? No one? Three people?

Well, I try to be active here as I am on LJ, but that doesn't say much, I'm afraid.
Anyway, I like this place, so if you'll post here, you know you have at least one friend reading :-)

Here's why I like DW, amongst other things: http://scarlet10.dreamwidth.org/read#entry-38065
That's kind of an answer to the latest ToS change on LJ.....

Me. TBH I'm around here more than I'm on LJ, though I crosspost entries to both places.

Hey! It's always worked for me. Maybe it's something about the servers or a bug.

I read the posts in both, especially now that a few of my f-list buddies are moving over there.

Intend to cross post from here though.

Actually managed to cross-post today. No idea at all why it wouldn't work before. I think we'll get used to it here soon enough.

*hugs* Tia.

I almost forgot about DW until about a month ago. Then made an account with a name I couldn't use on both by mistake.

Now at last I think I have it all sorted.

Looking further in to DW it seems a much better deal for the user. Lets hope that doesn't change if it becomes very popular. Somehow I'll be surprised if it did. Tumblr seems to be top dog for now.

I'm here as well as there, and if people crosspost I comment on DW since I have a paid account and more icons here - and in your case, there's also the issue with being able to copy lines if I want to quote, which I can't do on your LJ stlye. ;) (Not that this is a thing of big importance, of course). When people provide crossposting footers, I often also go to the other site to check comments and chat if I have the time.

"being able to copy lines if I want to quote, which I can't do on your LJ stlye"
yes, an issue I have as well with your LJ theme.
I tries find out the why, and found this:
in a_002.css (which is part of the theme style) there are lines like this for several classes:

And they prevent selection on Mozilla-based browsers.

LOL, no you're not!!! You're my favorite Glory/[fill-in-the-blanks] author. You're also the only one who wrote a horror set in Sil, IIRC.... Or created the Gypsy (a.k.a Gildor).....

See, you're handy. Allow me to keep you around :-)

I checked the customized layout CSS and I cannot find that section of coding in it anywhere.

So I'm wondering if that is baked into the original layout CSS? The coding being behind that particular issue makes utter sense, but I don't understand how to remove it.

The style issue with your journal certainly isn't a real problem for me, and I could always use ?style=mine if I had problems. But I really appreciate your and Red's trials to fix it! *hugs* (I might have been the one pointing it out, too.) Cosmetic issues certainly aren't a reason for me to not go anywhere. But apart from the icon issue I've started to use DW where possible partly to add my bit to bringing it more alive, and partly to show through this how much I appreciate the way it's being run. (Neither of which contains any form of judgement of any other user!) I also don't mind where you comment on my entries. I really like the option to have that line in your footer on LJ (when crossposting from DW) how many comments there are on the other site, although sadly it doesn't work the other way round; but I also always liked how some people's crossposted posts brought people from different journals to interact as well.

As I've bemoaned before, I'm not anywhere much these days. ;) My current issue over here is that I'm signed into another DW account with my browser, so I have to sign out and sign in again to post or comment. But I do love my layout.

I'm re-importing everything since one of the original imports bombed - I actually found my post whining about it :D - and then I'm going to tackle the mess of duplications in my subscription and access lists. If the LJ world moves over, at least I'll be ready!

But it's such a pretty color scheme! *g* Very gentle, kind of soothing, maybe? I like it. I love the simplicity of a lot of the DW layouts, too.

I have still have paid time over at LJ, so I have tons more icons over there. Have to be much more particular here. ;)

I hear you on the signing out and signing in again hassle. And the browser gets so darn confused, lol.

I know Firefox isn't the browser of choice for lots of people for various reasons, but I'm beta-testing a feature since a while which has made my fannish and online life so much more comfortable: it's called containers. You can create as many of these as you want, and cookies are stored in them separately, and if you open a new tab you can do it in any given container and be logged-in wherever you want, all in the same browser window. The only downside is that this feature doesn't sync yet afaik, so I'll have to do this manually, but it's a small price to pay or me for the comfort it gives.

I'm still more on LJ than here, but am cross-posting a bit more. I also occasionally check out my friends' feed here, but so far I was mostly looking at things I'd already seen on LJ (and it didn't help that the feed has a time limit that cuts off relatively quickly). That seems to be changing a bit, though, now.

I'm about too. I am still reading up on the TOS (the russian law that is being referred to) of LJ, but so far I am refusing to sign it. That leaves DW then.. but RL is way too busy.
