At the urging of [personal profile] premchaia and after [personal profile] davidn had already followed along, I'm on Dreamwidth now! From what I see so far, it's basically The Other LiveJournal, only supposedly with less stupidity on the management side. I guess. All I see at this level so far is that it has a subtly better collection of toys to play with (such as the cross-posting feature that allows me to only have to write this once and have the LiveJournal side covered as well) and the fact that my page is beautiful. (Not that it has to be for anyone else considering DW, of course; Prem's and David's pages are already much more respectable, for example. But you know me. <3)

Anyway, I was going to make this big old thing about whether I should be officially moving or whatever (especially since the Hatoful community at least used to watch my journal for "streaming now" updates before the Tumblr came along) but if the cross-posting feature works, then I guess never mind!

Edit: I've posted and then edited this entry about a bazillion times because I keep noticing tiny little typos and such, and not only did the LJ cross-post successfully go through, but so did all the edits. Awesome.

This is a cross-posted entry that originated from http://kjorteo.dreamwidth.org/333665.html.

The process has been... shockingly smooth, so far! Who knows if I'll stick with it, but I was surprised by just how quickly it was possible to move everything over.

I'm similarly amazed at the complete lack of trouble everything has been. I imported basically everything, and then after it was imported I decided to batch-convert every entry older than Jan. 1, 2012 to Private (because the fresh start made me "man I used to say some dumb things" senses tingle,) then I made that entry and cross-posed it, and edited it a zillion times and the edits carried over as well. Even my comments on older entries and everything have all the same icons back, except in the cases where I changed the icon name/keyword when I reuploaded it. I honestly can't believe that none of that failed in any way.

Really, uploading all my old icons again was the only part of any of that that was even slightly difficult, and that's because I didn't know that icons were an optional part of the importing process. I just assumed they weren't, uploaded them manually (and I obviously have quite the collection, so this was a somewhat laborious task,) then set about importing my entries, and saw the checkbox for icons and thought "... oh."

Also, I noticed that the icon limit is 15 instead of 6 for free users on Dreamwidth, which should help someone like you out a bit. ;) Though it's not particularly relevant to me since I went ahead and paid for my 55 or so anyway.
