Flist Feed

I have- I think- successfully set up my LJ flist as a feed on DW, but we'll have to see if it actually works or not!

Update: nope, not working :(

On LJ my "login cookie" keeps disappearing whenever I try to make a comment.  Is that happening to anyone else?

I'm still figuring out certain aspects of DW, but as a platform I like it very much and I plan to try to use it more regularly.

I'm not going to delete my LJ (assuming that LJ doesn't delete me and none of the other things people are worried about come to pass) but I do plan to slowly transition to DW- especially once I figure out how to read my LJ flist there in addition to crossposting!  (I gather it can be done, the instructions just looked so technical that I've put it off a few times already.) 

I promise to keep up with you all as best I can, whatever happens!

Okay, then

Well, LJ's slightly creepy new TOS was the reminder I needed to back up on DW again. 

I'm glad that I did it, but the comments didn't seem to import this time.  Is anyone else having that problem? 

Junk mail?

My email has rather randomly decided that all emails from LJ are junk.

I can find them quite easily in the junk folder, so it's not that big of a problem, I just don't understand why it suddenly happened.

Possibly this is obvious, but does anyone know where the actual LJ login page is?

I've always used the little login bubble at the top of my page, which my newly updated Firefox keeps telling me isn't secure.  I always new it probably wasn't, but I guess now is as good a time as any to figure out what I'm actually supposed to be doing.

So I'm sure the new "quick comments" feature has it's charms- it's probably convenient and all- but it's like they genuinely want this site to look just like tumblr or facebook.

I feel that my doubts about the "like" button have been borne out.  It's not really a very good way to communicate "Hey I've seen your post but I don't really have anything to in particular to say" when the person whose post you're liking has no idea who you are in the first place.

Does anyone know if you can import new entries to dreamwidth after you've imported your journal already?

I really wish livejournal cross-posted to dreamwidth, because posting here was much easier for me while I was doing the meme (compared to posting on dreamwidth and cross-posting here), and now I'm really behind.
potentiality_26: (stargate)
I'm still figuring it out- but feel free to come and see me there!

(Hopefully this will crosspost effectively!)

Happy New Year everyone!  Let's hope it's a good one!

I'll be starting the questions meme pretty soon, and I'm still taking questions here if anyone is interested.

Re: the current LJ panic, it seems like a lot of fuss over nothing to me.  Like I'm not really sure why people think Russia takes such a keen interest in their LJ posts, but if Russia does they've already been reading them.  If I didn't post all my fanfiction entirely on AO3 I might be more worried about the move, but since I don't... *shrugs*

Anyway, I may set up a backup dreamwidth just to be safe, so look out for a post about that.  In fhe meantime, in case the site implodes or something you can still find me on tumblr (I don't follow very many people just to keep my dash managable, but feel free to say hi).

I haven't seen much more than the announcement, but it seems silly that they're all, "We can't wait for your feedback!!!" when I distinctly remember everyone already saying that they didn't think LJ needed likes because Facebook and Tumblr exist, and if we wanted LJ to be just like them we wouldn't still use it.

Like we all know that feel when you don't really have anything to say but you still want to show that you saw the post and are supportive or whatever, but we all also know that having a like/kudo option drastically diminishes communication.

I'm not saying it's a completely pointless feature (and anyone who likes the idea should go on liking it), I'm just saying maybe a site shouldn't undermine the one remaining thing that makes it special (that you basically have to comment on a post if you want interaction with the poster).
potentiality_26: (stargate)
I'm still not recieving notification emails.  I tried validating my email, but it looks like LJ doesn't let you do that if it thinks it's already validated (even though they tell you on their support page that it's something you should try) so I'm not really sure what's going on with that *sigh*

I'll try to do a TV post pretty soon, but for now I want to say that I've watched the first episodes of Designated Survivor and I'm really enjoying it so far.  I think I'll check out Timeless too.

What other new shows should I keep an eye out for?

I'm not getting emails from LJ again.  Is anyone else with Outlook having this problem maybe?

A validation email from LJ finally went through today.  The urge to throttle Microsoft over the whole thing is not gone, but it is dissipating.

So I was one of those people whose email provider decided to summarily block all emails from LJ this week.  I guess the problem has been at least semi-fixed since I can leave and reply to comments again now, but I'm still kind of pissed off about it.

Like why did Microsoft think it was such an A+ idea to just start deleting messages from a website without taking two seconds to check if it was a site their user base might want to still get messages from?  And it would have been one thing if it had changed the settings so the messages went straight to the junk mail folder (at least then we would have had some say in whether we even saw the messages or not) but no.  They just never arrived.


Anyway, I wanted to get another email address that I would have to check regularly like I wanted a hole in the head, so I just kept hoping LJ would get it fixed, and lo they did something right.  The whole situation still aggratvates me, though.

Okay lj

What on God's green earth am I meant to do with this brand new related entries nonsense button you have announced to me is here?

(That's half explosion of criticism and half legitimate curiousity.  Anyone found a use for the feature?  Anyone just overjoyed to be able to do this now?)

On LJ posts, I sometimes embeded links with a little symbol next to them.  They're just like LJ User links (like [livejournal.com profile] potentiality_26), except that instead of the usual LJ symbol it's the AO3 symbol, or one for another website.  Does anyone know how that's achieved?

I'd try to look it up in the FAQ, but as you can see I'm not very good at explaining it and I don't know how I'd even starting looking.

When I try to select an icon for replies on coments, it just reverts back to my default icon.  Annoying.

According to [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon there's a workaround, but as usual with LJ's bugs I'm mainly hoping that it's just going to go away after a while.

potentiality_26: (agents of shield)
LJ, this new tag positioning is legitimately the worst thing ever.  The ads pop up on top of my tags now.  Right on top.  And my comments live way at the bottom of the page now.

I was hoping this was just a hiccup that would go away on it's own.  Turns out I have to actively try to fix it.  Boo.

Suddenly all my tags are on the opposite side of where they used to be.  What gives, LJ?
