I know a lot of people are migrating here due to the latest LJ shenanigans. I've tried DW in the past (here's my account for proof!) and... honestly, it's not for me. It's uglier than LJ with smaller circles. It's less fun, more serious business.

Go ahead and friend me (or... add me to the circle? Is that what it's called? IDK), but unless something really chances my mind I can't imagine I'll be using this account very much.

Hey, this is celarania from lj. I'm not sure what's going to go down between lj and dw, but I figure I'll putz around here for a while. It has some of the dynamic of old lj.

Merry Christmas!

Actually, if you read the news post and the comments, I always see a warmth welcome. The owners listen to people and with that, people are so grateful.

If LJ even dares to go with that new design made by that arrogant asshole who says "They'll get used to it" when they go against EVERYTHING you are taught in designing a site, I will move here.

It may seem silly to leave because of that but seeing LJ screw everyone over again and again and this designer being very unprofessional is putting me off to give them any of my money and seeing that I'm in comms, and other comms that use the subject lines, when this designer guy claims "they do not exist."

All of this can be found here. I prefer a place where I know they listen to customers, aren't assheads, and know wtf they're doing.

Of course, your decision to move or not, just wanting to explain why some people are. And if you already know then....here, have a chocolate mint XD

I have friended/circle-added you on both, and am working on backing up my lj flist on dw as much as possible. Am a reader, not a writer, but the layouts don't seem difficult to use for me on dw. Although I don't really care about the pretty as long as it's readable.

YMMV but the seriousness to me seems like better writing in both fic and meta/other fannish/other pieces, and high level of fannish involvement kinda thing. Which is fine by me. I am keeping both anyways.

And yes, fewer people here too. Which won't change unless more ppl join. IMO DW seems like it's more responsive and growing larger and better whereas lj...not so much. So more people + better aesthetics might change in the next year, who knows. Hedging by keeping your acct seems like a no-fail bet.

Happy Holidays/festivus/wintertime!

I'm used to LiveJournal, so I still use that primarily. I'm just on here because it of the current little exodus, and this week they were allowing open registrations. I don't expect my signing up to bear fruit for quite a while yet.
