Dreamwidth stuff

Is there anybody in the world who doesn't have DW codes yet? Need them for fic/vid journals? Pet journals? Sockpuppets? (Dennis, I'm looking at you!) I have four up for grabs, let me know if you're interested.

Also, a DW question: I want to upload a mood theme but when I go here it's wanting me to enter each picture individually. That'd be a few hours I'd never get back. Is there an easier way?

So a silly protocol question but...

...is it considered bad form to subscribe to someone on DW without giving them access to your journal? I only ask because there are certain people whose journals I love to read (folks like [info]astolat who I'm sure is way too busy to bother with my ramblings). So rather than worry myself with the "why haven't they friended me back" thing, is the basic "subscribe" the way to go?

Dreamwidth stuff

Last night I signed up for a DW account now -- I'm "lilithilien", same as everywhere else in the world. I haven't had much time to play with it yet, I need to mess around with the layout so I can bear to ook at it, and I need to figure out what to do with my flists. It took a while for the dust to settle after the IJ move and I expect I'll have some overlap in my reading for awhile. But since I barely have time to read now, I thought I'd set out kinda what I'm doing, and you can hopefully tell me where I can best find you:

  • My preference is of course to read *everybody* on IJ--so if you're on IJ and DW, I'll subscribe to you on DW but filter you off my default.

  • If you're on my IJ list but moving completely to DW, let me know so I can put you on my DW reading filter.

  • If you're on my LJ flist and moving to DW, let me know so I can put you on my DW reading filter.

  • If you're staying at LJ, I'll keep reading you there.

Other than that, I'm a wait-and-see kinda gal. TBH, I can't see how DW will be able to offer more than IJ unless whole fandoms decide to move, like QAF and Snarry did. This takes guts on the part of the community mods--while the huge LJ comms remain the place to go for fandom goodies, it's hard to compete. Although it does help that DW seems to be attracting the BNFs more than IJ did (for good and bad, imho).

That sounds more cynical than it should be. It's just been a few rough days. Headaches need to go away *now*. And I'm still searching for my 8th day of happy.

Oh, but there is this:
