It looks as if, not unexpectedly, the LJ evacuation is continuing apace.

Especially not unexpected, given that the binding version of the new Terms of Service is only available in Russian. And the English translation, while not apparently the binding version, is not exactly encouraging. Even if it's not at all clear where those with paid or permanent accounts sit, given the "this does not apply to paid accounts" bit at the bottom. Which bits don't apply to paid accounts? Who knows. Will we ever find out? Doubtful.

I'll quite likely be deleting my LJ soon, once everything is remigrated over here. DW has been my primary posting home for quite some time anyway, with LJ as a mirror. Looks like it's time to board over that mirror - as any fantasy fan knows, 'things' can look back through mirrors, and sometimes crawl through.

So, yeah, if you're an LJ escapee, feel free to dock your lifepod to the outer hatch, and come on in. We've got some blue milk in the galley, we're working on the passcode for that big locked door in the hold, and everything's shiny.

(That's three different series sorted ...)

Bah. LJ is now being odd, so there are some posts that I can't read/access/reply to. Even when I've already commented on them at least once. They just won't load. Bah. And I don't have access to my Google Calendar, either. Bah. Again.

Given that there's sure to be some muttering on my friends-list about the newly announced sale of LJ to SUP (the company that's been running it in Russia for the last year), I hereby declare this a post on which you can discuss it, should you wish to - left open for linking and debate.

Personally, I think it could be a good thing, to have LJ go back to being run by an LJ-specific company, rather than being viewed mostly as a way to get advertising to people.

Even if I mutter about the description of LJ as "a social networking" product - which would at least explain SixApart's attempts to FaceSpace it.

For more information about the buyout, new communities [ profile] lj_2008 and [ profile] lj_policy have been created - the latter being a discussion board about LJ's policies, I believe with Brad Fitzpatrick on the policy committee again ...

Anyone else finding that polls aren't logging their answers the first time that they're filled in? You click the button, and rather than showing you the results, you just get the radio/check boxes again - but blank, without your selected answers.

(I resisted the urge to do this as a poll, in a spirit of contrariness.)

These questions have been asked on [ profile] feedback, but I thought I'd ask them of my Friends-list to find out what your approaches are:

* Is your Friends list more "the journals you read" or "the people who can see your Friends-only entries"? How do you use your Friends list?

* How do you find the people you add to your Friends list -- interest searches, recommendation, community memberships, something else? How do you decide who to add to your Friends list?

* What sort of "friending policies" do you have in place (even if you don't specifically call them that)? What factors do you take into account before friending or defriending someone?
