This one went slightly Hettish on me, so I've posted it in the DW Map Room, and this altered image made its way into my vision... something for jantojones who's love of Illya with bruises is so near to my own twisted Kuryakin love affair.
Quite literally some cut and paste going on here along with the bruising.
I think the gist of it became a sense of uncertainty concerning things here on LJ, a divided response to whether or not people would move to DW if things went wonky here. If you'd like to chime in on it please do so in the comments. I think we're probably not done with this discussion as several of our members are now exclusively on DW.
I can't promise that we won't eventually move the majority of our activity over to DW, it all depends on what transpires here. So far we're just a little fish in a big sea, but it only takes one violation of our implied trust in this system to cause concern and possibly action on our part.
More importantly, a lot of people feel violated, regardless of actual incidents of imtrusion. There are several accounts in our membership that are no longer active on LJ, so that tells me that people are ahead of the expected debacle.
We can only hope that it never arrives, but I continue to import the content here to the DW site so that our links and posts will be ours without compromise.
I haven't imported to there lately, but it doesn't get as many entries as Section VII.
You can also find, and join, Reception Desk... this is an information center where you can ask advice on how to get around on DW, find other communities or just have a conversation. It was established during one of our LJ blackouts a few years ago, but it can still function for us if we need to touch base on a topic that isn't a writing issue.
The other mirrored community on DW is the MFU Gallery. That's where artwork related to the show or movie can be posted and reviewed. There has been a pretty impresive amount of art created around those two MFU products, both for studio promotion and individual artistic expression. If you haven't visited the mfu_gallery I hope you'll take a tour.
I'm just wondering how this is all going. I tend to post on DW and copy the link here. Of course I haven't written or posted anything significant lately, so I'm depending on those of you who have to set this on course.
I ask because DW is a valid archive for us, especially since older entries should all be there now even as they are here on LJ, going back to 2012. Are you more satisfied utilizing the secondary outlets?
I suppose it doesn't really matter, but it seems like something we might talk about.
Okay, so this is Section VII on Dreamwidth, and I'm still importing entries from LJ, although I've missed a few days and need to get back to it. seagull2eagle has kindly offered to transfer our banner over to this comm, so that's very cool. It will look more like home I think.
If you're reading here on DW, please let us know. I don't have a picture yet of how this is going, utilizing both platforms, and it would be interesting and helpful to know where the majority of folks are tending to MFU business. If you would just post a comment regarding your preferences.
Obviously this is being generated on DW, but I will post it on LJ as well, in order to get some feedback.
Thanks, carry on...
At present the system over there is a bid backlogged as so many are 'importing' their accounts from LJ to DW, plus there's a lot of new user accounts too. So they're asking everyone to be patient. Understandable, as I'm sure they're aware of the reason why there's a mass exodus from LJ.
Anyway on Dreamwidth, I'm under my other user name of mlaw.
So if you are friends with me here, could you please add me to your 'circle' over on Dreamwidth, if you're already there or, plan to join. A number of you have already added me; thank you for doing so.
I'm not leaving Live Journal unless it becomes impossible to remain here, but I don't want to lose any friends in the process of segueing to Dreamwidth.
I started importing the comms yesterday, and while Section VII has finished except for what came after the request, the Map Room is still in the queue awaiting completion. This is a slow process at times, especially when we have so many entries to catch up to.

I have been updating communities on Dreamwidth, transferring all of our posts and comments to that version of our lives here on LJ. You can access Section 7 by going HERE
I will continue to transfer from other comms we have here on LJ: mfu_map_room ; mfu_gallery
Dreamwidth isn't an exact duplicate of LJ, the environment is different but the concept is intact and the methods of posting and viewing basically the same. If you don't already have an account there, I am going to suggest that you consider opening one. It's a back up, but in times past it has been a necessary one, and may be again if things go wonky. According to their recent newsletter they have experienced a surge of new accounts, many of them Russian in origin. You can read the newsletter HERE
I post there as girlintheglen and ironically my last post there was about a hitch on LJ. LIke I said, we've used it as a back up plan in the past.
You can post questions here in the comments or PM me here at LJ. We'll probably be addressing this periodically.
First of all, the website is Dreamwidth.com
MFU Map Room
Last time we established a spot called Reception Desk. It's where you can ask questions about how to set up your account or whatever else might come to mind. It just seemed like a good idea at the time, we'll see if it's necessary and if it gets any traffic.
