|04:35 am - I'm reviving my fiction LiveJournal|
After the fiasco of having more than half the posts in my InsaneJournal lose all their comments and all but ONE story lose all the squee that had been posted, I've decided to start using my fiction LiveJournal theentwyfe again.
I wish now I'd coughed up the cash for that to be permanent, but at the time the sale occurred I'd wibbled and instead bought an InsaneJournal permanent account, which right now looks like a complete waste of cash, given the repeated problems with the site. The only good thing there was having 300 iconses to play with, but if they sell permanent accounts here again, I'll get lots more icons to play with then. I can be patient . . .
So expect to see me reposting my ficcage there, including the gen stories that were originally housed at here, just because I'd like to have all my stories in one place. I haven't decided yet if I'll have the gen stories be public or if I'll f-lock them too. I'm undecided as well as to whether any new gen-fic I write will be posted in this LJ or not.
I also haven't decided yet if I'll abandon my IJ or not. There are a few IJ fests I'd said I would write things for and I'd rather not reneg on those tales. There are also a few writers who now post either mainly or exclusively to InsaneJournal, so I'll likely keep using it, at least for commenting, since I paid for the damn thing already and I'd like to get SOME use out of it. I also haven't decided if new works will be posted at theentwyfe only (where frankly they have a wider potential audience) or if I will cross-post them to my IJ.
Decisions, decisions, decisions . . .
Current Music: "Reborn" by Avalon Rising
I've read about comment rot being a problem at IJ as it was a severe problem at GJ. Apparently, though, it has also happened in previous builds of LJ, and I'm crossing my fingers that, as Squeaky gets his influx of new users and money, he'll spend more time on developing the next build of IJ. And that's the extent of what I know about it, but anyway. *hug*
~~ appreciates the hug ~~
Well I've been seeing more and more complaints about it, including several folks mentioning it in the IJ announcements community, where it just gets glossed over. A code update has been talked about for more than half a year that I know of, yet nothing sems to be getting done about it. If there are no comments that stay around, for me, there's little point in keeping the thing, since I like to read comments to stories and the discussions that can take place in comments are a lot of the fun of having an online journal. I like to go back to old entries sometimes and re-read the discussions there and I sometimes reference old comments in newer comments or posts -- if they're gone, then there's nothing to reference anymore.
Your saying it was a bad problem at GJ makes me less than hopeful this situation will clear up anytime in the near future, frankly -- and it sounds like it will likely get worse rather than better.
I hope you'll decide to friend theentwyfe
, since I plan on releasing more Fenrir-fic there in the near future, as well as other tales (tails?) from the Potterverse.
I definitely will friend the other journal! And I don't know, I hope he does get the comments fixed...but I have permanent accounts both at LJ and IJ, so I'll be covered either way, I hope! ^_^

I'd probably crosspost, in order to gain the widest possible audience.
That's what I will most likely do. (At least for now.)
