Dreamwidth

It seems that the latest craze is Dreamwidth.

This is a new fangled blog. It has some limited cross posting options. It requires an invite to create a Dreamwatch account. I don't have an invite, so I do not have and cannot get a Dreamwidth account.

If you move to Dreamwidth, go ahead. Feel free to de-friend me.

You could probably get an invite if you ask around. I'm not even trying. I just haven't the energy to learn a whole new thing. But if LJ goes under or kicks me out, I'd probably try Dreamwidth (I think in future it'll be easier to get an account).

I'm too lazy to move and the people who are moving? Well, learning more about it makes me go no.

Plus, I'm on Twitter, FaceBook, LiveJournal, LinkedIn, identi.ca that I check regularly. I try to check InsaneJournal, Quizilla, MySpace and plurk semi-regularly. Adding other services? I just don't have the TIME even if I wanted to and I don't want to lose my audience.

I'll only go if everyone else does... the pax Americana aspect (which fandom does tend to go every so often) annoys me, as well as the relentness pimping (I admit, I am the world's worst pimpee, it always gets my back up, and fandom tends to do it in the most grating ways...)

Most of the people on my flist who are setting up over there are only using it as a backup, or are crossposting, so I doubt I'll be going anywhere.

That's certainly what I'm doing: backup and regular importing from LJ to DW. It's a bolthole, and it looks as if it'll be a popular one if it's ever needed. I'm be delighted if it's not though as I have a lot of involvement here.

OpenID 2.0
LJ supports OpenID but Dreamwidth does not.

The reverse, surely.

Re: OpenID 2.0
Nope. LJ supports OpenID 2.0 but Dreamwidth does not. Give it a try yourself.

I've raised a bug report.
http://bugs.dwscoalition.org/show_bug.cgi?id=991

Comments by the team:

(Note that LJ will let me bookmark your comment but Dreamwidth cannot. It's not as feature rich. But I'm not raising Bug reports on "nice to have" stuff.)

Re: OpenID 2.0
Huh! I thought that fact that people can use DW with an OpenID account meant it did. Live and learn.

Where's this feature in LJ? I was of the impression that the best you could do was add a post to your memories.

[edit: Sorry, should have mentioned, I'm just a random commenter from Google. Hi.]

Re: OpenID 2.0
I was referring to the "Link" option just below a reply, which lets us zoom in on a particular reply. (like this one. Without it, I could only reference the page that my comments were on. You would then have to scroll down to find it.

Re: OpenID 2.0
If I were to guess at why there's no "Link" option in most styles, it's probably because "Thread" does exactly the same thing as "Link" on LJ, and so one was probably removed. In fact, "Thread" is even better because it keeps the ?style=mine , if you used it. In other words, use the "Thread" link to bookmark.

I'll ask about it, though.

LJ does what I want it to, and I've no time or patience to go moving my two journals anywhere else. So I'll still be here.
