(And then hopefully no more! It takes quite a while to fiddle about and pack up stuff, and spoons too. Also rl was a little busier at the same time.)

1. I have been moving my communities! Some of these are still waiting on import, for various reasons (also the queue is still very long; it's definitely a mass back-up/exodus this time) and so have nothing on them yet, and some of them are more for archival purposes, but most are active or would happily be again, and certainly this mod is around for questions/tagging etc. if anyone else posts:

I moved [livejournal.com profile] dw_allsorts over here in January, and it is all shiny and ready at [community profile] who_allsorts. I won't close the other, but feel free to switch your claim over (or drop your claim and start a new one at Dreamwidth, I won't tell). Also I probably will only add new tables on this side now.

[livejournal.com profile] dw_straybunnies is now fully imported at [community profile] who_straybunnies! (It hasn't been active for a while, but as long as I'm still here, I'll be fine with people posting to it - it is/was a community for donating Doctor Who fanwork ideas (plotbunnies, if you'll forgive the tweeness, but it makes for a handy name) plus regular discussion of plot ideas we'd like to see and occasional challenges to fill some of the donated prompts.)

[livejournal.com profile] dw_guestfest is created now at [community profile] who_guestfest, but I won't import it until this weekend is over, as someone's still trying to write a last fic for this year's fest. Obviously, the ficathon is over for this year, so nothing will be happening there until it runs again.

[livejournal.com profile] house_of_eliott is now in progress to [community profile] house_of_eliott, hopefully before the LJ version entirely crumbles off a cliff. It's very tiny, but it's a general House of Eliott comm. (This is the only one I will be deleting, because it's so very tiny and crumbling and my co-mod has deleted their account, so it's on virtual point of collapse.)

[livejournal.com profile] cakefic is not yet in progress (but will be as soon as HoE finishes) and you'll find it at [community profile] cakefic. It's not exactly very active, I know, but I do mean to finally run a cakeficathon one day (and heaven forfend that cake fic should be lost)! ([personal profile] clocketpatch, shall I make you co-mod again?)

I am also co-mod of [livejournal.com profile] b7friday, which [personal profile] vilakins has imported to [community profile] b7friday and I hope to see if it's possible to revive it over there, as I think quite a lot of the B7 crew are more Dreamwidth based, such as there is in journal-land anyway). [personal profile] vilakins also imported [community profile] b7fic, and already runs [community profile] blakes7 (and foolishly just made me co-mod of both, which is new. Soon, I shall be supreme commander of the Federation and have all the best dresses!)

And I think I really am going to launch Apocabingo soon at [community profile] tic_tac_woe, but more about that anon!

Please feel free to join any of them you like, even the ones that are still slightly works in progress. I do mean to pimp [community profile] who_allsorts and [community profile] b7friday a bit, and of course [community profile] tic_tac_woe once I've firmed up the rules, and we'll see how it goes with the rest.

And, wow, no wonder that's been taking it out of me. *collapses* (Also, if you are not so much on Dreamwidth, or even if you are, and are feeling a little concerned about imported content, claiming your open ID is super-easy and seems to work like magic on assigning those posts and comments to your actual Dreamwidth account (providing you have one, of course) and then that allows you to edit/delete them as with the original.)

2. Also, in order to get me over the transition bump among other things, I've decided to turn off commenting on my crossposts for the next two months (at least). I've been trying to make sure I've granted access to everybody I can think first so you'll still be able to see and comment on flocked entries, but spotting who I've missed is rather like that game where you have a tray of objects and then take one or two away - and I was always rubbish at that game! So if I haven't yet, just point me in your direction at Dreamwidth. I am a terrible turncoat, I know, but I feel very happy about it! I hadn't realised how much worrying about LJ apocalypses was getting me down.

(tl;dr after this entry, you will have to click through on the link to comment, but I have faith in your ability to cope with slight extra clickiness, even if you judge me for it. ;-p)

Ooh, I like the idea of a cakeficathon.

That sounds like a good idea.

Just saw this post on my Network page, and ran straight over to sign up for [community profile] tic_tac_woe.

Can I sign up for a card yet, or do you want people waiting until you've got everything up and running smoothly?

Apocalypses (apocalii?) are my absolutely favourite thing to write.

I'll comment so I don't forget (and I get to be first!), but I'm happy waiting!

No worries at all.

And if you ever need someone to help out, just holler!

Friends are always happily welcomed!

You actually inspired me to set up a Bingo community of my own as well (for the Mag7 TV series). I'm only now realising how flipping complicated it is!

And I don't make offers I don't mean :)

Where in the UK are you?

I'm just wondering how you manage with getting a paid account on DW, or if you're going to stick with a free account, because an email I received from DW today was explaining that they can only accept US credit credits?

I'm worn out just reading your post! I'm glad I imported the bulk of my comms in January now.

I'd be interested in a cakefic fest:)

More comms! Thank you, I keep meaning to join more stuff over here. B7 places are good places to start from.

I was so surprised about the claiming open ID thing-- not only did it nab my current LJ handle, but it also got the comments made under two name changes ago despite me ticking the box on LJ that I didn't want them connected (at the time). Smoooooth like buttah.

1. Mod away. And if you want my help in running a cakefest I would be more than happy to comply. Also, thank you for importing and linking all of these communities

Oh, wow, so many comms! I'm taking [livejournal.com profile] comicstore_news over as an archive but the import is running slooooow.

And if you can experimentally turn off commenting at LJ, I think I can too.

I don't think it's mean - I think it's awesome. Every morning when I read the paper and there's more news from Chechnya, I feel very low about still having comments on at LJ.
