Hah. I just discovered the new Facebook & Twitter integration while I was commenting on someone's LJ, and guess what I did next? That's right, I went to Dreamwidth's Latest Things page to check if this had caused any drama. :D And of course I wasn't disappointed! I don't think they actually did much wrong this time, aside from the fact that posting comments has suddenly become harder for people who use the tab bar or macros to get to the "post comment" button - which I'm sure can be fixed easily.* The privacy issues that people were reporting mostly turned out to be false alarms.

There is one thing that does worry me though: While it has always been possible to manually repost your own comment on someone else's locked post wherever you want (well, duh), I don't think anyone ever actually did that, do you? Not often, anyway. But now we've been given the option to do it with a single click and I bet some will end up doing it accidentally. Way to go, guys, making it incredibly easy for anyone to notify the whole world that LiveJournal user X made a friends-locked post about subject Y!

Man, it's been around six years since I discovered LJ now and things just keep going wrong. There's been so much drama, I wish everyone would finally give up on it and come over to Dreamwidth. It's nice here. If you have a suggestion or complaint, you can be sure that you'll be heard!

I still have a bunch of invite codes to spare if anyone wants them.

*IF they listen to these concerns, that is. If they don't, that would be some fucked up shit.

Wow, Part 2

To quote the comment I just left on a news post,
Option to choose placement of metadata, to either above or below the entry

OMG! It's my suggestion! You actually did this?!?!?! :O

That's it, I'm definitely moving to DW for real now. Eventually I would have done it anyway (who can resist so much awesomesauce), but you just erased my reason for procrastinating on it.
Embarrassingly, I actually threw my hands up in the air upon reading that, haha. Well, what can I say? I had expected my suggestion to be ignored, not just because I'm used to it but also because I really seemed to be the only person who cared about that. So it was quite the surprise.

As soon as I'm awake enough to do things like that (hint: not today), I will start setting up cross-posting options and make this my main internet home. Finally I shall escape the clutches of LiveJournal! Hooray! Well, except I'm still going to read the remains of my flist over there and stay in a few communities until the rest of the world realises how awesome DW is.

I am quite amazed - this is the first site using the LiveJournal code that is actually better than LiveJournal. It makes me want to transfer money to my PayPal account for the first time ever! Now if only I could get all of my friends to come over here ...
