So, I just moved over here from LJ.
I usually use Dreamwidth for roleplaying purposes, but after the....shall we say....shenanigans that Livejournal has been doing as of late, I decided it was time to pack my things and move.
Please forgive me if my icon phrasing makes you upset, but I'm being as honest as I can with the keywords.
asexual_fandom: This is a community to discuss asexuality and fandom. Does what it says on the tin.
st_trinians: This is a general St. Trinian's community. All things St. Trinian's are welcome.
fem_thoughts: Meta about Women and/or Femslash
remix_tree: Remixing remixes and possibly remixing those
- If you are a Who fan who wants a daily shot of news and reviews and links to fanworks, please subscribe. We're a bit like Who Daily on LJ (although we explicitly try not to tread on their toes - there was a time when I was a back up for Who Daily as well as doing GT and I still have a lot of affection for them).
- If you're a Who fan who does fic, or reviews, or art, or vids, or podcasts, or any other content you want promoting to other Who fans? please request to be added to our watch list - I'd really REALLY love to have more Dreamwidth-hosted content on there.
If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)
I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!
you work! you don't make me nauseous and you don't fuck my head up and you work as a breakthough pain med. my doctor was actually the one to suggest you when I asked for something for breakthrough pain! by all rights you are basically a miracle.
you just... also have a goddamned interaction with two of my other daily meds (concerta, flexeril). FUCKING WHY. >:|
(my doctor's office hasn't got back to the pharmacist yet. but, probably changing the muscle relaxant out and living with the risk on the other because hahaha yeah my brain also needs to work.)
Do you need someone to challenge you to do something? In which case, this is for you - look around you, can you find 5 things that are out of place? Pick them up and take them to their correct home (or to a better spot). If 5 is too easy or you feel up to tackling a second (or even third) round, feel free to repeat. If there aren't five things in your current location, can you check out a different space?
Good luck everyone, you can do it! Cheers for everyone *\0/**\0/**\0/**\0/**\0/**\0/*

I sort of miss you? But on the other hand, triptans work again for the first time since I started you (why no one picked up that triptans stop working when combined with you, I have no idea, and I've spent a year being chewed out for only using fiorinal or fioricet because no one on planet earth likes how badly those two rebound) and now I can take my epipen if needed since, you know, I have several anaphylaxis allergies and it's not negotiable. (I cannot believe the pharmacy didn't catch that savella has terrible, horrible side effects with epinephrine, and can only thanks gods I hadn't had to use it while I was on the savella).
Also, even when covered by insurance (which you're not, not really), I kind of need to pay more than I can afford.
So, thank you for the work you did, and you're useful, it's true, but please don't let the door hit you on your way out.
The rest here
Do you want to interact with other iconmakers on Dreamwidth? Want to participate in challenging activities? Then icontalking is for you! icontalking A place for iconmakers to talk about icons and get up-to-date info on iconmaking activities. Join here.
Doctor Who Allsorts is a mini prompt table challenge comm - basically an old-school prompt table comm, but with bite-sized tables (available in sets of 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, & 20 prompts) and a flexible approach to claiming. All corners of the Doctor Who universe are welcome (Old, New, EU, Spin-offs etc.) & fills may be any kind of fanwork. See the comm for more details!
Somebody linked this in the dw_news post so I thought that I'd share my problems, hahah. Don't feel like you're obligated to read both sections unless you want to though!
( Rant about anti-medication people. ) I'm sure this post is worthy of a special "rant: x" tag regarding whiny people but I'm not sure what wording the comm would prefer. I'm also not sure if I should tag meds if I'm simply listing what I'm taking and don't have any complaints about them, hahah. Let me know and I'll tag accordingly. o7 (salute emote)
Before we get into all the things I have to cover, though: Given the reasons most people are citing for not wanting to agree to LiveJournal's new ToS, I'd like to take a moment and ask: if you're able to (and only if you're able!), please consider donating to the Russian LGBT Network/Российская ЛГБТ-сеть. They not only do excellent work across the Russian Federation, but are currently mobilizing to help evacuate LGBT people in Chechnya who are in danger of detention or death. (EDIT: If you're outside Russia, you can donate through All Out; the Russian LGBT Network website won't accept donations from outside Russia.)
To our friends in Russia who are LGBT and those who are against the mistreatment of anyone because of their sexual orientation: We stand with you. Please stay safe above all else, but if it would be safe for you to post that link, the LGBT Network is asking that as many people as possible publicly share the information that the LGBT Network is ready to help. (They also ask that you do not contact people in Chechnya directly to let them know, as there are reports the authorities are searching people's phones and computers for evidence of sexual orientation.)
The rest of this post is primarily to give y'all new folks a brief orientation (or as brief as I am ever capable of; no one has ever called me concise) to help you settle in, although I hope at least some of it will be useful (or at least interesting!) to those of you who have been with us for a while. Come with me as we discuss Dreamwidth's history, a bit of what (we think) makes us special, the answers to a few common questions about how we roll, and a few useful tips that may help you with the transition.
( Dreamwidth 101! )
Whew! That was a lot to throw at y'all at once, I know. (Yes, I always am this longwinded. And I always use this many parentheses.) Everybody who's been here for a while: thank you for your patience as I got our new arrivals up to speed! We'll be back in a few weeks with a code push and a bunch of new features and fixes, so the next news post should be more broadly applicable.
In the meantime, let's have a welcome party in the comments:
* If you're looking for new people to subscribe to you, leave a comment with some basic info about your journal and what you tend to write about! Then everybody can browse around and meet each other. (There's also 2017revival and addme, both of which are unofficial but bustling lately; holler if you know of any more.)
* If you've been here for a while and have a favorite community that's active, drop a link and a brief description!
* If you're new or you've been here for a while, and you're looking for an active community on a particular topic, leave a comment with what you're looking for and people can recommend you some options. (We've done this a few times before, as "the great community rec-o-matic", and it's never a bad time for another round.)
* If you know of any scripts, resources, extensions, tools, or toys that will help someone make the move, get settled in, or customize their DW experience once they're here, drop a link and a description in the comments. (We can't be responsible for unofficial tools, scripts, extensions, etc, so use at your own risk, but I know there are a bunch of them floating around!)
Finally, a quick note on the importer queue: it's still going, I swear. The jobs finishing now are the ones that were scheduled around 48 hours ago, though, so we really appreciate how patient y'all are being!
As always, if you're having problems with Dreamwidth, Support can help you; for notices of site problems and downtime, check dw_maintenance and the Twitter status account. (We can't do support through Twitter, though! Open a support request instead. Me trying to fit into 140 characters is not a pretty sight.)
Comment notifications may be delayed for an hour or two, due to the high volume of notifications generated after an update is posted to dw_news. This was posted at 5:30AM EDT (see in your time zone). Please don't worry about delayed notifications until at least two hours after that.
