Woah, this place is pretty much LJ.
Except it actually loads and the moderators seem pretty awesome about keeping us up to date and actually moderating.
I like it.

I don't think I'm going to completely move to DW, at least not immediately. I still have my comms to mod (inb4 since when have you actually done any modding) and plenty of LJ friends, but honestly... LJ has been failing nonstop since, what, last year? At least that's when I began to really notice it. Even if their current problem is a DDoS attack and not completely their fault, I'm tired of them being unreliable. So I finally got myself a DW. Hi everyone!

So yeah, not completely sure what I'm going to use this journal for. Probably something along the line of public posts. I at least want to use it for something other than coming here to complain when LJ is down. For now, I'll dig up those No.6 summaries (from my LJ notif e-mails, gdi) and post up shorter versions. Because the style I used to write those longer summaries is way too embarrassing to post publicly lol.

Edit: Oh yeah, does anyone have any communities they recommend joining? I have no clue what random fanbases there are on DW.

Hello from [community profile] natsumeyuujinchou -- I was looking at the members' posts & saw this. Welcome to DW!

A caveat: DW is still v. new, & much, much smaller than LJ -- so if you are looking for the same size/level of fannish activity, you might not find it (yet). Though that's really good in some ways -- it's a good opportunity to get involved doing fannish stuff in a space that might be less intimidating (I know I find 1000+ member comms on LJ a bit frightening at times).

You might want to check old posts at [site community profile] dw_community_promo & [community profile] create_my_comm to see what sounds good. Also [community profile] fandomcalendar is useful, & [community profile] animanga_news super super useful!

Hee, I'm trying so hard to resist getting all DW cheer-squad (I know how irksome that can be), but... I do think because this place is so new, there tends to be a lot more of people just saying hi to random people in random places. :)

I kind of like the opportunity to get in & help shape fandom communities from the ground up -- it's hard work sometimes, but fun! I pretty much lurk on most comms on LJ, but here somehow I am modding 3 (even though 1 is essentially dead -- the other two are quite active though!).

Anyway, welcome again! Enjoy!!
