Okay, not really. But I went through a few pages to approve my openID, then set up an account with an invite code from lanna_kitty, which took a whole bunch of pages, then I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO FIND FRIENDS, then finally made my way back to the post I was trying to comment on, and then it told me I WAS NOT VALIDATED.

Anyway. I am "mylittleredgirl" over there, but I do not know how to use it, because I am 85 years old and technology changes baffle me! Hahahaha. Also, I don't know how to code mylittleredgirl such that it shows up with a little dreamwidth person. I FEEL UNCOOL.

So, I kind of tried to jump on the bandwagon and fell off and everyone LAUGHED AT ME. *clings to livejournal*

However, now I can comment on people's posts over there that they crosspost to el-jay. SUCCESS.

I'm abydosorphan (I can't figure out the coding either) but I just added you to my circle :-)

Wheeeee! I saw you over there! :)

I just added you. You should get a little notice up in the right hand corner that you have messages in your inbox that I did. Then if you add me back when you go to your "reading page" there I'll be. ("reading page" = "friends page")

(Ha, you thought you could escape me, didn't you!)

Never! You are my sockpuppet in EVERY dimension!!

Though if you are writing speshul sockpuppety things for Dreamwidth Onlee, I might not see them. My corner of the internet requires MOAR ORGANIZATION.

*cheers for you*

This dreamwidth page is mebbe helpful?

The wee dreamwidth person can't be done in LJ, I don't think, unless you cross-post from dreamwidth (which you can set it to do AUTOMAGICALLY).

But, yes, it's shiny, on account of you can import your entire journal and all comments and tags and custom groups and friends and whatnot. *is verrah happeh with dreamwidth*

YUS! Dat DW page wuz very helpful!! I has not figured out how to import frenz! I will have to look for dat.

I like mi LJ, tho!! *clings to it* I have permanent account and evrything! I will have multiple journal personalitiez!
*: sg1: [sam says rawr]spockette on May 7th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
HAI. Multiple journal personalitiez are awesome, ys.

I think I am less attached to LJ on account of them kind of pissing me off a lot lately, and also having to give up mah old name and develop a sekrit identity to hide from a few horrid personz. But on dreamwidth, I can be a vulcan again, instead of having to be toumai. *dances* So, I hid from LJ for aaaages, and then dreamwidth came along and it was like OMGSHINY, so I pounced on it, yus.

Also, on account of it being a code fork, instead of a port, it's had a lot more accessibility stuff built in, which means I can still use it when i am too sore to be using a mouse or keyboard and not be OMGCONFUSED like on eljay.

I have also added you to my circle. I've also given you access, although I currently have no circle of friends only entries.

I found it useful to open up a new window so I could research certain things while keeping the original window open.

Also, DW helps you figure out how to link back to LJ and cross-post, etc., but it isn't a reciprocal thing. I don't think LJ has ever helped its users easily link to other Open Source journals.

I am not posting anything over there at this point anywayz. That will require more knowledge on my part, I think. Also, the prying of my clinging fingers away from my beloved LJ. *CLINGS*

::then it told me I WAS NOT VALIDATED.::

It is not just you!! I think I had this happen to me. I think I'm right in saying, with me it meant I had not confirmed my email address. You should have been sent an email from DW with a link to click on, and doing that confirms your email. Then you should be able to comment ok.

I'm not at all sure if I was just scatterbrained and did not see the email from DW, but at any rate I think there was an option for me to get them to resend it automatically, which I did.

Hoping you may have sorted it all out by now anyway!!

eta, if this was not your problem, ignore all the above except for the "hoping all is well" implication!

I got validated after that! :) I got the email, I just didn't read the fine print. Regardless, there was some "THIS IS TOO HARD! THE INTERNET IS COMPLEX!" flailing in there.

Don't feel bad, I have a DW account and don't know how to make the little dreamwidth person icon happen either. I am lindsaybob over there. I shall add you!

Wheeee!! I will have to do some testing on those little people and how to make them show up, I think.
