[identity profile] esteefee.livejournal.com posting in [community profile] sga_saturday
All: I'm planning to back up the contents of [livejournal.com profile] sga_saturday to a community of the same name on Dreamwidth to preserve the contents of our community in the event that something should happen (*cough* censorship) due to the illegality of some of our works under the current laws of Russia (in June 2013, a federal law criminalizing the distribution of materials among minors in support of "non-traditional" sexual relationships, was enacted as an amendment to an existing child protection law). Seeing as the LJ servers have recently been moved there, this is a real concern.

Please let me know if you are a contributor to this community and have any concerns about having your content backed up to DW.

I'll give it a week before I proceed.

No issues at all - but I'd love it if the community maybe did a new challenge every once in a while once we're settled in? :)

Heh. I just redid my back-up of Sentinel Thursday to DW, so purely as a reader of this comm I am inclined to think think this a good idea.

Yeah. Once you've done an import DW keeps a record of it, and you can go in and redo as needed. I'd been a bit slack about my backup, so the current fuss was a good reminder and it went smoothly enough once I figured out a couple of settings. I suspect you're more tech savvy than me, so you should find it a doddle.

I've no content on the comm but I wanted to let you know how glad I am that you made this decision. Really, really glad!

Now I hope that other comm-admins get the same idea - storyfinder, genrefinder, the rec-comms ...

Having these and other comms possibly disappear one day without warning would feel like a fandom-catastrophe to me. :-(

Um, sorry for raining on your parade but the content would still be gone. All the old links (especially before the AO3 existed) will be broken/dead ends should LJ/the accounts ever go away...

A lot of the old links are already broken, what with personal websites and LJs disappearing and content being moved to AO3. What matters to these comms--genrefinders and storyfinders--are the questions and answers. Anyone reading back through can do a simple search to find the current home of the fic in question, if it's still on the Internet. If not, a new post asking to share the fic is easy enough.

We're resourceful people; nothing is truly lost if we have just a clue to find it.

I came here to say... well, everything that patk already wrote, actually. It would break my heart to lose the years of creativity & love & joy & growth that LJ holds, both in individual journals & in communities. Thank you for being proactive with this one! <3

To be honest, I'm not happy with my content from this community going over to DW. If I want it at DW, I'm posting/commenting there.

I realize that I'm in the minority (and people won't care) and you'll still import it over there (I loathe the fact that they made it possible to import communities) but if there is a way to leave my content out of it, please do so.

Thank you.

Um, moving all the content to DW is not moving the comm to DW? What is it then? *scratches head*

Oh, I have a fic here. You just never found it necessary to create a tag for me. *shrugs*

And yes, I mainly mean my comments here. I know that OpenID gives me somewhat control over them but that still doesn't change the fact that my fic and comments show up on a platform where I don't want them to be.

Why should I go to a platform I don't like/am uncomfortable with (and to be clear, since the move I'm uncomfortable on LJ too), create an open ID with them/claim my open ID there and delete my stuff? It's your job as a mod to either not import/transfer such content or delete it when it's not possible to not import/transfer it. Especially when it's pointed out to you. That's the job of a mod.

Woha, I'm stepping away from this.

Don't worry. Everything has been deleted. Comments in this post will be deleted tomorrow or so.
