End of LJ as we know it?

Oh noes!
I just agreed to the new Russian ToS (they popped up when I logged in) because I can't just NOT sign into LJ, but what did I just agree to? I tried to read it all but *head spin*. Did I just sign away my life away or something? Or is all much the same as before? I do have a Dreamwidth account but I can't even imagine transferring everything over there (or firing up a place I'm not at all familiar with (is fandom even active over there?)). *sigh* it's all just too hard. I have history here. It's where my fandom home was/is. And it really is a journal and therefore it holds many amazing memories that I don't want to lose.

A few people have posted more info about it but it's all goes way over my head. I think people are mostly concerned with any slash/NC-17 content, and also something about spam?

I'm not going anywhere, but I have just opened a DW account as a back up, just in case. You can import your LJ journal over which was pretty easy to do, just a few clicks.

But yes, I've seen a lot of people say that they're staying, but taking precautions. I'm not sure what this means for comms though, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Take care, and I'll see if I can find you on DW, I'm trying to back up the flist too! *hugs*

Here's an entry that a few people have re-posted on my flist re. ToS that is very helpful;

Hey hun. Thanks for the link. I'll take a read. I didn't know you could transfer your whole journal in a click or two. I'll have to investigate that as well. x

I'm completely new to DW, but some aspects are very similar to LJ. And yes, you can import your journal over (entries/comments etc) and it was easy (which is saying something for me as I'm not very tech savvy!)

If you do open an account, let me know, I'd love to friend you as I'm trying to get a back up of my flist too, just to be on the safe side! x

I already have an account there (ash48 too) but I haven't been there for YEARS! I have no idea what my password is so I'll have to probably change it.

Oh, I'll see if I can find you!!!x
