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.

Agree with madebyme, if you have an account there it's extremely easy to back up your content. Right now the completion for the import process is slow because people are doing it in droves, but even so I completed one overnight.

While over time DW no longer works exactly like LJ it essentially functions the same way, minus the photo hosting. And fandom is fairly quiet there, though it really depends on who you follow and what communities you participate in. Fandom's been getting pretty quiet on LJ too, so it's mostly a matter of people actively choosing to crosspost to both places rather than only here (which can also be done simply with the ticky of a box).

Sorry, amending this to add that they do now have photo hosting, which has a small free amount for all users and then will offer more for paid users:

Thank you for the info. I think I'll try to import my LJ to DW for back up - though a lot of my old motel posts rely on photos hosted on LJ. I'll see what happens. :)
