Hello, I just joined this comm in order to find some alternatives to lj.

I've heard rumors the site may be closing and things seem to have dwindled here, particularly since the infamous strikeout.

I'm just hoping lj doesn't go the way of greatestjournal, as I had an account there, which is now lost to the annals of time. :(

I'll keep my journal here as long as the site is up, but I'd like to find another place to back everything up on in case the ship goes down here. All the methods I've read for backing up seem rather complicated. It's upsetting because all the journals I read and posts I've saved in memories will be gone, unless there's a way to save those too?

Thanks for any info.

Hey folks, I'm considering leaving LJ and am currently exploring various options and journal sites. Could anyone give me the background info on why GreatestJournal is not accepting new accounts? Is it worth waiting for them to try it out or should I just search elsewhere? Thanks :)

[If this is inappropriate, please let me know!]

Inksome* is open for business! Need more information? Check out tsfkas, specifically this entry for more.

For the time being, to stem the overflow of new users, the site is invite-only, though you can buy a paid journal [which is preferable to help keep the site going!!]. But even though 1 month paid is only $5, sometimes it's too much. So if you need an invite, post in inksome_invites or ask a friend, but please do consider buying a paid journal or donating to keep the site going. Free journals get 100** icons, access to polls, S2 layouts/styles, and best of all NO ADS. Check out Inksome today!

*For those of you didn't know, Inksome is the site formerly known as Scribblit, a site that was put into works during the so-called "LJ fandom persecution" last year.

**As of June 18, fifty more icons were given to all users. Free accounts now get 150, paid get 300, and Early Contributors have 350.

I just wanted to recommend LostJournal if someone's still wondering where to go from here. I found out about it recently. They use invitation codes but to get started you can go to invite_codes-community to request one.

Also, Steve made a promise that might interest you.

Yeah, I guess that's all I had to say. Just wanted to offer an alternative for users like me who are under 18 and that way can't get to Journalfen.

PS. And no, the abbreviation is not LJ, it's LoJo. :)

 I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a way to make an LJ Smooth Sailing layout compatible with IJ, somehow? (I'm working on moving over there and am having trouble setting up the layout I want.)

Thanks,

Aidan

ETA: Okay, we're back up and running good.

We're experiencing some problems over on JournalFen today, but we're working to get them resolved. The upgrades have gone through, so once this little hiccup is out of the way things should be fully rocking over there.

soleta_nf and I created ljconfl_archive for the purpose of gathering in one place all those links and pieces of information we’ve seen floating around out there. We want to have an archive to act as a single, cohesive and comprehensive resource where users can have this information at their fingertips. Personally, I’ve been running an ongoing series of posts covering the current issue, but I wasted time searching for links to reference what I was talking about. ljconfl_archive will hopefully remedy that problem, not just for me but for everyone needing information for coverage purposes or for essays. I think this could be an important resource for people wanting help in making the decision to leave LJ.

We have done our best to make certain the Archive will remain objective information, free from bias. While the information linked in the Archive may show bias itself, anyone posting to the Archive must refrain from using any biased/subjective language.

We want information on Strikethrough and Boldthrough, of course, but also on past controversies that have occurred in the LiveJournal community, such as the controversy concerning default user pics depicting breastfeeding.

By posting this information, we are inviting everyone with links to information to come join and help us build the Archive into the comprehensive resource everyone needs. Already, we have a timeline of events, a listing of communities dedicated in one way or another to the issues at hand, and other information. One person can only gather so much, however. We need to come together as the LiveJournal community to offer our knowledge and in it, seek the larger truth.
