[tech] LJ vs DW and Sims Update  
LJ vs DW

There's another big move of people from LJ to Dreamwidth. I won't be deleting my LJ account (carlamlee is a permanent account, and I have not ever regretted buying it when I did; I've been on LJ since 2001), but I do have a DW account as well (as you can probably tell since I crosspost, but I wanted to make it very clear). You can find me on DW as [dreamwidth.org profile] seeksadventure, and going forward, I will post everything there that I would have posted here. (In recent years, the only thing I haven't cross-posted were the Sims legacy posts, because of some complications with the picture hosting, but I will be cross-posting those as well going forward.)

What I am doing is adding people on DW as they move, and unsubscribing from LJ anyone who I've followed on DW. I'm also debating about whether I will cross-post any locked posts going forward; I don't want to stop, because some of you remain on LJ, and you are important to me.

Sims Update

Speaking of the Sims, as I tried to find my place in the Chaos legacy again, my Sims games crashed. And kept crashing, no matter what custom content I removed or what caches I emptied. So I completely wiped them and reinstalled the game and all the expansion packs I have. Theoretically, I will be able to continue to access the Chaos legacy file, but that has so far not actually worked, but I will keep trying. In the meantime, I have started a shorter legacy to get back into the swing of writing them, and I won't play ahead of where I'm writing, so there will actually be heir polls and the like. First part of that will be coming soon.

I added you on DW, in case you're going to start crossposting the legacies. Do you also have the issue on DW that some pictures hosted on Imgur are blown up to about three times their original size? I hate it, and I don't know how to fix it, apart from manually editing the links to a smaller display size. x(

I have a DW, but I don't use it. We may be friends there, but I would appreciate you not deleting me here. :)

Of course I won't!

That's not the exact issue I had, because I don't use Imgur, but similar, and it kept failing during crossposting, and some other stuff too. I'm going to host pictures offsite (for both LJ and DW), and I think that will work better. (I have space on my own webhost, so I'm building a gallery there for now.)

I, too, have a DW account but I do not use it beyond backing up entries from here. Please do not delete me from your friends list.
