I wish DW wouldn't run so slow right now! :/ It's making my friends not want to join.

I have MANY questions about DW, but here are just a few that I can think of at the moment. Chime in if you know the answer...

1. Is there a client that lets you post outside of the web page?
2. Are there ads here? My blocker is on, so I don't know if I'm missing any. Just curious.
3. How can I look up someone by username? It has a lookup box and doesn't list that as an option! Craziness! I've had to just go directly to my guess as to what the name might be to see if someone has an account.
4. Those of you crossposting, do you mean you've been posting to DW and having it auto-crosspost to LJ? Or vise versa? Or are you doing it manually?

Okay I have to go to work.

2. No ads! That's one of the reasons I signed up here in the first place. It was refreshing.

4. When I've crossposted, it's been from DW to LJ. So far, that's been the easiest to set up. I don't even know how it's done from LJ to somewhere else.

Anyway, I'm glad you're here! It's helping fulfill my desire for connection with my LJ friends :)

If only! Hey, did you work the glitches out of importing your LJ entries to Dreamwidth? I had no trouble importing mine a while back, comments and all, but I dare say I didn't have near as many posts to import as you did. Can you do it in batches, perhaps? Two years at a time?

Yeah, the comment conversations are just as important as the entries!

I'd *thought* it worked in batches but maybe I'm confusing it with LJBook or something else.

Here via Latest Things.

I recommend checking out [community profile] lj_refugees. Some people there have talked about clients that they use and other things that would be helpful to LJ users.

#3 - There's the Site and Account option that could help you search people by username.

Also as posted at [ profile] dreamwidth, "Still working on tracing today's slowness. (Found lots of things it isn't...) We'll post to dw-maintenance once we find & fix root cause."

I hope that helps!

Yep, no ads! One reason I want to support them.

As someone else said, I had success with using "site and account" in the dropdown for the search to look up a username.

Yes, I crosspost from DW to LJ. It seems easier that way, and the crossposter works like a charm once you get it set up. There's almost no delay in having it show up on LJ. I don't use a client because I never got in the habit of using one for LJ either. Since I use LJ more for friends, though, having DW open in a separate tab for posting my own entries was almost like having a client! Heh.

Yes, you can use Semagic. I never do but I set it up to work that way. I guess I SHOULD use it! I always forget though and end up doing a "rough" draft post in a notepad and then cutting/pasting usually.

No ads as far as I know.
I usually post to DW and it crossposts to LJ for me within a few seconds.
