oh, the drama.  
I don't think that LJ will actually really pull the plug or go anywhere at all (still too big of a business), but just in case I made a backup journal at insanejournal, where I have exactly the same name that I have here. It's without the comments but I'm planning on saving those with the ljbook (thanks, eponine119!) as soon as the traffic there slows down and I manage to do the whole thing. But seriously? Crazy stuff. :/ In case, this post is an excellent resource. And this evening I'm so saving all the comment fics on word anyway, thankfully I still have most of the fanfiction stuff on Word still. *headdesk* I just hope this work is all for nothing anyway.

I'm creating a back-up journal there too. Thanks for posting the instructions on how to transfer it all over.

Regardless of LJ's problems. It's good to have back-up.

Yeah, I'm just hoping that we're overreacting and that it will end up in at least having done the back up which is always good to have.

You're welcome. ;) It went as smooth as ever so at least the back up itself didn't create any problems.

Okay done! It's not as nice over there but at least we have options.

Yeah, not really but at least it's there. *friends*

What's happening to LJ? ):
the female ghost of tom joad: wtfjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2009 07:07 pm (UTC)
In short, it looks like they fired 20 out of the 28 people that worked there and so people are worried that they're in economical trouble and that everything could get shut down. About the first part of the statement, no doubts, but I'm very skeptical on the second. Still, I backed everything up just in case.
Calovelyfix on January 6th, 2009 07:13 pm (UTC)
Oh my! I had no idea. I should like to doubt they wouldn't shut it down, but people have been doing scary things in this economy. :(
the female ghost of tom joad: confusedjanie_tangerine on January 6th, 2009 07:20 pm (UTC)
I think they'd lose money if they shut the whole thing down so I doubt that they would. Still, better safe than sorry.

I know it's probably nothing but I've been panicking for a while now, lol. Aahh seriously. *dies*

I think it'll end up being nothing but still. It's good to have back-up anyway. *sigh*

I just made an InsaneJournal account as well, although I'm not planning on backing up my LJ. Sigh.

*friends* I had to back up because I really wouldn't want to lose fic *sigh*. I really hope it's for nothing.

Meno male che ho smesso di usare LJ da tempo, prevedevo simili scenari... comunque grazie dell'avviso, vedrò di fare il backup appena posso.

Secondo me non succederà niente ma per sicurezza...

I'll be friending you back then! Yeah, I don't think they will, but still. At least I did the back up I always had to do.

That's really great ... I arrive here (and like it) and then, suddenly, everything is just apocalyptic. Wtf?

I wouldn't worry too much, especially since I read somewhere that said people who were fired weren't able to transfer to Moscow where they should relocate LJ's quarters since now Russians own it, but still. At least I made that back up. But I think that LJ isn't going anywhere at all. ♥
missy_useless: juliet/sawyermissy_useless on January 6th, 2009 09:13 pm (UTC)
It's just like - wtf? I tried for the last few weeks to get used to livejournal and I really fell in love with it (i.e. its LOST-fandom) and now I've no idea what's going on (I'm a little bit overchallenged here - honestly).
But yeah, I think I'll just ignore it for now (it's rather pointless to do a back-up for a journal that has two entries so far, and I think I'll cross that bridge when we come to it). Let's hope for the best.

And thankfully your last entry is safely saved on my pen-drive. ;)

I'm searching for new information and it looks like they axed less people than source #1 said and I still don't think anything is going anywhere, even if what they did up there (firing people without notice) doesn't exactly rub right on me. Still, I think nothing is happening anytime soon, or so I hope. LJ is a great place to stay (Lost fandom especially ;) ) and I'd hate to lose it.

It's gonna be fine. And now, I'll just have to distract myself. (I still have to post some prompts at lost_squee, perhaps I should do that now. ;))
*hugs you* ♥
Lou: dramagottalovev on January 6th, 2009 11:38 pm (UTC)
yeah, backed up, just in case (and added you!)

Did the same thing yesterday I think? Well, at least it's good to have the back up anyway. ;)
