I am about 50% of the way through fixing my Dreamwidth Circle to include people's DW names instead of their LJ names if I am certain that they have moved over. It's exhausting! And removing the people who are ACTUALLY DEAD or who I have irreversibly lost contact with (i.e. they haven't logged into LJ since 2003) is emotionally draining.

If you are reading this but are not already in my Circle because your name is different here than it was on LJ, please let me know. Also all of my old filters are messed up, I literally cannot remember who used to have access to what, so if you happen to have a bookmarked post which you can't read any more, let me know and I'll filter you back in. I'm a little tempted to simply delete ALL of my old filters and start again, but I have around 25 of the things - they must have been useful for something!

I also need to remind myself how the S2 system works, and port over my old LJ style if it's actually S2. I can't remember whether I ever got around to switching from S1 to S2! I quite like the default Dreamwidth style that I'm using at the moment, apart from all of the titles being in BLOCK CAPITALS. I am the sort of person who even likes to put her own name in lower case, so all of these BLOCK CAPITALS are quite SHOUTY and I don't like my own journal SHOUTING at me.

In related news, I need to set up a custom mood scheme because I don't like any of the defaults. I *like* my rainbow faces over at LJ, okay?! Might have to commission someone who can sprite to create a custom mood scheme for me. That's not actually a bad idea...

Edit: Ye gods, this is depressing. Apparently it's livejournal's 18th birthday. I could cry.

I know. I have a filter named "vent" and a different one called "whinge," and can't remember why I needed two. To say nothing of the one labeled "semi-private" (which is not the "sweeties" filter: I know why I have that).

I also have a few that it brought over as posting filters even though they were used only for reading on LJ: things like RSS feeds, and LJ Support-related communities.

I have some apparent-duplicates sort of like that. Mostly they amount to the equivalent of "It has been a decade since I set up the 'vent' filter, so it's no longer the set of people I want to vent to, but I don't want to completely remove these people from the set of posts they can read, so I'll create a new filter."

Which is to say, there's a lot of fossilized cruft in there, in my case. I should probably clean it out at some point.

Oh dear, it's as if LJ had been sheltered from real life as a minor, but just as it became 18 it suddenly any remaining links to it's childhood joy are severed and wakes up to find it's on it's own and in a very scary place.
