Backup Community on DW

In light of Russia now having more, if all of LiveJournal's servers, there is a back up of this community on DreamWidth.

[community profile] comment_fic

The DW community is where we will be backing up this community on a weekly basis. You do not need to have an account there to leave comments as they accept OpenIDs, meaning, if you have an LJ account, you can post comments there using that account information.

Keep in mind that if you leave a comment there, it will not show up here. However, if you leave a comment here, it will eventually show up there...when we do the community backup every weekend.

When the time comes for us to have to post only to the DW community, the same rules apply there as they do here. Posting access will only be given to moderators/administrators and weekly guest hosts.

If you have any questions, please feel free to leave them here and I or one of the mods will try to answer them to the best of our ability.

This is only a back up right (for now )it's still here for now? lj servers have always been in Russia I believe . so there will still be themes posted here every day I have a dw but I am not on there I don't get it so if I want to guest host on lj I still can ?

This is the main account that will be updated daily until the Russians make it to where we can't. The DW acct is a backup for now.

The Russians shutting the comm down is just a hypothetical at this point, correct?

There is no definite time line?

I don't believe they are going to shut anyone down but as they are a country that frowns heavily upon a lot of the stuff that is posted within the community I wouldn't put it past some government official to try to do that if they stumbled upon the community.

Having the back up at dreamwidth it's just a precaution.

Thank you for the clarification and for taking the time and effort to back up the comm.

Better to be safe than sorry!

While I hate to think that anything bad will ever happen, it's always good to have a backup. :)

After I took care of my own journal and communities, I wanted to make sure this community would be safe. Good to know there's a backup on dreamwidth, especially since people deleting their accounts on LJ will delete their comments on all communities on LJ. Once it's backed up on DW, there's a copy at least.

I have a question: if comments have been deleted in the days between back-ups/re-imports of the comm to DW, do those comments still appear on DW?

For example, if a comm member leaves comments here on LJ, you do Back-Up B, that comm member deletes their personal LJ and all their LJ comments, and you do Back-Up B... then will that comm member's comments also disappear from DW?

I'm still not entirely sure how OpenID works, to be honest.

[edited b/c hashtags can work with one character, ugh]

If the person deletes their account, the comments remain, but if someone tries to click on their name, you get the the notification that the account has been deleted, or whatever one is told in that case.

I'm not sure if comments that were previously deleted here will be deleted on DW when imports happen. Meaning, I'm not sure if it's a full re-write of previously imported things or if entries/comments are just added.

From DW, this is what OpenID is: OpenID is a way for you to take the account you've created from another site that supports OpenID and use it to comment or participate in communities on Dreamwidth. Sites that offer OpenID support include all sites based on recent versions of the LiveJournal code, all sites based on Dreamwidth code, many email providers, and many more.

basically, if you have an (active) account with LJ or another platform that also uses openID, then you can comment in DW using that login information. For example, if I didn't have a DW acocunt, I could comment to a DW entry (if the settings allow for it) using my LJ login info.

Here is info about being able to comment on DW entries with your LJ user name.

Of course, this only applies if you don't already have a DW account.
