Dear Internet,

I went ahead and made a Dreamwidth.

http://kigs.dreamwidth.org/

My plan is to cross post to both. I'm still not entirely sure what the difference between the two is. If anyone can enlighten me on the matter, I would be very appreciative.

Also, who else is on there? Do you like it?

Truly,
Kigs

Not heard of it. Obviously from the coder's response it's a bit more flexible than LJ.

It looks like it's based off the LJ code, but is more modernized.

I just don't know if their features are enough to motivate people to migrate over there.

Right. They're happy with it, but it looks like a carbon copy.

It's a bunch of (now ex) coders for LJ and some other folks that all were heavy LJ users, that decided to start DW after several of the 'fiascos' that LJ has had lately, especially when it became damnable hard (according to reports) to get any code checked into LJ by outsiders anymore.

In effect, DW is 'just a fork' of LJ, that seems to be pulling a slow but patient "X.org versus XFree86" type of split, and trying to make it more painless by being highly up-front and overly transparent about their business plans on an on-going basis, and also adding things like the 'automatic multi-post' feature so folks don't have to completely abandon their previous LJ like with the other LJ-codebase sites like InsaneJournal, DeadJournal, and the like.
