TOS Meltdown (LURKERS AND MEMBERS)



Well hello there, how are you all doing? Have you all agreed to the new terms of service? Well you must have or you probably can’t read this.

Haldoor and Dreamy and I have been e-mailing back and forth and we are concerned. So we thought we’d open the discussion to you.

What are your thoughts on the mass migration away from LJ that the new TOS is driving? Are you planning on shutting down here? Are you planning on moving? Are you going to be running in two locations?

I know that a lot of you do currently post at multiple websites, or at the very least have a place that you opened ages ago and use occasionally. I do. Couldn’t tell you what my Dreamwidth password is, but I know I have one. Where else do you post? I’m not looking for a link, I’m just looking for an I love bobsjournal dot com.

And then we’d like to know, if we moved would you still follow us? WE’D LIKE LURKERS to chime in as well. We have any number of people who stop by for a month or here and there when they have time. People who read prompts for inspiration and do what they will with them. I like that about us. So I’d hate to lose that because we locked down the site or moved to someplace that’s not as accessible to everyone.

We’re concerned for original works that are linked here. We’re concerned for fanworks being viewed as something that shouldn’t happen. We are concerned for discriminatory political decision making. And these concerns make us want your thoughts. We’re not saying we’ll definitely move, or we’ll definitely stay, or that we’ll follow the majority. We’re looking for a discussion, for thoughts and feelings.

Thanks
Kaige, Haldoor, Dreamy.

EDIT: Thank you to everyone for commenting! It means so much to get such wonderful people taking their time to take part.

FURTHER EDIT: If you are uncomfortable commenting here I can be reached as kaige68 at hotmail, yahoo, and gmail. Even if I forced Dreamy to comment anyway. ;)
