Given the new LJ TOS (which is really a POS) and the CHECHNYAN CONCENTRATION CAMPS FOR GAY PEOPLE, moving away from LiveJournal is a requirement. I started trying to import the LJ comm [community profile] twispitefic from LJ to Dreamwidth yesterday (currently open to fic and crossover deconstructions written about Twilight, Fifty Shades, and Barbara G. Walker's Feminist Fairy Tales, which, trust me, are about as feminist as a Cro-Magnon). The profile, the tags, the sidebar, etc. have moved over; the entries and comments have not.

I'm not sure if this is a delay in the queue or if there's a problem with importing a community. Either way, I need some help. I really don't want six years of stories to vanish, and the members of the comm are urging me to move it to Dreamwidth immediately. Which I'd be more than happy to do.

This is important, because the comm Das_Sporking also has to be imported to [community profile] das_sporking2. (There is a Das_Sporking comm on Dreamwidth, but it has not been updated since 2013, and the only mod for it hasn't been around for almost a year.) Das_Sporking has been around for about eight years, and there are a LOT of posts and comments to import. No one wants to lose the entries and comments, but we can't remain on LJ under Russian law (including the anti-gay law) either. And many of our members have said that Das_Sporking is the only reason that they still have an LJ account.

For the record, this is what I'm seeing on the Import Journal page:

Importer Queue Depth:
bio: 0, comments: 1273, entries: 1624, friendgroups: 0, friends: 1, tags: 0, userpics: 0, verify: 0

Profile data: Finished successfully as of 21 hours ago; created 21 hours ago

Icons: Finished successfully as of 21 hours ago; created 21 hours ago
Verifying username/password: Finished successfully as of 21 hours ago; created 21 hours ago

Is it getting ready to import? Is it not able to import entries?

Please help. I'm lost.

First of all, hello and welcome! It's lovely to see you here and I hope this community can help you.

To keep things reasonably organised and to help you find relevant information quickly, there's a tagging system in place. A full list of tags can be found at: http://getting-started.dreamwidth.org/tag/

I've been going through entries and tagging them, but do add tags to your posts if you think any are suitable. If you need help, it can be a good idea to go through the tag to see if anyone has asked a similar question before. Bear in mind, however, that Dreamwidth is being actively developed and there have been many code pushes since its foundation; some older information may be outdated and no longer relevant.

Currently, creating new tags, removing tags from entries, and adding existing tags to entries is limited to community administrators. If you think of a useful tag that hasn't been created yet, or a post that should be tagged differently than it currently is, please let an administrator know!
