*waves* at new arrivals from tumblr. It's kind of quiet here. Or if it isn't you can f-lock everything and keep the wank out, o joy of peace.

To everyone else: guess what, the Sherlock fandom on tumblr has exploded into such wank that people are actually starting to come back to LJ. Possibly including me, though I am a total social media sheep and will only post here if other people do.

Let us post, perchance to enjoy some peaceful, um, peace. :)

Hey!
Well. I kinda... hope we'll settle on one platform or the other? But for now, I guess I'm here too, so. *waves*

I was resigned to settling on tumblr until there started to be so much wank that it felt unsafe even though I wasn't personally involved. I'll go where the interesting people are.

*waves back* it's nice to have some of the faces from when I first found LJ back over here *smiles happily*

I presume you found [livejournal.com profile] tumblr_refuge as I think it might be quite a nice place to chat peaceably.

OK, a) I hadn't found tumblr refuge at all, so I'm off to investigate, thanks and b)... er, I don't remember your username! Do I know you as someone else? Sorry.

Don't worry about not remembering me. I followed you for your fic and was a lot quieter when I first found the fandom. More of a lurker than a participator. I think we met at an SH Picnic though. Possibly (again, used to be shy and have a terrible inability to match faces to names).

As I blocked most Sherlock content that isn't shiny pictures on my tumblr I'm a bit scared to ask what's happening. Wow.

It'd be nice to see people on LJ again though. It was so much easier to find like-minded people to interact with in the LJ days.

Your blocking policy is a sound one, I promise. And hi!

I can believe it, given the things that led me to block it in the first place. Yikes.

Despite the circumstances it's good to see you. :]

*Waves back* I hear about the wank without actually witnessing the wank itself, thank goodness. But if LJ is starting up again, I'm all for it; I used LJ heavily once upon a time and I miss it. I'd love to see it revive.

I blogged here for about eight years and never anticipated jumping ship.

My policy awaits confirmation but will involve some f-locking.

I'm excited that you're here! I've stayed so involved in tumblr b/c I didn't want to lose regular contact with friends.

From: [identity profile] pennypaperbrain.livejournal.com
That made me think you were already building an LJ presence, but I just looked and there's only one post...

I'm starting here fresh. I had been using LJ as a scratch pad for posts that ended up polished on tumblr. I locked them away b/c they're not really relevant anymore. I didn't really know how to participate on LJ and I only knew a few people, but it looks like more folks are coming over (or coming back) so I'll be hanging out here, posting new stuff, trying to learn the ways, etc.

Sometimes a little quiet can be refreshing :)

I sure hope lj will be back- I met seriously awesome people here<3

OK, I bet this is going to happen a few times to me... I totally recognise your icon. I totally don't remember which tumblr username it's attached to.

No problem! On tumblr I'm lustforlife13, since Gratiela was already taken - by a person who has very little in common with me :))) But never mind, I barely posted anything personal, just reblogging Sherlock and feminist stuff. My home is here, on lj

People coming back to LJ? Wonderful! Count me in!

I dunno if they'll stay, but I'd rather be over here if they do.

I have no idea how I commented twice, hours apart. Fixed now.

Still here, never left, am hanging on like those stubborn old men who refuse to evacuate their shacks under threat of forest fires or earthquakes.

Well, your shack is still standing! Though your life is obviously a bit wobbly. Sorry about that.

Well, I might actually participate in Sherlock fandom again if that happens. Not that people don't make the Tumblr format work for discussions, but LJ is actually designed for them. And much more peaceful.

As far as I can tell, it was LJ's unreliability that finally caused an exodus. And that was down to massive attacks by the Russian government on election days. Seems likely that will happen again, but down time from ddos attacks seems more palatable than endless wank.

Hi. I've managed to miss the Tumblr drama by being so busy with 9W that I don't have time to read it. But I do read LJ every day, despite my infrequent posting.

Date: 2014-06-19 12:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] pennypaperbrain.livejournal.com
I think 9W beats tumblr from every possible angle at the moment! Keep making it good!

Thank you. Especially as I've just been given the printing deadline for the programme book. I would now like to go out the back and shoot myself.

LJ seems to be working again, so I'm glad that I held fast here, although setting up a tumblr as a photo album.

It's being a bit slow for me sometimes, but basically it functions.

I managed 2 whole days on tumblr before deciding that my LJ backwater suited me fine! But it's nice to see Sherlock people here- welcome back!

Tumblr is so not the place for looking after your mental health. Some of the people, yes, the interface, no.
