Dreamwidth account is ready to GO!  
My Dreamwidth account has finished "content import"ing all my Livejournal files and have converted them to be compatible on my DW account!

Now my DW account looks almost exactly like my LJ account (except the profile's bio page on DW...)

Mind you, it took a little more than a day for everything to transfer over, but at least I didn't have to manually transfer everything over which would have taken me even longer. There's a queue when you "content import" your entries, but I think the waiting is worth it since DW is my backup online journal of Livejournal and I would hate to lose all my entries...

For those who have recently created DW accounts and want to add me as always, my username is [personal profile] corlee1289

I thought the same exact thing at first when I created the DW, but after browsing around on DW, I noticed there was something that said "content import" <33

I don't know how to create an account :) I have to get a creation code right?

You need a creation code in order to create a DW account. But you don't need one if you plan on buying a premium account ^^;;

DW layout and function is practically the same thing as LJ and you can content import all your entries from LJ to DW which is really useful!!

"We've seen increases in the number of people using the content importer to back up their content from LJ over the past few days, and with LiveJournal inaccessible during periods of heavy DDoS traffic, this can cause a problem with imports timing out or not otherwise succeeding. We'd like to ask you to consider holding off on starting a new import for a few days, until the problem can clear up a bit. Our importer is smart enough to retry an import a few times if the process times out before giving up completely, but minimizing the traffic that LJ needs to cope with can only help them out."

If yours was aborted, that means the DW server attempted several times before it gave up ^^;; But it's also because of the massive amount of people who are importing their contents and because LJ is still messing up...

You should try importing again when you can since at the moment, everyone is trying to import all their content from LJ
Apple: Kurumiru: Angryfelixkeep on April 7th, 2011 09:30 pm (UTC)

My poor Apple!!

Then perhaps you should try again after all of this has passed?

I'm pretty sure you're not the only one who's importing all their content from LJ to be compatible for DW.

I was lucky to be able to have all my stuff imported before all the madness occured XD
