If you haven't, please PLEASE back up your journal - it's so much of our culture's history that would be erased if it happens! It only takes a few minutes to do. If you want, I'll do it for you (you'll need to give me your password, but then you can just change it if you're uncomfortable)
But really, it's only a few minutes.
Guide


ETA:It's really simple, DW just has a page for that -
https://www.dreamwidth.org/support/faqbrowse?faqid=127
1) Log in to DW
2) click the link in the first line
3) you'll get a form with clicky boxes for what you'd like to back up (everything!). Fill the form, go read fic.

If you're having trouble logging into an old DW account - maybe just open a new one? The combined time of opening a new account and backing up my journal maybe took about ten minutes....
(of course, then I stayed there messing with it, which took about the same time with no necessity)




[mention of kinkshaming and politics ahead]


OK - this is important and I mean it -
you lovely people into water sports getting second-hand kinkshamed because of that horrible white man - YOU DON'T DESERVE IT, and I am so sorry you're getting this, and you are lovely!

I'm hoping to look into this over the weekend. I'd love to have a back up of as many people on my flist as I can, I'd just hate to lose touch with you all if anything did happen to LJ!

Some people mentioned trouble logging into / forgetting passowrds

for existing DW accounts - really, if that happens - maybe just open a new one?
I did that, and really, the combined time of opening an account and backing up my j was like 10 m ....

It's really simple, DW just has a page for that -
