"Throw the crib door wide, let the people crawl inside"

I have disabled crossposting to LiveJournal and am in the process of making all my posts there private. (That doesn't work on custom filters, but if you delete a filter, it effectively makes filtered posts private. If you do want to delete all your entries, here's a Selenium script that runs in Firefox, courtesy of [personal profile] xtina.) For the moment I'm not deleting my account, but I will no longer post or comment there. I agreed to the TOS only so that I could retrieve my content. I will not make more content for them to run ads against or judge by horrible anti-queer laws. If they delete it, then they delete it.

Welcome, new folks! If you're just moving here from LJ, some tips:

1) Claim your LJ handle so that comments that you made on LJ are attributed to your DW when they're imported. Your OpenID URL is the URL of your old journal, username.livejournal.com. I believe you'll need to be able to log into LJ to do this, so if you've deleted your account, you'll need to temporarily undelete it, and it might not work if you haven't agreed to the LJ TOS (*spit*).

2) Look for your old LJ friends in this post on [community profile] 2017revival and the comments. You can also post a personal ad to [community profile] 2017revival or read the ones posted there if you want to make new friends.

Also, if you were mad enough to delete or mothball your LJ account over anti-queer provisions, please take a moment to support Russian LGBT Network, which does very valuable work. Right now they're running an emergency hotline for people endangered by the anti-gay purges happening in Chechnya. If you can donate, please do (perhaps the amount you would have put toward your next LJ paid account renewal). If you can't, please signal-boost.

I don't suppose there's a handy-dandy sweeping way to do that for all entries at once?

Thank you!

(All these fascinating pieces of Livejournal I never knew about because I never had need to use them. Dammit, LJ.)

Ah, that's the last piece I needed to shift everything to private, thank you.

done, thank you! and will be donating to the Russian LGBT Network on payday. thank you for that -- i'm glad to know there's someone on the ground putting people-at-risk in touch with resources, and that there is some way for the rest of us to help a little bit.

Setting everything to private is also a suitable ... pseudo-compromise? stopgap? effective solution? for my needs; thanks for the heads up re: how to do it.

Thank you, do you mind if I link to this for the Russian LGBT Network info?

I've imported from lj, and claimed my handle, and am incrementally deleting lj content. in the course of which I noticed:
the import doesn't rehost images hosted on lj, which means once I delete my lj, those are gone.
do you know of any way to bulk import lj-hosted images?

I couldn't find it - is there a way to actually close out - delete - one's LJ account? It took a while, but everything of mine is now on DW.
