Judging by all the Dreamwidth invite spam posts we were getting for a bit, it looks like most of you have figured out without us needing to tell you that yes, indeed, we are moving to Dreamwidth. More than half of you who voted said that you would certainly come with us if we moved to Dreamwidth, and we got many, many enthusiastic comments and suggestions -- thank you all so much.
Now it's time to hammer out some logistics. After some back and forth with the Dreamwidth admins and a look at the mod team's to-do list for the move, we're ballparking the Great Scans_Daily Move Party for this weekend.
It's been confirmed that Dreamwidth will give the mod team link to an invite code generator that will provide us with enough codes to move the whole community (and then some). When we have this url, we will provide the link in a locked post to both communities. If you need an invite to get a Dreamwidth account, all you will need to do is follow the link, click a button, and receive an invite code to create your account.
If you really want to set up an account right now, you have several options: - You can buy an account. One last reminder: anyone who wants to buy a paid account is advised to do so by October 31st, before the price hike. - You can go to sd_invite and ask us to send you a code from our donation pool.
The corollary of this is that if you have codes you're willing to donate, it would be fantabulous if you'd go over to this post and send them to us so we can keep the pool going. People have been incredibly generous so far. Thank you so much, everyone.
Note: A number of people donated codes before October 24th, when we first found out and announced that there would be an invite generator to get the community started. We don't want to just assume without asking that you still want to give us your codes under changed circumstances, so we've contacted you to confirm your donation. If you haven't already, pease let us know. Even if you've changed your mind, we still very much appreciate the offer.
ETA: The invite code generator is now active. Existing members please refer to my follow up post. Prospective members, please email us at dailyscans[at]gmail[dot]com. I've responded at SD_Invite but will be screening those comments momentarily. Thanks!
