BTW, I do have an open ID account over there -- ithildyn.livejournal.com -- and I've added people to my reading list from here that I recognize. So if you have a Dreamwidth account, let me know! When they open things up at the end of the month, I'll see about getting a real account.

Now the question is, when that day comes, do I use the LJ version of my user name, Ihildyn, or do I see if I can snag Ithildin, which is my original user name?

I'm lferion there too. And I'd go for the name you really really want :-).

I was thinking of doing what's easiest for everyone else! LOL

Ithildin! I have an open id over there too but still no account.

I think--you should do whatever makes you happier.

Happier? What is this happier? And, look, I get to use my new icon for the first time!
dejladejla on April 14th, 2009 06:40 pm (UTC)
It's this mood where you bounce around and squeal. Like you did when you got that icon! (snickers)

Makes this a second definitive - go for Ithildin! :)
Ithithildyn on April 14th, 2009 06:06 pm (UTC)
So noted :)
layla_aaronluscious_words on April 14th, 2009 06:52 pm (UTC)
Not that I have a clue of what dreamwidth is. ;)
Otterly Evilotterevil on April 14th, 2009 06:36 pm (UTC)
I vote for Ithilchicklet!


Btw, I just added you :)
Ithithildyn on April 15th, 2009 02:51 am (UTC)
Errr... no LOL

So, I checked out this dreamwidth thing, interesting, has definite possibilities that LJ doesn't. But how does one go about getting an invite code?
Ithithildyn on April 15th, 2009 02:53 am (UTC)
Luck, friends who who like you [g] I'm pretty sure there will be no invite codes forthcoming for me -- there's just more peopel who want them then there are codes -- so I'll buy a one month account when it opens.

...which is something I have a habit of doing, hope you don't mind.

I wouldn't be too sure about that. I had just checked my e-mail and gotten an invite, granted I can't decide whether to go with my first name, Amy, or my username for all my other blogs/journal/etcs...but anyway, back to the point, I was sure that I wouldn't be getting one...even gave up on getting one and there it was. So, I wouldn't give up quite yet.

Re: Followed From the Clarion News Flist....
Hee, no, I don't mind. I follow people 'home' all the time. Even mention it in my profile [g]

I've heard a rumour that people who have a registered Open ID account will get an invite code when it opens at the end of the month. No idea if it's true, but we;'ll see :)

Nice to meet you!

Re: Followed From the Clarion News Flist....
Cool greens. I just say that because one never knows how others feel about someone commenting out of nowhere.

I've heard that too, and to be honest, I'm still waiting to see if that's the case. Wait and see indeed.

Nice to meet you, too!

Re: Followed From the Clarion News Flist....
I firmly believe the internet is all about meeting new people, so unless something is totally locked down, I love showing up on doorsteps, or vice versa :)

Which spelling do you prefer? I don't think one letter will make any difference to people knowing who you are, IMHO you should pick the username you want.

Course, I picked little_ms_dvus for IJ and subcircus for inkspot so clearly I have no clue about my online identity at all *grin*

I like it anyway you like it! Me I'm bookaddict43 wherever I go - I lack originality *shakes head*.

To at least look at it, I thought I'd try the open ID thing but it won't let me *pouts*.

It won't? Maybe try again tomorrow? I couldn't get it to work when I first tried.

I signed in with open ID, but that's just your LJ account. It was difficult to understand but it said you could only get an account if someone invites you unless you purchase an account. If LJ did that people would want to tar and feather them. They'd be yelling *discrimination*.

*shrugs* I'm waiting to see what it looks like when they finally get it open and going. If I like it I would be willing to buy an account. I bought one for LJ and IJ both after all.
Ithithildyn on April 14th, 2009 11:46 pm (UTC)
It's only because they're still in closed beta. It isn't open for official business yet. Apparently when LJ first started, they used a similar invitation system. That way they can control the server load while they're testing.

I did the open account too -- adabsolutely.insanejournal.com, but nothing else yet. I've been trying to find people without success. Will have to do a bit more fiddling around to figure it out.
Ithithildyn on April 15th, 2009 02:55 am (UTC)
I've found some folks, especially the ones with the same names both places :)
Miyekomiyeko on April 19th, 2009 06:44 am (UTC)
I vote for old school Ithildin.
Ithithildyn on April 19th, 2009 06:11 pm (UTC)
That seems to be the popular choice!
