If you have logged into Livejournal recently, you would have noticed that there has been a new Terms of Service.
There is apparently no major change to privacy and data security, according to LJ.
I have no idea what they mean by major and minor changes. But if data privacy is going to be compromised in anyway (especially relating to famous Jpop groups) I would feel really unsafe. Fansubbing comms probably foresaw that danger and took measures to shift their comms to DW too.
Also, apparently accounts inactive for 6 months or so will be deleted (SERIOUSLY?!).
Therefore, I have made a decision with some other fanfiction writers to shift our fanfic communities and journals over to Dreamwidth.
What this move means:
1) Importing of fanfiction works
Don't worry if you aren't TOO open to the shift to Dreamwidth (DW) just yet- I will NOT be deleting this journal or teatimefics- I will simply be copying them over to a fanfic comm in DW. In future (probably in June or so), my new works will be cross-posted from DW to LJ.
2) Complete shift of NC-17 fics
I have absolutely no idea what the Russian laws dictate when it comes to content and data privacy (since I cannot read Russian), but a fellow fanfic writer suggested that I delete my NC-17 fics, just to be safe.
BEFORE YOU PANIC- these won't be wiped off the face of the Earth (heaven forbid if all my smoking-hot fics suddenly poofed), I have actually decided to set u another fanfic community EXCLUSIVELY for NC-17 - R content. I have actually toyed with this idea for a while since the start of 2017 but did not see the point of starting it in LJ (since most readers of my fics read it in TTF anyway). But since I would be moving to a new blogging platform.. why not? XD
If you want to join me in the shift to DW (in case things get bad on LJ and privacy is compromised), you can do the same. XD
My username on DW is unchanged: rainbow_teatime.
Feel free to add me in your circle if you DO go on DW.
Once I have set up the various communities, I will give an official "MOVED" announcement( along with the URLs to the two fanfic comms) here and on TTF so that no one misses out on this big step.
Finally, I want to thank EVERYONE on LJ who has commented or liked any of my fanfics- nothing really makes me happier than to learn that any of my works had made your day in one way or another. As I start moving to DW and cross-posting from there, I truly hope that my fanfic works could continue to do the same.
P.S. Teatimefics' username on DW remains unchanged. But do not go there yet- it's still WORK-IN-PROGRESS. XD
