Backing up to Dreamwidth

All: I'm planning to back up the contents of sga_saturday to a community of the same name on Dreamwidth to preserve the contents of our community in the event that something should happen (*cough* censorship) due to the illegality of some of our works under the current laws of Russia (in June 2013, a federal law criminalizing the distribution of materials among minors in support of "non-traditional" sexual relationships, was enacted as an amendment to an existing child protection law). Seeing as the LJ servers have recently been moved there, this is a real concern.

Please let me know if you are a contributor to this community and have any concerns about having your content backed up to DW.

I'll give it a week before I proceed.

I've no content on the comm but I wanted to let you know how glad I am that you made this decision. Really, really glad!

Now I hope that other comm-admins get the same idea - storyfinder, genrefinder, the rec-comms ...

Having these and other comms possibly disappear one day without warning would feel like a fandom-catastrophe to me. :-(

Thanks for the support, pat! I hope so as well.

Um, sorry for raining on your parade but the content would still be gone. All the old links (especially before the AO3 existed) will be broken/dead ends should LJ/the accounts ever go away...

A lot of the old links are already broken, what with personal websites and LJs disappearing and content being moved to AO3. What matters to these comms--genrefinders and storyfinders--are the questions and answers. Anyone reading back through can do a simple search to find the current home of the fic in question, if it's still on the Internet. If not, a new post asking to share the fic is easy enough.

We're resourceful people; nothing is truly lost if we have just a clue to find it.
