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.

To be honest, I'm not happy with my content from this community going over to DW. If I want it at DW, I'm posting/commenting there.

I realize that I'm in the minority (and people won't care) and you'll still import it over there (I loathe the fact that they made it possible to import communities) but if there is a way to leave my content out of it, please do so.

Thank you.

I'm sorry if my post was confusing: the community isn't moving to DW. I'm just backing up the data there in case LJ deletes our content because some of our works are in violation of Russian child protection laws.

I don't see any work tags for your userid so I assume you mean your comments. In which case, after the import you can of course go in under openid and delete your comments. They are your words. No one wants to take away your control over them. We're just backing everything up.

I hope that clarifies and I'm sorry you're unhappy, but I'm an archivist and a data technician and this is a real risk. I don't want to lose years of a thriving community because of censorship. This is our SGA fandom history. I don't want us to lose it. Your comments are of course part of it and I don't want to lose them either, but if you feel the medium makes a difference, it's up to you. Just know that your openid gives you control. Okay?
