The Lifecycle Of Live Journal

Any time there are changes to anything on Live Journal.

Step One: Change begins to be implemented without any announcement to the userbase.

Step Two: People start blogging about the changes. Half the people don't know what they are talking about.

Step Three: The people who have actually seen the changes and people who have only heard about the changes start blogging about how the changes suck.

Step Four: Suddenly tons of people blog that Live Journal is dying.

Step Five: People start signing up for Dreamwidth accounts.

Step Six: Live Journal finally posts a "News" item talking about the changes and swearing they care about your concerns.

Step Seven: More posts appear with kicker lines reading "Originally posted at Dreamwidth. You can comment there or here."

Step Eight: No comments are ever made at Dreamwidth.

Step Nine: People continue to post at Live Journal as though nothing has happened.

Anytime Live Journal has a DDos or any other technical problem.

Step One: People start blogging about the problem. Half the people don't know what they are talking about.

Step Two: Suddenly tons of people blog that Live Journal is dying.

Step Three: People start signing up for Dreamwidth accounts.
