SO, NGL, I was skeptical and resistant to change but THIS SITE IS ACTUALLY PRETTY DAMN AWESOME. Now we just have to get the LJ RP community to jump ship as a whole and everything will be awesome. I just bought a month's paid time (three bucks, y'all!) to check out the beta features and see what DW could offer and it's lovely. The icon browse beta feature is perfect (I love that you can show icons all clean and pretty together) and I'm liking the create entry page as well!

Man, seriously. Having shit work is amazing.

DW, bb, where have you been all my life?

HEY DW PEOPLE. Who knows, maybe I'll actually start making personal updates again over here... it's been like a year and a half since my last one, lol. :V The great LJ exodus of 2011 looks like it's well underway. I wonder if this will kill RP on LJ completely... ANYHOW. Messing with the settings on this and where is everything idgi. /o\

AND NOW I'm going to compile various links of explanations/comms/things to make RPing on DW easier, mainly for my future reference:

A Guide to RP-specific features on LJ vs DW
[community profile] multiversal's general wiki entry about DW and swapping over
An index for a DW community recommendation post -- some RP-specific stuff here
DW FAQ about the differences between DW and LJ regarding site-specific html
A pretty comprehensive LJ-to-DW guide -- still being worked on but looks pretty good.
Some help for settling in at DW
Dreamwidth resource list - a way more organised link dump than mine

A how-to for installing LJ layouts on DW
How to make DW look like LJ
Tropospherical Blue DW site skin - makes the site look very close to LJ (this link also has some bug fixes and new code in the comments, but I haven't tried that out at all)

Dreamwidth, Tables and You - a guide for getting html working on DW.
[community profile] dreamcodes - a sharing comm for profile codes, muselists and CR charts
A workaround for getting profile codes to display

A list of active DW RPGs on [community profile] rptalk, a general RP discussion comm
[community profile] localroleplay -- a comm for advertising DW RPGs
[community profile] rprefugees -- a new comm for LJ deserters :V
[personal profile] dwroleplay -- an archive/journal for info, discussions and help with roleplays on DW, with another list of active DW RPGs

[community profile] dear_mun -- WE ALL KNOW WHAT THIS IS (and it's totes on the active list but I used it all the time to voicetest on LJ so :V)
[community profile] memebells -- Open prompt comm. (Nothing there yet but I assume it'd keep the same name?) ACTUALLY, if it's open memes memebells-style you want, [community profile] memelicious appears to be up and running and active. Or... semi-active. IDK. Everything is very disconnected and spread out so far. There's a few different places for this stuff and checking out the links from the list of active rps will probably yield something.

I... hesitated to put this in, but: [community profile] rpanons. I don't read the anon comms on LJ and I don't really like anon culture myself as I think it can breed bad things, but I decided I'd stick it on the list anyway because I think it's actually probably a valuable resource for people trying to network with a new and currently rather disconnected/spread out RP scene. Finding games or players may be easier here because there's more people. I imagine it's probably been advertised on the LJ anon comm so there'd probably overlap in the userbase, which is a plus. Anyhow. There it is. :V

[personal profile] witchbaby's Why We Should Move To Dreamwidth

Also, not RP-specific, but the masterlist of community masterlists (because DW is less active community-wise than LJ) can be found here.

OKAY, I think that's it for now. ANYWAY I have nothing else important to say so I'mma keep fiddling with this layout and stuff! o/
