LJ

I just read that SUP moved the LJ servers to Russia and I'm considering deleting my LJ. I imported everything to DW years ago and have been crossposting since, so most of the data should be saved.

In case I delete my LJ in a few days: I'm astridv on Dreamwidth and will keep using that mirror account.

eta: frick, I can't delete just like that, a lot of my images are hosted on LJ. It would take ages to move them all.

I can't remember for the life of me what I did with the photos or how I migrated to DW. Surely there must be an option. There is backup software for LJ. Software which could be used to reblog those posts to DW. Of course then you'd lose the comments. :(

Yes, when you use the tool to import entries the comments can be selected as well. I do not, however, think that the photos will be transferred, too. I only used scrapbook for a short time, thankfully, so it wasn't much of a loss when I migrated.
