DW News: 18 December 2016

Hello, Dreamwidth! I know: it's been ages since the last news post. There are many reasons, all of them tedious and boring and basically boiling down to being so ready to see the backside of 2016. (Seriously, at this point I think we may need to drive a stake through this year's heart and bury it in a silver coffin at the crossroads by the light of the full moon.) I'd been hoping to write you one of our usual chatty updates to let you know what we've been up to (we have been doing stuff! it's very interesting stuff!) but various and sundry tedious boring things have meant I didn't have the time before departing tomorrow on the extended vacation my wife and I are taking to ritually cleanse 2016 from our lives...

I do have some news that I wanted to share before departure, though! Many of you have already noticed it, but for those of you who haven't or who are new here: the December holiday points bonus has been active since the beginning of December. All orders of paid time or points made in the Dreamwidth Shop during the month of December will receive a 10% points bonus to spend or save for the future. For instance, if you buy a 12-month paid account (350 points), you'll get another 35 points once the order is complete for you to use on a future order. This bonus only applies to orders of paid time or points -- bonus icons and rename tokens don't receive points bonuses. If you buy paid time or points for a friend, the bonus points will go to you, not to them.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: When we say "the month of December", that goes by server time, which is in UTC. It's not midnight your local time zone! (For people in Pacific time, for instance, the promotion ends at 4PM on 31 December.) Every year a few people get bitten by this, so if you're planning on buying paid time during December, it's best to do it on 30 December or before.

We do this promotion every December as a way to say "thank you" to everyone who supports us. We're a tiny company with no outside investors, no venture capitalist money, and no advertising (anywhere): your payments are what lets us keep offering the site to everyone. Since our income comes entirely from you, you know that the decisions we make are always and only for you, not for advertisers, marketers, or the people who hold the purse strings. You're what lets us keep this place running, and we love you for it.

I hate to post and run, but I'll be leaving you all in the eminently capable hands of [staff profile] mark, [staff profile] karzilla, and [personal profile] alierak for the next few weeks while Sarah and I investigate ways to exorcise the fetid corpse of this bloody year. Happy holidays, whichever of them you're celebrating, and I'll be back in 2017 with a run-through of what we've been up to lately.

я правильно вас понял, что вполне реально соединять посты написанные тут (дрим) и там (жж) в одном посте? я их пока кросспощу, но хотелось бы большего

Я признаться не понял, что значит "объединять". Вы можете кросспостить, включая в кросспост ссылку на оригинал. Вы также можете и здесь и там иметь одинаковый связанный с акком email, тогда ни одно уведомление не пропадет. Объединения по технологии жж-шного репоста, то есть когда в жж копия поста, но все комменты идут в оригинал записи, вроде нет. То есть если оставят комментарий в ЖЖ, он не появится в записи на дриме, и наоборот. Можно конечно регулярно запускать импорт, он (по идее) будет подтягивать новые комменты из жж сюда, добавляя к уже существующим. На тифаретнике это лучше реализовано, там кросспост отображает количество комментов в оригинале и содержит ссылку для реплая непосредственно в оригинале. А не только ссылку на запись.

так и делаю, но все равно напрягает - 50 на 50 постов там и тут

а, кстати - не напомните где этот импорт обновлять, то? попробую сейчас

Ну, лично я, чтобы не напрягаться, переехал сюда. И кросспостов не настраивал. А так - можно отключить комменты в жж, повторюсь. Тогда 100% новых постов будет и тут и там, но комменты только тут.
