"Hey, I Wanna Play, Too!"

Nice to see Livejournal getting into the whole social networking game fad that Facebook caught only two or three years ago. Good on 'ya! Who cares if you're so far behind the curve that you've been lapped? And who cares if the games look like they suck ten dicks and ask for an 11th? Good effort, tiger!

Of course, while you Russian idiots are trying to shoehorn (likely blatantly stolen) games into a code base that hasn't evolved since Brad Fitzpatrick made it a decade ago, you still haven't made an effective way for us to search our journals.

God, you guys suck. No wonder your site is irrelevant.

The only reasons I stay here is A) history, B) friends, C) Fire Emblem. Because I am quite sure that this fandom is not packing up and moving anytime soon, and so long as I avoid the drama... it's nice. Some of the decisions of what's important made as of late have left me scratching a hole in my head.

I don't understand why they're bringing in games when every time a news post goes up, notifications get all frakked up.

LJ would really do well to consider, instead of trying to become Facebook, that many of us prefer this site because it isn't Facebook.

Yes, but the Russian owners don't care about the opinions of you, permanent account holder. They cannot make money off of you. They bought this place to make money, and to them, making money means copying Facebook.

It's delightfully naive, but that's the sad reality. And honestly? My putting up with it is YOUR fault! >:[1

1 Not SPECIFICALLY your fault, but if I could get my friends to sign up for Superbusnet and read it as much as they read this, meaning I could get away with locking down my site to a group of friends if I need to make a friends only post, I'd leave Livejournal - and my own permanent account - in a cocaine heartbeat.

... I did not know that if I looked FURTHER down the sidebar, there was a REGISTER option. Well. I now have an account there and am following the RSS of it!

I saw the "NEW REGISTRATION!" email come in, and went "OK, which spambot am I going to kil-- Ky!?" XD

Now that I'm leaving DHGF, I'll even be able to update it semi-regularly!

You know when someone does something really embarrassing and you can't help but also feel embarrassed and awkward despite not doing anything at all?

Yeah this is one of those times.

This is where my friends are, and so this is where I shall be.
