I deleted my LiveJournal. I guess I have 60 days to reactivate if I discover I missed anything in the import, but everything seems okay.

Still, I kind of gulped when I hit the delete button.

Did you do the OpenID account merge?

Did you do the OpenID account merge?

Yes, because it doesn't just affect comments imported into your own journal; it affects comments left anywhere on Dreamwidth, including other people's imported comments. By transferring them all to your Dreamwidth account, the OpenID merge means someone could find you from an interesting comment you left on a friend's imported journal, as opposed to finding only your deleted journal at the end of the link. Since I will soon no longer have my LJ, it seemed a useful way both of tying off loose ends and making myself findable on Dreamwidth. [edit] Example.

I guess I'll need to wait a couple of days to redelete to make sure everything updates properly.

It seems to have done all thirteen years of my journal within a couple of hours. Here's the import of my very first LJ entry (waaaah!) with merged account in comments.

YES. Still have a moment, once in a while, although I was mostly relieved when it was gone.

It's awfully tough. But I think most of us are here.

And DW's bustling a little bit! I love the impromptu parties in the recent news comments.
