I'm not cross-posting this, because it's Dreamwidth-specific stuff.

1. I made a community! Probably a very low traffic one, but I felt Dreamwidth needed a Danielewski community, therefore: [community profile] navidsonrecord.

2. I love that the maximum username length has been extended to... is it twenty-five characters, I think? This opens up so many possibilities for community and user names. (I did consider going with [profile] wehauefoundftaires for the above, but...)

3. I have no idea yet what my "circle policy" is going to be. I've subscribed to a whole load of people who look interesting, but haven't put anyone on my "access list" except friends I've known for quite a while via other sites. I suppose since I don't plan to make a lot of locked posts at all, it doesn't make a huge difference; I might very well just stick everyone onto my "access list", so I can occasionally lock posts down that contain personal information but people can still read them. Or perhaps I'll just wait until the "hm, do I want to lock this?" issue actually arises. I don't know. This is a whole new interesting social-networking dilemma, hm. :) What are other people doing about this?

I'm going to have to wait to see who I subscribe/have access to and vice versa, before I end up with a locking policy here (right now, I've got like two people in my circle who would normally be able to read all my locked posts on LJ). My LJ was default flocked for a while, but I just started breaking out of that, so things are a bit up in the air anyway. Given that sometimes I blog about personal things like mental illness and my asshole parents, or generally talk about RL things that I don't want just anyone to be able to read, there'll always be some locked posts, both at LJ and here.

One effect of the subscribe/access set-up here is that I'll probably subscribe to people for a while before I give them access. This is the sort of thing I might have done more of at LJ, but setting up filters and adjusting them as you add new people is a pain.

On LJ, I usually just f-lock anything with personally identifiable information on it, and use filters for the controlling-who-sees-what part. For now I'm taking more or less the same approach here and just giving access to everyone I subscribe to. I've imported all my filters, and I'm hoping that'll work as smoothly here as it does over there.

(Possibly it may be silly to stick with my LJ strategy when Dreamwidth has gone out of its way to engineer things so that you can subscribe without giving access, but I am a habitty, habit-bound creature of habit.)

I've joined your community!

I'm thinking that I'll have people I consider friends on my access list, but just subscribe to people that I want to watch, but don't consider myself that close to. I have a tendency of locking most things, anyway, for various reasons, heh. :3
