Community Moving

Greetings community members.

As many of you are now aware, Livejournal has transferred complete ownership and control over to their Russian counterpart company (a move we all knew would happen eventually, when they were bought out a few years ago) and updated their Terms and Conditions to force anyone using the platform to comply with Russian law regarding content, publication and speech.

This makes the content of this community questionable at best and obscene at worst. The site admins could, at any time, decide to simply delete this (and similar) fandom communities without notice. Also, related to the control move, Livejournal lost its SSL status earlier this week (it is currently restored, however that is always subject to change,) meaning that it could begin carrying malicious software and become vulnerable to a multitude of other threats.

With these issues in mind, tfic-contest is moving completely to Dreamwidth as of this week.

I have spent the last month contemplating a permanent move as my fellow mods and I scrambled to back up communities and duplicate content. We refused to let them shut down our fandom and erase our history, but it is in the best interest of the fandom to move the community to a safer platform. Tfic-contest has only recently been available over there but it has been backed up, with all posts copied over, comments preserved and tags imported. And, while this community will be officially closed it will not be deleted.

Starting from today, tfic-contest will be available exclusively on However, in case of any new posts happening here on Livejournal, the DW community will back up once a month to preserve them, just in case.

If you are not a DW member, fear not! Joining is free, does not currently require an invite code and runs very much like livejournal. You can even copy over your own personal LJ account and preserve your journal.

So, my fellow fans, as much as it pains me to finally turn off the lights in this creaky old LJ, I hope that you’ll move with us to Dreamwidth and that we can keep having the good times. And even if you don’t come with us, thank you for what you did share.
