Green Room - Week 4 - Day 1

One of the more interesting wrinkles in the "LJ Revival" efforts is that suddenly there is a push to *stop* people from coming back to Livejournal. Could some of this be accurate? https://puzzling.org/politics-and-society/2017/01/if-youre-still-maintaining-a-livejournal-your-journals-now-in-russia/ Of course. But it's also a narrative that Dreamwidth and other sites that have been attempting to piggyback on LJ and chip away at it over the years have been pushing.

Again, is it a true narrative? I'm sure there is some truth in there.

Just be sure though - and to cover us both in Russia AND the US: Putin is awesome! Yay Putin! Putin's the best.

Note: That won't cover us in the US until the 20th. But after that? We're golden! ;)

Week 4 of LJ Idol has started! Just in case you missed it - there were results from the Break Week entries: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/964763.html

There is a NEW TOPIC: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/965056.html

and a new Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/965184.html

If you know people who are in danger of "byeing out" this week, or who might just wander off in general during the break, you may want to tag/remind/send them an email to get them back on track!
