What's Up With DW?

Is anyone else out there having a hard time importing content from LJ to DW? I'm trying to update mine and Sick Wilson's and it's taking forever.

There's been a mass migration due to the whole Russian thing, and it should improve soon. This has happened before when DW gets a sudden flood of new users and/or people importing content. It just slows everything way down for a while.

Oh, thanks. Makes sense. I've been thinking along the same lines though there's no House community activity over there that I've ever seen.

Yeah, it's a huge influx of new users -- I saw the numbers a few days ago and it's pretty impressive. I've been around DW when this has happened before, during LJ outages or after they'd made yet another ridiculously bad decision. The site works fine but importing of content slows way down due to the unusual load on the servers.
