Why Aren't People Commenting on My Post/Story/Whatever?
15% were planning to get back to that post later. It's open! It's in a tab! Or it's in Read Later!, busy, you know how it is. (Of course, if you're counting every comment and comparing it to a master list, maybe you don't know how it is. In that case you'll just have to trust me.)

How Dreamwidth today is different from Livejournal fifteen years ago.
Then strikethrough happened, and blah blah blah, at the end of the day, fandom decided that having a central fic archive where we owned the servers was probably a really good idea (this left, and has always left, fan artists and vidders out in the cold, but it worked really well for fic). More and more people joined AO3 and posted fic there, fewer and fewer bothered crossposting it to comms on LJ. The transition happened slowly, but it did happen. Now you didn't need to be on an LJ comm to find fic, you could just go on AO3, and fan artists had started to decamp to other places where they got more eyes on their stuff. Comms started to slow down.

Porn Is Becoming Taboo Again
After decades of helping to define the internet, porn seems to be on the verge of becoming taboo again, pushed out of the public eye and segregated into the dark, seedy corners of the internet. For those who’ve long been accustomed to adult content having free reign of the internet, it’s a shift that feels dramatic and sudden. And yet the truth is that these changes are the result of a slowly building backlash, one that’s been gaining ground for years.

In Loving Memory: Everway
Everway is billed as “Visionary Roleplaying” for its use of images and symbols. The more obvious parts are the images in Vision Cards and the Fortune Deck, as well as the character sheets.

Neil Gaiman's Journal: Tonight Live Streaming, and, hitherto unseen, a poem (unfinished)

I can't get into Heaven, 'cos of all that I've done wrong
And I can't get into Hell because the lines are far too long.
