because i forgot to update: the fest comms [community profile] hd_level_two , [community profile] teddyjamesbb , [community profile] nextgen_mas  and [community profile] rs_collab  are now fully backed up on dreamwidth! everything sorted! i've also talked to my co-mod and we might revive [community profile] nextgen_mas  this year (decisions to be made closer to the time when we know better what our schedules are like). 

i've had a poke around HP fest communities on dreamwidth as there seems to be a good number of them, but many of them aren't active or haven't been updated in a while?? does anyone know which HP fests are currently active on dreamwidth (and not just LJ)? I'd like to subscribe to them because remembering to check LJ fest comms for updates is not something i'm remembering to do, but it seems pointless to subscribe to the DW comms if they aren't going to actually post... 

which HP comms are you following here on DW?

oh, i'd love for [community profile] nextgen_mas to come back!

of all the comms i follow here, these are the ones i see regularly on my feed: [community profile] daily_snitch, [community profile] quibbler_report, [community profile] hp_fanworks, [community profile] hp_nextgen100, [community profile] my_drarry_recs... [community profile] hp_may_madness is coming back this year and it'll happen on dw.

the one fest i'm looking forward this year is [community profile] hp_nextgen_fest but i don't think it'll be on dw, so i'll probably follow on ao3.

I have a serious lack of hp comms on my DW reading list as well. One of the reasons I have not deleted my LJ is that I made a filter there to check out the comms.
I don't know much about modding, but [personal profile] gracerene said in a post that a lot of the functions that might be needed for scheduling posts in a fest comm are missing on DW, so that might be a reason.

Also giving my vote for [community profile] nextgen_mas to come back. ♥

If everyone keeps half a leg over on LJ moving the fandom over will be much harder...
I think so too. The last time people mass moved to DW (I think it was for extended downtime reasons?), I thought "why are you all scattering fandom over several different platforms when there aren't as much people around anymore, instead of combining forces?". Also never understood why daily_deviant had to be on insanejournal - I always forgot to follow that comm. Well, now I think EVERYONE should move here (TOS only in Cyrillic, severs in Russia?! come on it's a thing on principle!), but I heard a lot of other people say that they don't want to and have the same sentiment I used to have. Soo, idk. For now I will crosspost but read and comment on DW first.

I hope they get that scheduling feature online soon too, but I think they've been saying that since 2013? I know that things go a little slower on DW and I'm fine with it, but in the last week there were a few things where I thought "but THAT one I'd like right now please". :D
