I spent last night downloading backups of the two comms I mod, plus my own journal. What’s sad is that, while you can retrieve the original posts, the comments — the thing that makes a community a community– doon’t come along. I’m hoping that LJ will add the comments to the backup capabilities someday, but I wouldn’t expect it.
Although none of my friends or comms list any of the currently EBUL interests, who knows what the next panic button will be– Aardvaarks perhaps. Therefore, I will continue to keep backups. One more administrative task on my plate.
One thing the download experience told me; “What are you” quizzes and other memes of that nature do not stand the test of time. Like potato chips, you don’t want to see them come back up…0 Give Kudos?
