It looks like I imported from LJ all posts as of December 2013. That means that I am missing some posts, specifically....8.

At that point I can just create new backdated posts and copy and paste, right? I don't particularly plan to start posting again, but I will read the ol' flist here.

Sure, or you can use the importer. Or not.

Thanks for reading! I would certainly enjoy any updates you might like to post now and in the years to come.

Yeah, and you can grab access to your LJ openid after you've imported, so that your old comments will show up as being from DW you. It seemed to be really easy to use.

I think the idea is that if I commented on your post at LJ, then when you import it to DW, the comment will show up as OpenID User irilyth.livejournal.com; and likewise if *you* commented on your own post at LJ, it'll show up as a comment from OpenID User uncleamos.livejournal.com. If you "claim your LJ OpenID", that's a way of telling Dreamwidth that you at DW are the same person as uncleamos.livejournal.com, such that your comments on your imported LJ posts will show up as being made by DW User uncleamos rather than LJ anything.

It's possible that this also works for other people -- I've claimed my LJ OpenID on DW, do comments that I had made on your imported LJ posts show up as OpenID User irilyth.livejournal.com or as DW User irilyth?

ETA: Aha, indeed, https://uncleamos.dreamwidth.org/513781.html shows comments from me and Noda with our DW usernames, and other people with their LJ OpenID names. I bet if those people claim their OpenID names at DW, it'll change.

I'm a little bit hesitant to do this because Dreamwidth is still having issues with usernames that have underscores.
rose_garden on lj appears as rose-garden on dreamwidth.
