OK, I know that voice-posts from LJ don't import.

Now I am discovering that YouTube embeds don't seem to import either. I use a lot of those, so is there a trick to embedding here? I just use the embed option at YouTube under "share", so I did not think that was an LJ code.

I would like to post here more often, but I obviously am missing some information. Any help here?

ETA: Another question: the other day, it took about an hour to import of about two years worth of LJ posts. Last night I tried to import about two days worth, and it is still running this morning. I'm afraid to interrupt it, but if it's still running when I get home from work, I might have to.

Any suggestions?

I always post from DW and never had any issues.
I click on "share", then on "embed" and then copy the code that appears. I always add this in the HTML editor window (since for most kinds of code it's better to post them in the HTML view anyway, on LJ as well as on DW). There is another option in the rich text editor, but that doesn't seem to work, I just checked. Maybe it's a new bug or a known issue; I've never used it this way before so I don't know.

Edit: FYI you haven't added me here yet.

The import queues are currently enormous, i had one that took almost 24 hours. Hang in there, it will eventually finish.

I fully agree! There have been times when it took even longer, because the servers responded more slowly or so. I'm in awe that we didn't have any downtime already with the newest run onto DW. ;o)

Baranduin, since I see you here: we're about to bring read_lotr_aloud out of the unplanned hiatus of last year and are planning our next reading. I'm also doing backups of all the old readings, and just saw that you deletd your LJ, so all your readings are lost. Do you happen to have any of them stored elsewhere?

Oh I am so sorry! I never did that. My apologies for not thinking of that. Good luck with the restart!

What a pity! We've lost quite a few readings through deleted journals. Thank you for your wishes, I hope we can keep up with it until we're through with LotR.

If I undelete for a bit this weekend, should I try to round them up and send them to you?

That would be awesome, of course! I don't know if the voice posts would be still there, but if they are, I could also just go trough all the reading entries, save the recordings, and let you know once I'm done.
Thank you already so much!

I will go on a spelunking expedition this weekend and see what I can find.

No, of course you don't have to keep your computer on. ;o) And it's no surprise that the import is still running; just imagine the amount of entries and comments you have in your journal!
It also doesn't matter if the import is still running or not, as long as you don't touch anything that you've set to be imported - like, don't edit your profile page until it's been imported, or your tags, or so. But you can use your DW also during the imports and write new entries. You'll need to keep in mind that currently, a huge number of imports are started all the time, because everybody and their dog suddenly does them. Servers and the systems on which the site is running do have their limits, too. It's a marvel that we didn't have any downtime so far! :D In January, when the first rush-in came after the move of LJ to Russia, DW's servers were struggling a bit - quite understandably.

My imports are taking forever too. My fic journal still hasn't imported from last night, and even then, I'm most likely going to have to go through each entry manually and correct links and add icons.
