Remember throughout the years as folks lost journals .. either they just disappeared or were deleted in error? Remember how they were told there was nothing AOL could do? LIES! Not that it matters now, but low and behold during this transfer to blogger they've now been able to restore deleted journals, restore lost comments. How is that? Because it was always available but the techs or powers that be could care less or were to damn lazy.
I am thrilled that so many were able to move their journals without issues. I'm even thrilled that those that had issues over and over could finally move them. Mine and lots and lots of other large journals are being hung out to dry. Literally I'm afraid. In two weeks this community will gone and so many journals will go poof along with it. I've been told for 3 days they are working on it. AOL nor Blogger can seem to fix the issue. How is that this issue wasn't tested in the past months as they decided to do this? In my opinion.. no one cared. They figured several would move and folks would be happy. They'd have empathy for those that it didn't work for but in a few days it would all be forgotten. AOL and blogger did wondrous things to try and make it work for all. :::cough cough::: I don't buy it. I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but damn what did they use to test the system?
Ya know, I was only going to use this as an archive anyway so I guess no one really cares. My issue now is what size limit is there at blogger? I've got roughly 1900 entries here, and lots of graphics. In the transfer I can't get half way. Believe me I tried. I let it sit there doing nothing for over 5 hours. Nothing changed, nothing happened, nothing went to blogger. Does that mean at 800 entries in blogger I will be done? We will be done? Will I not be able to put in graphics, will you not be able to? I'm not familiar enough with it, but seems to me if there is no limit both large and small journals should make the move easily. Not happening and they know it.
Speaking out will not help my cause, I know. But WTF!?!?! They need to do something for those that have their lives on their journal. The count down has begun...........
