I renewed my Dreamwidth subscription not too long ago. Here are some reasons why:

  • Poll answers display percentages for ticky boxes in a way that doesn't make me want to cry. People should be response units, not boxes ticked!

  • Code tours: I may not understand everything, but they are fun to read.

  • Sensible and easy cross-posting to my now-basic Livejournal account, 'cause I still like all you non-migrant friends.

  • They generally seem to care about accessibility, standards and all that good stuff.

  • I haven't noticed a spam problem. Sure, this might be just a small target thing like Apple at 3% market share had, but it's nice however it happened.

  • Cut expansion in place: works just like drilling down folders or getting extra settings in a dialog box, and keeps the number of tabs down in my browser.

  • Probably not evil.

  • No ads, and an explicitly-stated business plan for not having ads.

I've drunk the Kool-Aid. Dreamwidth is better. I just wish more of my friends would make the leap.
