It's time for a change of venue.
AGH, WHY DO NEW RP GAMES EVEN BOTHER OPENING AT LJ ANYMORE?!
It is now the glitchiest site I've ever had the displeasure of using, and I use Plurk on a regular basis, so that's saying something. I can understand not wanting to ship an old game somewhere else because of history and convenience, but for a new game, you have options now. Insanejournal only glitches for about 15 seconds at a time these days, and then it's back up on its feet. And it gives you a shitton of icons, so you don't have to pay for the privelige of the site dicking you around. I get that those kinds of journaling sites might seem risky after so many have collapsed in the past, but the payoff of (supposed) security just isn't enough to outweigh the annoyances.
Dreamwidth has the code issue (and I don't know how they feel about RPs), but I see codes floating around the internet like flyers dropped from an airplane whenever LJ does something stupid, so they're not that hard to come by. Some people are even RPing on Tumblr, although I'll never really get that, because I'll never really get Tumblr. BUT IT'S ANOTHER OPTION.
Asgard, you sound wonderful, and I am deeply excited to app to you. But getting my character journal up and running this morning has been about as pleasant as a root canal without freezing, and if the site keeps being this terrible, I may not stay long. Next time, take the game elsewhere and I'll be right with you.
EDIT: Apparently the recent glitchiness is another DDoS attack, so that's what I get for getting my sick, cranky rant on without checking the facts. I thought it was still issues around that last disastrous software update. As you were, everyone, the fail is all mine here.
