Hey, I was just wondering if there is any client available to import all your entries into another lj?
I have read in the FAQ that LJ doesn't support this, but maybe there is a client that can help?

Many thanks, Siantelle

any clues on a tool that would preserve all the comments?

could I archive everything through semagic and then point it at isanejournal?

the reason this community is going to get slammed

Alas, while you can download comments through the LJ API, I know of no way to *post* comments through the LJ API. (And if you are migrating journals, it sort of makes sense as user IDs are not going to map well from system to system.)

Transferring posts is another story, and in light of recent issues, is something I should look at allowing LJ-Sec to do. One thing I could do is concatenate all comments into the post text itself, which while not idea would preserve some semblance of the journal entry.
