TALES FROM THE DARK SIDE



Recently, I have been going over to the Dark Side a lot more given that the Light Side is soon to be obliterated! Andrew, the Master of the Dark Side, has very recently posted that the switch to the Dark Side will be very imminent, days not weeks. The switchover is likely to be staggered with some moving over before others.

I have now set up shop over on the Dark Side; I have edited my blog description, uploaded a few photos, created a sticky private mailbox, indexed all my blog posts, set my alerts how I want to be alerted, and checked the blogs I follow here are the ones I follow there.

Though there are other bloggers who are far more expert about the Dark Side, I thought I would share my experiences of my incursions on the Dark Side.

Though slightly different than the Light Side, it is relatively easy to submit a blog post. I had to seek a little advice about how to make links to blog posts, how to make blog posts private and how to make posts sticky. But I got there in the end with very little frustration.

Posts submitted on the Dark Side appear far quicker than they do on the Light Side; here, I can wait for hours before my blog post goes live. The Dark Side is the fast side!

The spellchecker works well on the Dark Side, though unfortunately it is an American English spellcheck but spellchecking long went extinct here on the Light Side.

There are no serious glitches to posts submitted on the Dark Side. Little words do not get stolen and punctuation marks do not get mangled. And there is no need for the obligatory first comment to get my blog posts to register!

I cannot claim to have mastered how to do line-breaks, how to use different colours, how to post emojis, and how to utilise italics, bold and underline but, with the help of others, I will get there!

I found that the list of all blogs I follow here was not successfully migrated over to the Dark Side. About 20 blogs never made it over, but about 30 blogs who I do not follow here are now on my followed list over there. I had to manually add the missing followed blogs, which was a bit of a pain. The way to search for a blog on the Dark Side is by its blog title and not by the username of the blogger. This was a little annoying as I remember usernames far better than blog names. So please think SEXY TIMES and not spunkycumfun if you want to find me over on the Dark Side!

There is very little chance of finding a blogger whose blog is titled My Blog. There are far too many My Blogs; it is like finding a needle in a haystack!

Also what I find on the Dark Side is that it is very busy and bewildering. One advantage of the Light Side here is the menu page of blogland which gives me a quick overview of who has posted, new posts of followed blogs and new comments to my blog posts. The highlights work well here; there are no highlights on the Dark Side.

Over on the Dark Side, when entering you are confronted with an array of lists - new blog posts, popular bloggers, trending bloggers, trending blogs, new blogs, etc. Initially I found I was scrolling down and clicking a lot and generally getting lost down a rabbit hole before having to escape to get my bearings. I now just look at the list of new blog posts to see whether anything takes my fancy. I am not interested in who the popular and trending bloggers are. The Dark Side should stop the unseemly scramble to be top blogger and reduce the potential for blog wars or, at least, should allow you to not witness these shenanigans!

I manage the initial chaos of the Dark Side by my alerts. I am alerted only when a blogger I follow submits a new post and when a blogger comments on my blog posts. I use the alerts as a guide around the Dark Side. I have also followed more bloggers over there so I have more control over what blog posts I read rather than relying on the long and never-ending lists to find a blog post that I may be interested in reading.

On the Dark Side, the many lists of blogs do not indicate the age, gender and sexuality of the bloggers at the outset. I often enter Brit-hating, no-cocks-allowed blog posts written by teenagers! Not really, but I hope you get my drift.

I still cannot understand what the fuss is all about with levels ascribed to bloggers and kudos accrued by bloggers. But no doubt it will become clear. I still have my points; the Master of the Dark Side is not stealing them!

The best thing about the Dark Side, in my opinion, is that it is far more interactive than the Light Side. New blog posts show up very quickly, plus comments and replies to comments on blog posts appear immediately. It is like having a conversation with someone. Here on the Light Side, it is a bit of a hit-and-run and maybe come back much later to continue the discussion. The Dark Side is the live side!

If still on the Light Side, how ready are you for the Dark Side?
If on the Dark Side, is there anything you miss from the Light Side?


Though initially hostile to the Dark Side - well, it was a car crash when first rolled out last year, it has improved greatly largely thanks to the sterling efforts of Andrew. I will be pleased that blogland moves over to the Dark Side because it is time-consuming checking both the Light Side and Dark Side during this interim period.

The Dark Side is dark. Dark is good; light is bad! I have now seen the light and it is dark!

Perhaps naively, I think the Dark Side, especially as it will be opened up to non-members, may be the start of a new golden age for blogland.

This will be my last blog post here on the Light Side. If you want to read my posts, I will be over on the Dark Side. However, I will continue to check in on the Light Side to say hello to my friends here and comment on their blog posts here. But I suspect the Light Side will be soon exterminated by the Master of the Dark Side!

I hope to see you all on the Dark Side. May the Force be with you!

I've just realised that this was my last obligatory first comment. I'm getting a little nostalgic leaving the Light Side!

Yeah, post show up MUCH faster on the dark side, even ones that were posted on the light side get there faster. I noticed this morning that the recent posts list on the light side implies no one has posted since midnight!

I guess you didn't make to my list of followed blogs over there, so I guess I need to add you manually.

As to your main point, I'm ready to move - this working both sides is getting to be too much of a hassle.

Well, That was Mildly Uncomfortable

If still on the Light Side, how ready are you for the Dark Side? - I'm just about ready but still finding it hard to get used too.
If on the Dark Side, is there anything you miss from the Light Side? - When I copy and paste something on the dark side the text is all in one lump! That didn't happen here.

I am LOVING the Dark side and all the new things we can do over there where we could not here. I love that those I hide and block remain so and I am a lot more at peace over there, than I was here. I agree with you that there should not be a trending/nor popular list and have told that to Andrew.There is no need for one at all... See you there as this will be the last time I comment over on this side Hun.xoxo

There is a lot of lumpiness on the Dark Side. I think if you type in [ BR ], without the spaces, that will create a line-break.

It's liklely your list of followed blogs on the Dark Side won't equate with your list here. It's a pain as it takes time, plus a good memory, to update the list of followed blogs.

Great blog about the dark and light side of blog land. As you said there are still many issues which still need to be resolved over on the dark side.

If still on the Light Side, how ready are you for the Dark Side? I have already moved to the
dark side, however, I still blog from the light side as I enjoy that much more.

If on the Dark Side, is there anything you miss from the Light Side? I miss using my colors and my bling as I can't seem to use it there.. And you know how colorful my blogs are..

I sure hope they get all the issues fixed as it's also interfering with the groups, and chat rooms!!

I hope your Monday is a great start to your week..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

I think Andrew is working quite hard to fix the glitches on the Dark Side. There certainly are far fewer glitches over there. It's great just to use the apostrophe without gibberish showing up!

The Dark Side is different but it's not so bad. My only tip is to check that the blogs you follow here are the ones you follow over there. Some go missing in the migration. And I wouldn't want to be missed off your list!
Hope to see you over there!

I was like you. But go over there and you'll probably find that not everything has been migrated over, eg your blog posts. The key is the alerts on the left hand side. This will alert you to every new post a blogger you follow makes and every new comment on your blog posts. There's no highlights, there's alerts.
What I found is that the list of bloggers you follow over here isn't totally migrated over. If not - click followed bloggers on the left hand side to check, just make a note of those bloggers and search them by their blog title (not their username) by clicking blogs and search at the top, and then click follow them.
Posting is quite easy. Just click My Blog on the left hand side and post, with or without photos.
Commenting is easy, just leave a comment on someone's blog post. If they reply to you, you'll be automatically alerted.
The alerts are key in keeping tabs of what's going on over on the Dark Side, unlike the highlihted menu page here.
Good luck with it all, and may the Force be with you!

It's me again. If you don't know how to get over to the Dark Side, just go to the top of the main blogland page and click 'check it out' and the you're in. Any queries, just click 'feedback' and then you're straight through to Andrew, the Master of the Dark Side, to post a query.

Not at all.

Help me...

It seems a jumble to me and I don't know how to do anything there.

Your post here has made me laugh and I sure could use a good laugh now again. Thanks for the information as well.

You know I wish I could blog more. I've just been so depressed and I am having a lot of issues with my hands... typing is a pain, literally.

No worries, hand jobs have not been impaired.

I've made a rare incursion into the Light Side here. I had to get here via my profile's list of activities.
The Dark Side is a jumble. But it works well once familiar with everything.
My advice is to make sure you're following all the blogs you should be and manage things through your Alerts.
On the right hand side of the Dark Side, there's your alerts, your blog, your followed blogs etc.
I hope to see you there.
Sorry to hear you're in pain but it's good you can still give a hand-job!

Will they delete all our other posts? do they have to be moved? You know there are some special ones I made for you and they were a lot of work, manipulating your image wasn't that easy. Oh I'd like to manipulate your.... well, you know. I don't think it would be too easy either...

It may be quite hard... don't ya think?

I love being manipulated especially if it's hard!
All your posts here on the Light Side should be migrated to the Dark Side. If there's any not migrated, just let Andrew know, via feedback, and he'll get them over. About 50 of my posts never made it but Andrew found them and moved them over.
