A couple of days ago I asked CSJewel for an invitation and opened an account on DreamWidth. I am still a bit lost as I have no idea how to get connected to people and how to ask questions so that people will actually see it and answer it, but people started to help me so I am making some progress.
I am not yet sure if it is a good idea or not but I created a community called Padre, the Perl IDE on Dreamwidth so DW users can discuss anything about Padre. The interesting thing is that the length of the title was limited so I could not type in Perl Application Development and Refactoring Environment. Therefore I am using a shorter title and I think I'll file a bug report.
If I was already into community accounts I went over to LiveJournal where I have a dormant account and created a community for Padre there as well. Interestingly at LJ the length of the community name was restricted to 15 characters so I could not use the same community name as on DW. I had to go with Padre, Perl IDE. At least on LJ I could type in the full title of the community.
Anyway, if you are a Dreamwidth or LiveJournal user, please drop by and say hi to me over there.
