To clear up confusion

Hello all,

      There's been some concern that the Facebook group 'Future of DearDiary Discussion' may mean that DearDiary is going away. That is not true – DearDiary.Net is not going away, but it will (at some point – I've been promising this for at least 5 years!) be changing in the future.

The current codebase is over 11 years old. It's got none of the modern social media capabilities. It's got none of the 'web 2.0' features. It has to be brought into line with current technologies.

Doing this means some fairly big changes under the hood. The discussion group is a place where people can tell me ahead of time what they like about the new system, what works, what doesn't work, what they desperately don't like etc.

Your millions of words stored in your diaries here are not under threat at all. The way you interact with them may change, but they will always be here 🙂

  1. I understand just what a pain in the butt all this coding means to you, but those of us who have been here for so long really DO appreciate your frustrating, complex, time-consuming work. And we thank you for it.

  2. I can’t click on the help button, it keeps giving me a 404 error. Kabarty Homepage doesn’t work anymore. I’m trying to get in touch to ask why I haven’t been getting notifies for a while. I know you are very busy.

  3. Oh, thank you, thank you! Peace of mind is a wonderful thing… and so is "Dear Diary," just the way it is now (as far as I’m concerned!). I really LOVE it… and I’m glad you helped me feel "safe enough" to keep putting my words, my heart, and my life stories here. Knowing that it WILL be here is indeed a super Christmas gift! So THANK YOU for "Dear Diary," and all the gifts it gives (and keeps on giving!), every day. God bless!

  4. What’s happened to Hamipiks? All the pictures in my diary are broken, and takes me to a debt consolidation website.

    (PS. Help button still isn’t working)
