As most of you know, we have a sister site at Teen Open Diary, which I have been (trying) to operate along with OD for the last few years. Recently, I have come to the conclusion that there is not enough time in the day or resources available to be able to maintain TOD along with all the work I am doing here at Open Diary.
As a result, I have made the decision to shut down the TOD site, so that I can concentrate more time and effort here. TOD has actually been offline for most of the last month, as I rearranged servers and moved things around to prepare for a migration here.
The good news is that none of the diaries on the TOD servers have been removed - all of the entries and notes remain, and can be brought here for continued use. What I'm asking is this: if you have been a TOD user, and you want to preserve the entries and notes from your TOD diary, I would like you to import them into an existing diary here at OD. At OD, you will have more features, better service, and more reliable servers - overall, a much better experience for everybody.
If you want to bring your TOD diary here, the first step is to start a new OD diary (if you don't have one). Then, go to the OD front page and click the link at the bottom of the page for the TOD diary import. After that, follow the directions to import your entries and notes into your OD diary. The TOD entries will appear at the beginning of your diary, and any existing entries will be moved so they appear after them.
If you have an existing diary, but you don't want to put the TOD entries at the beginning of them, you can also start another diary just to import the TOD entries into. This way, they will be preserved on this site.
I will be retaining the TOD database for several months, even though the site will be inactive. This will give anybody who is interested the chance to bring their diary here.
