jenna_marianne: line drawing of a badger with the text "Why does delicious think I'm a badger?" (delicious badger)
Thanks to [personal profile] sineala's post here (and someone linking me via pinboard), I got a heads up that Delicious is displaying the full name in your account publicly.

For some people, its no big deal, since they entered a psued/initials/their username, but for others it looks like their RL name is now displayed for all to see connected to their delicious username (which is frequently their fandom psued) and perhaps their fandom presence if they've linked to their LJ or other website.

Make sure to check your delicious account, and ensure your privacy! From comments in the post I referenced, it sounds like you have to overwrite the current name entered with something else to remove the name.

Pondering more and more just deleting my delicious, instead of letting it stay to preserve the data. I already *only* use pinboard for my personal bookmarks (though still use delicious for a comm). Hmmm.

Still really not liking the new delicious. I do have to say that after doing some bookmarks yesterday there (for the first time since right after the new site came up), they have made some good fixes to the interface (Yay tag auto-completion). It's just that it's still inferior to the previous incarnation.

I really miss the old network view. Are they ever bringing that back? I don't think they've answered that.

Bundles are back, but last I checked the site couldn't handle my larger bundles (like the Stargate bundle, which possibly has several hundred tags for fandom-specific pairings, genres and fic series) and it just never loads.

I'm really liking pinboard more and more. Sadly, the site was down for a few minutes. But how can you get upset, when if you click on Maciej's twitter, you're seeing real-time commentary on him working to get it up and running (he and Linux are "going to have to have a little chat"). Also, he had a temporary page up with the text "Pinboard is Down. We are working to fix things. Please check our Twitter account (@Pinboard) for the latest status updates." and a picture of boxer being knocked out by Ali. :D

Also, there are some new opt-in privacy settings to both "Let people see if I subscribe to them" and "Let other people see my entire network." You can see my network, if you're interested in how it looks, here:

I can't wait to see what pinboard rolls out next!

jenna_marianne: (You Make The Internet Sad)
So, yahoo is going to shut delicious down (post at cnet).

[ETA: Yahoo Trying To Unload Del.icio.us, Not Shut It Down]

I am very sad about this; RIP delicious, and links to alternatives and discussion )

[This post is, in part, a way for me to keep track of all this, so I'll probably update it again if I find out more info.]

[ETA: 12/17/10 to add links to various discussions and fix some spelling issues]

So I just reached 6,666 bookmarks on my delicious. Woo hoo!

That's a whole lot of fic reading!
