Everybody listen up, TechCrunch says all signs point to "yes" that Yahoo! is shutting down Delicious. If you, like me, more or less live on Delicious (both for your fandom experience or otherwise) this is a heads up to pack up your shit and get ready to move house.

On the most basic level, this is a way to export your Delicious links.

There are a couple of alternatives to delicious, [personal profile] mklutz tried out Diigo. And then we both panicked and got pinboard.in accounts -- which explains partly why the servers are in the process of crashing like a motherfucker. I'm in the process of importing my delicious links there, and obviously my delicious account is still working, but if you wanted to find me or already are on pinboard and wanted to add me to your network: http://pinboard.in/u:pru

Fuck Yahoo. Those motherfuckers ruin everything.

Why'd you go over to Pinboard instead of Diigo?

I *knew* this would happen when they were bought by yahoo. Excuse me as I go over here and cry quietly to myself.

Yeah, I signed up for a Pinboard account as well and I can hear the servers crying for mercy.

buggeration. Thanks for the heads-up.

I like the look of Diigo. (also, free. Always good.)

...No, on second thought it should just be Carol Bartz's overpaid ass on the line here.

Well, damn. Thanks for the heads up. I just headed to Pinboard and am now contributing to the massive server overload.

If you'd like to add me to your network, here you go: http://pinboard.in/u:indybear

I'll probably check out Diigo, too, just for redundancy.

Yahoo sucks (and not in a good way).

Just found out about this myself. Have set up a Diigo account since it's free, and am waiting for it to import the 750+ bookmarks from my delicious account. I thought about trying pinboard, but I can't really afford the added expense (slight as it is) right now.

The AO3 is already working on their bookmarking functionality and a way for people to import their delicious bookmarks there. Hopefully it will be possible soon. :-)

I'm still just shrieking. I always have at least five delicious tabs open, and then another fifty tabs opened through links I found on delicious. That little white-blue-black-grey box has been part of my daily fucking life since, like, 2004. WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK AM I GOING TO DO NOW OH MY GOD AAAAAAAAAUGH ----

Hahaha I just went over to Pinboard, and here's a good measure of how many people are DDOS'ing it: the sign-up fee is users X .001; the fee descriptor in their FAQ says it should be about $6 and now it's $8.26. So they've had over a 25% increase in user base since they put up the "us or delicious" post. LOL.
