+ The user name tag: I don't have to differentiate communities from personal journals, and I can easily switch it to link to non-DW journals!

+ Being able to insert ?show=P, ?show=C, and ?show=F at the end of my reading list URL without needing to make special filters.

+ Long character lengths in both comments and posts.

+ The update date button! I like posting every day, so sometimes, if I'm writing a post just before midnight, I like to update to make sure the post when I post the next day.

+ The existence of both the diversity statement and the guiding principles, the fact the site-runners follow them diligently, and the community that's built up as a result. I feel like a person on DW, and that's really nice. ♥

The user name tag: I don't have to differentiate communities from personal journals

I'm not sure what site you're coming from, but on LiveJournal, you haven't had to differentiate communities from personal journals for years -- <lj user="bla"> would show the correct icon no matter whether "bla" was a personal journal, community, syndicated account, news journal, or bizarro account type from outer space.

and I can easily switch it to link to non-DW journals!

LJ doesn't have that - I'll give you that :D

Being able to insert ?show=P, ?show=C, and ?show=F at the end of my reading list URL without needing to make special filters.

Also on LiveJournal for quite some time. (At least P and C; I don't know about F for sure... if it means "feeds", I think it's called ?show=Y on LiveJournal, possibly as in sYndicated account.)

Perhaps LiveJournal needs some PR for lesser-known options :)

I adore the tag for linking to non-DW journals. Adore.
