[personal profile] morgandawn is looking for old Xena vids to help preserve fannish history!
" I'd like to help build up more Xena content on Fanlore. To do this I need vids. Preference is for older Xena fanvids - yes those really old 6MB rmb (Real Player) or wmv (wndows media) files. Most likely these vids will no longer be available online . If you have any vids downloaded and squirreled away and are willing to share them (via one to one upload or by USB/disc), ping me at morgandawn @ We hopefully will have a good enough cross-section to create pages on Fanlore. If we get enough pages we can create a Xena Fanvid category on Fanlore . (Note: we will not be uploading the vids to Fanlore - the copies will be used to help the editors add the pages. Also Fanlore cannot host vids so there's that.....).

I am also looking for people to create fanvid pages on Fanlore for under represented fandoms. It can be done at your own pace and all you need to do is copy and paste a template (and of course fill out the fields- vidder name, vid title etc)." 

So this is NOT about uploading vids anywhere without the vidder's permission - this is about documenting those older vids on Fanlore, which I am so very much in favor of, and I've already messaged Morgan.

I looked and I have a whole bunch of old Xena vids - most of them I don't even remember, but some I remember so fondly! Matt Savelkoul's con vids were great, particularly "Discotheque", and the "She Bangs" vid by another vidder where Xena breathes fire in time to the music.

I was never a 'vidder' nor a Xena fan but I have been uploading 15 year old Hercverse stories to AO3. My new computer is finally compatible with their miserable system. I made one poor fan very happy who had been looking for 'new' stories. Well, mine aren't new but she hadn't read them.

Odd that neither Herc nor Xena is rerun much. I wonder if the producers are at fault or someone else.
