I am overseeing the due South Fandom Programming hour at Vividcon this year and could use your help deciding how to focus it. Come help me decide? There's a description of what I'm considering plus a poll at my DW account here.

Hi, guys. So, those of you who have attended VividCon in the past will recall that our con suite abounds with delicious homemade baked goods, with something bound to please every nearly every sweet-loving palate and including gluten-free, vegan, nut free, and diabetic-friendly options. In recent years, this has been due to the baking talents of the marvelous [personal profile] se_parsons, may her name live forever in glory alongside her VividCon baking predecessor, [personal profile] amilyn!

Wonderfully for her but sadly for us, [personal profile] se_parsons's many talents are in heavy demand elsewhere and she no longer has time to even attend VividCon, let alone bake dozens of batches of delicious cookies and quick breads for our con suite. We wish her the best of luck in every endeavor!

So...we are looking for a way of continuing VividCon's tradition of delicious home-made baked goods in the con suite. Read on for two proposals/calls for volunteer(s) and please consider whether you might be willing and able to come to the aid of your con in either of these capacities:

1. Be the new VividCon Baker! - In this volunteer position you would prepare and deliver to the con hotel (or make available for pick up in the Chicagoland area) approximately 20 batches (40 dozen servings) of homemade baked goods in a variety of flavors, with about half meeting some special dietary need (gluten free, nut, free, vegan, etc.). Our recipes or yours, the exact details are negotiable. VividCon will reimburse for the cost of the ingredients used in preparation of these baked goods, plus we offer a free attending membership and 2 extra copies of the con DVD set (bringing your total to 3 sets), also for free.

No, seriously, that is the arrangement we had with [personal profile] se_parsons and, as far as I know, with [personal profile] amilyn before her. Can you believe it? Is there yet *another* vid fan and obsesso baker out there within driving distance of VividCon who is willing to do so much for the love of both hobbies??? If it's you, please contact ASAP!!!

Aaaaaand just in case lightning doesn't strike THREE times in the same spot, a back-up plan...

2. Join the inaugural VividCon Baking Team - We divide up the work, we collaborate on the array of baked goods, and together we feed the con! I'm thinking 4-8 bakers each preparing 3-6 batches (6-10 dozen servings), depending on the size of the team, and we could get this done. No memberships comped on this one, sorry, but we can help defray ingredient costs and toss in one extra copy of the con DVD per baking team member. I've even placed all the recipes se_parsons was actively using in a private wiki so the baking team has a place to share and add recipes and collab on how to divvy up the baking. If you would be willing to join the VividCon Baking Team, please email ASAP!!!

I hope that we can continue our delicious con suite tradition with either of the approaches I've laid out above. I'll see what kind of responses I receive between now and June 15th and decide how to handle things from there. Unless responses are fast and a decision can be made earlier!

In conclusion, YOUR DISCO NEEDS YOU!, where for "DISCO" substitute "BAKED GOODS" or "CON SUITE" or "VIVIDCON" or whatever motivates 1-8 of you to become involved. Thank you!!!

The Wiki Committee has an exciting announcement!

A few months ago, Fanlore was approached by the Library of Congress for permission to preserve Fanlore as a part of their American Folklife Center's ongoing digital culture web archiving project. We are thrilled to have been chosen for the project!

The American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress is working to archive and preserve the diverse expression of folk culture currently on the web. Some other sites that have recently been archived include Urban Dictionary, Know Your Meme, and the Lolcat Bible. Fanlore's inclusion in the Library of Congress project emphasizes the fact that fan history is a significant part of folklore and culture in the United States and across the world.

If you are a Fanlore contributor of any kind, there is absolutely no need to be concerned about attribution of your work. Fanlore's Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial license will still be in effect, and displayed on the archived version of Fanlore available to researchers (and eventually to the public) through the Library of Congress.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send them to the Wiki Committee!
