That's it! Our first (hopefully) annual June Bloom is coming to an end. For four weeks we've been adding new pages, and celebrating different aspects of Fandom. It's been truly amazing and we want to thank all of you for participating! We hope our weekly themes helped you decide what part of fandom to explore and preserve.

Those of you who haven't yet added to the June Bloom page extravaganza, don't worry! The last two days of June are what we dubbed as Free For All! Create a page for anything and anyone you want preserved on Fanlore. Go on a page creation spree. Look at your fandoms and ask yourself: "Does this have a page on Fanlore?" If the answer is NO, then FIX IT!

And remember: Fanlore is a wiki, so you don't need to write out an in-depth article. Someone else will come along to polish things up and flesh things out. By simply creating a stub you will contribute in nurturing of fandom flower!

Need more inspiration? Check out Fanlore's Wish List. Not sure how to get started? See Help:Tutorial and Help:Starting a new page.

Once again: Thank you, for making Fanlore so great!

Hello, Dreamwidth! Greetings from Portland, where Dreamwidth has assembled for this year's Open Source Bridge. (Which remains my favorite conference ever for how wonderfully welcoming and diverse it is.)

Behind the cut:

* A fond farewell
* HTTPS
* Email woes: mostly fixed
* Multiple sticky entries
* Rescreening screened comments when they're edited
* Other new features and tweaks
* Pretty pretty pictures

Friday 26 June 2015 )

That's it from us for another update! As always, if you're having problems with Dreamwidth, Support can help you; for notices of site problems and downtime, check the Twitter status page; if you've got an idea to make the site better, you can make a suggestion. (I'm still a lot behind on the suggestions queue, though, just as a warning.)

Comment notifications may be delayed for up to an hour or two, due to the high volume of notifications generated after an update is posted to [site community profile] dw_news. This was posted at 5:45PM PDT (see in your time zone). Please don't worry about delayed notifications until at least two hours after that.

We will be performing tonight's code push in a few minutes. There'll be a brief downtime, but not longer than a few minutes. (Ideally, that is.)

I'll update this entry when we're back, and people can report issues here.

EDIT: New code is live! Please report any issues here.

We're currently having an issue with the image proxy for accessing the site via HTTPS -- images are currently failing to load. We'll have that fixed as soon as we can.

Code push Thursday

We are currently planning a code push for about 18 hours from now (the night of Thursday 25 June). We'll probably begin around 9PM Pacific time, although it might be a bit later. As always, we'll update here and our Twitter offsite status when we begin.

Ride the llama!

Or, in a more accurate metaphor, help to feed, groom, exercise, and snuggle the llama!

Vividcon couldn't happen without the many members who volunteer for an hour or two during the weekend, helping with everything from minding the vidshow room to collecting the Saturday lunch tickets. Volunteering is a great way to meet people, get involved, and ensure that things run smoothly for everyone -- not to mention get a look at the seamy underside of con running! [Spoiler: not actually all that seamy.] Please consider joining the team!

If you indicated on your registration form that you'd like to volunteer, you should have received an email from me with information. If you didn't get it, please check your spam folder; it was BCC:ed to everyone, which occasionally causes problems. If you still don't see it -- or if you didn't initially offer to help but now think you might like to! -- please drop me a line at the.shoshanna@gmail.com, contact me through the con website by choosing "volunteering" from the topic dropdown, or comment here with an email address I can reach you at, and I'll send you info right away.

And if you didn't volunteer because you haven't registered for the con, it's not too late...

June Bloom is slowly coming to an end, so with the final week, we want to focus on what really gets the fandom going: the fans! It's the fans who write fanfic, make fanart, create fanvids. There would be no meta, cosplay, picspams, or any kind of fanworks for fandom to enjoy! So this week, we want to celebrate the people who have made your fandom experience so amazing.

Tell us about the fans who introduced you to your fandoms with their primers, or gifsets on Tumblr. Share the authors and vidders who made fanworks that resonated with you. Do you have your favorite fanfic writers or vidders? Do you love reading meta essays from particular people? Make sure they have a page on Fanlore!

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • What vidders are you subscribed to on YouTube?
  • Who wrote that fic you always reread?
  • What thematic Tumblr blog do you love the most?
  • Do you remember who ran the first LJ community you joined or the first Yahoo! mailing list?


Which fans shaped your fandom experience? Tell us about them: don't let them be forgotten!

Finally, it's good to remember Fanlore is a wiki, so you don't need to write out an in-depth article: someone else will come along to polish things up and flesh things out. By simply creating a stub you will contribute in nurturing of fandom flower!

Need more inspiration? Check out Fanlore's Wish List. Not sure how to get started? See Help:Tutorial and Help:Starting a new page.

Let us know in the comments about the pages you've made, and spread the love!

Con reports go here....
