Hi, everyone,

In the past few weeks, we've done some small changes, including improving our New Visitors Portal and increasing the frequency of news posted to the Fanlore main page. We're also starting to prepare for the upcoming April Showers celebration.

This week, we're recruiting for new Fanlore committee staffers. These volunteers are responsible for dealing with various behind the scenes stuff to ensure that Fanlore runs smoothly. They respond to questions and complaints; help draft and improve Fanlore policies, categories, and tutorials; assist Fanlore gardeners and other editors; promote Fanlore; and do their best to improve it and plan ahead. No extensive experience is required—only reliability, teamwork, and an interest in fannish history and Fanlore in particular.

If you think you might be interested, please check out the position details and fill out a volunteer application on our website. Join us!

Lastly, an important note: the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has stopped archiving all links to our sister project, the Archive of Our Own. There are several of these on Fanlore, and we of course strongly believe the Archive should be preserved, so we, in addition to the AO3 development team and the OTW Board, are doing our best to reach out to the Internet Archive team and learn the reason for this error.

As of February 22, Fanlore has 40,970 articles, which have undergone 714,168 revisions. If you're up for doing one more, why not log in? See you on Recent Changes!

Roomies For VidUKon!

Roomies For VidUKon

These posts have two purposes; firstly, to help people arrange their rooms for VidUKon, and secondly, to help them find roommates to share with if they're so inclined. The posts are on both Livejournal and DreamWidth, so please make sure to post on both if you're looking for a roomie.

Booking Your Room

Here are the current room rates:

Friday - £94.00 B&B single and £104.00 B&B double or twin
Saturday - £119.00 B&B single or £129.00 B&B double or twin

If you want to have more than 2 people in a room, make sure to check the rate when you're booking.

There are currently 10 rooms being held for the con; these rooms are only being held until 16 April. If you book later than that, you're fighting to get a booking at the regular room rates, whatever they are. Rates tend to go up sharply, particularly if there's an event on in Cardiff, so don't delay.

Sometimes the staff can get confused about what rate to book you at. We strongly recommend speaking to the Reservations department to arrange your room, not Reception. The reservations people are much more clued up, and should know what you're talking about if you say that you want to book one of the rooms reserved for VidUKon.

Finding a Roomie

In theory, finding a roomie should be simple - ask for one in a comment here, another kind soul spots your post and shouts "Yay!" and you work things out. However, to help with that, the con twitter will keep reminding people that someone's looking for a roomie, if there's a comment here saying that someone is looking. Hopefully, everything will be ... simples.

Next up: vidshows!

This is the place to toss out ideas for vidshows you'd like to see at VividCon this year. The official call for programming suggestions and volunteers will go up next Wednesday, February 22nd; this post is for brainstorming and discussion.

(You don't have to want to VJ a vidshow to bring it up for brainstorming; if you have a vidshow you just want to attend, mention it, and maybe someone will adopt it!)

You can view all past vidshows, 2002 - 2016, on the VividCon Vid Database.

For more information on vidshows, you can visit the VividCon programming FAQ.

Come on over and discuss your vidshow ideas! There's no VividCon without vidshows!

It's time to get the ball rolling on VividCon programming. First up: panels
This is the place to toss out ideas for panels you'd like to see at VividCon this year, including workshops, tech presentations, discussions, fandom panels, and so on. The official call for programming suggestions and volunteers will go up next Wednesday, February 22nd; this post is for brainstorming and discussion.
(You don't have to want to moderate a panel to bring it up for brainstorming; if you have a panel you just want to attend, mention it, and maybe someone will adopt it!)
You can view a somewhat under construction list of all previous VividCon panels, 2002 - 2016, here.
For more information on panels, you can visit the VividCon programming FAQ.
Let's get some creative juices flowing, folks! There's no VividCon without panels!

Hello, Dreamwidth! And thank you to everyone who wished me and my wife a happy vacation -- it was an excellent one. (Rumors that it was to help distract me from a significant birthday starting with 4 and ending with 0 are totally unfounded. Really.) It was also awesome to come back and see all of the new activity going on! I hope that everyone who's joined us in the last month or two has been settling in nicely.

Behind the cut, a tour of some of the new stuff we've done in the last few months, plus a look at some older changes that could use more love:

* Image Hosting Frontend
* HTTPS Beta
* Create Entries Beta: progress report
* Selective comment screening
* Other alphabets in site search: fixed!
* Icon file size limit increased
* Dreamwidth: Did You Know?
* Team Dreamwidth

"I think in the end, you would have stayed with me, out of obligation...or maybe comfort. Maybe I was safe to you, and you needed to feel that. I know how scared you get of the unknown. To you...I must be kind of a security blanket. Do you see now, how that doesn't work for me? I don't want to be there, simply because the idea of me being gone is too...scary. I want to be someone's everything. I want fire and passion, and love that's returned, equally. I want to be someone's heart... Even if it means breaking my own." ― S.C. Stephens, Thoughtless

A jewel must be polished, for it to properly shine - it's easy to miss the gleam if you aren't looking closely enough.

We're trying something new this year, though - the show will be assembled based on suggestions from you, the Vidukon community! If you want to take part, head on over to the poll and let us know your top five Festivids:

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 9pm PST / 12am EST / 5am UTC on either Sunday, Feb 12 or Monday, Feb 13, depending on whether you live east or west of midnight. (Time is an illusion anyway, right?)

Here's a partial list of changes that will go live with this push, apart from the usual minor tweaks and bugfixes:

  • HTTPS Everywhere beta! Users can opt-in to have all Dreamwidth content automatically served over HTTPS. We'll post the instructions for this after the feature goes live.

  • New and improved design for the file management pages, which we were hiding from you because we were so embarrassed about them before. Thanks to [personal profile] momijizukamori for making them prettier and more functional!

  • Backend fixes to resolve problems using the aforementioned file management pages. (Did I already mention the embarrassment?)

  • At long last, international character support for journal search! Our systems guru [personal profile] alierak finally cracked this long-standing bug.

  • Support index page converted to Foundation styling, for your mobile viewing pleasure.

  • For users of the Practicality style: color properties now sort properly in the customization wizard.

  • For users of the Drifting style: the QuickReply box will now appear in the appropriate location, instead of wandering off somewhere unexpected.

  • Improved handling of word break (<wbr>) elements in user entries.

  • Allow embeds from: Facebook, CNN,,,,,

We'll update again to let you know when the code push is in progress!
