Fanlore downtime | Organization for Transformative Works
During the last few days Fanlore users may have been experiencing temporary problems connecting to the site. The reason is that we have been running out of space on Fanlore's hard disk drive. In some ways this has been a good problem to have because it indicates how the site has been growing!

Our systems team did some short-term clean-up that should solve the problem for now but they are also planning another maintenance operation on Wednesday, December 19th at 6am UTC (What time is that where I live?) Fanlore will be offline for about an hour.

fanlore | Committee post: Category Post III Fan Communities
The wiki committee would like to offer our thanks to everyone who has commented on our recent posts about categories on Fanlore, Category proposal (May 21) and Category proposal II (June 18). Your input has been really helpful.

Based on those conversations and the conversations we've had within the committee, here's what we're now planning to do.

Fanlore will have overlapping categories under Fandoms by Canon Type so everyone can have the categories they find useful. Here's a diagram of (what we hope is) the final version of our category proposal

Fanlore - Main Page
Welcome to the Fanlore wiki! Fanlore is a collaborative site by, for, and about fans and fan communities that create and consume fanworks. Here, you can read about fan activities, fannish vocabulary, and the histories of fan communities -- and add your own voice, memories, and experiences to our collective story

Fans on The Move | Organization for Transformative Works
In these tumultuous times of fans having multiple journals, websites, networks and streaming sites (with slightly different versions of their handle on each!), and with Web 2.0 companies and various hosting sites folding, failing, or cutting back on their services, we'd like to remind fans that they can use Fanlore to keep track of the fans, fan sites, fan fiction, art, vids, and other fanworks they love.

Remember: Fanlore is searchable and easily updatable, so make it easy for people to find your journals, webpages, and fanworks. You can also create pages for other people or add links to their pages, so if you just re-discovered a story or a vid you thought you'd lost, put the link into Fanlore so others can find it too!
