    Construindo Caminhos – Organização para Obras Transformativas – Campanha de Abril – 3-9 de abril de 2014

    Você visitou a Fanlore ultimamente? Se sim, então você provavelmente sabe que ela é uma história do fandom viva e em constante evolução, criada e mantida por fãs. Lançada em 2008, a Fanlore é um projeto colaborativo em que fãs têm a oportunidade de registrar suas experiências e memórias do fandom, de obras de fãs, eventos, e tudo o mais relacionado ao fandom. Ela está aberta a fãs como você que queiram se juntar à comunidade em moldar a forma como todos vêem e relembram o fandom.

    A Fanlore celebrou um grande marco no dia 15 de fevereiro, quando atingiu 500 mil edições. E ela continua crescendo: mais de 4 mil edições já foram feitas desde então. Esses númeors refletem a paixão de voluntárixs e contribuidorxs da Fanlore, que têm ajudado a construir e preservar um registro amplo e em constante mudança de comunidades no fandom.

    Alguns outros destaques na história da Fanlore são:

    • O GeoCities Rescue Project (Projeto de Resgate das Obras no GeoCities): liderado pelo comitê Open Doors (Portas Abertas) da OTW, o projeto incluiu uma campanha para incentivar a criação de artigos na Fanlore documentando sites de fãs hospedados no GeoCities antes do mesmo encerrar seus serviços em outubro de 2009.
    • Sair da fase beta em dezembro de 2010.
    • Participação junto com outros projetos da OTW no protesto contra o SOPA/PIPA — um projeto de lei norte-americano que ameaçava a liberdade e os direitos dos fãs — em janeiro de 2012.

    A Fanlore está aberta a contribuições de todo mundo; confira o Portal para Novos Visitante para dicas sobre como começar. Cada edição nos ajuda a preservar mais da história do fandom, e leva a Fanlore um passo mais perto de assegurar que as incríveis discussões, a criatividade e a atmosfera que nasce dentro e ao redor de fandoms, tanto atuais quanto antigos, não sejam esquecidos. O time da Fanlore já está de olho no marco de 600 mil edições, e, como sempre, em trazer novas vozes para essa história de fandom.

    Milstolpar – Organisationen för Transformativa Verk – Värvningskampanj – 3-9 april

    Har du besökt Fanlore på senaste tiden? Om du har gjort det så vet du förmodligen att det är en plats för levande fandom-historia och under ständig utveckling, skapad och upprätthållen av fans. Fanlore startade 2008 och är en gemensamt uppbyggd wiki där fans är välkomna att dokumentera sina erfarenheter och minnen av fandoms, verk av fans, särskilda händelser och allt annat som har med fans att göra. Den är öppen för att fans som Du ska kunna bli en del av gemenskapen och vara med och utforma hur alla ser på och minns fandom.

    Fanlore firade en stor milstolpe den 15 februari när den nådde 500.000 sidredigeringar! Och den växer fortfarande: mer än 4.000 nya redigeringar har gjorts sedan dess. Dessa siffror visar på passionen hos Fanlores många volontärer och medarbetare, som har hjälpt till att bygga upp och bevara en vidsträckt, ständigt skiftande dokumentation över fandoms gemenskaper.

    Några andra höjdpunkter i Fanlores historia är:

    • GeoCities Räddningsprojekt (The GeoCities Rescue Project) , lett av OTWs Öppna Dörrar kommité (the Open Doors commitée), som innebar ett krafttag för att skapa Fanlore-artiklar som bevarade de webbsidor av fans som fanns på GeoCities innan GeoCities site stängde i oktober 2009.
    • Kom ut ur betastadiet i december 2010.
    • Deltog med andra projekt inom OTW i protesten januari 2012 mot SOPA/PIPA - en föreslagen lagändring i USA som hotade fans friheter och rättigheter.

    Fanlore välkomnar redigeringsbidrag från alla - kolla in New Visitor Portal (Portal för nya användare) för tips om hur du kan börja. Varje tillägg och redigering hjälper oss att bevara mer av fandoms historia och tar Fanlore ett steg närmare till att säkerställa att vi inte glömmer den hisnande kreativitet, positivitet och de diskussioner som växer inom och kring gamla och nya fandoms. Teamet kring Fanlore siktar på att nå 600.000 redigeringar härnäst, samt, som alltid, på att få in nya röster till denna berättelse om fandom.

    Stepping Stones: Organization for Transformative Works Membership Drive, April 3-9

     

    Have you visited Fanlore lately? If you have, then you probably know it’s a living, evolving history of fandom, created and maintained by fans. Launched in 2008, Fanlore is a collaborative wiki in which fans are invited to record their experiences and memories of fandoms, fanworks, events, and everything fannish. It's open for fans just like you to join the community in shaping how everyone perceives and remembers fandom.

    Fanlore celebrated a major milestone on February 15 when it reached 500,000 page edits! And it's still growing: more than 4,000 additional edits have been made since then. These numbers reflect the passion of Fanlore's many volunteers and contributors, who have helped build and preserve a wide-ranging, ever-changing record of fandom communities.

    Some other highlights of Fanlore's history include:

    • The GeoCities Rescue Project led by OTW's Open Doors committee, which included a push to create Fanlore articles documenting fannish websites hosted on GeoCities before GeoCities closed down in October 2009.
    • Coming out of beta in December 2010.
    • Participating with other OTW projects in the January 2012 protest against SOPA/PIPA — a piece of proposed US legislation that threatened fans’ freedoms and rights.

    Fanlore welcomes contributions from anyone — check out the New Visitor Portal for tips on how to get started. Each edit helps us preserve more of fandom's history, and takes Fanlore one step closer to ensuring that the staggering creativity, positivity and discussions that grow in and around fandoms old and new are not forgotten. The Fanlore team has their sights set on 600,000 edits next, and, as always, on bringing in new voices to this story of fandom.

    Please help Fanlore keep growing: head over to Fanlore, add your stories, and donate today!

    Fanlore editing party!

    Keen to add your fannish memories to Fanlore but not sure where to start? Need your hand held as you make your first wiki edits? Or keen to share your skillz as an experienced Fanlore editor? Join Fanlore staff in the Fanlore chatroom for an editing party! You'll be able to get help making your first forays into editing Fanlore, toss around ideas for new pages, and ask questions. Everyone is welcome!

    Join them on Saturday, 19 April, from 20:00 to 22:30 UTC. (What's the start time in my timezone?)


    Here at the OTW, preserving fannish history is a central part of our mission! We're proud to be able to offer fans a place to archive their works on the Archive of Our Own, and tell their own fannish histories on Fanlore. Both of these sites passed major milestones in February and represent works and stories about many thousands of fandoms.

    However, we know that there are a lot more histories and fanworks out in the world which haven't found their way to the AO3 or Fanlore. So this month, we invite you to bring us fannish April showers by digging out those old zines, memories of past cons, archived personal webpages, tales of shipwars and fannish events, works on slowly-decaying archives, new works you've been putting off creating, and more! Help us celebrate fandom's history and diversity by uploading your old (and new) works to the AO3 and by telling your tales on Fanlore. When uploading to the AO3, you can tag your uploaded works April Showers 2014

    Alternatively, celebrate your favorite fanworks on the Archive by sharing your recs with us. To do so, simply bookmark the fanwork in question and add it to our April Showers Recs collection.

    Screen capture of the bookmark screen showing the Notes box, the Collections field (just type in April Showers Recs 2014, or use the autocomplete) and the Rec ticky box

    To do this, either create a new bookmark of the work or edit an existing bookmark you'd like to highlight for this occasion. In the Bookmarking screen, scroll to the bottom, check the "Rec" box and add the name "April Showers Recs 2014" in the collection field. When sharing your recs, we encourage you to leave some comments about it in the Notes section, to help guide other fans.

    For our part, we'll be highlighting a different fandom for each day of the month through our social media sites:

    Check them for the hashtag #aprilshowers! We hope to jog your memories about fannish loves of the past and highlight some currently active fandom activity. However, don't feel you have to stick to the fandoms we highlight!

    Yesterday the AO3 reached its one million milestone and here are some things that have been taking place since.

    ao3million posts

    Since our milestone 354 new works have been posted to AO3 using the AO3 1 Million tag. \o/ for new fanworks!

    There have also been a lot of fic recs flying around on Twitter and Tumblr under the #ao3million tag. So if you're looking for something new, check those out and remember to add your own!

    It's been very moving to the staff and volunteers to read the many personal messages of how much AO3 has meant to people. Thank you for sharing those with us and also to the new donors who have stepped forward to help us keep things running!

    Parties!

    The organizers of Nine World's fanfic programming last year are hosting a party in London to celebrate AO3's milestone. It will be held on March 8 from 5-11 pm at The Blue Lion. Let them know you'll be there.

    If you are planning parties or events yourself, let us know here in comments and we'll keep updating this post with information.

    Another milestone!

    The AO3's sister project, Fanlore, has also zoomed past a milestone. Last year it was passing 25,000 articles. Now it's passed its 500,000th edit on the same day that AO3 hit 1 million! Please join us in congratulating all the editors, gardeners, and staffers who have worked on those many entries <3

    Yet to come

    We plan to keep celebrating through March, so stay tuned for our announcement next weekend with details of upcoming events. We'll be counting on your input! And in another few days we'll be letting you know about something we're planning for coming years. So keep an eye on OTW News.

    In the meantime, let us know what you've been seeing, planning, and doing!

    * Memories
    * Definitions and trivia
    * Discussions
    * Memes
    * Links to fandom resources
    * Overviews of fandom history
    * Examples of fanworks, fansites, fan gatherings, and groups

    Message type:

    The OTW would like to remind everyone that its fandom wiki project, Fanlore, will be passing a new milestone in the next week. To celebrate, we will be holding a trivia contest that begins in 48 hours and are inviting everyone to participate!

    Starting on June 16th at 1800 UTC (what time is that in my timezone) and ending on June 20th at 0200 UTC, we will be posting 10 questions each day at our Fanlore Dreamwidth community, whose answers can be found on Fanlore. All comments to these posts will be screened and you do not need an account to post comments at the site. If you are posting anonymously, however, you will need to include a name in your comment so that we can identify you if you are a winner.

    The first individual to submit correct answers to all questions at that post will win an OTW magnet, usually available only to those making donations. (This offer is void where prohibited.) There will be a total of three winners, one for each post. The posts will be made at different times each day to allow participants in different timezones plenty of time to respond.

    You may want to subscribe to Fanlore's twitter account for updates during the event.

    If you have any questions please leave them here!
