fandomnews poll

March 9th, 2010 by Laura Leave a reply »

[info]fandomnews is almost three months old now. There are 72 followers on LJ, 14 on IJ and 52 on DW. We’re also slowly working on creating a version on its own domain for those who aren’t into LJ or its clones. As this community is still a work in progress, we wanted additional feedback from our community. The last time we did a poll, people indicated they were okay with overflow posts and were looking for 20 to 30 posts a day. We changed and we want to see if people are happy with that.

Do fandom specific labels help you find content you want to read?

  • Yes, other reason.
  • No, as I’m less likely to read meta if it labeled by fandom.

  • No, other reason.

What blogs/journals would you recommend us checking for inclusion in future posts?


There is a really awesome discussion over on kaigou’s dreamwidth. In the comments, I discussed some of [info]fandomnews‘s internal policies regarding how we handle things. You might find it interesting. If you haven’t, check out our feed list of blogs that we check for inclusion. We’re always looking for more to help make [info]fandomnews better. All feedback is appreciated. For LiveJournal people, we posted a version on my LiveJournal where you can answer these questions.

    Doesn't matter.

    Should meta discussion posts be separated by -isms under their own -ism related heading?
    Yes. I actually wonder if you might try posting by category? Meta gets its own set of posts, legal gets its own, etc.Not sure if there's always enough content to warrant that, but it's a thought.

    Yes, as I’m only interested in some fandoms.

  • We make up header sections as we need them. :) So we can be flexible with those. It just helps to be a bit consistent with those.

    The -isms related one is a concern because we're not always sure how to label things. Or rather, we don't want to mislabel things and cause inadvertent offense. It also takes more time when compiling to figure out if there are isms. At some point, we're going to have a post which discusses what we're doing and responding to feedback. (Just other things like compiling newsletter and prep for hopeful PhD and other wiki work.)
