[sticky post]A central point for Nordic fandom news
Dovregubben Surprise
This is a central point for Nordic fandom news, automatically gathered by web feeds and LJ-watches.

Go to Nordic Fandom News' Feed to see the current news.

  • Anyone can friend, watch or syndicate this journal or its individual feeds.

  • If your journal/blog/community/etc. deliver content relevant to Nordic fans, it might be added to the list of watched feeds. Only public content will be shown in the automatically gathered feed.

  • Tips and feedback, especially about Nordic fan-sites, blogs, journals, archives etc. with or without web feeds, is welcome.

Want to syndicate Nordic Fandom News? Link the RSS-feed. You can also follow Nordic Fandom News on Twitter: @NFNFeed.

If you want to discuss Nordic fandom, or promote your Nordic fanworks, go to scandafandom. We are an active community over there and would love to see you.

Nordic Fandom News' twitterfeed on your homepage?
Dovregubben Surprise
Do you want Nordic Fandom News automatically served to your homepage or blog? You can add the NFN twitterfeed as a widget with this (HTML) textstring:

(Widgets are small scripts/"puzzle pieces" for blogs and homepages. Most serious blog providers have some kind of inbuilt system for handling widgets.)

You can also add the NFNs LiveJournal-RSS-feed if you prefer that.

About the automatically gathered content on NFN

The finer points of harvesting content automatically:

The focus of Nordic Fandom News
Nordic Fandom News' goal is to present a broad spectre of fandom news from the Nordics, ranging from gaming to science fiction, anime and jrock to fanfiction, cosplay and laives, to... you name it. People can be fans of everything, and this can of course make the collected newsfeed seem random at times. In time I (the mod) will try to refine the newsfeed towards a truly relevant and interesting whole, but I will allow a thorough try-out phase for every added author. Suggestions to additions and subtractions are welcome, here or in the screened comment field of the post below.

Adult rated posts
NFN's Friends list will show only public content. This content might be adult rated, since there is no active moderation on each post. However, the list of feeds IS moderated. I will try to avoid publishers of graphic, adult rated material (pictures and videos), but I will let legal adult rated text and audio posts through, if the publisher usually warns for this type of content. This because adult rated fanworks is a huge part of fandom.

What is web syndication and feeds?
Web syndication makes website material available to multiple other sites through feeds like RSS and Atom. More about web feeds (Wikipedia). More about syndication to and from LiveJournal.

Why is my journal/blog/archive/zine/site/etc. added to the feed?
Because it has public content, especially fanworks and articles, that might interest fellow Nordic fans. Only your public content will be shown here. I will also try to sort through your tags (if available): including fan-tags and excluding real life-tags.

General adding policyCollapse )

Added against your will?
This is an error, probably from misunderstanding your friending/adding policy. I am sorry and will try to fix it as soon as I'm notified. Use the comment field (here or in the screened comment field of the post below) to tell me (off).

General removing policyCollapse )

Only public posts will be shown to readers, but if you are logged in to LJ and have friended NFN, you will see your own private posts on the NFN's Friends page. People you have not given reading privileges will not see them. Test by logging out from LJ before viewing the NFN Friends page.

Use the comment field to ask about NFN policies, and I will gather my answers here.
