The restructuring of Delicious
offended a large subset of its users- the slashfic fangirls
Fans considered relocating to either Diigo
. Unfortunately, Diigo didn't support the "/" character
, and deleted Delicious refugees for "spamming." Pinboard, on the other hand, reached out to the fanfic community
, and the fans promptly descended.
(Good thing Pinboard was prepared
even before the 2010 Delicious exodus.)
When Maciej Ceglowski, the man behind Pinboard, asked for a list of features they'd like to see on the site, fans swung into action. They delivered a collaborative twenty-four page spec document
within a day, then set up a poll
to vote on the most important features they wanted to see implemented. It didn't stop there. Fanfic writers and readers set up a Livejournal community
to ease the transition, and are now trading gift accounts for fanworks.
Not everyone is pleased. Longtime techie and entrepreneur users are confused and uncomfortable
at the amount of fanfiction invading the Popular
page. Maciej reassures the old users
while welcoming the new. And true to form, there is fanfic
about the whole mess. (SFW)
