Introduction

JournalFen is a fan-hosted, fan-based version of LiveJournal constructed on the original open source code available to developers before LiveJournal was purchased by Six Apart. It's focus is entirely on fans, media fans in particular, and is the current home of Fandom_Wank. It is currently hosted on the same server structure as the SlashCity fan webhosting enterprise run by Robin Serrano and ZorroRojo. It functions very much like LiveJournal although not all upgrades and changes made to LiveJournal have been incorporated into JournalFen's framework

History

In late March 2007, JournalFen was the subject of a massive Denial of Service attack. [2][3]

In May, June, July, and August 2007, JournalFen saw renewed interest in the site as a fandom alternative to LiveJournal in light of StrikeThrough and related events.

On August 16, 2007, Msscribe reappeared on her LiveJournal. This was quickly picked up by Fandom Wank with some LiveJournal users speculating that this would bring down JournalFen's servers. [4]

Fandom Wank

Fandom_Wank was created on LiveJournal on October 16, 2002. [5] In 2003, Fandom_Wank, a blogging community dedicated to finding all the wankish fandom oriented discussion, informing the masses about it and generally having a good laugh, faced a number of issues this year as it began to form into one of the most influential communities in fan fiction. The community was ToSed eventually from LiveJournal.

Fandoms

JournalFen is host to a number of RPF/RPS and RP role-playing/interactive character writing communities.
