Over the last few months, we introduced a couple of new features, like a revamped tag search and the ability to block users (which currently prevents them from leaving comments on your works or replying to your comments). We also provided the Policy & Abuse team with some new tools in their work against harassment and abuse, fixed a whole host of bugs, and continued to optimize our code and infrastructure.
The Elections Committee would like to thank all of our candidates for their hard work in this year's election. With that, we are pleased to present the results of the 2022 Election.
In July, Fanlore had a great Fandom in Color themed month, featuring pages of all kinds related to characters of color; events and communities that celebrate them; and articles, discussions, and fan activism around race and fandom. You can check out all of the great pages and topics Fanlore highlighted using the Fandom in Color dedicated tag on Tumblr. (Or #FandominColor if Twitter is your preference!) Fanlore also held a Discord editing chat on the same theme that gave rise to some excellent discussion, edits and new pages -- thanks to everyone who came along!
