Pinboard now has a popular fandom bookmarks page! Popular bookmarks are based on what got bookmarked in the past 3 days by people who have opted into the "fandom" setting. (To have your bookmarks be included in said 'popular' list, you will have to go to Settings -> General -> and check the "I'm part of fandom. Hooray!" option.)

(note: your bookmarks will still be included in the general 'recent' or 'popular' list. It merely aggregates those who ticked the 'fandom' option.)

(Also, if you go to settings -> privacy -> and check the "Let other people see my entire network" option, you can also let others see who you subscribe to and who subscribes to you. If you're into the social bookmarking aspect of the old Delicious this feature may be useful to you and others who come across your bookmarks. I haven't really seen a lot of people opt into this function despite it being some time since it was implemented, so I've decided to signal-boost it in case users missed this new functionality. :))

oh, just me venting. :)

It really, really bothers me that the fandom bookmarks show up on the recent/popular pages, because the non-fandom users resent it. Knowing that makes me very uncomfortable. So I was just saying that I wish that the first step had been making a way to filter us off those two general areas, so we don't intrude so much on all of the original paying users of the site. Just thinking of the recent page being flooded with updates from a kinkmeme archive makes me shudder with horror. lol.

Just me blah blah blahing. Ignore! I appreciate your signal boost. There's no way I would have known otherwise. I guess I should get in the habit of checking the Settings section regularly. *g*

I find it hard to imagine that any of the original users would be upset to see our bookmarks no longer showing up on their recent/popular pages. That coding "attention" would be benefiting them just as much as us. They have no interest in seeing these bookmarks.

Personally, I think there should be a "rift", since we are user groups with dramatically different interests. Since he's already made a separate popular page for us, and we can see any recent bookmarks we want by looking at our Network or subscribed tags, then I don't see a reason at all to force our entries onto other users who don't wish to see them. (think also of the fanfic writers whose work is being bookmarked -- I'm also a writer myself, and anything that will prevent links to my work being served up to people who would just ridicule it, that's a plus.)

It's a big internet and we all have to share it. But I think sometimes the compromise is to live and let live. When there are social network services that appeal to multiple interest groups, there should be a way for us all to use them without intruding on each other. The goal to well built information services is to present the user with the information that is most relevant to them.

but that's just my 2 cents. maciej is going to do what he wants to do.

Is there a way to subscribe to the popular fandom bookmarks?

Sounds like I may just have to be a bit more patient. :) I'm still amazed at how much Maciej has accomplished in such a short amount of time. :)
