The (By No Means Exhaustive) List of Fandom Awesome

So, last week I did a thinger where I asked people whom they appreciated in fandom aside from writers/artists. Quite a few people came by and commented with people they appreciated*, and I found myself going - hey, I didn't know so-and-so did meta! I didn't know so-and-so was funny, aside from writing brillant fic! So I decided to compile the responses to the post into a single categorised post, a sort of one-stop 'people resource' for your non-ficcy and non-arty fandom needs.

I ran into a bit of trouble with categorising quite a bit of the appreciation. Lots of people left very personal 'I appreciate so-and-so for doing such-and-such for me' types of appreciation, which is awesome but I'm sure those who are thus appreciated would not be very happy if total randoms suddenly showed up and expected them to behave similarly with everyone. I also didn't want to leave anyone out -- so those who were appreciated on a personal level are in the "Generally Awesome" category at the bottom. \:D/

Without further ado, I give you:

The (By No Means Exhaustive) List of Fandom Awesome

First and Foremost
  • The fandom itself - all the people who participate and make it fun. Not just the artists, writers and mods, but also the readers, the commenters - the whole audience, without whom there would be no fandom.

  • All the people who do the newsletters - hogwarts_today, daily_snitch, quibbler_report, jedi_news, hp_art_daily, metafandom, su_herald, sunday_prophet and all of the pairing-centric newsletters.

  • People who take the time to help painless_j with her themed lists by sending links and fic info, for no gain other than helping out fandom.

  • Everyone who maintains a fic archive of any sort, no matter how large or small.

  • Reviewers who give detailed feedback.

Writing- and art-related

Someone not on here who should be? Let me know here or here. XD I do intend to maintain this list, with periodic updates, so feel free! Please comment on the original post with new names, not this one. I'm not getting the e-mail notifications for this post because of technical reasons and I will most likely not see comments posted here.
