    New Fan Fest Threads-Please Adopt an Orphan?

    You, too, can start one any time you like. We do not delete them. If you build it, they will come!

    The first post need not be elaborate.


    Here's a typical first post (In this case, Julia Lipnitskaya):

    She is UNIQUE! One in a....thousand) Her spins are her trademark!

    Later some mod may come by and do a Summer Fan Fest Fete Update and put in lots of links to vids and articles, but you needn't put in any links at all in your first post unless you want to. BTW, Getting this kind of an update is one of the benefits of starting a Fan Fest.


    So please, come join the fun!


    Here's our Index of Fan Fest threads.
    http://goldenskate.com/forum/showthr...nks-to-Skaters
    It is stickied to the top of the Fan Fest Forum. The skaters' names are clickable links to their respective threads. If a skater you like is missing, do add them.

    If you're in a smaller federation, you might consider adding a Team link like these excellent ones:

    Australian Figure Skaters
    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...figure-skaters

    or

    Promising Latvian Skaters
    http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...atvian-skaters


    There are lots of great skaters and teams who don't have threads yet .

    Here are a few of our orphans that are still waiting for fans to adopt them and give them a fan fest home:

    Great idea & post!

    Will you be editing this post - adding new orphans, removing those who have been given a home etc? I'm thinking your post could be like a permanent "FF Orphanage"

    I would gladly adopt Seguin/Bilodeau but since I don't speak French, I might find it more difficult to write link/interview descriptions.

    If Gilles/Poirier are still homeless, I am definitely prepared to give them a loving home

    ETA: Noticed that you just added skaters and got thinking: Languages!

    I enjoy reading articles/watching interviews/looking at skaters' IG postings, but I don't speak Spanish or French. Like I'll watch an interview with S/B, but it's in French and I get frustrated because it seems interesting/fun but I don't understand what they're saying.

    I'm wondering if the multilingual people on this forum would have time/interest to add short translations to the links, either a sentence or two just after it, or a link to a longer translation written in a post somewhere down the thread?

    I myself would be happy to do this for any Finnish, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian & Icelandic stuff. What do you think?

    Thank you for your generous offers!

    One of the joys of Fan Fests is that fans are very often happy to do translations! This is one of the best things about the Julia Lipnitskaya and Yuzuru Hanyu threads. Some amazingly generous fans have even done translations of video documentaries

    Furthermore, because Fan Fest threads are relatively permanent, a request for a translation may be filled quite a while after it was made, too.

    And yes, I will add new orphans and remove happy adoptees. This thread, when it seems to have run its course in the Edge, will be moved to Fan Fests forum in some fashion I have not yet decided on.

    Another thing. Be sure to Subscribe to Fan Fests for skaters you particularly love. This can be done when you post an initial thread (Scroll down before you hit post)

    Or from Thread Tools on the tool bar at the top of the thread.


    If you pick Control Panel notifications, you can see all your notifications by clicking on Settings at top right corner of each page.

    If a skater is a particular fav, you might decide to pick Email notification, and GS will email you at the address on file with us when your chosen thread is updated. (you can pick from daily, weekly, or instant notification)

    Subscriptions can be edited and changed from your Settings/Profile pages, or by editing any post you make/have made on a thread.

    Wonderful! I love them!

    And do any of you have a good idea for how to handle translation requests?

    What has happened in the past is that people put a request in a Fan Fest thread, and another would (if all went well) do a translation.

    It would be nice if we had a better way to handle translation requests that would not put too great a burden on any of our volunteers. I have some thoughts, but so far have not gotten a super slick way to do it.

    Maybe create a TRANSLATION REQUESTS discussion either in the fan fest or in the edge. People post the articles, videos whatever they would like translated and other members can visit the thread if/when they want and translate what they can. This way, everybody can see the translation requests so there is more chances it will be translated than in individual fan threads for example. But also it doesn't put pressure on any member, they can just translate if/when they want.
    Once it is translated, the original poster can then post in the individual fan pages

    Besides Gilles/Poirier, I did one for Alaine Chartrand and Gabrielle Daleman. My goal is to put up five of them, so I'll choose two more when I have time!


    PS does anyone know if Madeline Aaron and Max Settlage have one?

    I've thought of starting a thread for Konstantin many a time, but I was worried it would just be me, myself and I posting there...but he does deserve one. I'll start it today.
