Moving the SBN Feed to InoReader

The SBN feed has been moved to InoReader! Subscriptions to https://feed.savagebloggers.net should be redirected appropriately. You might see some duplicate feed items in your feed reader or on Twitter while the feed gets updated.

Since 2013, I’ve been hosting the SBN feed on Tiny Tiny RSS. That has proven to be cumbersome as it’s somewhat demanding on a VPS which has required me to rerun the update daemon far more frequently than I care to. Additionally, because of customizations I’ve made to the presentation of the feed itself, updating to the latest version is just annoying. And forget about getting support from the developer.

As such, I have been testing Inoreader Professional. For $5 a month, I have one less thing I have to manage in my life. As an added bonus for other InoReader users, you can engage with the SBN directly within InoReader itself using its robust social features.

On a side note, you might want to try InoReader if you’re burned out on social media algorithms dictating what you read, are tired of web advertising getting in the way of content, and want to return to RSS for consuming the Internet. It’s robust features make it a pure joy to use.

The Great Savagepedia Migration of 2018!

Wikispaces will be shut down in September 2018! We are discussing ways to archive and migrate content to another wiki platform.

We’ve successfully created an export of the content. There will now be a freeze on any new content until we’ve migrated it successfully.

That’s where we need your help. Daedalus252 has created a new home for Savagepedia, and it’s ready for content migration. There’s a ton of content to migrate, but there doesn’t seem to be any easy automated migration that we’re aware of.

If you’re willing to help and want to see Savagepedia content live on, grab a copy of the archive, head over to Savagepedia.net, and start copying and pasting!

Savagepedia 2017 Subscription Renewal

[UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who donated! With your contributions and a bit from my own end, Savagepedia‘s annual fee has been covered.]

Savagepedia needs our help again!

We have 3 days remaining as of this post. I’m collecting donations via PayPal; fortunately, Wikispaces accepts PayPal as a form of payment.

It’s time for its subscription renewal which costs $100 per year. The Savage Worlds community helped raise funds last year, and we can likely do it again this year.

If you appreciate the value that Savagepedia brings to our community and want to help it live on, please consider sending a donation. Even a few dollars helps us reach this (relatively) modest goal.

Savagepedia 2016 Subscription Renewal

[Update (2016-11-3, 7:06AM EDT): Wow, that was fast! We have the funds! Thank you to everyone who donated! A big shout out to John Steve, David Pope, and Manuel Sambs for carrying us over the finish line!

[Update (2016-11-3, 1:03AM EDT): Thanks to Kevin Flynn and Paul Kasper (the original Savagepedia admin ohoh7), we’re now at $85!

[Update (2016-11-2, 11:53PM EDT): A big thank you to Victor Diaz for being the first to donate and in the amount of $50 which gets us halfway there!]

Savagepedia needs our help again!

We have 14 days remaining as of this post. I’m collecting donations via PayPal; fortunately, Wikispaces accepts PayPal as a form of payment.

It’s time for its subscription renewal which costs $100 per year. The Savage Worlds community helped raise funds last year, and we can likely do it again this year.

If you appreciate the value that Savagepedia brings to our community and want to help it live on, please consider sending a donation. Even a few dollars helps us reach this (relatively) modest goal. (I know a lot of us have spent a good amount on Kickstarters for poker decks and Savage Worlds products in the past.)
