Feeding You the Savage Worlds Media Network

In collaboration with Pinnacle Entertainment Group, Inc. (PEG), the Savage Bloggers Network (SBN) feed is rebranding itself as the Savage Worlds Media Network (SWMN) feed. As a member of the SWMN, the SBN seeks to consolidate the content of the Savage Worlds community for the community.

Ten years ago, the SBN was born in a PEG forum thread where a handful of bloggers discussed cross-listing blogs and consolidating their posts. Since then, the content distributed through the SBN has grown, and the feed itself has advanced and taken some new Edges to bring its content far beyond blog posts. With the launch of the SWMN license, this collaboration is the next logical step forward.

As for the SBN itself, savagebloggers.net will remain as a home for its previously published content, including the SBN podcasts.

Below are some additional details about this change.

Subscribers

If you’re an existing subscriber, you will still receive updates in your RSS reader.

New subscribers can subscribe to the RSS feed at feed.savageworldsmedia.net or read the most recent content on the SBN site or on PEG’s site.

If you have any issues with your RSS subscription to the feed, email contact@savagebloggers.net.

Social Media Followers

The Twitter and Facebook profiles for the SBN will be renamed and rebranded, so if you follow the feed on either, you’ll still see updates from the feed through those channels.

Existing Content Publishers

Existing content publishers have nothing to worry about. If your feed was previously added to the SBN feed, it’ll remain as is. The only thing we ask is that you consider adding the Savage Worlds Media Network license to your site or content. If you have any questions regarding the SWMN license, contact PEGlicensing@gmail.com.

When Will This Change Take Effect?

It’s already happening! You might have noticed some changes on the SBN Twitter profile and Facebook page.

More Information

If you have any questions about the feed, send an email to contact@savagebloggers.net. If you’re interested in the Savage Worlds Media Network license and want to know more, head over to PEG’s licensing page or email PEGlicensing@gmail.com.

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!
