New Aladdin Fansite

New Aladdin Fansite

It doesn’t happen often anymore in these days of social media that someone takes the effort to put together a fansite for Aladdin. Because it’s easier to “like” or “follow” socialmedia sites like Facebook and Twitter and so express one’s fandom. I remember a time when the Aladdin fanbase was strong and active through the Aladdin Mailing List and the messageboard on Aladdin Central but that was quite a few years ago. So I was happily surprised that I go a mail from a fan who has started a new fansite this April.

Run by Jacob written in Polish the site is an hommage to the Aladdin fansites like they appeared in the late 1990’s early 2000’s complete with moving graphics and background sound. It has a nice collection of wallpapers and images and links to ROMS Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis video games for emulators to play on any computer. Plus there are summaries, images and videos (in English) of some of the better episodes from the Aladdin TV Series as well a link to Hercules Series episode where Team Aladdin had a cameo appearance.

Aladdin fandom history: 10 years online fandom

Aladdin fandom history: 10 years online fandom

partly_bouncy posted at the LJ Aladdin community a link to the Aladdin Fandom entry on Fan History, a wiki that descips fandoms. It lists general description of the fandom, Terminology, Timeline and Influential fanworks + Fandom members. I took the liberty to make a start by descriping the start of the online fandom when the Aladdin Mailing List was founded in 1998.

I took the liberty to add everything I remembered from the top of my head for example noted a few important dates in the TIMELINE section like the founding of the AML and when this site went online. I made an entery for Streetrat for those you want to know more about me check my name, Merkal Kahil at fanhistory.com.

but there is still allot of work to do. So it would be great if you can fill the blanks remember Aladdin’s fandom history isn’t an encyclopedia.
