quirkyquotes-and-nerdyjokes:

today at camp my sewing teacher saw that I had DFTBA written on my arm

and she asked if I was a Nerdfighter and I was like hell yeah I am and we talked about Nerfighteria stuff and in class we put strange charm on in the background and when someone asked what a Nerdfighter was she said “It’s a person who decreases world suck and increases world awesome.” and everyone was super confused but it was awesome

my sewing teacher is probably 45-50

it just shows how vast the age range of Nerdfighters and how it can bring people together

Those of you with a keen eye may have noticed that at the bottom of the semi-weekly (ok, more recently not weekly because VIDCON consumed all) Nerdfighter Newsletters, there is a Missoula PO Box address.
We at the Missoula offices have received a few pretty cool things through the mail & have decided to start a wall dedicated to the awesomeness of Nerdfighteria.
So far, we’ve gotten mail from the teens at Warren-Trumbull County Public Library in Ohio (pin the glasses on John Green!), from summerotaku near NYC, and Virginia from Texas.
If you’d like to add something to the wall, items can be sent to NerdfighteriaPO Box 8147Missoula, MT 59807
and we’ll keep y’all updated with pictures right here!

Research on Nerdfighters

sittingonanmm:

Remember that time I started writing a blog about the research I’d done about Nerdfighteria and then disappeared for no reason? Good, me neither.

This time, I am coming to you with a finished product! (Yay me, right? it only took like nine months.) I’ve written about the research I did on Nerdfighteria, including some background theory, the model I was testing, and (finally), the narratives in this community’s culture.

Whether you participated in the original survey or not, and whether or not you saw my first failed attempt at writing about it, if you want to learn a bit more about Nerdfighters and about my theory why they are such a cohesive and unique community, please visit my blog!

There are also links to the full thesis and a published article (in the Computers in Human Behavior Journal), in case there are other researchers of online communities out there ;)

Once you visit, please let me know your thoughts! Comments, constructive criticism, MORE NARRATIVES, chocolate cake recipes—all are welcome!!!

DFTBA!

This is a really great read on why Nerdfighters are compelled to nerdfight, storytelling as a community, and seeing each other as Real Complex Human Beings.

My Freakish Talent

Nerdfighteria Census 2014! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014NFCensus

A bunch of intricately controlled sounds exit my mouth and you go “Oh, Hah! Yes, quite interesting! QUITE!” and, like, it’s easy to go your whole life without ever noticing what a magical miracle that is.
