Keeping in touch with our Zoner family

No Fact Zone logo 150pxI’ve been sincerely touched while reading all of those of you who have talked about how much your Zoner friends have meant to you. This post is a place for you to exchange user names and online contact info so that everyone can keep in touch. In addition to sharing your Twitter, Facebook, LiveJournal and Tumblr handles, there’s also been some discussion about forming some “Zoner Alumni” communities and calendars around the webs. I know Katt, one of our Completists here at No Fact Zone, has talked about starting up a news web site similar to No Fact Zone. One of the ColbertNation.com admins has said that at some point soon there will be a No Fact Zone alumni subforum on the ColbertNation.com boards. I also know there has been discussion of Toad setting up a LiveJournal community.

So get in the comments to leave your information and ideas, and make sure to keep in touch! I’ll still keep my Twitter and Facebook accounts, plus my email will stay the same and I’m always up for a Gchat if you see me online and I show to be available.

  1. For folks interested in the more academic and geeky stuff on both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, there is a LJ community: tds_tcr_academe. It’s been dead for a while, but it wouldn’t take much for the community to start back up.

    Yours truly is the owner and primary mod, although the lovely young woman who runs ColbertPics was a heavy contributor once upon a time, as well.

  2. Well, I guess I’ll dive right in. I’d love to be contacted by other Zoners after the rapture. My ColbertNation name is Susan WJ. You can email me at swjutt@verizon.net. Some of you have already contacted me on ColbertNation, and it is much appreciated.

    Katt and Toad, please send out the word if you do in fact create a site or LiveJournal community!

    Thanks, DB, for creating a message board for us to exchange information. That original post about the rapture had so many hundreds of responses, it was getting hard to keep track of them all!

  3. What about using a listserv/group to keep in touch (google groups/yahoo groups/etc), until the community decides on a consensus place to go? It also would eliminate the need for everyone to type their emails here in public for spammers to get ahold of.

      Great idea.

      Almost no one has sent me their address, so that’s obviously not going to be the place. It looks, however, as if there will be several options.

    There have not been enough hours in the day this week for me to do everything I had intended, so I apologize for not engaging in the “where do we go from here?” discussion for the past few days. I do have an LJ account, under the same username lockhart43, so anyone can feel free to add me! I will also be getting an account on the CN boards soon. Anything to keep in touch with you beautiful people :)

    Karenatasha, I will also email you soon so that you have my contact info and email address (DB has it already).

  6. I posted about this elsewhere here at NFZ before I saw this entry.
    The NFZ “Zoners-only” Alumni board at Colbert Nation is now up and running for you all to use as you would like.
    See the “Calling All Zoners” thread in the TCR section for details on how to access this NFZ subforum.

        • No problem. I had no problem finding the thread.. but did take a while to find the register function. There really should be a link in the forums.colbernation.com to register/login. I couldn’t find either of those options (i went directly to forums.colbertnation not the community.colbertnation) quickly.

          Thanks for putting this together for us.

        • There is Log in and Sign Up functions at the top right of the forums, in the black bar that runs along the top of the page. However, some people have reported this does not show up for them and the black bar is blank.
          There was a remedy but I can’t remember what it is right now, it’s posted somewhere that I’ll try to find. It mostly happens with Firefox.
          Arrow, if you see this, I believe I remember you telling someone how to fix this in FF once yes?

  9. Yay!!! I’m now an NFZ Fangirl!!! :) I’m Anais (with an umlaut (2 dots) over the “i” in my name) on ColbertNation and hplover7 on LJ if you want to find me!

    • P.S. Whoever has already put down their LJ name, I’ve just added you all! :)

      Shout Out (Hey!): Thumb up 0

      • Okay. Here’s my clearly-I-only-speak-one-language and I’m-not-a-computer-person question. How do I get the umlaut over the “i?” I hope you don’t mind that I’ve been writing to you umlaut-less.

        Shout Out (Hey!): Thumb up 0

        • Oh, don’t worry about not adding the umlaut! Sometimes when I’ve tried to type the umlaut in my name on certain websites online, either they won’t let me or once my name has been accepted, their system doesn’t recognize the umlaut and my name ends up having funny symbols in place of it (example: Ana%&s. Hey, with a unique name like mine, you come up against all kinds of wacky spellings), so most of the time I do without it (except when I handwrite my name, of course). When I joined NFZ, I decided to play it safe and make my name umlaut-less to save myself some hassle. On CN, I actually signed up by syncing my Facebook account with CN, which is why you’re seeing my Facebook profile pic and somehow it’s fine with keeping the umlaut in my name. But if I do want to put in the umlaut and it will be accepted, I do it the old-fashioned way because the short cut isn’t possible on my laptop. I just go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and Character Map. The letters with symbols over them are in alphabetical order, so just go to the “i” section and you’ll find the “i” with an umlaut (a.k.a. Latin small letter i with diaeresis).

        • lockhart43 says:

          Whenever I need to use one or another character symbol, I either do it the way Anais explained, or if I’m lazy, I just google the word (umlaut-less), and copy and paste the character or full word.

      http://www.nofactzone.net/2011/05/15/weve-got-our-welcome-jesus-t-shirts-on-bring-on-the-return-of-christ/

      The short answer is yes–no more NoFactZone updates after tomorrow I believe.

      It looks like the domain will expire July 12 of this year, so at the very latest the site will no longer exist then.. but its possible that the site could go down before then depending on what DB has worked out with the company who is hosting the site.

        • If that is even feasibly possible, then that would be dangerous for me because then I’ll want to save EVERY LITTLE THING from NFZ, from start to finish, at which point my hard drive would explode.

        • Well I’m trying something now; I hope DB and her webhost doesn’t mind. I would suggest not doing any archiving of your own and if I’m successful and DB gives permission I can upload the file for ya’ll to download from a 3rd party so it does not put any more strain on nofactzone’s resources.

    Can someone tell me if there’s any good reason to join LJ? No disrespect intended, but I’m trying to decide if it’s worth adding yet another site that I’ll need to slavishly check. I’ve signed up at CN; I refuse to get a Twitter account; and I struggle with jetisoning my FB account every day. I’ll trust you guys if you tell me it’s worth it.

    I have to mention that the countdown clock is starting to get me agitated. And yet, at the same time, I think I need to be back here by 11:55 tonight as it runs out.

    • lockhart43 says:

      Regarding the rapture countdown clock – I think I heard somewhere that the end time is actually tomorrow at 7pm, so we’ve still got a little time. :)

      And if you don’t feel like getting an LJ account right away, don’t feel pressured. Starting an LJ community is just an idea that’s being thrown about. Once everyone gets acclimated over at CN, there might not be a need for one; but if the majority still wants one, it can definitely happen. For now though, LJ is useful for those people who have an LJ account who want an extra way to keep in touch.

        Thanks, lockhart43! Silly me, I seem to have gotten an LJ account years ago and forgotten about it. I’m hoping the CN option, or one of the other proposed blogs, works out. Since I’ve gone without using it this long, I can probably stand forgetting about it for another few years. ;-)

  21. I am in the process of starting up a new Colbert centric blog similar to NFZ. It will feature the latest news updates, and regular posts similar in nature to those of NFZ. A number of the current Completists will be staffing the blog, and we will be introducing some new exciting posts and features over the coming weeks and months. I am also hoping to incorporate a media archive similar to the old Colbert University site, but that will be a work in progress.

    I am hoping to get the basic’s of the blog set up over the weekend, and start posting new content (especially anything that comes in on Stephen’s trip to Bermuda) on Monday.

    If you are interested in helping out with the blog, whether it be full time, part time or sometime, expert or beginner blogger, please contact me at: katt@nofactzone.net

    The working title of the blog is “Colbert News Hub”, and will remain so until we can think of something catchy, imaginative and Colbert related. If you have any suggests please feel free to comment or email them to me.

    I look forward to seeing you all there, and hope that I and my fellow staff can create a great new Colbert community for you all to be apart of.
