Caroline van Oosten de Boer co-founded Whedonesque, one of the Net’s most powerful online fan communities, where Whedon is a regular guest and fans keep the kaput Buffy and Firefly alive, made Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog a hit, and may save Dollhouse.

More press quotes about Whedonesque.com

A collaborative weblog devoted to the works of Joss Whedon. At its inception in 2002, Whedonesque covered Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, but has since expanded to follow Whedon’s ongoing professional output, as well as the careers of cast and crew associated with Whedon projects. It is actively administered under a set of rules designed to minimize problems which had impacted other fan forums. As Whedon’s popularity and involvement with the site have grown, the site has increased in profile and popularity. Since 2004, the site has been recognized in other media outlets by awards and citations of Whedon’s writings originally posted to Whedonesque.

Beyond simply being an informational site, Whedonesque has been referenced in books and cited in academic papers. It is used by marketers to drum up interest in Buffy products and by comic book editors to gauge reader reactions. Whedon has occasionally posted his personal political views to the site, such as during the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike. This led some to mistakenly believe that Whedonesque is Whedon’s personal or official site and prompted some fans to take up the writers’ cause.
