Behind the Scenes at DNN

Want Some Help Fundraising?

As a community-driven, community-powered and community-funded site, we are on the look out for more ways to help the community. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for all your collective efforts, so it only seems right that we give back what we can.

DNN in 2014 - Opening Everything Up

We're making some changes around here.

The Final Outrage: DNN Retires Power Rankings

After 4 1/2 years of issuing more-or-less regular monthly rankings of the top 25 teams in modern roller derby, along with accompanying analysis, this month we've decided to retire the DNN Power Rankings. We've considered this move carefully over several months. Here, then, are five reasons why we're pulling the plug:

Outage Report & Learning Curve

We're moving!

Five years after DNN moved from hosting at WordPress.com to a virtual private server at Linode.com, this month we're making another big move up. We're doing this for essentially the same reason as five years ago: we're gearing up for a major overhaul of the site, and we want to give it the foundation it deserves.

Totally off-topic for DNN, but enquiring minds need to know: Some of you are wondering what this image is all about. If you've met me, you'll know I'm a very unlikely harbinger of death. From any direction. Particularly from above. I lack, as some might say, the Dropbear Nature.

The Once and Future Staff Blog

There's been rather a lot going on behind the scenes here at DNN during the "off season" (heh.), so we figured it was high time we resuscitated the Behind the Scenes section in order to fill you in on our doings. We've got a some catching up to do, so watch this space over the coming days and weeks for answers to questions like: What new goodies are cooking in the labs?
