I just spent about an hour leisurely clicking through randomofo to do the roundup, and just a heads up, the same ones appeared quite a few times. Random? : )

(Also, my personal blog never did...and I was wondering if we can add veganmofo.org into the mix, too?)

Thank you, guys!!!

Maybe it's just me, but I'm having issues viewing blogs on my iPad. It'll flip to a random blog but it won't let me scroll. This happened with multiple pages, and it was fully loaded.

Not just you! I can't scroll on an ipad either. Tried refreshing instead of "next blog" too and though it fully loaded a new page I still couldn't scroll. Phoo.

No worries at all! :)

It's random instead of shuffle. Which means there's a chance some previous blogs will come up again (whereas a "shuffle" would ensure that you never see/repeat a blog you've just seen). Hope that helps to clarify.

Come Scone with Me is on the list and has popped up for me. Is that the correct site? Let me know if not and I can easily update.

Crystal, I'm getting this using Firefox.

ETA, not sure if it's clear in the photo, but I can only scroll through about an inch of a blog at a time.

Just caught this part above. so veganmofo.com is on the list, but veganmofo.org isn't. I was going to add it in, but it doesn't look like veganmofo.org is a live site. Let me know what you'd like me to do.

It looks like a lot URLs people submitted are RSS or Feedburner URLs instead of direct blog addresses.


Didn't the sign-up sheet ask for the RSS code and *not* the direct page link? I'm pretty sure that's what it said and what I submitted. Then again, my 60 yo brain could have been fried from the heat that day and I read it wrong. If I did, sorry.

We asked for both, but the opml file contained blog rss links. The main blog urls are listed on the site alphabetically. You're not crazy!

I only became vegan a month ago and Vegan Mofo couldn't have come at a better time for me - loads of inspiration and ideas. And randomofo is brilliant for introducing me to all of them!

Yeah, I posted this in the other thread. Some bloggers that signed up for mofo 2014 simply aren't blogging at all. It's the updated list, last year's list is deleted so it's just blogs that committed to mofo that aren't blogging. :( If you can think of any off hand let me know. I'll be adding the "report" feature to flag any blogs that aren't participating. I just wanted to give people a few days in case they were delayed before removing them from the list. ETA: Until Chris can get to that I'll just go through them manually and get a list together. Hopefully I can make a dent in that using the old school method :) Thank you!

Oh no! Can you let me know which ones? If not, that's alright. I'll be adding a "report" function tonight so that you can report blogs that are not participating. I wanted to give bloggers a few days in case they were delayed on their first mofo posts. Hopefully the report function will allow me to find / remove any blogs that aren't actively participating/blogging. Sorry about that - expect that report button soon.

whoa, you guys weren't kidding - so far i've found/removed* about 20 blogs who have signed up for MoFo but haven't blogged anything (some haven't blogged at all in 2014). :( We added a report feature & a loading screen.

*I'll be checking in on these blogs daily. If they make a post, they'll go back in the randomofo live list. They aren't really removed just set aside, if you will.

It should be smooth sailing going forward, thanks to yall's help.

I loooooove randomofo! I do end up having the same blogs come up over and over, which indicates to me that it really is "random." Still, it's one of the best ways to see a sampling of the VeganMoFo blogs! There are so many that it's impossible to cruise them all...

Hey MoFo friends! Randomofo.com is up and running with the 2015 Blog list!

It's random, not shuffle - you might see a blog twice. Some blogs are heavier than others so they might have a shorter or longer load time.

You can report a blog (if it's not loading, not participating or isn't a real site) using the "report a blog" feature. This sends us an email about that blog just so we can look into the problem. I'll pass any reported blogs on to the MoFo organizers.

Also - if you're a coder - randomofo.com is open source. You can see the code, report bugs and add your own features.
Here's the Github repo:
https://github.com/ctate/randomofo

Don't hesitate to let me know if you have any issues! Thanks!
