frayadjacent: Buffy smirking over Giles with quarterstaff (Default)
I'm still a bit of a fandom noob, relatively speaking anyway. But I came to fandom through not-new shows, namely BtVS. So I often read and watch meta, fic, and vids that were made at least a couple of years ago, and in some cases more like 5-10 years ago (I don't generally find much older stuff than that on LJ/DW, where I tend to look). Now that's even more the case as I seem to be adding shows like Xena and Farscape to my fannish collection as rapidly as I am more current shows. 

And sometimes I find something made in 2007 or 2012 and I love it and want to leave feedback! But that seems potentially awkward or possibly unwanted. So I don't. (Also I have to admit I use this is as an excuse as much as areason.)

So, a poll! If you create fan works, do you like getting feedback/comments on old stuff, and if so, how old?
