Front page of the Francillian from February 2012
The Francillian was an online national newspaper in Francisville.
Founded in 2009, the newspaper was an important contributor in the Microwiki community as part of the DDFmedia group, before it ceased publishing in 2010. It was re-begun in late 2011, and is now Francisville's primary English language news source.
The newspaper has a respectable reputation, and is considered politically left of centre.
The Francillian was launched in October 2009
The newspaper was later integrated into the press and media organisation DDFmedia which operated DDFTV and a publishing department.
Style and Contents
As of 2010, The Francillian is an online only publisher, distributing through Wordpress. The Francillian published printed copies throughout August 2009. DDFmedia ceased printed publication to develop ideas for the continuation of the service. In January 2009, it was announced that The Francillian would run as a purely online newspaper due to decrease in demand for the printed service.
The newspaper began publication only in the English language. Publication in French is due to begin in March to April 2010. DDFmedia does not broadcast in Francillian.
