1.
A term initially from Buffy The Vampire Slayer Fanfiction, the term 'Jossed' is now used in many fandoms as a description of when a fanfiction writer's explanation of a certain event or exploration of a characters' motivations which previously is ambiguous, is then explained by the actual fandom, and contradicts the fanfiction writers story.

The term is derived from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon. The term is most prevalent in the science fiction genre.

It is used most commonly when authors are led to believe that a certain event may happen later in a Television series or book and write a story with that event in it, then the official author goes in a different direction, making their story 'AU', Alternate Universe.
This story about Buffy living in Los Angeles got Jossed when Buffy returned to Sunnydale. Now it's AU.

Plural Term of the word Fandom, refering to a community or group of fans of a television show, movie, book or other media. Most commonly used to describe fan produced media groups, such as fanfiction or fanvids.

Fans usually use the term in relation to belonging to a fan group, as an territorial identifier from one community to the next, ie: "I've come across the term whumping in the SGA fandom, but we don't use that term often in the Buffy fandom."
