Contents

Please edit this page to add topics or specific pages to the list that you would like to see on the wiki. New editors (and anyone else) who want to add content to the wiki, but don't know where to start, can check this list and start on anything that tickles their fancy.

A complete list of wanted pages (automatically generated) can also be found here.

Bandom/5SOS

  • We have a page for 5 Seconds of Summer, but it's pitifully short. It needs to be fleshed out, and reworked to be more informational rather than just directing to the wiki page.
  • Related to that, we don't have pages for any of the members that I can find. (Or if we do, they need to be better documented.)
  • After those two things are in place, we could work on pages for each of the ships; most likely beginning with Muke/Clemmings or Lashton because as far as I can tell those are the most widespread ships, with the most information available.

Maintenance

This section contains tasks that don't require any particular fannish knowledge but are still necessary and any help would be appreciated. Mostly it's tagging pages with the correct categories and similar routine stuff.

See Fanlore:Gardeners/Tasks.

Infrastructure-ish Page Wish

Some kind of What should we (re)name x page? page, where fl editors can more easily/centrally brainstorm ideas together about what to name or rename certain pages might be really handy. (See User_talk:Facetofcathy#Name_the_Page)

Wishes

This section contains a wish list for fannish topics that either do not have adequate coverage on Fanlore or are not yet represented here at all.

Activities

Vidding

Crafts

Fansub

This page desperately needs input on fansub traditions outside anime/Jdrama. See the talk page.

Fan video game development

In #yuletide, we were discussing fan video game projects like the Chrono Trigger sequel and how they routinely get shut down by video game companies.

Events

The Ray Wars

In Due South fandom. Needs more points of view, etc. more info here

The Blake's 7 Fandom Implosion

In Blake's 7 fandom. Needs more history and pov. more info here.

Fandoms

Anime

  • The MediaMiner article is just a list of popular fandoms right now. It could use more on the history of the site and its impact on anime/manga fandom.

Avengers

The Avengers (Marvel) page needs more love. The pairing page for Steve Rogers/Tony Stark is a stub. Plus fanwork pages, for example for Ready, Fire, Aim, especially fanworks that aren't Steve/Tony. Added popular pairings sections for the comics, but it needs popular tropes & fanon filled in. The Earth's Mightiest Heroes section needs tropes & fanon AND example fanworks. There's no real meta anywhere on the page. Plus most of the non-MCU pairings need pages created.

Bandom

Battlestar Galactica (2003) and Caprica

Both show and (any) character pages need more fandom, pretty please. Added placeholder bits of canon info and obvious stuff like Idol Reflections/Ship Manifesto essays (if any) just to have something, but no idea about other notable meta on the show or notable fanworks (apart from a few vids listed as notable elsewhere in the wiki or with lots of delicious bookmarks). If anyone who's actually been fannish about the show can add more fandom info to balance pages out that'd be lovely.

Blake's 7

Comics

A general article on (Western) comics fandom would be useful. At the moment, it's a disambiguation which gets linked all over the place.

D.Gray-man

Descriptions of the fandom for each of the major pairings would be very welcome.

DC Comics

Many major characters that have a strong fandom presence still have no article, and the rest is mostly stubs. Almost no pairings have pages.

Disney

Doctor Who

Farscape

Show page needs more fandom, pretty please. More character pages would be good (also adding more fandom to, as of mid-April 2011, the sole character page for Aeryn Sun). Added placeholder bits of canon info and obvious stuff like Idol Reflections/Ship Manifesto essays (if any) just to have something, but no idea about other notable meta on the show or notable fanworks (apart from a few vids listed as notable elsewhere in the wiki). If anyone who's actually been fannish about the show can add more fandom info to balance page(s) out that'd be lovely.

Firefly

Show page could use more sample/notable fanworks. Most character pages need more fandom, pretty please. Adding some placeholder bits of canon info and obvious stuff like Idol Reflections/Ship Manifesto essays if they exist just to have something, but no idea about other notable meta on the characters or notable fanworks. If anyone who's actually been fannish about the show can add more fandom info to balance pages out that'd be lovely.

Hanson

Pairing names moved onto their own page. Pages created for popular stories and fansites. More on fanart and other fandom things besides just fic, maybe. Any other opinions and perspectives, since the main Hanson article has been edited mostly by one person up to this point.

Harry Potter

Highlander

More information about the movies&movie fandom and how they relate to the series would be nice. (ee discussion on [the talk page])

Homestuck

  • The fandom page could use more content, for example about various wanks and controversies, the fandom' reputation, and fandom on Tumblr. It also needs more citations and could use a clean-up.
  • Few characters pages exist and those that do need a lot more fandom content. Same goes for pairings.
  • There are plenty of fanworks that deserve their own pages.
  • Something about the history of MSPA Forum Adventures would be great.
  • A couple of really prevalent Homestuck-specific genres and/or AU categories might benefit from mentions, such as (feel free to add):
    • Sadstuck

Inception

Pretty much all pairing and character pages but Arthur, Eames and Arthur/Eames need more content - Yusuf, Saito, Ariadne, Dom Cobb, Robert Fischer, Mal, Ariadne/Yusuf, Dom Cobb/Mal, Arthur/Dom Cobb and so on. Adding more fanworks and creators would be great too.

Kpop

There a a bunch of stubs for bands, but very little info about the fandom or fans. Needs the perspective of someone active in the fandom (are there any Kpop fans on Fanlore?) This is a longshot, but more info about the Korean fandom would be awesome.

Lord of the Rings and other Tolkien

Popslash

There are many popslash authors/websites that remain to be documented on their own pages. The 'N Sync page is a stub; there are a lot of ways it could be developed--maybe an overview of the group members as characters, and their evolution in the fandom, or the impact of each cd and subsequent tour on the fandom and the fiction. Perhaps a list of the most influential media appearances. And so on.

SGA

Several character and pairing pages (for example Sheppard/Weir, John/Teyla, Carson Beckett/Rodney McKay, Aiden Ford, ...) could use more fanwork examples and references to meta. Many more vids, stories, and other fanworks could have their own pages.

Sherlock Holmes

TSCC - Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Show page could use more sample fanworks. Any character pages would be good. Anyone who was fannish about the show interested in adding fanworks/meta/links?

Twilight

The fandom is so huge, yet the fanlore page barely says anything but statistics gleaned by non-Twilight-fans, and doesn't even mention any popular fanwriters and fanartists (or specific fanworks)

I created the Twilight RPF page but don't really know what to put in it. I hope someone else will enrich it. --msilverstar 05:16, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
Some stats/maybe-interesting info on fic-deleting/sharing in the fandom from a Twilight fan just came up here: http://vickyblueeyez.livejournal.com/77423.html?thread=71279#t71279 (up to 65% completely monofannish (feral?) fans, fic-deleting for possible monetary gain and fic-sharing against author's wishes commonplace) --Sk 18:49, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Video Games

I can't believe we don't have an article on these! Another thing that's linked all over the place.

I made a Video Games article but I'm not pleased with it at all. It needs more content from someone versed in more than a handful of games. LeaHazel (talk) 11:28, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Glossary

Anklebiters

Anyone remember the vampire hobbits fad? It even spawned an archive of sorts at one point.

The Fanfiction Glossary

The Fanfiction Glossary does have a page now, if anyone wants to add to it, or you could check the wayback versions of the Fanfiction Glossary and add missing information to the Fanlore articles about the listed glossary terms.

The Hellhound Universe

Genres

Could do with articles for humour/humor, horror, romance and other basic literary genres.

Feels

Anyone know what exactly "feels" means? It's prevalent in The Hobbit (film series) fandom as of 2013.

I've seen it in Sherlock BBC, too. --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 16:26, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
There is a brilliant essay on the difference between "Feels" and "Feelings" on DW, and there's some documentation of when the term appears on AO3. I'll start a page, and if anyone wants to jump in, please do! --the old briar pipe (talk) 19:00, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Done! I need some help with one of the citations, since it's a search that includes brackets in the URL, and I can never remember how to code that properly on a wiki. Also, needs more citations and info! --the old briar pipe (talk) 20:21, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Ooh, thanks! Not being on Tumblr, I'd assumed it was only used for characters. I've never been sure how to code square brackets, either. Espresso Addict (talk) 20:47, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Nice job. I really like how you explained it. And to have stats and info about early usage of a term is valuable info that's so much harder to find later. --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 20:59, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Websites

Listing Sites/Articles

Many early websites have disappeared. Just as fandom shifted online from zines, so it has increasingly been shifting from personal websites to LJ/DW or FF.net. Now, people are dropping personal sites to archive on AO3. There are many fan websites still needing documentation—even just listing them (with their URLs) for each fandom would help.

Aestheticism

Aestheticism was one of the first widely-accessible sources of information on BL ("yaoi") in English. The article is a stub, but it has references that could be used to flesh it out. The owners are still around AFAIK; the site's just down. Someone could find them and ask them about the site history and their future plans.

Facebook

The Facebook page is a stubby stub and could use anything about what fandom looks like there.

Freedom of Speech Archive

Anyone know anything about this site?

GeoCities Rescue Project

  • Many of the pages created for this project are still stubs or don't include updated links. [3]
  • GeoCities could use more fannish perspective.

Mangafox.com

  • A page about this very successful site that offers scanlated manga to read online, but that is often hosted without the scanlator's permission. It's actually one site among many owned by the for-profit U.S.?/China?-based company NOEZWork, Inc / NOEZ.com that host fanworks like scanlations, fansubs, fanart, etc., often without fan permission, and make money off ad revenue. A sneakier, successful version of monetizing fans a la FanLib, Narutofan.com, and the like. A couple of links:

http://www.batoto.net/forums/topic/2091-mangafox-how-noez-does-business/ http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?page=1&tid=28000 http://japanzai.com/index.php?topic=1619.0 http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://noez.com (older pages with info about NOEZ's corporate plans before they were taken down)

The Sith Academy

This page needs details! The who, what, when, where and how of The Sith Academy and its community of fans.

Edited to add: I added some background. --MeeDee 05:16, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Zine Art

A page dedicated to the history, styles, whatever of Zine Art. We've got lots of images that we can use as examples!

Additional page(s) for Cover Art or Cover Design - perhaps also comparing zine covers to other types of fanworks that might use covers - filk albums, fanmixes, podfic, ...? (Check out the Merlin podbook covers)

4chan

4chan and its boards need a page. (This is in progress at /a/.)

Conventions in the UK and Australia

I've been working at making pages for UK and AUS media conventions. The STAG and IDIC newsletters, as well as Hypertension, have a great deal of information, but we need more information from fans who are more in the know than I. --Mrs. Potato Head 17:00, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Anime & Manga Fandom & Related Fandoms

There are many single, specific pages you can add:

If the page you want to add is not listed on a "List of" page, just add it to the appropriate category. Many of those pages are still woefully incomplete.

If you want a bigger challenge:

If you notice anything missing from these lists that needs work, please add it!
