1. Does meta belong in this category? Technically it is a fanwork, but I'm not sure.

2. I notice that a bunch of filk and zine stuff from Darkover is listed as subpages of Darkover, yet no other fics, vids, zines, etc. for other fandoms are subpages. Should the Darkover stuff be moved to top pages?

3. Should glossary pages like fanfiction, fanworks, etc. be in this category? I removed some glossary pages that were obviously miscategorised, but I wasn't sure about those ones.

Good idea, though I've tried to come up with a better example but find that none of them are any "blue-er." Mrs. Potato Head 02:47, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

I added one that's a fairly high profile fic and not Star Trek. I'm not married to it, though.--æthel 06:01, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Recursive Fandom Categories?

Inspired by Recursive Fanfiction, would it be possible to have a category for works with a recursive fandom? Pages which fit in this category would include Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality, Dreaming of Sunshine, Rigel Black Chronicles, Accidental Warlord and his Pack, Fallout: Equestria, Not Easily Conquered and all the examples on the Recursive Fandom page which exist already. When it comes to defining a recursive fandom, I suggest having at least 3 recursive fanworks which are of the recursed work (since that's the benchmark for ao3 canonical tags), and any kind of evidence of a fan community around that particular work(be that discord servers, dreamwidth pages, forums, Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook pages with significant discussion of the work, subreddits, in-person meetups or fandom gatherings).
