Zayn Malik

Nominated by user:aethel on 9 May 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Maybe I'd say it's 2/3 of the way to being a featured article - lots of interesting detail on the page. But the introduction as it stands needs work, because that's the bit we pull out and put on the front page of Fanlore. "he was the prettiest member of the boy band One Direction" is such a strange and unsubstantiated statement - we can't put that on the front page xD Also, a lot of the details cited in the body of the article, like the rumours of drug use, need citations - these are dangerous allegations to be throwing around without a source, even if they're well known within the fandom. enchantedsleeper (talk) 09:15, 10 May 2018 (UTC)
Not yet. Definitely agree re: the need for an expanded intro, and I think many of the sections need more information/citations. In general, I'm a little ambivalent about featuring this page - but with some work, maybe it could be a good it. - Fandomgeographies (talk) 15:52, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
Maybe: I agree with others who have said it needs a better intro -- - Kingstoken (talk) 23:23, 03 June 2018 (UTC)
Not Yet. I think the intro feels too short and I don't like the "see Wikipedia" for details. I'm missing some more content in regards that he and Payne seem to have been much more famous in the fandom and in media and why that could be in the intro.

Puppygate

Nominated by fandomgeographies on May 22, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Heck to the yes! I fell down the rabbit hole of learning about this incident a little while ago and it's fascinating. Great page as well. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 22:41, 26 May 2018 (UTC)
Yes--aethel (talk) 02:34, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes MPH MPH (talk) 18:17, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes - even though I'd prefer a subsection on "Rabid Puppies," because the two groups had some substantial differences. Elf (talk) 20:15, 10 June 2018 (UTC)

Scanlation

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on June 1, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Super detailed page, and covers a topic from non-western fandom, which it's always good to feature more of :) --enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:34, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes! This is super cool. - Fandomgeographies (talk) 22:29, 1 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes: Very detailed -- Kingstoken (talk) 23:14, 03 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes MPH MPH (talk) 18:17, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Also Yes from me. WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:50, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Boldly Writing: A Trekker Fan and Zine History, 1967 - 1987

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on June 4, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

I came across this page and really enjoyed reading it. It's a well-written page about an interesting piece of fandom history. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:50, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes: A lot of citations and references, which is nice to see Kingstoken (talk) 22:56, 04 June 2018 (UTC)

Virtual Season

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on June 4, 2018. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

I think this is a really cool topic (and not something I'd come across until very recently) and the page is quite comprehensive, though most of it is taken up by a list of examples. Do people think it's worthy of a feature? Does anything need adding first? I'd love to hear thoughts. --enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:54, 4 June 2018 (UTC)
Hesitant Yes: interesting topic, but it still feels like the article needs something, maybe some fan reaction, I'm not sure -- Kingstoken (talk) 22:48, 04 June 2018 (UTC)
I agree with Kingstoken, it needs some fan reactions. MPH MPH (talk) 18:19, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Maybe I also would like to see some Fannish reactions there as well. How are Virtual Seasons seen in some of fandoms, for exmaple if shows get rebooted later. Maybe some of this can be found in some of the articles linked in the list on the article? WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:50, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

11 Scott McCall-Stiles Stilinski Fanfics That Prove Teen Wolf Fans Are Nasty AF

Nominated by Kingstoken (talk) on June 5, 2018. The page has a good intro, no content flags and is well cited.

Yes: What a name! I very much enjoyed reading the page - I'd never heard about that incident before xD --enchantedsleeper (talk) 19:33, 7 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes MPH MPH (talk) 18:20, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes Auntags (talk) 21:12, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:50, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
Yes! - Fandomgeographies (talk) 23:01, 13 June 2018 (UTC)

Metafandom

Nominated by Elfwreck (talk) on June 10, 2018. Good basic page covering part of fandom history that newer fans aren't likely to be aware of.

Hesitant Yes: Feels a bit short, but I guess that there isn't more on the topic? WhatAreFrogs? (talk) 14:50, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Godawful Fan Fiction

Nominated by MPH (talk) on June 13, 2018. Was a popular site (for differing reasons), and part of an on-going fandom culture war. Lots of fan reactions on the page.
