List of Finder Communities

Nominated by Oxymora on June 18, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Hesitant yes, would look better with a more expanded intro? --Alex (talk) 17:43, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
I tweaked the intro a tiny bit. Does that help? MPH (talk) 13:39, 24 June 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes. I like the intro as it is — it makes me a bit hesitant that there are so many red links, though of course it's valuable as a list regardless. Perhaps it can be scheduled as a featured article a bit further in the future, perhaps a few more of the linked pages might exist by then? After the other four here, I mean. --PriscillaD (talk) 08:07, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Not yet. I agree with PriscillaD. It's a great resource, but right now it's a reference to "things to Google." I think definitely a featured article, but if we can clean up the links, it'll be better. - Liz (talk) 17:41, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Maybe. Also hesitant - yes, is good content; but many of the links themselves are outdated and don't have Fanlore pages of their own. OTOH, it's not a bad idea for some feature pages to be "here's an awesome thing that we want you to know about... see how it's missing stuff? YOU COULD ADD THAT!" Elf (talk) 19:07, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes for all the reasons already mentioned. Oxymora (talk) 20:38, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Maybe: just FYI I edited the first paragraph and updated the Fic Finding page to more clearly distinguish the two.--aethel (talk) 19:04, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes: My feeling is that featured pages can sometimes point to the broadness of the content we cover. --Somefangirl(talk) 9:05, 3 Aug 2017 (UTC)
Maybe I think that both Liz and Elf have good points.--Syd (talk) 01:25, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant Yes I like the idea and I think it could be useful, but I agree that it should be cleaned up first. Victorywings (talk) 16:41, 24 August 2017 (UTC)Victorywings

Interphase (Star Trek: TOS zine)

Nominated by PriscillaD on June 26, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Hesitant yes. Not my favorite? Definitely a landmark zine for a few reasons, but I feel like the information is scattered and jumps topics a bit. -- Liz (talk) 18:59, 26 June 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes? It doesn't blow my mind, but it's a good page. --Alex (talk) 18:11, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes - I'd like to see more internal links added first, esp in the quoted sections. Elf (talk) 20:11, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Undecided. It's a good page with lots of info, but because it's broken up so much and the topic is very narrow, I think it won't capture the attention of many people. Oxymora (talk) 20:38, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes Lots of interesting pictures and quotes. I actually like this page a lot, but I agree that it's a little hard to follow as it is now. --Somefangirl(talk) 9:05, 3 Aug 2017 (UTC)
Maybe. For all of the reasons mentioned above. --Syd (talk) 01:27, 21 August 2017 (UTC)

Hurt/Comfort

Nominated by PriscillaD on July 9, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Hesitant yes,this is a good page, but I'm concerned that the intro might not be long enough? --Alex (talk) 18:25, 13 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes, but Alex might be right. --Oxymora (talk) 10:10, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes I think the intro could use some beefing up too, but it's a fascinating page --Somefangirl(talk) 9:05, 3 Aug 2017 (UTC)
Yes I really enjoyed the page as a whole, but I agree with everyone above.--Syd (talk) 01:20, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes What a great page! It was informative and relevant, but I agree that there's always room for improvement. Victorywings (talk) 16:44, 24 August 2017 (UTC)Victorywings
Yes. If you're in fandom, you know what H/C is, so this is pretty much universally interesting. Also, I really like the page content. --Liz (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes Although I'd like to see more internal links, especially in the quoted sections. Also agree that the intro could be expanded. Elf (talk)
I've now expanded the intro a bit with a quote from a relevant essay from TWC no. 25 - can people check to see if that improves the intro enough to satisfy? --Enchantedsleeper (talk) 15:37, 16 September 2017 (UTC)

FanLib

Nominated by PriscillaD on July 9, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Conditional yes. It's a very good page, but the intro will need to be reworked. I don't feel it can be transcluded as is. --Alex (talk) 13:37, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Conditional yes. I agree with Alex. --Oxymora (talk) 10:12, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
update: I worked on rearranging the sections, updated the intro. MPH (talk) 19:09, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes I think the new intro looks nice. --Somefangirl(talk) 9:05, 3 Aug 2017 (UTC)
Yes --Syd (talk) 01:36, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Yes. nicely organized and informative. --Shannon (talk) 01:48, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
Maybe. I think the page itself needs work. If someone's willing to beef it up, then yes, it's relevant and a fun topic. --Liz (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Conditional yes. I agree the intro needs to be reworked. Elf (talk) 19:14, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

RPF

Nominated by PriscillaD on July 9, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Strong yes--Alex (talk) 13:41, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes. MPH (talk) 19:05, 15 July 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes with the current intro. I don't like featuring a page where the blurb consists mostly of "for works on x see x RPF". --Oxymora (talk) 10:20, 16 July 2017 (UTC)
Yes. I do agree with Oxymora about the intro, though; it could use a little reworking, but I think it's still good enough overall.--Syd (talk) 01:12, 21 August 2017 (UTC)
Conditional Yes It's a good page and there are no red flags, but I agree that the intro could use some love. Victorywings (talk) 16:49, 24 August 2017 (UTC)Victorywings
LOL YES. Such a good page, and you've got the lovely divide of people who will read because YES RPF and the people who will read because it's like watching a train wreck. --Liz (talk) 19:11, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Hesitant yes - I'd love to see a section on the legality of RPF, and possibly a mention of mainstream commercial RPF. (E.g. "Dream date with rockstar" articles in teen magazines.) Elf (talk) 19:14, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Feedback

Nominated by Mrs. Potato Head on August 30, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Hesitant yes. It's a good article, but the second line of the intro has some grammar issues at the moment and doesn't read very well. I'm gonna see if I can sort it into something that makes more sense. --Enchantedsleeper (talk) 11:57, 3 September 2017 (UTC)
(I've since edited this to my satisfaction, so it's a proper yes from me)--Enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:31, 10 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I like the page. --Alex (talk) 18:14, 3 September 2017 (UTC)

LiveJournal

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on September 3, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Very comprehensive page about a key topic (well, platform) in fandom :)

Yes. MPH (talk) 17:37, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Review

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on September 3, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Yes. MPH (talk) 17:37, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Deathfic

Nominated by Alex on September 3, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

Yes, I like the page - although the thumbnail for the first image doesn't seem to be showing at the moment. (Not sure how to fix it, as the code appears fine...) --Enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:56, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
Yes. MPH (talk) 17:37, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Little Black Dress

Nominated by enchantedsleeper on September 7, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags.

A fun and interesting pan-fandom subject.

Yes. MPH (talk) 17:38, 10 September 2017 (UTC)

Blair's Hair

Nominated by Mrs. Potato Head on September 13, 2017. As of this writing, the page has a good intro and no content flags. Very fandom-specific, but it also touches on warnings and illustrates a strong fanon trope, which may transfer to other fandoms. The page is also a little sassy and has a spark.

Yes from me! I enjoyed reading this xD Enchantedsleeper (talk) 20:37, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
