Fanlore Bingo is Back!

Our ever-popular Bingo Challenge returns this year from Tuesday 1st June to Monday 14th June, and new and expert editors alike are invited to take part!

In Fanlore Bingo, editors fill out a 3x3 square bingo card by completing editing tasks, and there are two cards to complete! Check out the Challenge Help page to learn more about taking part, and then grab your Beginner Bingo card or your Expert Bingo card to start the challenge! Each card has more details below it about how to complete the editing tasks. If you're feeling ambitious, you can complete both cards for a Total Blackout...

Questions? Head to the Bingo Challenge talk page and a friendly editor will assist you, or drop a line to the Fanlore Committee!

Good luck and happy editing!

Have a go at our simple editing challenges, or if you're feeling ambitious, try one of the advanced bonus challenges, and see if you can earn all of our retro 80s badges!

Fanlore is celebrating 1 million edits!

We did it! Fanlore just hit our one million edit milestone! This is a huge achievement and we couldn't have done it without our amazing, dedicated community of editors. Every single edit helps Fanlore to preserve the amazing creativity and passion of fandoms old and new, and carry out our mission to record and preserve our shared fannish history.

To celebrate, we're running a scavenger hunt all week over on our Dreamwidth! We've put together a range of questions that will have you voyaging across Fanlore for the answers - and the first person to answer all 13 correctly will win a Citrus Scale sticker set, previously available as a limited edition OTW donor premium! Plus, everyone who takes part will win an exclusive badge for their User page, and everyone who gets all questions correct will win an additional badge!

What are you waiting for? Let the scavenging begin!
