Stub September is here again!

Stub September is a month-long challenge whose aim is to improve the 2000+ pages on Fanlore that are identified as stubs. There are also two other types of articles to focus on this month: pages that need expansion and examples wanted. The Wiki Committee will be posting some tips and tricks for locating stubs and finding inspiration, so keep an eye on the Fanlore Dreamwidth account for more!
