Please edit this page to add topics or specific pages to the list that you would like to see on the wiki. New editors (and anyone else) who want to add content to the wiki, but don't know where to start, can check this list and start on anything that tickles their fancy.

A complete list of wanted pages (automatically generated) can also be found here.


This section contains tasks that don't require any particular fannish knowledge but are still necessary and any help would be appreciated. Mostly it's tagging pages with the correct categories and similar routine stuff.

See Fanlore:Gardeners/Tasks.

Infrastructure-ish Page Wish

Some kind of What should we (re)name x page? page, where fl editors can more easily/centrally brainstorm ideas together about what to name or rename certain pages might be really handy. (See User_talk:Facetofcathy#Name_the_Page)


This section contains a wish list for fannish topics that either do not have adequate coverage on Fanlore or are not yet represented here at all.



Fan video game development

In #yuletide, we were discussing fan video game projects like the Chrono Trigger sequel and how they routinely get shut down by video game companies.

Also worth discussing: Game mods, and how game company reactions vary. (Some accept them; some love them; some do everything they can to squelch them.)

May need a video game equivalent to the Professional Author Fanfic Policies page; however, unlike authors, game companies rarely issue clear statements on their opinion on fan game activities. Also, legal copyright status of those is much blurrier.


This section is for fandom wank or imbroglios that aren't adequately covered.


WIP: We're working on this admin article!

List fandoms here; place details in the individual fandom's talk page.


Despite huge followings, these fandoms have weak support at Fanlore. Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, Korrasami, Makorra The Legend of Korra, Adventure Time, Bee and Puppycat, Bravest Warriors, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, SpongeBob SquarePants, Phineas and Ferb, Regular Show, Bob's Burgers, The Amazing World of Gumball, The Simpsons, Invader Zim - many pages are stubs or need expansion, or don't mention major ships.

Older cartoons need to be expanded or started such as Extreme Ghostbusters, As Told By Ginger, Braceface, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Code Lyoko, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, and Toy Story to name a few. Some actually had a large fanbase and fandom history but there is little info about them.


A general article on (Western) comics fandom would be useful. At the moment, it's a disambiguation which gets linked all over the place.

Youtube Fandoms

DC Comics

Many major characters that have a strong fandom presence still have no article, and the rest is mostly stubs. Almost no pairings have pages, or if they do they are mainly stubs.


Doctor Who


Show page could use more sample/notable fanworks. Most character pages need more fandom, pretty please. Adding some placeholder bits of canon info and obvious stuff like Idol Reflections/Ship Manifesto essays if they exist just to have something, but no idea about other notable meta on the characters or notable fanworks. If anyone who's actually been fannish about the show can add more fandom info to balance pages out that'd be lovely.


Pairing names moved onto their own page. Pages created for popular stories and fansites. More on fanart and other fandom things besides just fic, maybe. Any other opinions and perspectives, since the main Hanson article has been edited mostly by one person up to this point.

Harry Potter

  • An article on Pottermore would be interesting; my impression is that many fans hated it, but a balanced view would be useful


More fandom information is needed - this was a fairly large fandom back in its heyday. So far there is only 2 pairing pages: Nathan/Peter and Peter/Claire, but they have barely anything to them. More pairings especially the popular ones are needed (Claire/Nathan, Peter/Nikki, Peter/Sylar, Claire/Sylar, Hiro/Charlie to name a few). There are currently no character pages, so that is needed as well.

There are some Heroes vid pages, but other fanworks are needed. Other archives, fanfiction, and websites need pages.


More information about the movies&movie fandom and how they relate to the series would be nice. (ee discussion on [the talk page])


  • The fandom page could use more content, for example about various wanks and controversies, the fandom' reputation, and fandom on Tumblr. It also needs more citations and could use a clean-up.
  • Few characters pages exist and those that do need a lot more fandom content. Same goes for pairings.
  • There are plenty of fanworks that deserve their own pages.
  • Something about the history of MSPA Forum Adventures would be great.
  • A couple of really prevalent Homestuck-specific genres and/or AU categories might benefit from mentions, such as (feel free to add):
    • Sadstuck


Pretty much all pairing and character pages but Arthur, Eames and Arthur/Eames need more content - Yusuf, Saito, Ariadne, Dom Cobb, Robert Fischer, Mal, Ariadne/Yusuf, Dom Cobb/Mal, Arthur/Dom Cobb and so on. Adding more fanworks and creators would be great too.


There a a bunch of stubs for bands, but very little info about the fandom or fans. Needs the perspective of someone active in the fandom (are there any Kpop fans on Fanlore?) This is a longshot, but more info about the Korean fandom would be awesome.

Lord of the Rings and other Tolkien


Several characters, mostly those not (or not yet) included in the MCU need pages. Among those are: Black Panther, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, The Wasp, Ant-man, and a bunch that I'm forgetting.

Other fandoms definitely needs expanding (or creating) especially for the comicverses but even some of the film-fandoms: Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The Incredible Hulk (film), Spider-Girl, The Amazing Spider-Man, Thor (comics), X-Force, Runaways, X-Factor, Excalibur (X-Men), Young Avengers‎, Guardians of the Galaxy‎. A lot of the Marvel Characters pages are stubs that desperately in need of more fanworks and fandom history, a lot more characters need to be added as well.


Missing. One particular thing that would be interesting: From my outside perspective, hurt/comfort with physical injuries seems to be unusually common in Overwatch fanart. I'd love to know if that is true, and if yes, read more about that aspect of the fandom.


There are many popslash authors/websites that remain to be documented on their own pages. The 'N Sync page is a stub; there are a lot of ways it could be developed--maybe an overview of the group members as characters, and their evolution in the fandom, or the impact of each cd and subsequent tour on the fandom and the fiction. Perhaps a list of the most influential media appearances. And so on.


Several character and pairing pages (for example Sheppard/Weir, John/Teyla, Carson Beckett/Rodney McKay, Aiden Ford, ...) could use more fanwork examples and references to meta. Many more vids, stories, and other fanworks could have their own pages.

Sherlock Holmes

Star Trek

Other than Star Trek and NASA, there's very little about the significant intersection of the fandom and the broad field of science. I think we need a Science and Star Trek page (or something along those lines).

Team Fortress 2

TF2 only has a very basic main page, and only one other page. It really needs more fandom information, character information and ships (Medic/Heavy springs to mind). It could really use some love from someone familiar with the fandom!

TSCC - Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Show page could use more sample fanworks. Any character pages would be good. Anyone who was fannish about the show interested in adding fanworks/meta/links?


The fandom is so huge, yet the fanlore page barely says anything but statistics gleaned by non-Twilight-fans, and doesn't even mention any popular fanwriters and fanartists (or specific fanworks)

I created the Twilight RPF page but don't really know what to put in it. I hope someone else will enrich it. --msilverstar 05:16, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
I recently found this site/wiki which I'm very excited about because I love learning about the backgrounds to different Fandoms. Just a quick note on the Twilight RPF page (as I come from the "Twihard" days and have also done a ton of beta-editing in the Twilight FF realm) is that from everything I read/encountered/edited, this was and is probably the least prevalent form of FF. I wasn't sure where else to make note, so once an admin/mod reads this, feel free to delete, or let me know if I've misstepped. It's definitely not my intention. Thanks!

Some stats/maybe-interesting info on fic-deleting/sharing in the fandom from a Twilight fan just came up here: (up to 65% completely monofannish (feral?) fans, fic-deleting for possible monetary gain and fic-sharing against author's wishes commonplace) --Sk 18:49, 18 April 2011 (UTC)


There are a lot of webcomics out there with huge and active fanbases, but very few pages in the. Just a few off the top of my head that should probably have pages: Questionable Content, Megatokyo, Penny Arcade, Hanna Is Not A Boy's Name, Hark! A Vagrant, David Willis's stuff, Romantically Apocalyptic and Lackadaisy Additionally, the webcomic page probably should cover more information.


  • A page needs to be created about Youtube and its impact on fans, fan activities and fandoms.
  • Pages should be created for popular Youtubers/ships of Youtubers including Troyler, Lemma and Tronnor.

Other Fandoms

Fandoms that have Crack Van fandom overviews but no Fanlore articles: Ace Lightning, Ai no Kusabi, Big Time Rush, Chrono Crusade, Fairly OddParents, Gatchaman/Battle of the Planet, Gorgeous Carat, Lackadaisy, Let Dai, Lie to Me, McFly, Raffles, The Amateur Cracksman, Reservoir Dogs, Rómeó és Júlia, S.W.A.T., Samurai Champloo, School of Rock, Swordspoint, TRON, The History Boys, Toy Soldiers, Uncharted. Also: Musical Theater, Science Fiction TV RPF, Ben Affleck/Matt Damon.

Video Games

I can't believe we don't have an article on these! Another thing that's linked all over the place.

I made a Video Games article but I'm not pleased with it at all. It needs more content from someone versed in more than a handful of games. LeaHazel (talk) 11:28, 7 August 2014 (UTC)



Anyone remember the vampire hobbits fad? It even spawned an archive of sorts at one point.

Choose Not to Warn

Anyone feel like taking this massive topic on?

The Fanfiction Glossary

The Fanfiction Glossary does have a page now, if anyone wants to add to it, or you could check the wayback versions of the Fanfiction Glossary and add missing information to the Fanlore articles about the listed glossary terms.


Could do with articles for Comedy, Tragedy, Action/Adventure, Romance, Mystery, Crime, and other basic literary genres.

Expand the articles:


Listing Sites/Articles

Many early websites have disappeared. Just as fandom shifted online from zines, so it has increasingly been shifting from personal websites to LJ/DW or Now, people are dropping personal sites to archive on AO3. There are many fan websites still needing documentation—even just listing them (with their URLs) for each fandom would help.


Aestheticism was one of the first widely-accessible sources of information on BL ("yaoi") in English. The article is a stub, but it has references that could be used to flesh it out. The owners are still around AFAIK; the site's just down. Someone could find them and ask them about the site history and their future plans.


The Facebook page is a stubby stub and could use anything about what fandom looks like there.

Freedom of Speech Archive

Anyone know anything about this site?

GeoCities Rescue Project

  • Many of the pages created for this project are still stubs or don't include updated links. [1]
  • GeoCities could use more fannish perspective.

  • A page about this very successful site that offers scanlated manga to read online, but that is often hosted without the scanlator's permission. It's actually one site among many owned by the for-profit U.S.?/China?-based company NOEZWork, Inc / that host fanworks like scanlations, fansubs, fanart, etc., often without fan permission, and make money off ad revenue. A sneakier, successful version of monetizing fans a la FanLib,, and the like. A couple of links:*/ (older pages with info about NOEZ's corporate plans before they were taken down)

The Sith Academy

This page needs details! The who, what, when, where and how of The Sith Academy and its community of fans.

Edited to add: I added some background. --MeeDee 05:16, 9 October 2011 (UTC)


A major journalling site we don't cover at all.

Zine Art

A page dedicated to the history, styles, whatever of Zine Art. We've got lots of images that we can use as examples!

Additional page(s) for Cover Art or Cover Design - perhaps also comparing zine covers to other types of fanworks that might use covers - filk albums, fanmixes, podfic, ...? (Check out the Merlin podbook covers)


4chan and its boards need a page. (This is in progress at /a/.)

Conventions in the UK and Australia

I've been working at making pages for UK and AUS media conventions. The STAG and IDIC newsletters, as well as Hypertension, have a great deal of information, but we need more information from fans who are more in the know than I. --Mrs. Potato Head 17:00, 14 February 2012 (UTC)

Anime & Manga Fandom & Related Fandoms

There are many single, specific pages you can add:

If the page you want to add is not listed on a "List of" page, just add it to the appropriate category. Many of those pages are still woefully incomplete.

If you want a bigger challenge:

If you notice anything missing from these lists that needs work, please add it!
