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.
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)
- A general discussion page where concerns and suggestions can be discussed and questions about the site can be asked.
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.
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)
- fancraft, Fannish Dolls, Fannish Knitting, Customizing Action Figures, Fannish Embroidery, Fannish Teddies (i.e. dressing teddy bears—similar to dolls—rather than in pictures).
- Related to action figures: Funko figurines! They can be customized so they're sort of a craft, but I think it's also interesting/important to include them, maybe as part of this new highly commercialized wave of fandom
- fan fashions and Category:Costuming, cosplay, Fannish Cooking TARDIS Cake Doctor Hoo cake based on Threadless-brand t-shirt
- other crafts?
- Tshirts, especially those sold online through sites like Redbubble, etsy, Teepublic
- Buttons! I'm really interested in these, but I don't know how to best capture/catalog them here
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)
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.
There needs to be a page not for LARPing or RPGs, but for the practice online role-playing, where you take up the roles of various characters and do dynamic storytelling with other people, usually on some sort of forum. I haven't done this in many years, though, and I know it's still a thing, but not what's happening with it/where it is.
Or, maybe a disambiguation page where Larping, RPGs and roleplaying in forums are all separate pages?
- Minors in Fandom - A recent discussion as of 2017, brought by Voltron: Legendary Defender fandom discourse and expanding generally ex. here, here, here, here, and here (see followups: specifically about VLD, and here.) Another resource to look at. (Or to be added to Fan Age and Fandom?)
- The controversy surrounding fanfiction commissions (or to be added on Attitudes Toward Fanfiction?) (links needed)
- Fanfiction Writers and Feedback, specifically comments - plus conjoining discussions of comparing fanfiction and fan art (?), and commenting etiquette ex. here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here here, here, here, here, here, here - perhaps focus on recent discussion re: this, as well as how platform (Tumblr & AO3 (2012-2017) vs LJ (2004-2012)) has affected this
- Fiction vs. Reality Discussion as seen here, here, here, here here, and here
- Lesbophobia in Fandom?
- Feminism and Fandom
- Shipwars like Zutara vs Kataang, IchiRuki vs IchiHime, Harry/Hermione vs Ron/Hermione, Klance vs Sheith, Stucky vs Stony, and many, many other shipwars could use their own pages. See Category: Shipwars
Did the Canon Overview, but this really is a massive fandom with a lot of characters. Needs Characters, Ships, and more examples of Fanworks / Fan events.
Pretty large fandom; deserves its own page.
Could use pages for major pairings
Ship pages for Makoto/Haruka, Rin/Haruka, Rei/Nagisa, and possibly Sousuke/Makoto. Maybe discuss the Rin/Haru and Makoto/Haru ship war on the fandom page? Also the sharkbaitshipping wank with YGO:Zexal fandom.
- Could use ship pages / list of ships, and maybe a more complete list of characters
- Needs to explain the differences between 1999 anime, 2011 anime, and manga
page needs to be created
A more complete list can be found at FanloreProject:Naruto! However, the most needed pages are probably:
- Ships: Sakura x Naruto, Sakura x Sasuke, Hinata x Naruto, Itachi x Sakura, Ino x Sakura, Ino x Shikamaru, Neji x Tenten, Gaara x Lee, Gaara x Naruto, Gai x Kakashi
- Other: Kishimoto Masashi, Anti-Naruto Ending,narutoforums.org, and tentatively Boruto although we'll have to discuss what the fandom categorization overlap should be there.
Page needs to be created: ships, reputation among anime fandom, etc.

A general article on (Western) comics fandom would be useful. At the moment, it's a disambiguation which gets linked all over the place.
- Pages that need expansion: List of DC Universes, Birds of Prey, Birds of Prey (TV), Gotham, Hellblazer, Constantine (TV), Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Wonder Woman, The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, Superman fandom, Batman Beyond, The Batman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, The Flash (DC Comics), The Flash (1990s), The Sandman, Legion of Super-Heroes, DC Super Hero Girls and Teen Titans

- pages needing more information: Lizzie McGuire, Wizards of Waverly Place, That's So Raven, High School Musical, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Hannah Montana, I Didn't Do It, Girl Meets World, Kim Possible, Life With Derek, Disney's Descendants, Liv and Maddie
- Disney RPF - main article needs more information and examples, also pairing pages need to be created
- pages that need expanded fandom and fanworks examples: Martha Jones, Amy Pond, Rose Tyler, River Song, Donna Noble
- also need pages for old school Who companions
- main article more detail and pages needed for most major characters & pairings
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.
- Many character pages and pairing pages are still stubs or need to be fleshed out. Most of the main characters' pages need some clean-up.
- Characters and pairings with redlinks on List of Harry Potter Pairing Names need to be created.
- More Harry Potter archives and communities could use pages.
- Fan reaction and fandom surrounding Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and Fantastic Beasts are needed.
- Typical hp fic tropes/mentions: Animagus, Azkaban, Yule Ball
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.
- needs more fandom information, what are the pairings?, notable fanworks, etc.
- 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):
- main article, as well as Seddie and any other relevant ships
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
- Character pages that need expansion: Arwen, Boromir, Éomer, Éowyn, Faramir
- Should have articles on Tolkien-inspired fan activities of the 1960s-70s, the original Mythopoeic Society, people who took their class notes in Elvish
- Pairings pages that need to be created: Merry/Pippin, Aragorn/Arwen, Faramir/Éowyn, also a page on interspecies slash (ie hobbit/human or elf)
- Pairings pages that need expansion: Legolas/Gimli
- Characters that need pages: The Wasp
- Character pages that need expansion: Black Panther, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Ant-man
- 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.
- The Avengers (Marvel) & The Earth's Mightiest Heroes - both need tropes, fanon, examples - more Meta.
- pages that need to be created: Ensemble Stars, Touken Ranbu
- pages that need expansion: Love Live! School Idol Project, Mystic Messenger
Could use a lot of additions, I don't know how many theater fans there are on here though. Some shows that need pages include Be More Chill, Falsettos, Firebringer, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812, and probably more I'm forgetting. The bootlegging of shows might deserve a page too, since it's a pretty big part of fandom. Stagedooring could use a mention in the theater page, since it's a common fan activity.
Mythology fandom could use its own page. Greek and Norse mythology have their own categories but they're pretty barebones.
- Mako Mori needs to be expanded
- need pages for most of the main characters and pairings
- 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.
- Pages that need expansion: 5 Seconds of Summer, Panic! at the Disco and Fall Out Boy
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 (2009) could use more attention, and may need updating/renaming to reflect a broader Richie movie base
- Character that need pages: Mycroft Holmes, Mrs. Hudson, Eurus Holmes
- List of Sherlock Holmes Communities and Forums is mostly LJ communities. Add mailing lists, etc.?
- Needs characters pages for all the main characters.
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).
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!
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)
Twilight RPF could also use expansion.
There are a lot of webcomics out there with huge and active fanbases, but very few pages in the Category:Webcomics.
- pages that need expansion: Questionable Content, Hanna Is Not A Boy's Name, Hark! A Vagrant
- pages that need to be created: Megatokyo, Penny Arcade, David Willis's stuff, Romantically Apocalyptic, Lackadaisy, A Redtail's Dream, Stand Still, Stay Silent, Kill Six Billion Demons, Ava's Demon, Unsounded, Year in Hereafter, and The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal
Additionally, the webcomic page probably should cover more information.
- main article could use expansion
- Pages that need to be created: Troyler, Lemma, Let's Play Markiplier, PewDiePie, Jacksepticeye, Ross's Game Dungeon, Jim Sterling, JonTron, Extra Credits, MatPat, CinemaSins
- Pages that need expansion: Dan Howell, Phil Lester, Tronnor, Game Grumps
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, Samurai Champloo, School of Rock, The History Boys. Also: Musical Theater, Science Fiction TV RPF, Ben Affleck/Matt Damon.
Serious anime fans usually follows the histories of animation studios as well as manga artists. Should probably have pages for Bones, Studio Trigger, Sunrise, Mappa, Madhouse, A-1 Pictures, and Kyoto Animation etc.
- main article could use more information
- pages that need to be created: Bayonetta, Castlevania, Deus Ex, Devil May Cry, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Flight Rising, Mortal Kombat, Neverwinter Nights, Saints Row, Sengoku Basara, Silent Hill, Sunless Sea, Streetfighter, Transistor, The Witcher (video game)
- pages that need expansion: Animal Crossing
- Dream Daddy - more needed on the genderbend wank
Anyone remember the vampire hobbits fad? It even spawned an archive of sorts at one point.
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.
Articles needed for:
Articles that need expansion:
- Supernatural (genre)
- Romantic Comedy
- & the other Category:Fandoms by Canon Type pages
I'm assuming links to Angels are re: their appearance in fic?
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 FF.net. 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.
Freedom of Speech Archive
Anyone know anything about this site?
- Many of the pages created for this project are still stubs or don't include updated links. 
- 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 / NOEZ.com 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, Narutofan.com, and the like. A couple of links:
http://www.batoto.net/forums/topic/2091-mangafox-how-noez-does-business/ http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?page=1&tid=28000 http://japanzai.com/index.php?topic=1619.0 http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://noez.com (older pages with info about NOEZ's corporate plans before they were taken down)
Needs fleshing out
- Could use expansion
Anyone ever active on Xanga?
- The main article needs expansion
Anime & Manga Fandom & Related Fandoms
There are many single, specific pages you can add:
- Anime and manga series not on Category:Anime or Category:Manga
- Use Template:FandombyText
- Add [[Category:Anime]] and/or [[Category:Manga]] (others as needed)
- Remember to focus on fandom, not canon.
- Characters, pairings, or groups (examples: Rukia Kuchiki, Sasuke x Naruto)
- Template:CharacterProfile for characters
- Template:PairingProfile for pairings/threesomes/moresomes
- Add [[Category:FANDOMNAME]], replacing FANDOMNAME with the canon the character/relationship comes from
- We don't have a template yet for groups; if you want one, just comment on Category_talk:Infoboxes.
- Scanlation groups at List of Scanlation Groups
- Add [[Category:Anime & Manga Fandom]] and/or [[Category:Doujin Fandom]]
- Fansub groups at List of Fansub Groups
- Clubs at List of Anime Clubs
- Cons at List of Anime Conventions
- Doujin at List of Doujinshi by Fandom
- Add [[Category:FANDOMNAME]], replacing FANDOMNAME with the canon the doujinshi is based on
- Doujin circles at List of Doujinshi Circles
- Websites not already listed at Category:Anime & Manga Fandom
- Add [[Category:Anime & Manga Fandom]]
- Specific parts of the fansub process (see [[ for details)
- Add [[Category:Translation]]
- Individual AMVs
- Add [[Category:FANDOMNAME]], replacing FANDOMNAME with the canon the AMV is based on
- Add [[YEAR]], replacing YEAR with the year the AMV was originally posted
- AMV, Cosplay, Doujin, and other Awards
- Add [[Category:Anime Music Video]], [[Category:Anime & Manga Fandom]], or [[Doujin Fandom]]
- Add [[YEAR]], replacing YEAR with the year the award was offered OR the decade if multiple years; add more decades as needed

- Add [[Category:FANDOMNAME]], replacing FANDOMNAME with the canon the fanwork is based on
- Add [[YEAR]], replacing YEAR with the year the fanwork was originally posted
- Add any medium-based categories that apply, like [[Visual Arts]], [[Crafts]], [[Multimedia]], [[Poetry]], [[Costuming]], etc. (if you're using a specific template like Template:Podfic, this will be added automatically for you)
- Common terms/tropes (example: mecha)
- Influential seiyuu, mangaka, directors, writers, character designers, etc. (example: Hayao Miyazaki)
- Add [[Category:Anime & Manga Fandom]]
- Remember to describe their impact on fans, not just the industry.
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:
- Cosplay is currently a short page, and all cosplay-related materials are under Category:Costuming or Category:Gaming & Role-Playing. There is no template for specific photo-sets or performances. You could request a template, as well as a separate category, if you wanted to tackle that topic. Request templates at Category_talk:Infoboxes
- Fansub and scanlation into languages other than English or in areas outside the U.S./Canada need a lot of work. If you're having trouble figuring out where to add that information, come check in on the talk pages.
- J-Drama, K-Drama, and TW-Drama could use many more series and general information. SG-Drama, HK-Drama, and C-Drama don't even have pages and categories yet.
- We need pages for Fan Dub, Manga Music Video, MAD, MMD, and possibly Anime Story Music Video, as well as pages on others terms and elements of video-related culture.
- Category:J-Pop Fandom, Category:J-Rock Fandom, and Category:K-Rock Fandom are tiny and need lots of work. Category:K-Pop Fandom is bigger but could still use some love.
- Category:Games is very small still.
- Know of any debates/discussions within a community, especially large, complicated, or highly visible ones? Those can get their own pages!
- Category:Debate (for debates, wanks, imbroglios, etc.) or Category:Discussion (for discussion communities, histories of long-term discussions, etc.)
- Template:EventProfile or Template:Activity
- Add [[Category:FANDOMNAME]], replacing FANDOMNAME with the fandom the debate or discussion happened in; OR add [[Category:Anime & Manga Fandom]] if it was a broader community debate.
- Vocaloid fandom needs lots of love, especially with pages pertaining to individual voices, like Hatsune Miku or Kaito.
If you notice anything missing from these lists that needs work, please add it!
