Contents

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.

Maintenance

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

  • A general discussion page where concerns and suggestions can be discussed and questions about the site can be asked.

Wishes

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.

Activities

Awards

Conventions

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)

Crafts

Misc

Zines

Zines from https://fandomzines.tumblr.com/, https://zineapps.tumblr.com/, https://zinefeed.tumblr.com/, and from tictail.

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)

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's a lot of room to talk about this in the Pokemon fandom, which has a long history of ROM hacks, fangames, and a (more recent history?) of having those fan games shut down by Nintendo.

RP

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?

is that not what Fandom RP basically is?

Conflicts

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

Fanart

Fandoms

WIP: We're working on this admin article!

Anime/Manga

Sports Anime

Anime such as Free!, Haikyuu, Yuri on Ice, Kuroko no Basuke, etc. have a large umbrella fandom (see Age of Sail) so a page and category would be appreciated.

Boku no Hero Academia

Needs more examples of Fanworks / Fan events.

Bleach

Characters: Ichigo Kurosaki, Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, Ulquiorra Cifer, basically everyone not named Rukia or Orihime.

Bungou Stray Dogs

Pretty large fandom; needs expansion.

D.Gray-man

Could use pages for major pairings

Free!

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.

Catfishing wank? (Another link)

Haikyuu

  • team pages - with complete list of characters and fandom activity

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure

page needs to be created

Naruto

A more complete list can be found at FanloreProject:Naruto! However, the most needed pages are probably:

Osomatsu-san

Page needs to be created: ships, reputation among anime fandom, etc.

One Piece

Should we have a page about the debate over the treatment of women in One Piece? I'm actually not that into the OP fandom but I've heard the edges of this discussion, particularly in this interview with Oda from this summer where Oda claims that he doesn't really care if female readers have a problem with his perverted characters.

Blake's 7

Need articles on main characters: Vila Restal, Cally, Jenna Stannis, Servalan

Book Fandoms

Writers

YA fandoms

Caprica

  • need ships, meta and more general detail

Cartoons/Animation

Pages that need expansion: Gravity Falls, Korrasami, Makorra, The Legend of Korra, Adventure Time, SpongeBob SquarePants, Bob's Burgers, The Simpsons, Invader Zim, Extreme Ghostbusters, She-Ra: Princess Of Power, Thundercats, Toy Story, Ben 10, Scooby-Doo, Recess, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Pages that need to be created : Bee and Puppycat, Bravest Warriors, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Phineas and Ferb, Regular Show, The Amazing World of Gumball, As Told By Ginger, Braceface, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, Code Lyoko, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series, Xiaolin Showdown, Powerpuff Girls, Star vs The Forces of Evil, Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, American Dragon: Jake Long, Lego Ninjago, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Storm Hawks, Gargoyles (TV), Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go!, The Loud House, W.I.T.C.H., G.I. Joe, Thomas the Tank Engine, Slugterra, Ever After High, The Boondocks, Grojband, Metalocalypse, PAW Patrol, Jackie Chan Adventures, Looney Tunes, Animaniacs, Monster High, Secret Saturdays, The Last Unicorn.

Comics

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

Something comprehensive about the clash between fanboy gatekeepers and the diversity push in the 2010s? See Carol Corps, Kamala Korps, Escher Girls, the CBR Community reboot, etc.

European comics: Valérian and Laureline, Thorgal, The Adventures of Tintin, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec, Largo Winch.

US comics: The Wicked + The Divine, Lazarus, Invincible, Prophet, Jupiter's Legacy, I Kill Giants, Pretty Deadly, Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy‎, Preacher, The Sandman, Lumberjanes.

DC Comics

Disney

Doctor Who

Farscape

  • main article more detail and pages needed for most major characters & pairings

Firefly

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.

Game of Thrones

Characters that still need pages: Cersei Lannister, Tywin Lannister, Sandor Clegane, Petyr Baelish, Ygritte, Ramsay Snow, Joffrey Baratheon, Olenna Tyrell, Tormund Gaintsbane

Harry Potter

Heroes

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.

Highlander: The Raven

  • needs more fandom information, what are the pairings?, notable fanworks, etc.

Homestuck

  • 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
    • Fandomstuck
    • Elevatorstuck
    • Humanstuck
    • Kingdomstuck
    • Ladystuck
    • Lyricstuck
    • Meteorstuck
    • Petstuck
    • Piratestuck
    • Pocstuck
    • Marchingstuck
    • Promstuck
    • Trollstuck
    • Vampirestuck

iCarly

  • main article, as well as Seddie and any other relevant ships

Inception

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.

Kpop

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

Marvel

Earth-120703, Earth-96283, Earth-807128, Earth-9992, Earth-71612, Earth-71912, Earth-19919, Earth-61610, Earth-22312, Earth-21722, Earth-138, Earth-(No I.D#/Lou Ferrigno Hulk) And many, many more. Please add to this list if you discover more. Please delete after additions are made. ~INDEX~

Mobile Games

Musicals/Theater

  • 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 , Falsettos, Firebringer, and probably more I'm forgetting.
  • Pages that need expansion: Be More Chill, Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812
  • 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

Mythology fandom could use its own page. Greek and Norse mythology have their own categories but they're pretty barebones.

Pacific Rim

  • Mako Mori needs to be expanded
  • need pages for most of the main characters and pairings

Podcasts

Popslash

  • 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

Sherlock Holmes

Stranger Things

  • Needs characters pages for all the main characters.

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!

Twilight

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.

Webcomics

There are a lot of webcomics out there with huge and active fanbases, but very few pages in the Category:Webcomics.

Additionally, the webcomic page probably should cover more information.

YouTube

Other Fandoms

Fandoms that have Crack Van fandom overviews but no Fanlore articles: Ace Lightning, 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, The History Boys. Also: Musical Theater, Science Fiction TV RPF, Ben Affleck/Matt Damon.

Fandoms that have Newbie Guides but no Fanlore articles: Alexander the Great, Blood+, Dante's Cove, Drive, Hairspray, Life Unexpected, The Prophecy, Shark.

Serious anime fans usually follow 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.

Pages that need expansion: Ai no Kusabi, School of Rock

Video Games

Glossary

Anklebiters

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.

Genres

Articles needed for:

Articles that need expansion:

Tropes

I'm assuming links to Angels are re: their appearance in fic?

  • POV Outsider/Outside POV: prevalent in fanworks that expand on canon

Rants

Rant!

Websites

Amino

A platform becoming increasingly popular with younger fans. Needs expansions and more perspectives .

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 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

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?

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.

Mangafox.com

  • 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:

Mediaminer

Needs fleshing out

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)

Wordpress

  • Could use expansion

Xanga

Anyone ever active on Xanga?

4chan

  • The main article needs expansion

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!
