Welcome to FanloreProject:IT! This project was created due to the expansive nature of the IT fandom, which is not yet properly documented on Fanlore. You can contact us via this page's talk page or by joining the unofficial Fanlore Discord server.

Scope

Anything and everything IT-related, including:

Guidelines

We will hopefully:

  • Create stubs with extremely reckless abandon.
  • Remember to create redirects.
  • Summarize any important Discord conversations on the relevant talk page(s).
  • Not only keep PPOV in mind but also actively go in search of new opinions in new places.
  • Archive all external links within our articles, in order to prevent link rot.

To Do

  • Go through AO3 to find IT ships not already listed, then add them to their respective character pages: Bill, Ben, Mike, Eddie, Stan, Pennywise, Henry, Patrick, Victor, Belch
  • Go through AO3 to find more tropes and genres to add our fandom's links to
  • Add 8tracks fanmixes for: Stan, The Losers Club, Pennywise
  • Add fanmixes from other sites (Spotify) to proper pages
  • Add fanvids from YouTube to proper pages, with a summarizing screen cap or two
  • Add HCs from Tumblr to proper pages
  • Link fanarts from Tumblr, Instagram, DeviantArt, and other legitimate (real sources, not stolen art) places to proper pages
  • Add fics from Wattpad to proper pages
  • Add AO3/FF.net tag links to this page for an easier time listing fics on respective trope/genre pages
  • Make all fanwork links annotated
  • Create Fan Profiles for creators (see if there is a universal name they wish to go by, in case on multiple platforms;) remember to add all categories that apply, to the bottom of the fan page:
==References==
<references/>
[[Category:Fans]][[Category:IT Artists]][[Category:IT Authors]]
{{FanloreProject:IT/NavBox}}
  • Create Fanfiction and Fanwork pages and quote reactions to that work; remember to add all categories that apply, to the bottom of the fanwork's page:
==References==
<references/>
[[Category:Fanworks]][[Category:Fanart]][[Category:Fanfiction]][[Category:Podfics]][[Category:Vids]][[Category:IT]][[Category:IT Fanworks]]
{{FanloreProject:IT/NavBox}}
  • Create Discord pages for fandom-based servers

Some Things to Keep in Mind

  • Information for new editors is here. Among other things, it explains how to make an account, how to start a new page, and includes a lot of other helpful information.
  • Discussion on this page's talk page is encouraged, as is discussion on individual topic talk pages.
  • All edits, whether big tiny, or in-between, are welcome.
  • You don't have to be an "expert" on a subject. Adding what you know and feel passionate about are pieces of the puzzle, and ones that hopefully inspire others to expand on the topic.
  • All typos, mistakes, and errors are easily corrected. Don't let perfection hobble you.
  • Remember that Fanlore, like all wikis, is a collaborative effort, and may be edited by anyone.
  • Pages are not "owned" or controlled by any single person or group of people.
  • Pages and the information on them are only as robust, encompassing, and accurate as the information added by interested and enthusiastic fans like you.
  • Fanlore practices and encourages a Fanlore:Plural Point of View.
  • See this help page, for titling pages.
