Help:People pages/General Template

From Fanlore
Jump to: navigation, search

For people who create the source materials for fandom, such as actors, showrunners, authors, etc. Examples: J.K. Rowling, AntVenom, and Jensen Ackles. For pages on fans, one should use a fan page template instead. Pages that use this template will automatically be categorized under the People category as long as the PersonProfile infobox is included.

Information in the template below is meant as a placeholder and should be replaced with the relevant content to your page. Editors should feel free to re-organize, add to, and change the order of the headers, as they only serve as a general guide. Copy the code located in the box and paste it into a page to use it.

For tips and expanded information on what content to add to a people page, refer to the People pages Help page. For help complying with Fanlore's Identity Protection policy and ethical practices when handling an individual's personal information, refer to the Identity Protection and Deceptive Practices pages. For help on naming a people page in which multiple people have the same name, refer to the Disambiguation Naming Conventions page.

'''Person name''' and info such as: date born, occupation, fandoms related to (such as books written, shows/films played in, podcasts created, etc). Brief introduction, which can be expanded on in later sections.

==Relationship with Fandom==

Relevant information about the person's relationship to their fandom. Have they commented on fanart/ships, had interviews with their fans, appeared at conventions, or commented on fans selling merchandise of their character(s)/intellectual property? Don't forget to add internal links to websites, characters, or fandoms [[using double brackets]] if they are mentioned.

===(Fandom Occurrence Here)===

Discuss an important fandom occurrence here, such as if they were involved in a controversy. If they were involved in multiple occurrences that need highlighting, more fandom occurrence sub-sections may be added.

===RPF===

If your person is also the subject of a real people fandom, and there's enough content for its own section, you can place that information here. This could include information on shipping, how those outside the fandom treat those within it, or fandom tropes. If the fandom also has its own article outside of the people page then the expanded information on the fandom can be added to the dedicated article, with a wikilink in this section pointing to that page.

==Fanworks==

If there is fanart of this person it can be added into the gallery below. If they are the center of real people fiction or a real person fandom, this is a good place to include some sample fanworks.
