Hi everyone! Feel free to use this section of the talk page to discuss the Bingo event this year, meet other editors, or just say "hi" and get to know people! We'll keep this open for the whole bingo event, and coming by here to leave a comment is one way you could edit a talk page. -- FBV (talk) 07:06, 31 May 2024 (UTC)

Feel free to chat here if you need help with the challenge as well and have a question! -- FBV (talk) 07:08, 31 May 2024 (UTC)
Hi everyone, I created a page for Edwin Paine from Dead Boy Detectives, feel free to add fanwork examples to the page to fulfill one of your squares. Also, if you're familiar with the series, his best friend and love interest Charles Rowland could use a page, for those who are trying to fulfill the character page square on the expert bingo card -- Kingstoken (talk) 00:47, 4 June 2024 (UTC)
Just popping in to say hi! I'm having a good time so far with bingo, though i'll be leaving most of the expert stuff until next week. -- FBV (talk) 19:36, 4 June 2024 (UTC)
I'm very excited about this bingo, I hope to ace it this time -- unlike what happened in previous years. I loved the design of the badges Ellakbhesse (talk) 02:00, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
Hi! Just wondering if the '5 internal links' goal needs to be on the same page or if doing links across multiple pages (adding up to 5 links) works too? MapleSchmaple (talk) 05:24, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
I went back and looked at the explanations on the help page and it does say five links on one page. If I could make a suggestion, I would check out the Category:Star Trek TOS Fanfiction, many articles in this category are notorious for missing links, like this one for example, The Edge of Certainty, it doesn't link to any of the Trek characters it mentions like Spock, McCoy, Kirk, and I'm sure if you looked through that category you could find other pages with a similar lack of links -- Kingstoken (talk) 20:47, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification! MapleSchmaple (talk) 06:29, 6 June 2024 (UTC)
I know you both already got total blackout, but I'm here to edit a Talk page for my own bingo card(s), and this was a good question MapleSchmaple, and something we can clarify for the future! As one of the committee members discussing tasks and one of the badge awarders, I would be happy for someone to add 5 internal links across multiple pages! I'm not sure if I'm overlooking what Kingstoken read, but I just see "five internal links to other Fanlore pages on any page", which to me indicates the "any page" doesn't have to be one singular page. At any rate, congrats to you both on total blackouts! Joanna R (talk) 02:20, 17 June 2024 (UTC)
Congrats to you too! And the clarification should help in future circumstances. If you need someone to double check for stuff like this in the future, I would be happy to! MapleSchmaple (talk) 06:33, 17 June 2024 (UTC)
Heya! I’m excited to do the bingo. I’ve been having a blast so far! There’s a bunch of red links at Project Sekai Colorful Stage if anyone is in the fandom and wants to do the character page square. 90PercentHuman (talk) 20:22, 5 June 2024 (UTC)
Welcome 90PercentHuman! I've noticed some edits from you on Worm and Sufficient Velocity, and I am very excited to see them. I am a fellow traveler from those parts (SV/SB etc) and it's always been on my to-do list to document some of the greatest fics and fan history from there. It's cool to see others on Fanlore from SV! -- FBV (talk) 07:49, 6 June 2024 (UTC)
