The carnival is coming to town! Our annual Stub September editing challenge is back this month from the 7th - 20th September.
Everyone, from seasoned editors to people new to Fanlore, is welcome to participate in the challenge. You can win shiny new badges for participating and helping expand our empty or short pages. There may even be an additional badge for editors who go the extra mile of adding lots of content to a page!

Fanlore is pleased to announce that we've made some updates to our Cheatsheet for editors!
The Fanlore Cheatsheet is a quick reference sheet to help editors (both new and experienced!) with common types of wiki formatting. In the interest of making the Cheatsheet as useful and applicable as possible to editors, we've replaced some less frequently used formatting types with more common types of wiki formatting that weren't previously listed.
Some of the new additions to the Cheatsheet include:
- How to offset quotations inside of boxes
- How to format a series of images as a gallery
- How to add footnoted asides with additional information in a dedicated 'Notes' section
- How to use Displaytitle to change the capitalization of a page from title case (capitalized words) to lowercase
- How to use Defaultsort to alphabetically sort a page by a letter other than the first letter of its title
We've also made the descriptions of what each listed type of formatting does more informative, with links out to additional Help pages for more information.
What types of formatting do you find yourself looking up most often? Is there a formatting type you wish was listed on the cheatsheet? Let us know and we'll consider adding it to the list!
