Stub September is an annual month-long challenge/festival devoted to adding information to existing Fanlore articles, especially those that are stubs. Fans are also encouraged to add to articles that need expansion and articles that need more example fanworks.
Stub September was first held in 2012.
At the beginning of the first Stub September, there were nearly 1800 existing pages on Fanlore identified as stubs.
The second(?) Stub September introduced weekly themes to help fans decide which article(s) to work on. The themes were meant merely as suggestions, and fans were welcome to work on any article at any time.
At the beginning of September, there were over 1600 existing pages on Fanlore identified as stubs.
- Week 1 (1-6 September): Fandoms
- Week 2 (7-13 September): Characters
- Week 3 (14-20 September): Relationships (This encompasses pairings, threesomes and moresomes, and gen relationships.)
- Week 4 (21-27 September): Fan Communities (This includes websites, forums, mailing lists, and other fan spaces.)
At the beginning of September, there were over 1900 existing pages on Fanlore identified as stubs. Earlier that year was the introduction of June Bloom, which may have contributed to the increase in stubs.
- Week 1 (1-5 September): Fandoms(?)
- Week 2 (6-12 September): Characters
- Week 3 (13-19 September): Relationships
- Week 4 (20-26 September): Fan Communities
- Week 5 (27-30 September): Fandoms again!
The fourth Stub September dropped the weekly themes in favor of posting periodic tips (where?) relating to finding and expanding stubs, and some suggestions to help in deciding what articles to work on.
At the beginning of September, following the second celebration of June Bloom, there were over 2,000 existing pages on Fanlore identified as stubs.
At the beginning of September, there were nearly 2,900 existing pages on Fanlore identified as stubs.
