I'm not quite happy with the organization of the 1 Underage Fans and the sorting of fans' opinions–please discuss if you think of a better way. – caes (talk) 23:50, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Harassment & Abuse of Minors

I've put Examples Wanted under 1.1 Harassment & Abuse of Minors. For this section, I want to have info about situations in which minors have been taken advantage of through their involvement in fandom, which is a significant part of what's led to this discussion. This includes both abuse of fans by other fans and abuse of fans by fandom personalities. If you think of any examples, please add them to the page or link them here. – caes (talk) 23:50, 1 March 2019 (UTC)

Underage Characters Section

I've been fleshing out the sections more with my own experiences with fandom + adding/looking for citations. However, I am confused as to what is needed under the "Underage Characters" section, where it as some sub-sections for "Pedophilia," "Art vs. Writing," and "Response." The article already talks a lot about what pedophilia is and already has a response section, and I'm not sure what Art vs. Writing would be used for other than maybe some calling cards/tropes pedos use in their art. What are these sections meant to have in them? Patchlamb (talk) 00:56, 8 June 2020 (UTC)

I removed the sub-sections that only had internal links in them and nothing else (what I was asking about above), and moved the links to the "see also" bit in the infobox. If there are actually other things that need to be put into those sub-sections feel free to add them back and let me know what should go there. Patchlamb (talk) 20:32, 20 June 2020 (UTC)

Removing PPOV?

The PPOV tag was added in Mar 2019 but the page has filled out quite a bit between I think 2-3 diff editors + new citations/quotes. Is it possibly time to remove the PPOV tag? If anyone thinks the page still needs the tag let me know, otherwise I personally think it's got plenty of diff voices and I'll remove it. Patchlamb (talk) 17:54, 30 July 2020 (UTC)
