Page could use (these and more):

  • Examples of fanart, maybe upload of a couple of samples (and/or gifsets)
  • Common ships, including crossovers if there are any common ones
  • Fanon details about characters
  • More details about common tropes and settings
  • Fanfic communities, current and past, or tumblrs that feature it
  • Any drama/controversy details
  • Notes about BNFs in the fandom and what they are known for

I have no idea what fan art is popular. I've mostly seen gifsets of starlings and random London buildings. The common ship is the two leads. It's like 10x as popular as anything else. There isn't much fanon aside from Nightingale being gay and having a doomed, tragic love affair with Mellenby. The fic is all on AO3. This just isn't that big or wanky a fandom, but I've added a few things. Franzeska (talk) 10:04, 4 April 2017 (UTC)

Feel free to edit the suggestion notes above or add new ones; Rivers of London is going to be featured in April Showers and I wanted to give some ideas of what people could add to the page. I know basically nothing about this fandom other than "Franzi got a fic for it that she loved," which doesn't give me much idea of what could be added to the page.

how to deal with spoilers?

There are some major surprises in later books, it would be great to have a way to block them out unless people specifically chose to see them. --Msilfan (talk) 06:14, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

I don't know any script that would do them (I've seen them in action on news sites though, so I know they're possible. We can slap Template:Spoilers notice box on top of the page though. that would be some sort of help and warning --Alex (talk) 19:44, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Each book could have its own page and then be linked to the main series page so people have to choose the book they want and will only see spoilers if they choose to. --SavannahM (talk) 19:54, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
We have a spoilers template to warn people that recent canon spoilers appear on the page: Template:Spoilers. I think if spoilers are relevant to explaining subsequent fan activities, they need to be included, but if you don't need to mention (or aren't ready to write that part yet) how fans reacted to a spoiler, you don't need to include it. Unless there is significant and distinct fan activity revolving around each individual book, I would not create separate pages for those books. The focus of each page on the wiki needs to be fan activity, not canon information, which we can simply link to wikipedia for.--aethel (talk) 22:11, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
