From Fanlore
Jump to: navigation, search

[redacted] has written five fan fictions. What is her importance to fandom that her real name needs to be logged on Fanlore, whether she cares or not?

I get the impression from the article that she only wrote slash as [redacted], and presumably wrote gen and did other fandom stuff under the name [redacted]? I am just assuming from what is here, I don't know her. However Fanlore has no 'notability' requirement. If someone thinks [redacted] and her work are worth documenting, then they are; she doesn't need to be 'important'. If you have some reason to think that she has changed her stance and would prefer her name not be public, then you should let the gardeners/committee know. See the Identity protection policy. To sign your name to your comments, it's the second button on the right above the text box, with the squiggly signature thing, or four ~s. --MegR 20:49, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
As of 2009, she lists herself under two names on Fan History (one, a different pseud and one her real name). "sockii, known sometimes in real life as [redacted], is a collector, website and mailing list organizer, vidder, artist, fanfic archivist and fanzine publisher active in a number of fandoms since 1993." See: If that has changed, see MegR's comment above. --Morgandawn 20:54, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Can someone clarify which name is not supposed to be added to this page? Her legal name? Another pseud? I'm asking because the article What is Fan Art? that is linked on this page explicitly connects the sockii pseud to her legal name and so does her LiveJournal (searchable by Google). --Doro 14:33, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
