Proposed deletion

I propose deleting this article. It doesn't appear to have a fandom, if that changes we create an article in the future -- Kingstoken (talk) 18:16, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

List of references on Fanlore: https://fanlore.org/wiki/Special:WhatLinksHere/Who_Wants_To_Be_A_Millionaire It appears to be very teeny...mainly cropping up as "themes" in other fandoms or as part of cross-over fiction. The show also inspired fan mixers/parties at conventions. Perhaps we'd leave it as a glossary style page? The other idea is for Fanlore to start highlighting pages that need more fandom content ("come save your fandom page from being deleted") may be a motivator.MeeDee (talk) 22:47, 11 March 2019 (UTC)
Found this mention where Henry Jenkins wrote about the fandom in his book: https://henryjenkins.org/?offset=1188812844000 so they must be out there. (So, as well as writing more about Doctor Who fans (because again, this wasn't an either/or; a virtue or a vice), I consciously decided to write pieces about Dawson's Creek fans (for the BFI collection Teen TV) and fans of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire (for the OUP book ITV Cultures) https://www.amazon.com/ITV-Cultures-Catherine-Johnson/dp/033521729X )MeeDee (talk) 22:55, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Removal of "Proposed Deletion" Template

I'm putting the template back on, and pushing the date up two weeks. Please don't remove this template again without discussing the subject on this talk page. --MPH (talk) 12:53, 31 March 2019 (UTC). Added: while there has been some discussion on the talk page, there's no plan of action. Should this page be redirected like Jeopardy? Aside from a link to DA, has anyone found more fanworks? --MPH (talk) 13:02, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
